The fourth in the Inside Out erotic romance series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, this steamy novel resolves Chris and Sarah's relationship and leads into Mark's story.
"Chris and I have faced our demons and bared our souls to one another in Paris. Now that we are back home in San Francisco, I want to believe that nothing can tear us apart. Not Ava’s accusations against me to the police, or Chris's fear that he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. And not Mark, who was once too intimately a part of our lives, and who I can see crumbling inside out. He believes he is invincible, just as I want to believe Chris and I are invincible. We have to be invincible. We need each other too much for any other ending."
If you have read my reviews in the past, you know I am a HUGE FAN of Lisa Renee Jones and her Inside Out Series. I continue to fall in love with her characters and her amazing writing style. This is one of those series that sticks with you, long after you finished reading. I catch myself thinking about these characters and where Lisa is going to take us next. Will the mystery ever come to an end? Will we ever find out what actually happened to Rebecca? Is there more of a connection between certain characters than we realize? I could keep going with all of these questions. But if finding the answers means that this series ends, then I don’t want them. Keep me in the dark, so I may stay in this beautiful world full of mystery, suspense, passion, and deep love.
Before Sarah and Chris can plan their future, they have to get through the shit storm that is the media. Both have demons, and probably will always have them, but they are working through it the best they can. They are both in this together….all or nothing, no in between. These two are stronger than ever. Their love for each other runs too deep to have anyone or anything mess that up for them. Chris stole the show in this one. Of course, he is still dealing with his darkness, and he is tested like no other in No In Between, but you get to witness how strong this man has truly become with Sarah by his side, making him whole.
Mark is back, and he is struggling with control. He continues to warn Sarah away from him, and even though Sarah doesn’t feel for him, like she does Chris, she still feels the need to try to ease his pain by helping him come to terms with what he really felt for Rebecca. It’s incredibly heartbreaking and intense, and Mark’s emotions, no matter how much control he has, fly off the pages and tears out your heart.
I can tell you that the answer to Rebecca’s disappearance is revealed in this book, but is it really? You will have to read it to find out. But whatever you think you know, whatever is revealed, I can tell you, the story is FAR from over.
This series and this story is all-consuming. I was desperate to learn more about these characters and the mysteries and secrets behind each one of them. I cannot and will not ever have enough. I find myself hanging on to every word until I’m out of breath and gasping for air. These characters will forever be embedded in my heart and soul. Lisa Renee Jones is superb at her craft and will always be my GO TO author.
The Inside Out Series MUST be read in order. If you haven’t started it yet, you NEED to ASAP! Believe me, your world will be a better place with Chris, Sarah, and Mark in it.
(No In Between (INSIDE OUT #4), Sara’s POV)
“I don’t doubt us.”
“You do. But we’re going to fix that and I’ve already figured out there’s only one way to do that, aside from me melting down and you realizing that I’m here to stay. I’ve taken things slowly to protect the trust between us, but we’re ready for what comes next, and I’m going to push you and push you hard. I’m going to tear down every inhibition you own until I own them. I’m going to make you crazy wondering what will be next and even crazier when it comes. I’m going to take you to places you think you can’t go, and find out you can. And when you say ‘I do’ to me, there won’t be any doubts or any barriers left. Are you prepared for what that means?”
“Yes,” I whisper. “It’s what I’ve been asking for.”
“Then we start now.” He turns me to face the counter, shocking me by yanking my skirt up and palming my cheeks. His eyes meet mine in the mirror. “I’m going to spank you. There won’t be any foreplay or fucking after. It’s going to sting. You will not cry out. When I’m done, I’m leaving, and you will bring your pretty little backside and sit down next to me like nothing happened. And when I’m ready, I’ll fuck you. Choose now. Accept it or not.”
The idea is horrifying and sexy, and I’m wet and aching and so many things at once that I can barely breathe. “I . . . yes. Yes, I do.”
He yanks my panties off and stuffs them in his pocket. His hand comes down on my backside and it’s such a shock, I barely swallow my yelp. Already his palm is on me again. I try to count. Three. Four. Five. Oh God. Six.
He turns me to face him, his hands going to the counter, not touching me. I’m panting in pain and pleasure, my knees weak. “Pull your skirt down and come back to the table. I want you there in two minutes. If you take one second longer, I’ll bring you back in here and spank you again. Understand?”
