ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date November 28, 2017
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.
REVIEW: PULLED UNDER is the second instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary adult WALKER SECURITY romantic, suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Walker Security- a spin off from her Tall, Dark and Deadly series. This is thirty-three year old Walker Security agent and former Navy SEAL Asher Montgomery, and twenty-eight year old Sierra Marks’ story line. PULLED UNDER can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. There is a slight cross over with the mention of characters (Kayden and Ella) from the author’s Careless Whispers series.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Asher and Sierra) PULLED UNDER follows the building relationship between Walker Security agent Asher Montgomery, and Sierra Marks- a woman on the run from her past- as past that is desperate to silence our story line heroine. Former Navy SEAL Asher Montgomery is currently working under-cover at a local dive bar, as he and the Walker Security team search for a serial killer that is targeting beautiful brunettes in the New York area. Enter Sierra Marks, a woman down on her luck, a few months shy of her PhD in Forensic Psychology, but a woman that calls to Asher’s heart. What ensues is the growing romance between our leading couple as Walker Security agrees to go to battle against the man searching for our story line heroine.
For nine months Sierra Marks has been on the run struggling to stay one step ahead of the people hoping to destroy her life. A temporary position at a local bar finds our heroine up close and personal with Asher Montgomery, a man who exudes a dark and dangerous vibe but the man with whom Sierra will fall in love. As the Walker Security Team keep an eye on a potential serial killer, they begin to call in favors as Sierra’s past becomes all too familiar.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Kyle and Myla (Deep Under #1), as well as Blake and Royce Walker, and their spouses Kara and Lauren; Walker Security agents Jacob King and Rick Savage; bar owner Terrance; local drug dealer Ju-Ju; and Sierra’s ex husband Devin Marks. Jacob and Jewel’s story line is next in Falling Under.
PULLED UNDER is a story of romance and suspense; of one woman who must relearn to trust, and one man’s battles with demons from his past. The premise is an entertaining and engaging story line that follows several paths- all leading back to our story line heroine. The characters are colorful, charismatic and energetic; the romance is a case of insta-lust but sexy and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. Saying that, I did struggle with the anti-climactic feel, and rush to the finish as it pertained to the diverging yet parallel threats against our story line heroine-for all of the build up, the conflicts were over too quickly, with little fanfare, hassle or effort.
