Excerpt

We say a quick goodbye, and to my shock, the instant I push the “end” button, Chris pulls

 

the 911 to the shoulder of the road, puts it in park and turns to me. “Talk to me. What just

 

happened?”

 

“You stopped to ask me what happened?”

 

“Yes. I stopped to ask what happened. Now, tell me.”

 

My lashes lower a moment as I savor just how good this man is to me. I curl my fingers

 

on my cheek. “Thank you for stopping, but really, there was nothing worthy of concern. Let’s go

 

to the chateau.”

 

“After you tell me what happened,” he orders, but the tenderness lacing the stubborn

 

determination of his tone wins me over, as does his sincerity. He really cares and I am truly not

 

alone anymore.

 

“When Katie wanted to know if there was anyone on my side of the family to coordinate

 

with, it hit a nerve. I started worrying about Ella, and thinking about my father, who I don’t want

 

to come to our wedding. I truly don’t, yet somehow, the very fact that I don’t gives him the

 

power to twist me in knots.”

 

Chris nods. “As did my father to me, no matter how much of a bastard he became.

 

Sometimes I think the worse he treated me, the more I wanted to win back his affection.”

 

I’d seen glimpses of these feelings before now, but this is the first time he’s spoken them

 

aloud. “Maybe it’s some inborn need to feel close to a parent?”

 

“That’s the only conclusion I could come to when I couldn’t let him go. I still can’t. He’s

 

always with me, making sure I stay just a little more fucked up.”

 

“If you’re fucked up, it’s all kinds of right, Chris Merit. That charity work Tristan talked

 

about? You don’t just throw money at it. You give pieces of your soul to those kids and their

 

families. You make a difference and I’ll be honored to help you do it.”

 

He pulls my hand to his mouth and kisses my fingers. “Let’s elope. Anyplace you want to

 

  1. Say the word and as far as I’m concerned we’ll go tomorrow.”

 

“What? No. We decided on Katie and Mike’s place together. And my ring isn’t even

 

done.”

 

“This isn’t about a ring. Or Katie and Mike, or anyone else. It’s about us and I don’t want

 

you worried about your father or the guest list. You know I’m not big on attention anyway.”

 

I lace my fingers with his. “You’re trying to protect me and I appreciate that, but I want to

 

get married under those hanging rose your mother inspired Katie to plant.”

 

“Don’t do this for me, baby. I just want to spend the rest of my life with you. That’s all I

 

need.”

 

“It’s for us. You know my father is just a hot button for me. I’ll get by it. And truth be

 

told, I’m a little raw over Amber, too. That night here in Paris when I went to the club I had this

 

sense I needed to save her. I shouldn’t have listened to that feeling.”

 

“Don’t do that to yourself. You barely knew her.”

 

“Yet, on some level I felt her screaming for help. But I second-guessed myself and

 

thought it was Rebecca and Ella influencing my feelings.”

 

“You were a lot of the reason I pushed to get Amber help, Sara. It was just too little too

 

late. That’s on me, not you.”

 

“No-”

 

“Yes,” he says, stroking the hair out of my eyes, his hand staying at the back of my head.

 

“Now here’s what’s going to happen. We’re going to leave this all right here and I’m going to

 

drive us the fifteen minutes we have left to get to the chateau, where we’re going to fuck like

 

rabbits. Then, we’re going to eat and fuck some more. After we sleep, we’ll set some rules with

 

Katie about the wedding so you won’t worry about it and then we’ll fuck some more. And since I

 

had the caretaker that lives in the house behind the chateau stock enough food to last us a week,

 

we can stay in bed for days on end. Any objections so far?”

 

I smile and not just at his words, but at his rapid shift from dark Chris, to playful, sexy

 

Chris. “And if I do?”

 

He, leans closer to me, his breath on my ear. “I’ll just tie you to the bed.”

 

Yes. Please. My list of objections begins to form.

