Description

The first book in the dangerously sexy Naked Trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones.
We all have secrets. That means everyone, no matter how prim, proper, and perfect they may seem or pretend to be. Secrets they don't want revealed. Secrets they deny exist. Secrets they might even tell themselves can be forgotten. Sometimes the core of a secret is a sin and while some sins can be forgiven, all cannot. At least not in this lifetime, and maybe not even the next. Perhaps they simply have to be buried. Hidden. Denied. Denial might even be survival. But guilt is brutal. 
I’m Emma Knight. 
Denial is my survival. 
Guilt is not my friend. 
And for a while, I went to extremes to escape. I met a man. Isn’t that how the story always starts? The sex was wild. Consuming. Almost brutal at times, and I lost everything to it. No thoughts. No guilt. No self-respect, I realized too late. I lost me. But I found me again. And I’m a better me now and on my own. Better when you don’t see the scars. Better when you don’t see the sins.
Better alone. 
I’m still the perfect daughter of the perfect father who runs the perfect hotel chain. Because perfect is what everyone wants from me, especially him. He’s demanding. He’s smart. He’s raised me since my mother died when I was five and while he loves me, he wants perfection from me. I will run the hotel chain one day, and everything I do is about preparation to be good enough, perfect enough, to do it as well as he does. And that’s okay because I love him and he is really is pretty darn perfect. I want him to be proud of me. 
But then I wake up one morning and he’s gone. Lost. And it’s a heartache that sideswipes me. Now I’m running his company, and I find out he wasn’t so perfect after all. He had secrets. Dangerous, illegal habits that I'm now covering up and trying not to inherit. Because yes, I have a secret, but it was a tragic, horrible accident. My father’s secrets are no accidents. 
And then he comes into my life. Jax North. He's handsome, brutally so, wealthy, which matters simply because he doesn’t need my money, which is now quite a lot, perhaps too much, if that is possible. Our first encounter is intense and sex is my escape. I go with it. I go with him and what a ride it is. And then, I say goodbye. Only you don’t say goodbye to a man like Jax, if he doesn’t want you to. I've challenged him without meaning to. He wants me. I don’t want to want him, and yet, I crave him. And he tears me down, my resistance, my walls. But those walls protect me. They seal my secrets inside. And I forget that being alone is safe. 
Before long, my secrets begin to be revealed, and I trust him so deeply, that I think maybe, he can handle them. Maybe I dare to believe that alone isn’t better.
Until I discover that Jax was never an accident.
He has secrets.  
He knew my secret.

    I knew this was a trilogy but I was hoping that each story would be a different couple. Not so. BUT each of the following books will be released soon (within a month or so of each other) so the cliffhanger isn't too long. Jax and Emma have such a complicated background. Jax is looking for revenge and Emma is trying to determine who and what she can trust with information she was given. And then add all the lies, sneaking, backstabbing and gossip and it's hard to know who and what you can trust. Thankfully Jax and Emma have each other or at least they start to. It's hard for each of them to trust yet each other is the only one who has the others back. What started out as a fling seems to be a deeper relationship that will protect each other over all their enemies.
  • A slow burn full of tension

    Jones begins her Naked Trilogy with a slow burn. One Man sets things in motion. We are introduced to intriguing characters, an intricate mystery, and a sense of danger that leaves me anticipating what could come next. As Jones sets up the story for us, we see so many possibilities. Who is the guilty party? What is the truth? What secrets are being hidden? I need answers. I’m hoping that things pick up a bit more in the next story. I’m already invested in this couple and finding out how things will play out for them. The tension and the excitement of what’s to come had me on the edge of my seat.
  • Can’t wait for the next book

    One Man is a great read with one HOLY CRAP of a cliff hanger. Jax North goes looking for answers about his brother’s death and comes up with a problem, Emma. Emma Knight is having a hard time dealing with her father’s resent death and what secrets she has uncovered because of it. These to know of each other but when they finally meet the sparks start flying. The problem is either of them know who they can trust or if they can even trust each other. Can’t wait for the next book.

    WOW! Lisa Renee Jones sure knows how to take you on a fast paced breathless journey. That is full of intrigue, power, passion, secrets and lust. Sitting on the edge of my seat, I couldn’t read this fast enough. With every page as secrets are revealed I am left wondering, what else don’t I know. Worrying and loving every minute of this fantastic journey. Something big, feels like it is just around the next corner. And I cant wait until I know what it is. And as if that isn’t enough Jax North and Emma Knight just about singed my fingers, with their intensely hot, intimacy and scorchingly hot, affair. As these two join forces to figure everything out, what else will come to light as Emma continues to reads her father’s journal? As Emma struggles with her family’s secrets. Will her brother be just as ruthless as her father? What else does Jax’s know? Will the men of Walker Security be able to protect these two? As usual Lisa Renee Jones took me on QUITE the adventure, and left me hanging with a epic cliffhanger! I need the next book in this series “One Woman” NOW!!

    Lisa has a great talent to write Romance series, trilogies and duets. The woman characters are strong, the guys are sexy as hell and the story takes you on a journey. Most of her stories intertwined but you can read them stand alone. This is Jax and Emma story. Their families hate each other, they have a lot of money and Greed is alway interrupting great sex. I think it’s a MUST READ and I can’t wait for the next book to continue the story.
  • A new trilogy you don’t want to miss!

    I need book two stat!!! One Man is a MUST READ! The intensity in this book has me on a natural high. I loved Emma and Jax together! So I was pretty much on the edge as the story these two hide start to unwind. The heat factor is through the roof and insanely hot! I hung on to every word and I cannot get these characters out of my head! I am excited for this new trilogy and know that we are in for a heck of a ride!!

    One Man (Naked Trilogy #1) is a book filled with questions that were made to keep you guessing. This had me turning pages only to arrive at the end with one amazing cliff hanger. Jax and Emma are wildly attracted to each other with amazing chemistry. But, Jax and Emma both have secrets that reveal themselves slowly as the story unfolds. Jax is filled with rage and the need for revenge, enter Emma. While, Emma finds a small piece of comfort in the one person she cannot trust. Take the rage, need for revenge, instant chemistry, mix it with suspense and drama and steamy scenes between Jax and Emma and you will have your new favorite read. Lisa Renee Jones had done a superb job with her new trilogy. Now, I will wait patiently until One Woman (Naked Trilogy Part 2) is released.
