Summary from Goodreads:

Before Sienna was devoured, before Lucas was consumed, they were all over each other . . .

Lucas Wolfe is used to getting what he wants—from everyone but one person, that is—so when he meets the wardrobe assistant hired to work his band’s newest video, he’s got to have her. From the moment Sienna first obediently whispers “Yes, Mr. Wolfe”, he knows she’s perfect for him.

Three days.

And he’ll have her stripped down and bound to his bed.

Set two years before the events of DEVOURED, ALL OVER YOU is the story of Sienna and Lucas’s first encounter.

My Thoughts:

Everyone raves about this series so of course I have been wanting to read it for some time now.

Diving into this novella to get things stared made me really interested in the series. I really liked Sienna and Lucas. Sienna seemed to be struggling with some things that her family put her through but she seemed to find a way to come out on top. Plus Lucas was a bad boy rock star who seemed to get any woman he wanted. What kind of woman wouldn’t want that kind of attention. Plus Lucas seemed to want Sienna and maybe even for more than his usual one night deal. I really liked both characters and the back story that is laid out in this book. I certainly wanted to know more about Lucas and what happened with his ex-wife.

Summary from Goodreads:

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 Thoughts:

How can two characters go from interesting to flat on the page so quickly.

This is of course set years later from the novella and now the characters have grown but Lucas still seems to want to find out where Sienna has gone to. She is the one he pissed off and got away without him ever being able to fix that. Of course he wants to try to find her again and get her back but I feel the entire thing was rather boring and just off.

I thought this was a steamy series and I read exactly half of Devoured before I called it quits. The chemistry that I felt in the novella seemed to be missing and Lucas about drove me up a wall he was so boring. All he wanted to do was get her to sign on to be his for the 10 days or whatever time frame it was. That is literally all that happened in the 150ish pages that I did read of this book before calling it quits. Where the heck was the passion, the romance, the apology! I wanted more and I also learned from reading others reviews on Goodreads that they never explain Lucas’ past in this book where that was all the author talked about in the novella. Sigh.

If you want to read about a real sexy dominant rock star I suggest that you don’t waste your time on this. I suggest you go pick up Backstage Pass or any of the Sinners on Tour books by Olivia Cunning and read those instead. It seems authors just do not make sexy romantic men anymore like they use to. Lucas was a disappointment. In fact most romance men these days in these New Adult or barely Adult books have bored me out of my mind. Where did all of the book boyfriends go!??!

    Ahh it’s such a shame Devoured wasn’t anywhere near as good as the novella. I’m finding myself falling less for romantic leads these days too, though I wonder how much of that is just down to me having read about so many similar ones already. Thanks for the helpful reviews, Alexa!
