Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: April 18th
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.
Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A sexy, suspenseful mystery you’ll keep flipping the pages to solve. Once again, Lisa Renee Jones has drawn me into her addictive web of intrigue and romance.
With bill collectors breathing down her neck, Faith Winter is desperate to find a way to save the family business, Reid Winter Vineyards and Winery. After the death of her father, she gave up her art career in LA and came back to Sonoma to run the family winery her mother was driving into the ground. The winery was everything to Faith’s beloved father; something her father always saw as her future, though not one that she wanted for herself. After her mother’s sudden death without a will, Faith finds herself in legal limbo and in need of money to keep the winery from default.
After their first meeting at an event at the winery where Nick comes to rescue her from bill collectors out to make a scene, the fireworks between them light.
Nick Rogers, a prominent lawyer whose nickname Tiger is well deserved for his ruthlessness, has a reason for seeking out Faith. He believes his father was blackmailed and murdered, and that Faith’s mother was murdered as well. All roads seem to lead to Faith. Determined to find answers, he insinuates himself into her life. What he doesn’t count on is how much he wants her. Their chemistry is immediate and fast to burn. But with so many secrets between them, they will each have to decide if trusting the other is possible.
This author is the master of the hook. Just read that first chapter and you’ll totally understand. She draws you in, sets the intrigue, lays out the puzzle and dares you not to turn that next page. And it’s impossible not to. I flew through this book.
Nick and Faith are incendiary. Their relationship moves fast but in a believable way. Both are uncomfortable with relationships and watching them each navigate and rationalize being together brought out revelations about the characters that revealed more secrets I was desperate to find answers to.
If you are a fan of this author’s Inside Out series, there are character cameos from Chris and Sara, as well as a mention of Rebecca. This is 100% readable as a standalone; however, if you have plans on reading Inside Out, I would recommend reading that first. This series is a duet in serial style. So, it does have a sharp cliffy.
If you are looking for a smoking hot read with an unsolvable mystery, this is the book for you!
