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.

My Review

★★★★☆

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 is a violent desire, destructive and uncontrollable.

Suffering a great loss, Rhett was a man lost. He was broken and distraught and had to find ways to numb himself just to get some sleep. That is until he meets Chastity, who was able to calm his storm within. Their initial meetings were more inline with enemies-to-lovers and their banter was off the hook. I loved Chastity's spunk and how she tried to give as good as she got. She was a sweetheart without being a pushover and I enjoyed getting to know her through Rhett's eyes. The fact that their relationship was more of a slow build was a bit of a surprise, but she ended up being quite lusty herself.

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.

The Elite Seven is just as it sounds - exclusive. Its members enjoy some sweet perks and Rhett has found a brotherhood among the other inductees. The stage is set and with one heck of a cliffhanger, I'm looking forward to getting to know the other members better.

Whose blood is that?

Pride is next!

About The Author
My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles...prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
