But now, as we face down our shared enemies, as we are lead right back to an explosive discover about my family, and to the night Seth and I parted ways, we will both be exposed in every way. And it's time for me to decide if I plan to love Seth Cage for the rest of my life, or kill him, before he kills me.***Part three of the three part Poison Kisses Serial****

    I have a super-sized headache today, so this review is going to be blingless...Well, this one turned out to be the best of the three parts for me. We finally stopped with the around and around BS (although the first bit was a bit repetitive). But overall this three book series was my least favorite by this author.I usually love this author's books. She knows how to write a fantastic story without all the cliché tropes and OW shit. So you can imagine my shock when I opened part one super excited I have a super-sized headache today, so this review is going to be blingless...Well, this one turned out to be the best of the three parts for me. We finally stopped with the around and around BS (although the first bit was a bit repetitive). But overall this three book series was my least favorite by this author.I usually love this author's books. She knows how to write a fantastic story without all the cliché tropes and OW shit. So you can imagine my shock when I opened part one super excited to read it only to be smacked in the face with a sex scene between our hero and some skank (I am just kidding she was probably a very lovely person *lol*). I know what you are thinking; Eve you are just too picky! I admit I AM sometimes. Especially when it comes to POINTLESS OW stuff, and that was the case here because does that OW plays a part later in the book? NO. Do we ever even see or hear about her again? NO. It added ZERO to the story. In fact, the hero is all up in Amanda's business a mear few hours after having his dick in this OW. So what the f-ck was the point of that scene? Did I need even to read that? I didn't. Strike one...Now, I could have gotten over that IF during those three years apart the heroine had been getting herself some. If it's good for the goose it is good for the gander I say. Well HELLO, cliché number two. The heroine stayed all shiny and fresh never to welcome another penis (instead she got a cat <-- like that isn't sad AT ALL *lol*) while of course as you can see from my comments above the hero got around and around and around. Strike two... I think in this case my expectations got the better of me and the clichés that this author usually does a fantastic job of avoiding colored my feelings over all three parts. I'm sure had the author left out that pointless opening scene my rating would have been higher. Maybe that isn't fair on my part, but pointless OW and cliché topes are getting be a HUGE pet peeve of mine lately. That said, I am sure my overly picky a$$ will be in the minority. C'est la vie...

It was not the story at all as a whole, but rather the brokenness of it all. I need to get the feels and the heart pounding emotions all at one setting.* copy received for review consideration

She's seen it and she's pointing the gun at him.She needs answers or she'll kill him - even if it will kill her too, because she's always loved him more than anything.

I can say that I really enjoyed Seth's story. It was sexy, exciting, mysterious.But what I didn't love-love was that it was a three-part thingy. I'm not a fan of a series of books. Because I always forget what happened. Lisa is amazing in that she always tells us about what happened in the last book in the beginning of the new one. So I should be a fan of a series that is released within a few weeks, but weirdly I'm still not a fan. I want all of the story to be in one book. BUT - that's just me, other readers probably won't mind!People who were wondering about, or even already loved Seth in the Dirty Money series will love him even more now. He's a great guy trying to save his woman and the world! ☺ READ IT!!! ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡

    Poison Kisses Part 3 really delivered when it came to the rest of Seth & Amanda's story. It starts with a flashback to "that day" and then immediately following it we get back to present time. They are as hot as ever together and I liked that there wasn't any BS to their relationship.I wasn't a fan of having the book broken up into 3 parts.The novella length wasn't fun for me, but this is probably just a personal preference because I don't like novellas in general.By the end of the book I re Poison Kisses Part 3 really delivered when it came to the rest of Seth & Amanda's story.

And when someone is trying to kill you, and you don't know who it is, you can't rule out the agent you're in love with, right?

And when someone is trying to kill you, and you don't know who it is, you can't rule out the agent you're in love with, right? When the bullets start flying, who determines if you are the target or just collateral damage? What an amazing finale to this action-packed addictive serial told from Amada's POV. Now that she's come out of hiding, she fills us in on all the missing facts that led to her 3-year absence.Some previous events are recounted with additional details filled in, giving us a clearer picture of where her head was at when she made the decision to leave her job, and her heart. Amanda was raised by CIA parents. She's been in the life from birth. She was conditioned to sacrifice everything for her country, including her life. When a threat from her past resurfaces, she finds herself right back in the thick of danger. Willing to put herself in the line of fire to battle her enemies and to protect lives. But the evidence against her is strong, assuring that she's living on borrowed time once the benefit of her specialized skills is no longer needed. Will she be able to prove her innocence before the man she loves does what he's been ordered to do? "Seth is the Assassin. He is my poison." That's saying a lot since she's the 'Poison Princess' and she doesn't have an antidote for how he makes her feel. There's not a single formula in her lab that can take away the pain of losing him.As new players are introduced and more secrets revealed the suspense builds. Time is running out and danger is getting closer and closer as they scramble to learn the truth before it's too late. People from their past resurface and the facts become cloudy. What's true and what is staged to appear that way? Who can be trusted? Who will be left standing at the end of this epic finale? Does love really conquer all?Lisa has turned me into an espionage aficionado, keeping me on the edge of my seat, anxious to turn the next page while expecting the boogyman to jump out at me when I do. What a rush! I also kinda have a new crush I'd love to see more of. Fingers crossed there'll be more #Bear in my future. Should we start a petition? The line forms here...

