is written in first person from Sara’s point of view. There were times I longed
for Chris’ point of view. I wanted to know what was going on inside his head
because he is such a compelling character. I wanted to know his deep dark
secrets. However, the book wouldn’t work if we knew what Chris thought. To know
the answers would take away from the intrigue and mystery of the book.

off to elope. Sara finds she can’t sell off the belongings in the storage unit.

This desire leads to Sara taking Rebecca’s place at the art gallery, which

awkward moments. She’s someone you can see as having for a friend. She is torn
between her desire to take the opportunity to change her life by working in the
art gallery and finding Rebecca. Her relationship with Chris kept me turning
a mystery. He’s rich and famous but doesn’t act it. He prefers people to not
know he is the famous Chris Merit. Chris wants to protect and care for Sara.
His feelings for her make him act in ways that break the rules he has set out. He
has a dark secret that he knows will make Sara run away. At the end of the

steamy first installment in the Inside Out erotic romance trilogy by Lisa Renee
Jones, in the bestselling tradition of Fifty Shades of Grey. When Sara McMillan
finds a stack of journals in a storage unit, she’s shocked and enthralled by
the erotic life the writer led. Unable to stop reading, she vicariously lives
out dark fantasies through Rebecca, the writer—until the terrifying final
entry. Certain something sinister has happened, Sara sets out to discover the
facts, immersing herself in Rebecca’s life.
she’s working at the art gallery Rebecca worked at and meeting Rebecca’s
friends. Finding herself drawn to two dangerously sexy men, the manager of the
gallery and a famed artist, Sara realizes she’s going down the same path
Rebecca took. But with the promise of her dark needs being met by a man with
confident good looks and a desire for control, she’s not sure anything else
matters. Just the burn for more.
