Jax North. He's handsome, brutally so, and wealthy. Our first encounter is intense and sex is my escape. I go with it. I go with him and what a ride it is. And then, I say goodbye. Only you don't say goodbye to a man like Jax if he doesn't want you to. I've challenged him without meaning to. He wants me. I don't want to want him, and yet, I crave him. And he tears me down, my resistance, my walls. But those walls protect me. They seal my secrets inside. And I forget that being alone is safe. 

Before long, my secrets begin to be revealed, and I trust him so deeply that I think maybe he can handle them. Maybe I dare to believe that alone isn't better.

Until I discover that Jax was never an accident.

He has secrets. 

He knew my secret. He came for me.

One Man is the first book in the dangerously sexy Naked Trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.

 

 

 

 

One Man (Naked Trilogy, #1)

He holds me fast and pulls me to him, our legs colliding, the hard lines of his body hugging mine. My gaze jerks to his, the night darkening his blue eyes, the streetlight catching flecks of amber in his intense stare. “Run with me, not away from me.”

“I don’t even know you.”

“Then change that. I’m not asking you to marry me. I’m asking you to get to know me the way I want to know you.” Somehow, this statement manages to be the perfect mix of alpha male and vulnerability. “Come with me.”

“Where?” I whisper, and I can feel my body swaying toward his.

His hand slides under my hair, a warm strong hand, his thumb stretching to my jaw, tilting my face to his. His blue eyes still catching amber gold in the streetlights, a dominance in their depths that shouldn’t arouse me, but there’s no fighting my reaction to this man, or to who I am deep down inside. And I am the woman who is drawn to a man like Jax. Perhaps to a man too like York.

“I promised you a castle,” he says, “but I’ll settle for anywhere where I can do this.” His mouth closes down on mine, his tongue pressing past my lips, a quick tease that I still manage to feel in every part of me. Goosebumps lift on my skin and his mouth lingers above mine, a hot breath promising more before he strokes deep. And then, he’s kissing me, a wicked, passionate kiss that is pure heat, greedy even, fierce. Alluring. Passionate. Addictive. And then gone, his mouth is gone, and I’m panting as he says, “Say yes and I’ll take you anywhere you want to go.”

Every warning that York stirred in me earlier fades away with the taste of this man on my lips, every warning is immediately reasoned away. This is one night and then Jax is gone. This is an escape. Death and grief allow me permission to need this. That damn journal gives me permission to need him. I’m going to do this.

“I want off this street corner,” I say. “I want to leave. I want to leave with you.”

His eyes warm, approval and satisfaction in their depths that somehow isn’t arrogant. He laces his fingers with mine and walks backward, guiding me to the door of the SUV. And then he does something unexpected. He steps aside and motions me toward the back doors, a silent invitation to enter or walk away, to make my own decision. I climb inside, letting the soft leather absorb my body, a willing victim, as he’d wanted.

Rosa's rating: 5 iScream Cones!

"The real me is invisible to everyone but him. But why have I accepted that status in my life? Where has that gotten me?"

Lisa Renee Jones is a puppet master and she loves to pull my strings. She purposely makes me suspicious of characters, leading me to believe or assume certain things, knowing damn well she's still gonna surprise me in the end. I say this after only reading the first book and having no idea 'whodunnit', but I didn't just fall off the turnip truck, I did that much earlier and know better now. I know that she's gonna keep me riding on the edge, biting my nails, guessing and worrying the whole way...and loving every minute of the journey.

I really enjoy a mystery and having the secrets revealed one at a time really gets my heart pumping. And if that's not enough, the passion emanating from the characters is enough to have me participating in an ice bucket challenge. Just being inside their heads when they look at each other, knowing what they see and what they are thinking and what they want to do....🔥

And did I mention how much I love it when characters from her other books make an appearance? If you are a fan, I'm sure you know who I'm talking about, right? You won't be disappointed.

The author took me on a whirlwind adventure showing me people and places and situations that had my head exploding with possibilities. I'm so intrigued and smitten, Jax has already won me over, secrets and all. He can keep them if he'll keep her...sigh. I cannot wait to get my hands on One Woman which is the next book in the Naked Trilogy. Maybe by then I'll have time to read all those delicious naked scenes again, a time or twenty. The line forms here...
