    "Too much "wondering if we could be together""

    I was a little disappointed with the way the writer made Sara question whether her relationship with Chris would work out. I kept waiting for some "big" reveal about their pasts that would answer the question. Unfortunately the story line for that part of the book was severely lacking thus making it difficult to listen all the way until the end.

    "AND THE SAGA CONTINUES...."

    I can't help but feel that this series is going to be, at least a little, weighed down by the fact that it was changed from the original 3 books to 5 books. So, in that respect, in "Being Me" more developments are trickled down the pike. We are give two male competitors in Mark and Chris. Both men want Sara, but in different ways. Mark declares his intentions for Sara in this book and it's not in a "prince charming" kind of way. It's dark, seductive and perhaps tempting, but not enough to disrupt the steady romance and link between Chris and Sara. I was drawn to Mark in this book. I felt conflicted because I really want him to be saved as well. Sara is saving Chris and vise versa.....but Mark certainly needs to be saved by a desperate, healing kind of love.

    Now to Chris, there are so many things I really like about Chris: his tatts, his motorcycle, his charisma, and I also love that he is always in tune with Sara's feelings and moods--I mean, come on!!--For any man, that is a huge feat! With Sarah, Chris is tender, but fun. He is committed to only her (whereas Mark would definitely want to share her with others). I also love that he is generous with his charity events and immerses himself fully and personally when helping those less fortunate.

    Overall, I thought this book was well executed. The writing is very good. I LOVED how throughout the book, readers are not privy to a secret Sara is withholding, which she must eventually share with Chris. When it comes out, both the readers and Chris are learning about it for the first time. I thought this was clever because you can't judge Sara prematurely for the secret she withholds. Sometimes when female leads hold secrets, I get annoyed as it's so obvious that type of thing will pop up later in the plot and it just becomes so predictable. Not so, in this case.

    In this installment Rebecca's whereabouts are revealed, we see a more vulnerable side to Mark, there is a crazy encounter with Sara's ex-fiance, Chris deals with his own issues in a self-destructive way, more interesting artists weave themselves into this story,and the mystery surrounding Sara's friend builds up. Not sure when I'm going to read/listen to the following installments......maybe I'll wait for the 5th book to be released before I venture back into this saga.

    Narrator: Grace Grant is very good. She made this audiobook more enjoyable. Great job overall!

    "Just Great!"

    Just finished listening and it was a good as the first one, even better. Starting the third and I wish this could go on to a forth. OMG, what interesting characters. Grace Grant does an outstanding job with Narration. Maybe after the third book I'll get some sleep. Up at night listening just couldn't stop. I wanted to know what was happening next. You'll enjoy all of the books, believe me.

    "Little Better..."
    Would you try another book from Lisa Renee Jones and/or Grace Grant?

    Maybe.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa Renee Jones? Why or why not?

    Sex scenes are vanilla boring and uninteresting...the mystery plot stuff is better.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator was okay...


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Less sophomoric statements about general appearance and more evocative descriptors of emotion or internal physicality would make this better.

    "Male hotness". Really?

    "Killing ME!!! I Need Sleep!"

    Oh this book has so much drama, had to wait to write the reviews because I needed SLEEP!!! There is so much going on in this book even laying in bed with the sleep timer on I kept just resetting it and stayed up all night. ALL NIGHT! Not just one night, no because I couldn't get through all three books in one night and day...let's just say 2 nights!! YIKES Okay, so i totally got sucked in and I couldn't stop.

    This book didn't leave as bad a cliffhanger as the first which is good, since I think i had cardiac arrest the first time around, but definitely forces you to keep going.

    We do get the "big" answer in this book, but oh there is so much more now! I really liked this one!

    "Mystery 1 solved....sort of..."
    Where does Being Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Probably top 25, it was ok.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Being Me?

    Nothing memorable in this one but I bet # 3 will have a few.


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I love Grace Grant....my favorite female narrator. She is awesome in anything she narrates even the stories I don't particularly like!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, there are a lot of loose ends to tie up and of course the second big mystery. #1 was better to me, this was primarily the development of Chris and Sara's relationship.

    "Picks Up Where 1st Ended Can't Wait for 3rd-GREAT!"
    Where does Being Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoy the series...one of my favorite series.



    I arch into him, drinking in his passion, instantly, willingly consumed by all that he is and could be to me.

    Sara McMillan is still searching for Rebecca, the mysterious woman whose dark, erotic journal entries both enthralled and frightened her. Tormented by a strong desire to indulge the demands of her new boss while also drawn deeper into her passionate bond with the troubled artist Chris Merit, Sara must face a past as deeply haunting as Rebecca’s written words. In one man’s arms, Sara will find the safe haven to reveal her most intimate secrets and explore her darkest fantasies. But is safety just an illusion, when the truth about Rebecca has yet to be discovered?


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Chris and Sara...and the continued mystery of Rebecca and her disappearance-which is the catalyst to the series of wvents.


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Grace Grant's performances. If she narrates it, I own it! She is perfection.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I did listen to it within three days.


    Any additional comments?

    I was so frustrated after reading the 1st book - If I Were You - because I didn't know it was a series. It left a zillion unanswered questions and cliffhanger! This book answered some questions and raised some more intrigue. I have the third in the series downloaded and ready to go.

    My advice-if you are like me and cannot stand waiting between books. Wait until the entire series is released before listening - especially with such an intense set of books that are NOT stand alone. A similar series [not stand alone] is The Blackstone Affair Series.

    I recommend the Beautiful Series by Christina Lauren if you cannot wait for an entire series as these can stand alone (although it is fun to read them in order).

    NOTE: Strong language and sexual situations
