Publisher's Summary

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the explosively sexy Inside Out and the Secret Life of Amy Bensen series will seduce you with this sultry tale of possession and ecstasy, wild fantasies and dangerous secrets - first in the racy and suspenseful Careless Whispers series.

Ella awakes alone in Italy, no longer sure of who she is. One thing is certain: a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He's tall, dark, and sexy, the kind of rich, powerful man who makes a girl long to be possessed. And possess her he does, whispering wicked promises in her ear, indulging her deepest desires, stealing her trust - and her cautious heart. Soon, though, she discovers that nothing is as it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it will also set her free...if it doesn't destroy her first.

Denial is Book One in a standalone series that spins off from the INSIDE OUT series (soon to be a TV show). New listeners can enjoy this without listening to INSIDE OUT but those who love INSIDE OUT will FINALLY find out what happened to Ella!

Cliffhanger

I love you and your writing Lisa, but your cliffhangers in all your stories are killing me. Love how this ties into your other series.

Why state a Stand Alone? We maybe fooled once...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It is a disapointment when we have been misled with a simple statment, stand alone. Lisa Renee we will still buy your books even without a cliff. The problem most authors don't realize is we are reading many books before the next comes out in a series and when there is a cliff we often can't remember the details for the next in line. Your books are enteraining but not enough to reread to get the details to throughly enjoy the next in the series. OK I maybe a minority here but I would have waited the year or two for the entire series to come out before I will buy a cliff.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I was intriged to see where Lisa would take this story. Ella has been mentioned and there was always the question of where and what happened to her. I feel the story was slow at the start and the conversations that took place in the short time between Kyden and Ella are a bit farflung. What underground kingpin will divulge the details in the short few days they knew each other. Really? She may have been married, deeply in love and the lust and trust in this situations was too unrealistic. Needless to say we still want to know what happens.

Any additional comments?

I am a Lisa Renee Jones fan just a bit disapointed.

Disappointing ending

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Most series leave you wanting more but don't end just leaving you hanging. This one just cuts you off, like the end of a section, not the end of a book. There needs to be a completion of each book, as in the Nora Roberts series that make me want to immediately get the next book in a series, but there's a distinct closure to each book in a series.

Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Renee Jones? Why or why not?

Probably not. I loved the story and the characters, but I don't trust her not to leave the book hanging as in this one. Talk about Denial, we were all denied an ending.

What aspect of Elizabeth Louise’s performance would you have changed?

The performance was well done, with clearly defined characters. I enjoyed it.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Only if the whole story were told.

Any additional comments?

Great story and characters, but the abrupt ending ruined it for me.

Extremely heart pounding

This book but along with the audio needs to be number one on all the charts from her stopping suspense mystery and romance to leaving you wondering who what were when why and what the hell is going to happen next this book has it all this author is extremely talented and it shows in every book she writes but now that there in audio the voice behind it just adds to the magnificence of this book I loved it truly and to be able to listen everywhere it just was truly great

Not what you expect

The story takes too long to go anywhere and when you think you will have the storyline all wrapped up the book ends! Leading you to read book 2 however I don't recommend this book. Sorry sex scenes too

Very excited about the book...didn't like the cliff. My biggest complaint is Kaden constantly say sweetheart it got very annoying by the end of the book.

Are you kidding me!

What did you love best about Denial?

I thought the story line was great. Enjoyed the suspense. But, I'm in total shock at how the Author didn't finish it? What was she thinking!

If you’ve listened to books by Lisa Renee Jones before, how does this one compare?

First book I've read.

What does Elizabeth Louise bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I found as a narrator she did an exceptional job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yah. The end! I just couldn't believe it just ended abruptly. Leaving me totally hanging. I mean seriously!!! At least finish the story with a slight inference to another continuing saga.

Any additional comments?

I will give her one more chance with one of her books but, if it's anything like this one it's not worth it to me to continue on with any others if she's always going to leave you hanging? Their is nothing wrong with continuing on with another saga but, not a total incompletion of the whole story. Their are too many other authors out their who can give it all. She's a good author but, needs to do it right!

What did you love best about Denial?


Oh My Goodness!!!! That is what keeps coming out of my mouth!!! I am in awe of this book!! I just finished and I am so pumped up.
This was an excellent book. I have read most all of Lisa's books and I think Denial is now my FAVORITE!!!
This book had me from the start. The excitement, the adrenaline, the mystery and most of all Kayden!!! Woh, if you have read the book you know what I mean. I have been dying to know what happened to Ella from the start of The Inside Out series and finally getting pieces of it.
It's exciting to see the dynamics of Ella and Kayden. I don't want to say to much because I don't want to give any spoilers but they match!!!
I enjoyed this book so much I am so ready to read DEMAND tonight. I need to know what happens next.
I am so impressed with this book, like I said before I have read her books before but Denial has been set on a pedestal. I love it!!
Bravo Lisa for once again writing another AMAZING book!!! ❤️

What was one of the most memorable moments of Denial?

The Cliffhanger!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely
