I just finished Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones and I’m still UTTERLY SPELLBOUND!!! My mind is SPINNING from the suspense. I’m in a DREAMY DAZE. I can’t think straight. I’m still STUCK in this story!!! This story has not released my soul that is still swimming in a sea of suspense. My heart is still furiously beating out of my chest, racing like that of an Olympic runner. My body is going through the motions, directed by my brain that is still under the spell of this story. My mind is not mine. Provocative rendered me MIND-BLOWN!!!

Provocative CLAIMED and CONSUMED every ounce of me from the very first page.Mind racing. Pulse pounding. Feels flowing. Eyes wide in anticipation. Heart beating out of my chest. I felt the current of Provocative flow through me. I was HIGH on this drug of a tale and could not get enough of this FIX.

I was ENTHRALLED and ON EDGE as Provocative pushed me to the edge, transporting me to another world where I was held in suspense, left in a stupor. This story SEDUCED ME…word by word…feel by feel…weaving me into its scintillating spell. Provocative leapt to life so vividly, as if I were watching a movie my head. This story with its secrets and smolder bled into me; I was bound to Provocative. Hook. Line. Sinker.

Nick ‘Tiger’ Jones is intense. With his long hair and dark blue eyes, this rich and arrogant man is gorgeous…ALL ALPHA. This man is on the hunt for a woman who may be connected to his past.

I didn’t want to even like this Tiger, but fell for Nick hard and fast. I LOVED THIS DARK HERO!!! This Tiger is tough on the outside but a little tender at the core.

Faith Winters is blonde, green-eyed, and a beautiful artist and winery owner. Her life has been based on lies and death has played a key role. Like Queen Elsa in Frozen, Faith is as bold as she is beautiful with strength in spades!

When Faith and Nick meet, there is a cloud of heat, palpable passion and a connection that feels familiar.

There wasn’t anything romantic or sweet about our connection. It was dark and jagged. The kind of attraction that’s unforgiving in its demands. The kind of attraction that’s all consuming.

The Tiger is on the hunt, a predator about to pounce on his prey.

“Am I a friend or an enemy?”

“I haven’t decided.”

Faith, this bold beauty, doesn’t trust anyone. Yet she lets Nick enter her impenetrable fortress, though she is still guarded.

“I want you stripped bare and not just exposed. Willingly exposed. The two are vastly different.”

“And what exactly do you expect to expose?”

I lower my head, my cheek near hers but not touching. “All of you.”

I SMOLDERED and SWOONED as Nick’s words of passion and possession POSSESSED ME!!!

Nick won’t stop until he claims the ice queen as his. Mind. Body. Soul.

“What’s your sin, Faith?”

“I’m pretty sure it’s you.”

Despite the shield of secrets between Faith and Nick, their bodies are open books, smitten with one another.

I lower my head and kiss her, licking into her mouth, the taste of anger and the betrayal I’d seen in her eyes on her lips, and it guts me. I am betraying her.

Faith and Nick’s chemistry is combustible, an explosion of emotions meets the blazing of bodies. The only problem is that one or both may get burned.

We’re damage attracting damage.

Two damaged souls attracted to the darkness that both breathe and bleed. Secrets linger like bubbles ready to burst. Can two broken hearts heal together as one?

Everyone needs a Tiger in their corner.

Explosive. Exhilarating. Emotionally-entwined. Evocative. Provocative is nothing like I expected; it’s SO MUCH MORE!!!Provocative is smoldering suspense at its best! No one writes sizzling suspense like Lisa Renee Jones-Harrison..NO ONE. Lisa Renee Jones flawlessly executed Provocative that ruled every piece of me. This breathless and brilliant book was EVERYTHING!!!

Provocative is CHARGED with LIFE — an EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION that detonates in a mind-bender of a book where you’re rendered breathless and melting for more! This is not just a story but an immersion into another world. A world that holds you powerless in its clutches, daring you to escape. Escaping this enthralling tale that possesses power over the reader isn’t easy. Trust me…I know.

Heart-stopping sexy meets mind-blowing suspense in a story that will BLOW YOU AWAY!!! A shot of adrenaline to the core, Provocative is incredibly INTENSE and INTOXICATING! Provocative is PURE PERFECTION!!! I’m swathed in sin and smolder, POSSESSED, as Provocative will forever hold its POWER over me. I NEED MORE NOW!!!

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.
