When Sara McMillan finds a stack of journals in a storage unit, she’s shocked and enthralled by the erotic life the writer led. Unable to stop reading, she vicariously lives out dark fantasies through Rebecca, the writer—until the terrifying final entry.

Certain something sinister has happened, Sara sets out to discover the facts, immersing herself in Rebecca’s life. Soon she’s working at the art gallery Rebecca worked at and meeting Rebecca’s friends. Finding herself drawn to two dangerously sexy men, the manager of the gallery and a famed artist, Sara realizes she’s going down the same path Rebecca took. But with the promise of her dark needs being met by a man with confident good looks and a desire for control, she’s not sure anything else matters. Just the burn for more.

My Thoughts:

This is the first time I’ve read anything by Lisa Renee Jones. I’ve heard her books were good but with a TBR pile being a mile long, I never got around to reading her before. I can say that I am now a big fan.

To describe the writing style of this book, it is like Fifty Shades. Everything I read has her being compared to the famed books left and right. Well considering I couldn’t get past the 6% mark on my Kindle while reading Fifty (for those who love this series, to each her own), I was not sure about If I Were You. Straight off, the writing is so much better and I could actually stand reading it! Lol! Now I will say that there were times I wanted to shake the crap out of Sara more than once because I felt she was a little on the na├»ve side, but I could look past that to the plot. I find myself trying like hell to figure out what happened to Rebecca myself.

This is a difficult review to write. There is just so much that goes on that is so important to the book that pretty much anything will come across as a spoiler. So let’s see…I can tell you that I think I am in love with the artist Chris Merit in this book. Lol. Of course I’m there are times where I think he is all sorts of a grade A a-hole but then he will turn around and redeem himself. And Mark, the gallery manager, I’m still not sure what to think of him. He does entice the crap out of me though. I can’t wait to read more about him in Being Me. I think there might be more to him than meets the eye.

The best/worse part of the book…the ending. It leaves you with your heart pumping and then it’s all like boom! You have to read the next one to find out what happens. Lol. I was all into what was going in and it should have occurred to me that I didn’t have any other pages to read. Thankfully sitting on my bookshelf was Being Me so I didn’t have to wait to read it.

I definitely recommend this book and series. It will keep you flipping those pages as fast as you can. I know it did for me!

And boy was it steamy!!
