This was an interesting start to THE ELITE SEVEN series. I'm not a fan of uber whores (paired with almost virginal heroines) and OW stuff in my books anymore. I think it has been done to DEATH at this point, so I can't say I overly enjoyed most of this one. However, I figured going into this series that none of the books would be free of that type of thing, so I can't complain too much. The writing was excellent. It is a relatively short book, so it moves along at a good pace. The plot was inter

Rhett Masters was the human embodiment of lust. No question. He and his rich bestie lived life in excess - booze, drugs and women. Nothing was too taboo and no risk too high. He wasn't unlike many of his real life teenage counterparts - cocky, arrogant, and with an unhealthy sense of invincibility. What struck me hard about this dude, what allowed me to accept him and all of his flaws, were his reasons. Because really what good is madness if we don't understand it?

This is the first book in The Elite Seven series and my second book written by this author.
The Elite Seven is definitely one of the series I am most excited about this summer.
Truth be told, when I heard about this series I was super pumped. I mean, come on! A book on the seven deathly sins? I'm on it!

My Review:

I struggled with this one as I could only find one likable character through most of the story, yet I was intrigued and couldn’t put my Kindle down.

Lust is the start to The Elite Seven series and introduces us to Rhett Masters, aka Lust. On a downward spiral after the death of his brother, there's only one thing he cares about. And that's being asked to join The Elite Seven. The not-so-secret society that is synonymous with power and wealth. But then he meets Chasity Griffin, the girl that is his complete opposite yet the one that is definitely a game changer for what he wants out of life.

“Your head’s a storm, turbulent and destructive. You need to find the center, the calm. Let me be that for you.”

I literally never thought I’d describe a Ker Dukey read as sweet and emotional, but here we are. Lust was different from the books of hers I usually read, but it was still a good read. It introduces the whole Elite society while going through Rhett’s back story and his love story. Basically the Elite gives Rhett some difficult tasks, and he has to decide whether or not he’s going to do

Another book boyfriend I am now obsessed with! Rhett is a unique, intriguing, sexy character you will quickly fall in love with! In fact, all of the 7 “Elite” fascinated me – I can’t wait to read each of their books! The 7 authors collaborating on this series were smart to have Dukey take the lead, LUST forming a mysterious, intense, smoking hot foundation. Totally unpredictable, all consuming and sexy as hell, Dukey hit it out of the park again!!!

When I heard about the Elite Seven books and saw those gorgeous covers, I was definitely intrigued by the idea and couldn’t wait to see what these fantastic authors would bring. Lust is Book 1 and each book represents one of the cardinal sins. Of course I’m in!

This one started out pretty slow, in fact for the first 25% you don’t even know who’s the heroine or where is this going. However, once it picks up, it will keep you hooked right until the end.

Rhett from the beginning has your sympathy. You understand why he has lost himself to drugs and alcohol and sins of the flush. You understand his need for the secret society and what they have to offer him. You revel in his healing and happiness. He is really just an all around lovable hero w

Woah! What a beginning to a SEVEN book series! I am so excited for the promise this series holds, given the way this one started off. And holy hell....the way it ended!!! Clearly, jaw drops and eye pops are going to be a common occurrence with this series.

What a ride! And interesting introduction to what will become a captivating series centered around a secret society promising an unrivaled amount of wealth, prestige and benefits. I wasn’t really sure what to expect—maybe a dark, erotic romance of intrigue, debauchery and manipulation. However, this isn’t dark, or even erotic as the romance is pushed aside to create the foundation for the series.

I would still take lust over love every fucking time. Fuck love.

“Lust is a force all its own. It consumes the mind and body, and causes even the most loyal to indulge in its sinful ways...
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.”


It's really impressive that these seven books will be written by different authors when they are following the same story, but from different POVs!!! I'm sooo impressive

The concept of this series is brilliant and intriguing. Seven books based on the Seven Deadly Sins - Lust, Pride, Wrath, Envy, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth - written by seven different amazing authors. As soon as I saw it announced on social media, I immediately started salivating at the mouth like a junkie needing a fix for all of these books.

This is a great start to the Elite Seven Series!! The first part of this book shredded my heart with Rhett's tragedy that he had to endure. Then it got super crazy! Secret society, kink, sex, brotherhood, family devastation, and so many twists and turns my head was spinning. I am very excited to read the other books in this series of standalone books written by seven authors revolving around seven men named for the seven deadly sins.

When I saw a post with the premise of The Elite Seven series and the synopsis of Lust I knew they were my kind of book and then HOLY hotness the covers for all of them came out.

The thing I wasn't expecting was the depth of emotion I would feel in the prologue. It was a visceral reaction to Rhett's pain that the author doesn't sugar coat, it was raw and so real. It's a moment that changes the course of his life, now his one hope is to get into The Elite.

I enjoyed Lust, I also love the concept of this series, each book given the name of one of the 7 deadly sins, Lust, Pride, Wrath, Envy, Greed, Gluttony and Sloth, each one of those titles are given to a member chosen by a secret society called the Elite.

Rhett is a playboy so there's no surprise he is given the name Lust.

Ker Dukey sets the groundwork for The Elite Seven. Starting with Rhett aka Lust. I love the concept and mysterious vibe surrounding The Elite.

"Keeping the society’s secret is of utmost importance , and any indiscretion will be punishable by the full force of the society.”

I didn’t award five stars as I thought the book was a little short and not as dark as I was expecting from Ker. But it’s still an amazing book that has left me excited to read the rest of the series.

With a prologue that will have you reaching for the tissues, it's the start to a bumpy ride for Rhett.

A college mentor, an invitation, the most gross dad ever and drowning in grief....what roads will this take Rhett down.....
