Escaping Reality

“When I want something, I go after it. And baby, I want you, and all I can say is you might be smart to run before I get any more into you, but please don't.”

“If you're worried I'll bite, I promise to tell you first.”

“You have this deer-in-headlights look sometimes that I'm sure means you're going to run. Run to me, Amy, not from me”

“All I know is he's letting me see it, and him, and he is exactly what he preaches. Raw and honest, and intense and I believe in this moment that we are a rainbow of the same colors, none of them bright or beautiful. We are the many shades of gray and black, hoping to find a glimmer of light in each other, not more darkness. ”

“I told you I do not do anything because I have to. And I don't. But to be inside you right now, baby, I have to. I need to. And, yes - right here in the kitchen.”


Infinite Possibilities

"And before I can catch my breath, his mouth slants over mine and he is kissing me, a deep, passionate, emotional kiss, that is anguish and pain, and everything I haven't said but I feel."

"He's my escape, the only place I can let go, the only place I can trust."

“Hope is my enemy. It’s worse than lies. It promises and it takes back. It teases and it rips my heart out.”

"I just want you and us, baby. And when the time is right, and this hospital room isn't that time, I'll ask you to marry me properly and then take you pyramid hunting all over the world. You and me, baby. That's what I want.”

“You are my other half, Amy. I have to protect you.”


Forsaken

"I am lost in this woman, and her moans and soft touches. She has become the only piece of heaven I have left."

"She’s changing me. In this moment, I feel it. I feel her. And us. And I feel something I haven’t dared in a lifetime. A reason to live that isn’t hate and revenge."

"I want to own her. I need the rush of it, the control, the high I’ve denied myself..."

"She makes me crave more. Escape. Passion. That indefinable sense of needing what only she can give me."

“She’s the best damned thing in my life. The woman who has pulled me back from the edge of hell.”



My Reviews



New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT TRILOGY which has sold to more than ten countries for translation with negotiations in process for more, and has now been optioned by STARZ Network for a cable television show, to be produced by Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland).

Since beginning her publishing career in 2007, Lisa has published more than 30 books with publishers such as Simon and Schuster, Avon, Kensington, Harlequin, NAL, Berkley and Elloras Cave, as well as crafting a successful indie career. Booklist says that Jones suspense truly sizzles with an energysimilar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.

Prior to publishing, Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.
