Emma Knight is standing at a crossroad in her life. She had
always been the dutiful daughter to her father, but after
his death, she finds a journal that tells her he wasn't the
man she thought he was. He wasn't the man anyone thought he
was. Well, perhaps ONE MAN knew the truth.
Jax North wants to know the truth about his brother's death.
He knows the Knight family had something to do with it and
he will find out what it was and destroy them. Until he
comes face to face with Emma. She is not at all what he had
expected. He knew she was beautiful, but she seems so
innocent and so wise all mixed together. Now, besides his
vengeance for his brother's death, he wants to be the ONE
MAN in her life.
ONE MAN is an intense and amazing beginning to a trilogy
that promises only to get better. Emma, besides her father's
secrets, has secrets of her own, that she will fight to keep
hidden. Jax wants answers, and he wants Emma, simple and as
complicated as that. Even he isn't sure what to do about it,
because he knows that if he continues his quest, she might
be caught up in the middle of the explosion. He also must
face the fact that his lust for Emma may be overruling his
brain and she is in the middle of the whole thing after all
- then can he destroy her along with the Knight name.
With a journal filled with so much that destroyed all good
thoughts she has about her father, a man she shouldn't
trust, another who wants to own her again and so many people
to distrust, Emma will have to go with her instinct and that
tells her that Jax is the ONE MAN she can trust. She won't
be controlled again; they will either work together as
partners to find the truth or she will walk.
ONE MAN is a fascinating look into the rich lifestyle, with
enemy/friends and deceit and distrust as part of the norm.
It is nice to see real friends pop up as does our favorite
savant Eric Mitchell (from the Filthy
trilogy); and (Rick) Savage from Walker
Security whom Jax hires to protect them and find out the
secrets, so many want to keep hidden.
ONE MAN does have a cliffhanger, as do most of author Lisa
Renee Jones' trilogies. This one has Emma facing the same
danger that befell Jax's brother, but we know with ONE
WOMAN coming out in Sept. her ending will be different.
Action, danger, drama, truth, lies, twisted people, and a
romance that defies odds fill the pages of ONE MAN and
should hold readers over until the second book arrives.
One man can change everything. That man can touch you until
you tremble all over. That man can wake you up and allow you
to breathe when life leaves you unable to catch your breath.
For me that ONE MAN is Jax North. He's handsome, brutally
so, and wealthy, money and power easily at his fingertips.
He's dark, and yet, he can make me smile with a single look
or word. He's a force when he walks into a room.
Our first encounter is intense, overwhelmingly intense. I go
with it. I go with him and how can I not? He's that ONE MAN
for me and what a ride it is. But there are things about me
that he doesn't know, he can't know, so 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 trying. He wants me. I
don't want to want him, and yet, I crave him. 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. I forget that there are reasons I canâ€™t be with Jax
North. I forget that once he knows, everything will change.
