Lisa Renee Jones has done it again. Left us with a hell of a cliff hanger.....
Cannot wait for book 2 to come out - this is hotting up to be a another great series!!!!
I love LRJ's Tall, Dark & Deadly series and Beneath The Secrets is another hit!
Blake Walker is our hero who is a bit broken, a lot lost and hell bent on revenge.
We meet our heroine but, by the end of this first book, we still aren't entirely sure who she is or what her motives are - there's a lot more twist, turns and secrets wi

Wow! I really like Blake & Kara's story. We get to learn a little bit more about the mysterious Tiffany Snow or Kara. The attraction between her & Blake can't be denied however much they try to hide it. Lots of steamy scenes between the two!! I saw a softer, more caring side of Blake through his feelings for the girl who is far from what she seems. Ready for the next part!!

ONE DANGEROUS NIGHT is the prequel novella to Lisa Renee Jones BENEATH THE SECRETS from her Tall, Dark and Deadly series featuring the Walker Brothers. One Dangerous Night is the introduction to Blake’s story. I originally read this storyline as (Tall, Dark and Deadly 2 .5)

Two years after the murder of his fiancé (and fellow ATF agent), Blake Walker finds himself working for Walker Security- a family run business where his contacts, motivation and revenge t

Wonderful Romantic Suspense

This is romantic suspense at its best. We first met the hero, Blake Walker, in the previous books but with the Prelude included with Part 1 this can stand alone. Blake captured my heart with his tragic past and the heroine who is hiding things of her own is so intriguing. There are secrets that need to be exposed if they are to save each other which they fight against yet long for. The book description captured me, "Can these two broken people drawn together by their s

Blake is a man who is struggling with the death of his fiancee. But blake believes
he has found the way to get past her death. By killing her murderer Alvarez. He
has a plan and he is staying the course until Blake discovers that the woman
who drugged him in Colorado is after the same thing. Only Kara isn't just a
secretary she is an Ex FBI agent. Along the way they both discover the truth
and each other. Only killing Alvarez is easier then trying to keep their hands off
from each other.

Not impressed...This last installment is probably the best out of the series and that ain't saying much ladies...This series is a complete disappointment. The title sounded oh so interesting...the cover lured me in...the atrocity of the editing turned me off as it continued in each story. The mindless (damsels in distress) are idiots who can be shut up with a good "tupping" and then follow whatever line of B.S. their neanderthal (Mr. TD&D) feeds them. Utter nonsense! Why did I continue readi ...more

Loved it! I still wish we could have got the whole book at once on time but I'm too impatient to wait for summer for the book in it's entirety so I'm getting it in installments starting with this one which includes the prequel story that was released a couple of months or so ago. Of course the problem is it ends on a cliffhangar and I have to wait for the next installment to see what happens! Either way I'm loving Blake getting his turn centre-stage and I'm really loving his heroine, already she ...more

I am not writing a review on this book until I am able to read all four parts of this series. Each book so far has been very short and should have just been put into one book, so that I am not having to wait to find out what happens with Blake! Each book is about the size of a small novella. I have a feeling that by time I read all four parts I will love it. I just hate having to wait for the other parts to be released! You can read any of my other reviews at

Blake Walker is a man who is struggling with the death of his fiance and is seeking revenge onto the cartel that killed her but first he needs to get into the inside of the organization. Kara AkA Tiffany Snow is definitely hiding she FBI? Undercover? The passion between these two is incredible but they are both playing with fire and they both have trust issues for obvious reasons! On to part 2.....

I was intrigued by the title of this book to begin with as i had purchased Tall,Dark and Deadly series.. As I didn't need to Read the series 1st for this book, I must say I was Plesantly surprized by how quick I got into the book..
Blake and Kara have a chemistry, and yet a danger about them that makes pulls u in and doesnt let go..
I cannot wait to finish all the books to Ms Jones's Beneath the Secrets series...

Ms. Jones has done it again! I'm starting to think of her as the cliffhanger queen because she is so good at creating all this wonderful tension and suspense and then leaving you hanging! I've loved every book in this series and I can tell from part one, this one is not going to let me down. Cannot wait for part 2!!
Feb 16, 2013 Tina rated it really liked it
Super hot beginning. I must say I don't like the serial approach to releasing books and that is why I am borrowing and not buying. I will not put out money for a book that will later be released as a full book and will end up probably more than the full book if bought in chunks. I wish authors would not do this!!!! Even an author I auto buy I will not do this for!

I couldn't wait to read this book after the other books in the series. However, when I went to download it the release date had been delayed. I WAS NOT HAPPY! When it finally came out then it is released as only 1 section of the book!! It is such a tease. It is a great story but I am one of those readers who does not like to wait to read the rest of the story.

This is a very short book but its good. I wanted to know about Blake's story. But it still hasn't shed to much light on what happened to his finance. So hopefully in the next 3 books it will tell. I'm looking forward to them!!!!

I read the entire Beneath the Secrets box set. It is the story of Blake and Kara. I really did enjoy this Tall, Dark and Deadly series. The Walker brothers are GREAT! The Blake and Kara story had them coming together against a drug cartel - the mystery/suspense and romance is great.

I wrote to Ms Jones asking when Blakes story was coming out,and while I am waiting for her to reply I figure lets try these books.
:-) I found Blake! The man rates four books.

I will probably miss these brothers at the end of the fourth
Book. Hopefully she will write stories for their employees.

LRJ's is by far one of the best authors of exciting dramatic romance. That is a mouth full, but there is not other way for me to relay how good her books are. Grab this series and be prepared for the best read you will have read in a while.

I really enjoy stories of tortured souls finding love again. Blake was that and more, Kara was right behind him in her issues. Jones wrote a fantasic love story along with a mystery that keeps you guessing. Highly recommend this book.

3 stars for length only good writing, some typos.
so far romantic erotic mystery - we only know Blake's back story from previous books in the series ( his brothers) - and we know nothing of Kara's back story...
