➦I am happy to report that this book did not take the path into the whole BDSM club scene direction. I didn't really want it to. This heroine is very far from being a submissive and I really really liked her. She's an artist whose career is about to take off.

➦I bet sometimes you wonder how I go about my creative process of picking these awesome albeit sometimes completely out of place gifs... And I cannot tell you because, just like the heroine of this book, I am allowed to have a secret or two.

➦Soanywaysmovingon... This was a bit slow in the middle but I still loved the suspense, although the revelation at the end wasn't of the "omg wtf I've never seen this coming" variety. What I loved the most was the relationship between these two characters and somehow they grew on me. So whatevers, I seal this in approval.

P.S. I have mentioned before that this hero is a lawyer practically swimming in billions of moneyz?

I'm pretty sure I have, though.

A seductive, addictive, suspenseful read !

The White Lies Duet is an emotional roller coaster that delivers a powerful punch to the heart. Faith and Nick’s electrifying and passionate story grabbed my attention from the very first scene, with just the right balance of suspense, intrigue, sizzling sex and mounting emotional attachment between the characters, not to mention an impressive insight into the characters’ psyche. The dialogue is smart, seductive, mesmerizing, well executed and flows effortlessly. 

Lisa Rene Jones is an amazing storyteller and her incredible talent for compelling characterization and original premises comes through on every page. I absolutely adored the characters! Hot, sexy, intense, arrogant, badass attorney Nick” Tiger” Rogers is one hell of a hero, and Faith Winter, the brave owner of the Reid Winter Winery, amazing artist and hunted heroine is his perfect match. Loved the way these two uncommitted individuals, are allowed to grow individually, as well as a couple and how they teach each other the true meaning of ever-lasting, unconditional love and how they were able to come back from their issues and deal with them in a healthy and mature way. I also loved revisiting old characters from the Inside Out series - Sarah and Chris Merit.

This was truly a delightful read. A superbly crafted story, laced with all the elements I enjoy in my romances and featuring two compelling, complex, multi-layered characters that undeniably belong together. Overall rating for this duet – 4.5 stars.

“You’re perfect, Faith.” “No Nick. I’m broken. But I’m pretty ready to be broken with you, if you think you want to be broken with me.”
“Not broken. Together. Whole. Us. We. You and me.

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existence, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even 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.

Book 2 starts where Book 1 ended.

SHAMELESS is full of action, suspense & mystery. It is really captivating.

The bond between the couple gets stronger. They have fights or problems but they get out of them even stronger.

It is clear that the lies and secrets will be their downfall. Nick doesn’t tell the truth to Faith for a long time and when she discovers it, she feels really betrayed.

The problems arise, they cause a short time separation (no cheating during separation) and the consolation comes in a beautiful way, making Faith trust Nick and believe in his feelings again.

I really loved this duet. It was emotional, hot and angsty. It was full of suspense and it was a page turner.

Both books are written by dual point of view.

I recommend the books to anyone who wouldn't be bothered by the lies or the sex club experience of the couple in their pasts.


Some quotes from Book 2:

“Then you need to confess your sins, Nick.” He goes completely, utterly still.
“What sins, Faith?”
“The ones you haven’t told me. The ones you don’t want to tell me. Trust me that much. Because it’s not about what you haven’t told me that feeds distrust. It’s about your unwillingness to tell me.”
He snags my hips and pulls me to him. “When I’m ready, remember?”
“Yes. Agreed. But I’m already exposed and on the line with you, more so than ever by moving to the city with you. So, when do you think you’ll be ready?”
“When I’ve made it impossible for you to live without me.”
“Because you think I’ll want to leave when you expose yourself?”
“Yes,” he says, solemnly. “I do. But you need to know that I’ll fight for you.”


“Faith.” She leans, back and I rest my hand on her face. “I can’t lose you.”
“Then you won’t,” she says. “Because if there is one thing I know about you, Nick Rogers, it’s that you don’t lose anything you really want.” She’s right. I don’t and I want her.


