Review: Devoured by Emily Snow (Ages 18+)

Devoured (Devoured, #1)AmazonB&NAuthor Site
Ebook, 202 pages
Published October 9th 2012

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.

          My Review:

     I really hate to write reviews that isn't completely in favor of the story itself. I feel as if I have no right to say what's not good or not, because the author worked so hard on her book. But "Devoured" didn't devour me. In my opinion it fell kind of short with the whole love/attraction part with both characters. Though Sienna knew Lucas before the book started, there really wasn't much of character development. She really didn't go into much of what happened between the two in the past. I want to know what happened, what lead to them getting together and what lead them to fall apart. I was left with questions. But I read on goodreads that she has a 0.5 book "All Over You" out. So I'm definitely going to read that to see if it can answer my questions.

     Sienna was a sweet character. She loved her grandma and would do anything for her but I did NOT like her much. She was a very weak woman. No backbone whatsoever. She allowed people to talk to her which ever way they felt like and walk all over. She didn't speak up for herself at all. It was Lucas that kind of brought it out of her to stand up for herself and even he walked all over her.

     Lucas was cool. I don't get why he even tried buying Sienna's grandmother's house in the first place. Did he know it was Sienna's grandmother's house? Which in that case I can see how he decided to use it as leverage. I don't know. I didn't become a fan of his at all. Usually rock stars in books are sexy and all, but he didn't do it for me. By the time I finished the book, I came to the conclusion he's a bit of an a** and I didn't like him for Sienna.

     So the deal in this story is that she has to spend ten days with him as his personal assistance. I have read other stories that fall into this kind of plot. So this isn't a first for me. But moving on, so being around him is a test of her self strength. Will she keep her ground or let herself be "Devoured". Personally this story was okay. I think it had tons of potential to blow it out of the box. But it didn't do it for me. However, I will read the second book in sequel "Consumed" because I'm just that curious. And she has another story called "Tidal" which I hear is a lot different from this one. I'm also going to read that one. So I haven't given up on this author. I give this book a 3/5 stars because it kept my interest long enough to finish it and I definitely want to read where these characters end up. So Ms. Snow did her job to entertain me.
