Posted on

The first in an all-new sexy contemporary romance series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black.

Bodyguard and former military man Cutter Bryant has always done his duty–no matter what the personal cost. Now he’s taking one last high-octane, high-dollar 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.

Fame claimed Shealyn West suddenly and with a vengeance after starring in a steamy television drama, but it has come at the expense of her heart. Though she’s pretending to date a co-star for her image, a past mistake has come back to haunt her. With a blackmailer watching her every move and the threat of career-ending exposure looming, Shealyn hires Cutter to shore up her security, 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.

My Review


Devoted to Pleasure is the first book in the exciting new Devoted Series and follows the story of Cutter and Shealyn. Cutter is a former military man turned bodyguard who will do whatever it takes to get the job done. He has one last assignment before beginning a new role. The one thing he never saw coming was Shealyn. Shealyn had a quick rise to fame, but with fame, danger sometimes follows. When she starts getting blackmailed, she hires Cutter to keep her safe. The chemistry between Cutter and Shealyn is scorching and the lines between business and pleasure begin to blur. Will Cutter be able to win Shealyn’s heart and still keep her safe?? There’s only one way to find out.

Devoted to Pleasure was a quick and easy read for me. I loved the idea of this story and couldn’t wait to dive into it. I thought the characters were intriguing and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next with them. I loved the chemistry between Cutter and Shealyn. These to certainly steamed up the pages and left you begging for more.

I think this series is off to a terrific start. Devoted to Pleasure was well written and entertaining. It had just the right amount of drama, suspense and sexy good times. I thought this was a good read to spend my afternoon getting swept up in. Devoted to Pleasure is my first book by this author and definitely won’t be my last.