5 Star Read

Tracey’s Review

The Inside Out series by Lisa Renee Jones finally draws to a close with ALL OF ME, the last book of the series. This book is the wrap-up for Sara McMillan and Chris Merit, and occurs concurrently with the plot of I BELONG TO YOU, Mark’s and Crystal’s story. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series, and have grown very fond of all of the main characters, seeing them evolve, as they have. Both Sara and Chris have demons, things from their pasts that have shaped them, but they have found, in each other, their safe places. In ALL OF ME, Lisa Renee illustrates how very far Sara and Chris have come, how each makes the other their best possible self. Although they still, especially Chris, have their dark moments, there is absolutely no question that they have overcome so much of their past pain, due to the love that has formed between them. There is absolute trust, complete truth, and the desire to be the better person. Sara has truly come into her own, secure in the knowledge of her strength, of Chris’ love for her, and Chris continues to work to put his need for self-punishment behind him.

There are so many things that make the Inside Out books some of my favorites. The ongoing mystery, the lives and stories of the various characters that are so intricately connected, the utter hotness that are Chris Merit and Mark Compton, and the edge-of-your-seat action that is part of each book have combined to make these books that I can consistently rate 5-plus stars. ALL OF ME, and the entire Inside Out series, are well worth the read. Lisa Renee has done a wonderful job of bringing the reader full circle, answering all of the questions that arose during the series. The remaining mystery revolves around the disappearance of Sara’s friend, Ella (for those folks that don’t remember, , the one that originally introduced her to Rebecca’s journals waaay back when), but, happily, Lisa has written a three-book series that will take us on her journey and give us all the answers.

Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the

punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is

what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.

Excerpt

“Mark.”

I squeeze my eyes shut as Crystal’s voice stirs an odd sensation in my chest that somehow eases the ache in my gut. Desire rockets through me, and I tell myself it’s about fucking and control. I need it, and she’s my safe zone outside of the club.

“Are you okay?” she asks when I do not speak.

When our gazes meet the jolt is as unwelcome as it is intense. She feels it, too. I see it in the slight widening of her eyes, the way she curls her fingers into her palms on the counter across from me.

“You were furious with me a few minutes ago,” I say. “Why are you standing here now?”

“I’m not one-dimensional. I can be furious and worried at the same time.”

Unable to squash my intrigue over the unknowns of her past, I agree. “No, you aren’t one-dimensional. Nor are you simply a rich girl who wants to prove something to daddy.”

“Thank you.” She crinkles her brow. “I think.”

We fall into silence, a hum of electricity charging between us. “I still go back to you saying ‘The End’ to me a few minutes ago. You meant it this time, too. That doesn’t translate to you standing here.”

“Neither does much of what you do, where I’m concerned.”

“You’re absolutely right. It doesn’t. What does, though, is sticking to ‘The End.’ What doesn’t is how badly I want to drag you into another room and fuck you right now.”

She shakes her head. “It’s not me you want. It’s someone who’ll sign a contract and be your outlet and bridge to control. You left that bedroom thinking about the impossibility of a reason for Rebecca’s death, beyond your self-blame and guilt. You need that bridge.”

There is banked pain lacing her words, and a hint of the earlier anger I’d seen in her eyes. I could make those things go away by telling her what she’s said isn’t true. I could tell her she’s gotten under my skin. But I don’t even know who the man beneath the surface is right now. I’ve destroyed two women. Crystal doesn’t deserve to be number three.

“Is everything okay?” my father asks from the doorway, repeating Crystal’s earlier words.

“Yes,” I say, my gaze lingering on Crystal before I push off the counter, hands going to my hips. “We’re ready to talk to Mom about what’s been going on.”

“We are?” Crystal asks, sounding surprised. “Tonight?”

“We can’t risk her finding out from somewhere else,” I explain.

“She’d feel betrayed,” my father adds.

Crystal gives a choppy nod. “Yes. I can see that. But I am not looking forward to telling her.”

“None of us are,” my father says. “Right now, though, she wants us all to eat together. And since it’s the best chance we have of getting some food down her, I say we wait until after we’ve finished. I don’t want to jeopardize her appetite.”

“I’m all for getting food down her,” I say. “She’s skin and bones.”

