Chris and Sara from Inside Out return in the explosive finale to Ella's story from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones with the third book in the sexy, suspenseful Careless Whispers series.

Passion burns fiercely hot between Ella Ferguson and Kayden Wilkens, the man who held secrets and lies in his hands, and then allowed them to fall into hers. But even though he has become her anchor—helping her recover from amnesia after finding her unconscious in an alley, and allowing her into his secret world—all is not what it seems. Kayden still has secrets, and pieces of Ella's past are still shrouded in the darkness of her mind, while the powerful man who hunts her will not stop until she is his. In this final, explosive novel in the Careless Whispers series, Ella discovers that while her life with Kayden didn't begin in that dark alley...it could easily end there.

Surrender By: Lisa Renee Jones 5 Star Review by Kristie K Lisa Renee Jones brings you to your knees in Surrender, a masterful work of suspense, intrigue, betrayal, and passion… In the third and final installment of the Careless Whispers series, Lisa Renee Jones brings us to the brink of death and holds us on the edge of our seats for another twisting, tangled web of lies, deceit, and intrigue. The story picks up exactly where Demand left off, the mystery deepening with every memory Ella recovers. For every answer Ella and Kayden find, there are even more questions. When the endgame hovers ever closer, another betrayal throws them into more danger. Around every corner is a new threat, another question, and even less answers. When Ella’s friend Sara becomes involved, the stakes are higher than ever, and someone will die… Holy Hades, this book was amazing! As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am a HUGE sucker for a good mystery. Some people (my husband) call me the giant question mark, because I am always trying to solve the problem and find the answers. I have been completely and utterly hooked on the Careless Whispers series since the first book, Denial, was released. Ms. Jones was able to flawlessly weave a tangled web of lies, betrayal, truth, passion, love, and danger. Throw in an irresistible bad boy with a good heart, and a gorgeous woman with the strength of ten men…and you have perfection. I absolutely adored every word of this series, and Surrender was no exception. I truly hope that we get another glimpse into the lives of these characters that we have come to know, and love. Thank you, Ms. Jones, for another excellent novel…I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next. Kristie K

I loved, loved, loved this series and this book. Watching Ella's memory return in bits and pieces was amazing! Plus, I too was wondering where the necklace was hidden. And re-introducing Sara and Chris into the story was genius. Hoping that there is a sequel with the wedding!

Surrender is the conclusion to Ella and Kayden's story, and wow what a story it turned out to be, it left me breathless more times than I can remember! All of the lingering questions about their pasts will be answered and of course it is packed with the edge of your seat intensity that only Ms. Jones can provide! I loved every single minute of the enticing trilogy, it really had it all, intrigue, edge of your action, toe curling romance, .... I mean seriously you name it and you will find it in the pages of these three amazing books! Highly recommend Ella and Kayden's story it is sure to have you blushing one minute, and gasping for your next breath the next... it is SO GOOD!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. (

A spine-tingling romantic suspense that had me at the edge of my seat with its fantastic mix of sizzling chemistry and romance, deception and danger, and a bad@$$ heroine that should not be missed. As head of the underground Hunter organization, Kayden Wilkens, had many secrets until Ella. He found her under in a dark alley with severe amnesia. He knew she’s the key to finding a three billion dollar necklace several powerful and evil men are after. He never expected to fall in love with her while she was in his care, but as she struggles to regain her memory she’s also found a place in his heart and in his dangerous life. There are no more secrets between them, but can he keep her safe from the perils of his world? As Ella Ferguson finds refuge, love and passion in the arms of Kayden she also finds the will to take charge of her life alongside of him, memories intact or not. Those memories though are not just key to finding the valuable necklace, but also vital for her and her best friend’s survival and victory over the madman who wants to own both the necklace and Ella. I was captivated by this series from start to finish. So much uncertainty shrouding Ella, so many things hinged on her recovering her memories, just so much anticipation for the final instalment of this trilogy which Lisa Renee Jones delivers in this sensual and fast paced story that reveal shocking twists, turns and truths. Surrender continues where Demand left off with non-stop action. Two warring stepbrothers and mafia lords have Ella in their sights, one just wants her to help him get his hands on the butterfly necklace but Neuville of the French mob, who had previously imprisoned her, wants the necklace and Ella and he’ll stop at nothing, corrupting the seemingly incorruptible and sparing no lives to get what he wants. Making Kayden maneuver the Underground to take down bad guys while Ella has a sinking suspicion they can only count on each other to do so. To make matters worse her best friend Sara has landed on European soil with her husband, putting them too close to danger. On the romance side, I loved how Ella and Kayden’s bond keeps getting stronger, how much they both have come to trust each other despite their rocky beginning. They still have a part of Ella’s past to contend with but they’re both committed to move forward in their relationship and protect one another no matter what comes at them. Together they’re explosively hot and deliciously sweet and confirming that Ella is as kick @$s as we suspected in the previous book and them some is an added bonus. This last book in the trilogy had many loose ends to tie which it did. With its complex nature involving the Italian and French mafia, politics and politicians, and the Underground itself, the author skillfully leads the reader through this thrilling ride, thankfully recapitulating on previous events and characters while pulling back layer upon layer that had me flipping pages like a crazy person.

