Born into a wealthy family he rebelled against, Asher dived into the world of rock n roll, drugs, and women. A blond, tattooed, bad boy, he is the chameleon of Walker Security. A man who manages to switch from rocker leather hotness to perfectly fitted suits. Even effortlessly blending into the underground grunge of the cities. Because he’s lived that world, almost lost himself to that world, until he ends up helping Royce Walker, then a Federal Agent, and now his boss at Walker Security. Royce thinks Asher has conquered his darkness. Some days he thinks he has, too. Some days, he knows he never will.Present day: When several women end up dead from a new drug on the streets, Walker Security is hired to help the police solve the crimes that have the city in turmoil. Asher goes undercover in the club scene for answers, easily calling on that darkness to fit right in. Why is it that only women are dying? What is this drug they’ve never seen before? Who is behind it? And why does everything lead back to a prima donna on the Upper East Side, whom Asher just saw in a nightclub in leather and lace? The very same woman he took to his bed?Asher will face a woman seeking vengeance, whose past is a little too similar to his to feel right. Or maybe it’s a little too similar to be anything but right. But he’ll have to keep her alive to find out, despite her best efforts to put herself in harm’s way at every chance....

Will be going into KU)Amazon US ➜ UK ➜ CA ➜ ➜ ➜ THE REST OF THE SERIES HERE (all books are standalones): AND EXCERPT FROM FALLING UNDER“Just to be clear,” he says, his voice low and rough. “I’m breaking every rule I own with you. I don’t fuck women I’m protecting.”“You could hand me over to someone else,” I suggest, “and it won’t matter.”“Not a chance in hell,” he says, his hand sliding under my hair to cup my neck. “We’ll break the rules together.”“I’m not sure I like how you do ‘together’.”“I’ll make sure you do,” he promises, his lips slanting over mine, and this time he kisses me like he owns me, like he wants to control me, and like I really am his, like I belong to him, and in this very moment, I can honestly sayI am. I want him, and I can’t get enough of him.And how can it ever be enough when he’s this damn impossibly hot, and he’s such a damn good kisser. The way he makes me want his mouth on every part of me and the way he makes me want my mouth on every part of him. And so, there it is. I’m his, but I’m going to make damn sure he’s mine, too. I kiss him back as passionately as he’s kissing me. I meet him stroke for stroke, arching into him, telling him I am here and present, and I’m not even close to afraid of him or of this. He doesn’t get to control me. He isn’t making me do this. I control me, and I choose him and this.Arching into him, his shoulder holster and mine are in the way, and I want them gone. I want him naked. Just to be certain that he knows that’s where I want this to go, my hand presses between us and I stroke the hard line of his shaft. He groans low in his throat, a sexy rough sound that tells me he gets the point. This isn’t his show. It’s ours. It’s us together, or there is no show, with or without our clothes on.His reaction is to tear his mouth from mine, his lips lingering there though, as if he wants to kiss me again, and just when I would kiss him again, he leans away just enough to shrug out of his jacket. I take one step backward, and do the same with my blazer. I reach down and pull off my boots and he does the same. Next, we disconnect our shoulder holsters, and the truth is, it’s the first time I’ve ever been with a man who is probably more armed than me. That feels significant when it perhaps is not. He’s not a cop. He’s not that kind of career complication. He’s a Green-fucking-Beret, and one hell of a hot one, for that matter.He sets his weapon on the couch and snags my hand, walking me toward him and taking my holster and weapon as he does. “Just making sure you don’t end up shooting me before this is over,” he says, setting it with his before shackling my hip.“I told you I’ll wait until after the orgasms.”“Careful,” he says, a hint of a smile on his lips again. “I might hold that orgasm and you captive.”“You can try,” I say, but my head isn’t in the game in this moment, and somehow my hand is on his face, right by the almost smile, that seems to have complicated what should be sex, an escape, a way to pull back the emotions that umbrella stirred in me. That smile reminds me that Mr. Robot is his wall, his way to cope with death, with whatever makes him protect Jesse Marks.He captures my hand. “What are you thinking?”“That you have on too many clothes,” I say, before I let this go someplace emotional, somewhere that two people like us never want to go.My hands press under his shirt, but he doesn’t immediately give me what I want. He studies me for several beats and then kisses me hard and fast. Too fast, but I get over it when he pulls his shirt off. He cups my face and kisses me, his hand sliding up my shirt, his touch fire that has me helping him pull my shirt over my head. Letting him drag me to him where he now sits on the couch. I straddle him, my bra somehow gone by the time I’m there. But my hands press to his shoulders, and I hold him at bay. “I will still arrest you if I need to,” I promise. “This doesn’t change that.”“You aren’t going to arrest me any more than you hate me.” He glances down at my chest, his gaze a hot caress as it rakes over my breasts, my nipples, before his eyes meet mine. “Because you know I’m protecting you.”I ignore the ache between my thighs. Or I try. “From what? The slayer or the Jesse Marks damage patrol?”His hand slides between my shoulder blades and he molds my chest to his. “Do you really want to talk about Jesse Marks right now? Because if you ask me questions, I’m going to ask you questions when I’d much rather be inside you, giving you as many reasons as I can not to arrest me. But you pick. Conversation or fucking.”“Both,” I say, because it’s the truth. I want answers and I want the conversation my emotions are having in my head to shut up. “Fucking first.” I push away from him and stand up, unbuttoning my pants, sliding them down my hips, and he watches me with that unreadable, robot expression that is admittedly sexy as hell. I press my lips to his and that’s all it takes.We are crazy, hot, kissing, his hands on my breasts, my nipples, my neck. I can’t touch him enough. I can’t feel him enough, can’t get close enough, and that’s new to me. I don’t need anyone the way I feel I need this man. I don’t want to need anyone this much, but it’s too late. At least, right here, right now, I do. He rolls us to our sides, facing one another, the wide cushion of the couch more than holding us and the next kiss isn’t fast and frenzied. It’s long, drugging, and somewhere in the midst of his tongue stroking my tongue, I end up on my back with the heavy weight of him on top of me...

