Blog Tour and Review: No In Between, by Lisa Renee Jones

The fourth in the Inside Out erotic romance series by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, this steamy novel resolves Chris and Sarah's relationship and leads into Mark's story.
"Chris and I have faced our demons and bared our souls to one another in Paris. Now that we are back home in San Francisco, I want to believe that nothing can tear us apart. Not Ava’s accusations against me to the police, or Chris's fear that he will destroy me as he feels he did Amber. And not Mark, who was once too intimately a part of our lives, and who I can see crumbling inside out. He believes he is invincible, just as I want to believe Chris and I are invincible. We have to be invincible. We need each other too much for any other ending."

4.5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this series!  Seriously, it's like the perfect combination of mystery, suspense and romance with a healthy dose of smut.  Not to mention addictive.  I had no idea when I first read Rebecca's Lost Journals (my first book of the Inside Out Series) how quickly I would be sucked into the lives of Chris, Sara, Mark and Rebecca.  It's like I cannot get enough, a definite guilty pleasure!  But be warned, if you haven't read any of these books then don't ruin them by reading this review, which may contain some spoilers.

No In Between takes our favorite characters and further immerse us into their lives.  Author Lisa Renee Jones did a brilliant job weaving us deeper and deeper into the story and details surrounding Rebecca's murder, you even begin to see a few of the secondary characters fighting their way to the forefront of the story.  I was right there with Sara second guessing everything I once thought I knew. 

From the first time Chris and Sara met I found myself rooting for these two to make it.  They have chemistry and passion.  An mutual understanding and respect of each other, knowing when to push and when to support.  They compliment each other so well and I have loved seeing their growth, both individual and in their relationship, in each of the books.  It's progressed so naturally and finally in No In Between we see the two of these character find the same page, find the same comfort and confidence in their relationship and I was left longing for what I assume will be their final chapter when it releases this upcoming Valentine's Day.

How does Lisa Renee Jones manage to come up with all these twists and turns?  While reading this series I have never found myself bored.  I'm not going to lie, until Rebecca's body is found I am always going to hold out hope her story isn't over.  Whatever happens it's apparent this one woman's life has changed the course of so many others.  Especially Mark, this book takes him down a path of vulnerability.  He is at his breaking point and although Chris and Sara are trying their best to help, to keep him together its obvious his path is going to continue to be rocky until he is completely broken.  I am excited to see what Lisa Renee Jones has in store for him!

In conclusion, this series is fantastic, addictive, a must-read.  I have enjoyed all the books, each one gets better and better because you learn more and more.  It's like a 1000 piece puzzle, the more pieces you put together the harder it is to put down.  Treat yourselves and dive into these books!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
