Jax North. He's handsome, brutally so, and wealthy. Our first encounter is intense and sex is my escape. I go with it. I go with him and what a ride it is. And then, I say goodbye. Only you don't say goodbye to a man like Jax if he doesn't want you to. I've challenged him without meaning to. He wants me. I don't want to want him, and yet, I crave him.

So many secrets, so much intrigue

Murder mystery, romance, family tragedy, corporate intrigue, and more. This book was really good, and the two main characters have so much chemistry that there are heated reactions happening throughout the book. The heroine is named Emma Knight and her father passed away a month ago and she recently found his journal only to discover that he was not the caring kindhearted man she believed him to be.

Emma meets the Hero, Jax North at an awards gala where she has t

4.5 Secretive Stars!

Boy does this author really know how to takes us down some very twisted paths. One Man is the first of 3 books in the Naked Trilogy. It ends on a huge cliffhanger, so much happened and I'm left knowing very little by the end of this book.

The fact that I'm left guessing on so much has me itching for the next book. The more secretive everything is, the faster I want to read to unveil all the truths. The story line is extremely intriguing. I have no idea what part everyone is p

Gah! Not surprising a big fat cliffy. How long do we have to wait for part two? Dang it!!
There is something about the writing style of Jones that seriously calls to me. I’m not one to sit and analyze what it is, however I know that I am addicted to reading her stories.

They are always unique even if the theme runs along side her many other books. Characters from other stories pop in and help tie series together. Focus on the romantic suspense genre means that you will hav

I read Miss Jones book before, Provocative. I remember I do not have warm or like the book very much. Now with One Man, I also feel the same. I think the story is very promising. Romance with a dash of suspense.

The story ends up a bit weird. The romance is picking up very quickly but the build up of suspense fails. I feel the whole book is dragging on the romance. The suspense is on the background. So I am not really feeling it. I give this book 3 stars
Copy provided by NetGalley.

One Man is a mysterious romance about forbidden love, powerful families, and tragic events. From the very first page, I was left wondering what in the world was going on. Did I miss something? It was a frustratingly steamy read that left me wanting the next book ASAP.

The North family and the Knight family are powerful, wealthy families. The Knights own a chain of luxury hotels, whereas the Norths own their own whiskey – North Whiskey. It isn’t until Emma Knight meets J

Review for the complete trilogy.

What a wonderful journey this was!

One of my favorite stories by this author. Truly a wonderful read that has it all: fantastic characters, fiery passion, romance, sizzling and intense chemistry, suspenseful plot-line, emotional conflict, and a stellar cast of supporting characters. Jax and Emma were so incredible together, both strong willed, capable, and vulnerable in their own way. I liked how LRJ portrayed this dynamic duo and how they complemented each other p

One man can change everything. That man can touch you and you tremble all over. That man can wake you up and allow you to breathe when life leaves you unable to catch your breath. For me that ONE MAN is Jax North. But Jax North is nothing I expect. Jax knows my secrets. He was never an accident. Jax North may well be my beautiful disaster.

I love how the blurb on Amazon says that “One Man is the first book in the dangerously sexy Naked Trilogy”. Very well said … dangerous and sexy are definitely 2 words I would use to describe thisTrilogy. Others would be exciting and addicting.

What a great beginning to this new trilogy! Filled with suspense, drama, plenty of secrets and questions that are not easily answered, I was intrigued and deeply invested in the story.

The heat factor is absolutely sizzling in its intensity. But the real heart of this story are the secrets that both the hero and heroine are keeping from each other eve

"The real me is invisible to everyone but him. But why have I accepted that status in my life? Where has that gotten me?"

Lisa Renee Jones is a puppet master and she loves to pull my strings. She purposely makes me suspicious of characters, leading me to believe or assume certain things, knowing damn well she's still gonna surprise me in the end. I say this after only reading the first book and having no idea 'whodunnit', but I didn't just fall off the turnip truck, I did that much earlier an

Lisa Renee Jones once again masterfully transported me into world dominated by billionaires, filled with betrayals, secrets and loss. Both characters know loss all too well and that commonality just intensified their instant connection and together they’re determined to uncover the secrets that started it all.