“I’ve been force-feeding her what she does eat,” Crystal adds. “The nurse suggested some high-calorie protein shakes. I tried that, but she hates them.”

My father starts to turn, then pauses. “By the way, Crystal, Larry Prescot called me just before you got here. You won him over. Thanks for calming him down before he got to Dana.”

“My pleasure.”

He disappears into the hallway and I grab Crystal’s arm. “How okay is Prescot?”

“Very.”

“How can you be sure?”

“I threw out my father’s name—something that I normally would never do.”

“But?”

“I was on the phone with my father when the receptionist buzzed to tell me that Prescot had arrived for our meeting. My father overheard and insisted that I drop his name. I reminded him that I’m adamant about succeeding on my own merits. But I’m also not one to foolishly ignore resources when backed into a corner, and I was. Prescot was being a total jerk. I knew we were about to lose the business.”

“So you broke your rule.”

“I did. And it was an amazing turnaround. Prescot suddenly remembered the many ways people have tried to paint him as a monster in the media, and became sympathetic rather than judgmental. I called my father afterward, and it turns out that Prescot enjoys the benefits of his secretary beyond her exceptional organizational skills, and his wife of twenty years doesn’t know.”

“But your father does.”

“Yes. And now, so do we.”

My lips curve. “Sounds like I owe you and your father a thank-you.”

“All you’d get in return from my father is a demand that I quit my job. He hates me working for anyone but him, especially now with all this bad press.”

“Is he afraid it will overflow to him?”

“No. He’s afraid I’ll get hurt.”

Me too, I think. Me too. “And what did you tell him?”

“I told him I’m his daughter, not his possession. He doesn’t own me any more than you do, and neither of you gets to claim responsibility for my happiness. That’s all mine.”

As she leaves the room, I stare after her in silent agreement. I’m not responsible for her happiness. But I’m not going to be responsible for her misery, either.

Tracey’s Review

some of my favorite books, filled with twists and turns, mysteries, romance, intrigue, and danger. It is literally hard for me to put these books down when I’m reading them, because they are just so compelling. Lisa Renee writes great characters, angsty and real, that draw me in to their worlds, and storylines that hook me every single time. I BELONG TO YOU, the final chapter in Mark Compton’s and Crystal Smith’s story, was no exception.

Over the course of the series, we have come to see the different sides of Mark, but he has always been, without exception, in control. He is a Master, after all, careful to keep his emotions in check, even to the point of losing his beloved Rebecca because of it. In the novellas THE MASTER UNDONE and MY CONTROL, we began to see glimpses of a different Mark Compton, as his relationship with Crystal Smith awakened feelings in him that he kept buried deep down. Crystal also has a past that shaped her and made her a woman determined to forge her own way. She challenges Mark in every way, in the workplace and in the bedroom, refusing to hand over control.

I did not particularly like Mark in previous books. He was aloof, condescending, and very much in charge, and he took great pleasure in letting everyone know that he was the boss. Recently, though, the realization that his actions with Rebecca put her in a position that led to her death, and his feelings of helplessness around his mother’s illness have begun to change him. As his relationship with Crystal evolves and they become a real couple, learning each others’ secrets and earning each others’ trust, Mark emerges as the man that he likely would have been all along, if his past hadn’t taken such a painful turn. This is a Mark Compton that I could actually appreciate, as he has finally come to a place of peace.

Lisa Renee has done a nice job of weaving all of the pieces of this series together to get to the point where we understand the cause of each character’s pain, and are looking forward now to their continued growth. The final book in the series, ALL OF ME, releases in February 2015, and I am looking forward to seeing how she will wrap everything up for all the characters and answer any remaining questions. I would easily recommend both I BELONG TO YOU and the entire Inside Out series as some of my must-read books.

