New Adult/ Romance

Publisher: Julie Patra Publishing
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.
At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?
This book was outstanding. Lisa Renee Jones has created another spectacular novel. This book left me guessing with each turn of the page. Each situation gives you more to think about, and more to question, and more you are desperate to know! I found myself flipping pages, reading until late in the night, just hoping to find out what happens next.
Don’t let the rich alpha male, and the girl with a troubled past make you think that this novel is anything like any other erotic, romance or other new adult book you’ve read. It’s not, it’s different, and you need to pick it up.
Amy is a wonderfully well written character, with a great story, and Liam, wow, Liam is something else. I’d give this 5 stars, and then give it 5 starts again. The sex is steamy, the story line is interesting, twists and turns, and keeps you on edge until the final page. This novel is outstanding. I am already awaiting another book. Lisa Renee Jones knows how to write romance, and she shows us she knows how to write suspense as well. The two melt beautifully into each other to create a perfect novel.
Even if you’re one of those people, like me, who’s not into the erotic romances, check this one out. Jones has got something on the Fifty Shades and Crossfires, this book gives you equally good sex scenes but mixed with outstanding writing and a whole new mystery and suspense element. I promise this won’t disappoint, this is one erotic novel that would make an outstanding movie, because its so well written and interesting I couldn’t put it down! 🙂 I had the characters in my head long after I finished reading it, and I have no complaints! 🙂
**I got an ARC from NetGalley for honest review!
