He was passion and the reason I breathed. I loved him, trusted him when life taught me to trust no one. He was nothing I thought he was. He wasn't even the man he said he was. He was dangerous. Everyone told me to hide, to run, but now he's back. He came for me and I'm not running at all. Because he's still the man that gave me a reason to breathe and if that's dangerous, that's a risk I will have to take.

This book left me absolutely breathless. It flashes by in a torrent of action and intrigue. I haven’t read the parts of the Dirty Rich series that directly ties into this book, and it stands well on its own. There are some asides that Ashley reminisces about that I think would have more impact on me if I new the rest of the background from the series, but I don’t feel like I’m missing anything from this story by not having read it. However, that’s one heck of a cliff-hanger ending to close the book with. I’m pretty desperate now to get my hands of the rest of the story. I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley.

Oh baby! That cliffhanger was a doozie!! This quick novella is the first in a three part series. I found the way it is written to be clever. We don't have all the facts up front and are getting snippets as we go through the story via flashbacks. Ashley and Aaron/Noah have what appears to be a torrid romance but there are a great deal of unknown mysteries still at play. It remains to be seen if everything is as it seems. I'm not sharing anything more. I wouldn't want to ruin any of the fun. I really enjoyed this storyline and look forward to seeing where the next book picks up. Goodness knows that cliffhanger left some things to be explained. Thank you to NetGalley for making this available to read in exchange for an honest review.

I wanted more and couldn't get enough. I wanted to know what was happening and what was her father up too. Emma has a past that doesn't want out and I wanted to know her past. Jax is abiding his time for Emma. I can't wait to read the next book. I have to know what happens next. This ends on a cliffhanger, making you want more. Highly recommend reading this book. Randall is too busy thinking he is the king. I got a small glimpse of Emma's brother. I can't wait to find out if Emma figures everything out about what her father did and who else knows about it.

Emotionally thrilling, sexy, engaging and action packed journey filled with witty banter, intriguing charters and heart pounding twists not to mention smoking hot passion... was a exciting and excellent read from beginning to end and I am breathless for more.

This quick read had me reeling in. Ashley and Noah are frustrating and lovable at the same time. Dirty Rich Secrets is a three parter and I am grateful that Lisa did not rush this story. Its a slow burn for me because I want the HEA like now. But I get it. We need the characters to figure everything out first. There is a dash of suspense that holds your attention hostage. I have no idea what will happen next. We are left with a cliff hanger, but that is the perfect opening for part two! I cannot wait for what LRJ has in stored for us next.

If I thought I couldn't love this series more, Lisa Renee Jones has proved me wrong. Ashley and Aaron romance suspense story is giving my favorite couple a run head to head. CIA secret assassin undercover, falls for the innocent girl, she discovers his true identity and has to be relocated in witness protection and is now in danger. All this twists, mysteries, turns and cliffhanger are going to be the death of me, I need next book now, glad we have the release dates already.

Ashley has been lied to about the man she was engaged to. He has come back for her. He wants her back, but first he has to explain his past and what is happening now. He says he is there to protect her, but can she trust him based on what she had been told about him? Noah/Aaron has secrets that could either destroy or protect her and their relationship, but she first has to listen to him and then believe him. This is the first of a serial and has a huge cliff-hanger. I definitely recommend and you will be biting your nails waiting for the next installment! I received this as an ARC and I am voluntarily leaving a review of my opinion.

O-M-G, WT????, sputter,sputter…… Yes, I am flabbergasted at the ending of Dirty Rich Secrets Part 1. I knew going in that there would be a cliffie, had to be with 3 Parts. I need to know who that is!!! Even knowing that it was going to end in a cliffhanger it still didn’t prepare me for the ending! Part 2 will be here August 16th so thankfully it isn’t too long of a wait! For those that have read Dirty Rich Cinderella you might remember Ashley. That is the only book out of this series that I haven’t read. But it made no difference I still was able to become fully engaged in Dirty Rich Secrets! I loved reading Dirty Rich Secrets. It is a pretty short book so an easy and very good read! Now bring on Part 2, I am READY to find out what happens next!

