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...
In the first book, Devoured, Lucas has a huge secret that his ex-wife, Sam is blackmailing him about. It’s so huge that it ruins his relationship with Sienna. Almost.
I loved the first book. I loved Lucas. I loved Sienna. When they got together it was electrifying. When he broke her heart (again) I wanted to throat punch him for his stupidity. Seeing as he pushed Sienna away due to his past mistakes, I was anxious to see what would happen next. And then the freaking book ends with his 10 days music video.

Thankfully, this book starts off exactly where the first one left off. Sienna still owes Lucas two days and decides to give them to him. I mean, how could she not? He wrote a song for her! Yeah, that’s where you swoon ladies.
Sienna and Lucas pretty much re-ignite their relationship and we get to know the other characters better. Where Sinjin was a total tool in the first book, in this book he became one of my favorite characters. Too bad Cilla didn’t turn out to be anything special. I still hated her. And then there is Sam, of course, who is a walking nightmare. She actually goes low enough to start sending Sienna threats. She's still cray-cray, so nothing new there.
The sex scenes were just as good, if not better, than they were in the first book and I really enjoyed seeing how Sienna affected Lucas.
Unfortunately, I did feel that the plot could have been better. It seemed very similar to the first book in the fact that Lucas gets Sienna to come with him, they hook up, something bad happens, she leaves him, he begs her to come back, yada yada yada. I don't know, I just expected more. I also didn’t like how short this book was. If it was going to be this short, I feel like it should have just been included in the first book.
Now to Lucas’ secret, which was one of the big reasons everyone has made a big fuss over the release date. We all want to know what the heck was so bad for him to dismiss Sienna again. And it’s pretty big. However, there is a huge twist to his secret that I wasn’t expecting and, personally, I liked it. I LOVE surprises and this was a HUGE one. I don’t care if it’s a little unbelievable. When I read, I eventually want a happily ever after. And with the twist, I couldn’t be happier. I liked the ending, although I would have liked to see an epilogue.
Overall, if you’ve read the first book, I highly recommend giving this book a shot, if not only to find out what the big secret was. It was an easy read, had some dreamy parts and even some angsty parts. The biggest issue, for me, was how short it actually was.