An epic love story of Ella and Kaden. With lots of twists and turns and definitely quite a few surprises. This book is by far one of the best books I've ever read. This series is one of suspense and dread and surprises and ends with love. M Mitchell

The story continues in Europe where Ella, who is recovering from a blow to her head that caused amnesia, and Kayden, who is the leader of the European Underground located in Italy, are tested both physically and emotionally beyond anyone's normal endurance! It is their love, friendship and compassion for each other that allows them to function as a team against all the monsters that are after them. Sara and Chris Merit from the Inside Out series, where we first met Ella, and Blake Walker, from the Tall, Dark and Deadly series, are also intertwined with Ella in this novel. Is Ella really CIA as her recovered memories seem to indicate? Is Kayden being totally honest and straightforward with her about the Underground? Can Ella really be the Hunter her recovered memories indicate she is? Will she finally discover and confront the man that killed her father? These and all your questions will be answered in Surrender! Enjoy the ride. Your heart may just be able to take it! Linda-Rose

From the very first page of Denial to the last page in Surrender, Lisa Renee Jones has written a story that will draw you in and captivate your heart. Ms. Jones has the ability to make her readers feel every emotion that her characters are going through. You feel as if you have been transported into the story and all you can do is going along for the ride. Surrender is a fast-paced, action-packed, suspense story full of mystery, danger, passion, unexpected twists, love, and so much more. Questions to all your answers from the previous books will finally be answered. I volunteered to review an advanced readers copy of this book.

If you like suspense, this series is a must read! This is the third book in the series and you must read the first two in sequential order. They both end on a cliffhanger and this is the conclusion. I was so drawn into this series. It was definitely one that kept me guessing on who was good and who wasn't. Who should Ella trust? Could she even trust herself? I was questioning everybody! I mean all that she really knew for sure that she was in love with Kayden but was that going to be enough when the truth comes out? What exactly is the truth? Is it what her memories are showing her or what people are telling her? Will she gain her full memory back before it's too late? I really like Ella, she's not to be underestimated in any circumstance. When the chips are down will she be able to do what needs to be done before time runs out??? Loved this series!

This books was given to me by a friend when I was on bed rest, it was an AMAZING read. I loved it from the beginning and could not put it down. The development of the story to give you just enough background to the story, but still leave some big questions open for you to think about as you continue to read this book. Sara is a high school teacher who believes she is happy in her life as is until she finds a journal that was left in a storage unit that her friend bought in a "storage wars" sale. She reads this journal and what is in it is very personal and at first she feels she should not be reading these. Rebecca it seems is involved in a dominate/submissive relationship and is struggling with if she should stay or continue to "lose" herself. Sara continues to read the journal and then finds more in the storage unit. She fears for Rebecca, the owner of the journal and what happened to her. In the process of reading these journals she decides she needs to find out what happened to Rebecca and starts the process of looking into her personal information to see what she can find out. Sara is able to track down her last place of employment an art gallery. Sara lands a job, in fact taking over Rebecca's old job for the summer. As Sara is excited to be working her dream job in the art world, she also is trying to figure out who the people are that Rebecca writes of in her journals and what really happened to her. In the process she meets several men that could be Rebecca's Master. As she tries to piece together where Rebecca is she meets an artist, Chris Merit and is attracted to him. He tells her that is not right for her, but she can't stay away. There are twists and turns and a cliffhanger at the end, but it is great ride into book one of this FANTASTIC series!

