Provocative (White Lies Book One)
by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: April 18th Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

Pure, smart, hot provocation.
What an addictive premise. This powerful man, known as the Tiger by his enemies in court, pursues a woman he suspects is the culprit of his father and her mother's death. When they meet, the lawyer and the tormented artist with secrets and pains all over her soul, a dangerous game of trust, punishment and and lust ensues, and slowly but relentlessly erodes their barriers and opens up the way to feelings, to needs.
The author draws out every scene to its most exquisite stretch. It's impossible to stop at the end of a chapter, you just have to keep on reading to feed the growing hunger for more. The tension is so taut in every scene, with all those absorbing dialogues and mysterious, fascinating characters, that you have to force yourself to take a breath sometimes.
I feel really mesmerized and deeply connected to this writing style that plays with guarded emotions, secrets of the past and a mystery that could prove a woman, Faith, a murderess or a beautiful painter who's been betrayed too often.
And the crush is coming if she discovers the man she is breathtakingly opening her wounded soul to might be one of those who betray her. I think the perspective of the chapters and how often they change between Faith and Nick works amazingly well and it is so smart. Both Nick's undercover probing of her guilt or innocence, and how their emotions evolver are shown remarkably well in that fashion. The more he believes in her innocence, the more you fear he might be wrong. That dichotomy is so thrilling.
I loved the characters, she's smart, torn between her neglected art and saving the winery. He's arrogant, intelligent, vicious with his enemies, yet in tune with every emotional need of hers. Their interactions are both brilliant and utterly sensual. Steamy scenes are not plentiful, but really meaningful.
The investigation that he leads around her implication in a crime takes a vicious turn at the end, and we're left with so many doubts that I'm painfully impatient for the next novel in this duet.
