Ex-special forces, Jacob King, is a man who keeps to himself, having learned the hard way that letting people close to you, trusting them, might just get you killed. A lesson he learned when members of his Special Ops team turned dirty, while others, men he considered friends, died. He made them pay. He made them hurt. He put them in jail. And so he doesn't trust anyone anymore. He keeps his women hot and fast, his friends few to none, and his clients through the elite Walker Security at a professional distance, but safe.

It works for him. Until it doesn't.

His newest job should be simple and cut and dry. Jewel Carpenter, the daughter of the CEO of Carpenter Enterprises, is receiving death threats. He's to protect her and find out who is issuing the treats.

Simple. Cut and Dry.

Until it's not.

Until the chemistry between he and Jewel is all about love, hate, and sex. But even as he fights the attraction to Jewel and discovers there is more to her than meets the eye, the real threat comes not from the threats she's receiving, but the connection she has to him. Because his past has come full circle, and those men he's made pay for their sins now want him to pay. And what better way than the woman in his bed?

Couldn't wait to be done with this book. Very little action. Kept waiting for something to happen but never did.

When Jacob King was hired to protect Jewel Carpenter, it was just another job. Until it wasn't. The sexual tension between them made it hard for Jacob to keep his mind on his job. But, skilled as he was, he was determined to keep her safe. Keeping his hands off her was another matter altogether. Being a detective, Jewel didn't think she needed protection. Her attitude made her hard to like. Jacob, on the other hand, was not hard to like at all. He's the perfect alpha male. Except he was a bit distant in the beginning. There was lots of steamy sex in this mystery. Sometimes there was too much when those scenes were more detailed than the mystery. I was surprised to learn who the killer was. 3.5 stars

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. I absolutely loved this latest book in the Walker Security series. This one is about Jacob King who first made an appearance in the In And Out series. He is now working full time with the Walker family. He is assigned to protect Jewel Carpenter who is a detective on the police force and has received threats that seem to indicate she has a stalker. Her father is the CEO/owner of a pharmaceutical company and it is not known whether the threats are directed at him at first or at his daughter to get to him. Jacob is a no nonsense kind of guy. He takes his job seriously and sometimes appears very stoic. Both Jewel and Jacob guard their feelings and feel they can interfere with their jobs. The two are also very aware of the connection they have from the very beginning. Eventually they can not fight the attraction they have for one another even in the midst of all that is happening around them. This book is filled with action suspense, mystery, danger, and a very steamy and hot couple. I could not put this book down. I wanted to know what would happen next and who was the man that was after Jewel. I was blown away when it was finally revealed . I would say this is one of my top favorite Walker Security books. It was very well written, as all of Ms Jones' books are and I love the way the book has equal parts drama/suspense and a really good romance story. Jewel and Jacob had great chemistry. Great HEA!

So let's be real. The Walker brothers are sin on a stick. They are sexy and are experts in the alpha department. So when I started the Walker security series (a spin off) I did not think it would compare to the Tall, Dark, and Deadly series. Can we say now that I have finished Falling Under, I am on sexy alpha over load! Imagine this, both hero and heroine are the two most controlling people I have read. Usually this does not work in a relationship or in a book. But, Lisa has worked her magic and the story needed these two characters. Jewel and Jacob just work. What I love about these series is the mystery and drama. You get the hot and heavy sexy time, but you also get a good old fashion mind game. I love when I read and I need to figure out how the story will play out in the end. As always, I am always wrong in Lisa's books. I need that! The rest of the team for Walker Security is in the story. Blake is my man and I was excited when he made his appearance. Jacob comes in as a close secondary favorite. Oh what the heck, he and Black are tied. I adored Jewel and commend her for her bravery. The end of the story had me at a loss for words. I loved it all! Falling Under is a thrill you can not get enough of! The level of sexiness is off the charts! If you have followed this series, this book gives it justice. This can also be read as a standalone. But I highly suggest to read the rest of the books too. You need these sexy alpha males in your life!

I was sure I was going to love Jacob King when I met him in the last book but I didn't realize how much I was going to love him until I got to know him in this one. There is something about a quiet, hard, ex-green beret who will literally take a bullet to save your life. That is something a homicide detective who catches killers for a living and now has someone focused on her is not finding easy to live with. These two together is something else. They both demand control. Control of themselves, their lives, and those around them. They are put together when Jewel's dad hires the Walker Security Agency because of threats and Jacob is assigned to her. Sparks fly from the beginning but there is something about these two that clicks and sparks lead to smoke and chemistry and combustible fun. Twists and turns and danger abounds and I could not turn the pages fast enough. This was a fast read and a fun read and definitely recommend this one. This could be read as a standalone if you really wanted to and not be lost a bit. **Received this ARC for review**