I cannot help but wonder—when two people become this vulnerable to each other, when we need each other to keep from shattering, does this mean together we are weaker, or stronger?


“I need you too much, Nick. I need you to know that’s scaring me because I’m afraid you’ll see it as something it’s not.”
“Then we’ll be scared together, because I need you, Faith. So fucking much it hurts. Don’t make me feel that alone because you’re afraid of getting hurt. Because I’m just as afraid.”
I pull back to look at him. “You’re afraid.”
“Yes. And I don’t do fear. I don’t wear it well, remember?”
“God, Nick. You are—”
He kisses me, a deep, drugging kiss before he pulls back, those deep dark blue eyes meeting mine. “I am what?”


“I’ve got you,” I promise. Our eyes lock, the mood darkening, the pull between us fiercely present. “I know, Nick. Just don’t let go, okay?”
“Sweetheart. I’m not going to let go. That’s a promise, but don’t forget you said that and how I replied.”


I kiss her again and she does that thing she does, which I swear I want to experience again and again for the rest of my fucking life. She sighs into the kiss, as if she can finally breathe, as if I’m the reason she breathes. She’s damn sure the reason I breathe…


“Stop. When you touch me I get more confused.”
“Confused,” I repeat. “That’s what my touch makes you feel?”
“I can’t think when you touch me, Nick.”
“And that’s a problem? Because I can promise you that if you can do a mathematical equation while a man is touching you, he’s the wrong man. I’m not the wrong man.”


She senses it. She knows it. She knows me in ways people who have known me for years do not.

I need to fix this. I’m damn good at fixing things. This can’t be the exception. I will make things right with Faith. I will make everything right in her world, including me.

We're back with Faith and Nick - right in that second where we left them.
And if you're a bookalzheimer-sufferer like me - Lisa explains what happens in the first book in a quick 2-page summary before the book starts! I loved that!

Now in the second book Nick is trying to find out why his dad believed Faith to be dangerous. And he is scared to keep on hiding why he went after her in the first place - to find out if she's a killer. Because once she knows, he'll probably lose her. He's pretty sure he's in love with her already - she can't be a bad person, but what did she do? What has she gotten herself into?
With the help of Faith, his lawyer buddy Abel and his PI Beck, they try to get to the bottom of everything....




I really enjoyed reading it.

We finally find out if and how Faith and her Tiger will get their happy end.
And it's a long way for them and the reader until they might or might not get there! ☺
Lots of mysterious and exciting and very erotic moments will keep us company on the way!
Great finale to the White Lies duet!

It was a bit too long here and there - a few less words wouldn't have been bad.
And the writing was also not really what we're used to from LRJ. But I understand that she was going through a family issue during the writing of it, so it's totally understandable that this wouldn't be her best work.
The whole mystery part of the book and the whole excitement that could've or rather should've been in this second and final book, came way too short. It was such a back and forth between do I tell her? Do I keep lying? Dude, you always know lying will not end happily for you!
The suspensy end was a bit too rushed.

Also...the cover? That is not really Faith? Why make such a weird cover? Faith is blonde and a pretty insecure person most of the time - not such a vampy lady!

But I still loved reading it! Especially because there was so much Chris and Sara in it. And because Nick and Faith were really great characters. There was just a lot missing and on the other hand too much redundant stuff in here for me.

Can't wait to see what Lisa will come up with next! Even though we still have 2 amazing books in the Dirty Money series to look forward to!!!!

SHAMELESS was a great finale in the Faith & Nick Love Story! Very exciting & erotic & mysterious ... Run to your nearest amazon for your own Nick - this one is MINE!!! And Chris too, of course!

I couldn’t wait to dig into the continuation of Tiger’s story. Have you met this man? He’s everything! He’s intelligent, quick-witted, funny, intense, intimidating, successful, rich, handsome, sexy as hell, and the list goes on. I’m a sucker for this man.

In the conclusion to the White Lies duet, Nick is trying to:
✼ find the link between his father and Faith’s mother,
✼ figure out why the winery is on anyone’s radar,
✼ distinguish between friend and foe,
✼ keep his secrets close to his chest until he knows Faith is safe, and
✼ keep Faith at his side despite all that he’s hiding.