    I don't know why it took me so long to take a chance on this author but boy I am glad I did because this was another cracking good read. This is Asher and Sierra's story. A tatted up, long-haired, former rocker, ex-Navy Seal bad boy and a woman on the run from a dark and dangerous past that stretches far and high. A past that if it ever catches up to her will take her and everyone she cares about down with it.I completely loved this one from the beginning to the end. This is now the third book I have had the pleasure of reading by this author in the past month. If the saying "three strikes you're out" applies to misses then I am making a new saying "three hits, and you now get a spot on my favorite author list." Not as catchy I'll admit, but it works. The writing (as always) was fantastic. It was very well paced. The plot was engaging and kept me turning the pages. I especially liked the serial killer sideline the author included. It reminded me of a great Netflix show I recently binge-watched MINDHUNTER. I didn't find this particularly angsty, and there was no OW/OM drama (something that I really enjoy about this author's books, at least the ones I have read so far). The sex scenes were hot and relatively plentiful. It had a fantastic cast of secondary characters. A lot of the couples from other books make appearances and I CANNOT wait for Jacob's book as he intrigued the hell out of me in this one.Both main characters were (fairly) likable. Asher I ADORED. He was smokin' hot. He was alpha. He was sweet. He was protective. He had the patience of a saint, and he was all in from the moment he meets Sierra. Sierra on the other hand...ugh. I had a love/hate thing going on with this heroine. For the most part, I DID find her character likable. She just tended to frustrate me A LOT with her inability to trust Asher and the Walker Security peeps. Every time I thought she was finally going to open up, she took two steps back. I am also really hard on my heroines and when you have a reluctant heroine paired with a seemingly perfect hero I almost always have an issue. The only other issue I had with this one was the wrap up of the main baddie issue was a little anticlimactic. But really that was just a minor issue for me. Therefore this one is getting two huge thumbs up from yours truly.

    "Sweetheart, you already pulled me under and I wouldn't have it any other way."I loved Asher. LOVED HIM!! And really, who could blame me? He was tatted-up, had long blonde-hair, was a former rockstar, an ex-seal, and was a mountain of muscular hotness. Who could resist? Surely not Sierra (heh heh). Oh, and did I forget to mention that he was hugely Alpha and had a hero-complex? Heaven!! Asher and the rest of the team at Walker Security were on the trail of a serial killer. The victim count was up to five. And now that Sierra has appeared on his radar as a potential target, the team must complete the mission before she becomes #6. What doesn’t help matters is that Sierra is on the run from a serial killer of her own. A man she refers to as The Beast. Can two killers be caught with one stone?Sierra was a sympathetic character and easy to like. While she frustrated me with her resistance to tell the truth or accept the help of people who are trained to help, I guess I kinda got it. Fear is a mothersucker and when it rules you, your decision-making skills won’t always be on point. I won’t lie… her hesitance and constant back-and-forth between accepting and fighting rubbed my nerves raw, but I still liked her. However, Asher definitely stole the show in this story. The author’s writing of him really brought him to life for me and I couldn’t get enough.LRJ, once again, delivered an intense story of romance, intrigue and suspense. I really had no clue how these characters were going to capture the killers. I also didn’t know if a happy ending was even guaranteed for Asher and Sierra (no worries, LRJ doesn’t disappoint there). I loved the dynamic between these two. It wasn’t necessarily love at first sight, but it was pretty close. Their instant connection and chemistry was foreign to them both and it was illustrated clearly. Asher was a man who wasn’t looking for commitment and Sierra couldn’t commit because she wasn’t willing to stay in one place long enough to warrant it. But nothing could stop their collision course. They were destined for one another and it was proven in more ways than one. I loved how these characters played off of the side characters that made up the team of Walker Security and how we got to know a few new characters as well. Truly, my heart went out to Savage. I want him to really fit in sometime soon.Book 3 is about Jacob, who is ex-special forces and characterizes the strong and silent type. I can’t wait to see how he falls! His book will be out January 23, 2018 so stay tuned!!Release Date: November 28, 2017Genre: Romantic SuspensePOV: Dual - 1st personHeat: 3.5 out of 5Type: Standalone - Book 2 of the Walker Security series

