Genre: Erotic Suspense
The fourth in the Inside Out erotic romance series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, this steamy novel resolves Chris and Sarah's relationship and leads into Mark's story.
"Chris and I have faced our demons and bared our souls to one another in Paris. Now that we are back home in San Francisco, I want to believe that nothing can tear us apart. Not Ava’s accusations against me to the police, or Chris's fear that he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. And not Mark, who was once too intimately a part of our lives, and who I can see crumbling inside out. He believes he is invincible, just as I want to believe Chris and I are invincible. We have to be invincible. We need each other too much for any other ending."
I know how powerful pain is. It can drive you insane and it can make you do things you never thought you were capable of doing. Never, ever, underestimate it. Never, Sara. - Chris
If you run, Chris, run fast, because I'll come after you. That's just the kind of bitch I am. - Sara
If you haven't read Lisa Renee Jones' INSIDE OUT series then you are seriously missing out on something fierce! It's a great blend of sexy, suspense, and kink I'm not surprised that Starz is developing the series for TV.
Anyway, the series originally was supposed to be just a trilogy but due to its success, it has expanded to a LOT of books and novellas in between. The reason being the characters are rich in personality and secrets that they are begging for their story to be told and LRJones was kind enough to tell them. I'm happy of course, we all want our favorite series to keep on going right?
NO IN BETWEEN is Sara and Chris' journey to their much anticipated HEA aka wedding but their upcoming nuptials is shadowed by Mark Compton's personal troubles and Rebecca's disappearance which spurned a big media and legal circus involving a lot of people. I'm still unsure if Rebecca is dead, it's easy to presume that she is, but all the crazy talk that's been happening and no body to prove otherwise, I'm one of those readers who are hopeful that Rebecca isn't dead and is hiding somewhere. Whatever the case may be, Sara chancing upon her journal obviously is a big catalyst in the story and as we know more, the big picture now looks like this big sticky and dangerous spiderweb. The upside is, Sara has Chris to help her untangle the mess and hopefully the mystery behind Rebecca will finally be solved and the conundrum laid to rest.
Now Sara and Chris has come a long way. They are finally stronger than their demons and it just keeps on getting better as Chris slowly bares himself to Sara and she in turn tend to his insecurities, accepts and forgives his secrets, and pays him with love... and lots and lots of sex! Ha!
Bedtime play aside, I love the layers of this series, the character development is fantastic and the suspense is well played. LRJones knows how to keep her readers guessing and captivated by Rebecca's disappearance. There's no clear trail, the clues are strewn everywhere and right now, anything can happen. I no longer know what is what, I'm just bracing myself for the final outcome.
NO IN BETWEEN is another great installment, I'm not usually a fan of long drawn mysteries but I sure didn't mind it this time around. Give Inside Out a try, it's more than erotica.
