PULLED UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones
NOVEMBER 28, 2017
A new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…
He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She’s as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction…
Asher wasn’t always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire’s son, who rebelled against his father’s controlling hand, and ended up in New York City’s underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he’s now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.
Or so he likes to tell himself.
But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they’re working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

“You want more now, and yet you don’t want it enough to make it end. And I already don’t want it to end, Sierra.”
She leans into me, her head resting on my shoulder, emotion that isn’t pleasure radiating off of her and crashing into me. I cup her face and tilt her chin up, my thumb stroking her cheek. “What are you thinking?”
“Nothing. Everything. Can you kiss me again already?”
“Where do you want me to kiss you? Tell me.”
“Everywhere.” She pushes to her toes, and her lips find mine, looking for an escape, trying to drive her demons away.
I want to demand her answer, make her tell me where she wants my mouth, but I feel her desperation, her need to escape whatever is in her head. And so, I press my lips to hers, I kiss her mouth, drinking her in, and I don’t taste him this time. I taste her. I taste us. I taste need and hunger and passion. “I want you naked,” I say, my hands sliding inside her jeans and panties. “In every possible way, Sierra.”
“I’m pretty sure I’m already there, and it’s terrifying.” She flattens her hand on my chest. “If you turn into an asshole, I swear—”
“You can punish me,” I promise, “and I’m still willing to offer suggestions.”
“If you turn into an asshole after I trusted you,” she says. “I won’t need suggestions, Mr. Ex-Navy SEAL who won’t be able to hide from my wrath.”
Fuck, I’m crazy about this woman. “Good thing I’m not going to turn into an asshole. I want you naked,” I repeat, and this time, I make it happen. I lower myself to one knee and take her jeans and panties with me. My arm wraps her waist and I lift her, dragging her clothing away, and setting her back down. My hands settle on her hips then and I look up at her. She stares down at me, the simmering look in her eyes all about arousal, submission. And I want that from her and not because it’s some sex game, of which I could play and play well.
I press my lips to her belly and just that easily she trembles, and it only makes me want more. Everything is more with her. I drag my mouth lower and lower…

** ARC kindly provided by the author for an honest review. **
I was intrigued by Asher the first time I met him, and I have to say that the excerpt at the end of Deep Under made me want to read his story. Blond, tattooed and dangerous? Right up my alley!
I don’t say that his looks isn’t something appealing but still, my kind of weakness but I have to say that there were more about this character, more than meets the eye. Turning away from his father’s legacy and became the man to risk and save lives, working at Walker Security. When he crossed paths with Sierra while doing an undercover job, he knew that his life was going to change.
I’m very wary of insta-love stories, all over the top kinda thing but I was pleasantly surprised by their story. Lisa Renee Jones knew how not only to bring the heat but to create a great chemistry between the characters, that keeps you captivated, a bit of hotness, a little sweetness and a hint of mystery. From the beginning, Asher and Sierra got this intense connection and great banter. For once, a woman wasn’t falling immediately for the bad boy style and was trying to keep him at distance.
If you have met the Walkers, you knew that once they set their eyes on a woman, they won’t stop until they make her his. Asher was the perfect example of the alpha guy with a hero complex, willing to save lives and to prove that he could make a difference and bring justice when deserved, but this time it wasn’t about saving the woman, it was to make her feel safe. Because Sierra got some big luggage and running away. And Asher definitely felt it.
I was captivated from the beginning until the end, as we followed the Walkers on their new mission colliding with Sierra’s past. A dangerous game when anyone could be killed.
I did appreciate how united they were, acting like a family, having each other’s back without holding back. Their banter was amazing and it gave a great pace to the story, lightening the mood when it was at times too heavy or serious.
Sierra was strong and brave, knowing how to keep the guy on his toes. Tackling crime, fighting back, protecting the ones they love, hiding their insecurities and fears aside, only seen by the alpha hero.
As the second book of the series, I had to say that there were some improvements compared to the first installment, it felt less hesitant and rushed. The author took time to settle the mood and to create a strong storyline. It felt more developed to me.
Pulled Under was wickedly hot and passionate, intriguing and captivating, making you in the process fall in love with the Walkers men. Can’t wait to read the next one!
