Series: White Lies #1
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: 18 April 2017
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.

|A hot romantic suspense full secrets and lies in new duet White Lies,Provocative introduces the reader to hot new couple on the block, Nick and Faith.|
The moment Nick meets Faith his intended mission is swayed by his instant attraction to the blonde beauty. A dedicated and top attorney, Nick is the king at winning but he can see there may be more to the tangled web of mystery he at first thought he had solved about Faith. The digging he has so far uncovered involved Faith’s late mother and his deceased father. It is from this point that the story starts to evolve and the reader is sucked into this hot intense drama.
Faith is a struggling artist at the cusp of finding fame when she is forced to take up the reigns of her family winery after the death of her mother. It is at a charity event that she comes into contact with Nick and feels the explosive attraction she has for him but tries so hard to deny. The two become involved and their game is at first just sex and getting all this passion for each other out of their system but then hard limits become soft limits to then being so much more. Will the hidden depths they are both hiding become a barrier to the promise of what they could be?
This was an easy read to get hooked into from the first page. The reader is kept guessing at what the secrets are and what became of the missing millions. Trying to keep one step ahead and double guessing the outcome was out of the question as the author keeps the reader on their toes with the compelling tale of a family mysterious history and the heart pounding intensity between Nick and Faith was a game changer. There were plenty of hot passionate moments entwined between the suspense.
I loved Nick and his alpha ways but also because of the way he protected Faith and didn’t cross her boundaries. He was playing a gentle game of earning her trust when he sees she has always been her sole supporter especially since the death of her beloved father two years ago. Faith finds it hard to trust Nick but she starts to open up to the possibility that he is who he portrays and his intentions are the only very best for her.
I was a bit surprised by the ending (and yes it is a bit of a cliff hanger) as I thought more would be revealed before the end. However it was a gentle end so not too dramatic and teeth grinding for the reader. Not too long to wait for the gripping end either (which I am sure it is going to be) as the second book is due out soon. Overall an atmospheric sexy suspenseful read and a four and a half stars read for me.
