336 pages

Synopsis:Fascinated by the dark fantasies in the journals she’s discovered, and the two men who have now found a place in her life, Sara McMillan finds herself torn between her new life and her past. Now, more than ever, Sara identifies with the lost journal writer, Rebecca, and is certain that something sinister has happened.

In the arms of the sexy, tormented artist Chris Merit, Sara seeks answers about Rebecca and ends up discovering things about herself she never knew existed. Chris forces Sara to reconsider who she is and what she truly wants from life, but not before his dark desires threaten to tear them apart. Her boss, Mark Compton, offers her the shelter to understand just what those needs mean to her, and what they might have meant to Rebecca, but can she trust him to lead her to a final conclusion to Rebecca’s story?


Words cannot express how much I loved this book, but I'm going to try anyway. 
I loved book one in the INSIDE OUT SERIES-- IF I WERE YOU - it was one of my favorite books of 2012. Needless to say, I had super high expectations for this one. Well, Ms. Jones not only rose to the challenge, she blew those expectations away! If possible it has even more suspense, angst, super-hot sex, as well as really touching love scenes too. 

BEING ME picks up at that oh-so-frustrating cliffhanger from book one. And the action just doesn't stop. From that point on I was hooked and literally read all 300+ pages in the next 24 hours. 

For those of you who hate series because of all the unanswered questions, you will not feel that way reading this one. So many mysteries get resolved, it was so worth the wait - and no cliffhanger! (ok, maybe just a small one - but it is teeny-tiny, I swear!) 

BEING ME was so good, no one (including me) will want to wait for REVEALING US, but luckily, the wait is not nearly as long for that!

BEING ME: 5/5 Stars
Cover: 4.5/5 Stars
Audience Rating: R

WOW! After devouring the first book in this series, If I were You, I had a boatload of questions. I was not a fan of the ending, but it did leave me wanting more and with Being Me Lisa Renee Jones certainly delivered. This book certainly had the same element of mystery and kept me guessing until the very end. Chris and Mark are just as hot in this book as they were in the first and boy those love scenes are steamy. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in this series as I am very curious as to what will happen with everyone as Ms. Jones answered all my lingering questions I had from book 1. I have no doubt that whatever Ms. Jones has in store for us in book 3 will be amazing as this is definitely one of my favorite romantic series that I have read in the past year and she never fails to amaze me.

Being Me:  4.5/5
