Provocative (White Lies Book One) by Lisa Renee Jones Release Date: April 18th Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book one in the sexy and intense new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

Provocative is FULL-SIZED novel and boy was I happy about that. This is Book one in the White Lies Duet series.
This is a sexy, seductive, passionate, mysterious and suspenseful romance novel that will take you places you never thought you would go. There is secrets, lies, seduction, and murder all that takes place in this book.
Nick made eye contact with Faith and it was immediate. Their attraction, their passion, their chemistry. Nick immediately started pursing Faith. Their meeting wasn’t an accident—he wanted to meet her because he has ulterior motives and he plans to prove Faith killed his father and quite possibly her own mother but when he actually meets her, he finds she is not quite what he has painted in his own head. She is sweet, she is sassy and she is innocent sounding/looking. Nick finds that he intrigued and aroused completely by Faith and starts to pursue her for a totally different reason than when he arrived at this charity event.
Faith and Nick dance around their feelings but by the middle of the book, they express their feelings by using sex. Also we see Nick not letting go of Faith so he goes digging into her past and who she is. Its like they are one way with each other , like they wear masks with each other , too afraid to let them truly show how they feel or who they really are. As we get into the home stretch of the book, we learn that Faiths mother had skeletons in her closet, things Faith doesn’t know and Nick is torn whether or not to tell her. Then we see Nick and Faith reaching a point about making a decision to make what they have more of a permanent relationship instead of a wham, bam, thank you type. Nick is on enigma – on one hand he tries to justify everything he has done up to this point because he needed the truth yet on another hand, he is afraid of what will happen if Faith finds out and believe you and me, Faith will find out. Tensions are building, what is going to happen between this steamy and sexy couple? Will Nick admit he has truly fallen hard for this sweet and beautiful woman? Will Faith finally be proven innocent in Nick’s eyes or will he end up completely burning her?
This book ends on an epic cliffhanger and I am looking forward to the conclusion. I cannot wait to see what happens between Faith and Nick. They worked as a couple and the suspense and mystery of who killed Nick’s dad is driving me insane. What a fantastic New Adult Romance for anyone looking for a great new read.
My rating: 4.8 stars ****
