Hmmm...this book (like book one) was a little bit of a mixed bag. I felt the romance in this one was a bit more developed but still took a backseat to Mason's background and the whole "Elite Seven" storyline. Which for me is the highlight of these books. I did like the fact that we didn't get too much OW stuff. The hero wasn't a manwhore. I didn't much care for the fact that this was an older woman/younger man story and the first sex scene was a little much. Mainly because it seemed SO over the

Wow...just wow

Pride is the second book of the elite seven series, and doesn't JD hollyfield do it justice, I was hanging on her every word!!

Another elites journey, another amazing story.

Prides story is different from lust but in a way that grabs you, you feel him deep in your gut, its still full of heartbreak and angst but also fury so fearce it could bring down everything around you.

Prides story was written brilliantly, it had me gripped from the first page, I did want to throw my kindle with

The Elite Seven series includes 7 books, by 7 authors, about 7 Deadly Sins. The entire premise of the series of an ultra secret and elite society sucked me in with the first book, Lust. I absolutely could not wait to get my hands on Pride! As the second installment in the series, Pride by J.D. Hollyfield, tells Mason’s story. Prepare your heart, because it’s tragic, forbidden, taboo, and highly addictive. This book was all-consuming, unputdownable, and a whirlwind to read.

5 out of 5 stars!!!

This series of books may very well kill me as I wait between each one!! Mason’s book was harder than Rhett’s. Mason’s life was uprooted and he was so abused in the system that I hated each person that took advantage of him. My heart broke each time he’d experience another boot kick or baton whacking….and most of all, I really came to despise Lillian.

Megan and Mason’s first encounter was HOT. Their second encounter was almost comical. The time they spent together helped heal m

If you aren’t already hooked on this series after reading Lust, then this one will do it. The concept behind these books has lured me in and I’m completely hooked!

Pride is the leader, the alpha of The Elite Seven, “the essence of all sin”. Mason’s story is unputdownable...a little taboo and a whole lot steamy!

Mason, caught in a situation he can’t get out of, trying to survive, worried about the only person in his life he cares about...his sister. Eventually forced to do whatever he’s told to d

Dangerous, Deceptive and Captivating are the words I would use to describe Pride. This series is going to be the death of me. This book delves deeper into the twisted and depraved word of the super elusive Elite. We get to understand the mentality of the person who is pulling the newly appointed Elite members strings.

Mason Blackwell, Pride, is being punished for crimes he did not commit. He was ripped away from the people he care about. All so he is forced to submit and be at the mercy of th

YAY! This second book in The Elite Seven Series WOWed me, just like the first book! I love when I jump into a new series kind of clueless as to what's to come and it just unfolds in front of my eyes and drags me in. J.D. Hollyfield, another new author for me, just completely captured me and took me hostage with her story of Mason Blackwell, Pride, the Alpha of the Elite Seven group. It was dark, gritty, steamy, and I couldn't read fast enough to satisfy my curiosity as to what was to come. For m ...more

I have to admit Jessica really out did herself this time. I wasn't sure what to expect going into this one and I was pleasantly surprised at how different it was than her typical rom-coms that I have come to expect from her. This one is darker than her previous books but oh so good. She absolutely nails it and of course what would a J.D. Hollyfield book be without all the feels? Not a J.D. Hollyfield book that's for sure and she doesn't let me down...dark AND all the feels, doesn't get much bett ...more

5 STARS FOR PRIDE!! This Elite Seven is blowing mind on how addicting this series is. I need my next fix already....I NEED BOOK #3. Mason....oh Mason this hot sexy as sin boy they call Pride...is EVERYTHING. Mason and Meghan story is forbidden and that is what makes it juicy with lots of sexiness, suspense, drama and love. Another page turning story for this series. This was my first book by this author and I can't wait to read more books from her.

There is sooo much I wanna say about this book but I’m gonna bite my tongue. Because you need to experience it all with no spoilers. It’s intense, dark, and even heartbreaking. We meet Mason aka Pride in this book and where it all begins. Mason and his sister mean the world to each other but get torn away. What would you do for the one person you love? I’m truly enjoying this crazy series and can’t wait for more. Lillian I gotta say is one evil person! 5/5 stars

DEVOURED this book! Haha. Like i couldn't put this down it was that good. I loved reading Pride's story. Mason and Evie are siblings that haven't had things always go their way and thats putting it lightly. This author did a phenomenal job adding on to the Elite7 story. I can't wait to read the next installment it just keeps getting better!

Pride is Book #2 in The Elite Seven Series! I am loving that each book is from a different author, the different writing styles make this series all the more noteworthy!

In Pride, we are introduced to Mason Blackwell.
Pride, the leader of the seven, the conduit between the initiating members and The Elite.

“Pride is more than the first of the seven deadly sins; it is itself the essence of all sin.- John Scott”

Mason Blackwell had a terrible childhood. His parents died when he was younger and he and
