Gabe Maxwell is a powerhouse in the boardroom, a man with a dark past he's buried under success and power. He's not a white picket fence and forever kind of guy and he's definitely not into redheads. That is until one corners him, kisses him and thanks him for waking her up. Right before she walks away and leaves him. She's gone and he's obsessed.

“Maybe one day you’ll trust me enough to show me the man beneath the smiles.”

I adore this author! Reading one of her books is like consuming drugs, the more you're into it the deeper you fall. 💕

Gabe is back! He seemed the easy going brother in previous books of the Dirty series. He was anything but easy going in this one. I think we are finally going to learn what has made Gabe a forever playboy. That is until Abbie came into his life.

Both Gabe and Abbie have some pretty messed up pasts but they are not revealed in this book. This was the start of their relationship that jumps right into the action of Abbies Ex and Gabe's fathers manipulations.

Can’t get into this.
Gabe doesn’t get do involvements with women. But when his first brief meeting with Abbie only fuels his desire for more, he takes full advantage of his next meeting. Soon he’s doing all he can to persuade her to stay the night. Unfortunately, there are forces at work against Abbie that threaten no only herself but anyone who is close to her. She’s in deep with Gabe but now she has to take steps to protect him.

This story was incredibly captivating, extremely intriguing and very steamy! It had a good level of suspense, intensity, good character development, a dash of fear and a lot of fun.

— The writing was really good and sucked me straight into the story without a moments hesitation!
— The characters were okay. I can’t say I was a huge fan of either of the main characters; I felt simply indifferent towards them, and their romance was way too insta-love for my liking. It didn’t feel like they had any p

I don’t think I’ve ever been so disconnected from characters created by the amazing storyteller that is Lisa Renee Jones. Every novel I’ve read of hers had always filled me with suspense and thrills and raised my body temperature to all time highs; however, I didn’t experience any of that with Gabe and Abigail’s story.

For me, there wasn’t much “meat” to the story. I ended up stopping with just a few chapters left of their story. So much time was spent on Abigail being wishy-washy wit

His Demand was a deliciously sexy start to a duet of books featuring Gabe and Abigail, two attorneys who heat up the pages while staying one step ahead of their nemesis. But a surprising twist in the final paragraphs had me wondering if one of them is hiding something sinister.

Lisa Renee Jones has quickly become a favorite of mine when I want an erotic-edged romance full of secrets and a complex storyline. And I was so happy to se

I must say I love love love this author and I have read all of her works and its pretty hit and miss depending on the MC’s role. I didn’t care for the protective service roles of the last series and this series didn’t have too much involvement in it and Gabe was a lawyer. This book gave me serious Deja vu so I am quite unsure If we have been introduced to Abigail and her plot of land before but I swear there was some serious foreshadowing.

Gabe Maxwell is so much more than he allows the world to see. His emotions are a bottomless pit. It's his complications that make him an intriguing character. His Demand starts to unlock the mystery that is Gabe Maxwell, business extraordinaire and expose the broken man underneath the subterfuge. It's easy to dislike him, unless you understand him. Jones removes the blinders and shines a light on the vulnerabilities that make the man. Pain makes him dangerous, loves makes him lethal and we ain't ...more
No rating because I only got to the 3rd chapter..... but if I could rate it, it would get -30 stars.

This is a better known author right? Like some of her books are best sellers right? I honestly wouldn't know because none of her previous books ever appealed to me.... and now I know why I should have continued to stay away

When I started this book I wasn't sure what to expect because each of Lisa Renee Jones' books have a touch of suspense or an air of mystery to them, would it be something from his past that wreaked havoc on them or would it be hers, or would it be something totally different altogether?

“She’s mine tonight and I will have all of her.”

It’s the kiss that changes EVERYTHING in HIS DEMAND by Lisa Renee Jones, the first spectacular book in her new Dirtier Duet! We first met Gabe Maxwell in the Dirty Rich series—he is the charming, funny, roguishly sexy brother of Reid and Cat--but as it turns out, there is MUCH MORE to this big, blond hottie than meets the eye!

