descriptionI enjoyed this one a lot. It was a fantastic read. This isn't surprising as every book I have read by this author has been fantastic. That said, it was also my least favorite of the series. There was just something about this couple I couldn't connect with. Both main characters came across a little "meh" to me. Especially Jacob who I found a bit flat personality wise. But it happens. Not every book can be a home run and like I said even with that issue I still found it an enjoyable read.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m an LRJ fanatic. A freaking fiend. I have to read everything she touches because she’s just that amazing. She crafts these intricate stories full of romance, mystery and suspense that always leave me awed with her talents. By the time I got to the end of Falling Under, I was speechless. It took me a while to even be able to put my thoughts to paper. That’s how you know an author has grabbed you by the gullet, in the best of ways.

Falling Under by Lisa Renee Jones: Review & Release Day Celebration
Gutsy, suspense filled romantic stories are what she does best.
Just when you think she can’t come up with better characters than she has brought in the past Walker Brothers stories, Lisa Renee Jones turns around and proves me wrong.

In Falling Under we get to meet Jacob. An oh-my-God hot hunk of a man who has past, a secret one at that. He is matched perfectly with Detective Jewel Carpenter in every aspect. From the tough talk and argumentative banter to their heat between the sheets

Falling Under is intense with an emphasis on the thriller aspects of the plot. While the romance is an integral part of the plot it is the events which have defined the main characters identities that pack the most punch within the narrative.

Both Jacob and Jewel have experienced more loss than any one person should be acquainted with; it is these losses that have defined them. With more emotional walls than a fortress and determined to keep everyone at arm's length as to ensure they do not feel

I'm so addicted to this crazy, funny, talented and badass Walker Security family. As each of the team finds love the family grows and they get crazier and funnier. But don't let that fool you, they might have a sense of humor, but you don't want to get on their bad side.

No, there was no need to have read the previous books. I just felt that it made for good background on the other characters that were encountered during the read. I loved the flow of this series. Each couple had been given their own platform to shine and connect. Jacob and Jewel were just the shot of excitement and adrenaline needed to make this move by. The pacing was good, and the plot was drawing.

Falling Under takes us back to the men of Walker Security and the excitement their stories bring. After meeting Jacob in Pulled Under, I was intrigued. The strong, silent, brooding type, I had to know more. Jones never fails to deliver an entertaining and enthralling story.

These two characters took us for a ride. Stubborn, hard headed, and intense, Jacob and Jewel struggled to see eye to eye. The push and pull of their relationship was sexy and I was eager to see them cave. At first, Jewel’s ref

Jacob King is a stone faced, hard and sexy man who works for the Walker clan. He’s an ex-Green Beret with secrets he keeps hidden from everyone. He doesn’t get close to anyone, never has relationships and never, ever falls in love. Asher calls him ‘the Tin Man’ and with good reason but one look at Jewel Carpenter and everything he knows about himself and the world he inhabits, flies out the window.

EEEEk! This book was SO thrilling to read. It was the perfect blend of OMG WHO IS THE BAD GUY, and OMG ARE THEY FINALLY GOING TO EXPLODE FROM THIS SEXUAL TENSION.

Yes. I loved it. I used the shouty caps. I HAD TO guys. It was so much fun.

Jewel and Jacob were a riot when they got going with each there and throwing in the hunt for a stalker and it was a blast.  I loved the fact that not only did we watch two people fall in love, but we got to watch them do it in a protector/detective situat

Naughty Level: 3/5
POV: Dual/1st person

A straight up mystery and suspense through and through. Jewel and Jacob had a high powered story.

Both Jewel and Jacob were extreme control freaks; which caused lots of friction...resulting in some seriously worded foreplay between them. Their attraction was very intense and Jewel was the one most reluctant to accept it. She’s spent her whole life on a mission of putting the bad guys away and felt doing so alone was the only way to avoid mi
Falling Under is another amazing Thriller Romance taking place at Walker Security.

Jacob is ex special operations and now part of the Walker team. He is compared to a robot. He has a permanent poker face and never shows emotions. Until now!

Jewel doesn't allow anyone to get close to her to avoid pain. Everyone she loves die. She is pretty fearless and taking down bad guys is her main interest.

Being self sufficient, Jewel doesn't welcome the idea of having Jacob as her shadow. She is receiving thre

Favorite quote:

"We did just meet, but I know from my many warzones that those you fight with become more to you in less time. And we are fighting a war..together."


I thought I am over the whole sexy-I'm-an-alpha-male-and-a-control-freak story line, but when it comes to the Walker security boys, I feed off their intense dark stares and giant physique because holy hell, they are IMPOSSIBLE not to love.

Another of Lisa Renee Jones' wonderful romantic suspenses, with a twist of the psychological thriller in there for added measure.

This was a slightly shorter read from Jones, and a standalone, so a little different to what I'm accustomed to (her Dirty Money series being the most recent, but she is very much known for her series, layering intrigue). I wasn't dis

I was sure I was going to love Jacob King when I met him in the last book but I didn't realize how much I was going to love him until I got to know him in this one. There is something about a quiet, hard, ex-green beret who will literally take a bullet to save your life. That is something a homicide detective who catches killers for a living and now has someone focused on her is not finding easy to live with. These two together is something else. They both demand control. Control of themselves, ...more
Intense and suspenseful from page one to the last one. This author has a penchant for suspense and it shows in her increasingly concentrated plots that deal with crime, the law, and complex characters with complex lives.

The female lead in this novel is a police detective with too many personal losses on her back. She is extremely competent and honourable, so having to accommodate a constant shadow in the shape of a bodyguard that will push all her limits and rules is quite a challenge for her. T

Jacob and a Jewel bring a lot to this series and I couldn’t stop reading this from the get go. Their back and forth banter had me going along with them. What I loved most was their vulnerability and how real hard yet easy it was to let their guard down. The attitude of not needing each other was futile, can’t stop it no matter how hard they try.

As always it is a treat to read one of Lisa’s books, and Falling Under was no exception. We have a former stone cold assassin working for Walker Security called Jacob who to others shows no emotions. Our heroine is a police detective who has lost everyone close to her apart from her father, who has Walker Security working for him during a difficult time and needs his daughter protected.
Jewel is a kick ass heroine with plenty of Intelligence and fire,

Jacob is not one for messing around or beating around the bush, “we had a deal. I’m your one-on-one protection. That means I stay with you. That means I sleep here with you.” I love that Jacob has a bossy attitude, “it was my professional assessment that we should kiss.” The man is just so bossy, “pack a bag,” he repeats. “You’re coming with me. End of conversation.” I loved this book, I fell in love with Jacob, his woman was always getting a rise out of him and it was entertaining to see his re ...more
