It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when

descriptionWhat da f-ck did I just read?? (lol) I don't even know what to say. I legit think this one was my favorite of the series, but I still didn't like it. #SorryNotSorry It was basically a rehashing of a bunch of prior events. The Elite and task aspect was a blip. Again we had a bunch of pointless OW sex scenes. However, at least this one didn't force us into an underdeveloped romance because there is NO romance in this book at all. Kudos to the author for that because I personally think all the book

Who the heck is Sabastian?

Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.

Envy was the first character in the series to live up to his sin. I've never seen someone so consumed with want and need and obsession in my life! Even now, at the end of his book, I don't think he knows who he is or even learned his lesson. He's conniving and manipulative and sneaky and clingy and charming and good looking and rich... and still so envious of others.

With Envy, I experienced one of t

Sebastian Westbrook had everything he wanted but not one thing that he truly needed. While not thrilled with the changes in his life, he knew this was his opportunity to take what he craved. If envy is the root of all evil then he’d gladly serve his soul on a silver platter to finally own the one that caught his heart.

I am literally scratching my head after having read this Envy. I don't whether I liked this one or not 🤷🏻♀
I mean, sure...Sebastian's character definitely exuded his sin en point but other than that..this book was Kind of all over the place yet still lacked something.
Sebastian freaks me out... There were so many moments that made me really uncomfortable with his creepy, overly needy, stalker-ish vibe.

This book had NO ROMANCE yet had so many sex scenes that just made me wonder wtf was going on. As

Envy by M.N. Forgy is the fourth book in The Elite Seven series. This novel is told in Sebastian's point of view!

I have been waiting for this book since I found out about this series! M.N. Forgy is one of my favorite authors so saying Envy was my most anticipated from the series would be a complete understatement. I've been dying for Sebastian's story since I w

Omg! Dark, dark, dark!!!!! Envy’s story was definitely different from the rest of the Elite. I’m pretty much speechless. Sabastian’s demons were a lot more deeper and unforgivable. I found myself pitying Sab because don’t we all just want that special someone to love us? I enjoyed the fast pace and dark corners of his mind. I can’t wait to see where this series takes us next!

Warning: To avoid spoilers, do not read this review if you have not read the previous books in this series.

An unexpected installment in this series, this author turns up the dark and crazy!

Four books into this series, and so far, things have become a little predictable. That is until this book. Given how book ends, with Sabella missing, and Sebastian looking all sorts of bad, I expected some tension in this book, and the author didn't disappoint.

That was not at all what I expected, though, to be honest, I really shouldn’t even bother with expectations after how Wrath ended...that “ending” brought out a pretty violent reaction (which I suppose is fitting since it was Wrath’s book) but this on. This one just has me in a state of shock?

I don’t know how to explain it, I’m just kind of mind blown with all that happened in Envy and where things went. It was awesome, gritty, dark

Envy (The Elite Seven #4) by M.N. Forgy. This is the story of Sabastian Westbrook aka Envy. His sin fits him to a T. Not satisfied with what he has, he always want what others have and he isn't above killing to get it. I loved the way in which this story was told. The book starts out with a teaser with his connection to Sabella then switches to how Sabastian Westbrook ended up at St. Augustine as well as background on how he became who he is. He is a sick and twisted individual which made for a ...more

Welp. That was fucked up.

Seriously. Sebastian Westbrook is one severely disturbed individual that you DO NOT want to underestimate.

Sebastian was the embodiment of his sin - Envy. He has everything that money can buy, except for the one thing money can’t buy… to be loved. He’s been deprived of affection since his parents died when he was little and as an adult he’s starved for it. He envies everyone who has what he doesn’t, but when he sets his sights on Wrath’s sister Sabella, he thinks that she

A dark tale that will reveal some truths. Questions will be answered, but the dynamic within the Elite Seven will irrevocably change. Loss, betrayal and obsession will tear their world apart.

Sebastian was raised by his aunt and uncle after he lost his parents. A home that provided anything he wanted, but never love or affection. Now love and affection has become all he thinks about. Love from the perfect woman.

Sabella has become his sole focus. She’s too sweet to avoid him, so she puts him in th

“You never know who you’ll need at your disposal the day the devil comes knocking for souls, and making friends with everyone gives me a goddamn army.”

Wow so Sebastian is an actual psychopath! But at the same time I felt sorry for him because all he wanted was to be loved. He is dark and twisted, lethal, obsessive and just all kinds of messed up.

Holy hell what did I just read! So from the beginning I haven’t liked Sebastian he just annoyed me and always got me angry in this series. Now we see why! Sebastian is one psycho sob and that’s putting it mildly. We never know what Sebastian is gonna do cause his mind is one game for himself. But I gotta say I loved this book! Specially the ending!

This is the 4th book in The Elite Seven series, and I was NOT prepared for the story and character that M.N. Forgy brought with it!!! WOW - Sebastian, otherwise known as Envy, is a dark and twisted character. Up until this book, you know that he has some secrets and crazy habits, but you will be shocked to find out exactly how deep those run.

I truly am loving the series, but Envy his characters has left me a bit off. its kind of hard to explain my emotions and thoughts on this. Envy might be the most messed up of all the Elites.

Envy by M.N. Forgy is another stunning story in Elite Seven Series. This story is about the deepest part of human mind that is violent, destructive yet beautiful. This story is about raw passion, darkest desires, dangerous obsession and complicated mind games beyond your wildest imagination.

One of the best things about this series is the introduction of new to me authors! There hasn't been a book yet in this series that hasn't been fantastic.  

Envy is another story in this series that took my down the rabbit hole!  This is the first book by M.N. Forgy and it won't be my last!

Envy is Sebastian's story.  I have been waiting, not so patiently for this one! He was the most elusive and mysterious Elite member to me so far. 

Sebastian is a twisted fellow, but you can't help

This story was fast, lethal and left my jaw wide open, but that’s the joy of The Elite you get what nobody would even dream off and then a little more just to make sure your mind is completely blown!!

Sebastian Westbrook has lived his life always wanting what everyone else has, whether it’s a girl or a car he will take it no matter the consequences(which there are none) even when his uncle sets him one task to complete then walks away.

I’m completely surprised by the story described in Envy. I completely didn’t expect such a turn of events, seriously. I can’t even say that I like the main character because in my opinion Sebastian Westbrook has a decent mental disorder. And yet, I liked this story. This read kept me under constant suspense and I couldn’t predict what would happen next.

Envy is a very dangerous feeling. Sebastian Westbrook knows it well and will not rest until he gets what he wants. Are there any limits? Not for

I'm speechless ... literally lost for words. M.N. Forgy's ENVY is not what I expected it to be. It was so much more dark and twisted than Lust, Pride and Wrath. The depiction of envy as a sin was absolutely perfect. Sebastian Westbrook was Envy personified, right down to the smallest and most intricate detail.
