Review: Lust (The Elite Seven #1) by Ker Dukey

Available on

Synopsis:

I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.
I am Rhett Masters.
I am Lust.

Review:

Lust was...just okay. It started off good, I was wrapped up in the story and what was happening in that first chapter, but then it kind of flatlined for me. It was a quick, easy read but missing something. Things just happened and it was like okay...I guess, but really? I don't know.

I was surprised by how much I was enjoying this story when I started it as I am not the biggest fan of this author. So I was enjoying the story and then all of the secret society stuff came up and it felt out of place. Like it didn't fit with the story or make sense with the characters. If you pulled out all of the Elite stuff and just had it be Rhett and the girl he is falling for, even with people out to try and ruin it, it would have been much better. The Elite stuff wasn't believable and I never really got why Rhett was dead set on getting in. Oh well, it was a quick read and just meh so...maybe the rest will be better.
