"His lips were like sin, his tongue marking me for danger."
I was intrigued by the synopsis of Blind Devotion because it was so mysterious. And I'm just nosy like that. I want to know what, when, where, why and how. And when there's a sexy lawyer involved, even better.
Alina was a contradiction from the get-go. She seemed both submissive and feisty at the same time. I couldn't figure out why she was making choices that she obviously wasn't happy with. But one thing that was crystal clear and I had no problems understanding was the immediate chemistry between her and Max. From their first glance at each other sparks flew. While Alina was trying to smother them, I was fanning them, hoping for an explosion.
Max is sex in a suit. When he walks into a room, the women go on alert, hoping to catch his eye. But there's only one that has his attention. Too bad he can't have her.
Alina fights her feelings for Max. "My brain told me to push him away, but my heart told me to cling to him." She can't deny the connection she feels with Max, but that doesn't change the situation she finds herself in. That doesn't remove the obstacle that stands in their way. Max is a lawyer. He's used to getting what he wants. He's good with words and can persuade a jury to see things his way. Can he convince her? All's fair in love and war, right? So playing dirty is allowed if the result is that he wins his case. And let me tell you, his version of dirty is delicious!
