[Sisterhood Review] DEVOTION (The Hunted series, Book #4) by Ivy Smoak @IvySmoak

by Ivy Smoak


Tick tock. One day before the wedding of her dreams, Penny is in a city that is no longer her home. Alone. Heartbroken. Lost. Could the past few years really mean so little to a man that became her world? To a man she'd do anything to protect? There is no future without him. There is no her without him.

With only 24 hours until the wedding, is there enough time to repair the damage? Tick tock.

And even if Penny and James do come back to each other, Isabella is still out there plotting. The world is still against them. Darkness still lurks in the shadows of James' past. A student and her professor were never meant to be forever. They thought it was an everlasting love, but it was doomed from the very start. Tick tock.

Temptation led to addiction, which exploded into an eruption of chaos. And when the pieces settled, only one thing became clear...devotion. One great love. A love worth fighting for. Because the only thing that lasts forever is love.

5 of 5 stars

WOW!! Just.... I,... WOW! Ivy Smoak has clearly outdone herself with this one! What a way to round out an amazing series with characters I have grown to know and love. She really knows how to write in her characters' minds and make you see and feel all the nitty gritty emotions and turmoil. This is one of those books/series where the hero and heroine truly are strongest when together. They complete and balance each other on a very vital level. There are times where they take turns being strong for each other. Some readers may not like a heroine that is not strong and fierce all the time. But I think there is strength in admitting how you feel, even if it is self-deprecating, and fighting for those you love regardless. I think strength comes about in different shapes and forms. These tow people, Penny and James, are vital to each other. Oh, how I'm going to miss them!

So, to describe Devotion, I'm going to have to be very careful with how I word this. Spoilers would be a major bummer here! This book has all kinds of raw emotions, relationship struggles, crazy in-law drama ( like, wow ), paranoia, a "who done it" plot, hot, steamy sexxxxx, amazing supporting characters, and one earth-off-its-axis moment. I about threw my kindle! It was a message-Ivy-at-2am moment!

I could go on and on. And quite frankly, I'll probably come back to this review later, when the hangover subsides and my heart settles, to revise and spruce up this review.

...but Penny and James, y'all. Penny and James just crush my heart and jolt it back to life all the time! Every book. They're so awesome. And gorgeous. And have beautiful hearts. I need more, Ivy. MORE! Maybe a POV book from James? Come on, know you want to!
