“Murder brought us together. Lies could tear us apart.”
I have had an amazing reading week this week and Lisa Renee Jones has just added another one to the pile and this is definitely my favourite of hers to date. Provocative is a romantic suspense with a whole heap of sexual tension that keeps those pages turning a mile minute. This was a book that kept my attention from the very start and held me rapt until the very end. Now I am desperate for Shameless and a few months to wait will feel like forever.
“And just like that, Nick has proven I was right about him from the beginning. He is dark lust. He is all-consuming. He is an escape I crave. Maybe he’s even an obsession as he’d called me. But more so, he is dangerous. I sense it. I feel it like I feel this man in every part of me inside and out. But then, so am I.”
Faith is the owner of a winery, inherited from her parents, but at heart she is an up and coming artist. Faith bleeds art and it pains her that she has had to put her career on hold while she rescues the family business her father loved so much. The winery though is thwart with problems and none more so than money, with her mother’s will in probate she is stuck between a rock and a hard place and with creditors banging down the door she is adamant to do the impossible.
“Because you touching me still feels better than you not touching me…”
Nick is a lawyer and one that is hugely successful and highly feared, he didn’t earn the nickname “Tiger” for nothing and more than lives up to his reputation. Nick has done his homework on Faith, he knows her inside out on paper but what he wasn’t prepared for was the connection they shared in the flesh. From the moment these two meet the pages crackle, the tension sizzles and the chemistry only flames. But this was not on Nick’s agenda. But what is Nick’s agenda?
“That’s where we’re differing here, Faith. I’m thinking about every moment I have with you and you’re thinking about goodbye.”
A relationship born from secrets and omissions is definitely going to have its problems and these two are guilty of this on both sides, but it is this that ramps up the suspense and intrigue as Lisa Renee Jones slowly lets slip little snippets of what each of these two are hiding. I loved how the reader is just as ignorant of the truth as the characters, and as these two are enlightened the reader is too. Each fact was safely stored and continually churning around in my brain as I try and piece together the truth just as quickly as Nick our intrepid lawyer. But, what is fact and fiction? What are truths and lies? And basically, what the hell is going on?
“…maybe even from that very first provocative moment when I first made eye contact with Faith, my original agenda has changed. I stopped looking for ways to prove her guilt, and started looking for ways to prove her innocence. That might seem as if it works for her, but the truth is, it doesn’t. Because when I want to believe in someone and they let me down, they betray me, my wrath is vicious.”
The chemistry between Nick and Faith is off the charts. Neither character wanting a relationship and yet both are constantly fighting the inevitable and it is this push and pull that really cemented these two as a couple I wanted to see make it. The banter and dialogue between these two is infectious and really brought these characters to life. It is this that gives them that human touch and gives the reader that all important character connection.
“Do you know why I painted that, Tiger? Because I was trying to figure out why I want to trust you but can’t.”
There is still a lot to come for these two and I am still battling my brain trying to fathom how and where Lisa Renee Jones is going to take their story. The suspense and intrigue was spot on and I love the fact that even having finished this book a few days ago, my grey matter is still churning away. I am desperate for Shameless which releases on July 11th, I cannot wait to see what is in store for these two.
Provocative wasn't just addictive, it was consuming, and utterly impossible to put down. From start to finish, I was so engrossed in Faith and Nick, and the intricate way their lives were intertwined - even before they met for the first time. Intriguing. Dark. Hopeful. Enticing.
Written in dual point of view, with chapters from both Faith's and Nick's perspective, the story moved forward at a very nice pace, and the mystery caused by the lies and omissions took second place only to the red-hot romance and utter abandon the characters felt when they were together.
Faith Winters is owner of a winery that she inherited, she walked away from a budding art career to keep her father’s dream alive. Yes... We get some Chris and Sara in this story... I was grinning ear to ear at these scenes. You will love the banter, heat and lies between each of them.
Top international reviews
Nick 'Tiger' Rogers is ruthless is the court room feared by his peers and yet with Faith he is kind, caring and understanding. They are both flawed characters and this showed through the story.
This book will take you on many journeys, some emotional scenes, some hot and very sexy scenes and just an amazing mystery intertwined within.
I totally go all of the feels from reading this book and m waiting with baited breath for the conclusion.
Faith is trying to keep the winery going after the death of her father and now her mother. In debt, a struggling artist with the bank and debit collecters chasing her.
One look and they are in lust, but will their secrets destroy what they have.
And you know why I totally fell in love with this book... It's full of mystery, heat, lust and sweet unwanted feelings.
“I want you, Faith,” he repeats. His thumbs stroke my nipples, his cheek pressing to mine, “Like I don’t remember ever wanting in my life.”
