Synopsis:

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:

Devoured is book one in Emily Snow’s Devoured Series.  Being a sucker for a delicious cover, and this definitely falls into that category, I was drawn in at first sight and I gotta say….the story was just as delish as the cover!

Sienna Jensen is a country girl at heart living in L.A., sharing an apartment with her crazy-but-amazing roomie, just barely making ends meet with a job fellow wardrobe stylists would kill for and trying to forget her past.  She vows never to head back to her hometown and all the drama and gossip that comes with it but when she gets numerous calls in a row from her younger brother, she knows something has to be wrong.  Sienna’s fears are realized when she finds out something is wrong…her Gram is in financial trouble and the only place she ever really truly called home is going to be foreclosed on leaving her Gram with nowhere to go.  So naturally, Sienna ends up back in her hometown trying to figure out what to do.  But when Sienna realizes who is trying to take her Gram’s home she realizes she is in way over her head…and in over her heart.

The last person Lucas Wolfe ever thought he’d see in this court hearing is the beautiful red-head he left behind two years earlier.  But here Sienna is, in this very courtroom fighting for her Grandmother’s home…the very home he wants to acquire.  Talk about the fates smiling upon him.  He hasn’t stopped thinking about Sienna since their relationship began, and abruptly ended, two years earlier.  He knows by the scathing looks she’s giving him, she has no interest in reliving that experience… and now there’s a little issue of him holding the deed to her beloved Gram’s house in his hands.  Lucas Wolfe is used to getting what he wants…and Sienna happens to be one of the things he desires most.  Can you see where this is going?

Sienna and Lucas have a lot more in common than they think and despite living totally different lifestyles, are more alike then they realize.  Both of them will have to fight to overcome ghosts of their pasts and people wishing them the worst at every turn.  But the question ends up being, are they both fighting for the same thing?  Will love and trust ever be something they can win?

Not only am I a sucker for a delish cover, but I’m also a sucker for a scrumptious bad boy rocker with a soft side, a damaged heart and an effed up past…all of which describes the luscious Lucas.  He is the ultimate damaged hero and I alternated between scoffing at his attitude and going all mushy over his words to Sienna.  Perfect combo, if you ask me!  Sienna is the perfect match for him.  She’s a gal who has learned some harsh lessons about love and trust in the past and isn’t willing to make the same mistakes twice but also knows when someone is genuinely trying to make up for their past offenses and is willing to forgive…but she never forgets.  Another perfect combo! Together they have chemistry that ignites the pages. And some of the hot scenes in this book are proof of that (I may never look at a piano the same way again *cough*) I have to say, that by the last 15 or so pages I was really nervous it was going to end on one of those unfulfilling cliff hangers but HALELUJAH it didn’t!  The ending is perfect.  totally swoon worthy that leaves the reader happy but still wanting more with a hint of the mess lurking in Lucas’ past.  Oh, how I love those kind of endings!

This was a quick, intense, delicious read that I recommend for all you book-bad-boy lovers!  I am SO looking forward to the next book in the series, Consumed, which is due out this summer.  Thank you, Emily, for a great read!
