    Poison Kisses Part 2 starts off right where Part 1 ended. Amanda’s mother’s voice mail still hangs in the air between her and Seth. Sometimes taking a step forward requires taking two steps back.

But soon secrets are revealed and hidden truths are finally discovered and these two seem to finally get on the same page. Together, they become a force to be reckoned with and their Poison Kisses Part 2 starts off right where Part 1 ended. Amanda’s mother’s voice mail still hangs in the air between her and Seth.

    Poison Kisses by Lisa Renee Jones is Book Two in the 'Poison Kisses" series. This continues the story of Amanda Skye and Seth Cage. Since this is the second part to their story you really should read the previous book 'Poison Kisses Part 1'. This book does start right where the last one left off. Amanda and Seth are still trying to deal with their feelings of attraction and mistrust...but they still have to work together. Really enjoying their story!

    This was a great 2nd part to the series. I read it in one sitting and was absolutely dying to start the next part when I was finished. Their relationship grows fire hot in this installment and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. I have no idea how long this part was, but it read really fast and I felt like it was over in no time at all.I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

Sleazy dealings and bloody terrorists tangle with hot reconciliation, all in that suspenseful and calculated style that the author masters. I truly love how she deals with stormy feelings while describing passionate lovemaking. Gorgeous!And the cliffhanger in this installment is just awesome, heart-wrenching and oh so thrilling.

Bringing more suspicion and resentment.Once again, it was really repetitive. The answers came a little too late but the ending was definitely more interesting.

    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 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

It cannot be read as a standalone and contains spoilers for Poison Kisses: Part One.Part Two picks up immediately after Part One ends. We now know and understand why Amanda disappeared and are left with several questions. Even though Seth and Amanda still feel the betrayal from before, the lust and love that is still between them is heating up. But before they can deal with their past, they need to figure out how to focus on taking down Dr. Franklin Ross.When the book begins, the anger and hurt between Seth and Amanda is still very much alive and gaining each other’s trust seems like an impossible feat. However, as they open up to each other two different sides unfold and we slowly see the pieces of the past come together. The mystery and suspense is captivating and I wanted desperately to know why things happened the way they did, who Seth and Amanda can trust, and who lurks in the background as new players seem to enter the game.Trying to stop Dr. Ross puts Amanda and Seth together in intimate quarters and feelings from the past are front and center as they try to work through their complicated relationship. The sexual tension is palpable and there is no way they can deny the pull they’ve felt from the moment they met. The spark that once exploded between them years ago is now just as intense, passionate, and present as ever. “Yes,” she whispers and then we’re kissing, crazy-hot kissing, drinking each other in, like we’re never going to get a drink again. And maybe we won’t. Maybe one of us will die before this night is over. But that’s how we always fucked and loved. Like there would be no tomorrow. I loved the way Seth and Amanda open up and the commitment to making their relationship work; however, just like in Part One, there is a major cliffhanger at the end that screws up everything. Up until this point we have seen Seth’s side of the story first-hand from his point-of-view. After the jaw-dropping bomb that is delivered, we are left questioning everything and Amanda needs answers. Finally, we will get to see Amanda’s point-of-view in the conclusion to the Poison Kisses trilogy. Part Three here I come!Just a little side note: I love the way Lisa Renee Jones does a recap of the series so far as more books are released. It refreshes your memory so you can dive into the next book without forgetting what happened before.*ARC generously provided by the author via NetGalley*

Fortunately, for those of us that have read several books since then, the author gives her readers a recap to get our heads in the right place as we pick up right where we left off. That's right, with our jaw dropped.Amanda & Seth have been separated for three years. When she left, she disappeared, and even he couldn't find her using his considerable skills and contacts. She wasn't found until she was ready to be found. And when they saw each other again, they discovered that their passion for each other had not diminished in the least. But their trust had taken a hit. They went from lovers to enemies to lovers, but what about the love? Could that be salvaged along with the trust? In trying to determine who the bad guys are, they couldn't exclude themselves, the Assassin and the Poison Princess. When the evidence is against them, how do they decide who's telling the truth? Does the heart lie?Talk about a major cliffhanger, this one is a doozy. I'm again left with my jaw hanging and my heart pounding. I admit that it was my love for this author's work that had me willing to read whatever she decided to write, not even caring what trope she tackled. But I find myself completed invested and digging this James Bond style of espionage. The secrets and suspense, the danger and drama, the mystery and mayhem are addictive and I'm ready for the next installment. See ya there.

