    "the dreams I stopped believing in..." I've recently become a Shayla Black fan after reading Misadventures of a Backup Bride. So, I confess that though this book is a cross-over between both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers series, I haven't read either of those previously and read this as a standalone. I wasn't lost or confused, but I was intrigued to get to know some of the support characters better and catch up on the author's other series.

So, I confess that though this book is a cross-over between both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers series, I haven't read either of those previously and read this as a standalone. I wasn't lost or confused, but I was intrigued to get to know some of the support characters better and catch up on the author's other series. They sound delicious!Devoted to Wicked is a short read that packs a punch. Cage & Karis had an immediate chemistry that neither could deny. His history of one-night-stands and friends with benefits was not a glowing recommendation for a possibility of more. She knows all about that from her mother's endless search for 'Mr. Right'. But that doesn't stop her from wanting more...When she goes on a girls vacation to Cancun, she's not expecting to find love, nor is she expecting to be robbed. And she's most definitely not expecting Cage to be the one to show up and rescue her. She tried to tell herself she never wanted to see him again, but tell that to her heart. It still melts and beats out of her chest when she sees him. The rebellious organ seems to recognize him, in spite of all her attempts to forget him. She doesn't want to want him, but she does. Karis doesn't know it, but Cage volunteered for the job of delivering her passport photo to Cancun. He wants to see her again. He wants another chance. He wants to change her opinion of him. He wants to be more than a one-night-stand, but will she give him a chance?Let me tell you, I wouldn't be able to resist that #HotCop who takes a #SultrySiesta to a whole nother level of hotness. I'd be booking my ticket to Cancun in a nanosecond. Thank goodness for Shayla Black who provides this overworked woman with mental vacations with her sweet, sexy and suspenseful writing. I can leave without going anywhere. I'll be looking forward to the next installment in this new series. The line forms here...

Can Karis and Cage clear the air and admit their feelings before it's too late?I enjoyed this novella. It did have a bit of insta-love going on but I went with it because Shayla Black always delivers. I look forward to her new series. Bravo! 4 stars! ~Ratula***I love these quick and dirty Wicked Lovers stories! I've been waiting for Cage and Karis' story and Devoted to Wicked was the perfect blend of hot and sexy romance along with all that alpha growly male goodness we expect with a Shayla Black book. Cage and Karis have been circling each other for a while--neither one willing to admit there's something more between them until Cage arrives in Cancun to bring Karis home when she's stranded without a passport.I loved watching these two finally admit their feelings and work things out. They're ridiculously sexy together and their sparks were certainly fun to watch! ~ Missy, 4 stars

    Shayla Black takes us back into her “Wicked Lovers” series and this book is a cross-over between both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers series; in this novella, we get Karis’s story. She is Jolie Quinn’s sister and we met her in her sister’s book “Holding on Tighter.” Now we have her story with Cage who is her love interest.

Karis is stuck in Mexico and she is frightened after her passport is stolen so she calls home for some assistance and she is sent Cage…thing is, she has some history with Cage. Cage shows up and he tries to find out why she has been avoiding him since NYE. He knows they have this instant chemistry, this heat yet she is bound and determined to fight it but he refuses to let her. Now on top of it, there is something hinky going on with what happened to Karis- someone is harassing her and trying to keep her in Mexico and doing it in the most strange and scary way. But Cage isn’t about to let anything happen to Karis, not on his watch. Karis doesn’t know what to make of Cage all of a sudden wanting to be there for her and be there with her, yet something tells her he is serious but should she trust her heart, after he broke it last time? This is a fantastic novella in the Wicked Lovers series and I will this could have been extended to a full length book but I will take this novella, for it another hit for Shayla Black! My rating: 4.9 stars“I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

    When Karis is stranded in Mexico, she never expects Cage to show up to help her. In a series of misunderstandings, they had parted ways, but now that they are together again, can the air be cleared between them? Will they be able to give into their feelings for each other before it's too late? This was a quick and great read. I love the characters and the story. Shayla Black knows how to keep her readers interested and this was no exception!

The story doesn’t seem choppy and the author doesn’t leave anything out so that you’ll feel as if anything is missing. And it’s very sexy.If you need a read that you can finish in less than two hours than this would be a good choice. It’s one that you can read any time of year. But it would be perfect when you’re on vacation and either sitting poolside or staring out at the ocean – the best way to set the mood. If you’ve never read this author before, what a great way to get your feet wet. You just may find yourself checking out some of her other work. It did leave me wanting to do a little research to go back and see if they make an appearance somewhere else. Plus it left me wondering where they go from there.I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This was a great start to a memorable new series that will certainly be a hit for what's to come next. Shayla always provides epic love stories and of course she delivers a short sweet read that you'll devour in hours. Karis finds herself trapped in a resort in Cancun after her room as been ransacked. All her identification has been stolen leaving her stranded. Calling back home, she asks for help from her friend Cutter, but as he tells her he has sent the "Calvary" in, she becomes worried on who just might that be. Cage and Karis had an unforgettable New Years evening, but the next morning Karis finds him in another woman's arms. Now, he's in Cancun helping her. Where do her emotions lie? What happens when she learns that her delay at the resort is no freak accident. My only issue with this book was there was not an escalade of buildup with characters. Yes, we knew there was a moment they shared prior but how this book started I felt that it wasn't a strong background on development pertaining to characters. I had a hard time wrapping my head around and getting in the mind set. HOWEVER, Shayla is never far on her skills on plot and action. She entrances you remarkably and the world around you drifts away. I am eager to see where this new series of hers takes us. **ARC graciously provided by the Author in exchange for an honest review**

It was a fast paced sexy read.The story starts with Karis pretty much trapped in Mexico after having her passport stolen at the resort where she is staying. Panicked she calls her sister telling her what happened. The person who is sent to rescue her is none other than Cage, a one night stand she had on New Years' Eve. Cage shows up to assist in her moment of need, but also to find out why Karis had been avoiding him since their hot night of passion. Their chemistry for each other was off the charts, and he is determined to find out what happened, but to also protect her at all cost as Cage is suspicious there is something more than meets the eye with the theft. Karis is confused why Cage has shown up after ignoring her after New Years' Eve. She does not want to have her heart broken again by Cage. They both seem to have their wires crossed and we find out why as the story unfolds.This was a novella, but I was wishing I could read more. Another home run Shayla....

But this novella was SMOKING HOT, THRILLING AND FAST PACED EXCITEMENT! The passion is there from the moment Karis opens the door to her hotel room with Cage standing there. I can feel the heat coming off the pages with every close encounter between them. I loved the red hot seduction, the moan-inducing sex and the heart-pounding action. Miss Black gets better and better with each new story. And this novella is RIVETING!Devoted To Wicked gets a SMOKING HOT HOT HOT FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its breathtaking and a hell of a second chance romance!