Their story has been heartbreaking, torturous, electric, sizzling and revealing.

    Espionage, deadly poisons and dirty operations run amok in this finale of the Poison Kisses serial. This is seriously thrilling. With a sharp style and no room for hesitancy, the plot tightens to a suffocating point. Seth and Amanda break through the last issue between them. Trust becomes a hot, deep, tantalizing test that reinforces their relationship and surely made my breathing heavy. What a scene!The operation in motion reaches a crescendo, unburying the past in shocking ways.

Also, I'd love to read his own story and meet the woman who can handle all his glorious size. And Julie... what a phenomenal addition :-DThe threat to the population is handled through the skills and dedication of many minds working together. It shows the amount of thinking that was put into the investigation, how to link all the details and organize the threads into a coherent, smart and satisfying ending. I thought it would go differently, yet it was an interesting move. And the HEA is well deserved. I'm addicted to this bunch of action men. I hope there are more stories in this world.

CIA/FBI, espionage, assassins in all guises makes this entertaining read Poison Kisses (Complete Series) by Lisa Renee Jones3.5 stars!!!! “I don’t like unknowns. Ever. Unknowns mean trouble. And trouble gets you killed.” Poison Kisses is a three-part series, each book released a week apart and the concluding part released this week. This was one of those series where I had to read each instalment as soon as it hit my kindle and for the hour or so they take to read my eyes never left the pages. CIA/FBI, espionage, assassins in all guises makes this entertaining reading and certainly leaves the reader trying to read between the lines, distinguish the trusted from the untrustworthy and try and gauge if the good guys really can win. “Without trust, there are just enemies.” If you have read the Dirty Money series, you will have heard of Seth, as he was Shane’s right hand man and ex-CIA, and now Lisa Renee Jones has graced us with his own book. In the Dirty Money series, he was a bit of an enigma, extremely professional, well connected and seemed detached and impassive. It is only after reading this first instalment I truly appreciated just how cold he was, the CIA changes you, but being burnt and betrayed by your partner and your lover will do that to you too. “I don’t remember ever living in a perfect world for even one day of my life. There are just façades of perfection.” They say that you are never ex-CIA, even if you are and while Shane is on his honeymoon, Seth is recalled into the fold to follow, assist and maybe kill another ex-agent, who just so happens to be his ex-partner, his ex-lover, the woman that destroyed him for all others, an agent dubbed the Scientist or the Poison Princess…so it is only right they call upon the agent once named the Assassin. “You might be the Assassin, but I’m the Scientist. And if you think I’m not your match, think again.” When these two are re-united, both are well aware of the others objectives, neither trusts the other and yet the explosive chemistry that these two once shared is still prevalent in spades. But, they hate each other, but we all know there is a fine line between love and hate. “Amanda, for now, we’re on our way to save lives. And then we’re going to try to take each other’s. But I’m pretty damn sure we’re going to fuck a time or ten before we get there. Because that’s what you do to your enemies. You fuck them.” This series is action packed, fast paced and I feel skirts the realms of plausibility as far as FBI/CIA agents are concerned, but it makes for entertaining reading. I adore this authors writing style, but for me, this series could have done with being a little longer, certain parts explored greater in depth and the ending for me felt convenient and rushed. Over the previous two, and half of this instalment we had a fantastic build up and then it was all over while I blinked. Overall though, this series has been an entertaining read for people like me who love crime, mysteries and thrillers it certainly scratches the itch, but this was one of those itches that kept moving and the book series didn’t catch up. “I was always the Poison Princess to you, wasn’t I?”“You were my kind of poison.” However, as ever with a Lisa Renee Jones read the chemistry was palpable, the action between the sheets was incredibly hot and the dialogue was on point. The heart wants who the heart wants and despite a three year break the chemistry that these had is as prevalent as ever. While the sexual chemistry is reignited straight away it takes a while for the trust element to reignite, but these two work well together and I was glad that these two didn’t just pick up from where they left off. They re-build, but as I said above I felt a little more depth here would have gone a long way. Overall though a very thrilling read. “Don’t do that to us…Don’t do that to me.” www.theromancecover.com

