Book review: All Over You by Emily Snow

All Over You (Devoured 0.5) by Emily Snow
Contemporary romance*ebook, 57 pages
Published January 1st 2013 by Smashwords

Before Sienna was devoured, before Lucas was consumed, they were all over each other...

Lucas Wolfe is used to getting what he wants—from everyone but one person, that is—so when he meets the wardrobe assistant hired to work his band’s newest video, he’s got to have her. From the moment Sienna first obediently whispers “Yes, Mr. Wolfe”, he knows she’s perfect for him. 

Three days. 

And he’ll have her stripped down and bound to his bed.

Set two years before the events of DEVOURED, ALL OVER YOU is the story of Sienna and Lucas’s first encounter.

Rocker Lucas of the band Your Toxic Sequel is not exactly a nice guy, far from it. He's vain and bossy and gets what he wants. When he sees the new wardrobe girl, he falls in lust and pursues her. Poor Sienna. She's drawn to the bad boy musician (what woman wouldn't?) but doesn't turn into a fan girl. Lucas keeps up the pressure until Sienna gives in and accepts his dinner invitation. At his house. 

"I thought we were going out to dinner," she says.
"Private dinner."
"Oh," she squeaks.
"Don't worry, I'll be good."
Her shoulders shake with laughter as she looks down at her bag. "No you won't."
At least she knows what to expect from me."

Oh, but I'm not sure Sienna expects what happens afterwards. For a guy not accustomed to bringing women home, in fact she is the first, Lucas messes up. Big time. A phone call from Samantha and he takes it out on the woman he wants. Sometimes no matter how big and important we are, we're still human, and Lucas finds out some mistakes can't be rectified, especially when the wronged party up and disappears.

All Over You by Emily Snow is a fast-paced, sexy, addicting read for a novella. I liked the interaction between Lucas and Sienna. He was too gruff for me and some of his actions made me laugh. Sienna was my favorite character. Her country ways made her stand out and I'm glad she did what she did to Lucas.

Cover comment:
The original cover is on the right. Even using the same stock photo as the cover for a book I adore, Easy, the usage here is too simple and plain. The couple looks washed out. Where's the color? Sienna's red hair? Don't like the font. Then the cover was redone. BIG Improvement. Same photo. In color. Better title placement and font. Author name prominently displayed. This is a cover I like.
