Now 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…
I waited for this book to come out for sooo long, was beyond ecstatic the day it came out only….
The book was too short and the conflict resolution was weak! I was looking forward to see what Sam held over Lucas and when it was revealed, I thought this is interesting and could not wait to see what will unravel next. Unfortunately the way it was resolved was too ‘easy’, unbelievable and so not in keeping with the character at all. The story was too rushed and lackluster.
It wasn’t all bad, there were things I enjoyed mainly Sinjin, I am so looking forward to his story, the banter between him and Sienna had me smiling every time they got together. Lucas was amazing, loved how he loved Red (Sienna) whom I thought seemed much stronger and more sure of herself in Consumed. I just would have loved more interaction between Lucas and Red, also them having more time with each other. I needed to feel more connection, whether me with the characters or between the characters themselves, this was sadly lacking.
This book just emphasizes the point that not all stories need to be told in series, some can be told in one long instalment.
