Her sister’s wedding was hardly the place to find a hook up, but after one look at friend-of-the-groom and special operative Josiah Grant, small-town Texas beauty Magnolia West immediately fell in lust. After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she’s not a happily-ever-after kind of girl. But Josiah—and danger—change her plans.
Josiah isn’t looking for love…but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She’s got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie’s family, he can’t leave her unprotected—especially when he realizes he’s fallen hard for her.
As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real…but can they stay alive long enough to share it?
I absolutely love when I get sucked into a story and it doesn't let go until the very last word, and that is exactly what happened with this book.
This book had everything from two likable characters, a whole lot of suspense, some crazy AF people to keep things interesting, the I'm supposed to protect you not fall for you drama, to a whole bunch of sexy time in and out of the bed!
There is no question as to why Shayla Black is one of my absolute FAVORITE authors. When I start one of her books I have to be sure I have nothing planned otherwise I will definitely be cancelling because I don't want to put the book down once I have started it.
In Devoted to Love Shealyn and Cutter are getting married, we met them in the first book of the series DEVOTED TO PLEASURE, and everyone is there to celebrate their nuptials which means Cutters hot co-workers are there to party as well as protect. When Josiah locks eyes with Maggie he was instantly attracted to her but he soon learned that one taste wouldn't be enough.
As I mentioned before this story has a LOT going on and I really don't want to spoil anything so I am just going to say grab a copy for yourself, you wont be disappointed!
Raised an only child, Shayla occupied herself with lots of daydreaming, much to the chagrin of her teachers. In college, she found her love for reading and realized that she could have a career publishing the stories spinning in her imagination. Though she graduated with a degree in Marketing/Advertising and embarked on a stint in corporate America to pay the bills, her heart has always been with her characters. She’s thrilled that she’s been living her dream as a full-time author for the past eight years.
Shayla currently lives in North Texas with her wonderfully supportive husband, her daughter, and two spoiled tabbies. In her “free” time, she enjoys reality TV, reading, and listening to an eclectic blend of music.
