3.5 stars!

TV-surfing sometimes leads me to either Storage Wars and Auction Hunters. It's so interesting to watch people bid over something without a clue what's inside the storage unit. Skye Montgomery finds herself in the same situation when her new friend, Ella, drags her to a storage auction in hopes of finding something that would sell well. Sex and blackmail aren't what she expects to see in the storage, but it's what faces her anyway.

Skye and Jason meet under some interesting yet unbelievable circumstances. The plot is involved and the air of mystery lends itself to entertainment. The transition from meeting to togetherness happens almost instantly. However, they do have decent chemistry and I'm definitely a fan of Jason's confidence and sexiness. I don't think there's enough time for them to experience much in the way of growth as the plot and pace move along rapidly. Some of the more exciting parts include Ella and who she ...more

A cunning, sexy, engaging, and suspenseful romance that had Lisa Renee Jones trademark of mystery sprinkled with touches of eroticism. In Lisa Renee Jones’ newest standalone romance, Behind Closed Doors, she beautifully weaved elements of grit, duplicity, suspense, and romance in such an intoxicating fashion that you cannot put this book down.

LRJ really knows how to create swoon-worthy heroes. This hero, Jason, was a player. A professional poker player who had a history of no-strings flings. But his game changed when he met the one. Skye. Now who doesn't love a womanizing hero who stops because he's found his one true love??? Yeah, I was a sucker for hottie Jason!

How do they meet? Jason's being blackmailed and he thinks that Skye is involved. There'

Desperate to pay for law school, Skye tries her hand at auction hunting with her friend Ella, only to find a poker chip and a note leading to an offsite locker. The next thing she knows, Jason “Red Bull” Wise—a famous, millionaire poker player—is at her door, accusing her of blackmail. Innocent, she swears he’s wrong. He rolls the dice and believes her, impulsively inviting her along to Las Vegas. And remarkably, cautious Skye takes a risk, finding herself seduced by this dangerou

A famous poker player being blackmailed and a woman who’s afraid of taking risks. What will she do when Trouble crosses her path? Or is it a man in trouble? A story of earning trust, betrayal and suspense. Another wonderful book from LRJ.

This one can be read as a stand-alone but it gives a little bit more insight in Ella so if you plan to read the ‘Carless Whispers’ series I would advise to read books 1 and 2 of that ser

Lisa Renee Jones is becoming one of my must read authors! I've read a small handful of her books now and they do not disappoint. She's really good about keeping you guessing until the end, which I love. It keeps me engaged and makes the story more intriguing. I've noticed she doesn't throw in other women/men drama, no cheating and HEA's. While this book has characters from other series, it's a standalone, so you won't get lost. I highly recommend!

When I requested it, I had no blurb and no idea what this book was about. I thought it was in Sara's univers as it was part of the series. While she appears in the book, the main subject is not about her.

PLEASE READ!!! I've been getting a lot of questions about my upcoming new release BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. And I thought I'd answer them for everyone:

1) Is this a new book?

YES! I did write the first three chapters 2-3 years ago, and released it on my website and Storage Treasures, but the book that you are (hopefully) pre-ordering is a COMPLETE 85,000 word novel, that has never been published before (outside of the first three c

4.5 Stars

Skye's life is mundane, she's doing all she can to make her dreams come true and to leave her past in the past. She doesn't take risks, she doesn't do relationships or men, and she certainly doesn't buy other people's stuff in a storage auction. Letting Ella coerce her into buying the storage room should only mean a little bit a debt, but instead it flips everything upside down, introducing her to Jason Wise and a whole lot of risk she never planned on taking.
Once again, Lisa Renee Jones gives us romantic suspense like no other. BEHIND CLOSED DOORS was a fast-paced, seductive, and mysterious thrill ride that had me jonesing for more.

Let’s get to the important part, because believe me, it can get a little confusing out there in social media. There is so many different ideas on what this book really entails, so let me break it down for you.

1.) BEHIND CLOSED DOORS can be read as a complete standalone romance. This book is not a re-issue of any kind. Thi

I'm not even sure how many books I have read by Lisa Renée Jones. She is a master storyteller in the romance genre and no matter what book I've picked up by her, each one has been a memorable read.

Behind Closed Doors offers us a unique twist on the Las Vegas type story. With particular care and time spent on developing characters that mesh together perfectly, you are easily transported right into the heat of the story.

Lisa Renee Jones never fails to stir up all my senses when I'm reading one of her books. She pulls out so many facets of her characters. She doesn't just tell the story, she tells other stories within the story so that even if you don't realize it now, you will later. While this story was very suspenseful, what I can't get over is Ella. I've been reading about her in other books, and I had no idea about some of the things revealed in Behind Closed Doors. I wish I

My Rating is 4 Stars!

**I was given and ARC from the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

"Behind Closed Doors" is an addition the the Careless Whisper Series. However this novel is a standalone with an HEA and you do not need to read the prior books in this series to enjoy it. I am actually proof of that because I have yet to read them. And I do stress yet. The heroine from the first two books and an upcomin

First off I want to say that Lisa Renee Jones is one of my absolute favorite authors out there. I read every thing she writes and each time I think that book is my favorite. Yes, this book is a standalone and can definitely be read even if you haven't read any of her books. In true Lisa Renee Jones fashion there is always a story within a story. One of the things I adore about her books is none of them are predictable. I was hooked from page one, fell in love with Skye and Jason from the very ge ...more

Another hot and sexy read by Lisa Renee Jones that will have you burning up your e-reader with how fast you turn the pages. Behind Closed Doors is a fast-paced, well-written outstanding read with a great plot-line that keeps you guessing right up to the end, and strong characters that come alive on the page. With a great mix of mystery, blackmail, suspense, intrigue, a chemistry that leaps off the page, and oh so hot sex, this book will leave you drooling for more.

When Skye gets roped into buying abandoned lockers with her friend, she had no idea what this would do to her normal life.
Now there´s a poker playing gorgeous man on her doorstep, thinking she´s a blackmailer, and a mystery in the locker that Skye has to see through.
When it takes her to Vegas with mr Trouble, it will all become dangerous, and Skye will have to make decisions about who to trust..
Contemporary romance, fluffy smut and suspense in a great combo.

Jason makes some yummy promises, the kind that leaves wetness in the panties, "then he grins and says, “‘Eff them’ poker— and then I’m going to eff you every which way you’ll let me, baby.” He releases me and starts walking."

What can a reader say after reading just one of Lisa's Renne books? That this woman is a hell of writer!!! Her ability to keep the readers hooked by her sensational stories and narrate each one of them with such versatile, intigue way, it's riveting.

Behind Closed Doors is book 1 in the Behind Closed Doors series, by Lisa Renee Jones . Wouldn’t you know it, yet another billionaire blackmail scheme.

Gambling is not in my favorite things to do, especially since I attended trade shows in Los Vegas for 22 years. The story between Jason and Skye is interesting with their vastly different backgrounds. Suspense, mystery, and lotsa steamy scenes amongst a significant amount of arguing which they were able to work out.

Skye listens to her friend Ella and buys a storage unit. Jason Wise has come into her life and brought a mystery with him. Skye wants to be in the legal profession but I don’t get that she’s got the drive of some of them. Which I think Jason uses to his advantage.

What I was impressed with is that the author knows how to create a real jerk. Believe me, you won’t have any trouble spotting him once he makes his appearance. I already have Las Vegas on my bucket list but this book solidified when I e
