Inside Out #6 (The final book in the series!)

Before you start reading this review...
please read the whole
Inside Out Series !
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

Passion. Mystery.
It all collides in the breathtaking ALL OF ME.
He's rich and famous, his past dark, but so is hers.
Can they save each other?
Or will the darkness tear them apart?

From the moment I met him, I was forever changed. From the first look in his eyes, the first touch of his hand. He has become my passion, my life, the missing part of my soul. He is the reason I am all I can be, not just some shadow of the possibilities. And together, we are the sum of all the broken pieces of our lives made whole again. Nothing will destroy us. Nothing, and no one, will keep us from the ultimate promise, to spend the rest of our lives living on the edge of absolutely everything and doing it together. I won't let it.


"We are all the sum of all our broken pieces."

In this final book in Lisa's #InsideOutSeries we start out with Sara & Chris in Paris.

Remember? Amber has just died, and Chris wants to make sure that everything is alright with Tristan; that he has all her papers in order and that he will keep running the tattoo shop. But Tristan of course is horribly angry. Mad at Chris. He blames him for everything bad that ever happened to Amber. And poor Chris, he of course blames himself too. But he promised his fiancée that he won't need the whip anymore - well - he might need it, but he won't act on the impulse. He'll always tell her when he feels the need...

And I know he'd be seeking a whip right now if not for me. I know he'd be over that edge. But he's not, and I won't let him fall, not now or ever again.

We spend some very sexy time in Paris and in the Merit family château....

...all the while Chris still blames himself for so much...

... I taste hunger in him. I taste pain. I taste fear. The kind of fear that comes from blame.

The security people are still looking for Ava and Ella, and trying to keep the press as far away from Chris & Sara as possible. But then it's time to go back to San Francisco, because Chris and Sara will get married on Valentine's Day. And there is still lots of preparing to be done for that special day.

What will happen to Sarah & Chris?
Will there finally be a HEA?
Will something/someone stop the wedding?
What about Mark & Crystal?
What about the Ava & Ella business?
Will everybody die at the end? o.O
Or will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺

I don't want to spoil too much ☺

well, of course there's no Cliffhanger, since it's the last book in the series...BUT ☺ The story about Ella is not over! Ella will get her own trilogy soon!


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

And now they're back for one final good-bye. I LOVED this book! It was just way too short :( I would've loved a 600 page story. Or a never-ending story ☺ But it was really perfect.
Sara & Chris's story, a story that so amazingly started with IF I WERE YOU, has been beautifully wrapped up...with the tiny possiblity that we might see them again in Ella's books, or that once the TV show airs,  it will be such a success (obviously) that we'll get 15 seasons and they have to be filled with so much more about Sara & Chris & Mark & Crystal ☺☺☺

ALL OF ME had EVERYTHING a great story needs:

I love how Sara is finally so sure about her love for Chris, and how she knows deep down, that whatever happens, whatever life will throw at them, they will fight through it together.

"I won't let you go." "Good. Because I'm not letting you go, either."

I loved all those really moving moments that made me and Dawson cry ☺

When one of you can't breathe, 
the other does it for you.

We also have a few tiny diary-excerpts from Rebecca thrown in here and there. It was a really nice & moving way for us to say our good-byes to her.

I don't want to be alone anymore, but I don't want to settle for Mr. Big. I guess I'm a romantic. I want real love... And that's why I walked away from my Master. He's my Mr. Big, and I want all of him. Only then will he get all of me.
-Rebecca Mason

If you loved every book of the Inside Out series - just like I did - you will LOVE this one too ----->>> GO GET IT You have no other choice... you cannot NOT read THE END!  
Now I can't wait for Ella's books!!!!!!!

And as I said numerous times before, 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 for an honest review
It was a bittersweet feeling, reading All of Me. 
I have loved this series from the day I first picked up If I Were You, and each and every book in the series, has gotten better, drawing us deeper into the world of Chris and Sara and Mark.
We finally get closure on Rebecca's story.  I loved the use of excerpts of Rebecca's journals to bring her story full circle.  I felt that it was the perfect way for us to say goodbye to someone who has been such a big part of all our main characters lives throughout the whole series. 
Sara is finally very secure in her relationship with Chris.  Chris has so many things to deal with in this installment of their story, your heart can't help but ache for him.
I loved that we also got more of Mark and Crystal.  I really, really like Crystal.
There were plenty of sweet moments, sad moments, and sexy, sexy moments - but there always are with our lovers!
The one thing that we don't get closure to is the Ella situation - but there is light at the end of the tunnel, as we find out that there will be a 3 book series about Ella.  Is she alive?  Has something happened to her?  Gah, I can't wait to find out!  And I hope that we get more of Chris and Sara, Mark and Crystal in her story.
