“I’ll be the killer. You be the artist. And maybe you’ll tame the beast along the way. But I wouldn’t count on it.”

I have been eagerly anticipating Shameless, after all, who wouldn’t be after the ending of Provocative. This duet has been all about the action from the very start and in true Lisa Renee Jones fashion she starts as she means to go on…action…suspense…intrigue…action…suspense…intrigue. This was a rollercoaster of a ride not only with the sizzling chemistry between Nick and Faith, but also with the undercurrent of suspense, was it murder and also, what happens when secrets are finally revealed? From first to last page, it just keeps coming and even after the end, I’m still thinking about them and that is always a good thing.

“Murder brought me here. Faith kept me here.”

Nick and Faith were a couple who fell quick and who fell hard. Their relationship based on not only their scorching hot physical attraction to one and other or their explosive chemistry between the sheets but their inherent belief that they can trust one and other. Nick and Faith both have their secrets, both feel the need to unload, but the time is never right. The trouble being though, when trust is such an important bond between them, what happens when its broken? Protection is one thing, but lies through omission are still lies.

“But hours later as I lay in bed, holding Faith close, I am not reveling in the mountain we’ve climbed today. I’m too busy looking for a way to battle the sea of sharks that are my lies.”

Lisa Renee Jones paced this book perfectly, it was fast paced which totally went with the vibe of romantic suspense. Little clues and red herrings were there if you read between the lines, but the truth was never revealed until the end. So many what if’s, so many different plots running through my head and yet I was still sideswiped. The villain of this story was who I thought during this book but did they work alone?

“Betrayal doesn’t come from your enemies.”

This book was a journey for both Nick and Faith, both emotionally and physically. Their beginning was not expected, their journey fraught with obstacles, but it is this that makes them stronger. Of course you have the angst, that was to be expected, but I really did feel the connection between these two despite their rapid development into a relationship. Sometimes you just know, your heart knows and these two just felt right from the very beginning. Nick was always an individual, he was the lawyer, “The Tiger,” but in this book he becomes Nick and Faith, an “us,” and for me that was the biggest journey of all.

“I can be naked and fuck a million women and they wouldn’t have anything but my cock, Faith. But you Faith, are the one who is one hell of a drug.”

I loved this book, it was exactly what I expected and more, it more than delivered, and my only criticism is that I felt that the ending was rushed, at least it read that way. But, none the less, all the I’s were dotted and the t’s were crossed, I got my answers and they got theirs. Sometimes it is worth that leap of faith.

“Sweetheart, you have pieces of me no one was supposed to ever have, and the many ways you could shatter them should have me running for the hills. But all I want to do is kiss you again. Hold you. Watch you paint.”
