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

The Naked Trilogy has finally launched and I am so happy to share Jax and Emma's wickedly sexy, and dangerously suspenseful story! Book one: ONE MAN is LIVE on all platforms now!



ABOUT ONE MAN:
One man can change everything. That man can touch you until 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. He's handsome, brutally so, and wealthy, money and power easily at his fingertips. He's dark

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

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.

So mysterious! I was drawn to the secretive and slightly threatening atmosphere of this novel, the first in a trilogy that promises to be mind-grabbing.

Like Romeo and Juliet, the main characters are in the middle of a feud between two powerful families with piling secrets.

I love a man with a hidden agenda that conflicts with his feelings for the woman he's supposed, to despise. And I love a woman torn by her emotions but strong enough to brave the storm raging around her.

Jax and Emma are those p

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. Definitely left me wanting more. Jones is epic with her story telling. Which is probably why I’ve read them all.... this one is right up there for me.

This book is so intense. It’s not a short book but the story flew by because I was so engrossed in the storyline. Chase himself is very intense. Emma is sweet but she’s hiding a dangerous secret. The chemistry between the two is nuclear. I can’t wait for One Woman. I received an advance review copy for an honest review

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

One Man pulled me in from the very first chapter and didn't let go until one heckuva "oh no you did NOT leave me hanging like that" moment!

4.5 stars One Man sucked me in right from the first page and kept me entertained until the very end. Set in a world of riches and opulence, this book is full of mistrust, secrets, hidden agendas, shady characters, and suspense and not to mention some hot in between the sheets action.

Jax North is a strong, sexy, determined male who is out for revenge - revenge against the Knight family who he believes had a hand in his brother’s apparent “suicide”. Emma Knight finds her life in complete upheaval

"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 and

One Man by Lisa Renee Jones is the first book in her brand new Naked trilogy . Told in dual POV between Emma and Jax, this story is sexy, dangerous and has a heck of a cliffhanger ending. I have long been a fan of this author, ever since I first read If I Were You back in 2013. Her books are always sexy, always have an underlying mystery and always ALWAYS completely suck me into the story.

Emma keeps herself separate and doesn't make herself available. Sex? Sure! Feelings? No way! But when her d

What a way to start this new trilogy! The action starts right away and stays with you all through the book. The story is full of suspense, drama, dubious characters and most of all – secrets. I was hooked from page one and before I knew it, the book was over. You will fall in love with Jax and Emma and push for them throughout the story. There is a cliffhanger and it’s a doozy.

Jax North is a handsome, charismatic man who has gone through terrible loss. Jax thinks Emma is the key for revenge agai

And oh it was very mean cliffy, which is why I've started this review with whining or complaining about it, however you want to take it. I'm not saying I wouldn't read this book again, because honestly, I would as it's one of those situations that hurts so good. See, Jax North, is the owner of North W ...more
