Revew: Being Me by Lisa Renee Jones

The sexy second installment in the Inside Out erotic romance trilogy, following If I Were You—in the seductive tradition of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fascinated by the dark fantasies in the journals she’s discovered, and the two men who have now found a place in her life, Sara McMillan finds herself torn between her new life and her past. Now, more than ever, Sara identifies with the lost journal writer, Rebecca, and is certain that something sinister has happened.

In the arms of the sexy, tormented artist Chris Merit, Sara seeks answers about Rebecca and ends up discovering things about herself she never knew existed. Chris forces Sara to reconsider who she is and what she truly wants from life, but not before his dark desires threaten to tear them apart. Her boss, Mark Compton, offers her the shelter to understand just what those needs mean to her, and what they might have meant to Rebecca, but can she trust him to lead her to a final conclusion to Rebecca’s story?

Loved this book. Sara and Chris are great together but not so good apart. In this book they have their ups and downs. What with dealing with Sara's issues with her father and Chris's keeping secrets and pushing her away this book will keep you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Plus we finally learn  what happens to Rebecca which i figured out BTW. I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Review: Rebecca's Lost Journals 1-3 by Lisa Renee Jones

In this first steamy e-short of excerpts from Rebecca’s Lost Journals, Rebecca reveals her first submissive experience—with the man who will become her Master.

In the second sultry e-short of excerpts from Rebecca’s Lost Journals, Rebecca is faced with a contract to be a submissive that she doesn’t want to sign—and her would-be Master has unusual methods of convincing her…

The third installment of the erotic and provocative journals of Rebecca featured in the
Inside Out Trilogy.

s These are based on the journals of  Rebecca's in  Lisa Renee Jones Inside Out series. You don't need to read these to read the series but you do pick up clues and insight to Rebecca's disappearance. And they are a great addition to this series and make a great filler while you are waiting on the next book in the series. I give them 4 stars cause even though they add something to the series they are not necessary to the story line and I found myself hurrying through them to get back to Sara and Chris lol. I was given these in exchange for an honest review.

Review: If I were you by Lisa Renee Jones

Description from the author's website:

How it all started.

One day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear out the unit before the lease expired.

Soon, I was standing inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her journals—-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.

Before long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I didn’t know. I was becoming her.

The dark, passion it becomes…

Now, I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

All I know for is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep askin/g myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.

Okay so I know this is not my normal read but since I love love love Lisa's paranormals I thought i'd give this series a try and I was not disappointed. I love it because it is a mystery romance. There is the mystery of what or who happened to Rebecca plus there is a budding romance with Chris even though he ping pongs back and forth with wanting more from Sara and wanting less. Plus we know Sara is dealing with her own isues in regard to rich controlling men. I loved this story up to the point where it ended. It ended with lots of unanswered questions and I can't wait until the next one. I am going with the reading order on Lisa' blog so I have to read Rebecca's lost journals first even though I so want to find out about Sara and Chris.

I was given this book by the author in exchange for a honest review and I give it a 4 1/2 stars.
