Revealing Us

No talking. No in between. All or nothing, Sara. I’m offering that to you, and you have to decide if you really want it. There’s a reservation in your name with American Airlines. I’ll be on the plane. I hope you will be, too.

Chris had issued that ultimatum and deadline and left me sitting on my missing best friend’s bed, staring at the empty doorway where he’d stood moments before. Emotions explode inside me and twist me into knots. He sought me out, found me here. After our devastating fight last night, he still wants me to go to Paris with him. He wants to find “us” again. But how can he expect me to pick up and leave at a moment’s notice? I can’t just leave—but . . . He’s leaving. I can barely breathe at the idea of losing him and, deep down, I know if I let him leave, I will lose him. We have to talk. We have to work through what happened last night before we leave for Paris.

With a jerky movement I reach for my phone, punching the button to auto-dial Chris. My heart hammers in my chest as I wait for him to answer.

Ring. Ring. Ring. Ring.

Then his voice, deep and raspy in that sexy way, fills the line. It’s his voice mail. My fingers tunnel through my long brown hair and helplessness rolls through me. No. No. No. This is not happening. It can’t happen. It’s too much, after nearly being killed by Ava last night. How can Chris not know this is too much right now? I want to scream at the phone.

I dial again, hear the unbearable ringing tone over and over, and I get his voice mail again. Damn! I’ll have to go try to catch him at home before he leaves for the airport.

I jump to my feet and rush for the door, my hand shaking as I flip the lock closed. I pray that Ella will return safely from her trip to Europe. I’m unable to help comparing her silence to Rebecca’s. I shiver as I step into the dark corridor outside Ella’s apartment, wishing I was in Chris’s arms. Wishing I could forget the hell of Ava killing Rebecca and then trying to kill me.

Once I’m in the parking lot, I glance at the apartment building and my gut twists into knots. “Ella’s okay,” I promise myself as I unlock my silver Ford Focus and slide inside. And it’s clear to me that I have two reasons to go to Paris: Chris and Ella. And they are good ones.

The drive to the apartment I share with Chris is less than fifteen minutes but feels like an eternity. By the time I pull into the drive in front of the fancy high-rise I am one big ball of tension. I hand my keys to the attendant, a new guy I don’t know. “Hold my car here, please.” The very act suggests I’m thinking of going to the airport.

Even if I do, I tell myself, it doesn’t mean I’m getting on the plane. Not yet. Not like this. I’ll convince Chris to delay the trip.

I barely see the lobby as I rush through it and step into the elevator. The doors close and I am suddenly, ridiculously nervous about seeing him. It’s insane. This is Chris. I have no reason to be nervous with him. I love him. I love him as I have never loved another human being. Yet the ride to the twentieth floor is excruciating, and I wish I had asked the attendant if Chris was in the building.

“Please be here,” I whisper as I near my destination. “Please be here.”

The elevator dings and the doors slide open. For a moment, I just stare into the open space of the entrance to our apartment. Our apartment. But will it still be our apartment if I don’t go with him to Paris? Just last week he’d pulled away from me, shut me out over the loss of Dylan, a child stolen by cancer, instead of letting me help him through the pain. He’d made me feel that my “home” with him had been stripped away. He’s sworn that will never happen again, that I would never feel that lost again in the future—but the future is now, and I do.

Lost without him.

“Chris,” I call out, stepping into the foyer, only to be answered by silence. Two steps inside the apartment, and I am as hollow inside as I have ever been. He isn’t here. He’s gone.

I slowly turn to face the sunken living room and floor-to-ceiling windows, where the early dawn is beginning to creep over the city. Memories flood my mind, so many memories of Chris and me in this room, in this apartment. I can smell him, almost taste him. Feel him. I need to feel him.

Flipping on a dim light, my gaze catches on something clinging to the window. A taped note, and my chest tightens as I realize it’s in the exact spot Chris had once fucked me, and made me feel heat and passion and yes, the fear of falling. And fall I had. For him.

I walk down the steps, past the furniture, and tug the note from the window.

Sara—

Our flight is at nine. You need to be there an hour early to ensure you get through security, and international luggage has a strict cutoff time. It’s a long flight. Dress comfortably. Jacob will be downstairs to drive you at seven to allow for traffic. IF you decide to come.

Chris

No “I love you.” No “please come.”

But then, there wouldn’t be. This is Chris, and while I don’t know all of his secrets, I do know him. I know this is one of his tests. I know he needs this to be my decision, not influenced by his words. That’s why he’s not here.

Realization hits me hard: I know this. I know what he is thinking. I know him. The words are comforting. In the ways that matter, I know him.

