A woman’s work

Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. The only thing that can possibly take her mind off business is the training class at Sanctum…and her training partner, the gorgeous and funny Flynn Adler. If she can just manage to best her mysterious business rival, life might be perfect.

A man’s commitment

Flynn Adler never thought he would fall for the enemy. Business is war, or so his father always claimed. He was raised to be ruthless when it came to the family company, and now he’s raising his brother to one day work with him. The first order of business? The hostile takeover of Slaten Industries. It’s a stressful job so when his brother offers him a spot in Sanctum’s training program, Flynn jumps at the chance.

A lifetime of devotion….

When Flynn realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build? And when Amy finally understands the man she’s come to trust is none other than the enemy, will she walk away from him or fight for the love she’s come to depend on?

My Review:

Devoted is the newest work from author Lexi Blake as well as the latest in the 1,001 Dark Nights 2016 line-up and as always, Ms. Blake had me hooked form the very first page and kept me glued to each word until the very end.

I think one of my most favorite thing Ms. Blake does is add such depth to both her characters and the story as a whole. There’s always more to her books than just a love story and tons of heat. In this novella, not only was there drama surrounding the stresses of working in a family business (which I know all to well first hand!), there was also an element of duplicity on Flynn’s part that I knew was going to make for one hell of a moment when the truth is reveled. And boy, was it ever. That duplicity also led to one of the most amazing endings ever so it all worked out for the best! But before we reach that amazing ending, we are treated to wonderful characters, funny moments, and of course, plenty of sizzling heat. Flynn is the epitome of sexy geek and I loved his vulnerable side when it came to his feelings for Amy. Amy is one tough cookie, and has had to be her whole life. She’s also been pretty unlucky in love which had me in her corner cheering her on the entire time. I wanted nothing more than for her to get her happy ever after! Now I won’t spoil anything, but if you look back a few sentences, I bet you can guess how it went for her 😉

I am always excited for a new Lexi Blake release and whether you’re already a fan or just coming across her work, Devoted is sure to be a novella you will love!
