Review: Rebecca's Lost Journals #1: The Seduction by Lisa Renee Jones

       As many of you probably saw, earlier this week we hosted a stop on Lisa Renee Jones' blog tour to promote the upcoming release of volume one of Rebecca's Lost Journals: The Seduction which comes out January 28th. When I heard Lisa was writing these to accompany her Inside Out Trilogy, I was so excited, and since then I've been anticipating them even more than book 2, Being Me. Well, this week I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak.
      The first of five novellas, Rebecca's Lost Journals: The Seduction, tells the background story that is basically the prequel to If I Were You, book 1 of the Inside Out Trilogy. In If I Were You, we meet Sara who finds and reads the secret (and very sexy) journals of Rebecca who has mysteriously abandoned them in an auctioned off storage unit. Sara is so caught up in the mystery that surrounds Rebecca's seemingly sudden departure, she searches for answers, and as a result becomes very much a part of the world she has been reading about. (if you haven't yet read If I Were You, I highly recommend it - see my review- the ebook is available now and the paperback will be out again this spring).

       ** SPOILER ALERT ** If you have not yet read If I Were You, STOP HERE. I give no spoilers to the journals, but some mild spoilers to If I Were You you might not want to know yet **

       Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume One: The Seduction, is exactly what I'd hoped for. We see Rebecca's entrance into the BDSM lifestyle Sara is just getting a hint of by the end of If I Were You. And it gives us more of the world we've been missing while we wait for Being Me, including those gorgeously hot men Chris and Mark, and adds some details we can only learn from Rebecca herself. We don't get a whole lot of answers yet, but there are some clues thrown in there if you are paying attention. Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume One: The Seduction is a short 40 pages that I flew through in one sitting, practically begging for more when I got to the end. Luckily, I don't have to wait that long since the next one comes out less than a month after the first!