I turn and look at the clock near the kitchen entry to my left and I swallow hard. It’s almost six now. I have an hour to decide if I’m leaving the country with Chris, and to pack.

I sink to the floor, leaning against the very window I’d leaned on that first night he’d brought me here. I’m exhausted, and I feel just as naked and exposed as I had then.

One hour. I have one hour to make it to the airport if I decide to go. My jeans are dirty from rolling around on the ground while a crazy woman tried to kill me, and my hair feels like a long, dark drape that’s as heavy as my thoughts. I need a shower. I need sleep.

I need to make a decision about what I’m going to do, right now.

•   •   •

Dressed in a soft black velvet sweat suit with a bag over my shoulder, I stare at the gate labeled “DFW/Dallas” and “Paris.” My heart is in my throat.

I’m here. I have a bag on my shoulder. I have a boarding pass. I draw in a labored breath and I think I might be on the verge of hyperventilating, something I’ve done only twice before in my life. Once when I was told a heart attack had killed my mother, and once when I was in Rebecca’s storage unit and the lights went out. Why I’m doing it now, I don’t know. I just feel so damn out of control.

My name is called over the intercom. I have to board.

Somehow, I step forward and raise my hand to let the attendant know I’m here. I hand her my ticket without really seeing her, and my voice is raspy when I reply to questions that I don’t remember two seconds later. I need to get this weird breathing in check before I pass out; I’m definitely hyperventilating. I hate that I’m this weak. When will I finally not be this weak?

My knees wobble as I lift my Louis Vuitton carry-on bag, which Chris bought me when we’d traveled to Napa to meet his godparents, over my shoulder.

I’ve made it to the boarding ramp. I round the corner, and my heart skips a beat. Chris is standing at the door of the plane waiting for me, and he looks deliciously male and so perfectly him in his jeans, navy T-shirt, and biker boots. With one-day stubble and his longish blond hair a wonderful finger-rumpled mess, he is rugged perfection. And everything else fades away but him, and everything in my world is right.

I start running toward him and he meets me halfway, pulling me into his warm, strong arms. His addictive rich, earthy scent invades my senses and I am alive, breathing freely, my feet on solid ground, with no doubt left in me. I belong with Chris.

I wrap my arms around him and press into his hard body. His mouth comes down over mine and the taste of him, spicy and male, overwhelms me in all the right ways.

I am home. I’m home because I’m with him. And I kiss him as if I will never kiss him again, as if I’m dying of thirst and he is all that can quench me. And I believe he is. He has always been the answer to the question of what was missing from my life, even before I met him.

He tears his mouth from mine and I want to pull him back, to taste him just a little longer. I’m breathing hard again, but from emotion and need, and passion.

He brushes my silky, freshly washed hair from my face and stares down at me with earnest green eyes. “Tell me you’re here because you want to be, not because I forced you.”

“You aren’t leaving without me,” I promise him, and I hope he hears everything that means. I haven’t said that he isn’t leaving. I’ve said he isn’t doing it without me.

Instant understanding fills his face, seeping into the depths of his probing stare. “I didn’t want to force you,” he says, his voice gravelly, tormented. This man lives in a tormented state I burn to make go away. He hesitates. “I just needed—”

“I know what you needed,” I whisper, my fingers curling on his jaw. I understand what I should have before now. “You needed to know that I love you enough to do this for you. You needed to know that, before you let me discover whatever you think I’m going to discover in Paris.”

“Mr. Merit, we need you to board now,” a stewardess calls from the doorway.

Neither of us looks at her. We watch each other and I see the emotions playing on Chris’s face, the emotion he lets only me see. And that means everything to me. He wants me to see what he’s never shown anyone else.

“Last chance to back out,” he says softly, and there is a raw, hesitant quality to his voice, a dash of what I think is fear in his eyes. Fear that I will back out?

Yes, I think so, but there is more there, too. He is also afraid I won’t back out, afraid of what he hasn’t revealed yet. And it’s hard not to fear this right along with him, when I’ve seen some pretty dark sides to Chris. What awaits us in Paris? What is it that he thinks will rock me when I discover it?

“Mr. Merit—”

“I know,” he says sharply, without looking away from me. “It’s time. Sara—”

“Whatever it is,” I say, “I can handle it. We can handle it.” I think of him fighting for my honor with my ex and my father. Chris is giving me what I want by opening the closed doors of his life, his emotions, and I won’t make him sorry. I’ll fight for him and us.

I lace my fingers with his. “Let’s go to Paris.”