Kelley’s Review

I Belong To You is a very seductive and suspense-filled read.  This is a mini-series that I really didn’t want to see come to an end.  Why do I call it a mini-series?  I call it that because it reads like its own stand-alone series.  The first 3 novellas from Mark’s POV(The Master Undone, My Hunger, and My Control) culminate in this novella .   I feel like Ms. Jones’s skill and talent outshine many other authors because she provides enough information regarding Mark’s backstory for the reader to connect emotionally with his character.  I don’t need to know all the details of Mark and Rebecca’s past relationship to understand that he made some serious mistakes that continue to haunt him.  Ms. Jones gives the reader just enough background that her heart will break for Mark and Crystal as they battle demons from their pasts in order to create a future together.

We start off I Belong To You with Mark still being a person of interest in Rebecca’s disappearance.  The media are hounding him after his D/S relationship with Rebecca was revealed.  At the same time, he is dealing with his mother’s illness and the auction house- he feels his world spinning out of control.  Crystal becomes his rock and solid ground.  With one touch she is able to calm the demons he is wrestling with.  Mark is so afraid of Crystal ending up like Rebecca that he keeps his heart guarded for as long as he possibly can.

Crystal is burning the candle at both ends handling operations of the auction house, keeping clients happy when they call upset about what is going on in the media, and sitting at Mark’s mother’s bedside as she recovers from debilitating treatment.  Crystal loves Dana like a daughter loves her mother.  They have formed an unbreakable bond and it devastates Crystal to see Dana so weakened after her cancer treatments.  She is grateful that Mark has moved back to town because his mother is now driven to get better more than she ever was before.

A beautiful love story unfolds between Crystal and Mark as the walls they have built around themselves begin to crumble and their darkest secrets are revealed.  The man behind the master is finally unveiled and readers will not be able to help but fall in love with Mark Compton.  Lisa writes an amazingly suspenseful and action-packed read as Crystal and Mark stay on alert as danger lurks around every corner.  She kept me flipping the pages and losing sleep because I had to see what was going to happen next!

The only thing I could ask for to make this book even better is a longer epilogue.  I feel like the book ended so abruptly that I did not get to bask in the glow of the happily ever after.  Because Lisa Renee Jones is always surprising us I hope she considers maybe just one more novella for Mark and Crystal to give readers that euphoric feeling they get from a spectacular end to an epic series.  I really enjoyed this mini-series and am looking forward to watching this story unfold into a television series.  Bravo Ms. Jones on a job well done!

By Lisa Reness Jones

Synopsis

I have lost the man I once was, letting guilt and heartache define

who I am. Darkness has controlled me, and one woman has seen what no one else has

seen in me, what I do not wish to exist. I’m consumed with my hunger for her

and my need for her has driven me to the edge of sanity, but no more.

She’s about to find out that the Master has returned.

Excerpt 

Crystal’s POV

I follow him down the stairs, wondering what I’ll find. The tender family man that I’ve glimpsed as he’s cared for his mother? The hard businessman who shut me out after the last time I was here and kept me at a distance? The broken man from the hotel room?

We reach the bottom of the steps and though we turn left, to my right is a dungeon door—which makes me consider another option. Maybe I’m about to see the true Master that I’ve encountered only once before in a bathroom in New York. The memory of him ripping off my panties and demanding that I beg “Mr. Compton” to lick me heats my skin and sets my nerves to jumping. I’d asked, not begged, damn it, and I’d been aroused—which confuses me for reasons I try never to think about.

Kurt stops walking and I realize that we’ve arrived at Mark’s private quarters. He rings a buzzer, and then faces me as the door pops open, giving me a nod. Without so much as a word, he leaves me to enter on my own.

I push open the heavy wooden door and enter the familiar room that seems dipped in a soft glow, a massive four poster bed the centerpiece to various erotic adventures draped in sheer curtains. Those curtains do funny things to my belly that I do not invite, nor do I want to explore. But inching forward, scanning for Mark to no avail, I am forced to search the depths of the room, unable to truly see what’s inside, but certain there’s no human outline.

Finally, my attention goes to a huge archway opening that appears to lead to another room. I swallow hard and move forward. At the entryway I freeze, finding Mark standing in the center of a room with curtains surrounding what looks like another archway leading to a room meant for bondage.

