I thought it would be a little more drawn out but it was too short.

I must say that I did enjoy the story. I could have loved it, if I would have had some more answers to questions. There were some characters there and then not. There were so events that took place but then they were over. I just wanted a bit more. Luke and Julie come to life with the vocal performance from Eric Michael. He does the job for me. He makes me feel as if I am right her for it all. The smooth timber he provides our male characters makes this wonderful. I could feel the strength of his voice. The recording was smooth and clear. I was able to listen at my preferred speed with no issues at all.

    I really liked this one but there was something missing...what I'm not sure maybe it just seemed rushed or not finished. Julie is a divorce attorney and one of her clients is a judge but the judge's wife has come to her office with an ominous decree or warning. She has secrets and so does the judge and when she lets the judge know his wife visited him he is not surprised or was he but then she commits suicide or did she. Questions galore.

Luke Walker, one of the Walker brothers, and Julie had an affair years before when he was still in the SEALs but there are still underlying feelings. Danger and intrigue bring them together but chemistry keeps them going. This was great and I am looking forward to more in this series.

    This one was a bit better than the first one. I liked that Julie and Luke had a past, liked that they addressed it and that Luke was willing to jump in when Julie's life spun a bit out of control. I found myself laughing at the end when Julie had to act out of character to lure in the bad guys. You could tell that she was uncomfortable with the situation, yet Luke seemed to sort of like it and tease her about it. This one was a bit better than the first one.

Julie Harrison has learned that love doesn't last, and she's sworn never to make the same mistakes as her mother, or her clients. She uses the games men play to keep them at a distance. The only man who managed to break down her walls was Luke Walker, a Navy SEAL who loved her and left her, and changed her forever. When Luke arrives back in New York, running Walker Security with his brothers and having left his Navy SEAL days behind, he sets his sights on Julie, the woman he's always wanted and couldn't have. Except, she runs from him every time he gets close. But now, one of Julie's clients, a powerful judge, gets involved with a dangerous cartel, and his soon-to-be-ex-wife ends up dead. Julie's next on the list, and she finds herself on the run from those who believe she knows too much, and counting on Luke to keep her alive. In the deepest, darkest moments of the night, passion will bring them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Can Julie and Luke trust each other and find their happy ending before they find ... the end? My Thoughts I don't know how i managed to forget to finish this series - it's definitely one of my favs - especially since Ms Lisa Renee Jones is a favorite of mine. So, here we are, back with the hot and sexy Walker brothers, and it's nice to see that we get to have Luke's bit of things. The nice thing here as well is that there's a history between Luke and Julie - and it's a history that actually left the door open, so when they reunite again, on delayed flights in chicago, you know that it's going to be hot. Where this story takes us is on a roller coaster. It's not just wondering if Julie and Luke can make their 2nd chance work, but there's also a life an death situation because of something that Julie's been sucked into - through one of her clients. She's representing a judge for a divorce case, and things are getting dicey - the wife reveals that there's something dark and dirty with the art that the judge collects, and then she's found dead, and we see that there's so much more to the story than what we originally thought. A cartel is involved, some mysterious french guys are at the helm, and we don't know how deep the judge is in, and why now Julie's being targeted. The bulk of the story that we have is determining whether Luke will allow Julie to help because she's able and then of Julie allowing Luke to take control. In true fashion of our author, we see that there's some incredibly steamy control happening, both in and out of the bedroom and it's hot. i can't help but get sucked in again and again, just like we did with Royce and Lauren as well as what we see in all her series. Now i can't wait to see what comes next with Blake's 3rd installment since i feel like he's the one that's most troubled and finding a potentially happy place for him would bring this series to a great ending point.

This is Luke’s story. Julie Harrison is a Chicago divorce attorney with big name clients. Hoping to make a quick flight to her friend’s wedding, Julie would suddenly be confronted with her client’s soon to be ex-wife and a secret that could get them both killed. With her flight cancelled, Julie checked into the recommended hotel only to find Luke Walker-former Navy SEAL and lover in the room next to hers. What a coincidence since her best friend Lauren was marrying Luke’s brother Royce. Luke Walker still had it bad for Julie. Finding her at the airport was a stroke of luck but hearing her story that a client’s secrets could have potential ramifications not just for her client but her life, had Luke calling in Walker Security to track down some leads. But a phone call to Julie would find that her client’s wife was dead and a surprise would await Julie at the funeral. Her client’s wife had a sister and she wanted to hire Walker Securities to investigate the death. Luke and Julie had never really said goodbye. Before his last deployment, he and Julie were an item, but on his return from active duty, he found himself trying to hold things together with his brother Blake who had recently lost his fiancé to an armed attack. Finding Julie again, was a sign that they were meant to be. And he was going to get her back. But every step of the way he seemed to do something wrong. ATF, DEA and an assortment of government departments were all involved in the investigation. A money laundering Cartel involved in stolen art could be linked directly back to Julie’s client and she and Luke had become a bigger target with the information that had been handed directly to them. Blackmail, betrayal and bribery were all part of the game, and too soon, the faces of the players would become all too familiar. DANGEROUS SECRETS is another fast paced and fascinating storyline from Lisa Renee Jones. There are some interesting twists and although there is a HEA, there is still some room for another storyline. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe.com

