They call him Lucifer for his wild side.
She called him the man she loved, she called him Luke. But then he proved he really is worthy of his nickname. Or so she thought. Nothing is as it seemed back then.
A man with a past. The only woman he has ever loved. Someone wants her dead. That someone is about to find out that yes, he is Lucifer when you dare to threaten his woman. Even if she doesn't call herself that now. He does. But all he ever really wanted to be was Luke—the man worthy of her love.
Book one in the Lucifer Trilogy.
Engaging, suspenseful and intriguing. Everything that is always in a book by Lisa Renee Jones. ~ Kitty – Simply Love Books
Right from the start we know who it was that brought Lucifer to his knees. Surprisingly, we also find out how and why. So, that’s not the mystery here. What is? Who has a hit list and why.
Luke and Ana are explosive. They combust from the minute that they are in each other’s presence and old memories and feelings are fueling the chemistry that just oozes off the pages. Add the mystery with the sexual tension and you have no idea where these two are going to end up.
Surprisingly, LRJ, right from the start, clued us in to where this story was going to go. A love gone bad (and the reason why) … a hit list of all the players that were involved with the love going bad. What we don’t know is who or why the past is coming back to bite them.
Throwing them into situations that will either get them to trust each other again or tear them apart at the seams. And, as usual, she has us questioning every little thing. Is Trevor really dead? Who was Darius working with? What really happened to Kurt. Does this all lead back to her brother?
Again, more questions than answers. But, that’s why we read Lisa Renee Jones. She keeps us on our toes, engaged in the story. It also doesn’t hurt that this is Walker Security and several of our favorites are back and in the middle of the mess right with Lucifer and Ana. Yes, there is a cliff hanger but not one that totally has you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering who is dead or alive.
I open the door. Ana’s sitting on the edge of the bed, staring at the door. The instant she sees me, her lips part, and her eyes travel my body before jerking back to my face.
“You have to put a shirt on. You just—have to.”
My cock is pretty damn pleased with this reaction that says she wants me, but my brain is working overdrive, and for once, overpowering that plaything in my pants. “Why, sweetheart? You want to kiss the scar you gave me better? It’s too late for that. Or maybe, you want to lick me all over? You already did that. You don’t get to do it again. Not after trying to kill me.” I walk to the end of the desk where I left my gun, pick it up, and then lay down on the ground at the foot of the bed.My phone goes to the floor. The gun sits on my gut.
Ana moves to the end of the bed, and sits there, staring down at me. “What are you doing?”
I notice she avoids my name when she would normally do otherwise. I guess she just can’t figure out who I am anymore. Well, I know. And Lucifer fits. She knows, too. “I’m catching a few z’s, and protecting you from anyone that comes in the door. If it so much as jiggles, I’ll sit up and shoot.”
“It’s been a hellish night and morning. Lay on the bed. You can have the side closest to the door. Please.”
I glance up at her. “Sweetheart, if I get in that bed with you, I’ll have you naked in about thirty seconds, and while we’ll both enjoy that, you’ll just hate me for it after. Not to mention we won’t get any sleep.”
“I could say a lot of things to that response, but I probably shouldn’t. We’ll put pillows between us.”
“If you think a pillow will stop me from getting naked with you, you might have been right when you said you never really knew me, Ana. That was right before you shot me, right? I told you. I want to fuck you. I don’t want to sleep next to you.”
She buries her face in her hands and groans a frustrating sound and then glowers at me, all sexy and way too damn hot for my own good. “Fine, Lucifer. Sleep on the damn floor. Just do what you want.” She stands up and walks to the side of the bed before climbing on top.
She tosses a pillow down on top of me. I grab it and stick it under my head. “For the record, me down here and you up there is not what I want. It was never what I wanted, Ana. It’s just who we are now.”
“Yeah,” she says softly. “I know. “
That’s all she says and I want more. But then, I’ve always wanted more when it comes to Ana. And more was never enough.