Dirty Rich Secrets is Part 1 of a 3 part novella series by Lisa Renee Jones. This is Ashley and Noah’s story and is a fast pasted romantic suspense. If you have read any of the Dirty Rich books you have met Ashley before. She is Cole's paralegal and had to go into witness protection. The man she loves turns out to be a traitor but he comes to find her and wants to protect her. This book is full of suspense, emotion with twist & turns that will keep you guessing. I can’t wait for the next book. I highly recommend this new series!!

These secrets are intriguing! 4 stars The story intrigued me from the beginning, and I read this novella (it’s part 1 of 3) in one sitting! Ashley has been hurt & has questions that need answers, and I felt for her. Aaron/Noah is a sexy, Alpha secret-keeper that I want to know more about! They have amazing chemistry together, both in the past and present. This is an intense, sexy thriller that I loved and can’t wait to see what happens next after that cliffhanger! I received a copy of this ebook from the author for my honest review.

DIRTY RICH SECRETS Part 1 is the first instalment in Lisa Renee Jones’ contemporary, adult Dirty Rich Secrets erotic, romantic suspense, novella trilogy focusing on paralegal Ashley aka Sandy, and former CIA operative Noah aka Aaron. DIRTY RICH SECRETS Part 1 can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person perspectives (Ashley and Noah) using present day and memories from the past, DIRTY RICH SECRETS Part 1 reveals some of the backstory and history between paralegal Ashley aka Sandy, and former CIA operative Noah aka Aaron. Six months earlier Ashley discovered that the man with whom she had fallen in love was a traitor to the country. Currently in the witness protective program, Ashley would come face to face with the man she knew only as Noah, a man who reveals that Ashley’s life has once again been compromised. What ensues is the rekindling relationship between Ashley and Noah, as our couple find themselves on the run, one step ahead of the people trying to take them down. The relationship between Ashley and Noah is one of second chances; a rekindling romance in which Ashley struggles with her attraction to a man she knows nothing about, a romance predicated on a lie using our heroine as a cover for an undercover op. The $ex scenes are intimate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. DIRTY RICH SECRETS Part 1 is an intriguing and quick read; a story of betrayal, secrets and lies; of revelations and explanations; of second chances and falling in love. Reading more like a serialized story line, DIRTY RICH SECRETS Part 1 ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.

This novella is a fast-paced romantic suspense with wonderful characters and an interesting storyline. Written predominantly from Ashley’s POV, we get to see how she finds herself in an unsafe situation and how she is questioning whether or not she can and should trust Aaron. Ordinarily, I prefer stories to be told from a dual POV, but I think the author made the right choice in focusing on Ashley’s thought processes and mindset. I enjoy the mystery of wondering just what Aaron is about and what we can believe about him. He is dangerous, but his love for Ashley is evident. Dirty Rich Secrets is takes place in the present with Ashley’s memories interspersed throughout the chapters. I am usually not a fan of books that have multiple flashback scenes, but it was well done and was a great way to illustrate the beginnings of their relationship. This novella has the perfect amount of suspense, action, intrigue, and attraction and is sure to keep you entertained until the very end. I am definitely looking forward to diving into Part 2. I’ve read a complimentary copy of this book and all thoughts and opinions are my own.

