Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lisa Renee Jones presents the first part of her heart-pounding thriller series of a woman's secrets - and a past that's about to come out of hiding....

As an FBI profiler, it's Lilah Love's job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface - the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head - Lilah's instincts tell her it's the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core. 

Thrust into a troubled past she's tried to shut the door on, Lilah's back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord's son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah's own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

Full of mystery and intrigue!

5 Crazy Ass Must Listen Stars!!!!!

Two people made this story. First, Lisa Renee Jones with her superb writing and storylines that get your mind spinning. And second, Grace Grant with her amazing narration.
LRJ continually writes stories that just draw me in. I'm not one to veer toward a murder mystery but when I saw that LRJ newest release was available via Romance Package, I snatched this audio treat right up and dove right in. All I had to see was "Lisa Renee Jones" and "new release" and I was all over it. Then imagine my delight when I saw Grace Grant was the narrator. She has quickly become a favorite of mine with her work on the Mount Trilogy and Savage Trilogy by Meghan March. She just has this was of drawing you in to the story, making you so damn comfortable, and having you ignore the outside world. She brings the characters to life and performs the narration in such a way that it feels like your tossed in that world. This was no different.
Lilah Love is wrapped up in some crazy stuff. So many questions. So many twists. None of my predictions have panned out so LRJ is keeping me on my toes.
I'm eager to get my hands on Murder Girl next. I just wish it was sooner than July. Oh well, I'll be listening to this again to hold me over until then.

Disappointing

I usually enjoy books that are in a series. Not in this case. There is no resolution to the story line. NONE. I actually thought that my program had accidently skipped to the end of the book. But no, it just ended without any resolution to the story. I had always enjoyed this particular author but after this I will be more cautious. To me a series of books may be related by the hero or heroine but each book contains a story with a resolution. This definitely is not the case here. The story itself was a bit disjointed as well. It skipped around and started and stopped as if chunks were cut out. There are a lot of characters without enough details to tell them apart. Not happy at all.

end of a paragraph, or end of chapter...

While I enjoy many book series, I think that it is pure greed that ends a book in the manner in which this one ended. Why can't you at least finish a scene?
I won't be purchasing any other titles from this author.

Loved it!

This was my first time reading this author and first time listening to a performance by this narrator. Story first: LOVED it!!!!! I didn’t want it to end was sucked in to the sassy of Lilah and the way she thinks and interacts. She is 100% fully developed and it was easy to picture all aspects of her throughout the entire story. So much so that even her nightmares could be felt! Lisa Renee Jones has instantly become a go to author for me and I am starting a new listen tomorrow!

New narrator for me as well, and I limited my stars to 4 because it too a few chapters to adjust to the style of her male voices. It seemed to take a while to have the male voice(s) seem authentic and real. As for Lilah, she was brilliant and became her immediately and once I adjusted to her take narrating male voices I became fully immersed in the story she was telling. She will be added to my list of narrators to try again without a doubt!

Strong woman don’t need to be nasty!

I found the main character to be a bit over the top with nastiness. Strong women are strong because they persevere through challenging situations and come out of it a little stronger. To portray a woman as nasty, offended by everything male, and see’s every gesture as an insult is not an accurate portrayal at all. To me that depicts weakness, insecurity, and a massive misunderstanding of the true meaning of strength.

Amazing story with exceptional narration

Audiobook: Narrator - Madeleine Maby

Wow! Loved this narration! Ms. Maby really brought this character to life and I felt I was right there in the middle of all the danger and mystery!


Lilah has a past buried in secrets that torments her nights. As an FBI profiler she is called in to some of the most gruesome crimes the agency faces. Her ability to go into her Otherworld at those times makes her the best in the business. Now, however, someone is assassinating people who seem to have a connection to the past she just wants to forget.

The case takes her from L.A. to the Hamptons and a reunion with the family she tries to ignore as well as the man that knows all of her secrets. With suspects and clues popping up at every turn and the local law enforcement seemingly content to explain away their latest murder, she races to find the truth while protecting her family as well as herself.

Lilah is one tough heroine. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and everyone knows it. As she progresses through the case she fights against the draw her former lover, Kane Mendez, has on her. All while trying to not totally destroy the current man in her bed’s life as she tries to cut him loose. It’s not going so well for her.

I truly enjoyed witnessing her journey through every twist and turn as it presented itself. Her ability to think quickly not only about what actions she should take but regarding what the next step the authorities are planning. With the help of her contact back in L.A. she processes the information in a methodical manner, the case getting closer and closer to herself.

At this point, Kane is a secondary character that appears to have more information than he’s sharing as is all the other people in her life. He’s made it clear that he still wants her and he wants her here and now. On the surface he appears to be a wealthy business man but everyone knows he has links to a drug cartel.

Additional characters add to the feeling of being pulled into something that is going to blow Lilah’s well preserved order away. I love when I’m reading a thriller and I look at each new character as the possible villain and this book made me antsy every time I time I turned the page. Both eager and nervous about what would be revealed.

This is a fast paced, well written mystery thriller with undertones of uncertainty that will pull you in. Although there is a past history with Kane, at this point the story is not about his and Lilah’s relationship except in the background. It ends on a cliffhanger and now I’m just plain anxious to get the next one. Things are definitely heating up and I need to know who, what and where!

Not your normal romance

I am glad I found this in the romance package. It’s not the normal constant sex scene and has been a great mystery and thriller

Cliffhanger!!

I hate it when a book ends in a cliffhanger ending. I felt so many issues were left unfinished with this story. The premise of a FBI agent having a relationship with the head of a crime family was intriguing. Add in the agent’s dysfunctional family with political aspirations and it muddled more of the story. Some details in this book were gruesome. Not as much romance to the book as I anticipated. I am curious as to how the story continues.

Tangled Web

This is an intriguing tangled web of suspense. It keeps you guessing and is so different than other books I have read by this talented author. Looking forward to trying to guess who's behind the pieces of this mystery.
