Release Date: February 11, 2019
Genre: New Adult. College Romance.
Actual Rating: 4 stars
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.
All in all, I think Ker Dukey did a good job at bringing Rhett's character and the lust sin together. While we didn't get to read about his sexual conquests (they are just talked about in terms of how he was BEFORE the accident -I won't spoil it and say what-) readers get the gist in terms of how the ladies perceive him. I think I would have rated the book a bit higher had the sexual conquests been an integral part of the story (that IS what lust is about after all), but having it in the periphery was fine too.
Readers may wonder if this is a romance. Yes, it is. Although Rhett has had his share of women in the past, he does meet that one girl who changes everything for him. She is the good girl whereas he is the bad boy. She's the daughter of the schools dean and enjoys reading books rather than partying. And she certainly tames Rhett when it comes to playing the field. I personally love a bad boy/good girl romance and this one fit the bill! However, I would have liked to have a little more buildup with their relationship- the author wrote it too fast with not enough filling.
Overall, I think this is a good start to the series and I do plan to read the rest of the books. I am intrigued to see what happens next because the way this one ended left me feeling all sorts of excitement. I wouldn't say this is a cliffhanger per se, but it does leave you hanging in terms of how the next characters story will start! I can't wait to read it.