•   •   •

On the plane, my hope of some privacy is quickly dashed when we stop at the first row and I discover an elderly woman in a bright purple shirt occupying the aisle seat next to us. She gives me a smile that is as boldly friendly as her tropical shirt, a smile I manage to return, considering I’m a load of emotional baggage, not to mention an uneasy flier.

Chris motions me forward and I sit by the window, while he fits my bag into the overhead bin. I’m spellbound by this man who has become my world. My gaze traces the handsome lines of his face, the broadness of his shoulders, the flex of muscle beneath his snug T-shirt. And just thinking about how deliciously powerful he looks when he’s wearing nothing but the vivid dragon tattoo of reds, yellows, and blues exposed beneath his right sleeve, sends heat dashing through my body. I love that tattoo, and the link it holds to the past I’m now going to fully discover. I love him.

After closing the overhead compartment, Chris murmurs something I can’t hear to our elderly companion, who smiles in reply. I smile watching them interact until I catch a moment of bleakness in Chris’s eyes, reminding me of the pain he hides beneath all his sexy charm. My decision to travel to Paris with him was absolutely the right one. Somehow, some way, I’m going to make that pain go away.

As Chris settles into the seat between me and our companion, I glance at the Band-Aid on his forehead and then at the bandage covering his arm. I knew he’d cut his head last night, but not his arm.

My stomach flutters at how easily he could have died, crashing his bike on the lawn to try to save my life. “How are you?” I ask, gently covering the bandage with my hand.

“The head was more minor than I thought. The arm was a surprise, but a few stitches and it’s fine.” His hand covers mine—big and warm, and wonderful. “And the answer to your question is, I’m perfect. You’re here.”

“Chris.” His name comes out as a silky rasp of pent-up emotion. There is so much unspoken between us, so much tension created from the fight we had before I’d left for Mark’s house, and he’d followed. “I—” Laughter from the row behind us cuts off my words, reminding me of our lack of privacy. “We need to—”

He leans in and kisses me, a soft caress of lips against lips. “Talk. I know. And we will. When we get home, we’ll figure it all out.”

“Home?”

“Baby, I’ve told you.” He laces our fingers together. “What’s mine is yours. We have a home in Paris.”

Of course he has a home in Paris. I just hadn’t given it any thought until now. My gaze drops to where our fingers are twined and I wonder: Will his house there feel like home to me, as well?

Chris touches my chin and I look at him. “We’ll figure everything out when we get there,” he repeats.

I search his face, looking for the confidence in his vow that a man who is always in control would have, and I don’t find what I seek. The shadows in his eyes tell a story of doubt. Chris isn’t certain we’ll figure things out—and because he’s not certain, neither am I.

But he wants us to, and so do I. His words have to be enough for now, but we both know it’s not enough for the future. Not anymore.

    Am I the only person to find Chris's deep dark secret anticlimatic? Understandably upsetting,but something he was terrified would turn Sara against him? It just didn't wash. That and the fact that there are so many loose ends make this book very disappointing. I loved the first two books and the novellas, but once again an author has mislead about it being a trilogy. Also, the books were too expensive for the amount of reading material and that it's an e-book.

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Gallery Books and Edelweiss.)
    This is the third book in the ‘Inside Out’ series, and kicks off where book 2 ‘Being Me’ left off.
    **Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2 ‘If I Were You’ and ‘Being Me’.**
    Sara is unsure whether to go to Paris with Chris, but her heart wins out, and she follows him across the Atlantic.
    What kind of a relationship does Chris really want with her though? Can he give up the BDSM? What has happened to Rebecca? What has happened to Sara’s friend Ella? And why are the police concerned about Sara leaving the country?


    This was an okay book, I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed that we didn’t get more answers though. I also thought that this was the final book in the trilogy, but instead it seems that there are 2 more books planned!

    Sara started to irritate me a bit in this one. Following your boyfriend to Paris could be seen as romantic, but it could also be seen as neediness, and Sara was really toeing the line here for me. She continually told Chris that she was a big girl and could stand on her own 2 feet, but then continued to obsess over where he was and what he was doing. She also kept jumping to the wrong conclusions every 10 minutes, and making really silly decisions that basically proved him right when he said that she couldn’t look after herself.

    The plotline in this book was quite basic, it was basically Chris and Sara in Paris, and other than a few misunderstandings nothing much happened. We did get to read a few more entries from Rebecca’s journal, which did give us a few more clues as to what had happened to her, but considering how small that part of the book was, this book could have been a lot, lot shorter.

