Review ~ Hot Secrets (Tall, Dark & Deadly #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

Hot Secrets (Tall, Dark & Deadly #1)

ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: 23rd August 2012

Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who’s opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand’s off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn’t willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.

My Opinion

This was a quick, easy read that although was predictable and a bit of a whirlwind, it did keep me engaged and hooked until the end. I liked that it was a short read that was filled with a lot and I also liked that there was more to it than just insta-love.

I'm all for hot bodyguards and alpha males at the moment so this was top of my list to read when I downloaded it. I loved Royce and his possessive or 'caveman' attitude as Lauren referred to it, even if I had to change his appearance in my mind to make him hot to me. I liked his control and the way he protected Lauren. He was a character you could count on and wanted to support the whole way through. He was consistent and a constant that could be relied on and not once did I doubt him.

As well as that, I did like Lauren's strength and how she grew to rel on him. I will admit that because she was so keen on growing after the death penalty it didn't make her the most likable character. I felt that, although it was her job, it made her a bit cold and heartless because of the way she pressed for it even when her safety was questioned.

Apart from that though, I liked the overall story and the drama built well as it became more prominent and dangerous. I would have liked a bit more on the ending so it didn't feel so rushed and over in the blink of an eye but I'm glad there was a good resolution.

Overall, if you like insta-love, hot security men, and short reads you should check out Hot Secrets.
