Emily Snow Consumed Review

Title: Consumed

Author: Emily Snow

Series: Devoured #2

Genre: Romance, New Adult

Length: 320 pages

Format: ebook



Description (from that Lucas has declared his love for her, Sienna is sure the drama between them is over.

She’s not afraid of Lucas’s ex-wife or whatever secret the other woman is holding over him. For two blissful days—the remainder of Sienna’s contract with Lucas—they hole up in a vacation house in the mountains of Tennessee, consuming each other. At the end of their stay, Lucas comes to Sienna with a proposition: his band, Your Toxic Sequel, is going on tour with Wicked Lambs, and he wants her with him the entire time. Sienna agrees to work wardrobe and be his official girl.

Life on the road is different from anything Sienna has ever known. Not only does she have to deal with Lucas’s band members, but she’s also forced to be around Cilla, the lead singer of Wicked Lambs, who’s clearly in love with Lucas. Despite horny band mates and a persistent gorgeous rock goddess determined to sink her claws into Lucas, Sienna stays by his side.

Then the threats start.

Lucas’s ex-wife Sam isn’t happy that he’s moved on, and Sam begins harassing Sienna—everything from threatening emails to phone calls and even fake accounts on Your Toxic Sequel message boards slamming her and spreading vicious rumors. Sienna keeps this from Lucas since she knows how bad Sam is for his music.

It’s not until Sienna is attacked by a crazed YTS fan hired by Sam, and Sam starts to aim her verbal threats at Sienna’s grandmother, that Lucas finally reveals his secret. And it’s a big one... 

My Review: In this installment of the Devoured series by Emily Snow we finally get to learn the secret that Lucas has been hiding from Sienna and what Sam has over him. I have to admit that the secret is an interesting one. I was not expecting it to be what it was. However, I'm not sure how I felt about how it was resolved. The way that the plot about the secret ended was very sad and wasn't 100% satisfying for me. I think that the resolution was a little quick and that it could have been a bigger part of the overall plot.

I liked that Sienna goes on the road with Lucas because I think that this gives them a chance to become closer and enhance their relationship. Of course, because it is a rock band on tour there is going to be some drama. I liked how Sienna handled herself in some of these situations.

Sam blackmails Sienna for much of the novel and Sienna never really tried to stop it. She waits an extremely long time before she tells him and I think that much of the harassment could have been avoided if she told him sooner. I think that he would have attempted to do something to stop Sam, but I also think that all of this could have been avoided if Lucas would have just told Sienna what the secret was the many, many times that she asked.

I was happy to see the appearance of recurring characters because I like to see the rest of the bands and Lucas' sister. I would be interested in seeing some spin off books from these characters in the future.

Quick Opinion: Overall, I'm happy that the secret Lucas was keeping was finally revealed but I'm not sure how I liked the way everything was resolved. I think that after so much build up I was just expecting more. I give Consumed 4 stakes because I wasn't entirely thrilled.

I really like the Devoured Series and I was really happy with this continuation. Let me know if you have read this book or anything else by Emily Snow.
