The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
But who said the devil was a he?
In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.
She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.
Seven tasks set forth by the devil herself, promising nothing less than the forbidden fruit of power. What they don’t understand is it will all end in bloodshed and regret.
They call me the alpha. The one in charge. The one with pride bigger than any task I could be given. And my pride won’t let me be anywhere but at the top of the food chain until she gives me what I truly want.
My task is Meghan Benedict.
She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
As they say, pride comes before the fall.
I am Mason Blackwell.
I am Pride.

I finished this with an "Oh my frickin god, it's heating up and I want to get burned"
Now it's starting to feel like a series and one to get excited about! If you like suspense and a little dark, hell yes, I can't wait for the next book now.
7 authors, 7 books, 7 sinners, I for one need to confess that I loved the excitement the whole plot delivered.
Pride AKA Mason has been manipulated and blackmailed into being in the Elite. Mason went from foster care with his sister to Prison and then later released, given his freedom only if he does what is expected of him.
His life has been controlled, his choices have been limited, he has been separated from his sister leaving him one choice for them to stop holding all the cards, making his life hell and that was by agreeing to be in the Elite and be their puppet. Mason went from one hell to another and although he is now free he is still controlled.
Who are pulling the strings? That is a question I am hoping will be revealed as the series continues.
His task is to ruin Meghan Benedict the only problem is he receives his task after meeting Meghan and having a hot encounter, ruining her is the last thing on his mind.
The whole plot is filled with suspense and mystery, there's a lot more of the Elite to discover, who is pulling the strings on these 7 boys who are expected to do their bidding and how can they band together and bring down an organisation that was designed to make them powerful but at the same time is ruining their lives.
I am looking forward to how the whole series unfolds.
Meghan and Mason's relationship was hot and I am hoping to see more of them in the next book, I didn't see much of Rhett and Chastity from the previous book in Mason's story but the timelines do cross so some parts regarding these characters which were in the first book are there but from Mason's point of view.
The plot is continuous so you do need to read Lust first, starting where it all began and how the boys first meet.
