Pride – J.D. Hollyfield

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’d like to thank Terrie for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated, so I read Lust which was book 1 of the Elite 7.

So this book was so much more intense than the first one, I actually really loved this one compared to the first one!

Mason was so intense. I really liked his character, how protective he was of his sister as well as his new “brothers”. Although we saw him as strong and fit we saw the sensitive side that Mason did have and I really loved that. Mason and Evie’s story was so heartbreaking I felt so bad for both of them.

I really loved Megan and Mason together, they were so cute. I felt they had a really good connection and I also loved the student professor thing, although there wasn’t much emphasis on it. I loved their relationship.

I felt like mason had a lot of responsibility with his brothers and I like how he took care of them. I love Evelyn and I love that she just wants her brother safe.

The sex was very well written. The story was very well written with a very compelling storyline it kept me hooked and gripped all the way through. The ending, what an ending! I cannot wait for the next one. I don’t really want to go into really full detail about the plot because I think you should go into it not really knowing much!
