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.

I’ve been reading another series by Lisa Renee Jones and really have enjoyed so you know of course I’m going to want more by her. I picked to read Tall, Dark & Deadly series because, come on, that title alone is screaming ‘I’m so sexy, read me next’. And sexy it is, and I did like it but… There is always a but, so here is what worked for me with Hot Secrets and didn’t.

Royce is yummy and his brothers are entertaining as brother can be, especially when you live in the same building. Lauren is a strong independent woman and a bit of a workaholic. These two have quite the initial *ahem* meeting that has a bit of a humorous walk of shame…out of her bedroom into her kitchen! Needless to say, they have sparks. They also have suspense. Someone is after Lauren and she doesn’t know whom. Everyone thinks it’s the case she’s working on, prosecuting a battered woman who killed her husband. There’s twist, turns, and the story reads fast.  I have to admit, I figured out who the guilty party was not too long after I started reading, but I let that slide and enjoy the show.

Now no matter how much I enjoy my sexy book, I do prefer them to have a nice slow progression of getting to know each other before they hop into the sack. Unfortunately, for me, this was more of a “Hi how are you and say, do you gotta a condom?” Yikes! The falling in OMG *GASP* Love! was also too quick for me. Come on folks, her life is on the line. You really want me to believe you progressed from Royce meet Lauren to I love you that quick. Well I guess so especially when you throw in a caveman act. And that right there just pisses me off. Lauren is an Assistant District Attorney, which obviously translates into super tough, super smart. Yet, as the story progresses her tough/smartness goes poof under Royce’s caveman attitude. Yeah, okay, I get it. Her life is in danger and he is trying to protect her but come on folks…ADA to damsel in distress? That just kind of killed it for me. Still, fans of Ms. Jones will like Hot Secrets.
