What a gritty, raw and powerful book to get swept up into. As my first Lisa Renee Jones book, I was pretty excited to dive into this one because I have heard nothing but amazing things about her work. Needless to say, I was not disappointed and this book left me begging for more. Between the emotional aspect, you also have this intrigue and passion all wrapped into an epic package that leaves you breathless.
What I really loved about this whole book is the depth of it. It has its raw passionate scenes but the storyline is so intertwined and deep that you get totally engrossed into the whole storyline. From Shane and the reason to why he is helping his family as he seems to be the only one with a law abiding mind, to Emily who has this secret, which I am DYING to know what it is and how it affects the whole spectrum of this tale. The chemistry that Shane and Emily share is spellbinding as well. They connect not only on a sexual level but also on an intellectual level as well. The banter the two share is amazing and keeps the story flowing. You will come to hate essentially all of Shane’s family, I swear, by the time the book is done. But you will fall in love with Shane’s secretary too! OH I love Jessica and how she is written. PS, she needs to hook up with Seth!
Overall, I really fell in love with this story because it kept me guessing and intrigued as to how the plot was going to turn out. This book is so much more than that sexual spark but also that suspense that Jones creates throughout. The way she wrote this book, had me totally engrossed and has a new fan for life. Counting the days till the next in the series comes out!
