Book Review: Devoured by Emily Snow

Devoured
(Devoured Series, bk #1)
By Emily Snow

Blurb:
Sienna Jensen had no plans to return home when she graduated college last spring—after all, her dreams lie in California. But when she discovers her grandmother’s Nashville home has been foreclosed, and the new owner has started the eviction process, Sienna has no other choice but go back to Music City. And she comes face to face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she’d see again. The man who now holds the deed to her grandma’s estate.

When millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe finds the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom, he’s both infuriated and intrigued. He still can't get the night Sienna almost spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as it was two years ago. He craves Sienna more than ever. And just like everything Lucas hungers for, he’s determined to have her.

Now, Lucas will do whatever it takes to lure Sienna into his bed, even if that means making a deal with her: ten days with him, playing by his rules, and he’ll hand over the deed to her grandmother’s home. Though she agrees to the arrangement, Sienna is conflicted. Because of her duty to her family. Because of promises she’s made to herself and a past that still haunts her. And as Lucas’s game of seduction continues, and Sienna is introduced to his dark, erotic world and even darker background, she realizes that at any moment, she could be devoured.

Viviana's Review:
I had begun reading "Devoured" and then read on Goodreads that it was suggested that you read "All Over You" a prequel novella as it would assist in filling in some of the information and also get a better understanding of what happened between Lucas and Sienna. So I looked it up, got it and read it. You can read my review of "All Over You" here (Gave it 3.5 - I Really Liked It). After reading "Devoured" I would also recommend reading "All Over You" before you read "Devoured".
I really enjoyed "Devoured". I found it a bit hard at the beginning. Sienna was.. well she was... she was whiney and meek. But I stuck with it and when I was almost halfway through the book, I was loving it and couldn't put it down. Sienna grew as a character and that is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this book!

Ahhh Lucas! What can I say! We all love a bad boy! And his rock star persona is truly a bad boy! However, there's more to him and he has a past and we learn someone is hanging some damaging information over his head.

One of the things I enjoyed most about this book is the relationship between Sienna and Lucas. They talk and actually have conversations. They also read each other rather well. Due to the events that occured 2 years ago (covered in "All Over You) Sienna is hurt and doesn't trust Lucas. Lucas has issues of his own that are hinted throughout the story but never revealed. Due to those issues, as much as he wants to be with Sienna, he's holding back.

Kylie Wolfe, Lucas's sister and personal assistant was one of my favorite characters. She's sassy, sarcastic, doesn't take anything from anyone one (including her own brother). For as tough as she is, she has a soft spot for her brother and wants to see him happy. While you learn that Kylie is as she is with everyone, there's a bit more snark and sass when Wyatt McRae, the guitarist for her brother's band, is involved. The story alludes to a possible past, but nothing is revealed. But talk about TENSION between the two. I was extremly happy to find out that Kylie is getting her own story in Savor You and it includes Wyatt!

This is one steamy and sexy read! The tension is perfect between Lucas and Sienna. The seduction is creative and hot. The man is SEXY!

Really looking forward to how everything plays out in "Consumed"



 Rating: 4 Stars - I Loved It




NOTE: I received "Devoured" in paperback from the publisher for an HONEST review.
