Book Review – Provocative (White Lies Duet #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Sultry, steamy – PROVOCATIVE!!!



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.

Book two: Shameless will be out on July 11th!

Provocative was my first book by Lisa Renee Jones and I don’t think I could have chosen a better one.

It had everything I like – chemistry and an overload of sexual tension. A compelling and commanding hero and a strong and mysterious heroine.

I love a good guessing game and Lisa Renee Jones did a marvelous job of giving me some answers but not all, and so many things were still shrouded in mysteriousness until the very end – or not. It certainly kept me on the edge of my seat – which made this book even more thrilling.

The little glimpses I got made me hunger for more. More answers, and more Nick and Faith.

I thought Nick and Faith were a fantastic as couple. The pull between them felt genuine and palpable. Even so both had their own agenda and secrets that neither cared to share – they were both drawn to each other. A pull that neither could ignore.

The only drawback I could see was that Lisa Renee Jones’s writing style was very elaborately descriptive – almost too descriptive – which was something I had to get used to. There were paragraphs that I had to skip entirely because they described what the characters did in minute detail. But like I said, that’s something I got used to by the end of the book.

Book 1 kept me guessing – now I can’t wait to read the conclusion in book 2.
