The heroine is Faith Winters. She is an artist who also runs her families winery. Her father left the winery to her mother with the stipulation that Faith gets it upon her death. Her mother died 2 months earlier without a will leaving the winery in limbo. Her mother had not been paying any of the bills further complicating things. The money is not in the winery's bank account and because there was no will, Faith has no access to her mothers money.
The hero is Nick "Tiger" Rogers. He is an attorney and earned his nickname. His father died the previous month. Nick's father had been writing checks to Faith's mother for large sums of money. Nick is investigating his father's death and the connection to Faith's mother even though Nick and his father did not have a relationship.
Nick is your typical male with a one-night no strings approach to women and sex. Faith has the same attitude but hers is because of a previous relationship gone bad....although we don't know what happened. Faith has all that behind a brick wall she throws up when she get nervous or difficult questions are asked.
Nick is investigating his father's death. It was declared a heart attack but Nick thinks it was murder. And that Faith's mother was murdered as well. Who is the murderer? Is it Faith? But then there is this crazy chemistry between Nick and Faith. Both Faith and Nick have so many secrets they are keeping from each other. When exposed, will these secrets destroy them and what they are building? What is going on with her agent and why is her ex trying to reach her after a couple of years. What happened between Faith's father and his twin brother to cause an estrangement and why is the uncle showing up unexpectedly? Why is the bank holding up the probating of Faith's mothers estate? What are the end games by all? Well, you just have to read to get answers.
An attorney with the nickname of “Tiger”, Nick Rogers is not a man to make an enemy of. He earned the appellation for being known to rip your throat out if you were unwise enough to cross him or his clients. And this tiger is now on the hunt, targeting a woman he suspects guilty of more than one crime. He has researched everything he could about her but nothing he learned prepared him for the presence of the woman. Their chemistry is high voltage and instantaneous but that won’t deter him from unraveling her myriad secrets. The lust complication he can handle, the challenge she becomes he’ll take on.
Running the family winery was never Faith Winter’s aspiration, she’s an artist out of her element, but she loved her father and will honor his wishes. Circumstances have placed the winery at risk and just as she needed assistance one night an intriguing attorney crossed her path. This man elicited surprising desires that have no place in her life. He’s a sexy, sinful, unwanted distraction, his dominance and arrogance a dangerous combination, and instinct makes her wonder if he’s friend or foe.
I know when I read a book by this author that I’m going to be drawn in by her seductive writing, when the protagonists meet I’m immediately enthralled by their reactions to each other and my attention is captured and kept from that moment on: “…when her pale green eyes meet mine, any questions I have about this woman and the many I suspect she now has of me, are muted by an unexpected, potentially problematic, palpable electric charge between us…” But this book is not just a romance, it’s romantic suspense, so there are many secrets and betrayals to traverse, the characters intricately layered and things are not always as they seem. There’s much angst and passion that flows off the pages and this reader is dying to know how it all will end. Is she guilty or innocent? Will Nick’s truths when they become known destroy any chances they might have?
This book is appropriately titled, the interactions between the protagonists are definitely provocative; we are given both points of view which always enhances a read. The ending is a cliff-hanger that though relatively mild for this author was a good breaking point. This book ended at 85% on a kindle followed by a bonus, Rebecca’s Forgotten Journals, a novella showing us an additional glimpse into the life of a memorable character from the Inside Out series.

In true Lisa fashion this book will leave you reeling and begging for more. Its one of those where you just have an intense need to KNOW how its going to play out. Nick, the Tiger..... Oh. My. Dang! I wanted to hug him and punch him at the same time. But Faith isn't much better either. I love her I really do. But this girl is hiding some serious stuff. I want to know what it is. Shes just as big of a mystery as Nick. They are perfect together. But theres so many lies and they are stacking up by the minute.
Will they make it? Will someone end up dead in this madness? I have to KNOW! Lisa, pleaseeee out me out of my misery soon. Cause I love these two and I want more. All the feelings you get while reading this are amazing and keep you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages as fast as possible. LOVED IT HARD!!
