Review : Surrender (Careless Whispers #3) by Lisa Renee Jones



surrender-newNew York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones returns with the third book in the sexy, suspenseful Careless Whispers series.

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers. But even though he has become her anchor–helping her recover from amnesia after finding her unconscious in an alley, and allowing her into his secret world–all is not what it seems. Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella’s past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn’t begin in that dark alley…it could easily end there.



 My Review

Rating : 4 out of 5 Stars

Surrender is the final installment in the « Careless Whispers » series, a spin-off of the « Inside Out » series. Lisa Renee Jones weaves once again layers upon layers of mystery in this fast paced and riveting romantic suspense that picks up where Demand left off.

Ella’s memories are slowly returning. As the flashbacks become clearer, she feels that her present is closely connected to her past. She knows there is much more about her than what she has pieced together, though. The dark spots seem to revolve around the most traumatic events. She is afraid of the consequences of some revelations. They could harm Kayden or hurt his entire operation.

“Everything in his life is danger, questions, problems. Closing the door to my questions, remembering everything, is something that isn’t just for me. It’s for him.”

Kayden and Ella’s relationship is based on trust and love. Their connection is intense, the sexy scenes were scorching hot and well-written. Kayden never hesitates to do what is necessary to protect Ella. He is a man who knows how to get what he wants! This hero is an irresistible combination of tenderness, danger and power. Kayden and Ella both know the enemies are lurking in the shadows. Ella stills has to tell the good guys from the bad guys. She is convinced the bad guys will come for her, she is definitely a target. I loved that she is no damsel in distress, she is skilled and trained to defend herself, but she is still handicapped by her amnesia.

This story had a general atmosphere of deceit, mystery and secrets that I enjoyed. The final twist was brilliant, I hadn’t seen it coming. The writing style of Ms. Jones is utterly addictive. I never can get enough of her fast-paced, riveting stories. This series has come to a conclusion, but I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next.
