Falling Under by Lisa Renee Jones (Walker Security #3)

Falling Under: a standalone Walker Security novel by [Jones, Lisa Renee]5 Stars
I love Lisa Renee Jones. I think I have to say that every time I review one of her books, but she just writes what I love. Strong females. Alpha males. Danger. Push & Pull romance. The list goes on and things get added every time I read one of her books. Falling Under is a standalone within her Walker Security series and definitely my favorite one. I will be the first to admit though, that I started falling for Jacob during Pulled Under and he just solidified his place as my favorite while I read this book.

Jewel is such a strong character and I loved how she started out as “Detective Carpenter” but as her relationship with Jacob progressed she became more than just her detective persona. They were vulnerable with each other in ways they wouldn’t even think of being with their co-workers and it helped them to solidify their bond even while still trying to figure out the dynamics of their relationship.  They’ve both faced serious tragedy and with that they understand each other better than anyone.

If you love romantic suspense with strong females and stubborn men then you need to add Lisa Renee Jones to your list of authors. She’s definitely a talent within the genre.

FALLING UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones

JANUARY 23, 2018

 

ABOUT

A new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…

 

Ex-special forces, Jacob King, is a man who keeps to himself, having learned the hard way that letting people close to you, trusting them, might just get you killed. A lesson he learned when members of his Special Ops team turned dirty, while others, men he considered friends, died. He made them pay. He made them hurt. He put them in jail. And so he doesn’t trust anyone anymore. He keeps his women hot and fast, his friends few to none, and his clients through the elite Walker Security at a professional distance, but safe.

It works for him. Until it doesn’t.



His newest job should be simple and cut and dry. Jewel Carpenter, the daughter of the CEO of Carpenter Enterprises, is receiving death threats. He’s to protect her and find out who is issuing the treats.

Simple. Cut and Dry.

Until it’s not.

Until the chemistry between he and Jewel is all about love, hate, and sex. But even as he fights the attraction to Jewel and discovers there is more to her than meets the eye, the real threat comes not from the threats she’s receiving, but the connection she has to him. Because his past has come full circle, and those men he’s made pay for their sins now want him to pay. And what better way than the woman in his bed?

EXCERPT

“Just to be clear,” he says, his voice low and rough. “I’m breaking every rule I own with you. I don’t fuck women I’m protecting.”

“You could hand me over to someone else,” I suggest, “and it won’t matter.”

“Not a chance in hell,” he says, his hand sliding under my hair to cup my neck. “We’ll break the rules together.”

“I’m not sure I like how you do ‘together’.”

“I’ll make sure you do,” he promises, his lips slanting over mine, and this time he kisses me like he owns me, like he wants to control me, and like I really am his, like I belong to him, and in this very moment, I can honestly say

I am. I want him, and I can’t get enough of him.

And how can it ever be enough when he’s this damn impossibly hot, and he’s such a damn good kisser. The way he makes me want his mouth on every part of me and the way he makes me want my mouth on every part of him. And so, there it is. I’m his, but I’m going to make damn sure he’s mine, too. I kiss him back as passionately as he’s kissing me. I meet him stroke for stroke, arching into him, telling him I am here and present, and I’m not even close to afraid of him or of this. He doesn’t get to control me. He isn’t making me do this. I control me, and I choose him and this.

Arching into him, his shoulder holster and mine are in the way, and I want them gone. I want him naked. Just to be certain that he knows that’s where I want this to go, my hand presses between us and I stroke the hard line of his shaft. He groans low in his throat, a sexy rough sound that tells me he gets the point. This isn’t his show. It’s ours. It’s us together, or there is no show, with or without our clothes on.

His reaction is to tear his mouth from mine, his lips lingering there though, as if he wants to kiss me again, and just when I would kiss him again, he leans away just enough to shrug out of his jacket. I take one step backward, and do the same with my blazer. I reach down and pull off my boots and he does the same. Next, we disconnect our shoulder holsters, and the truth is, it’s the first time I’ve ever been with a man who is probably more armed than me. That feels significant when it perhaps is not. He’s not a cop. He’s not that kind of career complication. He’s a Green-fucking-Beret, and one hell of a hot one, for that matter.

He sets his weapon on the couch and snags my hand, walking me toward him and taking my holster and weapon as he does. “Just making sure you don’t end up shooting me before this is over,” he says, setting it with his before shackling my hip.

