A Sinful Encore is LIVE! The Brilliance Trilogy is now complete and you can binge read Kace and Aria's story!

Beautifully wrapped up! So much love pouring off these 2.
It’s a love-hate situation when it comes time to read the last book of the series. You’re anxious to find out what happens but yet you don’t want it to end either.

Jones is a wonderful storyteller and incorporates so many different pieces into her stories that there’s never a chance to be bored.

The two main characters continue to develop this amazing relationship. With clues dripping in and supporting characters bec
What an amazing conclusion to this remarkable trilogy!

In this final edition, Kace and Aria begin to completely trust each other as they unravel the various clues they’ve uncovered. Watching Aria morph into the woman she was always meant to be, and accepting herself as such, was wonderful. I loved that she found the strength to do so.

It's the end, all of the secrets have been revealed, the good guys won, and there's tons of love to finally enjoy. Kace and Aria found their happy ending, which was hard won and beautiful.

I'm a huge LRJ fan and can't recommend her books enough. If you love stories full of passion and intrigue, she should be your go-to and the Brilliance Trilogy should be on your list!

Kace and Aria’s final book was absolutely outstanding! Lisa has nailed it completely with this book. Many of the questions were answered, for instance Where was Gio all this time? Who is Sofia? and much more. After the cliffhanger in A Wicked song I was very interested in what Gio had to say. I had

This was an excellent ending to Kace & Aria Trilogy...Everyone is after the formula of The Stradivarius violin that is part of Gio and Aria family history. The suspense wrapped around not knowing who to trust and that includes Gio now that he is back and needing to explain about his disappearance and especially about Sophia. With everything unraveling around Kace & Aria, Kace will do anything to protect the woman that has brought him everything.

From book one I've been anxious to find out how Aria and her brother were going to reclaim their family legacy. I have to say that ending was not what I was expecting. I do enjoy when an author can surprise me.

This couple is one I will be adding to my favorites list. I adored the way Kace took Aria in, protected her and helped her stop hiding who she was. I also loved the way Aria understood Kace and his love of the violin. She encouraged him every step of the way.

If you’ve picked up A Sinful Encore but haven’t read A Reckless Note or A Wicked Song stop reading this right now and go read those first! Come back after you’ve finished the first two books in The Brilliance Trilogy, it’ll be just a matter of days because you’re gonna devour them and be dying to read the final book. Trust me. You don’t want any spoilers.

And speaking of spoilers, you’ll get none of those here. Just know that A Sinful Encore picks up just where A Wicked Song leaves you holding

This was a great conclusion to the trilogy! I have been really enjoying Aria and Kace's story which is filled with tons of suspense since you do not know who to trust at all.

Aria and Kace are finally all in with their relationship and I was thrilled that they didn't let anyone, Gio, stand in their way. Gio is back and he has a lot of explaining to do on why is disappeared. We get answers to that as well as who Sophia is. We also learn about the formula and Aria's father's wishes. There is a bit

Gio's back! But he's not about to let his sister be with someone he doesn't trust, and it appears he doesn't trust Kace. Will Aria allow her brother to drive a wedge between her and the man she's fallen hard for?

This conclusion to the Brilliance Trilogy was pitched perfectly - the relationship was in the forefront as Kace and Aria's feelings grew, stabilized, and became something quite beautiful. The steam rose and the chemistry between the two was even hotter
A powerful finale for an intense trilogy. Musical secrets, dramatic characters, and thrilling romance.

The mystery really thickens in this final book. I loved the suspense that suffuses the atmosphere. Gio reappears in a blaze of mistrust and anger, setting Aria and Kace on edge. This couple truly exploring their intimacy, both emotional and physical. Hot all around!

Enemies abound while this persecuted couple is trying to claim their future together. I loved the scenes with the cupcakes, the on

From beginning to end, The Brilliance Trilogy held me captive. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the final book but also wished that it wouldn’t end. Kace and Aria’s story was beautiful, heart-wrenching and so full of love. The love that they had for each other as well as for family.
I felt like a part of me came home with Mark and Crystal and Chris and Sara, Savage. Now, full circle as Kayden and Ella join the story. I couldn’t have been happier to have the whole family together again. Now, we

The third book in the Brilliance Trilogy, A SINFUL ENCORE was a wonderful conclusion. From the very first book, this trilogy was a heartracing suspenseful read, and this final book was no different. Aria and Kace are continuing to chase down the mystery of the Stradivarius formula, attempting to solve all the secrets along the way.

