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.
My Review of Provocative
I just finished this book and wow… I’m not sure who the villain is and who the hero is? I’m not sure if Nick and Faith are the good guys or the bad guys or a combination of both. What an incredible story line, one that I wish I could get to the bottom of and NOW! How far away is July?
I chose to read and review this book because the description intrigued me, having never read this author before I was hesitant. But now, I am wondering why (and kicking myself) I never read her work before this. She masterfully intertwined these characters together yet each has their own secrets that I am sure will be the end of their “us” as they call it. Their story is involved, their lives are full of lies and secrets BEFORE they meet. Yet after their meeting and involvement grows, the lies continue. And all it takes is one line, one word and your mind goes wondering what else is hidden behind the green curtain. I can’t even begin to imagine the ending to this story but I desperately want to find out. I am THAT intrigued by it.
Nick is a hard, relentless corporate attorney, nicknamed “Tiger” for all the reasons you think. He is well known for winning in the court room and he claims he exposes liars because he hates liars, (hello pot, this is the kettle calling) and gets to the truth. Well he needs to look in the mirror if that’s his claim. Although the story is so well written, you wonder WHO is telling lies or who is keeping secrets. You certainly learn to trust no one. What are the lies that Nick refers to? Nick keeps referring to lies and misconceptions but you wonder about this wedge he is creating between them. It will come to a head soon and be an ugly mess. Hopefully he can clean it up, but how will he and Faith come out in the end? If he thinks he cares for her then is this the beginning of the end?
Then there is Faith. I think she has more mystery surrounding her than Nick does. Brilliant character, strong at times, determined and eager, yet lacking in self confidence and desire when it comes to her dreams. Trying to please her deceased father and find the truth behind her mother’s actions before she died, Faith is torn between the desire to be an artist and dutiful daughter role to run the family business. At some point truths will come to the surface and I have a feeling Faith will be more guilty than I expect. There is a grey cloud over her head and too many loose strings around her in her life. If Nick ties them all up, the bow is going to be an ugly one and not because he’s a guy. He has enough money to have that bow dipped in gold if he wants. What I can’t figure out is if he TRULY cares for her or it’s all an act. I hate cliff hangers! Faith and Nick are mysterious together and even worse, their own baggage will sink the “us” they are trying to figure out if they don’t start unpacking it soon.
I’m in love with Lisa Renee Jones. I will defiantly read more of her work. I am still reeling from the ending. I need my own PI to go find the manuscript to the next book in the series.
