5 Stars

In a world where my only escape has been my art, Sara has been the light in my darkness. And there is darkness, the kind of inky black that can bleed from my life to hers.
She doesn't see it. She doesn't understand what I've shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon...she will.


Chris is finally telling us his side of the story in this new Novella from the INSIDE OUT SERIES!

The book starts right where Revealing Us left off.
Remember? Chris just proposed to Sara in Paris. After he tried to keep his demons locked away - the demons that want to come out every year on the anniversary of Amber's parents' and  his mother's deaths.
He didn't really kill those demons yet - maybe the proposal happened a bit too soon. But he just can't stand the thought of losing Sara too...of not being with her forever...

"The problem is I'm pretty damn sure that I'm not good for her. I'm just too fucking selfish and in love to walk away."

Everything could go back to as normal as possible - with the trial waiting back in California...but then they get a phone call about Tristan, Amber & Isabel...
and everything Chris hoped for is threatened again...

"Everything is fine - except it's not."

Will Sara still want him, once she knows the REAL Chris?
The Chris he tries to hide from the world?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺ it would totally spoil your reading pleasure ;)


It was soooo horribly short :(
it's a novella - I knew that! But still :( it was Chris - I wish Lisa had written a 800-pages book in Chris's POV ☺

The novella was perfect though!

I have no idea how Lisa managed to write sooo much feelings and angst and suspense and emotions and sparkly erotic moments into such a short book!!!!?!

It was so amazing to finally read how Chris sees his world - how much he loves Sara - how much he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.
How scared he is to lose her - afraid that she won't be able to handle the real him...

"The two of us are all kinds of fucked up that somehow equals perfect."

I really enjoyed reading it. And yes, it took me way longer to create this blogpost than to read the book - but it was SO worth it ☺

at the end we even get a tiny little preview of the next book - My Hunger - Mark's POV ☺ YAY


ARC Received via Netgalley for honest review 

So much emotion is conveyed in just 60 pages!  And this novella is a perfect companion to the Inside Out series (and really, Ms Jones could write Chris reading the chinese takeaway menu to us and I know I would read it!!)

We start where we left off, with Chris and Sara getting engaged in Paris.  As we know, Chris and Sara's relationship has not been smooth sailing, and as we can expect from Ms Jones, we get plenty of angst, sorry, pain and drama, as well as love and lust.  And boy the sexy times are sexy!!

Chris' past is still coming to play in his relationship with Sara, and you can feel his heartache as they work through their problems.  Will their love be enough to get them through, or will Chris allow the past to rip them apart?

Uh uh, for that you are going to have to read for yourself.

Ms Jones has also given us a taste of the next book in the series, which will be Marks POV.  Now I hope the release for My Hunger is not a long way away because




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.
