This will DEMAND to be read + giveaway


Lisa Renee Jones seduced me with DENIAL (my opinion here), so I couldn't wait to read what happened next to Ella and Kayden. I had to wait, of course, but it was so worth it :o)


Ella and Kayden’s story continues inDemand by Lisa Renee Jones

Blurb
Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

MY OPINION 
I've been impatiently waiting for this second part to Ella's mystery. And I'm glad to say it's overwhelmingly satisfactory.

The action shoots off right where it left at the end of Denial. Thankfully, the author reminded me of the details I needed to refresh characters and circumstances before jumping into a new scene.

Tension between Ella and darkly powerful Kayden was crackling. Rapid-fire dialogues, risky moves and dangerous enemies circling about like sharks really marked a fantastic beginning.
Every page felt filled bursting with breathless intensity that arises from Ella's struggle. Doubts, questions, distrust, and the triggering fear that her mind might be hiding dark secrets that could not only endanger her life, but her relationship with Kayden.

I was hooked to the way Ella navigates the twisted roads of her amnesia. The mystery behind it was so gripping. Also, she's so smart and resilient when facing enemies or the intense, yet gritty relationship with the Hawk.

Reading this novel felt like immersing myself in water and not going bacfk to the surface for air as I was so consumed by the narrative. Mafia,connections, a chain of broken memories, a leap of faith beteween Kayden and Ella as they trust each other's feelings against uncertainty, darkness and murder.

This second part is intense with secrecy, suspense, powerful romance and strong, smart scenes. I couldn't hold a gasp when I reached the end. Ella has proven to be a remarkable woman, resilient, intelligent and interesting. 

I love The Underground and its leader, and I'm so glad that I got to unravel part of this trilogy's plot. Just one more step to get to its much coveted conclusion: Surrender!


 

Read an Excerpt

Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I’d felt for him. And then his words: “We both want more. Until we don’t.” The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.

The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it’s not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It’s my gun that’s lying on the counter between us.

And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.

“What is that for?”

“You thought you needed it earlier,” he says. “I want you to have it now.”

My fingers curl on the tiled counter. “Do I need it?”

“That’s for you to decide.”

“That isn’t the answer I want.”

His jaw sets hard. “If you’re expecting an answer you’ll want, you’d better pick up that gun.”

We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. “I know what you’re doing.”

“What am I doing?”

“The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest.”

“Which is what?”

“Offering me the façade of control.”

“You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade.”

 “I know you now,” I counter. “You don’t give up control, even when you say you are.”

He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. “There are two sides to this coin,” he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. “The me with you, and the me with everyone else.”

“We barely knew each other at the church.”

“I’d already decided you were mine. You just didn’t know it yet.”

 

Although the Careless Whispers series is a continuation of Lisa’s Inside Out series, the books from Inside Out do not have to be read first. However, Denial, Demand and Surrender, must be read in order.

 

 Book one, DENIAL, is available NOW!


Book three, SURRENDER, coming January 2017

B&N and Audible coming soon
