Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones

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 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.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This book has it all and the cliffhanger leaves you wanting more... NOW.

I knew this was a two-part series and even knowing that, I'm disappointed that I have to wait months until the second half of Nick and Faith's story.

Each of them are keeping secrets from other. While we know what motivates Nick, Faith's background with her ex has yet to be explored.

June 18, 2017 can't get here soon enough.

I loved this book, it started out with a bang and pulled me in and I didn't want to put it down. I had to know what happened next.

Faith Winter is dealing with loss, both of her parents are gone. Her father passed away two years ago and her mother recently. She doesn't feel guilty that she doesn't miss her mother, they didn't see eye to eye. But she misses her father, even though he didn't believe in her dream of being an artist. Faith loved to paint and she was good at it. But her father wanted her to take over the family winery after his death and Faith was feeling guilty because it wasn't what she wanted.

Nick "Tiger" Rogers is an attorney and he only wants one thing. That is to find the proof that Faith Winter is a killer. But when he sees her, his mind and body has other ideas. He wants to know if she did kill them and why? And he wants to own every part of her body.

Can Nick get Faith to reveal her secrets without destroying her? Will Faith believe Nick when she learns why he came after her? Can they save each other?

I love Lisa Renee Jones, she has a way of twisting a story and pulling you in to keep you on the edge of your seat until the end and I can't wait for more. I need to know what happens and who done it.

I was really glad when this new release reached the top of my review pile – after all, Ms. Jones is a master at her craft, and a suspense romance set in the heady worlds of art and wine? The only thing that made me nervous was the fact that it is one of two, so I had to expect that there would be suspense in the ending, let alone the story itself. And whilst that is true, it is just the right side of tantalising!

We get to see the story from both viewpoints, although I am sure there are secrets that both of them are hiding from us too – Faith in particular.

There is so much intensity in this book, that at times I had to put it down and remember to breathe. And knowing that I would be left in suspense, I was even keener to draw out the process – but desperate to know what on earth is going on. There are some huge clues that there is something odd still afoot – lights, doors, suggestions of double crosses – most intriguing. Add in the chemistry between these two and her attendance at what is, in fact, his club; oh, Ms. Jones has piled on the questions – now we all have to wait until mid-July for the answers! I am of course hoping that they get a happily ever after that neither of them even knew they wanted, but there are some hard sessions of honesty before that is even a remote possibility.

Get reading, this will warm you up and keep you guessing!