“I told you I’ll wait until after the orgasms.”

“Careful,” he says, a hint of a smile on his lips again. “I might hold that orgasm and you captive.”

“You can try,” I say, but my head isn’t in the game in this moment, and somehow my hand is on his face, right by the almost smile, that seems to have complicated what should be sex, an escape, a way to pull back the emotions that umbrella stirred in me. That smile reminds me that Mr. Robot is his wall, his way to cope with death, with whatever makes him protect Jesse Marks.

He captures my hand. “What are you thinking?”

“That you have on too many clothes,” I say, before I let this go someplace emotional, somewhere that two people like us never want to go.

My hands press under his shirt, but he doesn’t immediately give me what I want. He studies me for several beats and then kisses me hard and fast. Too fast, but I get over it when he pulls his shirt off. He cups my face and kisses me, his hand sliding up my shirt, his touch fire that has me helping him pull my shirt over my head. Letting him drag me to him where he now sits on the couch. I straddle him, my bra somehow gone by the time I’m there. But my hands press to his shoulders, and I hold him at bay. “I will still arrest you if I need to,” I promise. “This doesn’t change that.”

“You aren’t going to arrest me any more than you hate me.” He glances down at my chest, his gaze a hot caress as it rakes over my breasts, my nipples, before his eyes meet mine. “Because you know I’m protecting you.”

I ignore the ache between my thighs. Or I try. “From what? The slayer or the Jesse Marks damage patrol?”

His hand slides between my shoulder blades and he molds my chest to his. “Do you really want to talk about Jesse Marks right now? Because if you ask me questions, I’m going to ask you questions when I’d much rather be inside you, giving you as many reasons as I can not to arrest me. But you pick. Conversation or fucking.”

“Both,” I say, because it’s the truth. I want answers and I want the conversation my emotions are having in my head to shut up. “Fucking first.” I push away from him and stand up, unbuttoning my pants, sliding them down my hips, and he watches me with that unreadable, robot expression that is admittedly sexy as hell. I press my lips to his and that’s all it takes.

We are crazy, hot, kissing, his hands on my breasts, my nipples, my neck. I can’t touch him enough. I can’t feel him enough, can’t get close enough, and that’s new to me. I don’t need anyone the way I feel I need this man. I don’t want to need anyone this much, but it’s too late. At least, right here, right now, I do. He rolls us to our sides, facing one another, the wide cushion of the couch more than holding us and the next kiss isn’t fast and frenzied. It’s long, drugging, and somewhere in the midst of his tongue stroking my tongue, I end up on my back with the heavy weight of him on top of me…

Pulled Under by Lisa Renee Jones (Walker Security #2)

4 Stars

Asher is perfection and he drew me in from the very first chapter. I don’t think I had a single complaint about him the entire book. He’s hot, tattooed, alpha, ex-military… and the list goes on. Sierra is running from her past and she needs a break.  Asher is everything she needs but she doesn’t want to let him into her life because doing so will make him a target.

Sierra and Asher are good together. I loved the way he took control of her safety and allowed her to have a breather…. even if she didn’t feel like it was safe for him to be with her. He gave her a safety net of people she desperately needed and a place to belong that she could be herself in. She has to decide whether she can accept it or not.

All of that leads me to Jacob the hero in LRJ’s next Walker Security book, Falling Under. He is Sierra’s “security” while Asher is out of town and the epitome of the strong, silent type. I love him already and can’t wait for his book to be here.

Twisted Truths by Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers #3)

5 Stars

I love Rebecca Zanetti SO MUCH. I think pretty much every time I write a Zanetti review they start out that way, but its the truth. I love the cover for this one. The paperback, not the kindle.  I also love that these books easily remind you of the important stuff that has happened in previous books and you don’t have to try to remember what’s been going on. That being said, you do HAVE to read the earlier books to enjoy this. Yes, the romance is standalone, but the overall story arc is definitely best enjoyed in order.

Denver’s story has been teased throughout the Blood Brothers series, and it was exciting to finally get to see Denver and Noni together. Their story has been a long time coming and it was every bit as good as I expected. Denver is *by far* the least talkative brother, but he still had his moments that made me absolutely fall in love.

