Denial by Lisa Renee Jones AND Demand by Lisa Renee Jones 


Book one in the CARELESS WHISPERS series. This is a standalone spin-off of the INSIDE OUT series (soon to be a TV show) that follows Ella Ferguson, Sara McMillan’s best friend.

Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He’s tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn’t destroy her first.


The sexy, breathtaking mystery continues in New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s stunning second novel in the suspenseful Careless Whispers series—where shocking revelations will reveal themselves and nothing, and no one, will ever be the same.

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, whose searing novels generate “enough heat . . . to start a fire” (RT Book Reviews), dares you to fall in love with her irresistibly surprising and sexy new series.


Let me start by saying romantic suspense is a guilty pleasure!!! These books are perfect mix of both. I am officially addicted to this series. Plus, I have found a new author…and who doesn’t love to do that!!! 

Kayden is a definite “sex on a stick”! Ella is a strong female lead to his immense masculinity.  What a splendid couple. As I always say…they heat up the pages nicely. So nicely in fact, it is hard to quit thinking about them and where their story is leading. 

Kayden rescues Ella late one evening when he discovers her injured on the streets. Ella has no recollection of who she is or how she got there. As she is trying to recover her memory many flashbacks occur. These are as confusing and they are helpful. Is she part of the Italian mafia, is she an enemy of Kayden, has she been a victim of sex trafficking? These are just a few of the many things she could be.  

I am NOT waiting patiently for the next in this series. I need to know who Ella is and did she know Kayden before he found her. 

Just an FYI, do not read Demand without reading Denial first. Demand is really not a stand alone read. It is a continuation of the story in Denial. And what a great story it is. I cannot wait for Ella to get her memory back. 

I received these novels from Simon and Schuster as part of XOXperts