    This like the previous Walker brother book was a nice story. I'd also give it 3.5 stars. The story was interesting and I liked the characters. Julie was divorce attorney and had some powerful and famous clients. She has no family and it hesitant about relationship commitments. She's smart, beautiful, caring, feisty and strong. Luke is strong, sexy, protective and funny. He is an ex-Navy SEAL. He and his brothers opened a security firm where he works now.

Luke is strong, sexy, protective and funny. He is an ex-Navy SEAL. He and his brothers opened a security firm where he works now. Luke and Julie had a month long fling when he was on a brief leave from the Navy that was based on sex only, or so they thought, since Luke had to go back to duty. No other man or woman ever compared in the two years that they have been apart and now that Luke has left the SEALs and is back for good he wants Julie. He wants to show her that what they had was more than sex and that he truly cares for her. Julie is in the middle of a high profile divorce representing a Judge. His wife comes to warn Julie that he is into some shady work and she ends up dead and now Julie is involved and scared for her life. Luke and his brothers, Royce and Blake are doing everything they can to keep her safe but it's difficult when people are targeting them and others are being killed. Meanwhile Julie and Luke continue having a relationship that grows into something more because they fall in love with each other but Julie has a hard time coming to terms with her feelings. Things get heated with everything and everyone that are after them but when their suspects escape they have no choice but to sit and wait and see what happens from there on. Finally Julie and Luke tell each other they are in love and they get their HEA which was nice to see because they make a nice couple and were made for each other. Their chemistry was strong and they were really hot together. Like the previous story, it sometimes fell flat for me, I think it was the dialogue, but it was enjoyable either way. Now I'm on to the next Walker brother story to see who can crack Blake's heart open after his fiancé was murdered by a drug cartel years ago.

    This book took me a little long to get through and I can only guess it’s because I couldn’t connect to the characters.

I like Luke well enough, but he felt a little flat for me, there wasn’t a lot of depth to this super sexy, super strong SEAL, I wanted more out of him. The formatting was an issue on the Kindle addition as well as a few editing issues, I understand editing issues happen they happen in my own books, but I just want others to be aware of them; there were missing page breaks, a lot of end quotations at the beginning of the sentence, randomly placed backslashes, this is not only a formatting issue but and editing issue, there were numerous sentence that had words missing—a and the are important. I get what a lot of others were saying about the ending it felt like it kind of just hit you in the face, all of a sudden Julie was at the subway, then Royce was there too with no explanation. I wasn’t really sure what Gina’s character brought to the story she felt a bit like a page filler, the story would have progressed just fine without her, then there was the man in elevator . . . who was he? Did I miss his significance? Finally and this is probably why I rated this book as I did was that someone should have caught the mistakes that were made with some of the character names; at one point someone refers to Julie as Ms. Moore her last name is Harrison. Then there’s Blake’s murdered fiancée first she’s referred to as Sara then Rebecca these are mistakes that drive me crazy, know your characters. I will say that I am still a fan of Lisa Renee Jones and I will absolutely read Blake’s story as he’s the one brother I’ve been truly curious about since ‘Hot Secrets’

Jones gave glimpses through either Luke or Julie on their past little fling. Nice role reversal. Instead of the woman knowing she "loves" the man and intending for him to "realize" his feelings. The roles are reversed. It is Luke who knows he loves Julie and intending to show her that she loves him. Luke is your Alpha male. He's hard. He is protective. Especilly when it comes to his woman! Julie - She is use to being on her own. Now family really to speak of. So it's hard for her to see Luke with his family, seeing what she missed out in her childhood. The story had enough action to keep a reader gripped. Though I wonder if this is the last we seen of the villian or will he appear in future books. And Blake, if he will get a story down the line.

