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?

Thank Goodness Being Me picks right up where If I were you picks up. Sara’s insecurities and secrets are revealed; we get a peak at what some of Chris’s secrets are but not the BIG dark secret that lingers on that fine line and just when you think oh ok that’s his dark secrets you soon discover ok that not it. But what is evident Sara loves Chris and Chris loves Sara, they are both head over heels for each other, but can’t quite get it right! You get to see just how big Chris’s heart is even though he has his demons and secrets he want to live and be happy and Sara is the one that can help guide them to where they need to be.
“I've always known we were two puzzle pieces that fit together in a hollow that is our pain. There was a time when I was certain we were too damaged not to destroy each other. Now I think we are saving each other.”
I also see Mark in such a different light to me that he no longer creeps me out. I honestly feel sorry for him and began to believe he means well; he just has his demons and needs that special one to come along and guide him to pure happiness.
Although Being Me still leaves me with so many more questions and yes another cliffhanger, but it no were near as bad as the one in Inside out. I so need Revealing Us NOW, but I have to wait until September.
The narrator was very good.
Chris is still my favorite in this series.
This is the only series that I have listened to with Grace Grant.
YES! YES! YES!!! I think this series is amazing!! And really like Grace Grant's narrating.
FSOG series Sylvia Day's Crossfire series. This series has grabbed ahold of me just like those did, and I CAN'T quit listening until they are done!!!!!!
I'm in love with Chris Merit!!!! Just wish he had dark hair!!!.....He does in my mind! ;o)
Books books books
Love Chris even though he's crazy
Definitely on pins and needles waiting on the third book.
I loved this book. I could not wait to download it and I knew there was a cliff hanger after reading the reviews of the first book so I waited to get started and glad I did because it would have drove me crazy. Lisa Renee Jones really knows how to keep you guessing. Although you have suspicions of how things are moving forward there are enough plot twists to keep it interesting. There is talk that there was too much filler but I did not get that feeling. I do think that there are some characters that could have their own books like Mark and Ella. Sara and Chris' characters get even more depth and still there is mystery there. I like the fact that your imagination can still run in several different directions as to what Chris' dark secrets are. I wish she would have a bit more of a clash between Sara, Chris and Sara's ex fiance. Again she leaves you with a cliff hanger and who knows where she will take us next. There are still several unanswered questions but that just leaves you wanting more. Cannot wait for Sept. Very, Very worth the credit.
I love audio books that the characters come to life and have me feeling as if I was there too.
Oh this was a great wait and a great addition to these series. Worth the credit or the money for this book. Everything about this series is right. The drama was there the the pow pows was good and I couldn't stop listening till it ended.Trust me and buy this book cause ai didn't see the end coming, My more one thing is that I want to say is to Audibles to get Rebecca's Journal on here so I can buy them and enjoy. :D. I cant wait for book 3. Happy Listening!
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
sometimes i like to read, and other days, I listen.. either way, a good book.
Again it's Chris, with all his faults, flaws, and hurt he still is the my hero in this book.
I have listened to a lot of Grace Grant's performances.. and you know. she is really starting to be a favorite of mine.
YES, i did, at the end I jumped up and screamed WHY and WHAT..cause I really thought this was the end of this series and so much was unsaid. It's not as bad as the first book, but it's enough to make me want that last book..
This keep book took me in so many directions.. in a good way. NOW THIS WAS EXCELLENTLY written. Everything (nearly) is revealed to you from the first book.. I fear that the two most important people in this book are misguided and can't seem to find a way to one another and that is upsetting when they so love one another.. Some of this was predicable. And you knew what was coming, but I can assure you, there is enough going on that you will read and re-read just to make sure you understood that right. I loveD it. it's worth a credit, or a buy and to know there is one more excites me to no end. And a TV show to boot.. Anyone that has read this series, will be excited to hear this.. I read a lot of reviews before choosing this.. in fact I almost didn't go with this, but now. I am so happy I did.. I am a sucker for romance, and yes of course the sex is important, but I like a good book that don't put me to sleep and few of these so called good ones did.. But this one. NOPE, your in it.
To make the most of 'Being Me' you really need to read 'If I Were You' first - and even further on from that it is worth reading 'Rebecca's Diaries' before you read 'Being Me' . Rebecca's Diaries aren't available as an audiobook but I found them on Amazon kindle.
Now for the review. Being Me follows on directly from If I Were You. It delves more deeply into the lives of Sara and Chris and how their past will ultimately effect their future. Many of the questions raised in 'If I Were You' are answered in this book.
We find out who Master is though I guess we all had him pegged from book 1. We also find out what happened to Rebecca and as others have remarked - I didn't see that one coming either.
These books are very much like FSOG in that there is a strong BDSM element, a millionaire with a tortured soul, a beautiful young woman and a love story- but that is were the similarity ends. These books have suspense, intrigue and characters that have been developed by strong storylines.
I really enjoyed listening to this book though there is no way I could do it in one sitting - some of it was a bit too dark for me - but as I said it was a great book and I am looking forward to the third book in September.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, a MUST READ OR LISTEN!
I LOVE THE STORY LINE
I HOPE THEY WILL MAKE A MOVIE, CAN'T WAIT FOR THE 3RD BOOK, THERE MUST BE ONE COMING???
This book grabs you and you can't put it down.
When they realise that they love each other.
She has the perfect voice for these kinds of books, and she seems to only pick great books to narrate!
More more more!!!
Bring on the next one, I need to know what happens!