    So good. 4.5 Stars!~~~~~~~~~~~~~This new addition to the series is a wonderful book! I love that each story is a standalone and you do no have to have read any others in the series first to enjoy this story. While I am a junkie of this author’s writing, it can be ages between books (or seem like it), so getting a refresher on who the cast of characters is is important.This story is all Asher and what a delicious piece of work he is. Loaded with intense emotion, he goes in deep in this story. With two different plot lines running together, the tension is high to protect Sierra and yet he falls hard for her too. Crackling with passion and sexy frenzy, Asher is in full protection mode and it makes for an intense read.The author is so good at creating a books loaded with hot men, steamy sex, passionate feelings, suspenseful situations, and awesome endings. This book is a remarkable story that winds you up right along with the characters. Heart pounding on many different levels, you will find yourself addicted to the Walker clan and Lisa Renee Jones’ writing, just like me!* Copy received for review considerationfull review -

    “Next time you’re naked and this close to me, I’m going to have to show my appreciation. Consider yourself warned.”Sexy, passionate, seductive, and suspenseful, PULLED UNDER by Lisa Renee Jones pulls us back into the exciting and provocative world of Walker Security. Although this is part of a series it CAN be read as a complete standalone. But if you are a romantic suspense junkie to the core, I recommend ANY and ALL of Lisa Renee Jones’ romance titles. Asher and Sierra were great characters. I became invested rather quickly and they held my attention and kept me captivated the whole way through. I loved how Asher was pretty quick to become protective of our heroine. Of course, there was a little of an internal struggle, but with his background and what he does for a living, and the fact that HE was captivated by Sierra from the very start, it’s no surprise that he took to her so fast. Sierra was VERY reluctant of our hero, Asher, because of her past that will not let her go, but Asher was having none of that, and there begins their seductive and suspenseful journey to happily ever after.I LOVED being back in this world. Ms. Jones instinctually knows how to keep her fans engaged and all hot and bothered. She creates characters that are so drool-worthy, complicated, and broken, and then pens the romantic tale of the characters putting each other back together again. It’s exciting! It’s poetic! It’s exhilarating and just beautiful! The only reason I didn’t bump this up to a 5 star read, which is what Lisa usually gets from me because I think she is incredibly talented, was the fact that the end was buttoned up a little too quickly for me. With everything they went through in this book, it would have been better to put a little more meat at the end to give it a real electric ending. I was still very pleased with Asher and Sierra’s love story as a whole. It flowed nicely at the beginning and definitely held my eye the whole way through. These characters, primary and secondary alike, were pretty incredible and I can’t wait to see who is up next. I can’t wait to dive back into this intoxicating world of mystery, intrigue, suspense, and romance!