“I’m in this with you until the end.” - Nick

Amidst all of that, he and Faith are getting closer and the love they have for one another is growing deeper. The tone of their relationship was different in this book but no less beautiful. Between their conversations, interactions, and times in bed, I found a new intimacy to what they shared and the author captured it eloquently.

“I need this woman. I need her like I need my next breath.” - Nick

“I want her to be right here, with me, willingly, emotionally exposed.” - Nick

Going into this, I really didn’t think I could adore Nick more than I already did. Here was this guy who went after a woman, seeking answers, maybe even seeking some justice for his father’s death. He couldn’t even stand his father so his goals spoke to just how honorable a man Nick was. He meets this woman, Faith, and soon after he’s left captivated and consumed by her. No way would his heart tie itself to a killer. Gosh, the depths this man was willing to go to in order to still find his answers while protecting his woman were immense. Honestly, this entire review could be a love letter to Nick because in my opinion, Faith was a bit character. I know she played a huge role in this story, but Nick stole the spotlight. Kudos to LRJ for giving me another alpha male heartthrob to love!

The ending of Nick "Tiger" Rogers and Faith Winter's fairytale. When I started the book, the author wrote a synopsis of what happened in Provocative. That was such a nice touch catching up the reader with past events leading to the beginning of the start of this story!!

I loved Nick and Faith and I loved the passion they shared for one another. A fierce and protective lawyer and a creative up and coming artist. Their relationship was intense, sexy, and passionate. But there were still lies and secrets that had yet to be brought to life. So as a couple.....Trust and Lies.....All or Nothing.....Being In or Out.....was always on the periphery.

The mystery the reader was chasing finally came to life and was exposed. But during the journey, the relationship between Nick and Faith grew but was constantly being tested. What started out with ulterior motives turned into something real. But those motives were never revealed along the way and they eventually came back to wreak havoc with Nick and Faith. Can Nick and Faith survive? Can Faith really trust Nick? Can Nick make Faith believe his love is real?

I enjoyed this story. The author writes very methodically and plots out the story with the upmost of details. I loved that the author brought the story full circle. This duet is for lovers of passion with a touch of mystery.

What I loved most about this book was the chemistry between the two main characters. At times it bordered on being a little too much, but I actually didn't mind that.


What I wasn't too crazy about was much more than that, unfortunately.

1) Grammar: Overall, it was so-so. For the most part I was able to just let it go, but then there were sentences like this:

"Money doesn't matter," Faith.. A place we love does." He strokes my hair. "Okay?"


2) The Cover: Didn't match the description given for Faith, who's described more than once as being blonde, not a brunette. Catfishing, anyone?


3) Rebecca! Rebecca! Rebecca! I'll be honest and say I haven't read most of the author's previous books. With that being said, please don't assume that all your readers have. I get that it's fun to revisit previous characters, but maybe this could be done sparingly instead of making a previous character practically a legit one in the current novel.

It was a lot of: "Oh, this painting? It was created by... Rebecca. Yes, a truly tragic tale for another day, Rebecca's. Sigh, this gets me very melancholy -- let's relax with some coffee at the café, a place called Rebecca's. Oh, did you know that this gallery was the idea of Rebecca's, a very good friend of ours? Yes, Rebecca believed in living in the now because you might not have a tomorrow. I truly miss Rebecca...." I'm paraphrasing, but you get the gist.


4) Faith's Reactions: I understand that Nick's been both lying and withholding information from her, but when she inevitably starts finding things out, she reacts as if he's kicked her puppy, slept with all her female relatives, and then pushed an old lady onto oncoming traffic. To her, it's not as if he's been treating her like a queen this entire time, has been falling in love with her, and should arguably be allowed the benefit of the doubt. Gee, he didn't tell you who his parents were? Bah! Kick him to the curb and move as far away as you can, girlfriend!


