Lisa Renee Jones – The Inside Out Trilogy

by Maryse on September 3, 2012 · 9 comments

in Alternative, Reading Order Guide:

Really enjoyed the first book in the upcoming trilogy, and very much want to know more. Here’s the quick “gist” of it:

Sara involves herself in looking for “Rebecca”, a stranger who has recently just… “disappeared” and nobody seems too worried about it. After finding Rebecca’s private journals, Sara makes it her mission to find the truth. Entrenching herself into Rebecca’s prestigious and affluent “art” world, she meets two gorgeous and wealthy men, but there’s just something… off about them. Working for one, and dating the other she begins questioning if she be involving herself with either. And can she help herself not to?

Check out my review of “If I Were You” (book #1)

About book #1:

He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.

About the novellas (Rebecca’s Lost journals) the author says:

The journals read like stories and begin the first time Rebecca visits the gallery in the INSIDE OUT TRILOGY. You will meet Mark, Chris, Ava, Amanda, Ricco, and all the series characters as she does AND there are tons of clues to what happens in BEING ME in the first 4 serials. They are woven within the story ready for your discovery, as is Rebecca’s dark, erotic journey.

About the future of the series (as found on her Facebook page):

I’m getting so bombarded with questions about books 4 and 5 of the INSIDE OUT Series and Ella that here are the blurbs that are UNOFFICIAL before the big announcement. I do not have dates yet. They will coincide with other fun things going on with the series I cannot talk about yet.

If you haven’t read the novella Master Undone or Rebecca’s journals they are important to understand Mark and what he goes through in #4 and #5.

Also my Coming Soon page explains Ella and that characters you already know will get a side story in a s 3 part serial as well. No announcement on who those characters will be. Can’t wait to share!

Unofficial Blurb — Sara’s POV

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 the accusations from Ava against me that I have not yet escaped or Chris’s fear that as I run to him, not away from him, he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. Not Mark who had once been too intimately a part of our lives and who tries to act strong but I can see him 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.

Unofficial Blurb – Mark’s POV


Being that person, that man is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need…her.

Also note just like I am doing more books in the Tall, Dark, and Deadly series, a trilogy is meant to wrap up some aspect of the story. And I did intend to do #4 in Mark’s POV but decided there are things that need to be concluded in Sara’s and that Mark isn’t quite ready in #4 to bare ALL. But he will in 5. Oh yes. He will.

And obviously there are 5 novellas in the series. It has been more than 3 trilogy books all along. A lot of people have missed those novellas thinking they companion material not stories so please help spread the word if you don’t mind.

Wow, what an ending. Had me immediately searching the internet to see if I could find a sneak peek anywhere. Super good story, but man it is going to drive me crazy waiting for the 2nd book. Hope it is sooner than the February date that was mentioned. Whew, I just don’t know if I can make it that long, lol. :)