    I like this author, recently read If I Were You and rather than waiting for the second book in the series to be released I went in search of more from Jones. It was a quick and easy read, but it didn't have the character development that If I Were You had. Also there are several editing mistakes and at parts the story seemed choppy and rushed, especially at the end. And some of the secondary characters didn't provide enough substance to the story to be worthwhile (Gina, the strange guy that popp I like this author, recently read If I Were You and rather than waiting for the second book in the series to be released I went in search of more from Jones.

All in all, I like the underlying story and because the books have been a fun and easy read, I'll read the 3rd book just to tie a big red bow on the series. But I don't expect it to leave me wanting more like Jones has done with If I Were You.

    Really badly written -- could qualify for a bad movie on the Lifetime Channel. The plot is contrived and the hero and the heroine are cardboard stereotypes. The heroine is a superstar divorce attorney, but in her practice she commits ethical violations that would bring her public reprimands from the bar association. At 50%, I still hadn't gotten into the story so I quit. Really badly written -- could qualify for a bad movie on the Lifetime Channel.

    Though I have found errors throughout this series, I fell in love with the characters and the plot. Some people may say that it is a guessable plot and that there's not a lot to it, but I thoroughly enjoyed each of the 3 books I have read that tie back to each other. I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who liked 50 Shades of Grey! :) Though I have found errors throughout this series, I fell in love with the characters and the plot.

    This was a strong 3.5 star read. Had a bit of suspense, attractive alpha male, strong independent female. Just was a short novel and only scratched the surface in a lot of places. Well written and good steamy scenes, liked possessiveness of male, but lukewarm in end.

    Round two in the Tall Dark and Deadly series goes to brother Luke and Julie. We met them both in book one. Julie is a good friend of Lauren and is helping with wedding arrangements to Royce. A bit ironic when you find out Julie is a divorce attorney. Her current case involves a powerful judge, and things start going a bit crazy after Julie receives a visit from the soon-to-be ex-wife who then turns up dead. Now someone is after her and the only person who can help her is the one who loved her, l Round two in the Tall Dark and Deadly series goes to brother Luke and Julie. We met them both in book one. Julie is a good friend of Lauren and is helping with wedding arrangements to Royce. A bit ironic when you find out Julie is a divorce attorney. Her current case involves a powerful judge, and things start going a bit crazy after Julie receives a visit from the soon-to-be ex-wife who then turns up dead. Now someone is after her and the only person who can help her is the one who loved her, left her, and changed her forever - Luke Walker. As a Navy SEAL, duty called Luke away from Julie, but now he's back and determined to get her back in his arms. He has quite the opportune moment with Julie helping out for his brother's wedding. However, with someone out to get her, Luke has even more motivation. With her life on the line, Julie and Luke find themselves spending more time together. Passion brings them together while danger threatens to tear them apart. Luke needs to find out who the killer is before Julie ends up dead. Whew does Julie find herself in a hot mess with the divorce she is handling for the judge. Lots of twists and mysteries to unravel. It keeps everything moving fast and unpredictable. I like Luke. He is less high-strung than his brother is but he does have a caveman aspect to him. Nothing like a possibility of getting killed to bring two former lovebirds together. I'm a big fan of characters taking their time before they jump in the sack but second chances get a pass. Julie and Luke definitely fit that bill. There's a real nice build-up to the story, all this tension of who is out to get Julie, which was, unfortunately, on the receiving end of a rushed ending. Still, they got their happy ending. Now all I'm waiting for is for Blake to get his HEA. I'm probably going to end up with hate mail here but Dangerous Secrets read a lot like Hot Secrets. Like too much...like 'second verse same as the first' a lot. Strong female lead - check. Strong male lead - check. She's in danger, he goes all caveman helping her - check, check and more checks. The similarity checks just go on and on. Now this book didn't suck so let me get that out there. I get it. It's a series, they're brothers, the women are both attorneys, yada yada yada. There's a working formula here and I know fans of Ms. Jones have come to expect it. I, personally, prefer all my books in a series to be different. Once I start to see a pattern, one that ends up being repetitive, I tend to call it a day and stop reading the series. I'll give it one more try and hope the third time give me something different. Stars - 3, Flames - 3

The reason for his return is not what everyone has been led to believe. The Walker Brothers have a tight family unit with honourable principles. Julie is a Divorce Lawyer.

