Description from the publisher:
Loving someone means you give them your heart, your soul and everything in between.

For 69 Bottles Drummer, Dex Harris, life has always been about taking what he wants from women and walking away, that is until Raine Montgomery came barreling into his life. A force to be reckoned with and a woman he couldn’t ignore. She’s showing him that there is more to women than a temporary cure to boredom.

With all their demons laid out on the table, the path to healing can begin. Dex quickly finds he’s replacing a drug addiction, with a Raine addiction, devouring her at every possible moment. Taking her to new heights and pushing her limits is what he’s determined to do.

With the help from a couple new friends, Dex and Raine quickly find a new dynamic to their relationship really does work for them, but is it what she wants? Can she surrender herself to him in every way?

When his past starts knocking on his door, will he be able to protect Raine from his transgression or will the sins of his past rip apart the one thing that has brought him the most joy?

She’s tamed him…now it’s time to show her what true love really means.

A Rock Band… A Tour Bus … One WILD Ride!

**Content Warning**

This story may also contain discussion of drugs, drug addiction, drinking, alcohol addiction and some violence – reader discretion is advised.

This is the fifth book in the 69 Bottles series.  They do need to be read in order.  Absolutely do not attempt to read this book without reading CLAIMING ADDISON, CRAVING TALON, REDEEMING KYLE, and TAMING DEX first!  Okay, technically, for this one you only need to read TAMING DEX, but you really don’t want to miss out on the threesome awesomeness that is Addison, Talon, and Kyle.  DEVOURING RAINE picks up where TAMING DEX left off.  You should probably also read ONE WEEK as well for the background story.  If you don’t read it before, I predict you’ll be scrambling for it afterwards anyway.

Dex proves that there is nothing more lovable than a redeemed assholian.  Paired up with friends Dacotah and Derrick (from Zoey Derrick’s ONE WEEK), Dex and Raine are exploring their relationship and making the decisions that will lead to their happily ever after… if they can put their pasts behind them.  I loved all of the relationships presented and the ins and outs of their interactions.  The lifestyle is beautifully and realistically represented.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  about the steam factor for this story – like the rest of this series – it is a read it one-handed kind of book.  Have the husband/boyfriend/boy toy or BOB on stand-by, because they are going to love this book, too, even without reading it!

I may have been heard to whine, “but I don’t want to ____” (fix dinner, eat, sleep, go to work …).  I wouldn’t miss a book from Zoey Derrick if the earth was on fire and the aliens were swarming! …. And Zoey-bear, we need to talk.

It is from Glendale, Arizona that Zoey Derrick, a mortgage underwriter by day and romance and erotica novelist by night, writes stories as hot as the desert sun itself. It is this passion that drips off of her work, bringing excitement to anyone who enjoys a good and sensual love story.

Not only does she aim to take her readers on an erotic dance that lasts the night, it allows her to empty her mind of stories we all wish were true.

Her stories are hopeful yet true to life, skillfully avoiding melodrama and the unrealistic, bringing her gripping Erotica only closer to the heart of those that dare dipping into it.

The intimacy of her fantasies that she shares with her readers is thrilling and encouraging, climactic yet full of suspense. She is a loving mistress, up for anything, of which any reader is doomed to return to again and again.
