ALL OF ME = 5 stars! I have LOVED this series from the beginning of Sara's journey, each book brings more to the story and this one does not disappoint. I was given a ARC of this book and as excited as I was to read this, I was also a little sad as it is the last installment (or so we are told)…. I am still holding out that we will get more. Lisa does an AMAZING job with answering all of the questions that are still outstanding in this series. It brings good closure and you see Sara and Chris in a different relationship that we have before. Their love is amazing and they trust each other and where they are going. This is exactly what we were looking for in this book. If they can bring half of what Lisa has in these books to the TV screen, then success for all of us! Great job Lisa. Can't wait to see what you bring us next!

Note to Self: When starting a new book do not be a dozy tart and start with the last one! Which is what I did. However, on the plus side it was a fabulous little novella and having now stalked Ms Jones website I discovered the series has a number of novellas and a couple full lengths and is possibly being made into a TV series! I will be starting at the beginning and working my way through because even though I now know that one couple has a HEA I was lost in places with reference to previous characters and events and totally intrigued by twists, turns, lies and deceit missed. I adored both lead characters, Chris is just divine, tortured bad boy who loves his girl and Sara who supports and loves him faults, foibles, warts and all. Sometimes with this type of dynamic in a couple I tend to not like the female as I prefer strong, sassy in your face heroines but Sara is written with such a tangible love for Chris, such sympathy for the man and the events that have previously unfolded and damaged him that you can see that inner strength shining through and I could not help but be drawn to her. I would recommend starting at the beginning with this series (Duh!). Lisa Renee Jones is a talented lady and this series is so obviously a good one judging from this little piece. ** Slinks off to read If I Were You ** That’s Book 1 by the way!!!  ;)

The final installment in the beloved Inside Out series does a great job of wrapping up Chris and Sara's love story beautifully, and leaves me charged and intrigued to move on to Ella's story. I actually think this is my favorite of the Chris/Sara books, as it shows the strength of their relationship, yet does not deny the difficult times sure to come for the pair. It is obvious that they can weather any storm, as long as they are together. And I loved the detailed descriptions of the setting, dress and decor for the wedding. I am not a wedding-loving gal, and I never grew up dreaming of my wedding day. And yet I loved reading about every detail of Chris and Sara's wedding - a testament to the author's writing, I believe. I do like the way Ella is mentioned throughout, and I can't wait for her story to come!! Additionally, I LOVE seeing Chris/Sara becoming good friends with my FAVE characters in this series, Mark and Crystal. LOVE IT!

He's rich and famous, his past dark, but so is hers. Can they save each other? Or will the darkness tear them apart? "Paint me? As in my skin?" "That's right. All of you-because that's the only thing that will ever be enough." Chris and Sara two tormented souls which have spent there lives running away from their insecurities, nightmares, and the darkness of the past. The deepest darkest secrets one holds tight to ones heart and guards them for eternity. Fate had a different plan for them. Together they shall find a way to overcome the torment and darkness from the past. The author has a spectacular way of describing the characters emotions and entwining them with the past and present through Rebecca's journals, Mark's Art gallery Allure and music.   Author shows the personal growth and maturity on different levels through each of the characters. Elaborate diversification with each of their relationships not only the main characters; also secondary characters. The journey through all the wretched trials, doubt, insecurities;battling their personal demons. A suspenseful romance that takes you into a world which does exist. Tremendous story line.You have outdone yourself once again Lisa Renee Jones. ;) The breathtaking conclusion to the Inside Out Series we have been waiting for, Will Sara & Chris finally  have the wedding we all have hoped for? Will the secrets finally be revealed?  Do Mark and Crystal stay together?  Are broken relationships finally healed? Is Ella finally found? Unexpected visitors make an appearance. Love triangles. What about Rebecca? Will her remains be discovered? Will they all finally face their inner turmoil and personal demons head on and put them to rest? All of me is going to keep you on edge. It's a roller coaster ride and if you're ready for the adrenaline rush step on but be warned, you will be changed forever. Playlist: Everything (Live in studio) by Lifehouse  This one in particular just brings it all together for all the characters. You and Me by Lifehouse Broken  by Lifehouse   All of Me by John Legend Provided the privilege of reading an unpublished version of this novel by the author and publisher.

