I read All Over You first and then Devoured. I think I would have felt key parts were missing or left unexplained in Devoured if not for the prequel. Thanks for the info about All Over You.
Lucas is AMAZING! He just poured his heart out to Sienna and we absolutely love it!
LOL the discussion about the cover model had me laughing! Of course I had to start following that pinterest page, too, haha! Maryse — thanks for the reading order and your thoughts on this book. Speaking of the book, I agree that All over You was very welcome because it explains a lot of things that were left unsaid in Devoured. Devoured was a good book, I really liked it even if I would have loved for it to be…longer, and more developped on some parts. I might be going crazy. I would say though, that I think if you read the prequel first it might take away from feeling what Sienna feels because you will know why Lucas is acting the way he is before she does, so that might take away some of the angsty feelings that I know we love and hate at the same time!
Loved both books. Read Devoured and loved it! I recommend reading it before All over You and am anxiously awaiting Consumed. I really enjoyed both All Over You and Devoured.
I am really looking forward to Consumed. Any idea when it may be released???? Not sure if this was mentioned but I believe that the cover model WAS in the soap opera As the world turns……. Was the cover guy used on devoured series the same guy used on tammara webber book Easy??
Crazy think is they are both named Lucas. Please see the link. A little hesitant on whether to buy these cause of the mixed reviews but I decided to check out your feels for the book and happy to say that I am going to buy them.

As Clementine she is sent on a dangerous mission to rescue a spy. Niven makes some memorable moonspun magic in her rich fiction debut. Velva Jean Learns to Drive takes us far into this soaring, emotional country, the place where our best music comes from.
Skip to main content. By Jennifer Niven.
Staff Reviews Lots of action and a plucky heroine make the Velva Jean series entertaining. Her personal mission: to find her brother, who is missing in action. A terrifically absorbing read. Besides creating a gutsy heroine, who, despite the repressive times, never becomes bitter, Niven's writing shines overall. Cheers to Niven, Velva Jean, and the two further books of her remarkable story to come in and This is a wonderful book—very hard to put down. Niven delivers another tale full of hope, heartbreak, and nostalgia in this sequel to Velva Jean Learns to Drive.
The explorations of the Nashville music industry and the WASP initiative are rich in evocative detail.
But soon after Pearl Harbor is attacked, Velva Jean begins singing a new song—one full of patriotism, courage, and feisty independence. The perfect read for any girl of any age who yearns to soar beyond her dreams. Jennifer Niven and her heroine Velva Jean have those in spades.