Every Walker Security story just makes me love them more!! Although I will admit that I had a bit of a bias against Jacob. I knew someone from Kindergarten though high school named Jacob King who was a HUGE D-bag. So I was not a fan of Jacob at first but him and his muscley, ex-Green Beret protector self won me over. So this Jacob King got a pass. Jewel is AWESOME! She's a tough, strong, doesn't put up with attitude awesome detective. Being a detective has been what she's wanted to do for years, after she's had tragedy hit her family. But after some threatening notes get sent to her father about her, she now has Walker Security keeping her and her dad safe and Jacob as her new shadow. Lisa Renee Jones has a way of writing a story that sucks me in, intrigues me and has enough chemistry to keep things hot! Definitely one of my favorite authors!!

4.25 stars-- 4.25 stars--FALLING UNDER is the third full length installment in Lisa Renee Jones’s contemporary, adult WALKER SECURITY romantic suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Walker Security- a spin off from her Tall, Dark and Deadly series. This is ex-Special Forces Green Beret Jacob King, and NYPD Detective Jewel Carpenter’s story line. FALLING UNDER can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Jacob and Jewel) FALLING UNDER follows the building relationship between ex-Special Forces Green Beret soldier Jacob King, and NYPD Detective Jewel Carpenter. Two years earlier, following the murder of her uncle and fellow detective Jonathan Carpenter Jewel found herself the target of an unknown stalker. Fast forward to present day, wherein the threats against our story line heroine begin to increase including some not so subtle ‘gifts’ left behind as a reminder of the past. Enter Jacob King, Walker Security specialist, and the man with whom Jewel will fall in love. What ensues is the building romance between Jewel and Jacob, and the potential fall out as Jewel follows a cold-case file that leads back to the man that she loves. Jewel Carpenter is the primary detective in a recent murder investigation of a missing pregnant woman and her unborn child, an investigation that pushes our heroine headlong into a life and death situation where her safety is concerned. The arrival of Jacob King, a security specialist from Walker Security, finds Jewel looking into a series of cold-case files that Jacob insists are better off, left to their own. The relationship between Jewel and Jacob begins acrimoniously as Jewel refuses to accept that her life is in danger from an outside source but saying that Jewel is all too aware that someone knows quite a bit of personal information about the past including the murders of her best friend, her mother, and the uncle with whom she once worked. Jacob knows to get involved with a client could mean compromising his position with Walker Security but something about Jewel calls to our hero’s heart-a heart he hasn’t allowed to beat for a very long time. Protecting Jewel 24/7 means keeping his distance is next to impossible. The $ex scenes are intimate, passionate and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Blake and Royce Walker, and their spouses Kara and Lauren (Tall, Dark and Deadly Series); Asher and Sierra (Pulled Under #2);Walker Security agents Rick Savage; former Chicago detective Finn, and ex-Navy SEAL Adam. We are also introduced to Jewels father, owner and operator of Carpenter Pharmaceuticals; NYPD Detective Rodriguez, and defense attorney Davis York. FALLING UNDER is a story of romance, suspense, betrayal and love. The premise is intriguing and compelling; the romance is energetic and seductive; the characters are colorful, charismatic and engaging. Lisa Renee Jones will captivate your attention with the latest instalment in her intoxicating Walker Security Series.

Falling Under is another amazing Thriller Romance taking place at Walker Security. Jacob is ex special operations and now part of the Walker team. He is compared to a robot. He has a permanent poker face and never shows emotions. Until now! Jewel doesn't allow anyone to get close to her to avoid pain. Everyone she loves die. She is pretty fearless and taking down bad guys is her main interest. Being self sufficient, Jewel doesn't welcome the idea of having Jacob as her shadow. She is receiving threatening messages and his job is to protect her. Something he excels at. Although, she has no choice in the matter, she doesn't intend to make it easy for him as she thinks that he is too pompous. Here begins the battle of wits! They are two of a kind. Despite their disagreements and what could be perceived as hate, there is an unquestionable connection between them. They both try to resist, but it's futile. It's far too strong and they eventually give in. What happens between them is explosive. In the meantime, the threats become more worrying and not knowing the source is unsettling. They have to be vigilant at all times and each time they think they are getting somewhere, something else materialises. To complicate matters, Jewel's past catches up with him and more danger is afoot. Their relationship is put to the test and it's either make or break! This complex story is full of surprises. The plot is intricately and cleverly carved. The characters are well portrayed. It's thrilling, hot, passionate and romantic. I absolutely love Jacob and Jewel. As usual, the Walker Clan delivers and leaves me wanting to see more of them. Exceptional! I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.
