Former thief turned all-star realtor Serena Metcalf is at the top of her game. She’s about to land her biggest client to date when her life is turned upside-down as her past comes back to haunt her. Serena has no one to turn to except the man that broke her heart, Milo Baxter.

When Serena’s sister is abducted she and Milo are given a very short amount of time to commit the heist of a lifetime. The Last Heist is a swift moving romantic suspense. Milo and Serena have a sexy attraction. Their connection is completely alive and the suspense is great in the beginning. For some reason it wasn’t able to hold my attention throughout the entire book. Perhaps because of their situation and the things they were being asked to do were preposterous. I wanted to like this so bad but it was just a little too obvious who the culprit would turn out to be.

Possible Spoilers…You should read Savage Hunger before Savage Burn to enjoy properly.






Rick and Candace are back and ready for more drama in Savage Burn.  I can’t get enough of this couple. I’m obsessed with the palpable tension between them. Rick and Candace set every scene on FIRE! The stakes have only gotten higher for the couple in Savage Burn. Danger is lurking around every corner. It seems like Rick and Candace’s enemies has only multiplied.

Savage Burn is full of twists. You may think you know what is going to happen, but Lisa Renee Jones is great at throwing the reader curve balls.  I love being surprised and the Savage series has brought many.  This is my first series from the author therefore I didn’t know any of the men from Walker Security, but I have now picked up their books because I adore them. The banter between them brings the right amount of light moments in Savage Burn.

The sexual chemistry is still high between Rick and Candace, but the emotional quotient is a hundred times higher.  The couple has reunited, confessed their love and determination to get through their current woes but the fear remains high. Rick is afraid Candace will leave him if she learns everything about him and Candace is afraid Rick will leave her to protect her. Now, we all know fear only leads to bad decisions.

The second book in the Savage trilogy takes the reader on an emotional, suspense filled roller coaster. Rick and Candace are a special couple and I’m dying to know what happens to them.  The ending of Savage Burn is quite the cliffhanger. It’s one of those moments where you think “oh sh*t” when you realize it’s the last page and you’re going to have to wait for months for the final book.

Savage Burn is a MUST read! I love Rick and Candace and can’t wait to find out what will happen next!

Savage Hunger is a sexy second chance romance with and edge of suspense.  This was my first read from Lisa Renee Jones. I can’t believe I waited so long to try her books.  I fell in love with Rick and Candace’s intense sexual chemistry right away. They sucked me into their exciting romance from page one.

Rick and Candace have one of the sexiest meet cutes I’ve ever read. The hot drama begins quickly.  Rick and Candace once a couple on the road to marriage have now been apart for years. Rick broke Candace’s heart into a million pieces. Now he’s being forced back into her realm by an enemy who plans to use Candace against him. One thing that was refreshing is the fact that Rick is not shy about telling Candace what he wants. He is definitely an Alpha hero determined to get what he wants and right now he plans to take back what is his…Candace.

Candace isn’t quite so receptive to his dominant wishes, but the sexual tension is definitely reawakening her sex drive. Unfortunately, Candace is engaged to a soon-to-be presidential candidate. We quickly learn things are not what they seem between the engaged couple. Candace is being forced to be the dutiful fiancée and she can’t afford to let her ex mess up her plans to get herself out of this situation.

Savage Hunger is an appropriate title for this book because you can absolutely feel the hunger burning between them. I don’t want to give a lot away because I’m highly recommending you read Savage Hunger!  I’m addicted to Rick and Candace.  I generally shy away from trilogies until they are all released but I was tempted and now I’m dying to read the rest of the series.

Lisa Renee Jones gives the reader a sensual, suspenseful feast with Savage Hunger. If you love domineering a man determined protect the woman, he loves while winning her heart Savage Hunger is for you. Don’t miss out on this great read.

coz-en (kuz-uhn)
1. trick or deceive.
• obtain by deception.

She was named most appropriately.

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.

She has never failed.

A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.

Nothing is ever that easy.

Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.

The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.

But at what cost?



Who can you trust is one of the major themes in Bethany-Kris’ latest release, Cozen. Who can you trust with your heart and most importantly your life?

Cozen Taylor is the most famous thief in America. She’s looking to retire when she gets roped into one final job which turns out to be the largest and most dangerous of her career.

Sargon Makri is a hardened killer with no allegiances.  He is a lethal bodyguard who recently found himself protecting one of the deadliest criminals in the U.S. His life is monotonous until a sexy waitress upends his life.  He wants her…he wants her bad…it’s just too bad his boss wants her as well.

Cozen is a highly entertaining read.  I found it a fast, fun exciting romance.  I particularly enjoyed the thrilling intrigue.  The sparks between Cozen and Sargon are swift and scintillating.  I loved that Cozen is such a badass in her field of expertise. It was great that she never shrunk under the daunting circumstances of the heist. She was determined to never rely on Sargon to save her.  If you are looking for sinfully erotic sex, steamy romance and excellent storytelling plus one heck of a twist then Cozen is for you.