    Asher knows he's in for it when his new coworker at the bar is a hot girl that looks just like a certain drug dealer's type. Sierra is stunning, stubborn, and sassy. There first meeting isn't exactly glamorous, but when he realizes she's running from something he makes her his business. Sierra's past is a distraction for Asher that he doesn't need for this job, but when it turns out her past might help them out he pulls her into his circle of friends. At first they keep secrets from one another, each playing a losing game, but when they team up it's the other players who need to watch their backs."We're going to help her. I'm going to help her."Oh my lanta, Asher is all sorts of bossy, alpha hotness. He takes the cake for being Lisa Renee Jones' sweetest, but bossiest hero ever. He's also super protective and very possessive, which is great, because Sierra, our heroine, is flighty. She's running from her past, something we know Asher can and is willing to help with, but her inability to trust makes her a hard character to connect with. She has several moments where I thought she'd put herself, Asher, and all of the Walker Security family at risk. She also brought a really interesting storyline to this book, so I can't dislike her too much. Pulled Under features the standard evil bad guy plot, but also has a serial killer plot on the side as well. We get to see a romance unfold, while also getting a glimpse into the everyday jobs of the Walker Security team. "While I fall for her, and she gets to know the killer i nme, will she hate me?"I struggled to figure out where I wanted to rate this on the 5 star scale, because it didn't have as much action to it as I had hoped for. I didn't have the usual fear I have for the characters, because it never seemed like they were truly in danger. Yes, Sierra's life is certainly at risk, but for once our main character and hero, Asher, really made me feel like he could save anyone. He's on a level with Marvel superheroes, if you know what I mean? He was there at all the right moments, he swooped in and saved the day, and stopped Sierra from her worrying, so much that I really just felt like he could face anything. At the end of the day though, like all LRJ novels, I was hooked on Pulled Under and finished it in one sitting, so even without the action and the high-stakes suspense I really enjoyed it. "But I need her. I want her. I have to have her, and protect her."Pulled Under is another great release from Lisa Renee Jones and a real treat for standalone series fans. I'm a big fan of all the extended Walker Security boys so far and I already cannot wait for Jacob's book, because he promises one heck of a story. If you're a fan of hot alpha males, stubborn females, incredible dialogue, and intriguing story lines that keep you hooked, Pulled Under and all of the Walk Security series need to be on your to-read list right away.ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Like usual, Lisa Renee Jones just Pulled me Under with this story. I really didn’t put it down once I started reading it. It is amazingly written by an author who knows how to write compelling, complex characters and story lines. Her women are fierce and strong. Her men are alpha males until they fall in love and then they are uber-alpha. And, at no time, does the story falter or slow down. She writes action packed, romantic, erotic stories that will keep you invested in the story.Asher was just as I described him. He was a man that made his own path in the world, despite his father. He was never a one-woman man until he set eyes on Sierra. As his heart tilted on its axis, his life became more and more complicated until the only thing that he could concentrate on was this beautiful woman and the cases they are working. First and foremost is to protect Sierra from her past and get her to trust him with her secrets.Sierra can’t stop running from a man she refers to as “The Beast”. She can’t let anyone know the secrets that she has until she can afford to go where He can’t find her. People she thought she could trust turned out to be in His pocket. Now, there is Asher. One night with him and she has never felt safer or secure. But, can she trust him. As he brings her into his inner circle at Walker Security, she knows that she’s found people who she can depend on but, her one fear is that he can get to them and kill them just as easy as he planned her death. It takes the village to assure her that they are not going to die … the only ones that are leaving this world are The Beast and Ju Ju. She may be on both of these men’s radar but Asher, Luke, Royce and Blake, along with a host of other Walker Security and Seal Team 6 members will stop at nothing to bring them down.Pulled Under was an intricate story that will have you waiting to see just who will get to Sierra first. With two cases going simultaneously with the same woman being the target, you can’t help but to turn page after page to see how this will end. I can sincerely say that Lisa Renee Jones really wrote a winner with Pulled Under. It amazed me how she wrote two major storylines in one book and cohesively brought them together. She is probably one of the best romantic suspense authors I have read and I know, once I start I can’t stop reading the story that she has weaved. She doesn’t stop at the end of the story, either … she gives you a beautiful Epilogue that ties everything together. If you enjoy Romantic Suspense, pick up any of Ms. Jones’ stories. From the Inside Out Series to the Tall, Dark and Deadly Series to the Dirty Money series … you will not be disappointed. But, be prepared to spend a lot of time on your E-reader or with a book in your hand because, once you start, you will not be able to put them down until you finish.

    4.5 Pull Me Under Stars!Asher is PURRFECTION...(please excuse my girly exclamations because he has successfully wormed his way into my heart from the start. That irresistible charm!) What sounds like a typical love story turned into a romantic adventure filled with adrenaline and angst as the author lured her readers into the world of undercover agents and drug dealers. Asher is working as an undercover bartender to lure and capture a serial killer with a drug dealer profile. Knowing that his job is dangerous and even more so to keep his identity hidden, he never expected to meet Sierra, a feisty beauty with a past.Sierra is running from a dangerous someone, and the last thing she needed was to fall for a tall, build and extremely charming man - who cares if he works in security? Or if he can ignite the sparks in the pit of her stomach? Or his electrifying and passion-filled kisses? The last thing she wanted was to let anyone into her dangerous life, or worse, pulled him under.Jones sensational writing skill was what drew me in the first place. Coupled with her wonderfully complex characters, thrilling plot (every girl loves a dose of danger with her romance) and off-the-charts hot romance, prepared to be pulled under the spell and immersed yourself in this incredible story. I love it!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book generously provided by the author! Thank you so much for the reviewing opportunity!

