BookWhisperer Rating:

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.

When I think of Devoured I immediately break it down into two parts. There is the story of Lucas and Sienna that just has me captivated and addicted with the constant need for more. Then there is the submissive and controlling side of the story that seemed to turn me off a bit. I can jump on the submissive band wagon to a certain extent, but for some reason this story was more controlling than foreplay. I don't know if that was the intended angle, but it seemed to overpower me a bit. Lucas and Sienna are incredibly deep characters and I loved them, but I felt as though there was part of the story that I could have done without. In the end, I am still captivated by what will come for Lucas and Sienna. Devoured holds an incredibly extensive amount of potential that I was felt was limited and untapped. I am anxious to see if the remainder of this series can pull it all together, and overcome the barriers that I observed here.