This is book 6 in the Inside Out Series by Lisa Renee Jones.  I was given an ARC for a fair and honest review. I have had a lot of mixed feelings about reading this final book in the series. All Of Me is a wonderful and poignant ending to an emtional, suspense filled romantic thriller. All of your questions are answered and some you didn 't know you had!  If I could give this a Ten I would. To me all the characters have become a part of my life in ways I never expected!  Sara, Chris, Mark, Crystal, Rey, Chantal, Amber, Tristan, the Walker Brothers, the two art galleries, Ava, Ryan and of course Rebecca. Where would we be if Ella hadn't found Rebecca's Journals???

The trilogy that lasted seven books is finally finished in "All of Me", the concluding novella released as an ebook. We say goodbye to Sara and Chris as they get married. Although this has been a good series, I was not happy with this novella. If you need to see Chris and Sara get married, you should definitely pick it up if you need an HEA. I think this should have been a 99¢ add-on rather than a $4 book because like so many of the books in this series, this was mainly fluff. In fact, with the way Jones ended Rebecca's case, I would have been just as happy with an extended epilogue in "I Belong to You." It felt like Rebecca, our heroine, was forgotten, her case wrapped up with deals handed out to the guilty parties. We got no insight into her murderers, the night she was killed, how she was killed, or where her remains are at...still assuming the poor woman was drowned like her dreams showed? Everything happened behind the scenes and shared in a phone call. There was nothing NEW added about her case and poor Ella is still running around Europe somewhere. Honestly, it has been so long since we've seen Ella, I can't remember much about her nor am I inclined to care to read another three books to get more answers.

I could not put any of these books down. Such an amazing story. I love how she took her time to give us a point of view of each character through a tragic time. Although i really wish rebecca wasnt dead or atleast wishing that a body was found is my only complaint but only because im heartbroken for mark. Im glad i found this series and i wont hesitate to read these books again. I cant wait for the tv show. Once again lisa you did an amazing job .

I have read Chris and Sara's story and from the beginning I loved them. This book was a perfect way to end!

This is a very sweet ending to a pretty angsty series. While this short novel is not without it’s heartbreaking moments, it was wonderful to see the connection between Chris and Sara grow into such trust.  The book wraps up most of the loose ends from the series, although at times it seemed a little sudden. They are agonizing one moment, and the next, it’s fixed. The author did leave us hanging in the wind a little bit on a few things, but that is because there is a spin off series for Ella. I was certainly happy that I don’t have to completely say goodbye to the characters in this series.  There are quite a few moments in this book where you see Chris on the precipice of falling into his old habits, but he quickly remembers what he has to do to find happiness. He doesn’t shut Sara out anymore and it was a relief to know that theirs will truly be an HEA. There is so much turmoil and conflict in their relationship throughout the series, so I enjoyed reading a whole story where the chaos is around them rather than within them.  The wedding is beautiful and gives the reader beautiful closure. However, I would have liked to see an epilogue that took us a little bit beyond their wedding night. But, who knows? Maybe the author will give us a novella in the future. I’d love to visit with Chris and Sara again.

All of me was such a wonderful conclusion. It wrapped up everything, of course with the exception of Ella but that's another story, no really it is another story, 3 books lol I love where everyone ended up like fate and lisa were completely in on it from the beginning! It was just sweet perfection! Now I can't wait to see what is happening to Ella.

When I started this book, every romantic bone in my body swooned.  This was it, after all this time, all the trials, heartache, growth...Chris & Sara are finally getting their happily ever after. I can say, it was everything I expected it to be. Lisa Renee Jones never disappoints in her story-telling. Unlike most authors, she makes sure to not leave any loose ends, but she doesn't rush to close them either.  I felt very satisfied in knowing what was happening, how everyone is doing...because we all know it was never JUST about Chris and Sara.   There are so many different people that make up this series and now a new one to come... I look forward to what is to come when we discover what's going on with Ella. And what's more, when we see the Inside Out Series on TV...to watch these characters come to life on screen will be magical.   If you have't experienced this series yet, don't just take my word for it, pick up the first book and get to know Sara McMillan. Find out just what turns her inside out!