    3.5 stars I am a little lazy to write a review, so I am just gonna leave a quick recap.I really really like this author’s writing. But...There is always a butSo I noticed that this author tends to start writing really interesting story that engages the reader, every book of hers that I’ve read had great chemistry between main couple, which is one of the most important things for me. There is nothing worse when everything works great in theory but there just isn’t chemistry between couple.Anyway she really can convey the intensity of characters. However after some time, approximately from the middle of the book toward the end, that intensity kinda starts receding. That’s one of the reasons why I dnfed her last book.Besides that, this book was on longer side so that didn’t help to capture my attention.Things started to fizzle a little, and honestly I was waiting to finish the book. Maybe if the book was a little shorter it would help.Regarding the characters, I really liked the hero, he was tough on the outside and an adorable mush on the inside – just how I like them. He was all in for the heroine, protective and possessive but not too baring.However, the heroine was a different story for me. Urg. So I liked her at the beginning, I can’t say that I loved her, she wasn’t weak but she wasn’t too strong either. She had a difficult past but exactly because of that I wanted more from her. I went through some similar shit in past, regarding the abuse and it made me a certain way. Taking no shit from anyone and I wanted ‘that’ more from her. But I am glad she wasn’t weak.But. Here we go with but.My problem with her was that she had no confidence in hero and his team fortoo much time . Time was a problem here, because of course she wouldn’t trust him immediately but after some time it get repetitive and boring (again, like I said the book was on longer side)The second problem I had was with ‘bad guys’. I hate hate hate when books builds up this bad guys as some untouchable Gods and then fall short on execution.The heroine was talking about ‘beast’ so much that I wanted more action and mistery and at the end it was laughable how he was barely mentioned when the ‘got’ him. The same story with the other bad guy.Which is shame, because a good romance with a bit suspense is my favourite combination. Uh, it seems like I wrote the review after all lol.So, the bottom line for this story is that I liked it, but it could have been much better, because like this it was kinda forgetful.Also, on a plus side it was a safe story (view spoiler)[ she was running for 9 months from her ex, the ‘beast’ he was in high position in society so that’s why he had power over her. He was also her husband, she tell this to hero and he tries to explain it to her why she shouldn’t feel guilty that she is now with him (hero), because this wasn’t a normal relationship with ex, she couldn’t get divorce from the beast, among other things he tried to kill her so she doesn’t reveal his dirty business in politics and other ‘jobs’.(hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Asher is perfection and he drew me in from the very first chapter. I don't think I had a single complaint about him the entire book. He's hot, tattooed, alpha, ex-military... and the list goes on. Sierra is running from her past and she needs a break.  Asher is everything she needs but she doesn't want to let him into her life because doing so will make him a target.Sierra and Asher are good together. I loved the way he took control of her safety and allowed her to have a breather.... even if she didn't feel like it was safe for him to be with her. He gave her a safety net of people she desperately needed and a place to belong that she could be herself in. She has to decide whether she can accept it or not.All of that leads me to Jacob the hero in LRJ's next Walker Security book, Falling Under. He is Sierra's "security" while Asher is out of town and the epitome of the strong, silent type. I love him already and can't wait for his book to be here. I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

    Amazing, brilliant, suspenseful, romantic danger filled story! It has strong, tall dark and deadly male leads. Strong amazing women who are put through he11 but with the Walker security men and company by their side good will kick bad' s @$$! Why 3.75 stars then? Because although the story is intense and all consuming, it has you from page one it also ends extremely quick! I mean why oh why are so many authors writing amazing books but they don't understand after investing time and emotions to these books and characters we also need to see the climax more than a chapter or worse several paragraphs! Could have been solid 4.5 read except the ending stopping so abruptly sealed the 3.75 star fate!

    ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review Pulled Under is an unyielding seductive, passionate, and vividly suspenseful romance that very much synonymous and had that staple signature of Lisa Renee Jones that readers are fond of. In this intoxicating read, Jones introduces readers to characters that immediately grabbed my attention as she playful entangles sexual attraction and danger. While some may find the heroine a little frustrating, I however found her characteristic flaw as the underlying factor as to why she and the hero had this connection that drew them together. So if you are looking for a romance that was sexy and entertaining, then this book is for you.Lisa Renee Jones

    A woman on the run, a shadowy undercover bartender who decides he’s on her side the moment he pegs her wrongly to be a bar dancer. Cue the sparks, the banter and the near-immediate fall into bed because of the overwhelming attraction, while what appears like separate threats draw ever closer and start dovetailing. ‘Pulled Under’ sounds like the kind of read that’s up my alley and taking a chance on Lisa Renee Jones (a new author for me) simply means there’s another romantic suspense-author on my list to watch out for. And by and large, it was an engaging story and fairly well-paced despite the instant love/lust, with many characters who’d gained their HEAs appearing from Jones’s other books (though they’re foreign to me).I’m still on the fence with the protagonists however, and there were parts of the book that had me raising my brows in scepticism. Sierra and Asher tussled over the past that hung over her life but they were mostly adults about it, despite the same argument about Asher keeping her safe vs. Sierra not wanting to endanger him coming up ad nauseum. But for a man who had never done relationships, for whom women were mere fuck-buddies, Asher’s sudden, unwavering all-in status with Sierra from the very moment he saw her—the flip of the switch so to speak—and the effusive words of commitment made it all the harder to believe, as was his explanation that it was just that way with him and his other Waker security mates. In addition, the threat to Sierra—elevated to be almost near-untouchable and all-powerful, drawn out tautly over most of the book—was simply wrapped up with an anti-climatic gun-shot that seemed to cancel out all that meticulous planning for an explosive takedown I’d been gearing myself up for. In all, ‘Pulled Under’ wasn’t quite the perfect read for me, but a good one and yes, it’s probably enough to make me curious about Jones’s other books and the next Walker Security story.

    ***ARC Provided by the Author***Lisa Renee Jones writes fantastic, edgy alpha male characters...and Asher is one of the best. He's tough, but compelling. He knows what he wants, what he needs, and how to get it. Sometimes, though, getting what he wants is not the way others think he should have handled the situation.Asher is interesting and I loved that he is self made, even though he grew up very differently. I loved his confidence and how willing he was to tell people how he was feeling, and what he wanted to do about it.Sierra is running from something, or someone, which Asher can tell right away, but he knows she is not feeling safe or comfortable with letting Asher in or getting close.I enjoyed the idea of Asher, who knows what he wants with Sierra who is afraid to want anything.Jones writes excellent characters, and her suspenseful situations are always both well done and balanced well with the romance in the story. The romance was interesting, and it was compelling. I loved both the serial killer story and the backstory with Sierra.Really talking about the plot of this will end up with me giving spoilers, which are evil, so I am going to stop here and say that I enjoyed this and I recommend it.

    Another great read from Lisa in the books! I am really digging these Walker Security fellers. They are strong fierce alpha males and I personally am a sucker for that type. I mean whats not to love???? This story was super intense and intriguing. I wanted to know what was going to happen from the first page. Lisa always does a wonderful job keeping me hooked! LOVED THIS ONE!

    Oh My Gosh, yes! 2018 is bringing out some amazing books by so many author and pulled Under is simply no exception. Honestly believe that unless a book was or has a dark theme I'd have troubles sticking to the storyline, Lisa Renee Jones blew that right out the window with this book. I mean, i read it everywhere i could - out shopping, at restaurants, in bed, in baths, during supper. It was that good. It made me laugh. It made me hate controlling and abusive men, and it sure helped me fall in love with arrogant men with hero complexes and the women who bring them to their knees. I couldn't get enough of this book and really can't wait for the next book to find out whose story we're getting next!. *ARC provided by Author in exchange for an honest review.

    THIS BOOK Y'ALL! I Loved the first book in this series and this one was TWICE AS GOOD. I know I rave liek this a lot, I can't help it, I read really good books, but you just don't understand. This book was romantic and face paces and insta-love in a way that completely wasn't insta-love and worked perfectly.There is something about the protector in Asher that I just love. While Sierra isn't a damsel in distress, she is a woman who knows when she needs help and that is a strength that I admire in a character.This book was a lot of information and I can't wait to see where the third novel takes us. While this one had a big BANG just as the first one did, there are things building in the background that I can't wait to see come to light.I am in love with the Walker Clan and I need more from them. Today would be good.Buy on Amazon: to Goodreads Synopsis: He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She's as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction...Asher wasn't always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire's son, who rebelled against his father's controlling hand, and ended up in New York City's underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he's now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.Or so he likes to tell himself.But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they're working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

