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.

Overall, I thought Pulled Under was fast paced and engaging. Lisa Renee Jones really pulled you into the mystery behind Sierra and her past until finally everything was revealed. I really liked Sierra in the beginning. She’s sassy and gives just as good as she gets when it comes to Asher. Though, as time progresses I had a hard time connecting with her. Asher and the Walker crew were clearly there trying to help her, and while I somewhat understand her reasonings for not wanting their help, she kept throwing stuff about her past in Asher’s face as if he doesn’t know what he’s capable of. Never once did he back down from being there for her yet after every turn she was ready to run away, which got a bit annoying. You couldn’t help but to love Asher. Yeah, he comes off as pretty cocky at times but he was persistent when it came to Sierra. He did everything he could to ensure her safety even when she tried to push him away. I enjoyed the way the story unfolded but I felt like the ending was somewhat rushed and the resolution was too easy and predictable. Aside from that, I thought this wasn an entertaining read.
“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…