5) The Ending: The buildup was meant to span two books, so therefore I expected a nice, juicy climax/ending to justify the tension. What you get instead is literally about two or three sentences... and that's it. Yes, the climax occurred and was over and done with in less than a paragraph.


Conclusion: By the end of the second book, I was torn. On one hand, I genuinely liked and enjoyed the main characters. I rooted for them, I wanted them to have their happy ending. On the other hand, however, I don't think they got the conclusion to their story that they deserved. Honestly, I was a little confused as to the villain(s), it was so quickly explained away.

Book Review For: 'Shameless' By Lisa Renee Jones 'Shameless' By Lisa Renee Jones is Book Two in the "White Lies Duet" series. This book continues the story of Nick "Tiger" Rogers and Faith Winter. The first book "Provocative" began their story so I think to fully enjoy this book you should read that one first. But, Ms Jones writing allows for you to catch up to their story if you choose not to read the first book. Nick had never met Faith before until he choose to attend the Reid Winter Winery open house, with the mind set to get all the information on her he could. Nick was under the mindset that Faith ha been involved with some tragic events that had happened. But when meeting her he slowly started to find that wasn't the case. Now this book opens us up to what the fallout is when lies and truth come out. Ms. Jones is one of my go to authors when I need a great hot, alpha romance story.

This book was so good. I hate that it took me longer to read but life Happens and with 2 boys sometimes it takes longer than I'd like to get lost in a book.
This was part two of the white lies duet. Provocative and then Shameless
I love Nick and Faith. I had a feeling all the lies and deceit would catch up with him.
There was definitely suspense, action, love, romance, anger, betrayal, hurt , all throughout this book. It was captivating and I enjoyed reading it.

The conclusion to the White Lies Duet was riveting and intriguing. Nick was sweet, romantic, dominant and supportive. Faith found her true inner-self and trusted Nick to guide her in the right direction.

Nick and Faith both have issues with their parents. Nick has come to terms with his … Faith is still having issues. She can’t face the truth about either of them, she can’t get the doubts out of her head. She has come to trust Nick to be there for her but still has concerns. She can still see a little bit of the uneasiness in his eyes, even when he tells her that he loves her. But, can she trust her Uncle Bill? There was a reason why there was the fall-out between the brothers. She knows she must confront the truth, confront him and deal with the wounds that he always opens.

Nick is totally committed to Faith, her art and her want to keep the Winery. There is one missing piece to his puzzle and then he will be able to tell her everything. He asks for her trust, he asks for her love and he knows that it’s not fair. She knows that there is something that he is keeping from her but knows that he will reveal it in time. The truth comes out just as everything is falling into place for him. He finally has what he needs to convince her of his love … but … now, he doesn’t have her.

If you followed the Inside Out Series, you will be happy to see a lot of Chris and Sarah Merit and the Allure Gallery. They do play a prominent role with Faith and Nick. So does the art world. I was a little dissatisfied with the Macom storyline. I would have loved to have seen more of a conflict. But, I loved how Faith handled the situation. I hated that she didn’t confront Nick with what she learned but loved the way Nick kept his promise and didn’t let her go.

Lisa Renee Jones definitely has a way of weaving a story and keeping her readers invested in it. Normally, I would be totally blown-away with the twists and turns she usually puts into her stories. I looked forward to the showdown with Macom and was a little saddened that there wasn’t more behind that. And, I wasn’t surprised by who was behind the problems at the winery. I wasn’t disappointed in the story at all but felt that there was something missing. I would really love to find out Beck’s story and Abel definitely needs a story … he was totally amusing and added just the right touch of humor to a very serious and fascinating story.

I really liked the first book in this duet, Provocative. It was differrent and involving.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same about Shameless. This one almost bored me, it took me a while to read it and I couldn't get into the story. I feel like there was much more sex than an actual story.

Was it entertaining? Yes. Was it hot? Yes! But a book should be more than that for me. I usually like Lisa Renee Jones' books, although I see a recurring theme in her books: too much sex and drama and little action in the actual story. It's almost like nothing really happens until the book is almost ending.