    4.5 Stars for this Sexy Standalone New Release from the Walker Security Series by bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.I like my heroes alpha, my heroines ferocious, and my curiosity . . . aroused. And Lisa Renee Jones has delivered, once again, an intriguing, intoxicating love story steeped in danger and secrets. This new series is a spin-off from Lisa's Tall, Dark and Deadly novels, featuring members of the brotherhood otherwise known as Walker Security. Each man has a past, one that precludes falling in love, at least until "the one" woman crosses his path and turns his world inside out (<---pun intended as a reference to Lisa's Inside Out series.)Pulled Under features Asher, a tatted-up, rebellious, ex-rocker, ex-Seal Team Six commando with a helluva hero complex; and Sierra, a haunted, secretive, fiery-yet-vulnerable woman on the run from her murderous soon-to-be ex-husband. It's a match made in heaven -- unless you stop to think that her terrifying past might catch up with -- and destroy -- the entire Walker brotherhood before it's all over. Or that the other loose cannon in this story, a serial killer no less, might kill one or both of them before her powerful ex tracks her down to exact vengeance. Lisa skillfully dangles these possibilities in front of us from the story's sinister beginning to its suspenseful and satisfying end. As usual, the chemistry is intense and immediate, and when their passion for each other finally ignites, it's explosive. Those who have followed Lisa's Tall, Dark, and Deadly series, or who have read Deep Under, the first Walker Security novel, will be briefly reacquainted with familiar characters, but new readers won't be confused -- they will most likely be intrigued enough to check out the rest of her complicated alpha heroes and the women who love them. There is nothing especially edgy about Pulled Under; as an adrenaline junkie, I could have easily tolerated even more psychological and emotional suspense in this story. That being said, it was a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable addition to the series. I'm looking forward to the next Walker story, and hope there are more to follow.

    4 stars. This is a good romantic suspense book! This is Sierra and Asher's story. Sierra is on the run from her powerful, but criminal, husband who wants her dead. She is working in a bar when she meets Asher. He works for Walker security and is undercover, investigating a case on a serial killer who frequents the bar. Sparks fly between the couple, but Sierra doesn't feel she can give in to the attraction because she doesn't know if she can trust him. When the killer sets his sights on Sierra, Asher steps in to protect her. AS they get to know each other, Sierra lets Asher in and tells him about her past. He vows to protect her from both of the threats and they fall for each other in the process. I liked Sierra and Asher. When they first met, Asher was all-in right away, ready to give up his "no relationship" rule immediately. I was a little put off by that fast movement and didn't feel the emotions I was expected to feel. But I did warm up to them as a couple pretty quickly. Asher was protective, sexy and pretty much perfect. Sierra was strong and brave. But she did bother me a bit with her wishy-washiness. Her internal thoughts would go from all-in with Asher to pushing him away for "his own good" really quickly. It was a bit repetitive in that respect and sometimes I felt like she talked in circles. I wanted her to quit trying to run away much quicker than she did. Once she let Asher in and decided to stay with him, I liked her much more. But, overall, I enjoyed this book. The writing was good. The story was interesting, suspenseful and sexy. I was happy to see Asher and Sierra happy together and getting the HEA they deserved. I definitely felt their connection. They were sexy and sweet together. Also, I liked the camaraderie and friendship between the Walker gang. This book is a great addition to the Walker Security series! I even enjoyed it better than book one. I look forward to more from this series and Ms. Jones in the future! *arc provided in exchange for an honest review*

    Originally posted on NallaReadsWhere our first Walker Security novel has action leaping off of every page, the second will leave you wondering just what will happen next. Sierra's on the run...her murderous husband has plans to kill her next and she's had enough of cowering in his shadow. Just when she thinks she's made another successful attempt at hiding she's thrust into the world that is Asher and Walker Security. Bartender by night and ex-SEAL by day, this badass blonde has her in his sights and Sierra knows there's no escaping.When Asher truly learns her secret she can't tell him everything...cause it just may get him killed. But what Sierra doesn't know is that Asher's own secrets mix with hers. His current case of a drug dealing serial killer puts her right in the cross hairs. And it turns out that the partner was someone we never expected. With what-ifs and turns at every corner, you won't know who to trust until the final dramatic ending.Unfortunately for me and this story was the lack of heat between our hero and heroine. There's argument after argument in every chapter and I felt like yelling "enough" at these two. But what lacks in chemistry Jones' makes up for in action. The whole team is in your face for this case and I truly had no idea it would end the way it did!

