Okay, so if ya’ll don’t already know I’m a total sucker for anything written by the lovely Lisa Renee Jones. She is one of my top 10 favorite authors because her writing is just so pure. I fall in love with the characters because they are..well…awesome but also because they have depth and are high relatable. REVEALING US is no different. I’ve been in love with Chris and Sara for ever. But that’s just it…every freakin’ character in this series I’ve loved. Sara, Chris, Mark, the list goes on and on. I mean, Lisa Renee Jones keeps giving us these mind-blowing characters and I seriously cannot get enough.[end rant] Sorry, anyway….
REVEALING US is the third and final installment of the INSIDE OUT series. In this breathtakingly, passionate novel we finally understand who Chris is and why he is the way he is. We’re introduced to his “Paris side” and we get full disclosure..eventually. The chemistry between Chris and Sara is bumped up a notch in this book and man, oh, man I swooned every time he touched her. I’m serious…I got chills during some of the more *ahem* insanely intimate parts.
“I don’t know how to love you and not protect you,” he says, and my eyes lift at his soft confession. My heart thunders as he adds, “And I don’t know how to protect you and not overwhelm you. I’m always going to be on edge. I’m always going to think…too much.”
See? Definitely swoon-worthy, right?!? And this is not even half of it! I promise you will fall in love all over again with the intensity between these two. It’s amazing.
“Breathe, baby,” he murmurs near my ear. “I’ll take good care of you.” “I know,” I whisper. “Just take good care of me quickly, before my heart explodes from my chest.”
The plot-line of REVEALING US had the same mysteriousness to them as the two other books and it kept my rapt attention for the duration of the 7 hours I had it read in. I couldn’t put it down..I wanted to know more…I had to know more.
The ending left me spinning and wanton just like a good book should and I’m not going to say more on that. Just…read it for yourselves already!!! I’m giddy just thinking about someone else reading it and taking it all in..ah…..you’ll love it. I promise!