Jax North was oh, so sexy from the moment he made his appearance. Cool, controlled, he had a mission and Emma Knight was his target. But th

I really liked One Man, but I sadly didn't love it as much as I was hoping to. I liked both Jax and Emma as characters for the most part, and I thought that they had sizzling hot chemistry with each other. However, I didn't like the fact that One Man definitely suffers from one of the most ridiculous cases of insta-love that I've encountered in a book in years, and that includes YA romance books; which are usually the biggest offenders when it comes to a book suffering from insta-love.

3.5 "North Whisky" stars

Firstly, Contemporary Romance definitely isn't my favourite type of the Romance genre. I tend to prefer Historical and PNR.

Secondly, the ultra-successful millionaire trope also doesn't rock my boat too much.

But.... I liked One Man.

I liked Jax North. A lot.
Typical alpha male, but still different enough to interest me.

Emma... I didn't connect with her but still found her arc appealing. She is going through a lot, but she is keeping her head up and staying stro

*I received a free copy of One Man from the author. This has in no way influenced my review which is honest and unbiased.*

One Man hit the right spot. There is romance, there is suspense, and there is danger, plus a mystery. Jax and Emma both had secrets. And some of those secrets, they might not even know they held. Their chemistry was off the charts - and even if their romance was fast, I truly enjoyed myself.
One Man finished with a cliffhanger, and I'm very anxious to see what will happen next
The female narrator’s male voices all sound the same. When there is a scene with Jax, Chance, York, and Randall, I could not tell which was which. Plus, the female narrator always sounded breathless and panicked. Her voice got on my nerves. I can not believe that the author did not get a better narrator. Not sure if the publisher or author chooses the narrator(s).

I do not understand why Jax wanted Emma. She was always fidgety and manic. The woman needed a psychiatrist and not a boyfriend. Withi
I am not a big fan of LRJ's writing style. I think she over states too much and her plots and paragraphs are pretty repetitive. There were also some grammatical/spelling errors.

The connection between Jax North and Emma Knight is "insta" but can these two adversaries learn to trust each other given their family history?

There is of course, hot sex, hot scenes and an ex fiance who thinks he can still control Emma, lots of backhanded deals that we are still waiting to understand.

The book concludes
Lindsey (Linz Readz)
One day I’ll be patient. I’ll wait for all of the books in the series to release and binge them all so I won’t have to suffer through cliffhangers! I can’t wait to get my hands on book two in this new series. Even though I might be waiting impatiently because of the way the first book ended, I know the wait will be worth it. This author may like to make us suffer a little bit but she makes it so extremely worth it.

Not your average romance, One Man is sexy, mysterious, and intense. From the very first page, this story is filled with secrets, leaving the reader wondering about characters’ motivations and intentions. Paired with Lisa Renee Jones’ fantastic writing style, and it’s easy to get lost in the story. I was definitely intrigued by Jax and Emma, and left wanting more when the book ended on a CLIFFHANGER.

4 star review One Man (Naked Trilogy #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

I found this book to be well written and had me engaged from the first to the last chapter. This was a romantic suspense story with more emphasis on the romance that the suspense in my opinion. There is a cliff hanger so my review is brief as I do not want to spoil the storyline.

There were plenty of secrets and hopefully all will be revealed in due course. Emma Knight and Jax North, the chemistry between them is hot and intense and yet

Emma and Jax are both burdened with secrets and family nightmares. He comes looking for her in search of answers about his brother's death. She is just trying to find her way after the death of her father and the unfairness of the results of his will.

After finding her father's journal, some of the secrets are exposed. The man she had looked up to all her life is not what she thought he was. He was full of deceit and evil, hurting those who loved him. It is up to her to find out what her father

Wowza! This one is a doozy folks! Lisa took me on one heck of a hot and steamy ride. Super great flow to the story. Lots of little twists. Tons of crazy secrets that I need all the answers to.

This is the start to another trilogy for Lisa Renee Jones. Like always with her writing, this book is filled with angst, romance and plenty of secrets and suspense.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat and holding on until the cliffhanger, which I knew was coming, but it left me hanging on with a lot of questions. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Emma and Jax.
