To start, let me say I enjoyed the first two books. This one however was not even close to being as good. The author turned the main character, Sarah into a whinny, second guessing, wishy washy little annoying fool. I couldn't even bring my self to finnish it, I tried really hard but My eyes were getting sore from rolling them so much. Now I know every one who read the first two books feel obligated to read the last but don't say I didn't warn you.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but Revealing Us was not quite as engrossing. I almost always give Grace Grant 5 stars, but this time she wasn't on her game. She didn't differentiate the male/female voices very well; her French accent was way off; and at times, it was hard to distinguish between actual conversation between people and the internal musings of a character's mind. All her other narrations have been stellar, and this one mediocre performance won't prevent me from listening to more Grace Grant narrations.
As for the story, it dragged out the angst beyond the pale. It really got old in this installment of the series. And let's give Sara the "here's your sign" award for her stupid decision to rescue Amber in the closing segment of the book. Am I the only one who was screaming at my iPod at that point??
At this point, I don't know if I will listen to further installments of this series (the author has indicated that books 4 and 5 are forthcoming). I haven't worked up enough interest in Ella to care about her HEA, although the book about the trial has me a bit intrigued.
First, I think Grace Grant is a wonderful narrator...After the first book I was really really angry by the way it ended.. Having to wait for book two was frustrating. However in my opinion book two was the best. After waiting for months for book three once it came out I re-listened to book one and two again then listened to book three I have to agree with the person who's subject line was disappointing. After all the build up in three books to find out Chris's secret was a real let down. Even Sarah's was a let down in book two was no big deal. I am very disappointed I wasted 2 credited on this series and will not do so again. I'm also tired of all the men that are rich gorgeous dysfunctional sex gods who prey on plain women with low self esteem who can't believe anyone would want them. Because the men are SO above them even the other women in the book are like models. Come on, come up with something better. As for Lisa Renee Jones I'll never purchase another book by her again.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I don't know whether it's the characters, the storyline or the great narration, or a combination of all three, but this talented and very gifted Author has captured my imagination and thrown me into a world where tension, suspense, danger, mysteries, secrets, lies, sex that's developing into a bit of BDSM play, passion, jealousy and a desperate romance has consumed my life for days now. And, as the clues mount regarding Ella's disappearance, this has brought in more characters.... and in particular one very unsavoury Billionaire.
Worth a credit? It's all been said before and I'm desperate to start the next book before so I'll just say what an emotional and dramafest of a ride this has been so far.... and YAYE it's not over yet. With a gorgeous, hot, sexy, tattooed, possessive, alpha Artist with a very kind heart.... it's sooooo creditworthy
This has to be one of the best book series I have read. It will keep you in suspense. The character Sara is fantastic. Plus the Story of Sara, Chris and Rebecca's story is great. I cried my eyes out. Love, lust and suspense is what this series is all about. You wont be able to put these books down. OMG The end of book is the best!!!!

I do like this series. however I felt like Chris and Sarah were having the same fight over and over. I was looking for more to the plot. More whodunit I guess. overall it's a good series and I'll continue to read rather than listen to the remaining books.
I love this series. I'm not sure about the cliffhanger thing. I'm slowly getting used to them though. Characters are engaging. Both have troubles and secrets that threaten their relationship. Apart from the sex, there is a lot going on in the story. Always a question to be answered. Can't wait to see how this develops into TV.
I dream about you wide awake in my arms It’s the last time I sleep alone dreaming of you in my arms I’ll kiss you every day & every night
Good character development, interesting writing. I’m very pleased, but very curious too even though I didn't like where the story went.
Sara and Chris story gets further development but I don’t see Sara trusting issues get any better. He left her once… She thinks she’s getting through, all is new in Paris! Sounds good, it can’t get worst can it? Chris wants her in his life and loves her.
First there’s the language barrier, then some mysterious events like passport stealing, hold it for murder investigation, missing people, stalking and manipulating…
Meeting Chris friends from the past it’s another story, makes Sara stupid all over again and when that happens, Chris like a hero he is, starts talking about his issues to assure her… Now you tell her Chris? You leave her to the wolves. That’s not the better way to do it…
I felt they are not a trusting couple yet. Chris wants Sara to believe he is a big mystery to be sorry for and he only acts when it’s almost too late. Annoying!
Chris’s BIG dark secret, well was that a big one? While he kept staling for weeks for talking about it, finally and knowing it, it’s not that big of deal, we deal with problems even worst every day… The guilt stays with us, we have to fight it if we can and live with it. Was that making Sara give up on him? Was he that worried?
What about Mark? I need more Mark… What’s going on?
Did Ava really kill Rebecca? Is Rebecca dead? Please don’t be.
The journals are useful or not? And what the hell is Ella doing?
Revealing us did reveal we are not sure of anything.
On to the next one! I need to know!
"The Big Reveal!!"
The book starts right after Eva's attack on Sara and the huge decision whether to go to Paris or not. There is not as much credible story line or action as with the first two books and you are left in Sara's angst riddled brain for the majority of the book, the section on her difficulties with French cuisine and the language had me gritting my teeth. That and her penchant for running into trouble, while a scowling Chris comes to her rescue, this happens several times and Sara seems to have gone from an assertive women in search of the truth to having no backbone and whining while making ludicrous assumptions because she is so insecure.
Do not get me wrong Lisa Renee Jones knows how to write, there was just too much overly labored feelings of Chris's tortured soul, this huge massive secret that was flogged and alluded to all the way through the book, to the point that when it was revealed I didn't much care either way.
. Anyway the book felt like a springboard for the the next book something to fill a flagging space. Not for me this time.
I just want to say that although I did not enjoy the direction this third installment went in, Grace Grant narrates wonderfully..
It didn't disappoint one bit. I never got bored, never dragging the story. Great narrator. An amazing follow up to the series.
