Publisher's Summary

Bound by duty...

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.

Tempted by pleasure...

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.

Contains mature themes.

Disappointing

After listening to Wicked Lovers I was looking forward to Devoted Lovers. Got to say Cutter is the absolute worst bodyguard in life. I remember a quote about Jack Cole in the first Wicked Lovers: "He killed the man who would end your life without blinking" or close to this. To me, this set the bodyguard bar extremely high and Cole "The best". That said, with Cutter's penchant for second guessing and hesitation, it's good he's skillful in bed. The only saving grace is Christian Fox's narration and even he seemed to cringe. Hope the next book in this series is better.

A phone book narrated by the sexiest voice

When I say I would listen to Christian Fox read the phone book, I really mean it. This book was boring to the nth degree, but listened to it all because I can’t get enough of Christian Fox’s sexy voice.

Was on board until 2 hours before the end

I have read a few by this author and am always up for Christian Fox so I figured why not.
I am not a big fan of the 'OMG we've known each other a week but we're in love' deal - because well, it's just dumb.
Why there is need for authors to keep going that route is beyond me.

This is of course, what is what led to the even more annoying 'Oh we're in love but I am going to not trust the other person and tell the truth - or give the benefit of the doubt ' scenario.

I want to get lost in a 'mostly believable' story. Maybe that's just me...

Great Listen while working

This was a good story to listen to while at work. Could stay on track and be able to keep interested in the plot and was not expecting the ending.

A bit cheesy and predictable, the “dirty” talk attempts just didn’t work. Overall just an OK book

addicted to characters

I'm vested in the characters from the series but the same old young inexperienced women falling madly...blah blah blah is getting old. the story line had a nice "say what now" moment. the vivid scenes were juicy. change in demographics nice
