Review - His Secrets by Lisa Renee Jones

Book Title: His Secrets (Inside Out Series)
Author: Lisa Renee Jones
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 24, 2014

An Inside Out story, Chris's POV

In a world where my only escape has been my art, Sara has been the light in my darkness. And there is darkness, the kind of inky black that can bleed from my life to hers.

She doesn't see it. She doesn't understand what I've shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon...she will.


The Inside Out series is intriguing, suspenseful, hot, sexy, romantic and keeps me guessing. I enjoyed the erotic, fun, sexy scene with some naughty bdsm toys in the beginning. However Chris' vulnerability, fears, and desire to hide are revealed when their time together is interrupted by someone from his past.

Chris gets a call about his ex, Amber, who is having a meltdown. Sara refuses to be left out, and he is forced to allow her to see what he feels most guilty about and hopes that their love will survive it. Sara accompanies him and gets to witness firsthand Chris' secrets. The questions I had were: Is Amber acting out or manipulating Chris? Is he helping or enabling her out of guilt?

"But her family's death wasn't your fault any more than your mother's dying in a car accident was, Chris. You were mugged and you tried to save them. And the boy you shot--"

"Was a killer. I know, and I'd pull the trigger again if I had to do it over. But that doesn't keep the images of his body or those of Amber's family, from haunting me, nor does it stop my guilt over leading Amber to the whip." I hesitate. "And thinking about her seeking the whip for relief makes me want the whip. ..."

The epilogue had me thinking, "I need more!" That's a great way to end. The novella was just long enough to whet my appetite and keep my interest in the series strong.

This is not a standalone story. You need to read the three full novels in order to understand what is going on.
I received an ARC (advanced reader copy) in exchange for an honest review.