GAH! I will start right off with saying there is a cliffhanger and it is a doosy but that is okay because books 2 and 3 are promised within the next couple weeks! Ashley (Cole's assistant) fell in love with the wrong man and had to go into the Witness Protection Program and now she is living in Austin but Noah (Aaron) has found her! This book is full of twists and turns and heart-stopping thrills. We are given glimpses of their past and their future doesn't look promising. But wait, there's more! ...and I'm not giving anything away, mostly because I'm left in the dark with everyone else! I cannot wait for book 2! **Received this ARC for review**

New trilogy by Lisa Renee Jones?  Sign me up! Dirty Rich Secrets starts off fast and keeps you riveted to the pages until the end and in true Ms. Jones style she is gonna leave you hanging in the best way! This is the story of Ashley and Noah, or is it Aaron? Hiding from someone or someones is what Ashley is doing, witness protection.  But the love that Aaron has for Ashley won't keep him away from her.  And Ashley is nursing a broken heart and broken trust because of it.  She is wary when Aaron comes back into her life. I love the secrets and intrigue of Ms. Jones stories and this trilogy has them in spades! Who is after them?  Does Aaron really love Ashley or is she still just a target for him?  I cannot wait to find out more! If you love intrigue, mystery and a whole lot of alpha hero and swooniness! Get your hands on this book!  I cannot wait for the next installment!

This is the first in a three part series for Ashley and Aaron's (Noah) story. We get a small taste in what Ashley got herself into falling in love with Aaron. Nobody ever expects their boyfriend is a CIA agent posing as someone else. I'm a fan of this kind of trope. I love it when a secret assassin for the CIA, who lives a solitary life, meets and falls for the innocent, naive woman ultimately putting her in danger. I'm looking forward to learning all of Aaron's secrets.

Wow! What an amazing beginning to this new trilogy! Ashley is living in the witness protection program when the very man she’s hiding from reappears in her life. He cannot be trusted and yet as he begins to open up and share with her about the secretive side of himself, she realizes she does trust him, and if things are as royally messed up as they seem, he’s the only one she can trust. Noah/Aaron knew when he first laid eyes on Ashley that he wanted her. While his assignment forced him to find a target as a way in to where he had no access, his attraction to Ashley was very real. But he was living a lie and eventually it caught up to him. Now he needs to not only protect the woman he loves, he has to win her heart again. For a novella, this has a lot of impact. With suspense and thrills at every corner, the heart of the story is the relationship between Ashley and Aaron. The chemistry between them is electric and even while Ashley is struggling to come to terms with his deception, it’s obvious her emotions are still seriously engaged with him. This is a pretty fast read that ends in a huge cliffhanger, so it was difficult to get a good read on the characters. I can say that the hero is an all-in kind of guy. He’s going to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. ”I won’t just kill for you. I’d die for you.” The heroine obviously has some concerns regarding what’s true and what’s not but she doesn’t make him work very hard before he’s made his way back into her heart. He believes in her and I loved that he saw in her what she couldn’t see herself. ”She’s brave. She’s strong. She’s capable of more than she realizes, but I see it. I have always seen that in her. I have always been drawn to that in her.” I love where this story is headed and can’t wait to get there!

Fast-paced story filled with intrigue, suspense and smokin' hot passion. DIRTY RICH SECRETS is the first book in a three-part series by Lisa Renee Jones. It tells us the beginning of Ashley’s and Noah’s story. If you’ve read the ‘Dirty Rich’ books you’ll have come across Ashley already. She’s Cole Brooks’ assistant and paralegal. Anyway, we get to see whom they felt- classic cute meet with a hidden edge. No spoilers, you’ll have to read and garner what I did. Noah is working for the CIA but wants out. Ashley wasn’t meant to get under his skin but she did and now he wants to keep her there. And safe from harm. These are not mutually inclusive wishes as it turns out and despite Noah’s best efforts, danger is on the horizon, hunting them, then eclipsing them. The fast-paced story is told in dual POV, my favorite style and flashes from past to present as we are seeing the history of the relationship through Ashley’s eyes (at the moment, hopefully, Noah will throw his lot in, in the next book), the present is from both of them. It’s a sexy, gritty, twisty and hot as sin story with the chemistry between these two barely being contained. As it’s a trilogy, it’s not as long as a standalone, so it was a fast read. I was left wanting more. Always more. Ashley and Noah are sure to be the next top couple in Lisa’s ‘Dirty Rich’ world.
