Review – Fighting for Devlin (Lost Boys #1) by Jessica Lemmon

Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Katy Evans, Jessica Lemmon’s irresistible Lost Boys series kicks off with the story of a good girl who plays by the rules—and the bad boy who brings out her wild side.

Devlin Calvary makes his own luck. Orphaned as a young child, he was taken in by a crew of bookies and gamblers—and they became his family. They’re the reason Dev’s running a trendy bistro, living in a high rise, and enjoying the good life with a string of women who never ask for too much. Until, one night, he finds out how much it hurts to trust the wrong people.

Rena Lewis sticks to the straight and narrow, determined not to slip up again . . . like the terrible night of partying four years ago that ended in tragedy. A waitress at Oak & Sage, she knows that sleeping with her boss is not a smart move. But when Dev shows up on her doorstep, beat up and clearly shaken, Rena’s not about to turn him down . . . or kick him out of bed.

Dev reawakens something primal within her—a need to go wild. And Rena soon finds out that the heart she’d sealed away years ago still has the power to fight for love.

I’m addicted. Just like the bettors in this book, I’m completely addicted to this Lost Boys series. Yes. You heard me correctly, series, because although this was only the first installment, I know who’s next and I’m already trying to figure out how to get my hands on it NOW!

Rena Lewis has spent the last four years trying to be the “good girl” after a tragic accident has her carrying the burden of the label. That is until she starts a new job, where her boss is hands down the one thing she’s been trying NOT to become. With temptation too high, she finally lets herself “feel” again and the train ride of her life starts.

Devlin Calvary isn’t your typical young twenty-something. He’s been orphaned and left to run a business and a hobby that his Father was so kind in leaving him. The only issue is that he doesn’t start to question what he’s doing until he actually starts to “get to know” Rena. She throws him completely off his game and he ends up having to make a life changing decision.

This story flows, seamlessly. It actually pained me when I had to put it down to be a person in the real world. Were there twists and turns? Yes. Were there hot steamy scenes? Of yeah. There was even some light BDSM, which was just the perfect amount for a young couple.

Have I mentioned how much I’m REALLY looking forward to the next installment? There’s a nice little twist in this read that will have you dropping your jaw. I’ll admit that I didn’t even see it coming.