I  knew that the conclusion of the Inside Out series was going to be a hard read for me.  As we bring to the  close the saga of Chris and Sara ...with a touch of Mark and Crystal … everything comes together and the wedding that we have been waiting for is finally here.  Yes, I cried .. yes, I smiled.  The past is finally being put to rest  and the future is looking brighter and brighter.  Or, is it? No, all the questions were not answered.  Rebecca may be gone but someone else is still missing.  And, as  Sara embraces her new family, the old resurfaces.  So, with that said, are we going to see more of our beloved Chris and Sara in the future?  If you have followed the series and have become a Chris Merit fan as I have,   then you can only hope.  There were also a few other twists and turns that included Chantel, Tristen and Rey that also points o this being the true end to the saga around Rebecca but truly not the end.   As in all of Ms. Jones' previous novels, she brings us into a world filled with angst and love.  She gives us a glimpse of what Chris and Sara were and are feeling.  But, in All of Me, she opens Chris up even more and shows us that the past may still linger but it's what's in our present and future that gives us  hope and the will to go on.  At no time, in any of the books, did I feel like a voyeur looking into  someone else's life .. Ms. Jones made us feel welcome and truly wanted in all of their lives.  She made us feel like family and treated us all with respect without the story being too out there, the sex being  far-fetched or the love being too over-the-top.  I thank her for that.  With the true gift of telling a story,  Lisa Renee Jones concluded the Inside Out series with class and left me in tears.

A BEAUTIFUL FINALE AND THE BEST STORY IN THE SERIES. This final Inside Out story is a wonderful conclusion to the series! I was thrilled at the very satisfying directions all of our favorite characters' lives have taken, especially Mark and Crystal, Chantal, and, most importantly, Sara and Chris. It was Sara's arrival in San Francisco at the Allure gallery which began this entire series, and the impact she had on both the Rebecca mystery and the lives of Chris, Mark, and the others she touched is profoundly and meaningfully explained in ALL OF ME. The best of this book for me is the bone-deep connection between Sara and Chris; the romance, the love, the sex, the intimacy between them is off-the-charts fabulous. The way Chris understands and protects Sara, and the darkness she dispels in him...it's the kind of fantasy and escapism that only the best romance books provide. I loved it! My only disappointment is that we never got to hear any of this wonderful last chapter in their love story from Chris' point of view....just a moment of it would have elevated this story to all-time favorites for me. It's still an absolutely beautiful story, full of passion, pain, true love, and happy endings; five stars! Happily, we can hope to see these characters again in Lisa's next series, the trilogy she has planned which tells Ella's story. I'm almost as anxious as Sara is to find Ella! SERIES READING ORDER: If I Were You, Rebecca's Lost Journals (a bundle pack which provides insight as Mark's story develops but can be omitted without impacting enjoyment of the series), Being Me, Revealing Us, His Secrets (a novella providing the only contribution of Chris' point of view), The Master Undone (novella in Mark's POV; also available in the Rebecca's Lost Journals e-book bundle), My Hunger (novella in Mark's POV), No In Between, My Control (novella in Mark's POV), I Belong to You, All of Me *I received a complimentary copy of ALL OF ME from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.*

4.5 stars This book was exactly what I needed to understand more about the mysterious artist Chris Merit.  If you have not read this series you need to stop and start reading it from the very beginning.  The journey that Author Lisa Renee Jones is able to take you on will be amazing!! Sara and Chris continue to take their relationship to the next level.  But with that comes finally allowing that person know everything about you, inside and out, the good and bad.  Their story has been a whirl wind of emotions from the beginning.  And to finally see it all come together was just perfect. Secrets and truths from throughout the series come to light.  We learn a lot of the unanswered questions that sat at the back of your mind as you were reading this series.  We get to see the true Chris Merit; the reason he is the way he is.  If Chris had not already taken a small part of your heart, he will in this book.   We get a small bit of my favorite character, Mark Compton and what his future holds for him.  What a changed man he is too.   Also we learn that the mystery behind Ella’s disappears will be the next series from Author Lisa Renee Jones.  I am just a bit excited to see where that will lead us.
