Are you ready? 

From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones comes a brand new gripping and provocative novel that ties into her bestselling Careless Whispers and Inside Out series. You can enjoy this as a standalone, but fans of Careless Whispers and Inside Out will get an exciting glimpse of who Ella really is and some of the secrets she's been hiding from everyone she knows.

My Review

I only recently discovered Lisa Renee Jones with the release of the first book in the Careless Whispers series. With each new book I read, I understand more and more why she has such a large and devoted fan base.  This is storytelling done well.  The author has crafted a book that will immediately draw her readers into the world of professional poker and have them turning pages until a climatic ending.

This book is a fast paced, well written story that has great characters woven into a plot full of suspense, betrayal, romance and some steamy love scenes. I liked both the characters of Skye and Jason; they are complex, dimensional characters that are vulnerable and likeable. Jason is guarded, for good reason, and Skye is a strong, independent woman, whose past has caused her to build some walls. What also made this enjoyable was that the how the author wove in some of Ella's back story and gave us a glimpse of who she really is and where she comes from. 

This is a stand alone story, so if you haven't read any previous books in the Careless Whispers series it will not effect your enjoyment of this story. What you will find is that you want to go out and pick up other books written by this author.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence my opinion and the thoughts expressed are my own.
