Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: April 18th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
5 Hard Limit Crowns
I loved every single minute of Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones. In fact, it is my favorite book by her. It has secrets and mystery, seduction and steam, and a dominate hero and sassy heroine, which make it the epitome of what I love in a suspenseful romance.
This plot line is an absolute enigma, and, along with Nick, readers are trying to figure it all out as the story unfolds. There are so many players, so many secrets, and so many unknowns that it is hard to see how all of these pieces are going to fall together. Lisa Renee Jones, though, has laid the foundation beautifully, leaving me fully intrigued by this story and how it will be resolved in the second book, Shameless.
Part of what draws the reader into the story is the characters. Nick is this successful and dominate lawyer who has a vicious reputation in the courtroom. His name strikes fear into most, and yet, when readers see him interact with Faith, allowing them to see this softer and protective side to his character. He also is incredibly dominate, but in a way that allows control to remain with the woman he is with. He doesn’t demand control, he earns it and only takes it when it is given freely, which is exactly what would seduce and entice a woman. I was completely enthralled by his character and his personality throughout the entire book.
Faith, while incredibly developed, still holds a lot of mystery. There is many facets of her background that are mentioned, but not revealed, piquing my interest in her character and how these revelations will play out in the second book. Even with these mysteries, Lisa Renee Jones fully develops her character. Readers know what motivates her, what her desires are, and what she dreams of in the future. She has walls and is closed off, but these insecurities and issues are explained. Even those she has these insecurities, she is an incredibly strong heroine for her ability to fight to honor her father, to get her dream, and to open herself to the possibilities with Nick.
I loved this book from cover to cover. The mystery surrounding the Nick’s quest ensnared me from the beginning, the romance and seduction between Nick and Faith consumed me, and the writing by Lisa Renee Jones is spectacular, leaving me craving the conclusion of their story with Shameless.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.
