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 inte

Quite different than I expected!

I figured with the title, that this book would be highly erotic but it was actually very funny. Rhett and his best Friend Godfrey “God” are pretty normal college Freshmen. Though they are from wealthy families, they have normal teenage issues, some deeper than others. They get high and party and drink themselves stupid at times.

Too many times I’ve woken up in a stranger’s place surrounded by the sin of the night before. I pat my hands over my body. Naked

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?

Lust by Ker Dukey - The Elite 7 Series

GENRE: Dark Romance
NARRATION: First Person- Rhett’s POV
BOOK DETAILS: Book #1 In the Elite 7 series

The Elite is a secret society with power unimaginable. To be a member, is one of highest honor. Follow their rules and you will have endless: WEALTH, POWER, and FAME. Once you are selected, you must pass initiation. And meet the brotherhood. Your brothers in arms. A bond so lethal it is unbendable and unbreakable.
***3.5 Stars!!!***

I’m still wondering what exactly is the total benefit to being an Elite! I know there is wealth, power, and prestige but I didn’t see a lot of that just yet with the seven that were picked.
I did enjoy this but more towards the second half. I found the first half to be slow and I was constantly waiting for the romance aspect to it. I feel that the romance side of things took the backseat for most of the story. I can excuse that a bit considering this is the first book and we are

Title: Lust ( The Elite Seven #1)
Author: Ker Dukey


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!

Lust by Ker Dukey is the first book in the series and for me, it was a good starting point.

“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 impres

“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

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.

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.

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!!!

Lust is the beginning of The Elite Seven world, and Ker Dukey introduces to a world of sin and debauchery that is sure to be pushed through the next 6 books.

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

"Lust is a violent desire, destructive and uncontrollable.

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.

I loved seeing the many different sides of Rhett. His personality was pretty malleable based on the situations he was in, and that made him very intriguing to me.

2 Didn't Really Do It For Me Stars

So on GR, 2 stars = "it was okay," so I wanted to preface my review with that in mind... This one just didn't really do it for me --- it felt much more YA than dark romance (and I am not a YA fan). The plot was pretty shallow; the reader wasn't even introduced to the female MC to at least halfway through the story (possibly even more than that), so there wasn't much time to become invested in her as a character before the book wrapped up.

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.

I truly appreciated reading Ker Dukey’s novel in this “The Elite Seven” series written by seven different authors…each book bearing the title of one of the famous seven deadly sins. Each book explores the initiation of one of the deserving members… the (“uincendum natus”) …into the “The Elite Seven” bearing the title of one of the sins.

Lust is the first book in The Elite Seven series. The series revolves around 7 young men who are selected to be a part of an elite group where their sins make them rich and powerful. This book follows Rhett who is elected to be Lust in the group. This sin fits Rhett quite well because he is known to be a panty chaser and womanizer.

My review is more focused on the entirety of the series rather than just this first novel. Being that this series is very well reviewed I won’t go into the whole plot or each sin just the bits I enjoyed the most.

Lust, Pride and Envy were my favorites. God aka Gluttony was close to making the list but his romantic storyline lacked a certain something. The best romantic match was Sloth and his church mouse. They seemed most compatible. By far the highlight of the entire Elite is Envy. Envy was a

The story was shallow with meh plot twist (if you can call it a plot twist). The hero went from bad boy to sweet boy and the heroine from nerd to nympho. The Elite Club is supposed to be secret but almost every one knew about it or was a member of the club and some scenes were rather disgusting than sexy. Idk, it just wasn't for me, I guess.

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.

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.