    The romance/love making was okay, but a couple of times it was a little sudden, with practically no fore-play, and I didn’t feel the heat and sexiness the way I did with the first book.

    I also have to say that I thought this was a trilogy, yet now there are at least 5 books plus novellas. I checked back and when the first book was published it was called ‘Inside Out Trilogy’, and I actually feel quite disappointed that this wasn’t the end. I was expecting some answers – I can’t even hear the name Rebecca without thinking of this series, and once again I’m left waiting for the next book, which is a bit frustrating. This book just felt like a ‘holiday-in-Paris’, and I’m not sure that for the amount of answers we got, it was worth this being a full-length novel.
    Overall; and okay story, but I expected more.
    6.75 out of 10.

    Disappointing

    This book is a good example of how this trend of stretching a story into a trilogy can easily backfire. There is nothing interesting about this story: Chris' secrets are lame and the whole trip to Paris is boring and uneventful, except for a few fragmented events here and there that amount to nothing in the end. With such a weak storyline, all the drama was provided by the main characters. And here is the problem: Sarah became an abnoxious, clingy girlfriend and Chris, a moody, drama queen with some outbursts of BDSM. The first two books were great and the story should have ended there, in a high note and with a real heroine and hero. This third book is just a way to rip $$ off a loyal audience. Shameful, really.

      After reading 50 Shades of Grey, I went in search of something

      After reading 50 Shades of Grey, I went in search of something similar because I was not ready for that series to end... Alas... I cam Across the Inside Out Trilogy.....




    Revealing Us is the third and final novel in the Inside Out Trilogy by Lisa Renee Jones. Mainly dealing with Sara and Chris' relationship, trying to solve Rebecca's death and a missing friend as well. Throughout this book Sara deals with even more issues and has to come to terms with quite a few things that she may not have wanted to in the beginning... This was another great book and as I am very sad to see this series end, I plan on going back and re-reading the entire series with Rebecca's Lost Journals in between while I read so that I can gain a deeper understanding.
    Chris does have a few skeletons, but then again who doesn't.. He really is trying to let Sara inside to see the real him deep down inside.... but is he going to succeed? Sara is trying to break down Chris' walls and help him see the light and break him away from his dark need for the facets of the BDSM lifestyle that he is drawn into... But is she strong enough to bring him out of the darkness?
    This is a MUST read for anyone that is into the erotic romance genre, or BDSM and mystery... If you don't read this series from the beginning, you are missing out!!




    I give this book 5 out of 5 shields!

    I really liked this book, but it was softer? This was more about Chris and Sara finally finding themselves within their relationship. However, I felt like nothing was really resolved. Yes, Chris told her his "secret" but there are far more disturbing creatures to deal with. And their names are Amber and Isabel. I don't think I could dislike them more if I tried! They are both conniving, manipulative wenches and are trying everything possible to come between Sara and Chris. Which brings me to the other new characters. I would love to learn more about Tristan. I can't get a good read on him. Neuville, he seems to be another Mark. I'm eager to learn more about him and what happened with him and Ella. Chantal, she is becoming a fast friend to Sara and Chris. I really like her and her spunk. And Rey, though he's in a few scenes we don't really get to know him.




    I was a little upset that we didn't get any Mark after his novella. I really want to know what is going on with him and Crystal. And we haven't found out what happened to Ella yet. I know this was supposed to be a trilogy and was slated to end with Revealing Us, but I'm glad we get more of these characters.




    I'll update with the name of the next book and tentative release date when I get the info.




    I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Lisa Renee Jones has become the new Master of romantic suspense!

    Lisa Renee Jones has become the new Master of romantic suspense! 




    I finished book two in the Inside Out Series, BEING ME, with a big sigh - there was just so much tension - so much that happened so quickly in that book and it's predecessor IF I WERE YOU -- I felt like I was on a roller-coaster trapped inside a twister (in a good way!). I have to admit, I was wondering where Ms. Jones could possibly take us next. And while there is a completely different feel to REVEALING US from the previous two books, it is still oh-so-good in its own right. Lisa Renee Jones has done what few authors can accomplish -- write three unique books that form a cohesive trilogy while still amazingly great books alone as individuals. 




    Once again, this book picks up right where the previous one left off. Where the other books featured lots of hot sex with a bit of romance, this one pulls out all the stops in the romance department. Or I should say Romance, with a capital "R"! Don't get me wrong, there is still more than enough scorchingly-hot sex to make you squirm in your seat, but the dynamic of Sara's life has definitely shifted. We get to see some old favorites and a few new characters are introduced (both likable and not-so-likable ones) - and some mysteries we thought were closed might not as resolved as they appeared. It's hard to write more without giving away any spoilers, but trust me, you are not going to want to put this one down either! And as I was nearing the end, feeling that familiar sadness any book-lover knows too well as they are about to say goodbye to their fictional friends...I realized this couldn't be the end. I wanted more, and I'm still hopeful this isn't the last we'll see of these characters. Even if it is the end of this series, I cannot wait to see what Ms. Jones has up her sleeve next!

