Review:

Nothing is more exciting than a woman riding on a horse to rescue a cowboy in the snow. Yes, ladies, our heroine Rayne Randall teaches our hero Garrett Johnson, a sexy cowboy aka Mr. Lover from South Dakota, the first lesson in life. Never leave the house without checking the weather first. From that point alone, I loved the book.

As fate would have it, both of them are dealing with pain from their past with family. This story shows how Garrett helps Rayne fights her demons and understand that she is not alone in this world. I have to say, A.C. Wilson give her readers a roller coaster of emotions. Yes, I was crying.

The supporting cast was great too, we also get to see what is going on in Matt, Andie, and Nora’s lives.

Description:

Garrett Johnson is a sexy cowboy from South Dakota, who curbs any woman’s need for commitment. His relationships are all about the fun; sex, drinking, and companionship. If she wants more from him, the game is over and he moves on. It has been this way since he left his hometown of Hot Springs after high school graduation.

Garrett is looking for something, anything that might take away the monotonous feeling of traveling down the same dead end path. An argument over the future of his family’s ranch sends him out into the middle of a snowstorm only to be rescued by a dark-haired, golden eyed siren. A captivating woman who could change the game altogether!

Rayne Randall left South Dakota fifteen years earlier in anger and grief at the tragic loss of her mother. She has only now returned after the death of her estranged father. There is more pain and destruction in this place than any other. She has been cursed to live each day with the understanding that her father killed her mother.

Rayne wants nothing to do with her family’s ranch. There are no ties here worth remembering! So why did she have to meet a sinfully handsome cowboy who would inspire her to dig for the truth? Assuming the job as her foreman and her friend, Garrett Johnson just might be the blessing Rayne never thought would come.

*****Please read Being Me first*****

This picks up where Being Me ended. This novella is very fast paced. Here we learn about the real Mark Compton. Yes, Mark has a human side, not the ‘know-it-all’ Master and art gallery owner. He suffers and hides his weaknesses all to well. After discovering what happen to Rebecca; Mark goes to New York because his mother is ill. Mark is in a different mind set and meets Crystal, who is nothing like the women of his past. There is something about her he just cannot let go.

Great novella.

Review:

***Do Not Read this book, unless you have read If I Were You.***

This book is actually part of a collection of journal entries written by a woman named Rebecca. It reveals her emotions and thoughts and she struggles with her decision of entering into the BDSM lifestyle. It shows a compelling insight with her and her soon to be Master.
*****
I am really enjoying this installment; The contract: will she or won’t she? As we continue this journey, Rebecca and her Master are figuring each other out. Her choices are making her doubt her ability to maintain control, and this is distracting her and driving her crazy. I am still loving the steamy and detailed sex scenes and unparalleled attraction between this couple.
*****
The third installment of this series is a super fast read with Rebecca struggling with her role as submissive. It delves more into the background of her co-workers and Master. I can never get enough of their lovely sexy scenes.
*****
Part 4 of this series is an emotional roller coaster, and it picks up about a year after they have signed the first contract. Rebecca is starting to question if she can continue with this arrangement, and is looking for more. Readers will feel Rebecca’s struggle between her addiction to him, but also her need for more. She takes this time to spend on expressing herself with writing in her journals.

Review:

I’ve learned Ms. Jones books flow together nicely and you can pick up the books in order effortlessly. Finally it’s Chris’s turned, yes it’s his point of view. Sara and Chris are still in Paris. Chris finally revealed his secret to Sara. The more I learned about Chris’s true struggle I appreciated every minute of it. Sara grows stronger and I love her and commend her for all she has to go through. Another great, short read.

She doesn’t see it. She doesn’t understand what I’ve shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon…she will.

Review:

This was a sensual romantic suspense that covered a lot of emotional events. It continues with some complicated journeys by three separate women who seem to be mirroring each other’s experiences. This book gives us Chris and Sara as they live with many twists and turns as well as learning and dealing with their own demons. We are talking about some raw and strong emotions. I needed to hug them both. If you were left with questions from IF I WERE YOU and BEING ME, then you will be happy to know this book has most of the answers.