I liked the characters when I first started the duet, but I was left a lot more frustrated by them in this book, specially by the heroine.

Books like this one are why I enjoy Lisa Renee Jones. This was so great, with great characters and scenes that were long enough that by the end of the book, you really felt that you know the characters.

And, that matters as this is a really character driven story, and knowing the relationships, the ties and the connections matters a lot.

This is also the second book in a duet, so any review is difficult as it gets really close to accidentally giving away a spoiler, so I am going to keep this short.

I enjoyed the writing, and the book overall. I did think the pacing at the end was a lot faster than at the beginning of the title, but that didn't really impact my enjoyment of the story.

I recommend this title.

Shameless (White Lies Duet #2) by Lisa Renee Jones
4 stars!!

“I’ll be the killer. You be the artist. And maybe you’ll tame the beast along the way. But I wouldn’t count on it.”

I have been eagerly anticipating Shameless, after all, who wouldn’t be after the ending of Provocative. This duet has been all about the action from the very start and in true Lisa Renee Jones fashion she starts as she means to go on…action…suspense…intrigue…action…suspense…intrigue. This was a rollercoaster of a ride not only with the sizzling chemistry between Nick and Faith, but also with the undercurrent of suspense, was it murder and also, what happens when secrets are finally revealed? From first to last page, it just keeps coming and even after the end, I’m still thinking about them and that is always a good thing.

“Murder brought me here. Faith kept me here.”

Nick and Faith were a couple who fell quick and who fell hard. Their relationship based on not only their scorching hot physical attraction to one and other or their explosive chemistry between the sheets but their inherent belief that they can trust one and other. Nick and Faith both have their secrets, both feel the need to unload, but the time is never right. The trouble being though, when trust is such an important bond between them, what happens when its broken? Protection is one thing, but lies through omission are still lies.

“But hours later as I lay in bed, holding Faith close, I am not reveling in the mountain we’ve climbed today. I’m too busy looking for a way to battle the sea of sharks that are my lies.”

Lisa Renee Jones paced this book perfectly, it was fast paced which totally went with the vibe of romantic suspense. Little clues and red herrings were there if you read between the lines, but the truth was never revealed until the end. So many what if’s, so many different plots running through my head and yet I was still sideswiped. The villain of this story was who I thought during this book but did they work alone?

“Betrayal doesn’t come from your enemies.”

This book was a journey for both Nick and Faith, both emotionally and physically. Their beginning was not expected, their journey fraught with obstacles, but it is this that makes them stronger. Of course, you have the angst, that was to be expected, but I really did feel the connection between these two despite their rapid development into a relationship. Sometimes you just know, your heart knows and these two just felt right from the very beginning. Nick was always an individual, he was the lawyer, “The Tiger,” but in this book, he becomes Nick and Faith, an “us,” and for me that was the biggest journey of all.

“I can be naked and fuck a million women and they wouldn’t have anything but my cock, Faith. But you Faith, are the one who is one hell of a drug.”

I loved this book, it was exactly what I expected and more, it more than delivered, and my only criticism is that I felt that the ending was rushed, at least it read that way. But, none the less, all the I’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed, I got my answers and they got theirs. Sometimes it is worth that leap of faith.

“Sweetheart, you have pieces of me no one was supposed to ever have, and the many ways you could shatter them should have me running for the hills. But all I want to do is kiss you again. Hold you. Watch you paint.”

REVIEW: 4.5 stars-- SHAMELESS is the second installment in Lisa Renee Jones’s contemporary, adult, erotic, romantic suspense WHITE LIES Duet focusing on billionaire attorney Nick Rogers, and winery owner/artist Faith Winter. SHAMELESS should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately upon the events of book one PROVOCATIVE.

NOTE: There is a slight cross-over between Lisa's WHITE LIES series and her INSIDE OUT SERIES including several appearances by Sara and Chris Merit, Rebecca's lost journals, and the connection to our story line hero.

SOME BACKGROUND: Nick Rogers search for the truth brings together both the past and the present. Nick and Faith were strangers, never having met one another before the Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard open house, but are connected to one another through secrets, lies and a past shrouded in betrayal, mystery, and possible scandal.

