Poison Kisses: Part 3
Part Three of the sexy, thrilling three-part Poison Kisses serial.
Sexy. Dark. Edgy. Poison Kisses is a spinoff story from Lisa Renee Jones's sexy Dirty Money world told in three novellas.
Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you.
Now that I know what Seth hid from me, I want the secret to be t...more
I have a super-sized headache today, so this review is going to be blingless...
Well, this one turned out to be the best of the three parts for me. We finally stopped with the around and around BS (although the first bit was a bit repetitive). But overall this three book series was my least favorite by this author.
I usually love this author's books. She knows how to write a fantastic story without all the cliché tropes and OW shit. So you can imagine my shock when I opened part one super excited ...more
This installment was more fast-paced than the previous two and kept my adrenaline high while I waited to see the chips fall where they ...more
I do love them, but honestly I had a hard time finding that suck in your breath, hard core connection with this series. I think it was due to the fact that it was broken into pieces and I had to wait for the next installment.
I am not a patient reader. I want to know what is happening now and be able to finish as fast or slow as I want to. Having to wait for more just annoyed me and I lost pieces of the story too.
Now about Part 3 of the story. As usual, th ...more
Btw. book #3 is told in Amanda's POV.
It starts right where the 2nd one ended: Seth runs back into the hotel room to stop Amanda from seeing that message on his phone.
But it was too late of course. She's seen it and she's pointing the gun at him.
She needs answers or she'll kill him - even if it will kill her too, because she's always loved him more than anything. But of course we very quickly talk things out and start trusting each other again.
And of course we still have to find the crazy poison ...more
I wasn't a fan of having the book broken up into 3 parts.The novella length wasn't fun for me, but this is probably just a personal preference because I don't like novellas in general.
By the end of the book I re ...more
The only problem with that is determining the good guys from the bad guys. And when someone is trying to kill you, and you don't know who it is, you can't rule out the agent you're in love with, right? When the bullets start flying, who determines if you are the target or just collateral damage? What an amazing finale to this action-packed addictive serial told from Amada's POV. Now that she's come out of hiding, she fills us in on all the mi ...more

I loved seeing Amanda's guard come down where Seth was concerned rebuilding the trust between them that was severed so badly during their previous mission. Insight is gained as to Amanda's upbringing, the depth of her feelings for Seth and also the loneliness of the life she has lead so far.
Clever use of cha ...more
This is seriously thrilling. With a sharp style and no room for hesitancy, the plot tightens to a suffocating point. Seth and Amanda break through the last issue between them. Trust becomes a hot, deep, tantalizing test that reinforces their relationship and surely made my breathing heavy. What a scene!
The operation in motion reaches a crescendo, unburying the past in shocking ways. I enjoyed the ...more
The Poison Kisses Trilogy comes to an end with this third installment. Seth and Amanda are in a race against time to stop a madman. They must navigate dangerous waters while putting their trust in one another. I loved watching them in their element. Brilliant and tough, an unstoppable force. While I was captivated by this story, I couldn’t help but feel a little dissatisfied with the conclusion of Amanda’s personal aspect. I was hoping for a bit more here.
Jones’ writing drops us right in the mid ...more
** ARC kindly provided for an honest review. **
It was so far my favorite part, more interesting, thrilling and finally more answers.
I was waiting for them. I finally get it… most of.
After two long parts, were Amanda and Seth were almost trying not kill each other literally but having tons of hot and angry intercourse, in their mission to save the world. Now it was about time to finally trust and prove that all they felt was real, and mostly worth the fight.
Surprisingly, I got intrigued by a ...more
“I don’t like unknowns. Ever. Unknowns mean trouble. And trouble gets you killed.”
Poison Kisses is a three-part series, each book released a week apart and the concluding part released this week. This was one of those series where I had to read each instalment as soon as it hit my kindle and for the hour or so they take to read my eyes never left the pages. CIA/FBI, espionage, assassins in all guises makes this entertaining read ...more
*Poison Kisses: Part Three contains spoilers for the previous books in the series and cannot standalone.
You know you are in for a crazy ride when a book opens with a gun wielding heroine whose aim is on the hero’s head. After the bomb that was dropped in Part Two, I was crazy excited to see how the conclusion of this series would play out.
In Part Three, we finally get Amanda’s point of view after being in Seth’s head during the last two books. Seeing the betrayal through her eyes kicks t ...more
Well, hello Amanda's POV.
I really enjoyed getting the details of what happened from Amanda. It gave a different angle to the story as well as a different perspective on what happened, not only in the present, but 3 years ago.
Again, this starts about 4 seconds after the previous title ends, and with a little sum up of the previous book, by the author. I love that Lisa Renee Jones does this. Not because I wasn't paying attention to the others, but because I might ha ...more
How can you tell the good guy from the bad guy, when the good guy holds a devastating secret? Part three in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’ serial Poison Kisses gives us an explosive and unexpected conclusion.
Amanda and Seth are now running for their lives. Unable to trust that one isn’t trying to kill the other, they stick close as they unravel and piece together this convoluted puzzle. Who’s telling the trut ...more
“Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you.”
In the conclusion of Poison Kisses Part Three by Lisa Renee Jones, everything finally comes together. This picks up immediately where two left off, a gun wielding Amanda ready to kill Seth for lying to her, and him rushing to explain that they were once again being set up. This installment is told from Amanda’s POV, and it was intriguing to see what she was thinking, ...more
“We’re alone without each other, even when other people are in the room. And while I used to believe that alone was good, alone was safe, you don’t know alone until you’ve been something other than alone. And after three years of knowing alone intimately without him, I now ...more

As they continue their fragile alliance, the past keeps surfacing. Trust is not easy even though they love each other. This love/hate relationship will just have to simmer in the back burner as they try to find the elusive killer before he strikes again.
The story is enhanced by th ...more
What a finale. After so many questions, we finally know what happened! As you read the book, you form hypotheses that will be countered over and over until the truth cones out and surprises you.
I kind of wish the resolution had more bang, but it is a neat and complete one, completely in line with how agents like to work. So despite it not being a huge bang, it is a fitting one.

Out of the three books, this is probably my favorite.
Not just because the truth was finally revealed, but because I get to read Seth being humanized by a cat and it's just beautiful to see a strong, ruthless man turn wanton for the woman he loves. Also, my crush for Amanda is real, her intelligence and strength was what drew me in the first place, she brings kickass to a whole new level and I couldn't even imagine a more perfect match for Seth.

Action Packed. Fast Paced. Sexy
These are the three things that characterizes Lisa's work.
I must say I fell in love real hard with Seth and Amanda, their strong development and will is most certainly something that stands out real fast when reading.and getting to know them.
