If you haven't yet - you're missing out on some of the best books EVER
(and of course our review might spoil some things for you!!!)

5 Stars

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."


Chris and Sara just got back to San Francisco from Paris.
The police need to speak to them again - because as we remember - Ava retracted her confession and is now blaming everything on Sara and Mark.

Now they have to proof that Ava killed Rebecca.
And the whole Rebecca disaster is not the only problem Sara and Chris have to face.
There's still Chris's dark side. We saw in Paris that whenever something really bad happens he feels the need to be whipped to survive all those dark feelings inside of him. And now he's scared to death that Sara will not be able to handle another of his 'episodes'.
But Sara believes she is stronger than he thinks. She will not leave him - no matter what.
He's her future husband. Nothing he does could make her leave.

He is power and control.
He is pure male domincance.
He is my future husband.

Then we also have to deal with the Gallery, because Mark kind of gave up on it - at least that's how it seems. He's in New York at his mom's hospital bed. And he had his mom's protegée Crystal take over both the New York and San Francisco businesses.
But Crystal is totally overwhelmed with too much work, so she begs Sara to take over in San Francisco.

Then Mark shows up in San Francisco.
And even though he's still his dominant rude self, he's all broken inside. His mom's illness, Rebecca's disappearance, having to take care of both the east and west-coast businesses, and all the rumors about his sex club going around in the press.
Sara feels she has to do something to help him - but she has enough to do to save herself and Chris.
Plus he doesn't want to be helped - he constantly sends her away - with all his rude and sexual charm.☺

Then we have our very sexy Sara & Chris moments again.

But.... there still are lots of problems to overcome until everybody can get their happy ever after...

What will happen to Sarah & Chris?
Will there be a HEA?
What about Mark?
Will everybody die at the end?
Or will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?


l don't want to spoil anything
OK - I might tell you that Mark & Crystal will get another Novella next and then their own full length novel:
so - we'll see them again☺☺☺ and  of course we'll meet Sara & Chris again too - there's still a last book left  - Valentine's Day 2015!!! ☺


YAY ☺ I missed Sara & Chris & Mark soo much *happydance*

I LOVED this book!
With Sara and Chris getting enganged we kinda had an ending already for them - but the story is far from over. There's still so much left to tell - so much left to overcome - mostly on Chris's side.

This book - had EVERYTHING a great book needs:


I loved how Sara & Chris are so secure in their love this time - there's no real drama about her running away or him pushing her away. They know there will be hard moments with Chris and his darker side and with Sara and her anxiety attacks and of course with the Rebecca & Amber problems - but they love each other too much to let anything get in the way of their happiness! ♥

I loved how the Roses on the cover have something to do with the story.... ☺

Ugh, but poor Mark - I felt sooo bad & sad for him in this book.

I wanted Crystal to come and make him happy (Ok - I wouldn't have minded going to San Francisco myself to give him a 'cuddle' ☺)
- but we'll have to wait a bit longer for Mark's next 2 books. Can't wait! He so deserves to be happy again after everything that happened.

And we finally find out a bit more about what happened to Rebecca - but this whole story might not be over after this book... ☺
If you loved every book of the Inside Out series - just like I did - you will LOVE this one too ----->>>

Now I can't wait for the next books!!!!!!!

And, can I please have the Inside Out TV Show on my TV tomorrow??? And can it please be a daily thing? Because I want/need to stare at (naked) Chris & Mark all day long!

ARC received from Gallery Books via Netgalley for an honest review

More Chris and Sara - woot woot!!
After becoming engaged in Paris, things are all supposed to be great for our darlings, aren't they. But as we have read the Inside Out series, we know that things are never that easy for Chris and Sara.

There are still so many hurdles for the pair to overcome - Chris's dark thoughts, Mark's pulling away from the running of the gallery, the troubles Ava has caused, Rebecca's murder.

We are finally starting to get somewhere with the whole missing Rebecca Mason story too. Is Ava (the psycho hose beast!) the murderer? Did Mark kill her? Was Chris involved?

Nuh uh, am not going to tell you, but we are close to finding things out!!

I loved how through all the troubles, Sara and Chris are still strong, and growing closer and stronger every day. There are so many things and people that are trying to destroy them and it is heartwarming to see them gain strength through each other.

There are a few blasts from the past who make an appearance, people we haven't seen for a while. I love love loved that we got more of Katie and Mike, Chris' godparents. They are only minor players in the story, but they play such a big part in Chris's life, and I hope we hear more from them as the story continues.

My heart breaks for Mark in No In Between. He has been put through the wringer with the whole Rebecca situation, along with what is currently happening with his family (if you have read My Hunger you will know what this is all about). Even though he is an arrogant, rude, crude arse most of the time, you can feel the hurt behind his words. I just hope that Crystal can bring the old Mark back - even if, yes, he was still an arrogant arse, at least he was a happy arse!

Can't wait for the next novella in Mark and Crystal's story, My Control