Told from dual first person points of view (Nick and Faith) SHAMELESS continues to follow the building relationship between billionaire attorney Nick ‘Tiger’ Rogers, and artist/winery owner Faith Winter. Nick Rogers had hoped to prove that Faith Winter was responsible for a series of tragic events that unfolded months before but meeting Faith and digging deeper into her life, and the lives of both of their parents found Nick falling in love with a woman whose heart he will break with his own secrets and lies. As Nick and Faith struggle to save her family owned Reid Winter Winery, Nick continues to search for the truth behind the corruption, debt and deaths connected to both of their families. What ensues is Faith’s journey to becoming a world-renowned artist. and the building romance between Faith and Nick that will stumble when the truth is revealed.

Nick Rogers is a man determined to protect the woman with whom he is falling in love from both of their pasts. Family secrets and lies, betrayal and the search for the truth are the catalysts that set into motion Nick and Faith’s future-a future that may not have a chance when the truth is revealed. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense without the use of sexually graphic, over the top language and text.

All of the previous story line characters plays secondary and supporting roles including several cameo appearances by Sara and Chris Merit, Faith’s ex-boyfriend Macom Maloy, her agent Josh, winery manager Kasey, Faith’s uncle Bill Winter and CEO of Pier 111, a social media platform; Nick’s PA Rita, and his best friend and fellow attorney Abel Baldwin.

SHAMELESS is a story of mystery and suspense; betrayal and heartbreak; power and greed; secrets, lies and exposing the truth but I did have an issue with the quick resolution of the story line conflict-the predictable revelation of the person/people responsible felt almost anti-climactic after the long awaited build up. The premise is engaging and intriguing; the characters are colorful, dynamic and complex-Nick’s secrets will destroy the building love between him and the woman he loves. The romance is edgy, provocative and passionate.

SHAMELESS and the White Lies Duet is a captivating tale of two people brought together by scandal, and the search for the truth. Lisa Renee Jones WHITE LIES DUET is a fascinating and moving series that will leave you wanting more because there is so much more to tell.

I was worried about reading Shameless having heard people complain there wasn't enough about the winery but was pleasantly surprised to find I didn't agree.

Shameless picks up with Nick wondering about Faith's part in the possible murders of his father and mother due to a cryptic note he found in his father's effects while Faith and he were happily playing house. The book quickly moves past that little tidbit and like two people who are intertwined and obsessed with each other, albeit both damaged and concealing parts of themselves, they quickly end up even further tied together. Nick kind of becomes more of the white knight hero in this book and Faith becomes his object of pursuit in every way possible. She's his drug and I swear if he could do lines and snort her, he'd be drugged out of his gourd. Faith is equally crazy about Nick but feels in her gut that he's keeping something major from her which of course he is. Nick has let the lies go from the first chapter of the first book and he's terrified that revealing them now will take away Faith and his possibility of a happily ever after.

In the meantime, he pursues the case of the winery, what the possible motive for double murders would have been in regards to it, who would have been enticed to do so and for what. As he halps Faith with winning her inheritance and owning the winery he also gains valuable information from her in his bid to solve things. Faith in the meantime has started to embrace her art and is starting to find success. With that comes her scummy ex now successful artist boyfriend in LA who makes a sleazy appearance and a throw down to take her from Nick.

I had read reviews where people felt the end was too rushed with the whodunit and reveal but it didn't feel rushed to me. Anything more and it probably would have felt like it had gone on too long. It is the major focus for two books, having it conclude neatly at the end didn't bother me. And the author had a nice touch for those who read the novels when first published by putting a recap of the first book in the beginning of the second.

Nick and Faith were red hot together. The constant push and pull made it not a question of whether they would be together but just when and if the shit would hit the fan and how they would resolve it. Nothing felt too contrived and like other second books I kind of enjoyed this one more than the first because the characters felt like people I already knew and was invested in. Thus the book read much faster and was easier to disappear in. Kind of addictive. Still had a 40's film noir kind of vibe to it even if more contemporary than the first. Totally enjoyed it and finished it with a feeling of satisfaction. So.... 5 Stars for entertaining the shit out of me!

