Review: Provocative by Lisa Renee Jones
Synopsis for Provocative
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 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.
Whoa! I was blown away after I was done reading Provocative. It was the perfect combination of mystery and sexual tension and it all started right off the bat. I could not put this book down. First, I was excited over the mystery of the story, then I was excited over the relationship that was quickly growing between Faith and Nick.
Nick was a man that exuded confidence. I fell in love with him instantly. He was a smart, sexy, and straight-to-the-point man. That’s my favorite kind of character. I also had some trepidation with him, though. He was definitely up to something when it came to Faith and I was eager to find out what. Faith had plenty of secrets herself, as well. Faith exuded her own quiet confidence and when she and Nick came together, it was explosive! The love scenes were beautifully intense.
And while Nick and Faith united pretty quickly, it felt natural. Usually I don’t like when a romance happens too fast, but Lisa Renee Jones wrote the events of the story so that it flowed perfectly.
I’m really excited for the next book in this series. Nick and Faith love and trust each other so I’m really hoping when secrets start coming out it doesn’t destroy them. Provocative is definitely worth the read if you enjoy suspenseful romance.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book in any way.