Let me begin by saying that I really enjoy Lisa Renee Jones' writing style. I've read quite a few of her books and found them very enjoyable. His Demand showed promise, but for some reason, fell flat for me. I felt like it was teetering right there but something was missing. I had difficulty connecting with the characters, especially Abbie. Even though Gabe was domineering and did everything to the extreme, I somewhat understood him. I absolutely did not understand her at all. I believe that par ...more

Reviewed on,
My god Lisa has done it again, got me gripped and excited to be reading the story. Them suddenly it is the end. I knew it was a duet, but it was full of action in and outside the bedroom. This is Gabe Maxwell’s story and completely standalone, but we met some of characters from other books. We met Gabe plenty of times always as the laid back brother of the Maxwell clan, but always knowing there was something painful from his past, but his a good guy at heart.

A fast-paced read, with an interesting male character and a spitfire redhaired that are mixed together perfectly by the author.
I liked their instant chemistry and all their sexy moments which were very well done by the author and left me panting at times.
A few twists and turns that remind us why it's always important to be honest and say the truth always even if you don't know and trust the person next to you.
There are questions that need answers and I'm sure the next book in the duet will be th

3.5-3.75 stars. Quickie review- I liked this book, but I think I like this author's standalone books more. In her trilogies and duets, especially in this book, there is too much back and forth wishy-washiness. I really like this story and this couple, but I feel like these books need editing down badly. There is a lot of drama without much resolution. Still, I definitely enjoyed this book and I look forward to the final book in the duet. ...more

I had almost forgotten that we had stories for the entire Maxwell family with the exception of Gabe, so you can only imagine how happy I was to discover that his story isn’t just one book, but a 2 book series! That implies that his story will be far more complex than the others and i’m really excited about that.

So as we all know from the other installments around the brothers and their lovely sister, Gabe has some darkness in his past outside of the nonsense known as his father. He’s got some bi

Gabe Maxwell doesn't like redheads or relationships, but when he meets Abigail, all of that goes out the window. But Abbie, as he likes to call her, isn't as sweet and innocent as she may seem. She has a past that could get both of them hurt. Abbie's ex is a billionaire and determined to make her life a living hell just to get what he wants. Gabe has enough of his own money to fight any man who wants to hurt Abbie or her family. But what Gabe doesn't know can hurt him and Abbie doesn't want to s ...more

I think the story line could have been great and the characters had potential. What I found was a lot of repetition-- constant reminders through the same words and the same dialogue about how the characters couldn't be together. So much so that it wasn't building the chemistry between Gabe and Abbie but became more tedious where i would skip over passages.
I get that this is a romantic suspense so of course the romance part might be a whirlwind of sorts but this instalment of the duet happens wi

There is so much more to Gabe than you can see in all the other books. Yes, he’s funny and a bit of a man whore. Yes, he’s the “good cop” to Reid’s “bad cop”. And yes he has his secrets. He’s got a dark side he keeps just under the surface. You know it’s there and that it’s not just because of his evil father. This darkness has a female written all over it and no one knows who or why.

All it takes to bring out the other facets of Gabe are a feisty, independent redhead named Abigail. It seems dam

But you see this side of him you don't expect to see once Addie is in the picture. I love that commanding sweet side that takes over when Addie is near.

Finally, Gabe's story! He takes one look at Abbie and he's a goner. He has to have her. But, she disappears on him for awhile. Then he finds her again when she seeks legal counsel, and the chase is on!

I FLOVED this first part of Gabe and Abbie's story. It's seriously hot, and Gabe and Abbie are an interesting, likable couple. There is lots going on here, though, so don't go into it thinking it's some piece of legal love fluff, because it's not fluff at all. It's substantial and Gabe especially i

A treat that caused me to block out the day so I could just read it without being interrupted. These Maxwell brothers have a way of just digging into your heart and never leaving.

I lean in and press my cheek to hers, brushing my lips over her delicate skin, inhaling that sweet scent of her even as I nuzzle her neck. “I want you in a bad way, woman. I brought you here. That’s more control than you realize it is.” I pull back to look at her. “Don’t move your hands. Do what I say. It’s all about pleasure. It’s all about the moment.” I don’t force her to respond. I lean in and brush my lips over hers. “It’s just you and me, and we’re on top of the dark waters of that ocean behind you, where no one can reach us. Don’t move,” I say again. This time I release her hands and I step away from her, just far enough to appreciate how damn hot she is leaning against that railing, the ocean and the Statue of Liberty behind her. Her in nothing but thigh highs and a tiny pair of panties. “Now what?” she challenges, her chin lifting in defiance, as if she refuses to cower under my inspection, which makes me wonder if the man before me wanted that. If he wanted her to cower. “This,” I say, reaching for my shirt. Unbuttoning just enough to pull it over my head. I” 0 likes