Ms. Jones, thank you for adding a beautiful strong woman who will not take any BS from anyone. Yes, read the book to know who I am talking about.

There is still haunting journal entries from Rebecca throughout the book and damn did I not feel her pain.

***This is not a standalone book. Please read If I Were You, because it picks up where the book 1 ends.***

This is a great book. If you are looking for an erotic suspense novel (aka HOT DRAMA!) then look no further. The intensity, passion, and love continues on this roller-coaster of a ride for readers by showing us how fiercely protective Chris is, along with his vulnerabilities. I truly enjoyed watching their relationship grow. This book really shows the readers the many different facets of all the characters.

Review:

Great book can’t wait to read the second one! When you are in a world of darkness how do you know who to trust? After a big betrayal Helen trusts no one and moves to the middle of nowhere so no one can hurt her again.  After a normal day 3 years later a doctor comes to her door and gives her the hope that she might give life a little try again. However this may lead to even more hurt and betrayal and that is where I have to stop… To tell you anything else will give lots away, this book is written so well that every page was such a page turner! I don’t want to spoil something for you. As I write this I have already purchased book two (Clarity 2) and have read it so I will have a review up soon. I have also gotten book 3 for the same reason!!!  Do yourself a favor and get this book you will not be let down.

Description:

Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods—where no one could ever hurt her again.

When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more—the joy she has denied herself for so long.

When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her.

Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Review:

This is a great book! When given a new start in a new town everything should work out for Piper, maybe she will have more of a normal life. Piper’s dark past should be behind her in this town. This books makes you rethink what you believe about right and wrong and what you might do to hold on to that belief. You will fall for the characters because the author has  strong lead characters and great support ones, and a great porch swing…  Piper will have to decide if strangers come before friends and if she can help her.

I didn’t want to put this book down, however the ending made it hard to wait for the second book. Hard to believe this was the first book in the series….

Book Description

Piper Anderson has been given a fresh start in the picturesque town of Edenville, North Carolina. But her plans of settling into a normal life are derailed when she witnesses a prominent judge in her community committing a violent assault. Running from her own past and fueled by a passion to make the judge answer for his crimes, Piper is forced to decide if she’ll play by the rules or achieve justice in her own way.

Complicating things further, Piper finds herself fighting a powerful attraction to rookie cop, Bobby Wright. Although she’s increasingly enamored with Bobby, his staunch belief in the justice system is in stark contrast to her own. She may not share his opinions about the effectiveness of the law, but she certainly can’t deny how safe she feels when she’s in his arms or how every kiss leaves her desperate for more.

For Piper, the idea of finally living an ordinary life with a man to love is tempting. However, fate keeps placing the judge, quite literally, in her path. Will she decide the only way to win is to be as wicked as the judge, but with righteous intentions? And more importantly, will Bobby choose to let her go, or follow her as she crosses the line and takes justice into her own hands?

Review:

I really enjoyed this wicked, sexy, sinful, intense, suspenseful, and passionately sensual, imaginative world surrounding the every day life in the art world.

As each page turned, Lisa Renee Jones provided clues to the mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat, just waiting for all the pieces to fall in place. It has many twists and turns right from the start.

The sex was hot, the passion was intense, and the quick innuendos and sarcasm was fluid throughout the book, which increased the depth of the story.

This is an easy read; I felt for the tormented characters while hearing their thoughts, feeling their emotions and experiencing their conflict. It didn’t hurt having a sexy hot, dark alpha guy, who is possessive, domineering and protective as he introduces the heroine to the world of BDSM. I feel it was done very well without being unnecessarily graphic.

Book Description:

How It All Started…
One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expired.

Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals–dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.

Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her.

The dark, passion it becomes…

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his
dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for
more.
