Seven Deadly Sins, #1

‘Lust’ is the first book in the Seven Deadly Sins series by Laura B. Cooper. Liz moved to New York shortly after she graduated from law school for multiple reasons. One of the reasons was to get away from her former master Benton Frazier. Liz stubbles upon Carlton and maybe he is a good distraction.

Liz is a smart and sexy woman who puts her family before anything. She moves to New York because her brother Parker is working on his fashion career. As a submissive, she has had a tough time with her last master. She wants to start her life fresh.

Carlton is a partner in the law firm where Liz works and lives in the same building as Liz. Carlton is a hot, sexy man with a great English accent. While he has his own issues, he has fallen for Liz.

The chemistry between Liz and Carlton is explosive. The sex scenes were sizzling hot. Liz and Carlton make a good match in and out of the bedroom. I loved that Carlton did not want to make Liz uncomfortable at work and respected the boundaries she set because of it.

Overall, I really liked this story. I loved how the author incorporated the title into the story. I found this to be a very well written stale and I cannot wait for the rest of the books in the series.

Book Blurb for Lust

It was a fresh start, and as a recent graduate from the Charleston School of Law, it was a way to pad her resume with a high powered New York Law firm. But most of all, it was away from him.

The last thing she needed was another relationship, especially since her devastating break up with her master, Benton Frazier. Burned one too many times, this submissive was ready to put her past behind her. She just never figured on Carlton.

Liz could have easily taken a local job offer in Charleston. However, since her brother waited for her to graduate, it was now his time to pursue his fashion career in New York City. Now that her parents were gone, Palmer was all she had. Everything seemed to be falling into place until she met him. Now, all she can think about is Carlton.

Carlton was dreamy. Handsome, rugged, and well dressed. Deep brown eyes the color of chocolate, and the silken voice with a hint of an English accent that simply drove her crazy. But she soon finds out that Carlton is much more than he appeared to be.

Although not her first choice, New York did offer her a way to pad her resume while her brother completed his education. Besides, getting away from her relationship with Benton Frazier was just what the doctor ordered.