    It doesn¿t come as a surprise that the Inside Out Trilogy has be

    It doesn’t come as a surprise that the Inside Out Trilogy has been a huge hit. Not many authors can write stories with such vivid plot and/or possess the knack & audacity to create characters that can leave a stamp in your mind and heart.

    Revealing Us is the 3rd installment of the Inside Out Trilogy and the culmination of the love story that has been breaking us and putting us back together slowly, preparing us for what we finally see and didn’t necessarily expected from Chris & Sara. We got to see the many stages of the story, the mystery behind Rebecca’s disappearance, the mystery behind the Master and the realization that Rebecca’s disappearance was the act of a mad woman. Revealing Us gives us not only the thrill we expected but more than we could’ve asked for.

    What I loved about Revealing Us is how nicely the story flowed from Being Me. As Chris and Sara try to make the relationship work, other things keep playing out that could threaten their relationship. Chris’s past can either break them or bring them closer together. I think that one of the most interesting factors about this series is that the author compels the reader to associate situations with every day things and people. While many have perhaps experience the annoyance of an ex-girlfriend and the uncertainly their presence carries, the author manages to create an intricate yet strong and vulnerable relationship between Chris and Sarah, giving us the the opportunity to experience their emotions.

    I found both aspects of the story refreshing, Chris finality about bringing his demons out to the open and having Sara decide if she wants in, and Sara inability to use Chris’s past against him making her unable to turn her back on him. Her acceptance made her character stronger and more human in my eyes, while teaching the reader that one must not always use a person’s past to judge their present and of that their future.

    While I am not entirely ready to let this story go, I was also quite happy to see new characters being introduced, giving me the impression there is a lot more to come from these characters. Lisa Renee Jones has managed to create a compelling, engrossing and quite believable story of passion, murder, sex and love where characters have dark pasts that define and threatens their future but where passion, lust and sex is border line dangerous. These characters filled us with pride, anger, lust and love and that’s perhaps the intention of every story written, however not many authors can be as compelling and smart on their execution. I really loved this book and I am hopeful we get more, I am not ready to let it go just yet.

    Generally I love this whole series, aside from the whole BDSM, I want Chris for my very own. But Sara all of a sudden is turning out to be one of those ditzy girls from a B rated horror story, I won't spoil anything for those who have not read the book yet, but those who did know I'm referring to the end, I will say I'm disappointed in her wishy, washy attitude toward Amber, she goes from " I really don't like or trust this women," to " I must save her, " all in one day. Also I agree with the other persons review of Chris's secrets being anticlimactic.

    I just finished reading Revealing Us and overall I enjoyed the book, however there were a couple of times that I wanted to pull my hair out. I have said this in many reviews: I do not like the “he loves me/he loves me not” back and forth mess that seems to be the rage in all romance novels. I understand that life is messy and we all have insecurities when it comes to our relationships, but PLEASE put an end to the constant emotional see-saw that is so prevalent in these novels. I am becoming a big fan of Lisa Renee Jones and I loved the fact that there was an underlying mystery that is taking place in the story. Can we let most of the drama be about that and not “I want him, but I don’t know if we are going to make it.” These novels are supposed to be my escape from reality, I don’t want to feel like I am a part of couples counseling when I read it. That being said, this book is still pretty great despite all the non-mystery drama. We learn more about Chris’s dark past and who was involved in it. Sara finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation, becomes yet another crime victim and has stumbled on new information about her friend Ella. Of course there is plenty of hot sex and even more BDSM in this installment. This damaged couple hopefully has seen the last of their trust issues and I can’t wait to see what happens in book four.

    I think this was my favorite book in the series. In many ways, Chris’ vulnerability showed and I felt that he and Sara were finally able to lay it all bare, with nothing in their way.




    Sara had gotten to know Chris’ world, but coming to Paris shone a new light on his life before her, and past demons came back to haunt him over and over. This book was once again filled with a few twists and turns, and with a whole new cast of characters ready to threaten Chris and Sara’s happiness.




    This book was thrilling and I was hook from page one. This series has just gotten better and better with each book, and I really cannot wait to see what more lies in store for the characters who I’ve grown to love.