Just as the start to trust each other, new things come up and suspicion is back.As we get glimpses into their past, it's clear that they love each other and it's still clear in the present. Both of them are fighting their natural instincts that make them who they are in order to attempt to try to trust the other. Yet again, just as I think we are about to get some answers or are in a better place, we are left hanging. I don't mind the push and pull between the two. I can understand being hurt in the past and trying to recover from that an move on with that same person in the future. For me, it makes me want to root harder for them.So here I am now, anxiously waiting for the last installment so I can find out what is going to happen.

She betrayed Danny. She may well have betrayed her country and still, I fucking love her as much as I hate her. And what I taste on her lips is accusation. She kisses me like I’m the man who betrayed her.

    The pieces are falling into place. They are falling, but whether or not they are falling into place has still yet to be determined. The second installment of Poison Kisses from Lisa Renee Jones picks up right where the first left off… the ominous voice mail from mom. Dun, dun, dun. Thrown back into the height of betrayal and half truths between The Assassin and The Poison Princess. Secrets, suspense, lies, and passion. Will Amanda Skye and Seth Cage ever get answers?

    Seth never contended with the chaos Amanda Skye left behind so long ago. Despite the fact that he's still nursing old hurts, he's doing his best to complete the mission at hand. Her constant presence is a reminder of what they used to be. She tempts him more ways than one. If they're to succeed in ending what they started years ago, they're going to have set aside the animosity that still exists between them. As if that's not enough, they'll have to overcome the hunger and the constant attractio Seth never contended with the chaos Amanda Skye left behind so long ago. Despite the fact that he's still nursing old hurts, he's doing his best to complete the mission at hand. Her constant presence is a reminder of what they used to be. She tempts him more ways than one. If they're to succeed in ending what they started years ago, they're going to have set aside the animosity that still exists between them. As if that's not enough, they'll have to overcome the hunger and the constant attraction that flares whenever they're together.Continuing where book one leaves off, part 2 doesn't disappoint. Things between Seth and Amanda have escalated. The chaos is still ongoing, though they're doing their best to maintain a level head. These two characters have so much going against them, yet they're determined in overcoming their adversities. Mind you, they don't quite trust each other, but they're willing to try when it comes to achieving a means to their own ends.It's wonderful to be able to see old characters and new coexist. It makes me want to revisit previous stories and embrace these characters all over again. Such is this large world that Lisa keeps adding to every day. We get to learn more and more about what makes each of them tick. Not only that, but she branches out more on the trials and tribulations each has encountered throughout their pasts. In doing so, she conveniently ties up any loose ends that have been left behind.Although Seth and Amanda's worlds have been turned topsy-turvy, it's wonderful to see that the passion they once shared still exists between them. They're working toward a mutual cause. One that will save the world and those they love when the time comes.Will they achieve their goals? Who knows? Nevertheless, I can't wait to see what happens next.

    If you know anything about Lisa Renee Jones' work, you know that you truly know very little. You can guess, you can theorize,and you can hypothesize but you will never be 100% certain. Poison Kisses is no different. Seth Cage is running the show...or is he. Handlers, poisons, and killers oh my! What's the truth, what happened three years ago, and why now?I have no idea but I'm dying to find out!!!reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood

    ~Received a copy from the author through Netgalley for an honest review ~Part 2 begins right from where the first part has ended, with Seth and Amanda on their way to their new assignment. As expected, this part of Seth's POV, is as high as the first one. Full of action, suspense, questions and of course the never ending doubt between the two agents. I can't wait to see how it ends between these two.For once I wish this was a whole book, and not a three part story.

    This one picks up right where part 1 leaves off so if you haven't read it then you must read it first. Amanda and Seth have major trust issues however they are trying to move forward. I absolutely love the ride they are on. I am really rooting for them to decide to love and trust versus being enemies and having to kill each other, but man what a freaking cliffhanger that ending was. Lisa Renee Jones keeps you on the edge of your seat and keeps you guessing.

    For Sage and Amanda the pieces are falling into place. For readers, Ms. Jones amps up the chase. The complications become more extreme as the danger gets more intense. Lurking in the shadows are the answers they seek, they just may have come to late. The Poison Kisses series provides edge of the seat seduction, that leaves the mind spinning, heart racing and readers craving more.
