Book one in the CARELESS WHISPERS series. This is a standalone spin-off of the INSIDE OUT series (soon to be a TV show) that follows Ella Ferguson, Sara McMillan’s best friend.
Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He’s tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn’t destroy her first.
“I was provided by Book Enthusiast Promotions with a free copy of this book so I could give an honest review.”
I’m too much affected by the story, now I finish it, and my emotions are still a tangled mess in me. Denial isn’t a romance genre book to read, it has mystery, thriller and much, so so much suspense into it. The first book of Careless Whispers series, it’s a spin-off of the Inside Out series, and talks about Ella’s Ferguson story. I honestly haven’t read the Inside Out series but Ella is in there as well and the readers who read the series already know what happened to her. Hopefully, isn’t that bad that I start with Careless Whispers series than the Inside Out. Will see about that!!!
Denial is an impressive fast page turning story, that fairly earns the title of one of the most suspenseful booktales I ever read until now. As the synopsis mentions, Ella’s story isn’t everything that you think it is. And trust someone isn’t always accompanied with the truth they tell you. Denial is a long roler coaster of action scenes, tunged emotions, identity research and edgy erotic moments, that kept popping up unstoppable, their only mission is you never let the book down until you finish it. Well my friend, mission accomplished!!!
“Wait, what’s my name?”
Ella, who’s last name stays unknown all the way the end of book one, woke up in a hospital with an concussion and a lost memory to complite her weird situation. The only stable thing she had, was a man who was there when she woke up and she felt familiar with, Keyden Wilkens. Dark, handsome, with beautiful blue eyes, Keyden was her salvage after she was mugged and beated in the head, but somehow everything he did, seems to include high motivations and too many secrets.
” I have a sense of a wolf who doesn’t bother with sheep’s clothing, with his sights set on me.”
It’s a very weird connection, what they have between them. Keyden ensured her that he will be with her all the way, that he will protect her with his life but he seems to have an unspoken knowledge about her past. Ella too has an unexplained understanding for Keyden’s reactions and acts, she wants to trust him no matter what the facts seems to be, but that electricity in the air when they are together don’t help her much. He’s possessing her and she let him to be, freely.
” Those men chasing you…were skilled, experienced criminal, and they were after you. “
Ella’s amnesia doesn’t help her find out who she is. When she is emotionally troubled or stressed, flashbacks came to light, unfolding pieces of her life which aren’t pleasant. Her been kept like a prisoner by an unknown man, her might killing this man, her with her parents, her with her best friend Sara, scenes which helped her connect the dots and understand who she was but not why these men were after her. Until, a flashback of hers opened Pandora’s box…
“Who are you to me, Keyden? Who am I?”
I want to share so many things about this first book of Careless Whispers series!! I do!!! Lisa Renee Jones is a mighty talented writer in Mystery, Thriller, Erotic novels my friends. Too many other readers/reviewers confirms it and now I’m one of them. She combines dark backgrounds, danger characters, BDSM scenes and mystery into a story, so easily and creates a captivating masterpiece. Her writting is fluent, fast paced, with intelligent twists and turns, that consuming you, not let you give up reading. Loved so much the witty dialogs and the vehement passion Ella and Keyden had into the story. The unexplained affective possesseveness Keyden has for Ella and, at the same time, her need to be possessed from him, to own him, is the key to open the door of Ella’s memory…
Until then, grab Denial and start to read it or grab Inside Out series and enjoy the riveting story of Chris and Sara, as so many reviewers are talking about it. I soon will! Wish you an exciting reading…