    "The right kind of Beast."Pulled Under did just that, pulled me under as the author weaved a tale of secrets and suspense. Being a big fan of crime drama on TV, I had the best time testing my profiler skills as I joined the Walker Security team as they worked a dangerous case.Asher is an Ex-SEAL. But it's hard to tell now that he's covered in tattoos and wears his blond hair long. Nobody would suspect he's working undercover as he smoothly charms the ladies and jokes with the customers as he tends bar. And when the new girl shows up, he can't be blamed for assuming she was there to dance on the bar, right? He thought it was a compliment, but apparently, she found it offensive.She is on the run. She's working for tips only and that tells him she doesn't want to be found. Just what he needs to bring out his alpha protective instincts. She's fierce and beautiful. And she has no intention of answering any of his questions. Of course, that's what he can't resist, a mystery to solve. And when he learns that she's in danger, good luck getting rid of him. And guess what, Asher is a package deal, he comes with the whole Walker family.I really enjoyed this installment of the Walker Security series. I'm getting very attached to the men and their women who are also part of the team. Their witty banter is very entertaining and their love and support for each other endearing. I can't wait to meet the women that tame Jacob & Savage, they have their work cut out for them. The line forms here...

    Those tall, dark and handsome men of Walker Security are back!It's Asher's turn to be undercover and behind the bar at this dive in one of the worst parts of town. One perk, he gets to admire the dancers that perform on the bar while he fixes the drinks. When a new girl shows up, he immediately assumes she is a dancer. One crude and inappropriate comment later, and Sierra (the new girl) puts him in his place without batting an eye. He deserved it!Sierra is smart, with a quick tongue, and independent. Nothing more attractive than a woman who looks hot and has a brain. Asher is "pulled under" by Sierra's force of nature and the rest is history.This instant attraction spurs Asher into finding out more about her and discovering she is on the run.This is a great thriller! Sierra has survived nine months on the run from an evil man and now she has landed right smack in the middle of an investigation that will further place in peril. As she teams up with Asher, among other things, she is about to discover just how strong she is. The interaction between Asher and Sierra has an interesting vibe as he wants to protect her while she is trying to stay independent. Hot and sexy, this thrilling read is one not to miss.I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Thank you to the author for sharing a copy with me.

    Reviewed on behalf of,This is book two in The Walker Security Series, and it never fails or I’m very fickle because I've been in love with Kyle from Deep Under. Now I’m in quandary because Asher really does for me. There is nothing sexier than one of Lisa Renee Jones Heroes they always feel like the real deal.Sorry I was focusing on Asher, I can’t help it. On another note I always have a lot of respect for her heroines, and Sierra did not disappoint. The more you get to know about her the more kickass Sierra becomes.When these two get together under such extreme circumstances you can feel the attraction sparking between them. All this with a life and death situation that Lisa weaves with her usual expertise. I was glued to my kindle, and ended up reading through the night. To me this is a five star feast in every respect. Even though this is about Asher and Walker Security they can be read as a standalone, each couple get their HEA, but we meet all the bunch through each story. Anyway this is a great series so give one a try.I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Asher is perfection and he drew me in from the very first chapter. I don't think I had a single complaint about him the entire book. He's hot, tattooed, alpha, ex-military... and the list goes on. Sierra is running from her past and she needs a break. Asher is everything she needs but she doesn't want to let him into her life because doing so will make him a target.Sierra and Asher are good together. I loved the way he took control of her safety and allowed her to have a breather.... even if she didn't feel like it was safe for him to be with her. He gave her a safety net of people she desperately needed and a place to belong that she could be herself in. She has to decide whether she can accept it or not.All of that leads me to Jacob the hero in LRJ's next Walker Security book, Falling Under. He is Sierra's "security" while Asher is out of town and the epitome of the strong, silent type. I love him already and can't wait for his book to be here. I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

    Jones comes through again with another stellar story. I am obsessed with the men of Walker Security. Exciting, intense, intriguing. I devoured every page.Asher hooked me immediately. That man is something. Then, enter Sierra. It was clear that there was more under the surface and I had to know what it was. Jones has a knack for creating characters who are easy to connect with. Not only are they multidimensional and evolving but their circumstances are riveting as well.I always look forward to see if there are any little "Easter Eggs" included. I get excited to see which characters from other series will make an appearance. It's a fun treat to come upon a familiar name or couple.Jones manages to create completely different stories that all thoroughly captivate me in much the same way. I get so lost in them and the feelings they elicit. I find myself both utterly satisfied, yet desperate for more.

    4.5 Stars! Asher captured my heart from the beginning. He comes across as a controlling, possessive, alpha man, but then counter that with loyalty, friendship and a caring heart, throw in hot, ex-military and tattooed and boom, you have the perfect male specimen. Right from the start Sierra and Asher are a perfect match! She may need his protection but she is one strong, feisty lady and has survived running from a deadly husband. He needed a strong, intelligent partner in his life and as luck would have it, fate put them together!
