Devoted by Hilary Duff

Since Sage was kidnapped, Clea has no way of knowing if he is alive or dead. And even though she has only just discovered they were soulmates, she feels like a part of her is lost forever. What’s worse, she can’t even turn to her best friend Ben—because every time she looks at him, all she sees is his betrayal.

But waiting for something to happen is not an option, so Clea is ready for action. Suffering through dreams of seeing Sage with another woman, she makes an uneasy alliance with Sage’s enemies and sets out to be reunited with this life or the next.

My Thoughts:

Devoted was mostly fast paced and a lot darker than Elixir (the first book in the series). Though, easy to read I found myself a little bored at the beginning because there wasn’t too much dialogue. But, as soon as Ben and Clea got in that plane to find Sage everything moved a lot faster.

I enjoyed Ben’s “good guy to not so nice guy” change of attitude towards Clea. She kind of deserved it. Her “I don’t want you but I don’t want you with anyone else” way of thinking got annoying and made my blood boil with anger. I thought she was being self-absorbed and selfish. I don’t know if Duff was aiming for this kind of reactions from her readers, but if she did she nailed it.

To tell you the truth I don’t know how to feel about the ending. Is it brilliant or awful? It all depends on the next book. Hopefully Duff can wrap up this series nicely with all the characters living happily ever after or at least most of them.

What I think about the cover:

I love, love Elixir’s cover. I loved it so much that I bought the book just because of the cover. So I was expecting a cover from Devoted with the same WOW factor. Sadly it didn’t have it. To me the cover looks dull and sad. Totally the opposite from Elixir’s cover with its vibrant colors and beautiful flower.
