I listen to my books while working, and I work alot!, love Detective, Dystopian, Science fiction, Fantasy, U/F, PNR and Steam Punk.
The book starts right after Eva's attack on Sara and the huge decision whether to go to Paris or not. There is not as much credible story line or action as with the first two books and you are left in Sara's angst riddled brain for the majority of the book, the section on her difficulties with French cuisine and the language had me gritting my teeth. That and her penchant for running into trouble, while a scowling Chris comes to her rescue, this happens several times and Sara seems to have gone from an assertive women in search of the truth to having no backbone and whining while making ludicrous assumptions because she is so insecure.
Do not get me wrong Lisa Renee Jones knows how to write, there was just too much overly labored feelings of Chris's tortured soul, this huge massive secret that was flogged and alluded to all the way through the book, to the point that when it was revealed I didn't much care either way.
. Anyway the book felt like a springboard for the the next book something to fill a flagging space. Not for me this time.
I just want to say that although I did not enjoy the direction this third installment went in, Grace Grant narrates wonderfully..
I enjoy listening to chick lit and romance novels, business, self improvement, fiction novels
It didn't disappoint one bit. I never got bored, never dragging the story. Great narrator. An amazing follow up to the series.
"A passionate romance mixed with suspense & mystery"
Another breath-taking story filled with suspense, mystery, intrigue, and hot sex! Lisa Renee Jones will captivate you and pull you in from the very beginning. There is always a mystery or a twist or turn and you never know where you are going to end up. In this book, there did seem to be less action when compared to the two previous ones. I think we experience more drama rather than action. Either way, still delicious to me! Well, lets talk about Chris and Sara… *sigh* I seriously just adore them. Although, they can certainly exhaust the hell out of you! This book is very focused on the development of Sara's and Chris relationship. I experienced the thrill, the love, the suspense, and the hot connection between Sara and Chris more than ever!! This book starts off with Sara making the decision to get on the plane to meet Chris and begin their new life in Paris. While Sara is trying to learn her new life in Paris, she feels somebody is following her. It doesn't help that she was robbed at the Paris airport and no longer has a passport. She continues to search for her missing friend Ella while also finding out somebody else is looking for her friend too. Sara's life is spinning out of control and she is not sure if she can hold on to Chris and stays in Paris. The story does reveal the inner secrets of Chris and his past, it also opens the door to the possibility that's Rebecca is not dead, and perhaps Ella is tied up in the same kind of trouble. Overall, the plot is imaginative, and its erotic romantic suspense at its best. These stories from Lisa Renee Jones just keep getting better and better. They are full of suspense, plenty of steamy sex, and every single one of them leaves you wanting more! I am an absolute addict when it comes to the Inside Out Series. I can't wait for more about all these characters that Lisa Renee Jones has brought to life. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, I really think you should. It has so many aspects to it, there’s something for everyone. The writing is intelligent and it just grabs you and doesn’t let go. These books are well written, sexy and have instantly become favorites of mine! I cannot wait see what happens. Hurry Lisa we are all waiting for the next book….
"My favorite Erotic series!"
This book picks up right where Being Me left off and we find Sara following Chris to Paris. This is where she hopes to discover Chris’s secrets and to find out what happened to her best friend Ella. This book focuses on Sara and Chris and how they deal with their demons and try to figure out how to be together. There is plenty of suspense, romance, drama and smexy in this installment. Thankfully we get a “conclusion” to Sara and Chris’s story, but there are still some unanswered questions.
It appears that this is no longer a trilogy and has now become a series. I’m a little disappointed by this but at least there is some closure. There is a big cliffhanger at the end involving another character (*I don’t want to spoil it for you) so I can see where this is turning into a series.
5 star listen in my opinion!
I would put it somewhere in the middle.
Well my reaction to this book is ambivalent at the moment. Let me first start off with my disgruntlement of a book touted as being the conclusion of a trilogy and then once again it is anything but. I am really becoming frustrated with authors who tout series to be concluded in a specific book then once the reader has purchased and read the book, you find out that it is not the ending after all. I do not mind series continuing on, there are many I do not want to end, but it would be nice to know this beforehand, it would actually change the reader's expectations.
With that aside, let me get into my feelings regarding the story. While I enjoyed it, it was not what I was expecting. I am still not sure what I was expecting but this one took me out into left field. Don't get me wrong it was written very well, though there was a little too much going around the issues Cris and Sara was facing, and it was darker than I thought but it was still a good story. The things I did not care for were the way they "&*^& around their issues instead of facing them. So much more could have been accomplished if they did that.
One more thing, though this does not just relate to this book and this author. I know I am new to reading the BDSM genre, but it is very frustrating and annoying that the characters who are living and practicing this lifestyle are always so dark and broken. Where are all the strong, stable people who are living and practicing this lifestyle? I find that insulting and stereotypical. So far I have only read two authors who actually have characters who are not so broken and have found this lifestyle through pain, betrayal or degradation.
Other than all that, I enjoyed the book but I am not sure yet if I will continue with the series. It will all depend on how far the author is planning on taking this series. This is more about me than the author, I was expecting closure and a little Happily Ever After, and that is not what I got, not even close, thus my disappointment.
"All Over the Place?"