This was filled with relationship angst that had me on the edge most of the book. While I’m not a fan of secrets between the hero and heroine, the fact that it was obvious how this couple felt about each other helped to ease the way for me.

Nick and Faith were FIRE together! Their chemistry was off the charts and the suspense that ran throughout the story made this an intense read on every level. Their inner thoughts did take precedence at times when I was ready for things to move on.

I loved the inclusion of the Inside Out characters. Seeing my favorites was a real treat, especially when their presence added to the storyline rather than taking it over. Overall, a great read and an excellent addition to the Inside Out world.

the continuation of book 1 is no less powerful and addictive in the parts that won me over in Provocative, Nick "Tiger" Rogers is the ultimate alpha BUT not in that overabundant way, no, this guy is the ultimately driven SOB in business and the passionate, open and direct man in his private life and he knows what/who he wants and has no quell whatsoever in the way of how to get it/her...
Yeah, I loved Nick, there's no question about it...

I loved Faith Winters, as well, she's somewhat an elusive introspective artist with some insecurities she's working on shaking off...Nick is the person that simply barges into her sphere and he's present, sometimes overwhelming BUT in overall he's good for her, he makes her stronger, he makes her tick in so many different ways, he makes her alive...

BUT there are some secrets that linger around them threatening to ruin everything they build between them, most essentially, trust.

Well, I have to say, the mysterious part of the story finally ended being a mystery, as we find out who was to blame for all the bad going on in and around Faith's life...and even though, there was a hint about it, it was slowly resolved with poise and mindful expectation, BUT somehow the final conclusion was rushed, it all happened kind of in a blur...or at least, it looked like that to me...

Anyhow, really fantastic duet by Lisa Renee Jones!

3,5 stars!

“You want real, sweetheart. I’ll show you real.” I scoop her up into my arms and I start walking, heading into the bedroom. And as tempting as the idea is to strip her naked and show her my many different versions of real, I have another destination in mind. A place where I show her just how naked she’s made me.”

As much as I enjoyed Provocative, Shameless was a little bit long and boring. And I must confess that there were times when I just wanted to delete the book from my kindle and move on to the next one, but there was something about Nick that made me stick to the end to see where his obsession with Faith would lead him.

I let her feel my unbridled need for her, and between the two of us, we are kissing, touching, all but crawling under each other’s skin. That word I never meant to say— love—is now between us, and it’s like freedom, a new kind of drug that stirs hunger in me for this woman, so fucking intense it damn near hurts.

In the conclusion of Nick & Faith’s story Faith was able to be true to herself and her needs as an artist and individual…....And Nick even with all his dominant ways is so supportive of her pursuing her art and he is so swoon worthy in this book.

Faith always had a good relationship with her father but not her mother and after their deaths certain things have been brought to her attention about their lives and it is making her confused and causing many other questions & concerns. She has an uncle that has been estranged for years but he is pressing for a relationship with her but she just doesn’t trust him nor does Nick.

Faith has opened up completely to Nick but she still feels that he is withholding something that is keeping them at a bit of a distance. Just as everything seems to be coming together The truth comes out.

There are some supporting characters in this book, Sarah & Chris Merit and I liked them so much I researched other books by LRJ and found there are books on their story and I’m going to read those soon.

The conclusion to Nick and Faiths story was enjoyable to read. It certainly drew me in and kept me engaged throughout. Although it did take me a few chapters to really get into it, and if I'm honest I did find the last few chapters a little rushed. Especially with the revelations surrounding the Winery, the deaths of Faiths mum and Nicks dad and Nicks own secrets. I also felt certain things were left unfinished and I thought Faith did forgive Nick a little too easily. Considering how she reacted when Abel revealed Nicks connection to the BDSM club. But that being said I did enjoy everything else this story had to offer and I would happily recommend the White Lies Duet to others.
