PULLED UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones
NOVEMBER 28, 2017
A new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…
He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She’s as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction…
Asher wasn’t always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire’s son, who rebelled against his father’s controlling hand, and ended up in New York City’s underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he’s now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.
Or so he likes to tell himself.
But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they’re working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

“You want more now, and yet you don’t want it enough to make it end. And I already don’t want it to end, Sierra.”
She leans into me, her head resting on my shoulder, emotion that isn’t pleasure radiating off of her and crashing into me. I cup her face and tilt her chin up, my thumb stroking her cheek. “What are you thinking?”
“Nothing. Everything. Can you kiss me again already?”
“Where do you want me to kiss you? Tell me.”
“Everywhere.” She pushes to her toes, and her lips find mine, looking for an escape, trying to drive her demons away.
I want to demand her answer, make her tell me where she wants my mouth, but I feel her desperation, her need to escape whatever is in her head. And so, I press my lips to hers, I kiss her mouth, drinking her in, and I don’t taste him this time. I taste her. I taste us. I taste need and hunger and passion. “I want you naked,” I say, my hands sliding inside her jeans and panties. “In every possible way, Sierra.”
“I’m pretty sure I’m already there, and it’s terrifying.” She flattens her hand on my chest. “If you turn into an asshole, I swear—”
“You can punish me,” I promise, “and I’m still willing to offer suggestions.”
“If you turn into an asshole after I trusted you,” she says. “I won’t need suggestions, Mr. Ex-Navy SEAL who won’t be able to hide from my wrath.”
Fuck, I’m crazy about this woman. “Good thing I’m not going to turn into an asshole. I want you naked,” I repeat, and this time, I make it happen. I lower myself to one knee and take her jeans and panties with me. My arm wraps her waist and I lift her, dragging her clothing away, and setting her back down. My hands settle on her hips then and I look up at her. She stares down at me, the simmering look in her eyes all about arousal, submission. And I want that from her and not because it’s some sex game, of which I could play and play well.
I press my lips to her belly and just that easily she trembles, and it only makes me want more. Everything is more with her. I drag my mouth lower and lower…
I am a huge lover of this Author’s tall dark and Deadly series; fell in love with it the moment I picked it up many years ago. Now with her Walker security series I am falling in love with it just the same. But the thing I love most about this series, we get the best of both, we get to see the continuation of the Walker brother’s stories with their wives and we get to meet their new hot and sexy co-workers.
Sierra is on the run from the man she calls “The Beast” but in order to get where she is eventually running to she must scrape up more money and finds herself bartending with none other than fellow bartender Asher, but little does she know at the first meeting who he really is and that the bartender job is just a front and cover for him. Asher is immediately taken with Sierra and the more he gets to know her the more he realizes there is more to her story and once he finds it out, he is determined to not only protect her but to make her his.
I really loved the dynamic the author built between these two. The moment Sierra and Asher met was just perfect. I loved how he mistook her for a dancer and I loved that she didn’t take his shit or his flirting ways. That first night these two got to know each other at the bar and afterwards just set the whole dynamic for their story for me. Asher was perfect, he was your typical Alpha male but his intentions were all well-meaning and had Sierra’s safety in mind. I loved how he was with her and how he gave her the space she needed when she needed it. He was hot and sexy but oh so sweet and caring, with a side of caveman at times.
I really enjoyed Sierra’s character and how strong she was. She didn’t play the damsel in distress card when she truly could with her story. I loved how she didn’t take anyone’s crap and gave it as good as she got it. Her past wasn’t pretty, and she truly was running from a monster, but she didn’t let that stop her from trying to help stop another monster.
Overall this was a really fabulous read that I thoroughly enjoyed. It had some great angst and some edge of your seat moments. But I must say it also had some really sweet and tender parts and so many great hot and sexy moments. It truly was a perfect mix of a little bit of everything. I first fell in love with this author’s writing the moment I picked up her first book and I just keep falling further in love with her stories and her characters and she never disappoints. These books can truly be read as standalone but I don’t recommend it as you are missing out on some really fabulous stories if you do and it only makes these ones more enjoyable knowing you have already gotten the Walker Brother’s stories.