Lawson by Marie James (Cerberus MC 2.0 Book #1)

4.5 Stars

If you read Snatch, then you absolutely know why I couldn’t wait for Lawson. If you haven’t read Snatch yet, then you completely should (because it is THAT good) , but it isn’t necessary to read it prior to reading Lawson. 

I was reading a meh cowboy romance before starting this and was wondering if I was hitting a book slump because I kept starting and stopping different books. Then this showed up and I abandoned the cowboy romance and couldn’t put this down. Then I read the last sentence.

What?! The last sentence alone would have me dying for the next book, but THEN I read the first chapter excerpt of Hound, and it sounds like it is going to be another winner. I can’t wait!

Title: Lawson: Cerberus 2.0 #1

Series: Cerberus MC Spin Off (Second Generation)

Author: Marie James
Genre: MC/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 8, 2017
Blurb
My plan was as simple as they come… in theory. Show up at
the Cerberus clubhouse and give dear old Dad a piece of my mind. What I didn’t
expect was being welcomed by the open arms of a father who had no idea I
existed.
More importantly, I didn’t anticipate HER. Delilah Donovan
was a breath of fresh air. She would soon become my reason for wanting to
become a better man, my reason for getting out of bed with a smile on my
normally sneering face. But no matter how much I changed, she’d always be too
good for a man like me.
It was over before it could even begin.

Dirty Rich One Night Stand by Lisa Renee Jones

5 Stars

This book is HOT! I absolutely loved the banter between Cat and Reese, especially pretty much every scene with them at the coffee shop. I just love a smart, successful, confident man and Reese is 100% all of those things. Cat is pretty much perfect as well. She’s an Ivy League educated lawyer that turned her back on practicing law to do what she really loves, and she does it well.

I really enjoyed the storyline and the publishing deal angle was an interesting part of the plot that I haven’t seen used before. Dirty Rich One Night Stand is a great combination of romance, chemistry, and mystery. This couple did remind me of Shane and Emily (IDK if it was the hot lawyer thing or what) so if you love the Dirty Money books then you should love this one too.

Loving Storm by Carian Cole

4 Stars

Loving Storm was a great followup to Storm. It read like an extended epilogue (though the novella also includes an actual epilogue). Any problems that came up within the book were quickly squashed. Really this is just a lovely look at Storm & Evie’s life together. You definitely need to read Storm before diving into this one. I don’t think you will enjoy this one if you haven’t, but if you have read Storm and you loved these characters then you should definitely give this one a go.

Evie
I met him in a snow storm…
We spent forty-eight hours trapped in the back of his pickup truck.
We fought.
We touched.
We fell.
Hard.

Storm
She literally crashed into my life…
The last thing I wanted was a relationship. Especially with a quirky chick who drove me insane. But something about her got under my skin, and into my heart.
And I had to have her.
All of her.
Now.

Falling in love in the back of a truck, just the two of us, was easy.
Dealing with psycho fans, jealous exes, and demons from the past….not so easy.

Unloved by Katy Regnery

 5 Stars!

Unloved is without a doubt the best book that I have ever read by Katy Regnery. This book captured me from page one and the tears started pretty immediately as well. Being Katy Regnery I expected a HEA but I had no idea how she was going to accomplish it. It seemed a nearly impossible task so I just held on for the ride.

This book has so many absolutely heartbreaking scenes that it makes their love so much sweeter. Cassidy is perfect but believes he is dangerous to society. Brynn is trapped in her past and retreated from the world. They are both so isolated and while Cassidy believes his isolation is necessary, Brynn’s isolation is more an expression of how she grieves. She is still mourning the fiancee she lost in a tragic way 2 years ago. Cassidy and Brynn are broken in their own ways, but obviously perfect for each other.

The sins of the father. The burden of the son.

My name is Cassidy Porter…

My father, Paul Isaac Porter, was executed twenty years ago for the brutal murder of twelve innocent girls.

Though I was only eight-years-old at the time, I am aware – every day of my life – that I am his child, his only son.

To protect the world from the poison in my veins, I live a quiet life, off the grid, away from humanity.

I promised myself, and my mother, not to infect innocent lives with the darkness that swirls within me, waiting to make itself known.

It’s a promise I would have kept…if Brynn Cadogan hadn’t stumbled into my life.

Now I exist between heaven and hell: falling for a woman who wants to love me, while all along reminding myself that I must remain…

Unloved.
