In this dark and sensual e-novella, which ties into Lisa Renee Jones’s bestselling Inside Out series, Chris’s dark point of view comes to light as he tries to win—then hold onto—Sara’s heart.
In a world where my only escape has been my art, Sara has been the light in my darkness. And there is darkness, the kind of inky black that can bleed from my life into hers.
She doesn’t see it. She doesn’t understand what I’ve shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon…she will.
First off a big thank you to NetGalley for approving us the chance to read and review this story.
Before I begin my actual review I have to say that I was attracted to this story first by the cover and title… That being said… I liked this short novella, though I wish I’d read the books that it stems from first. Though the story is very thorough and really fun to read, I did feel a little bit lost on what was going on… No ones fault but my own.
To read on how much Chris’s past and secrets torment him and cause him to fear that he will lose Sara is so sad. To see how some of the things that he’s been through have had lasting affects not only on him but others as well and that he beats himself up for those things. Also the fact that he is afraid that Sara’s life will head in that same direction is heart wrenching.
Sara is such a strong character and in my opinion so good for him. She shows him that no matter what he says or does she will always love him. That she is there for him and will help him get past all the hurt and darkness.
As I said I wish I would have read the books that accompanies this novella beforehand, because I think it would’ve helped me not only understand the plot a bit better but endeared me the characters even more. So I hope you not only enjoy this novella, but the rest of Lisa Renee Jones’ series.
