Review: Demand (Careless Whispers, #2) by Lisa Renee Jones

Demand (Careless Whispers, #2)

Still struggling with amnesia, Ella questions everything she’s known about Kayden Wilkens—the alluring stranger who claims to have found her unconscious in an alleyway a month earlier. But was he truly a stranger—or did Kayden know her before his supposed rescue? Tormented by the potential betrayal he denies, with fleeting memories of a bombshell in her recent past, Ella must face a hard reality. Every action has consequences . . . and trusting Kayden, the one thing she most desires, might result in the direst consequences of all.

Demand is the second book in he the Careless Whisperers series. This series is filled with mystery and angst. The story continues on it's dark path as all the pieces are slowly coming together. 

Demand starts the moment after Denial ends. We return to Ella questioning Kayden. Ella finds her feet in Demand, she slowly begins to puzzle together her past. She determined to remember so that she doesn't put Kayden or his men at risk. Who was the man she ran from?

"I have to remember him. The time bomb that is my mind will haunt us both, and I don't want that." 

Kayden and Ella's relationship grows exponentially and causing Ella further fears of who true identity. Kayden reassures Ella on his commitment to her safety. He's more than just the leader (the Hawk) of The Underground, he has set up other security measures. There's plenty of mafia and police drama. The story is pretty intense at times, the secrets are coming to light as Ella is remembering more of her past. However the elusive butterfly necklace is still a mystery. There's a surprise visit at the end as well. The questions remains how far will Kayden go to protect Ella. This series is a crime drama with a touch of romance. 4 Stars.
