Careless Whispers
(Inside Out Spin-Off)

Before you start reading this review and the Careless Whispers Series - you might want to read the whole
! Ella's books can totally be read as standalones, BUT you don't really wanna miss reading about Sara, Chris & Mark!!! Plus, Ella's story begins in the Inside Out series! And we meet Sara & Chris again in Ella's books!

4.5 Stars


Chris and Sara from Inside Out return in the explosive finale to Ella's story from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones with the third book in the sexy, suspenseful Careless Whispers series.

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers. But even though he has become her anchor
helping her recover from amnesia after finding her unconscious in an alley, and allowing her into his secret worldall is not what it seems. Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella's past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn't begin in that dark could easily end there.

And we're back with Ella & Kayden! I didn't do a re-read of book #2 this time! Lisa does a quick summary in the beginning - that was all I needed to remember!
First we're in Paris with Sara and Chris! *SIGH*
Remember? Ella was allowed a short phone call to her old friend at the end of the 2nd book!

And now that Sara knows that Ella's alive, we go back to Rome.
To try keeping everybody safe and to find this god-damn necklace that started all this mess.
The 300-million-dollar-butterfly-necklace!

Kayden kind of has to work together with italian mobster Niccolo to destroy the other mob-brother - who kept Ella as a slave before Kayden found her! And everybody wants the necklace.
And then there's also Ella's fear that she's a CIA agent and that it would somehow come in the way of her releationship with Kayden. But she still only remembers tiny little bits here and there.

So, we're very busy with very suspensy and sexy things until we can finally get our Happily Ever After!!!!

What will happen to Ella & Kayden?
Will Ella ever remember everything?

or if you haven't started the series yet - or any of Lisa's books - start with book #1 in the Inside Out series: IF I WERE YOU!!!

Great final book in this series!
It was a non-stop suspense mystery again!
You can't stop reading because you just HAVE to know what's behind everything. And of course more importantly for us romance fans - will there be a happy end?
Ha, of course there will be a happy end for our darlings. But it takes us a very long time until everything is cleared up and every bad guy is dealt with.
But of course we have a lot of (sexy) fun while we're fighting for our Happily Ever After!

If I had to name some things I didn't like? Not really ... it was just a bit too wordy. I think we could've cut a few sentences on every page. You don't get to take a breath or a second to take a sip of coffee. Every page is sooo full of words. But I still loved the story!

SURRENDER was the perfect ending for Ella & Kayden! Very sexy & mysterious & exciting & adorable! Great series!
Can't wait to see what Lisa will have for us next!

ARC received for an honest review

I have this terrible disease called Booksalzheimer's, and I can forget about a book before I have even put it back on the shelf!

I was certain that I was going to go into Surrender completely clueless and forgetful of what happened in Demand, but a few minutes I was right back in the swing of Ella and Kayden's world, continuing on their adventure. 

This action packed story was the perfect end to their story.  It was a suspense filled roller coaster of a ride, never knowing what was going to happen to our lovelies next. We never knew who was going to be the next to suffer from betrayal or disloyalty.  I was shocked as events unfolded before my eyes, really did no see some things coming.

I just needed our lovelies to get their HEA.  Can't tell you if they do though!

I have really enjoyed this series, and can't wait to see what Ms Jones brings us next.
