Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day since reclaiming her life and holding on to her hard-won lessons. While that doesn’t include romance, it doesn’t mean she has to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark, and Tattooed…
Security professional Andrew Copeland is no stranger to women, but the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to Ella is different from anything he’s known before. Determined to help her—and to get close—he offers her hands-on training in self-defense.
The prospect of being able to touch him and regain her sense of security is more than Ella can resist.  Soon Cope reignites something deep inside her—something that could turn them both inside out.

About the Author

As a stay-at-home mom, Lauren Dane had lots of conversations in a singsong voice but had no real outlet for adult thoughts and words. Armed with a secondhand laptop, she decided to “give that writing thing a serious go.”
Nearly a decade and several dozen books later, she’s well aware of her good fortune and is loving every moment of it, even when she has to edit and intervene when her children bicker about video games or manga.

Ella Tipton still struggles with mental healing after her last relationship with an abuser almost left her dead. Tattooed Andrew "Cope" Copeland and Ella have been friends for years, but though she has had dreams starring him he never showed any romantic interest in her. Cope offers her self-defense training so she can have a chance to defend herself if ever caught in the same ugly scenario that almost killed her. She accepts. However, their touching as part of the lessons has both struggling with desire. Yet when Cope asks her to go out on a date, she is stunned, but accepts. While they fall in love, Ella fears her reactions are one sided as she distrusts herself to know otherwise having picked a psychopath previously. As for Cope, he struggles to cope with his feelings as he is used to playing the field. This is a terrific contemporary romance with two strong protagonists whose relationship changes from friend to friend and lover. Ella and Cope know they must Laid Bare their hearts as well as they do their body parts, but each fears an intimate loving relationship. Lauren Dane provides her audience with a deep heartfelt relationship drama as the heroine remains somewhat traumatized and the hero is the deer in the headlights. Harriet Klausner

I'm a lover of all things romance. I'm also a lover of all things Lauren Dane. Why do I love Lauren Dane? Because she's wicked smart and her intelligence shines through in every book. Dane's latest book, INSIDE OUT released yesterday. I read it. Ok. DEVOURED it. Wow. SO EVERYTHING! You MUST buy this book. You'll be glad you did! From the Back Cover: WORTH THE WAIT Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she's spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she's needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard won lessons. There hasn't been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn't mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark and Tattooed himself. Security professional Andrew Copeland isn't quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He's known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she'd been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to her is different than any attraction he's had in the past. Determined to get Ella to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense. While Ella's sure he's just being nice, the prospect of being able to touch him and gain the tools to push away the last vestiges of her fear is more than she can resist. Soon enough, Cope shows Ella his feelings are far more than friendly and re-ignites something deep inside her. Before long desire and love turn them both inside out. I loved this book. I love Ella's strength. I love Cope's vulnerability. I love the way Dane built their relationship. This isn't a case of love at first sight but a love built over time. I have adored every book in this series. While you can read INSIDE OUT as a stand alone, you'd be crazy to not buy the other books in this series. C.R.A.Z.Y. I tell ya! The characters from COMING UNDONE and LAID BARE feature prominently in INSIDE OUT. I love that. I love seeing my favorite characters living THEIR happily ever afters!

This is the 3rd book of the Brown Siblings Series. I read the first and second books which I absolutely loved, and this book about the relationship between "HOT" Andrew "Cope" Copeland and Ella Tipton did not disappoint. Cope and Ella had known each other for years, but Ella was recovering both physically and emotionally from a very abusive relationship. They had so many trials and tribulations to get through before they were ready for the other and he gave her the time and space she needed to find her way back to the person she once was. Once their relationship began, it slowly built to a beautiful erotic love story. You just can't help but fall in love with these two and the sex is amazing. There were times I laughed and times I found to be very emotional. I like the way Lauren Dane brings characters from the first two books into this one which updates you on the other relationships. I will definitely read Adrians story.

I absolutely loved Cope and Ella's story. How wonderful was it for two people who have loved each other for so long to finally come together,but who had so many trials and tribulations to get through before they were each ready for the other? Although, there was a little too much focus on Erin and her pregnancy, the story was still primarily about Cope and Ella being able to finally love each other openly and freely, with no bounds. My HOT IS COPE??!! WHOA!!!