After the bomb that was dropped in Part Two, I was crazy excited to see how the conclusion of this series would play out.In Part Three, we finally get Amanda’s point of view after being in Seth’s head during the last two books. Seeing the betrayal through her eyes kicks things up a notch. She wants to pull the trigger but she wants answers more. She also needs to complete the mission before innocent lives are lost and time is not on her side. She knows they must work together more now than ever if they are going stop Dr. Ross but it's not going to be easy.I like being in Amanda’s head. She’s a mess after seeing evidence that turns her world upside down, but she is stronger and braver than ever. I love that she acknowledges her vulnerabilities and accepts them while diving headfirst into the action.  The conflicted feelings she experiences are intense, overwhelming, and completely understandable. Seth is there for her through all the pain, and I loved that he fought to bring back the trust that was broken and the love they thought died. His unconditional support is what she needs to move on from the past and he proves to her that they belong together. This man is the Mr. Jones to my Mrs. Jones those around us believe us to be, but he has become so much more. He is my best friend and the man I love when I swore I’d never fall in love, for too many reasons to list. Seth is still a complete badass and I love how he takes control of the mission. He does what he needs to do and kicks ass when getting the job done. "I'm CIA. We do whatever we want and say we didn't." With Amanda’s flashbacks we get a clearer picture of what happened and we finally get the answers we so desperately wanted. The way the story unfolded was full of suspense, mystery, and excitement. There were twists I didn’t see coming and though I enjoyed the ending, I thought it wrapped up a little to neatly, resolving quickly and too easily as they got their HEA. However, new information is given at the very end leaving the story with room to continue.  I am curious to see if Lisa Renee Jones will take things further and I hope she revisits Seth and Amanda, especially because they like to be in the thick of things and there are always other action packed missions.*ARC generously provided by the author via NetGalley*

In this part of the story they bring in many players to help them close this case and get all the answers they are looking for. Amanda is telling the story from her POV and we get to see what is inside her mind. This part of the story has all the action and intrigue you can count on it to have. Seth helps Amanda see who she truly can be and how being with him makes both stronger. Their love is all encompassing, and you could only wish to have something like that. There is no cliffhanger here and all your questions will be answered when you go out to read the final part of Poison Kisses. They are in a battle to stay ahead of their enemy in this part and they both show us what they are made of. Here is when they build up their relationship by sharing themselves with one another and putting their trust in each other. Who doesn’t love a romance where the two main characters get a second chance to have the relationship they were meant to have. Even though we get some romance we also get some mystery, suspense, and action with a dirty talking couple to keep us entertained throughout the rest of the story. Lisa gives us a wonderful climax to Seth and Amanda’s journey and I hope you enjoy it as well. You will not be disappointed when you read this part because you will see Seth and Amanda come full circle.

What a lovely way to remember a beloved pet...giving her life in a book. I loved this.

Part three in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’ serial Poison Kisses gives us an explosive and unexpected conclusion.Amanda and Seth are now running for their lives. Unable to trust that one isn’t trying to kill the other, they stick close as they unravel and piece together this convoluted puzzle. Who’s telling the truth, and what happens when everything reaches the light of day?We finally get to know where Amanda has been for the past three years. Where she was hiding and what she was doing. And we get it in her own voice. That’s right this one is in Amanda’s POV and as much as I love Seth, I was happy and excited to learn more about the Poison Princess. I highly recommend reading this serial back to back, unless you want to torture yourself. This was intense, full of action and espionage, and a whole lot of heat. Lots of twists and turns, betrayals and a heck of a lot of lies. Overall this has been one awesome ride. Here’s to hoping that a certain secondary character gets his story told also. Four stars.

    Seth and Amanda knows what’s at stake when it comes to protecting their country. Now knowing betrayal wasn’t as what it seemed, they come together to figure out who was behind it all and to save lives while saving each other. “We’re alone without each other, even when other people are in the room. And while I used to believe that alone was good, alone was safe, you don’t know alone until you’ve been something other than alone. And after three years of knowing alone intimately without him, I now Seth and Amanda knows what’s at stake when it comes to protecting their country.

And that means I can’t save him without being with him. And he can’t save me without being with me.”I loved this story! It had pulled me in from the get go. Their vulnerability whether it was in his voice or hers was real and it put me through the ringer! Just gave me all the feels!Can’t wait for more!Reviewed by Shay from Mommys a Book Whore

    Part Three“Those you love, know how to hurt you. Those you love, know what to hide, because they know what is unforgivable to you.”In the conclusion of Poison Kisses Part Three by Lisa Renee Jones, everything finally comes together. This picks up immediately where two left off, a gun wielding Amanda ready to kill Seth for lying to her, and him rushing to explain that they were once again being set up. This installment is told from Amanda’s POV, and it was intriguing to see what she was thinking, Part Three“Those you love, know how to hurt you.