Luke and Julie had a no commitment This second instalment of "Tall, Dark and Deadly" takes us on Luke Walker's dangerous journey. Luke runs the Walker Security alongside his brothers, Jake and Royce, after giving up being a SEAL. The reason for his return is not what everyone has been led to believe. The Walker Brothers have a tight family unit with honourable principles. Julie is a Divorce Lawyer. She hasn't had much of a family life and her best friend, Lauren is the only family that she has. Luke and Julie had a no commitment relationship in the past and parted ways on the premise that it was casual and temporary. She doesn’t believe in long term relationships due to her own experience with her mother, and those of her clients who go through complicated and difficult divorces. Now that Royce and Lauren are getting married, she can’t really avoid meeting Luke. Their first reunion at the airport brings back feelings that Julie would rather forget. She likes to fend for herself. That's what she has always done. When she finds herself in the middle of a dangerous situation involving corruption and the Cartel, Luke can't bear thinking of the worse case scenario. With drug trafficking, money laundering and forgeries, danger is always imminent. He willingly gets involved, even if it means putting his own life on the line. He is also determined to break down the emotional barrier that Julie uses as an escape from getting involved. I like Julie's caring side but her stubbornness can be irritating. When it comes to her commitment phobia, she refuses to be reasonable. Luke is not easily deterred and fights tooth and nails to get what he wants. The chemistry between them is sizzling hot and this treacherous position that they are in, only reaffirms their feelings. Besides close family and friends, it's hard to know who to trust. Traitors and danger are everywhere. It's a well woven plot which pulled me right in. I was completely immersed in this fast, furious, sexy and romantic journey. I now look forward to reading Blake's story.

I love Luke, his possessiveness is clear with a slight hint of dominance. When Julie is caught in a dangerous situation with a divorce case she is working on, Luke is there is protect her along with his brothers. Jones gives us just enough suspense and heat to make these books so good to listen to. Royce, Lauren and Blake all make appearances in the story too, which I love. When a series has characters that cross into the other stories, it's like getting to know them so well, we are living the situations right along with them. Eric Michael Summerer continues the narration of this series with his incredible voices. He brings just the right amount of suspense and passion into the portrayal to keep you glued to the book!

    Overall opinion: 3 Stars Good storyline that was also overwhelmed by constant self-doubt, 20 seconds to 140 seconds of head babel every time a question was asked, statement made or situation encountered and TSTL moments. The H was the typical dominant male with a soft side and possessive streak while the h was something else. The H is overly loaded with self-doubt and indecision which is a typical for a Special Forces member. The TSTL moments are numerous. The h is a very successful attorney but Overall opinion: 3 Stars Good storyline that was also overwhelmed by constant self-doubt, 20 seconds to 140 seconds of head babel every time a question was asked, statement made or situation encountered and TSTL moments.

    Same old storyline with nothing new which is basically the way all romance suspense novels are. Heroine in need of saving from the bad guys. Hero being all macho and wanting to save her. Needs to be edited more properly since there were a few typing errors and sentences that made no sense. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t figure out what those messed up sentences were trying to convey. Also what happens to Marco and Arel? They along with their operations cannot just disappear.

That’s a loose end in this book that did not get any closure. Kinda disappointed nevertheless I will be reading Blake’s story since I want to end the series.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I really wanted Blake's story next but I found myself loving Luke and Julie more and more. Given that I read this in 3 days, I couldn't put it down. Julie is a spitfire and really quite fun to read. The mess they find themselves in felt a little fantastical but honestly, it was supremely enjoyable fiction which in this day and age is honestly the perfect escape from reality.

The mess they find themselves in felt a little fantastical but honestly, it was supremely enjoyable fiction which in this day and age is honestly the perfect escape from reality. Julie is a divorce lawyer who is drawn into a hot mess of a situation and in way over her head. She and Luke have a long history together and he gets drawn in as her perfect knight in shining armor. You'll enjoy all of Julie's sass. I found myself wanting to just hug Luke as he tries to navigate the waters of a precarious situation and handle Julie along with it. Their chemistry is explosive even as they try to fight it but their story is sweet too. Both are fighting pasts that make them a bit gun shy.

    It was ok. I'm a little triggered by the lack of research regarding civilians and Navy seals. But being the wife of an army veteran itsca hot issue for me. Julie calls Luke a soldier which is incorrect. Luke is a Seal. Soldiers are only Army. Soba little research goes a long way. And the whole in live within days thing because of decent sex is old and tired. It was ok. I'm a little triggered by the lack of research regarding civilians and Navy seals.