I was right. The Master is here—and he’s the man that I’ve been avoiding. The man who is everything that I do not want.

Inside Out Series- Book 4

By Lisa Renee Jones

Synopsis

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.

Excerpt

no in between teaser 1

My fingers wrap his wrist. “I know you want to protect me, and I love you for that more than you know.”

“Yet too easily, you found a reason to shut me out tonight. Trust isn’t a fair-weather friend. It’s about a willingness to be vulnerable and exposed.”

“And I am willing to do that. That’s why I’m here now.”

He searches my face, and I don’t know what he looks for, what he needs, or what he finds. He releases me abruptly. “Hold out your hands and lace your fingers together.”

Heat rushes through me with the certainty that I’m about to fully understand the painting he’s created of me. This is him sending me a message. He’s not holding back. My confession, as incomplete as it is, has changed nothing. I offer him my arms, aware as I haven’t been in the past few minutes of my naked body, my breasts pressed together.

Chris reaches into his back pocket and produces a roll of art tape, using it to wrap my wrists. Task complete, he bends my elbows and presses my wrists to my chest, his fingers covering the bindings. He has become dark Chris, the dominant Master who never shows emotion; the Chris who arouses me in ways I would never believe a man could.

“Sit down,” he orders, and the way he manages such force with what is no more than a whisper stirs heat low in my body.

My throat is dry and my heart beats so loudly I am certain Chris can hear. I squat and he follows me down, steadying me so I don’t fall without the use of my hands. “All the way,” he murmurs, gently nudging me until my bare backside is on the floor.

He angles my knees up toward my chest, with my feet out enough to stabilize my body. His long lashes lower, half-moons on his cheeks, and I sense him struggling with what has passed between us. He knows I need to see he won’t hold back, but this isn’t just for me. I think he really needs this, too, for me to show him, not tell him, how much I trust him.

Chris tapes my ankles and then throws the roll over his shoulder. My nerve endings are so alive, so on edge that the roll hits the ground like a thundering drum that seems to radiate through the room, through my body. His hands come down on my knees and the touch sweeps over me, awakening nerve endings in the most intimate and unforgiving of places. I feel this man everywhere, I want him everywhere. But as if he knows what I feel, and he means to deny me, he withdraws. I shiver with a sudden cold certain to linger. He will torment me, make me wait for him. Make me beg.

He stands up, towering over me, and I stare up at him, trying to read him, the anticipation of what comes next tingling through me. And it’s supposed to. I see that in his eyes, and I am reminded of his words when I’d first seen the painting. It’s about trust. The kind of trust I want from you and have no right to ask for. He’s going to push me. He’s going to take me somewhere uncomfortable. Somewhere I might not want to go, but I will. With Chris, I will.

5 Star Read

Tracey’s Review

Chris Merritt and and Sara McMillan have worked through all of their personal demons in Paris, and returned to San Francisco, determined to put their pasts behind them and begin their life together. Before they can move forward, though, they are faced with wading through the chaos that awaits them at home. Just when it seems that the mystery behind the disappearance and death of Rebecca Mason has been solved, new questions emerge that leave everything up in the air, and leave them wondering who, exactly, can be trusted.

Lisa Renee Jones had written another fabulous installment in the ‘Inside Out’ series, creating plot twists that leave you wondering where the heck the story is heading. When I started reading this book, I was sure that the whole mystery of what, and at whose hands, had happened to Rebecca. But, in just a few short pages, Lisa Renee managed to throw all that I thought I knew right out of the window. New evidence, less-than-honest disclosures by key players, and a case that threatens to leave everyone involved as collateral damage make for a read that I was unable to put down. Added to the main story, we’re also left asking what ever happened to Sara’s friend Ella. Did she meet the same fate as Rebecca, or is her story really the fairytale that she painted to Sara?

Lisa Renee Jones is the mistress of erotic intrigue, and writes one heck of a cliff-hanger, but the story is just so compelling that I can’t help but eagerly await ‘I Belong To You,’ the next book in the series. Five stars for this hot, sexy, and action packed read.
