|Picture & Overview from B&N|
Wow. ESCAPING REALITY had me on the edge of my seat from the very first page! I was hooked. “Amy. My name is all that is written on the plain white envelope taped to the mirror. ”
From the start you are thrust into a world where surviving is essential. Amy has had a horrible, traumatizing experience happen to her. Anyone can tell because of the constant paranoia that hangs over her and the fact that she’s on the run. Again. Throughout the entire novel you are left wanting to know more… Why is she running? Who is she running from? Can she be saved? Is her handler trustworthy? What the hell is going on!?!
Then when you think Amy is about to embark on a new, well, everything & be all alone since she’s on the run again we meet…HIM. “I start to lift my hand and hesitate with the oddest sense of this moment changing my life in some way. Pushing past the crazy thought, I press my palm to him. ‘Nice to meet you, Liam. I’m Amy.”
Liam is a take-charge kind of guy who leaves you hot and panting. He’s dominant and not afraid to go after what he wants and what he wants desperately is Amy. The passion between Amy and Liam is electric…scorching. The way he reads her is almost unreal. “He lowers his voice. ‘You do know I couldn’t let you run, don’t you?’ ‘I wasn’t–” ‘You were’ ‘If you think that, then why’d you come after me?’‘Because you didn’t want to run. You just thought you had to.’
ESCAPING REALITY wasn’t just a romance. It was an intense mystery that left me on the edge of my seat with every new piece of information I got. I want to know more…I need to find out what happens next. The plot was awesome and the characters were well-developed. Lisa Renee Jones is excellent at mixing mystery with romance and I promise you’ll be left wanting more as well!!! “I surprise myself by smiling, ‘I didn’t even get to examine the many attributes of Pi.’ His lips curve. ‘Baby, you can examine it, lick it, do whatever you want to do to it and me, after I feed you. I promised. I meant it.”
The only reason ESCAPING REALITY didn’t get a 5 star review from me is because in some parts of the book it seemed as if the scenes just weren’t plausible. I love books where I can really picture this happening to someone but in some instances that just wasn’t the case here. This did not take away from my overall enjoyment of the book. I loved it and encourage anyone and everyone to read it. Like…now!