I was very disappointed. The three stars are for the character of Chris. He is so sweet.
"NO WAY THIS IS THE SAME SERIES I WAS INTO!!!"
The best I can't say cause it would be a spoiler. There is so many things I disliked about this book, that I don't have enough room. I am so disappointed in this. How can we wait this for this. REALLY?
The entire book was almost painful to listen to I cannot get over the stupid things Sara does in this book. I sat it down so many times saying I think I got the wrong book. There were small, and I am saying that to be kind, that were good, but not many
Grace Grant is good, but this performance almost, and again being kind here, almost changed my mind. She could not even change in between different person's as she normally does. Grace is on of my fav's to listen to. But in this.. She is way off.
I don't know.. I want to think that it does, but so scared that LRJ will cause me to just not want to ever listen to anything about Chris and Sara afraid of what she will do to them.. This was not her work from the other book, that's for sure.
I don't know about the other followers of this series of books, but the author was on a roll. So much so I could not wait until this came out. But it died a slow death. I keep saying "Oh come on,, start telling me a story here" It was hard to hear how Sara became brain dead at times. She was a bright, smart, and sometimes I would question the things she did, but in this one..OMG..she was must of hit her head heading to the airport to meet him on the way to Paris. And he changed also. Not as bad as she did, but a different Chris, but I expected that. I just don't want to say anything about this, I wanna keep the last thing they said to one another in my head and hope there is a HEA and leave it alone. This is by far the worst tag on to a series of books I have listened to so far. So upset at what she did and what the big secret was that he said would destroyed them while in California. Oh come on. He could of told her that in a night of sharing more than some of the things he did very early on. Yeah, for me to go forward on this, she really has to redeem herself (the author) in order for me to pick this back up.. I am hurt on this. Once I have had enough of a story or I think it was destroyed and trust me, this was ripped apart. I don't return to them.. NOPE, no good things to say about this.To me, it's not worth paying, and thinking right now, I would not of given a credit for this.. If another comes out and it will, cause of the stupid things that are going on that don't have a thing to do with Sara and Chris, I will watch and see what others say.. I can't be the only one that thinks she took one of the great top series and destroyed it.
Too much thinking and analysis by Sara, even Grace Grant sounded bored. This is the third and if you liked the first two, like I did, you will most likely want to listen to this one. Be prepared for little action and mystery and many questions still unanswered.
"CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK !!!!!"
Yes, has a good story line not just an erotic sex book but good story as well
Along the line of Fifty Shades but in a different direction more of what one can do to ones self rather than another
She is great to listen to does men and women 's voice equally as well, I have enjoyed her in several books
Lots of emotional highs and lows but not like other books have effected me and sometimes it is nice just to listen to a book that does not effect you to that level
"Can't Stop Listening!!!"
This is most definitely at the top of my list, I have listened to this book almost five times now, and I am going to order the actual book to read now.
I loved how Chris could read everything Sarah was thinking by her facial expressions.
I love Grace Grant, I have ordered almost all of her books, and she does a different voice in every book! I love that!
I love everything about this book and the conflict of the book, still leaves me hanging!
"Still a hit but a bit overdone"
This is one of my favourite series but I have to say that it was a bit drawn out. Sara and Chris are a wonderful love story and both books prior to this one had me screaming for more. I felt like the narration was a bit off as well. I love, love, love Grace Grant and this time there were a few parts where Chris and Sara were talking and you could not tell them apart. As other reviewers said it will not stop me from listening to her again because she is simply great. I think that at some points in the story it just keeps going on and on about this secrete so you are expecting something major and frankly it was a bit of a letdown. Sara was pretty stupid in this book. At times I wanted to knock some sense into her. The entire Amber rescue and then drinking at the bar. One minute she is desperate to get out and the next she is drinking and becomes totally drunk in 5 minutes. I just could not understand her. Regardless of these minor complaints I will still continue with the next book. I think it should be longer for the price. I hate when authors get greedy and start cutting up books in order to get more money. This one could have had more to it. Overall I still love this series and highly recommend you read/listen to it. It is hard not to crave more of this and it will be interesting how Ella merges with this book.
"The Mystery Saves This Read"
What a great mix of Hotness and Mystery that has you on the edge of your seat thinking what is going to happen next and OMG where is Ella, what is Chris big secret and the drama in the states Really??
Revealing Us picks up right where we left off in Being Me and as you can guess Sara goes to Paris with Chris. As soon as they arrive in Paris, the drama begins with some of Chris hidden secrets that we don’t find out what they are until the very end of the book talk about frustrating. There were a lot of frustrating moments with Sara in this book her insecurities and Chris need to keep his secret hidden until the “perfect moment” was what kept me on the edge. The one thing that truly saved this read was the hotness and the mystery of missing Ella along with some trouble from the states that awaits them once they return.
I’m not going to give much away but this was a nice read to wrap up some of the of things between Chris and Sara but they still have a long way to go. I hope that in the next book they are able to overcome all of their insecurities and move forward. Let me tell you that ending OMG I need to know more and I need to know what really happened with Ella at first I didn’t think much about it but now with that little snippet of information I know this will defiantly be something HUGE with her and I can’t wait I hope it’s not long.
