Rebecca's Lost Journals a must read if you loved IF I WERE YOU. I didn't think it was possible, but I liked this book even better than the first. After reading If I Were you I could not wait for the next book. I was thrilled to find out that Lisa Renee Jones wrote these journals to fill the void until we get to read Being Me. Remember these can be read alone, but you will understand the characters better after reading If I Were You. For complete reviews, check out MYBOOKADDICTIONANDMORE.---

Another intriguing look into the world of Rebecca and all the players (minus Sara) from If I Were You. I liked the first one, but I loved this one. For such a short book, it had such substance and really moved the story along in a big way.
The oh-so-hot chemistry added to the subtle intricacy in which Ms. Jones weaves in little clues to the mysteries of the Inside Out Trilogy makes this a wonderfully significant piece to the series. Fans of the series have to read this book!!

The second book in the Lost Journals novellas definitely leaves the reader breathless and craving more. In "The Contract", Rebecca's new relationship turns into something she is unsure of if she can continue or not, or if it is going to be a deal breaker for her. Although the novellas are short, it definitely increases the suspense and sex appeal of her new "Master".Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great addition to the Inside Out Trilogy. Lisa Renee Jones has a suggested reading order including all the journals and I read them that way. As she says, it is not necessary to read the journals to read the books but I will say that they definitely enhance the story. It is interesting to read into Rebecca's deepest thoughts and desires about "him". It brings additional light to certain characters.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In order to flesh out Rebecca Mason’s story, Lisa Renee Jones has released a set of companion novellas to the Inside Out Trilogy, Rebecca’s Lost Journals. These journals come in four volumes: each journal is approximately forty pages, containing a different and distinct time period between Rebecca and her Master. Each journal picks up where the last one left off.
In the second journal, “The Contract”, Rebecca recounts the struggles she has with the contract her Master has given to her. She doesn’t know what to think about the contract or her Master’s expectations. Rebecca has many concerns about entering a Dominant/submissive relationship, but her Master does not respond with sensitivity to her concerns, which makes his character difficult to like.
Rebecca’s Lost Journals add depth to the Inside Out Trilogy as you are exclusively in Rebecca’s head. The reader can also see the similarities between Rebecca and Sara more clearly. Additionally, the journals give depth to the main male characters, Mark and Chris, as we read about their interactions with Rebecca. Furthermore, the reader gathers clues to the Rebecca’s Master’s identity. Although the companion serials add to the trilogy, I don’t feel it is necessary to read the journals in order to enjoy the series. The trilogy stands well on its own while the companion does a nice job of supplementing the series if you want to go there.

Great next installment of Rebecca's journals. In this one Rebecca gets the contract from who might soon be her "master". She has to try and decide if she is willing to sign it and give him power over her. You really get a sense of the decision she has to make and how hard it is for her to think about giving up control this way. We still do not know who the Master is, but even being a novella, the story makes a noticeable progression.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A must read after If I Were You
The second of Rebecca's journals picks up right where The Seduction ends. Rebecca still has questions and concerns about entering this relationship with the "Master" but she knows that she wants him. She has the contract and debates whether she could truly accept this type of relationship.
I really enjoyed this chance to see how Rebecca and her Master negotiate and build a relationship. But I have so many questions. I have my idea on who I think the Master is, but we don't know for sure. I also really want to know more about Rebecca's mom and their relationship. If anything, I wish the journals were longer.

Rebecca's Lost Journals are the perfect complement to the Inside Out Trilogy by Lisa Renee Jones. I recommend these reads to anyone reading this series. If you aren't reading this series, you should give it a try. These books and novellas are page turning reads that heat up the pages. If you like erotic romance, you'll love these.
Rebecca debates whether she wants to go further in her relationship with her would be master. We get to see the internal struggle she has over what she wants and how she feels about wanting a relationship where she would be the submissive.
These novellas are steamy, hot reads that will leave you wanting to know what happens to Rebecca and which man is her master. Great reads that I highly recommend. This series is outstanding. Also, make sure you read the series in order to get the most out of each read.

In the beginning Rebecca starts looking over the contract and figuring out what her limits are, when it comes to what is listed as what Mark her soon to be "Master" is expecting from her. For several days she sits at the table looking at the contract and debates on weather or not she is going to give in or not. And since the ball is in her court she has to go to him, he wont come to her. Before she knows it, instead of dealing with the contract her "Master" begins to teach her the role of submission and begins lesson sessions...which turns her world upside down. Plus things are going extremely well for her at the Gallery. Now she needs to really figure out if she is going to sign the contract or not....
This second volume of Rebecca's journals is beyond impressive. You learn and feel more about how dominate Mark really is, and how he wants to try and push Rebecca's limits but always lets her know she has the out by using her safe word and everything will stop. Lisa Renee Jones is a remarkable writer and really knows how to get someone's imagination going. It also makes me realize that when it comes to exploring BDSM I am not alone in my own fears, worries and

Rebecca Mason wants to get her feelings about her life and where she is headed out onto paper so that she can take a look at her life without having it influenced by emotions either hers or others.
In this one the reader learns more about Rebecca as she becomes more involved in the BDSM lifestyle and what it means for her to become a submissive. They also gets a longer look at the man that Rebecca will call master if she signs the contract he gives her. A contract she is not sure she wants to nor should sign. The glimpses that the reader gets into Rebecca’s mind and thinking is enough to have them wanting to read the rest of the novellas and to grab the full length novels. This one is enough to whet the appetite and leave the reader wanting more.

