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.
Desperate to pay for law school, Skye tries her hand at auction hunting with her friend Ella, only to find a poker chip and a note leading to an offsite locker. The next thing she knows, Jason “Red Bull” Wise—a famous, millionaire poker player—is at her door, accusing her of blackmail. Innocent, she swears he’s wrong. He rolls the dice and believes her, impulsively inviting her along to Las Vegas. And remarkably, cautious Skye takes a risk, finding herself seduced by this dangerously alluring man, on his private jet, and finally living life to the fullest. But there is more than passion waiting for Skye and Jason in Vegas when blackmail takes a deadly turn.

Behind closed doors is a stand alone novel, full of mystery, danger and romantic suspense. A kind of story, which the aura of Las Vega’s fortune and it’s lagendary underworld, overflows the most part of the book, keeping interest high and perky. Our heroine, Skye, is a young woman desperate to be in a law school and tries to earn some fast money by taking place in an action hunting, obeying the advise her newest friend Ella gave her. Buying the last unit for the day, Skye found’s herself infront of a mystery key and a note, which leads her to a huge amount poker chip, a blackmail note and, further more, into a chase of who’s the blackmailer.
” I learned the hard way that once you break your rules, you end up in trouble” Skye
When Skye took part on that action, she broke many of her rules, even if she didn’t knew it at that time. First and most, she never wanted to be in a trouble anymore in her life, she needed safety and managed to keep it that way so far, successfully. Second, give up her plan wasn’t an option. It was important for her, to do things as she planned it, because it was the only way to have the control she so desperately needed. Third, don’t look again for a bad boy. Never ever, because, well, bad boys are… uncontrollable, the epitome of troubleness, which means no control on her account, which furthermore means, if and when you get to know someone like Jason Wise aka Red Bull aka Trouble, run for your life.
“Hi, Mr Rich and Sexy in Denim. Are you here to kill me and take the poker chip?” Skye
Jason Wise, a famous poker player who wins millions because of his skill to read, easily, every player’s move on the poker table, without even blinking, is been blackmailed by an unknown enemy. Paying a private investigator, he is at Skyes front door, asking her questions about the owner of the unit she bought. His gut told him that Skye was the only one who can help him sort out of who is involve behide the blackmail notes but he doesn’t trust her, just like Skye doesn’t trust him either. After they agreed to fly together for the weekend in Las Vegas, the get to know and trust each other course took a no end turn, leading them into a circle of suspicions, new threats and possible ememies.
“I have a thing for drinking Red Bull when I play, and – when I see something I want, I’m a bull charging for my prize.” Jason
The chemistry between the two leaps off the pages, invading pleasantly my mind and sences. The elevators are hot spots into the story, just like any spot is near to Jason’s body. The man carries all the assets a woman desperate craves, if you ask me! Gorgeous, a sexy predator, he can be inside any womans mind and fulfil their secret thoughts in a heartbeat. He’s a man who could make them feel safe beside him, because of his strong self confidence and personal status, owning any place he is getting into. Jason is the safety net for Skye’s fears even if she didn’t wanted to believe it at first. As for Skye, she is an outsider of what Jason calls his world, a person who can see him and through him, and not the famous, millioner poker player he acts he is.
“When we get naked, and we will, you will know it’s all about you, and nothing else.” ~Jason
Having not so many steamy sex scenes this story, the passionate promises were all over the place. Sigh… These two are darn lovable!! However, Behind Closed Doors was a really hide and seek story, complicated by the many characters were involved, putting the reader into a detective mode, working together with Skye’s gut, to found out who the real blackmailer is, of all people. A fascinated, intregued chase until the finish line and a hot promise for more before the story ends…
What is captivating at Lisa’s stories? One is the witty dialogs between the chatacters. They both are charming and intelligent, with tender but tormented hearts, two people I can connect easily with. An other part is, how Lisa narrate them. Any story is supplemented with lots of other characters, many of them are involve at any level in the story’s development but they also have their own personal stories in other book of hers. I believe, this approach creates a more believable enviroment for the plots to excists and continue, keeping the reader’s interests always on the adges. Which is the most interesting part, keeping the story on the edges even in the end of it.
Yes, I loved and will love any Lisa’s book I’m going to read in the future, because all the above reasons. I believe you’ll also have the same feeling after you, for once, live the experience by yourselves. Sexy hot or deadly mysterious, grab whatever floats your boat and start reading.
