Publisher's Summary

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?

Book 2 is better than Book 1 Best Erotic Series!

What made the experience of listening to Being Me the most enjoyable?

The dialogue and plot engrosses you from the beginning.

What did you like best about this story?

I never knew when the next twist would come or how story-lines would be completed.

What does Grace Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Terrific voice characterizations through her performance. She made it easy to picture the people, places and activities with in the book.

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

Toward the end when Mark realizes that it is he that directed some innocent members into situations with dire consequences. That he was a monster.

Any additional comments?

Lisa Renee Jones maybe the best writer in Erotic Romance genre. She is a great story teller, with rich characters and nice complicated plots.

Well....we learned more...I guess

I am still liking this series.....BUT....there seemed to be an overwhelming amount of space filler in this book. Over and over again with lines like "But I'm not ready to tell him my secret"...."This could expose my secret"......"it was on the tip of my tongue to tell him my secret".....ARGHHHH and then the secret...not such a secret! So I say GRRRR!!!!

Many, many lines said repeatedly throughout the book. We did get some closure on some open ended items though, so THAT I really liked. This book seemed to be a conclusion for book one...that story is done...but the story of Sara and Chris and where they are going is book 3....come on September!!!!

RIVETING...THE PLOT DEEPENS &THE DRAMA CONTINUES

I'm totally lost in this series because, beneath all the mystery, the drama, the suspense, the twists and the steamy sex scenes, there's a beautiful romance between Chris and Sara and they're doing the best they can to hold on to each other despite all the turmoil and danger that surrounds them. It answered some questions but then threw in some curve-balls and there's a dramatic leap of faith that has to be made before any more secrets can be revealed.

Totally addictive story, great characters and a plot that drew me into a world that I'm not yet ready to leave - and the good news is that I don't yet have to because the angst and bitter-sweet romance is set to continue but this time in Paris. And that's where Chris is planning to bare his soul and shed his secrets and where he hopes Sara will stand by him no matter what she hears. The sub plot of Ella going missing is taking a toll on the frayed nerves of Sara as time goes by and the suspicions and worry mounts. We're still getting glimpses of Rebecca's Journals, the story's told from Sara's POV and the narration was the cherry on top of a very juicy cake.

Worth a credit? This is definitely going to be an auto download author for me because the descriptions took me there, all drama in the character's lives held me captive and everyone's future is yet to be heard. I've downloaded all the books in this series so YES they have been creditworthy and I have every faith that they will continue to be worth it.

Love Love Love

This book kept me on the edge of my seat, flowed well without sections that were drawn out, gave some good answers to the questions book 1 left and left me excited for book 3.

I would definitely recommend this series to my friends.

book two is SO good!

you already know that book one was SO good and now you want to know if the second book was just as great? well. it is.

and then some.

the characters have such depth and the love is there, albeit strained. they're trying to figure out who they are and how they can overcome past tragedies. i wanted to savor EVERY word but also, i desperately wanted them to be "okay" and didn't stop listening until this book was over. it's so good.

there's two more in the series. it's going to be a long wait. sigh.

i loved this story and grace does an outstanding job as always.

thanks to leesa for the recommendation, otherwise i'm pretty sure i would have passed this one up and that would have been a shame.

Needed more mature characters

As the 2nd book in a series about an art gallery where most of the characters are in their late 20s and 30s, possibly older, the emotional drama and issues are just too juvenile. I expected some kind of conclusion to the original question "What happened to Rebecca?" but there was just endless romantic, business & family drama. There wasn't one character that acted educated and professional, let alone like a rational adult. Exhausting and unfulfilling!

Didn’t hold my interest

I don’t know what didn’t work for me. One problem may be that I haven’t read any of the preceding books in this series. I didn’t feel lost, but I was keenly aware that more had occurred before the start of this book. This feeling lessened as the book went along. Also, I’m tired of the stories based on a relationship between a very wealthy, broken, DOM, male and a younger & much more naïve, broken, female who is not wealthy now or any longer. Is the world so small now that other scenarios are unavailable for a romantic and sexy plot? I don’t think so. Or is that most erotica and romantic readers’ fantasy? I don’t think so after it’s been done, listened to, once. Can you say boring and overdone? Also, this author tries to create suspense and drama by ALWAYS, ALWAYS talking about the main characters’ “demons” and “secrets.” This is to create a need in the reader to continue listening and purchasing to find out what those unknowns are. Problem is that after a while this just seemed like a ploy b/c one “demon” or “secret” Sara revealed to Chris was much of nothing. Similarly, the author seemed to overuse relationship angst. One positive, I guess, is that the mystery of Rebecca’s absence was answered. So if anyone cares, that’s answered here. I was relieved when it was over & didn’t care when I slept through some parts. So I will not be continuing with this author. My first taste of her books is also my last.
