The first was pretty good, involving a young lady named Danielle, whose convinced her ranch is being taken over and sabotaged by the new guy in town-Chase.
Trust is the name of the game and Dani is in a league all her own after her own troubled past.
Is this guy trying to take over , win her heart, or both?
As for the latter half of the book I just couldn't get i ...more
Renegade Son was a cute read with fun characters. There was mystery but nothing thriller type mystery. Hmmmm, more of a suspenseful plot.
Midnight Son was ok. I didn’t like it as much as Renegade Son. It just didn’t keep my interest very well.
All in all, interesting stories.
Many thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and author for the opportunity to read this book for my honest op ...more
This is two story’s and I will speak to each respectively.
The first story was not my favourite, the characters behaviour actually annoyed me throughout. It was not very realistic. But the way the landscape and characters life is brought to life is very well done and worth a read.
The second story was much better and I liked the characters much more. Again a rich landscape which I love. This one followed a more solid storyline and was a nice read albeit ...more

I liked Chase and Dani. Dani is spunky and Chase is quite alpha. There are a lot of twists and turns in this romantic suspense. There is a dog and an equally spunky kid so I couldn’t help but like the book.
This is a second chance romance. Ashley is s ...more
In the second story, loved how we’re not sure what went wrong with Ashley and Trevor. Who’s family did wrong? Loved how they realize they still ...more
3.5 Hearts This is two stories previously released but now released together in this story.
I can not recall ever reading a Lisa Jackson book before. There was a lot of suspense. Here is the thing, these stories are very different. I think readers will find they like one more than the other.
In my case I liked the first story more than the second. The characters in both stories were well written and the suspense was interesting.
I am not sure I will become ...more
I am a fan of Lisa Jackson. However, these two stories were not her best. The first one left me with questions about out who did what and the second one was more soft porn than a mystery. Her constant description about the colors of her characters eyes and hair made feel like I was inside a box of crayons. Her hair was black but that was constantly repeated. And th at goes for his hair. It felt she had been challenged to see how times and ways black hair, brown hair, blue eyes ...more
Vintage Silhouette novels published in 1985 and 1987 compiled together under compilation copyright by Kensington Publishing Corp.
The two stories have the feel of the past and as I remember the 1980’s well knew they were true to the times and to that writing style. If you are looking for two books in one to read that will take you back to evil doers doing their best to make money without conscience, enjoy a second chance romance, like the thwarting of bad guys, and prefer ...more
Renegade Son was an entertaining and quick read. Danielle Summers was standing up for what she wanted, but believed her ranch was being sabotaged. She is not sure who to trust. There are many things happening with Danielle and you go through the experiences with her.
Midnight Sun was enjoyable, but I preferred the other story. Ashley Stephens ends up home and running into an ex-boyfriend from a feuding family. While this held my atten ...more
Renegade Sun & Midnight Sun, these are two stories in this new Lisa Jackson book. Both have been released in the past, but it is great to get two in one now. Lisa has a real gift with romantic suspense and thrillers. Distrust is no exception. Renegade is an enemies to lovers romance. Single mother Danielle, is fighting to keep her ranch afloat while feuding with her neighbor Caleb. Chase is a man who has been hired by Caleb to work a project on his ranch. Sparks are flyin ...more
Will they find the happiness that they all deserve?
A good read.
I was lucky enough to receive a copy from Netgalley & the publisher in exchange for my honest review. ...more
Read both. Preferred the first one. I like strong women, a s I am one. Lady ran her ranch alone, after drunk, cheating husband left . He has the nerve, to show up seven years later. To get to know his son. Not the real reason. Has a happy ending.