Exquisite, Explosive ending with secrets and darkness all around. Passion burns fiercely Hot between Ella And Kayden, but exposing her past might steal everything they think they are to one another. Will she survive against the monster in her flashbacks, or will this powerful man be victorious in his pursuit of Ella. “Win at all costs, or die forgotten”. I was Captivated from the first page of this series. Sinfully sexy and darkly beautiful, Lisa Renee Jones weaves a stealthy sensual, twisted game of cat and mouse that sucked me in completely and had me turning the pages faster and faster. Nothing is as it seems. Trust no one but yourself. Fantastic writing, story, characters, build pace, everything. As much as I didn’t want it to end, as much as I didn’t want to say goodbye, it really was the perfect ending. All the feeling and connections pouring through, made my heart feel full and happy and made me love the characters even more. Loved every minute of this series. Highly Recommended! I voluntarily requested and received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

"You're brave. Passionate. Caring. I am so lucky to have found you. You are a Lady Hawk like no other could ever be." - Kayden I can not believe that this is it! The end to Ella’s story. I feel like I have been on this journey for so long, and then before I knew it ended way too soon. Surrender was 5 stars amazing from beginning to end. I had started this journey one day walking into my library to find a good book. I saw the 1st edition book cover to “If I were you”, and never knew checking out that book would bring me to a new world I will never get out of. The Inside Out series is where it began for me and where we met Ella. That series was a roller coaster ride and through the books and novella’s, you never really knew what became of Ella, until Denial was published. Oh my! Lisa did not let her reader’s down. You feel like you are magically involved into their world. I did not think any other alpha male would be up on the sexiness level as Mark or Chris (Inside Out series) until we met Kayden! I know I wrote reviews on the other two books, but it’s so hard to write this review without a little background. If you only have read the Careless Whispers Series, I recommend you go back to where it all started with the Inside Out series. You need to meet Mark, Crystal, Sara, and Chris. Now to Denial. WOW! I want to give it 10 stars if I could! The suspense of what would happen next held me captive all through the book. We have already seen how solid Kayden and Ella’s relationship had become.. And if this was not the ultimate test, I have no idea what is. Ella is ready to start giving up control to Kayden’s needs, and those scenes make you squirm. They are hot and make you want more. You will be afraid to blink so you do not miss something intense There will be more betrayal. More heartbreak for Ella. But at the end you will find out who Ella really is. With all the history I have with these books ( and yes I have read the Walker brother’s series where Blake comes in ) I never saw this coming. Not one clue. Surrender has all alarms going off. It’s sexy and intense. Ella is strong and holds her own. Kayden and Ella will protect each for always, including the ones they love. Meet The Hawk and Lady Hawk. This book blew my mind away! I want to be Lady Hawk. Thank you Lisa! This is the reason I am a huge fan! You have me hooked. I read your note at the end of the book and agree with all the “What’s next?” I can only hope one day, you will continue to give us more. Thank you for giving us these characters, Paris and Greece. And these hot alpha men!

I surrender my all to this book! There is are reason to why LRJ is automatically one of my One-Click Authors. Her writing is exquisite. Her stories make me fall in love over and over again. This last book in the Careless Whispers series, had me both elated and depressed. I was happy because I have waited for what seems like a million years to find out what happened to Ella, starting with Jones's Inside Out series. Ella finally is getting her memories back, just as danger closes around her and Kayden refuses to let anything to happen to her. Their love is one of legends. Both fight for what they believe in and for those they love. This is definitely a must read.

