Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: April 18th Genre: Contemporary Romance

Provocative Final Border 4.07.17 PM

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.

Lisa Renee Jones is a favorite of mine, and stories like this one are the reason.

For me, it is the characters, and the fact that you get so involved in them that you forget there is something about them that may be an issue, a secret they are keeping...and, in this case, you know from the blurb that there is something going on, that he is there for her for a reason (there are no names in the blurb, so I am leaving them out of this review) but, he is drawn to her. And, she to him. And, as a reader, you are drawn to both of them. They are compelling, you want to know more about them, you want to know their stories, the ones they don't tell anyone.

And, there are always stories in books by Lisa Renee Jones, and that is the best thing about her work. You know you are going to get not just a couple of characters and a plot...but a full story with nuance that leaves you wanting more.

And, then there is a cliffhanger...and that leaves you wanting more too. I am going to need the next one, now, please.

I recommend this book.

Lisa Renee Jones is a newer author to me and when a friend mentioned this book was available on NetGalley I jumped at the chance to request it-and I'm glad that I did. As someone who normally doesn't enjoy a cliffhanger it helped going in to this book to remind myself that it was a duet-and that I should realize that there would be more to come. After finishing this book I can't wait to read the next.

I'll admit this took me a moment to get into-and when I say moment I mean a chapter-but once I was in, I was all in. This book was a sexy suspenseful book (in case you coudn't tell from the title) of Faith and Nick. Each of them have their secrets and it's fascinating to watch it play out.

I don't want to spoil anything with this review so I'm going to say this: the pacing of this book was great. The writing was very strong, the chemistry between the two main characters was definitely there for me. I was fully engrossed in this story after the first chapter and was not ready for the cliffhanger I knew was coming.

I liked Faith and Nick a lot. I enjoyed the way the author let us peer into each of their heads; their inner dialogue worked well for me. I'm on the edge of my seat to see how the author will resolve things in the next book between them.

I really enjoyed this story overall. If you're looking for a sexy, romantic suspense story I would recommend this book. If you haven't tried anything in the romantic suspense subgenre I would say this is a great book to start with. It does feature a cliffhanger-which shouldn't come as a surprise since it's the first in a duet-but I still think it needs to be mentioned.
