Glad to have found audible. I listen all day long while I work in my glass studio. Melting glass on a blowtorch is visual and the books allow me extra stimulation while I am working.
I would have appreciated an ending not just a sudden stop! It ends like a traffic accident! Crash and then......?????? what?????
I don't mind a book ending in suspense but no questions are answered! You are left with a mystery and no real clues. You just need to wait for the next book. I expected to read a book and not be left frustrated and pressured to purchase the next one......

I was immediately intrigued by the storyline; Sara finds Rebecca's personal journals in an abandoned storage unit, and wonders what happened to her. Sara, a teacher with an art degree, goes to the art gallery where Rebecca worked, gets hired for the summer, and gets involved with Chris, an temperamental artist. Then the story becomes all about Chris, his emotional baggage, and her various problems (traumatic childhood, low self-esteem, no self respect). Once again, no one ever deals with abuse and neglect by counseling & therapy. No, Rebecca need others to validate her worth and Chris needs to dominate women and endure physical pain (in a BDSM club).
This book ends mid drama, which would have been acceptable if the 2nd book had been better. However, I am almost done the next book in the series (a solid 20 hours of listening) in which Sara is still immature & easily manipulated and Chris is a jerk more often than a prince. While there are some good parts and I really am curious what happened to Rebecca, I don't enjoy characters in their late 20s or 30s that act as if they are still in high school.
Ms. Jones and Ms. Grant, wow! This one got me from the beginning and kept the interest going. There is a cliffhanger at the end but not to worry the follow up book is here. So, glad Audible kept the same Narrator. You have to listen to this one. It's so worth the money or Credit. I'm on the last of the three books now and I don't want it to end. Great job Audible in bringing us another great book. Thanks.
So let me start out with that, I was not sure what I was getting when I picked this latest read from my TBR list. What a great discovery this was, Inside Out Trilogy has become of one of the most Erotic Mystery HOTTNESS reads for me. If I were you was a great start to this trilogy what started out as some personal erotic journals lost in a storage unit that Sara inherited, that eventually turns into to so much more. Started out I truly thought the main hero would be Mark Compton the Sexy art gallery owner and controlling boss man and I was inwardly hoping for it not to be because something just was not right about Sara and Mark’s connection. What I thought would be mixed love triangle truly wasn’t and oh was I so happy and head over heels for Chris Merit the hotty, dark, rich painter who in return is our Hero in this mystery read. I will not give too much away, but I will tell you this I was so happy that I had the second installment Being Me on hand because the cliffhanger in this one was truly torture. This was an Amazing read I was glad that I picked this for my next read.
Sara and Chris steam up the pages of this book but you also get mystery and suspense. I agree with other readers that it leaves you hanging and so I am glad I waited for the 2nd book to be released before beginning. This has been on my shelf to read for a while and I am not sure why I waited but am so glad that I have read it. I liked the steamy scenes in this book. The BDSM is not overboard and it is believable. I liked the tension between Sara, Chris and Mark. It keeps you guessing how they will all interconnect. Each character is full of pain and mystery and you never know how it is going to play out. At first I was not sure if I would like the Sara reading about someone else's experiences but it was just the right amount. There are several different plot twists that could lead off to other books and characters such as Mark and Steven or Ava. Grace Grant rocks it out of the park with narration. I really like her but again will comment on the fact that she sometimes sounds like she has a lot of saliva when speaking. After the first 5 min I totally get engrossed in her narration and forget all about it. I will highly recommend this book and cannot wait to start on book 2.
Probably the best I have read since Fifty Shades! I absolutely love this one so YES it is most definitely worth it!
i live in the kentucky bluegrass and enjoy coffee in the morning while listening to a great book.
i follow leesa here on audible and typically, without fail, i always love what she recommends to the rest of us. thankfully, her reviews aren't too wordy so i can get through it and know pretty quickly if she loved it or decided it wasn't a book for her.
i was not going to listen to this book. i saw it on e-reader and i dunno, it just didn't do it for me when i read the synopsis. so i passed on reading it, old-style.
then i saw leesa's review. sigh. she loved it. i knew i better get it because dang it, i knew i'd love it too.
.....and of course i did! it's filled with angst, drama, great sex scenes and there's this churning in the background of the book where you know there's stuff going on that you're going to find out. and not like. but you must know. because the skeletons must come out of their closets.
i loved it. all of it.
i moved on to book two immediately, and then after i was finished i went right back and am now on book one again...i loved it that much. also, i wanted to go back and listen to the little juicy bits i missed on the first go-round because i was so anxious to get through it! sigh. what? you know you do it too. :)
so definitely give this a try. grace grant does a SUPERB job---as always, and draws you right into the story... just like a great narrator should.
Grace Grant ( in my opinion) is THE BEST NARRATOR ever!!! I love all of her voices..
This book is well worth the credit or to just buy... Its alittle like 50 shades but I like this book alot better... Because of the Narrator ( of course) and also its not as intense... The ending is kinda sudden but definatly leaves you wanting more.. Really good sex, and really good story.. Cant wait for the next one to see what happens..
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Running out this type Audible-so on2 lighter romance/mystery :-(
No, not unless there's a follow up
The end...there is NO closure on any of the main topics or minor ones. Very frustrating!
Yes and no....yes if there's a follow up. No if there isn't!
Crazy for audiobooks!!
Looks like we'll have to wait until June, when Ms. Jones next book, Being Me is released. I'm just hoping it'll pick up from the storage unit where it left off.
This books story line flows comfortably, easy to follow and keeps your interest. It's one of those who dunits that keeps you wanting to know more.
Well worth the credit.
