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.
“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.
Faith has been running her families vineyard for the past two years following the death of her father, Putting aside her own dreams as a budding artist and dealing with a mother she can barely tolerate in order to fulfill her father's dying wish. at her mother's unexpected death, Faith uncovers a conundrum concerning the finances of the vineyard and her mother's involvement. Fully aware of her mother's indiscretions and promiscuous lifestyle, Faith is trying to survive the onslaught of debt collectors awaiting her settlement. Unfortunately, each move forward incurs additional puzzles that need to be deciphered. A constant battle for a life she didn't want while the opportunity for her to pursue her passion and talent for art makes itself available. I loved the inclusion of Chris and Sara from the Inside Out Series within the narrative and the link to both Faith and Nick in different ways.
As well as the current problems Faith is experiencing with regards to her financial situations and the pursuit of her own dreams she is still battling the demons from the past. Weighed down with regret over aspects of her past and the link to her ex, Macom, Faith holds her secrets close adding to the sense of foreboding within the plot. What is she hiding and how will it affect the outcome of the relationship with Nick??
Nick seeks Faith out with an agenda of his own following his father's recent death and his connection to Faith's mother. Determined to uncover the truth of his father's death as well as significant payments to Faiths mother, not expecting to feel the depth of emotion he does at their encounters. Mystery upon mystery is woven together within the plot adding tension and doubt as to what is real and what is lies.
The chemistry between Nick and Faith is undeniable and intrinsic, what starts out as a quick fling soon escalates to something neither were expecting. Unfortunately, Nick is still hiding his true motives from Faith, torn between believing her guilty or opening himself to the possibility of her innocence. Nick and Faith are compatible on every level, bringing out the best in one another while building something that could be more than they could have dreamed of. However, relationships require trust and without that, they don't have the foundation on which to build a lasting relationship.
There are so many questions left unanswered - What is Faith hiding from her past? Will Nick divulge his ownership of the club? What is the role of both Faith's ex and her uncle within the plot? How will Faith react to Nick's deception? Were Faith's mother and Nick's father murdered?
As if that wasn't enough to keep you on the edge of your seat and chewing your nails while waiting for answers in Shameless, Lisa unleashes another twist at the end of Provocative that will make you question everything you have already learned!!!! DAMMIT I NEED ANSWERS!!!!!