I'm a huge fan of this series. Laid Bare is probably my all-time favorite erotic novel. I went into Inside Out thinking it was going to be an erotic read, but for me, it wasn't. It was a love story. It was a story about family and making choices. I loved it! Ella Tipton is the manager of the coffee shop/cafe owned by Erin Brown in Laid Bare. She was in an abusive relationship and was almost killed by her ex. She's slowly recovering and learning how to live a full life on her own terms again, but she has lifelong scars - both mental and physical. In addition to managing the cafe, she's also finishing up her Master's degree in Social Work and working a job related to that. Andrew "Cope" Copeland is a "bad boy" who's got a playboy reputation when it comes to the ladies. He's had a crush on Ella for a long time, but first she was in a relationship, then she was attacked and needed to recover, so the time never seemed right for him to make a move. Until now. Ella and Cope's story sizzled. The heat was there, just below the surface, slowly boiling toward a super hot eruption. I loved that they were already friends and turned it into something so much more - more special, more sexy, more emotionally raw. They both had issues - besides Ella's issues related to her attack by her ex-boyfriend, Cope brought some baggage into the relationship as well - as the second son, he spent most of his life trying to live up to his father's image of his older brother Ben. Cope and Ben's father is having a hard time coming to terms with Ben's relationship (a threesome), and Cope has been trying to patch things up between his father and Ben, but it's not working. I have only two small complaints: I got tired about reading about Erin's pregnancy. I understand everyone was worried about her and it was a huge part of the storyline, but it was frustrating as a reader to read what felt like the same thing over and over. Also, the heroines of the three books in this series to date all have names that start with E - Erin, Elise, and Ella. I've mentioned before that I get confused when the names are similar. All three heroines have intertwining storylines in the book; I was able to keep everyone straight but sometimes had to re-read a line or paragraph and double-check to make sure I had was picturing the right people in my head. Inside Out is emotionally exhausting - but in a good way. I was so vested in the characters lives that I took their triumphs and tragedies to heart myself. It was a wonderful read and I'm so glad that in addition to Ella and Cope we also got to see how all the other siblings and friends are doing. I'm now anxiously awaiting Adrian's book - Never Enough - coming in September 2011. (I'm so glad his love interest isn't Raven!)

Lauren Dane is awesome! The romance was great, and it was steamy. Love it! I can't wait to read Lauren's other books in this series.

A beautiful masterpiece. Every word was a gift. The chills are still on my arms from loving this book so much. Inside Out is the third book in the Brown Sibling series. I do believe it can stand alone with ease. That being said, I am glad that I could experience this book as the treasure it is to those following this extended family. Ella Tipton was introduced in book one as Erin Brown's friend and employee at Erin's café. Ella was nearly beaten to death by her abusive ex-boy friend and over the last two books, Ella has faced demons large and small to regain her independence and self confidence. Andrew Copeland, Erin's brother in-law, has been waiting. Waiting for the time when he and Ella could have their try at love. He is a gorgeous man with no lack for female companionship, but none of them has been the one he really wants. Ella is the one with his heart. Now, it is finally time. Time for these two to dive in and either sink or swim. Although Ella and Cope are the focal point of this story, all of the previous major characters' stories are advanced. Erin is at the end of her pregnancy and her health is at risk. One of her husbands, Ben, still has significant issues with his father over his lifestyle choice. Erin's brother Brody is getting married to Elise. And her rock star brother, Adrian, dreams of being with his family rather than the road. So, it's not just the story of Andy and Ella. It's the story of a family. The first half of this story I wept. It was such a romantic story, it read like a love letter. I just cried and cried for Ella as she was swept off her feet by Cope. I blushed and grinned during all the lusty sex-filled scenes. And then the tension came. More than once I wanted to chuck my kindle at the wall because of frustrating choices. The tension got so thick I am sure the fingernail imprints in my leather cover are now permanent. Ms. Dane wrote such a multi-dimensional world that I fell right into the story and felt each joy, each stomach clench, each shiver, each sigh. I love when an author can do that. I love to be unable to put my kindle down. Inside Out is a fast-paced story of love, family and friends who are all survivors in one way or another. Their love shines off the page and permeates every moment. Enjoy!

I love the series of books by Lauren Dane. This is my favorite so far. I love the characters of this book, Ella Tipton, and Andrew "cope" Copeland. They are so enduring. Ella overcoming an abusive relationship and Andrew also overcoming misjudgements of other people. These characters make you want to root for them from start to finish. I really love this book. I think I will remember Inside Out, Ella, and Andrew for a long time to come. I can't wait to read Andrian's story.

Sometimes you make the wrong choice and you can become "damaged" but it's up to you to stay that way. You can fight and put it all behind you. But you still have to open yourself up to love when the one comes along. Just like Ella's did when Cope, Andy, Andrew decided it was time to love her!

This series of books i love but this book just felt boring...yes it was sweet but i felt it draged and there really was no point in the book that i just had to finish...i skimmed most of the book just to get to the end. Not to mention there was no build up to want to rwad this book. It was just thrown on us. Not worth the $$ for this book.

This is the third Brown series book I've read and it is the worst by far. 206 pages for $13 is so wrong. I felt the main characters lacked depth and it seemed to be just a "catch up" book with the rest of the family instead of a stand alone story. I doubt that I'll read any more.
