Title: Lust (The Elite Seven #1)

Author: Ker Dukey

Release Date: February 11th 2019

Pages: 229

Synopsis:

The Elite Seven.

Lust:

I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.

4 stars

This new dark, super exclusive club being presented is very intriguing and I am determined to see it through all 7 books.

SPOILER FREE

Lust is a violent desire, destructive and uncontrollable. If you let the sensation take root, you become captive to its power, until you’re waking up in the wreckage of its path.

P L O T

He’s always had his eye on The Elite for a while now because it’s his ticket way out but to get in there is a price to pay. The Elite works mysteriously and an outsider standing at the door would be left to wonder if anything related to the club is accidental or incidental.

Sacrifice. That’s when you know you love someone, when you’re willing to give up something you want for something you need.

I must say this mysterious club piqued my interest and how the people in their town may or may not know of their existence. I cannot wait to learn more about the club in the upcoming books.

I did not see that plot twist coming, but I knew something big was going to happen.

Grief is a fickle whore. It hits me in waves, reminding me whenever I try to forget.

I can just tell it’ll get darker and darker as each Elite member takes center stage and I can’t wait when plot lines intertwine with the others.

C H A R A C T E R S

Rhett Masters
Lust fits him well with his history of women and charming his way into and out of things. His character is quiet admirable because he has his reasons for wanting to join The Elite and he has a strong sense of determination.

There are seven of The Elites and I still haven’t memorized their names and their assigned sins.

It’s two people sharing pain, learning to live through it, and finding a connection to help us keep living, keep breathing, keep standing, one foot in front of the other, until it stops hurting.

W R I T I N G

Ker Dukey once again graced us with an emotional and slightly dark read. As always, the author writes books that are easy to read and this was a great start to a new series.

Guilt, rooted all the way to my bone marrow, infects me. It’s like an illness inside me I can’t recover from.

O V E R A L L

I think this series is promising. I did get the theme for this first book but I can’t tell you what it is because it’d spoil a huge chunk of the series plot for you. So if you want to know what it is then you better pick up your copy of Lust now.

Everything fucking hurts. My heart wants to flee, but as punishment for what I’ve done, it can’t escape. It’s trapped inside me to suffer in agony.

I am super eager to get my hands on Pride, not only because he’s super mysterious and that is crazy sexy, but that cliffhanger! I get the feeling that these authors are giving us no choice but to look forward for the next book if they keep ending the stories with those kinds of cliffhangers. I’m not complaining though, I love a good cliffhanger.
