Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
Do you really ever know who you can trust, or who has evil intentions? Revenge is like a worm in an apple, it slowly eats away at the core until everything left is rotten. In Lisa Renee Jones novel, Beneath the Secrets she delves into the underbelly of organized crime. In this the third book in her Tall, Dark, and Deadly series, Ms. Jones unveils the last Walker brother's story. 

Blake Walker has lived fast and furious for the last two years, but always searching trying to find a way to wreck havoc and vengeance on those that took the life of the woman he loved, his fianc√©. Two years of carefully constructing a plan and infiltrating the group responsible for killing her.  Now he is almost there,  just one more hoop to jump through and he will be there.  But there is a problem and her name is Kara.  A woman that stirs him and causes life to flow through his veins again.  Only problem is Kara has secrets and she is more than she appears to be.

Women are disappearing without a trace.  When Kara Michaels, a FBI agent's sister disappears, she has no choice but to go undercover and find her. That means infiltrating a sex ring, a drug trafficking organization in order to locate her sister. Of course this is all off the books, she is out there alone, a rogue agent.  While working on finding her sister, she meets a man that makes her burn and feel things she shouldn't.  How can she, he is part of what she is trying to take down.

Fast paced, action packed drama filled pages sizzling with sexual tension and sensual dialogue highlight Ms. Jones talent as a storyteller and creative artist.  Her clever use of characters to support the tempo and mood of her plot is remarkable.  I fell in love with the Walker brothers and their significant others.  This is another excellent addition to my library by Ms. Jones.
