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 wh

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
I am actually speechless at the moment... I literally just finished reading this one, and all I can think is : What the hell did I just read??????

First of all, this fourth book in the series is not a romance theme at agll. I also can’t even say that Sebastian’s a hero of this story. He is anything but a hero... believe me he’s not someone who I’d want to capture his attention from. The guy is certifiably crazy!!!
I will finish this review tomorrow when I’m more awake 😂

Recommends it for: Dark souls
Genre: Dark Suspense
Type: Book 4 of 7 from The Elite Seven series
POV: First Person - Male

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.

So far Envy is hands down my favorite book from The Elite Seven series. I loved the thriller type vibe it had and that it was almost like reading a book through a serial killers mind. There's no doubt, Sebastian was more than a little unhinged but damn if I didn't find it intriguing. There was no telling what he would do to get what he wanted and that's what made it so captivating to read.

As a whole, this book was full of mostly just scenes that were featured in th

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.
4.5 Stars

Sebastian Westbrook is on the cusp of getting everything he wants; a woman to love, independence and success of his own. With certain thoughts influencing his decisions, the path he takes isn’t free of obstacles, but Sebastian feels like it’s all going to change.

“To feel things as deeply and personal as I do is a curse.”

Told solely from Sebastian’s POV, getting into his dark mind is seamless and is a place where boundaries don’t exist. Standing out from the previous books, Sebastia

I have no idea what just happened… because nothing exciting actually occurred, except this character becoming so unhinged and deranged, he succumbed to unexpected self-destructive ways. Sebastian Westbrook embodied his given sin—despite having a handsome appearance, a charming persona and unlimited riches, he is envious, consumed by an obsession to possess something everyone appears to have: a romantic relationship.

ENVY! This book was not a romance. It was so different from the first three books, but I think it worked perfectly with the whole story.

Sebastian was... awful. I felt sorry for him. He was just a villain looking for love. I didn't get all the answers I wanted, but I did get some of them.

This was my first M.N. Forgy, and I have to say I really enjoy her writing style—her crazy side is fascinating so gimme all her books, please.

My name is Sebastian Westbrook.

Sebastian has all the material comforts in live, he has riches, health, happiness but is desperately seeking for the one woman who will be madly in love with him.

Of the four books that have already been released in this series, Sebastian is the one character that had me jaw slacking during the whole book and glued to my iPad.

"Once upon a time, an angel fell in love with a devil-it ended in chaos."

Envy is alluring with just the right dose of danger.

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

We all knew Sebastian was going to be a weird one, but WOW is he entertaining!!!!
“That killing seems so easy scares me sometimes.”

Not only is Sebastian’s craziness incredibly entertaining, but this book is extremely different from its predecessors. In ENVY, this series takes a sharp turn and flies into the dark side!!! Also different from the rest, this book ends with a fabulously disturbing cliffhanger. Usually I hate cliffhangers, but knowing the next book is around the corner,

“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.

Seriously. I’m sitting here with my jaw wide open and scratching my damn head wondering WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?!?


Envy is definitely more on the faster pace of things. It escalated really quick and to where things went... yeah, it got dark. Pretty fucking dark.

The twists.

"Let's just say there is the man I am, and the one I wish I was."

Sebastian Westbrook is not your average Joe. In fact, I thought something was super creepy about him when he was introduced in Wrath. Sebastian was the epitome of envy. He saught, he wanted and he KILLED. This guy was a serious psychopath. But again I am just floored how M.N. wrote this book. Again we get questions answered but she moves the story forward with Sebastian. This book is so necessary and on point. It was a major factor

2.5 - 3 STARS

If you've been following along with this series, prepare yourself for a book that is not like the others. Sebastian matches his sin 100%, he's completely indulgent in every aspect of his life and not going to lie, he terrified me. I can't say that I've been looking forward to his story, but now that I've finished this, I'm a bit at a loss for words.

Now I didn't hate this book, but it definitely sums up to something that I don't tend to read at all. It seems like Forgy has a knack fo

After reading this book, I expected the monotone story line. It was becoming too repetetive with nothing making say it was different in every angle. Sebastian's character is not what I expected, & I don't know how to leave a review without giving the story away. Loved everything about it because it was not what I envisioned & because I thoroughly enjoyed how the story was written. It kept me interested, which I love books to do that, & kept me wanting mor

Sebastian is one of a kind. 

After his parents died, Sebastian went to live with his uncle, who was not an upstanding citizen. Once he was with his uncle, he never wanted for anything. Except for love. He always wanted to be loved. 

When his uncle gave him an ultimatum after an accident, go to college at St. Augustine college and find a way to join the Elite Seven, Sebastian really had no other choice. 

Sebastian finds his way into the Elite Seven but it's not all roses for him. And it gets more co

Oooh this series is getting CRRRAZY! Envy just blew me away! I had some strong opinions about Sebastian going into this book, but he was just so much more than I expected! I loved this one. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Ok, this one I was not as much of a fan of. Sebastian is kinda creepy and very stalkerish. However, I am not sure why the Elite have an issue with him. It seems to me that they allow all kinds of crazy perverted things to happen and they just help them cover it up. Sebastian was treated differently in this. They seem to be trying to distance him from the Elites. I am curious if the the other 6 guys know what he has really done. This seems like something that could tear the brotherhood apart and ...more

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?

Envy is the fourth book in The Elite Seven series and is definitely more on what I expected from these books, but it lacked in some areas for me.

Envy felt a tad rushed and didn't really elude to anything new going on. We did get some "behind the scenes" on things that had happened in previous books but there was nothing truly new that developed til near the end. However, this book is the only one that truly delves into the actual sin, envy.

Sebastian (Envy) definitely isn't a likeable

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!

This is my first reaction after reading Envy.

It's not that I didn't like Envy, because I did, I just could not believe what actually happened in it. Sebastian is definitely envious. He wants the one thing he doesn't have - a woman to be madly in love with him.

"I have everything in life--riches, health, happiness--but I don't have the one thing I long for: a woman to be madly in love with me--a woman who would drop to her knees and wear a black crown marred from my family name just to be close
