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.

For the past while I have been reading more contemporary and sport romances as it’s the type of books I get most enjoyment from lately. I no longer got much enjoyment out of the sexy suspenseful erotic romances as they all seemed to be the same storyline over and over again and I found the sex scenes in them to be overdone. So when I was given the chance to read an ARC of Provocative by this author, I must say I was on the fence. I love this author’s writing so very much but didn’t know if I was in the mood to pick this type of read up. I am so very glad I took the dive into this one because once again this author did not disappoint.
Provocative is the first book in the White Lies Duet and I must say, what a phenomenal read this one was. Provocative is also a spinoff of the Inside out Series as we see a bit of Chris and Sara from that series in this story. I have not read that series and did not realize this fact until the very end and never felt that I was missing anything but must say I am not intrigued to go back and check that series out.
Faith’s dream was always to make it as an artist but all that changed when her father died and she was required to come back home and help run the family winery before her mother ran it into the ground. Now two years later she is struggling to still save the winery for her father’s sake and to keep it in the family. She is also now pretty much reserved to the fact that making it as an artist is not in her future. Things suddenly change for her when a mysterious and very sexy Nick Rogers happens to walk into her life and come to her rescue. But Faith is not the rescuing type. But knowing the chemistry between her and Nick is mutual and off the charts, she decides to act upon but with a hard limit, ONE NIGHT. Unknowing to her though, Nick coming into her life was not by chance, Nick had it planned and is out to prove something but what he proves might not be what he set out to do.
My first thought now that I have finished this first installment is… HOT HOT OMG FREAKING HOT. The author did such a fabulous job writing some extremely hot and very sexy scenes. Normally I just don’t get the enjoyment out of erotica books like I used to but I have to say this one was just WOW, that truly is all I can say. This one was off the charts hot and had me fanning myself to cool down and that doesn’t happen a lot.
Nick, OMG, what can I say about him that truly does him justice. He is truly your typical arrogant Alpha male but he’s hot and oh so cocky but his it truly works for him and only makes him sexier. But we also get to see the real Nick, Faith brings it out and he’s sweet and caring and oh so very protective, he truly is his nickname, Tiger.
Faith was such a strong independent woman and I loved that about her. She has had to give up what she dreamed of doing for the love her Dad and wanting to make him proud. But she has also found herself in a bad place with the winery and is determined to not go down without a fight to save the winery, something she has never loved. She could so play the damsel in distress and be woe is woe is me but she was anything but and I loved that about her.
These two together were perfect. Their banter, their overall interaction, their sexy times. It was all perfect and I truly loved the dynamic the author began to build between these two and then slowly developed it even further over the duration of the story. I loved when these two were together in a scene, I couldn’t turn the page fast enough as this book totally sucked me in and I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next between these two. Also I must say when these two got together in the bedroom and the many other places it happened, these two totally rocked it, it was so very sexy and for the first time in a long time, I found myself looking forward to more sexiness to happen between them.
I really enjoyed the story-line and suspense the author developed in the story-line. This booked sucked me in right from the start and I truly couldn’t put it down, inhaling this book in less that 24 hours. And I must say now that I am done, I am chomping at the bit to get more of Faith and Nick, cause these two you truly can’t get enough of them. I am happy though with the way this one ends as I am now left counting the days till July when Shameless is out but it’s not a typical OMG ending that will leave your jaw on the floor and I like that the author ended it that way.
Overall a phenomenal 5+sexy hot and suspenseful stars that I truly can’t say enough about. It was truly a great mix of Hot and off the charts sexy, a bit of fun and flirty and some great suspense and drama. Once again this author has sucked me into her creative world of her characters and left me with a book hangover and I can’t wait to do it all over again with Shameless, I need some more of that Tiger!
