Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.
Demand starts off where Denial finishes but in my honest opinion, you don’t need to have reread Denial in order to read Demand, there is a small recap at the beginning of the book to refresh your memory which for me was a big help.
The essence of this book is to discover who Ella truly is. Is she a good person? Is she a bad person? Is she someone who has just found herself in the wrong place at the wrong time? Is there something more sinister going on? Is she more of a danger to Kayden or is she just a pawn?
There is so much to find out and I have so many things rushing around my head as I attempt to make some sort of sense of this book. This book is full of suspense, and mystery but honestly that makes it appeal to me so much more.
The amount of suspense that features makes me unsure about who is being truthful and who isn’t. There is so much to take in and while you get so much action and suspense, you also get this feeling that you have to keep reading to get the answers that you want.
“I’m not using you Ella. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are in my bed. You are in my life. And you are in parts of me I didn’t think anyone could find again.”
The one thing that I trusted was real all the way through the first book and this book too was the love and passion that Ella and Kayden have for each other. They are so passionate with each other in the steamy sense as well as the fighting sense. It makes for hot reading that’s for sure.
“…Amnesia doesn’t mean stupid.”
Too right, it doesn’t. Even though Ella does not know the truth about herself, she’s still feisty and I love that part of it. We get to see Ella as she is, even though it could be completely opposite to who she really is. She is so smart and sassy which just makes me love her even more. There is flashbacks and we get morsels of her past but I just want more. I really want to know what the heck is going on.
There is a cliffhanger but that is to be expected especially as there is another book to come in the series. I’m excited to get that one towards the end of the year and find out more about Ella and Kayden. For all Lisa fans, you will love this one!
5 Suspenseful Stars!
Crossing behind the couch toward the kitchen, I find myself remembering those naked, intimate moments with Kayden only a short time ago. The passion. The trust I’d felt for him. And then his words: “We both want more. Until we don’t.” The words send a surge of adrenaline and nerves through my body.
The scent of freshly brewed coffee teases my nostrils as I reach the kitchen, where I immediately find Kayden standing behind the island. But it’s not him that makes my heart lurch, as usual. It’s my gun that’s lying on the counter between us.
And when I should perhaps step backward I find myself charging forward to claim the other side of the counter.
“What is that for?”
“You thought you needed it earlier,” he says. “I want you to have it now.”
My fingers curl on the tiled counter. “Do I need it?”
“That’s for you to decide.”
“That isn’t the answer I want.”
His jaw sets hard. “If you’re expecting an answer you’ll want, you’d better pick up that gun.”
We stare at each other, a push and pull between us that has nothing to do with fear or intimidation, and everything to do with a bond we both know is being tested. “I know what you’re doing.”
“What am I doing?”
“The same thing you did outside that church, when you helped me hold the gun to your chest.”
“Which is what?”
“Offering me the façade of control.”
“You holding a loaded gun on me in no way equals a façade.”
“I know you now,” I counter. “You don’t give up control, even when you say you are.”
He rests his hands on the counter, one turned just enough for me to catch a glimpse of the hawk inked on his wrist, its wings spread, the mark of a man whose rules of many must dictate his actions. “There are two sides to this coin,” he says, his words drawing my attention, his pale blue eyes piercing mine. “The me with you, and the me with everyone else.”
“We barely knew each other at the church.”
“I’d already decided you were mine. You just didn’t know it yet.”