4.5 stars--SURRENDER is the third and final installment in Lisa Renee Jones’s contemporary, adult CARELESS WHISPERS romantic suspense series focusing on billionaire businessman Kayden Wilkens, and Ella Ferguson. The Careless Whispers series is a spin off from Lisa’s INSIDE OUT series. Ella is Sara McMillan’s (Inside Out Series) best friend and has gone missing following a trip to Europe. You do not have to have read the INSIDE OUT SERIES to follow the premise of the Careless Whispers series. SURRENDER should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately upon the events of book two DEMAND. SOME BACKGROUND: While in Italy, American citizen Ella Ferguson was found battered and bruised from an attack that left our heroine with a concussion and traumatic amnesia. Waking up in the hospital beside a beautiful stranger found Ella in a world of confusion with no memories including her own identity and the reasons for her present situation. Enter Kayden Wilkens, American billionaire and Leader of the Italian branch of The Underground (treasure hunting operation) and the man who claims to have saved Ella’s life. Told from first person point of view (Ella Ferguson) with a few chapters from Sara McMillan’s POV, SURRENDER reveals the truth behind Ella’s trip to Europe, and her connection to the missing butterfly necklace reported to be worth over three hundred million dollars. As Ella’s memory slowly returns the danger increases as the French and Italian mobs search for the missing piece of jewelry, targeting Ella is a dangerous game of hide and seek. As powerful a man as Kayden Wilkens is, he is unable to protect the woman that he loves. What ensues is the return of Ella’s memories, and a planned attack against those threatening everyone Ella loves. SURRENDER is an exciting and action packed story line of revenge, betrayal, power and love. The revealing and intriguing premise; romance and love; mystery and suspense all combine to draw the reader into an innovative and exceptional conclusion to the Careless Whispers series. The addition and cross over with Chris Merit and Sara McMillan, as well as Blake Walker brings familiarity and resolution; cohesion and history. Lisa Renee Jones adds a brief character description at the start of the story reminding the readers of the ‘who’ and ‘what’ in the previous installments. SURRENDER and the CARELESS WHISPERS series is an intriguing, imaginative and passionate look at the price of power, and the search for the ultimate prize.

4 1/2 STARS! With the stunning conclusion of the attention grabbing Careless Whisper series, Lisa Renee Jones brings us Book 3, SURRENDER. You do need to have read book 1 and book 2 to fully comprehend this story. It's been a riveting read, and the conclusion was intense! We've been on a roller coaster ride of discovery with Ella Ferguson in this entire series. She was found unconscious in an alley by Kayden Wilkens with a horrible case of amnesia back in Book 1 and has fought tooth and nail to remember who she was and what danger she was blocking out of her memory. She and Kayden have developed an intense love for one another, and as she goes deeper into his secret world, she finds pieces of herself that she thought were gone forever. This book brings answers to some of our questions, as well as a peek into Ella's friendship with Sara as Sara and Chris from Inside Out make an appearance.

Surrender brings the Careless Whispers Series to an exquisite finale. The icing on the cake! Kayden, the Hawk is the leader of an underground organisation. The rival organisations are still battling for supremacy but Kayden is more determined than ever to keep the peace that he thrives for. Ella is struggling with her memories. She has flashbacks but she is still not sure of who she really is. Neuville hasn't given up on his pursuit of possessing a valuable artifact as well as Ella. In this unsettling time, the one constant in Kayden's and Ella's life is their soul deep love for each other. Their enemies are not averse to using them as a bargain tool to get what they want. Together they have to plan and come up with strategies which will allow them the freedom to live their lives! However, nothing is as straightforward and as more pieces of Ella's memories return, she becomes more frustrated about not remembering the crucial part. Some of the memories put doubt in her mind and this could well put a strain on this wonderful relationship. The answers to some of the puzzles remain elusive. The threats and danger become more prominent. There is a traitor in their circle. Some will stop at nothing for their greed of power and wealth. Kayden and Ella are both warriors and fierce about protecting the ones they love. The development of this story is so well structured that it's impossible not to become engrossed. It's passionate, full of suspense and some of the surprises are gobsmacking! The intensity of the love between Kayden and Ella is very palpable. Their loyalty knows no bound. I have relished this whole series and it's sad to see it come to an end but, in a good way. Fabulous from beginning to end.
