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.
Devoured by Emily Snow is about Sienna Jensen, a wardrobe assistant who finds herself face to face with a rock star from her past. One who she never slept with. Consumed with need, Lucas Wolfe finds a way to get close to her by appointing her as his temporary personal assistant, in exchange for her grandmother’s estate.
If you like bad boys, Lucas Wolfe will be up your alley with his possessiveness, rock star confidence and tattooed sexiness. He makes it known that his goal for appointing Sienna as his assistant is to have her beg to be touched, but when they get close, he pushes her away. This usually comes with warning bells and complications, which only surface towards the end of the book.
Emily Snow has mastered the art of writing suggestive sex scenes. It’s not too pornographic or overly descriptive, but just enough to excite. There’s a quote on the back of my copy from which describes it perfectly: “Not many authors can write ‘bedroom talk’ without it sounding a bit like a porno. But, man, Emily can…I highly recommend this.”
My criticism about the book is that upon bumping into Lucas, Sienna decides that she’s not going to let him have his way, and all of a sudden her lust gets in a way and one thing leads to the next. Love was even thrown into the mix which was a complete mystery to me.
Devoured was a quick read that is actually quite thin on the plot or character development. But if you take it for what it is, a short, sexy fun read, you’ll enjoy it like I did. While Lucas reminds me of Christian Grey from his possessiveness and ordering Sienna around, but the writing is fantastic and Sienna can stand up for herself.
Thank you Simon and Schuster Australia for sending me a review copy, in exchange for an honest review. I will be checking out the rest of the Devoured series for a quick, sexy read.
