The sexy, breathtaking mystery continues in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones's stunning second novel in the suspenseful Careless Whispers series--where shocking revelations will reveal themselves and nothing, and no one, will ever be the same.

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she's known about Kayden Wilkens--the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway. But was he truly a stranger--or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, whose searing novels generate "enough heat . . . to start a fire" (RT Book Reviews), dares you to fall in love with her irresistibly surprising and sexy new series

This series is getting better and better with each chapter. I love all of the mystery and intrigue with this story. Although I am desperate to know what is coming and what is really in Ella's past, I like that it is slowly unfolding and not being rushed. 

In the first book it ends on a cliff hanger and I could not wait to find out what happened after that shower scene. This second book did not disappoint and it really made me like these characters more. They are both so strong and they really work well together. 

I don't want to give a lot away, but there were a lot of resolved issues and at the same time there are still so many unresolved issues. This is the reason I love this series. The mystery is still going and with each tiny mystery solved and new one emerged and I enjoy that. 

This series is a MUST read and is a series, book one is a necessity to read first.

Logan Bennett knows his priorities. He is loyal to his family and his company. He has no time for love, and no desire for it. Not after a disastrous engagement left him brokenhearted. When Nadine enters his life, she turns everything upside down.

She’s sexy, funny, and utterly captivating. She’s also more stubborn than anyone he’s met…including himself.

Nadine Hawthorne is finally pursuing her dream: opening her own clothing shop. After working so hard to get here, she needs to concentrate on her new business, and can’t afford distractions. Not even if they come in the form of Logan Bennett. He’s handsome, charming, and doesn’t take no for an answer. After bitter disappointments, Nadine doesn’t believe in love. But being around Logan is addicting. It doesn’t help that Logan’s family is scheming to bring them together at every turn.

Their attraction is sizzling, their connection undeniable. Slowly, Logan wins her over. What starts out as a fling, soon spirals into much more than they are prepared for.

When a mistake threatens to tear them apart, will they have the strength to hold on to each other?

5 STARS

Another great love story from his author. I loved all of the Bennett family from the first book and this book really cemented my love of them, especially the Bennet men. They are a sexy bunch and I can't wait for them to get their stories. I am really excited and about the girls stories and hope they are coming soon. 

One of the things that I really enjoy about this series and that they are light hearted, super sexy and just a tiny bit of heavy involved. Everyone has a past and something that haunts them, but the author does an amazing job of telling their story so that they can tame the demons of the past. 

I enjoyed getting more of Logan and that he lived up to everything I though he would. I also like that he never denied his feelings and never wasted time during this story. He and Nadine starts their relationship the right way and by not putting the pressure on it grew naturally. I enjoyed how they complimented each other and that they seemed to really enjoy the other. 

This is a great read if you are a fan of that light hearted HEA with some super sexy thrown in.

Blog Tour ... Backfire by Keri Lake

Title: Backfire
Series: A Vigilantes Novel
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance - Standalone
Published: June 9, 2016
Cover Design: Hang Le
Image Credit: Eric Battershell Photography
Cover Model: Johnny Kane 

No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.

A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.

They failed. I survived.

Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.

Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.

Then she drifts into my life.

Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.

Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.

Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.

For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.



"Backfire is dark, gritty, and unapologetic. You'll be reading it with your heart in your throat and your stomach twisted up in knots. It's violent, a touch depraved, darkly erotic, action packed and absolutely, positively unputdownable." -Dirty Girl Romance Blog
"It's brilliant. It's rewarding and it is a mind screw done perfectly. You will hear your heart break for what Jase and Lucy go through. You will love, hate and shatter." -Kathy Coopmans, USA Today Bestselling Author
"So dark and disturbing you read with one eye open, unable to look away -riveted by what's playing out before your very eyes as Keri Lake takes you on a twisted rollercoaster flying in different directions at great speed." -Totally Booked Blog


"Once again Keri Lake has given us a wonderfully engaging story which sucks you into a whole other world, making you feel everything and revel in the brutal underworld that she has created. It's a book you experience,not just read, and if you're in the mood for this sort of story, it's going to blow you away with its dark intensity." -Escapist Book Blog


5 STARS

This was a great addition to this series, the author does a really great job of making you feel like you are these characters. I have really connected with the characters. 

I loved the way these characters seemed to compliment each other really well. They seemed to be perfect to each other and I loved that their story goes way back. That they each though of each other over the years. 

This book has quite a bit of action, both violent and sexy. The gory bits are pretty dang graphic, but I think they really make this story. Every intense scene I was devouring each page. The sexy bits are really great too and intense, but I love that they didn't overpower the storyline. 

I don't want to keep rambling and possibly give something away, so I will just say that this is MUST READ. It also is a true standalone and you will not be lost while reading this if you haven't read Ricochet. But I do recommend reading Ricochet too. 

**I received and ARC for an honest review.**









Keri Lake is a married mother of two living in Michigan. By day, she tries to make use of the degrees she’s earned in science. By night, she writes dark contemporary and paranormal romance. Though novels tend to be her focus, she also writes short stories and flash fiction on the many occasions when distraction sucks her in to the Land of Shiny Things. 


She loves hearing from readers …
