HOT SECRETS has sex with a capital S for SEXY! ** HOT**There will be sex, there will be hot sex.

The Walker Brothers…

Tall, dark, and deadly, these three brothers run Walker security. Each brother is unique in his methods and skills, but all share key similarities. They are passionate about those they love, relentless when fighting for a cause they believe in, and all believe that no case is too hard, no danger too dark. Dedication is what they deliver, results are their reward.


Royce Walker, a former FBI Agent, who’s opened a private security firm with his brothers, has always had the hots for the prim, proper Assistant District Attorney, but considered her hand’s off because of a family connection. However, when danger threatens Lauren, he isn’t willing to stand by and watch her get hurt. Now the passion for survival is only rivaled by the passion burning between them. And that passion, might just be the death of them both.

My Review 4

Hot Secrets is the first book I have read from author Lisa Renee Jones and I really liked the story.  I liked this so much I finished it in 2 days.

Hot Secrets is the first book of the Tall, Dark & Deadly series.  Royce Walker is a former FBI agent that now owns a private security firm with his brothers.  He is hired by Senator Reynolds for security and meets the senator’s daughter, Lauren.  Lauren is an Assistant District Attorney and is preparing for a very public murder trial.  While sparks fly between Lauren and Royce there is also danger.  Lauren is being stalked and it is perfect that she has just met Royce, her own personal body guard.  But Royce is keeping a secret from Lauren that can destroy their chances of a future.  Hot Secrets is a sexy romance mixed with suspense.  I love this combination because the story kept me interested.  The sex scenes were hot but I wasn’t swept off my feet.  Royce is described by Lauren as an “alpha male” but he came across as bossy to me.  For me he wasn’t an intense character to receive an “alpha male” status.  I thought he was sexy and tough, so I did like him.  I liked Lauren because she was a smart and tough attorney.  But I wish she would have stood up for herself with her family.  As ADA she wants to fight for victims but it was odd that she couldn’t fight for herself. 

Despite my issues with the main characters I really enjoyed the mystery.  I thought it had surprising twists and kept me guessing until the end. Overall I liked Hot Secrets.  It was a quick, sexy and suspenseful read. I’m looking forward to reading more from Lisa Renee Jones.
