New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the third book in the sexy, suspenseful Careless Whispers series. 

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers. But even though he has become her anchor–helping her recover from amnesia after finding her unconscious in an alley, and allowing her into his secret world–all is not what it seems. Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella’s past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn’t begin in that dark alley…it could easily end there.

Review: Behind Closed Doors – Lisa Renee Jones

bcd-ebook-coverBehind Closed Doors by Lisa Renee Jones
Series: standalone (loosely ties into the Inside Out and Careless Whispers series)
Genre: erotic romance, suspense
add-to-goodreads-button

From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones comes a brand new gripping and provocative novel that ties into her bestselling Careless Whispers and Inside Out series. You can enjoy this as a standalone, but fans of Careless Whispers and Inside Out will get an exciting glimpse of who Ella really is and some of the secrets she’s been hiding from everyone she knows. 

Desperate to pay for law school, Skye tries her hand at auction hunting with her friend Ella, only to find a poker chip and a note leading to an offsite locker. The next thing she knows, Jason “Red Bull” Wise—a famous, millionaire poker player—is at her door, accusing her of blackmail. Innocent, she swears he’s wrong. He rolls the dice and believes her, impulsively inviting her along to Las Vegas. And remarkably, cautious Skye takes a risk, finding herself seduced by this dangerously alluring man, on his private jet, and finally living life to the fullest. But there is more than passion waiting for Skye and Jason in Vegas when blackmail takes a deadly turn.

A note from the author: Please be aware that BEHIND CLOSED DOORS was once released as just 3 chapters on my website and Storage Treasures. I have since fully completed this novel into 21 chapters (plus an epilogue). Readers will get a FULL-LENGTH book and finally learn the rest of Skye and Jason’s story! The middle and end to this book have NEVER been published before so please take time to check it out!

Review

Heat: ★★★
Rating: ★★

I sensed this connection. I sensed that we both know a monster calmed by one of only two things: escape or denial.

As ever, Lisa Renee Jones delivers an excellent storyline with the perfect balance of intrigue, suspense and romance. Although I haven’t yet read the Inside Out series, I have been meaning to for a while and enjoyed the chance to get to know Ella’s character a little before indulging in that way.

“Another thing I don’t want. Your curiosity. I just gave you permission to fuck me, but be clear: I’m not another notch on your belt. You’re a notch on mine.”

What I really struggled with was the pacing. The first 75% was really quite slow, unfolding at a snail’s pace, and the final 25% was just too fast. This was all build-up and very little satisfaction, with a huge lack of development and a very frustrating way to end a storyline which I was very much enjoying. The events were easily guessed, and we never got to the bottom of Skye’s background and personal issues – there was no resolution, no proper reason, and it all tied up too easily and quickly for me. The sex scenes also seemed a little tame for Jones, almost rushed, and not quite as thorough as I was expecting.

It was as if, in some respects, this really was treated as an interlude to Jones’ various ongoing series, with not quite as much care going into the mystery and craft as usual.

“My only type until now has been the queen in a deck of cards, who lies down for me at my bidding and without questions. Any woman more complicated than that simply distracts from my real love.”

A fantastic storyline hampered by disappointing pacing.

REVIEW: Demand – Lisa Renee Jones

2Title: Demand
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Careless Whispers #2
Genre: romantic thriller/suspense
Rating: *****

Okay, this is one of the best series I have ever read. I’m obsessed and engrossed and I really, really cannot wait to see how this all turns out! The second instalment begins exactly where the first ended, questioning Kayden’s involvement with her before her amnesia.

This is fast-paced, highly suspenseful drama, with a slowly but deeply unfurling love story; every single character is immaculately created, the complexity thoroughly thought out. Kayden is already one of my favourite book boyfriends, and I am seriously falling for a fictional character right now. I need more, I need to read on and know all about Ella.

I really cannot recommend this series enough.

REVIEW: Denial – Lisa Renee Jones

25409790Title: Denial
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Series: Careless Whispers #1
Genre: romantic thriller
Rating: ****

This is an absolutely brilliant read, clearly thought out and planned in excruciating detail – it pays off. I couldn’t put it down, and found myself a little less interested in the relationship growing between Ella and Kayden and much more engrossed in the action and storyline.

Ella’s character development is intense, from waking up with no memories to beginning to remember some events towards the end – yet nothing seems forced, she becomes feistier and stronger and I really, really cannot wait to uncover her story and the extent of her involvement with Niccolo.

This book played in my head like a film – beautiful scenery, highly complex characters and relationships and the perfect amount of angst and action.

Blurb

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

Excerpt

Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I’d felt for him. And then his words: “We both want more. Until we don’t.” The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.

 

The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it’s not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It’s my gun that’s lying on the counter between us.

 

And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.

 

“What is that for?”

 

“You thought you needed it earlier,” he says. “I want you to have it now.”

 

My fingers curl on the tiled counter. “Do I need it?”

 

“That’s for you to decide.”

 

“That isn’t the answer I want.”

 

His jaw sets hard. “If you’re expecting an answer you’ll want, you’d better pick up that gun.”

 

We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. “I know what you’re doing.”

 

“What am I doing?”

 

“The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest.”

 

“Which is what?”

 

“Offering me the façade of control.”

 

“You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade.”

 

“I know you now,” I counter. “You don’t give up control, even when you say you are.”

 

He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. “There are two sides to this coin,” he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. “The me with you, and the me with everyone else.”

 

“We barely knew each other at the church.”

 

“I’d already decided you were mine. You just didn’t know it yet.”

About the Author:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT series, which is now in development for a television show to be produced by Suzanne Todd of Team Todd (Alice in Wonderland). Suzanne Todd on the INSIDE OUT series: Lisa has created a beautiful, complicated, and sensual world that is filled with intrigue and suspense. Sara’s character is strong, flawed, complex, and sexy – a modern girl we all can identify with. I’m thrilled to develop a television show that will tell Sara’s whole story – her life, her work, her friends, and her sexuality.

In addition to the success of Lisa’s INSIDE OUT series, she has published many successful titles. The TALL, DARK AND DEADLY series and THE SECRET LIFE OF AMY BENSEN series, both spent several months on a combination of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling lists. Lisa is presently working on a dark, edgy new series, Dirty Money, for St. Martin’s Press.
Prior to publishing Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by the Dallas Women’s Magazine. In 1998 Lisa was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.

Lisa loves to hear from her readers. You can reach her at http://www.lisareneejones.com and she is active on Twitter and Facebook daily.

Excerpts

EXCERPT REVEAL: Demand – Lisa Renee Jones

Picture1

Excerpt

“You are all kinds of tattooed hotness, Kayden Wilkens. Hawk.”

His lips curve. “Is that you talking or the wine?”

“It’s called liquid courage.”

“You’re adorably drunk.”

I stroke his cheek, which feels much better than mine. “But you’re here, and you are The Hawk and I know I’m safe.”

“You are safe with me, Ella.”

“I am, but you’re dangerous to everyone else.”

His expression sobers. “Is that what you think of me?”

“Don’t go getting serious on a drunk person. I didn’t mean that negatively—you’re everyone’s protector.” I grab his T-shirt. “I meant that the bad guys are in trouble when they piss you off. And I meant it like you’re a badass, thus the ‘you’re sexy’ comment. Wait. Did I say that or think that? I’m saying it now. You’re sexy.”

He flattens his hand at the small of my back. “Badass?”

“Badass.”

“Do you know how badly I want to be inside you right now? Right here?” His hands go to my sides, traveling to my breasts, his thumbs stroking my nipples to hard peaks.

I grab his hands as my cheeks flush. “Too bad I wore jeans. You’ll have to behave.”

“Will I?” he asks, flicking my nipple.

I grab his wrists, firming my voice. “Stop, because yes, you do. I am not getting undressed in public.”

He reaches down and fingers the easily undone laces that line the front of my jeans. “I’ll settle for you having an orgasm until we get home.”

I reach for his hand. “I can’t have an orgasm in public, either,” I say, but my body betrays me, my sex clenched and wet.

“That sounds like a challenge—and this is barely public.” He pulls several of my laces loose. “I told Niccolo I couldn’t command you to orgasm. I want to try.”

“You can,” I assure him. “You can pretty much just look at me and I’m wet.”

“Are you telling me you’re wet now?”

“Very—so take me home and do something about it.”

His hand goes to my jaw and he drags my gaze to his.

“I never thought I’d use the word home again—let alone have a woman I want to use it with. I love you, Ella.”

“I love you too—” He slips his fingers beneath the laces and suddenly they’re intimately pressed to my sex. “That was unfair!”

“You’re not wearing panties,” he observes, slipping a finger inside me.

“Kayden—”

“And you are very, very wet.” His head lowers, lips at my ear. “I would kill to feel you around me right now.”

I pant, and my sex clenches around his fingers. “You’re about to embarrass me.”

“No one can see us.”

“That’s not what I mean. I mean—” He thumbs my clit and presses another finger inside me. “I’m going to come really fast.” He kisses me, a deep slide of his tongue, and oh . . . oh . . .