In volume two, we are introduced to "The Contract". Rebecca comtemplates whether or not she can commit to this relationship as defined in the terms. If Recbecca doesn't fully understand what the terms mean, how can she agree to them? If she says no, can she still have him in her life?
There are "clues" as to who The Master is, but dang it, I can't figure it out yet! All the major players are present, and I'm actually leaning towards Ricco. I didn't even really give Ricco a second glance in If I Were You. He just didn't make much of an impact in If I Were You, but now........I guess I'll have to keep reading to find out.I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

THE CONTRACT (Rebecca’s Lost Journals Volume #2) by Lisa Renee Jones
Release Date: February 18, 2013
THE CONTRACT is the second novella (part 2 of 5) in Lisa Renee Jones’ Rebecca’s Lost Journals series. We follow as Rebecca grows into a strong, independent and successful salesperson for The Riptide art gallery; she is a woman coming into herself. But Rebecca is also a woman contemplating a different offer-one that involves being the ’slave’ to her ‘Master.’
When the ‘Master’ offers a contract, Rebecca is as lost and confused as any newbie in the Dom/sub lifestyle. She begins to question the minute details of the contract knowing that the wording could place her in a very precarious position (so to speak). When the ‘Master’ begins to demonstrate what it is he expects from his slave, Rebecca will reconsider exactly what and to whom she is about to turn over control.
Lisa furthers the storyline as a few of the secondary characters are given a voice or frame of reference. There are a couple of men vying for Rebecca’s attention but it is both her boss and her ‘Master’ that will garner most of the journal’s intimate details as well as the continuing series of nightmares that plague Rebecca throughout the books.
THE CONTRACT continues Rebecca’s journey from independent woman to ‘slave’, but it also allows the reader to get a deeper understanding of the nuances behind the fear and anxiety facing a young woman trapped between the life she wants and the lifestyle she is being offered.

“Overall, this novella is a quick and sexy read and will it leave you breathless for more.” ~Under the Covers
The Contract is the Second part to Rebecca’s Journals of the Inside Out Novellas. In this installment, you see Rebecca continue her journey to becoming a Submissive. In this diary format, she jots down her feelings as she explores the contract that was offered to her. But it’s still a mystery of who her “master” is. There are a few clues that make you think who it is but I’m not quite sure it’s someone we’ve met but possibly someone in If I Were you. I know one thing; I
would hate it if her master is Chris Merit.
You also get a glimpse of Rebecca move up in her new career at the gallery. She also talks about her nightmare that really intrigues me. I think there’s just more to these dreams than meets the eye. There are three journals left to this series and I can’t wait to get more clues to Rebecca’s life.
Overall, this novella is a quick and sexy read but will leave you breathless for more. I do recommend reading If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy, #1) and Rebecca’s Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction. It will just give you a better understanding Rebecca. Just remember, every time one of these novellas comes out, we’re closer to the release of Being Me (Inside Out Trilogy #2).

Rebecca had a difficult choice to make. Enjoy her new career at the art gallery, or spice up her life and become a submissive. The choice did not come easy to Rebecca due to the contract that her would be “MASTER” wants her to sign. This book was a HOT read. I have enjoyed the series so far and in my opinion this was a great series to compliment the trilogy that begins with the book IF I WERE YOU. Suggested reading order, IF I WERE YOU, REBECCA’S LOST JOURNAL VOLUME ONE AND THEN VOLUME 2. You can find reviews for all mentioned books at MY BOOK ADDICTION AND MORE. This book was received for the purpose of an honest review.

Excellent suspenseful continuation.
This short story is a companion to IF I Were You (The Inside Out Trilogy) which should really be read before the journals to gain increased understanding of the characters.
"The Contract" is a great continuation from "The Seduction" and it left me wanting more. This journal form of writing is so alluring to me. We access Rebecca’s innermost thoughts, her stream of consciousness is laid bare to us in a way that normal POV writing doesn’t seem to. Rebecca has a quandary to resolve, should she or shouldn’t she sign the contract and become a submissive. She desires this unnamed man like she never has another but has many doubts about this lifestyle and what it entails. Rebecca’s thoughts are so seductive; the reader is drawn into her emotions. We debate the ins and outs of the decision with her as we try to find the clues that will lead us to the identity of he who becomes her master. Lisa Renee Jones knows how to write suspense, she is the true master of this mystery that we hope to unravel.
