He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find intriguing but I do. I so do. I don't understand why his dark side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety promises of satisfaction....
In the best-selling style of Fifty Shades of Grey, Lisa Renee Jones delivers sexy thrills and heart-pounding sensuality with a tantalizing pause resistor in which the eyes of a high school English teacher are opened to a world she never knew existed, and she finds a passionate craving within that she never knew she possessed.
The journal comes to Sara McMillan by chance, when she inherits the key to an abandoned storage locker belonging to a woman named Rebecca. Sara can't resist peeking at the entries in the journal...and she finds a scintillating account of Rebecca' affair with an unnamed lover, a relationship drenched in ecstasy and wrapped in dark secrets.
Obsessed with discovering Rebecca' destiny after the entries come to an abrupt end, Sara does more than observe the players in the woman's life; she immerses herself in the high-stakes art gallery world Rebecca inhabited - and is magnetically drawn to two men. Which one seduced Rebecca with his masterful and commanding touch and brought her fantasies to exquisite life? On a daringly erotic escapade, Sara follows Rebecca's path to fulfill her own hidden longings. But after she tastes the forbidden pleasures Rebecca savored, will Sara be helpless to escape the same submissive fate?
Next in this thrilling new trilogy: look for Being Me and Revealing Us.

I purchased this book because it seemed intriguing and different, and I was spot on! Overall it was like a comedic erotic romance mystery--it had a little bit of everything to offer which made the characters very interesting. The storyline had its moments where it ebbed and flowed somewhat, with abrupt emotional highs and lows from the main characters; but the biggest deal was the unexpected ending. It really made me think, what the heck is REALLY going on????...great way to get you to buy book 2!
As usual, Grace Grant is excellent as the narrator, although I couldn't get the 'Beautifuls' series characters out of my head as I listened. I'd recommend it to a friend, but I don't think it's worth a credit, definitely a sale type of purchase. With that wacky ending and seriously unresolved issues with a number of characters, I'm ready to get to book 2 to see what happens.
Say something about yourself!
The mystery and snoop factor
Funny coworker excerpts...
Okay for material
Wondered how this sad sack was remotely attractive to these douchey playboy types.
Good premise, mediocre execution. Character building needs serious work.
Will do anything for books!
First of all, I need to say by the description I was worried that there would be a lot of back and forth relationship wise, between two different men and confusion, which honestly makes me crazy! That was not the case, her affections were quickly and pretty much irrevocably set. That said, there were TONS of ups and downs,
The book is rather well written, not noticeable word choice or grammar errors.
At this point, I've finished the third book, so some of this runs together as far as where books end and begin, but over all, the series was good, captivating and interesting. This is a far fetched story, not anyone's "real life." For me that isn't a negative, but good to know before you invest in a series.
As far as the hotness factor...YES! This does have drama and suspense but also is rather warm and tingly!
I would recommend, worth the credit.
I can't believe the ending............I became really into the book and then the ending ruined the whole experience. So disappointing and it left me annoyed, I felt like I had wasted my time. I even checked my library to be sure there was not another section that I had missed.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Yes...not only is it steamy and sexy, it has some mystery involved, it's nice to have a storyline other than sex in erotica! But the sex is fabulous......
It has some Fifty, Crossfire and your other sexy billionaire trilogies similarities with the bdsm theme and dark histories.
Soul, emotion, passion.....she is my favorite female narrator right now...she is awesome!
Yes...but I did have to sleep and work, but it only took me a couple days to finish, it was very difficult to put away!
Be prepared for a cliff hanger like no other.
Would you listen to If I Were You again? Why?
If there was a large gap between reading the novels I might. This is already my second time reading this story.
What did you like best about this story?
I like the tension between Sarah and Chris. They both are really into each other but they have so many walls up around themselves they struggle to get close.
What about Grace Grant’s performance did you like?
I really enjoy listening to Grace Grant. She has narrated the majority of the last few books I have listened to. I would definitely listen to her again.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book keeps you on edge, almost constantly. You have no clue what happened to Rebecca, you don't know if Sarah is in danger or just paranoid.
A better plot.
None of them. I didn't like any of them.
This book is the most boring thing I've ever listened to. It started off interesting, I was intrigued to find out what happened to the woman in the journals and see where the journey took Sara. After about the first or second chapter, things really tapered off. NOTHING was happening. I gave it a few more chapters before I stopped listening altogether. I don't care what happens to any of the characters, it's just not interesting at all. I really thought I'd enjoy this book, it had all the makings of a good one, but it really fell flat.
The narrator was fine, she did a decent enough job with what she had. She isn't the best narrator I've ever heard, but adequate. She has a nice tone and makes an attempt to distinguish character voices. I'd probably listen to something performed by her again.
Yes I would listen to it again.
Chris is so yummy!
She brings more emotions to the story.
I smiled a lot because she is a strong women and didn't put up with much crap.
I absolutely love these books!!!! Definitely worth the money or credit!!!!!!
It grabbed me from the beginning and held me all the way to the end.
Books books books
The narrator was pleasant to listen too. When I started the book I didn't think I'd like it, I found myself getting into to it after a while. It's not exactly an original story line but it gets the job done.
