Devotion by Alexa Riley

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Genre: Smut
Rating:1 STAR


Aurora Adams has had everything in her life regimented. She’s been made to eat certain foods, wear certain clothes, and only do what her mother allows…all for the sake of her dancing career. Life is lonely and cold, but she doesn’t have a choice. When her mother decides to send her away for a year of training it’s just another blow to her already fragile heart.

Noah Hill has never had passion for much in his life. But one look at Aurora and his world ignites. From the moment he sees her on the stage, he knows she ahs to be his. When her mother stands in the way, he has no other choice.

Will Aurora finally have a chance to break free, or is she trading one cage for another? When temptation leads to devotion, maybe the truth isn’t so important.


Okay let’s get to this shall we?

I normally love Alexa Riley books. There have been some in the past I didn’t like but nothing and I repeat nothing of the AR books made me loathe as much as this one.

Granted I know this is a smut book but still, somethings are just a little to ridiculous even for smut.

Fair warning this is a rant review and I will be spoiling events happening in the book. Please advert your eyes now.

For those who continue on to read.


  1. The hero. I tend to love AR’s alpha males but Jesus this dude did not get the water works going at all. His “dirty” talk made me want to run to the shower and drown myself in bleach.
  2. The heroine. Could we have a less of a realistic girl. Imagine if you will, your mother has controlled your entire life. You have never had an interaction with the opposite sex ever. Your life is nothing but dance. Even the food intake has been monitored. When you are sent away to a “strict dancing” training, the “coach/instructor” tells you to eat whenever you want. Makes a move on you. Wouldn’t you freak out?
  3. A day well actually several hours after she loses her v-card, the heroine also does anal with the hero and takes it like a champ. Can we call BULLSHIT!!!!!!
  4. The hero. He just had a raper vibe to me. I just had a big problem with him.

This was a complete fail to me. Though I will still read AR books. This one I am staying far away from.
