‘Lust: to have an intense desire or need: Crave specifically: to have a sexual urge’
A simple, straightforward statement of the definition of lust. Easy-peasy, right? Wrong. Trilina does a wonderful job of intertwining life, lust, love and realism. As a reader, you feel all the emotions that she is provoking along with, shock, hope, laughter and eventually the cherishing of each other between Dom and Drew.
Drew Matthews has been recently promoted to VP of Marketing at her company. Her best friend, Gretchen, works right alongside her. As a way to celebrate, they get all dolled up and decide to hit the town. Drew is a beautiful soul, inside and out, so it’s not a shock that she gets hit on as soon as she is there. None of these men interest her, until one. Despite being a strong individual, she is easily flustered when in the presence of a handsome man.
‘I mean, sorry…I’m a meat eater.’…’What I mean is, I would love the steak, but I’m not sure if I can fit that much meat in me.’

Trilina Pucci has created not only an exquisite book, but she has established a firm foothold in the background stories, which set her up nicely, for the next book, Envy. Are you catching a theme here? You guessed it, each book is based off the seven deadly sins and personally, I can’t wait! I, absolutely, loved everything about ‘Truth’ and am excited for more.
‘Baby, we’re just getting started. I’m not your god—I’m your King.’
