Title: Devoted to Pleasure
Author: Shayla Black
Series: Devoted Lovers #1, a standalone
Release Date: July 3, 2018

REVIEW: ★★★★★

Bodyguard and former military man Cutter Bryant has always done his duty--no matter the cost. Now he's taking one last high-octane assignment before settling down in a new role that means sacrificing his chance at love. But he never expects to share an irresistible chemistry with his beautiful new client. 


As the star of a steamy television drama, Shealyn West knows fame well, but it has come at the expense of her heart. With a blackmailer watching her every move and the threat of career-ending exposure looming, Shealyn hires Cutter to shore up her security and keep her safe, never imagining their attraction will be too powerful to contain. 

As Shealyn and Cutter navigate the scintillating line between business and pleasure, they unravel a web of secrets that threaten their relationship and their lives. When danger strikes, Cutter must decide whether to follow his heart for the first time, or risk losing Shealyn forever.
Devoted to Pleasure is the perfect kick to the new Devoted Lovers series. Cutter is a sexy alpha security man tasked with protecting Hollywood starlet Shealyn West. It's his last job before his life changes forever. But what he never expected was her. He never expected this woman to tempt him, to be a down-to-earth sweet and sexy soul that makes him want to ditch his misplaced honor and devotion. Yet, the same goes for Shealyn, she wasn't expecting this man, who makes her think about leaving her dream behind, her dream that she's finally achieved. But Cutter makes her realize that she's lost a bit of herself along the way to that dream, and Shealyn make Cutter realize he's about to risk losing himself if he returns to his hometown with the aforementioned misplaced honor and devotion.

These two find something they would much rather be devoted to... each other. In the midst of a suspenseful storyline, these two steam up the sheets and made me fall in love and root for them so hard. Cutter is an amazing character that is sexy personified, while Shealyn is sweet, and sassy. Together, their passion cannot be denied, and once they give in, there's no going back.

This book is a perfect weekend read. It sucked me in, and had me engrossed in not only the two main characters, but the characters that are to come in this series, and I CANNOT WAIT!! I highly recommend Devoted to Pleasure!

Happy Reading!
