If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy, #1)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After inheriting a storage unit from a friend, Sara becomes obsessed with some journals she finds in the unit and decides she needs to find the owner. During her search, she meets the man she thinks may be the subject of the journals as well as another incredibly sexy man she cannot seem to stop thinking about. 
 I really like the characters in this story. We do not really know much about Sara, and I like how the author, rather than telling us her whole past right up front, made her past part of the secrets being unveiled through the story. She seems the shy, quiet "good girl" type, but as the story unfolds we find out she is able to stand up for herself and is not pushed easily. Chris is freaking awesome. I love him. He is Mr. Mysterious, sexy as hell, and carries a sexual tension with him everywhere he goes. The chemistry between him and Sara is fantastically erotic, but he has a way of putting her off balance that makes us as the reader never quite know where their story is going to go next. The rest of the characters at this point are rather remote thus far, but I'm sure hoping we will get to know more about them as the story goes on, particularly Mark. 
This book gives us a glimpse into the world of BDSM, but really it's just a tease. The excerpts from the diaries are a great addition to the book. They show a world of danger, pleasure, pain, love, confusion that Sara just has to find. They make her feel like something is missing in her own life and she will not stop until she finds out exactly what it is. I am very much looking forward to the continuation of this series.




Being Me (Inside Out, #2)Being Me (Inside Out, #2) by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Being Me picks up right where If I Were You left off (which is a good thing since book one left us with one hell of a cliffhanger!). Sara can't seem to get Rebecca and her journals out of her mind to the point of becoming obsessed with this woman she has never even met. Sara's crusade to find the mysterious, fascinating woman leads her to question her own self and everyone she has met along the way. 
Once again the author gave us some amazing characters. In book two we get to delve deeper into Sara's past and find out more about how she got where she is now. Sara is the kind of character almost anyone can relate to. She does not have superpowers or even crazy keen powers of deduction. Up until the day she discovered Rebecca's journals she had lived a pretty normal life. In this book Sara is trying to find herself, who she is, and where she belongs. She questions everyone and everything, afraid of letting go of her control, afraid of losing herself the way Rebecca has been lost. There are people there to help Sara along the way, but she is never really sure who she can trust.  
We also get more of Chris and Mark in this book. Both men are seriously sexy and seriously dangerous – by being around them Sara is at risk of losing herself, just as she fears.
