4.5 Sultry Stars
This book was a refreshing mix of mystery, romance and steamy goodness. Tilly was a young girl struggling in her old small town for the sake of her brother. She carries a secret to something the scarred the town years before. Boone is the sexy billionaire, ex-SEAL who bears the brunt of the town's scar and he is back to expose the truth.
For whatever reason which I still am not clear on, Boone seeks out Tilly and due to sibling loyalty, she takes Boone up on an offer which puts her at odds with the town and takes her on a journey of sexual awakening.
This book was really very enjoyable, from the downright HOT interactions between Tilly and Boone, to the mystery of the past. Now those true to the BDSM culture may find discrepancies with Boone and his treatment of Tilly. As I am not, I enjoyed the storyline. Boone's group of friends will no doubt make for some good future storylines.
So with all the love why not a 5 star rating? Then ending, I just wanted more. An Epilogue would likely have satisfied my burning desire to know what becomes of Tilly and Boone. Despite this, I still really liked this one and highly recommend it.

Delilah Devlin has written a scorching hot erotic mystery and romance. Fast paced, well written and did I say hot, hot, hot!
I don’t normally cast characters in my head using real life folks. I let the author describe the character and an image pops into my brain and there is the character. This was not the case when reading this book. When Tilly Floret was described I saw Anna Paquin (Sookie from True Blood) this was unfortunate as I am not a fan however, the story soon took me away and I was able to enjoy it immensely. I am really thrilled that this is going to be a series and can’t wait for Serge’s book His Every Fantasy.

Her Only Desire by author Delilah Devlin and read by J.F. Harding is a romance novel with sizzle. Ex-Navy SEAL Boone Benoit is back in Bayou Vert, Louisiana. He’d left town fifteen years ago with suspicion of murder hanging over his head. Tilly Floret is working in a local diner as a waitress so that she can take care of her mentally handicapped brother. She applies for the position of Benoit’s assistant. When he offers her an insanely high salary, she accepts the position despite the advice of others who warn her to stay away from him. Benoit is determined to bring her into his world and soon begins tutoring her in the arts of submission. She has no intention of succumbing to his seduction, but quickly falls under his spell. He knows she is hiding something and he’s sure it has to do with her cousin’s murder.
This is the first book in author Delilah Devlin’s new series Sultry Summer Nights. The author could not have gotten off to a better start. While there are scenes that are very hot, they are tastefully done. The relationship between Tilly and Boone was predictable, but was also very entertaining. There is an intriguing mystery that will keep readers turning the pages. My only complaint with this tale is it needed a more conclusive ending. An epilogue would have made for a more satisfying ending. If you liked Fifty Shades of Grey you will love Her Only Desire. I eagerly await the next book in this series.

I would not recommend this book. If your really into BDSM then maybe, but while you may find the characters interesting and even sympathize with their sad pasts, there is no justification for glorifying some guy who objectifies women and treats them sexually like a piece of meat. Yes i know this culture exists out there but no matter how good the writer is, this is just written for shock value and money.
