Series-Tall, Dark and Deadly #1
Reviewed by Kay
Lauren Reynolds is a lawyer with the DA’s office and she’s working a huge profile case. Royce Walker is a former FBI agent turned security specialist who’s looking into threats made against her and her father. They have been attracted to each other for quite some time. One night at an event, Lauren decides she’s gonna act on her attraction to Royce and go to bed with him. Royce likes that idea a lot but hates keeping his involvement with her dad a secret.
I had high hopes for this one and was disappointed. I liked the characters and the whodunit part was good but the love scenes were so mediocre. Let me explain, when I read about this book it emphasized how HOT, HOT, HOT this book was. It was NOT, NOT, NOT. There was sex but it never worked for me. It was abbreviated and fairly bland. A book doesn’t have to be hot for me to read it but don’t advertise it as such.
This was my first read by Lisa Renee Jones and I am uncertain if I will read more by her. The suspense was good but not great and it wrapped up abruptly with believability questionable. For someone who likes their romantic suspense simple and a little less spicy, this book might be fantastic for you.