This picks up immediately where two left off, a gun wielding Amanda ready to kill Seth for lying to her, and him rushing to explain that they were once again being set up. This installment is told from Amanda’s POV, and it was intriguing to see what she was thinking, especially since it was her life being destroyed.I thoroughly enjoyed the action packed tale of betrayal and lies, as we hoped The Assassin and Poison Princess could beat the clock. While I am not a fan of the story being split into three parts, matter of fact I’ll have to pass in the future, I did enjoy the intensity and heat of this one. Overall, the ARC of the story was thought out, it was fast paced espionage at its finest, and Seth and Amanda had some great chemistry.

    I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Lisa Renee Jones!What a finale. After so many questions, we finally know what happened! As you read the book, you form hypotheses that will be countered over and over until the truth cones out and surprises you.I kind of wish the resolution had more bang, but it is a neat and complete one, completely in line with how agents like to work. So despite it not being a huge bang, it is a fitting one.In true Jones f I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Lisa Renee Jones!What a finale.

It creates depth, and makes us nostalgic, reminiscing the other characters’ stories. Lastly, I am actually quite fond of this format. The three short of parts, is appealing and innovative. Definitely a fun read!

Both POVs (Seth and Amanda's) further intrigue us into finding out the answers to all the questions and secrets. Great thriller with an ending that leaves us wanting more.I am voluntarily reviewing these books. I thank the author for sharing a copy with me.

    ** Part 3 Review : 5 BRILLIANT STARS ** Out of the three books, this is probably my favorite. Not just because the truth was finally revealed, but because I get to read Seth being humanized by a cat and it's just beautiful to see a strong, ruthless man turn wanton for the woman he loves. Also, my crush for Amanda is real, her intelligence and strength was what drew me in the first place, she brings kickass to a whole new level and I couldn't even imagine a more perfect match for Seth.

    Oh wow! I knew when I finished part 1 and immediately picked up part 2 and then in the same day picked up this one it was going to be good but WOW this one was the best of the three! Part 3 pretty much concentrates on Amanda's side of the story and we finally figure out what is going on and wrap it up with a nice bow. I was quite satisfied with the ending and, thank you Lisa for leaving it open for Seth and Amanda to eventually go on assignment if you want to take them there. **Received this ARC Oh wow!

    They have one common goal. Survival! Happiness seems out of their hands, but temptation is an ever constant companion. Can their killer instinct survive their heart's desire? The danger is real. The attraction is strong and the heartache can be deadly. Cliff jumping is an adrenaline rush but a dangerous past time. Therein lies the thrill. Poison Kisses is a risky endeavor, but a rewarding experience.

    Amanda never imagined ever seeing Seth Cage again. In her mind, she'd left him behind years ago. The fact that he's in her life against isn't lost on her. She needs him, even if she's not willing to admit it. From the moment she laid eyes on him, he stirred her baser desires. To make matters worse, her mind, her heart, and her body still want him. A mutual goal and the attempts on her life have brought them together again. Deep inside, she knows she should have walked away, yet she can't deny th Amanda never imagined ever seeing Seth Cage again. In her mind, she'd left him behind years ago. The fact that he's in her life against isn't lost on her. She needs him, even if she's not willing to admit it. From the moment she laid eyes on him, he stirred her baser desires. To make matters worse, her mind, her heart, and her body still want him. A mutual goal and the attempts on her life have brought them together again. Deep inside, she knows she should have walked away, yet she can't deny that she still has feelings for him. Feelings that grow with every second that passes.Man, each book in this series surpasses the next. I'm loving it! Book 2 gave us more of Seth's and Amanda's back story. It allowed us to see more into their pasts and the present that now exists between them. This book tidies up the loose threads that existed, giving them a chance to shape a better future for themselves.It's wonderful to see how far these two characters have come. They've had the odds stacked against them from the moment they met. The two of them never imagined how much their worlds would change in the blink of an eye. They've been fighting for what they believe in, hoping to make their world and that of those they love a better place.It's wonderful to see just how much all of these characters have changed. I don't think it's the last time we'll see of them either. Lisa has so much to share when it comes to this complex world she's built. I've a feeling she'll be bringing us new and better stories when the time comes. Definitely anxious to see what else will become of these characters and this beautiful world.

It was fast-paced, exciting, sexy and intense. The series overall gets 4 stars. I just found that the novella format of this series chopped it up to much. It just never really flowed smoothly.
