This book is everything that I don't like in M/F romance, heck, romance in general.

The long haired (yuck), giant of a man comes and saves the "strong" woman (who is described as strong but snivels and makes stupid choices and relies solely on the man) from her predicament. The female MC is brunette, so naturally she isn't as attractive as her blond BFF (??), and she is shy and sexually repressed. The two have insta-lust, "love" in a few days, they stop the bad guy, and then trot into the sunset.

OMG I loved the story it is a thrilling, fast-paced, suspense-filled ride in which Royce and Lauren try to find out who her stalker is with the help of the Royce's brothers Luke and Blake.

The romance was scorching too and Royce is a bossy alpha which I loved. With so many suspects, can Lauren trust anyone?

This is my first time reading Lisa Renee Jones and she has me hooked I am going straight on to Dangerous Secrets Luke and Julie's story.

Predictable
description/

Writing: There were moments that were really good, like the beginning, my goodness was I hooked! However, I found Lisa Renee Jones' writing style weird at times. Example-

Royce was narrating and speaking to his brother on the phone. In that same paragraph it was narrated that his brother was looking at his computer screen. If Royce is narrating and on the phone with his brother, how can he narrate that his brother was looking at the computer screen?

Characters: Royce and Lauren were o

2.5 ✭

This book has been sitting on my paperwhite forever. I think it was free when I downloaded it and I just never got around to reading it.

It was a quick read. Nothing offensive or triggerish. Alpha male who beta downs when necessary. Independent h who admits she likes his growly ways without losing herself. Instalust to love within a matter of days. The 'deception' was forgiven within the space of a car ride. The 'bad guy' was OTT, the accomplice even more so.

The details about the woman who

3.5 Stars...

The perfect "plug & play" / "just add water" romance book.

Sure, I've read this storyline before. Sure, it was predictable. Sure, it was generic. But, I mean all those descriptions in the best way possible. I'm not going to get stuck thinking about what this book "means" and trying to find a life-changing message. I'll walk away from reading this having been entertained and having enjoyed myself. That's enough...and it's what Lisa Renee Jones does so well...
