Review: Surrender (Careless Whispers #3) by Lisa Renee Jones

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 world—all 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.

4.5 of 5 Stars

It is no secret around the blog that we LOVE Lisa Renee Jones.  In fact, Denial, the first book in this series was one of our top books in 2015.  We are huge fans of the Inside Out series and knew part of Ella's story from that series.  But we really found out what was going on when the first book Denial released.  Once we realized the mystery surrounding her disappearance and were introduced to Kayden Wilkens we were hooked.  Obviously, you need to read these books in order.  So if you haven't read the first two in the series, kindly go one click them first!  And get the Inside Out series as well if you haven't read it.

Surrender picks up where Denial left off.  Ella is continuing to regain parts of her memory but it appears as if she is subconsciously blocking pieces as well.  Kayden is the leader of the Underground, an elite group of treasure hunters that have many resources to help Ella.  But what will happen if she is actually a part of the CIA and they are supposed to be enemies?  It seems the more information Ella remembers the more she wishes she didn't remember.  Meanwhile Kayden and Ella's bond continues growing stronger and more than anything Ella want's to believe that whoever she really is, whatever her background truly is that when the truth finally comes out she and Kayden's relationship will be not be affected, only stronger.  She loves this man and above all else she wants to spend her life with him...swoon!

Sara and Chris make an appearance in this final book and we couldn't be happier!  But Ella is extremely worried that her best friend is going to get caught in the cross hairs of the French and Italian Mafia.  I for one loved seeing the two series crossover, it was such a fulfilling experience seeing everything come full circle.    

This intense book is a race to find a rare 3 Billion dollar butterfly necklace while weaving memories into the present.  It is a roller coaster ride of emotions trying to unravel the secrets and determine who she can actually trust.  Ella struggles with trusting her gut while having flash backs.  Even I was doubting characters who I felt solid about in the previous two books! Lisa Renee Jones excels at keeping her readers hooked taking them down pathways you never really see coming.  It was the perfect conclusion to an fantastic series.  Don't delay, one click and enjoy the mystery, intrigue and love story that only Lisa Renee Jones can execute!