The relationship between Aria and Kace has continued to evolve, and the trust between them becomes vitally important is they are to succeed. I lo

A Sinful Encore is the gripping conclusion of the Brilliance Trilogy and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Aria and Kace are magnificent characters and the love and devotion they have for each other is amazing. This delightful, well-crafted story has angst, heat, conflict, tension, suspense, passion, and so much heart.

Aria and Kace’s finale was off the charts amazing! I did not want to put this book down! After the cliffhanger in part two I was ready for Gio’s explanation and boy this author did not disappoint!

What did I like? Kace and Aria have some steamy scenes in this part which I really loved. They are so attuned to each other that it’s nice sometimes to see the attraction really ignite. I thought this book was a bit longer than the other two which I love because the author really does deliver the actio

Kace and Aria’s story has been roller coaster ride since the very beginning and the conclusion to their story is no different. So much was packed into this book and all those burning questions from the first two books are FINALLY answered, like who is Sofia? And where was Gio?

I have loved Kace and Aria from the beginning. Their chemistry is insane and it only got better throughout this book. I loved how Kace was with Aria. He brought out who she was always suppose to be. She grew so much through

A Sinful Encore is a fantastical conclusion to the Brilliance Trilogy. You get all the answers you are searching for and then some. I love where Lisa Renee Jones takes us with Aria and Kace. I seriously could not get enough of the passion, the love and the rollercoaster ride that is Aria and Kace. You feel everything that Aria goes through when it comes to her family and why she is the target. Kace and Aria are so sexy together. I really couldn't get enough of this series.

This story pulled me in from the first book. The Stradivarius family, a mystery centuries old, murder, a rock star violinist...... What more do you need? I really enjoyed the ending to this series and felt she was able to wrap it up in a way that fit. I did become bored with Aria's introspection at times as well as some of the sexy times in the book. It often seemed like the author was trying to make the connection between Kace and Aria so deeply woven that it felt rushed or unrealistic. Overall ...more

A SINFUL ENCORE is the third book in the Brilliance series. This series must be read in the order of release.

I am always amazed at how books seem to come to me at pivotal points in my life. This series has an under theme of suicide prevention. Kace and Chris Merit (from the Inside Out series) are working together on a charity to raise awareness and money for this cause. I received this book on the same day that I found out that my ex-husband had made that “permanent solution to a temporary probl

This summary certainly doesn’t do the story justice, but let’s just say that we get to see so much turmoil and uncertainty in this last book that you are forced to truly ask yourself who is on wha side. We have been through the ringer with this couple, watching Kace and Aria grow stronger, even though it seems like their pasts are tearing them apart. There are so many pieces of a joined history that they didn’t realize that when it all comes out, there’s further validation that they are potentia ...more

Oh, my goodness. I absolutely LOVED this series and the final book certainly did not disappoint. I have been patiently waiting for this book to come out and it lived up to the hype.

This is the final story of Kace & Aria. They are the two remaining links to the formula for the beautiful and highly sought after Stradivarius violins. Because of that, they are also hunted by people that want to kill them for the formula. Aria's brother, Gio, who has been missing since the beginning of the s

This final book in the trilogy was really good!! I loved Kace and Aria's relationship throughout all the books and they deserved every bit of happiness. A Sinful Encore picks up right where A Wicked Song ends off (which was a HUGE cliffhanger!!) and is nonstop the rest of the book. I was glad with how Gio's story ends and him reconciling with Aria. I absolutely loved how Aria virtually has no one at the beginning of the series and is in hiding to end with a huge group of friends, peop

The Brilliance Trilogy was one of those series that drew me in from the first book. It was also one where each book seemed impossible to put down and once I reached the final page, I couldn’t wait for the next. And that wasn’t just because of the cliff hangers in A Reckless Note and A Wicked Song.
