5 of 5 Being Me
Being Me oh Lord where do I begin..... First I have to say that Lisa has done it again! I mean I was so enthralled with this book that I did nothing but read and until I finished the book. I did not cook or clean but instead I locked myself up in my reading room and read in my favorite chair. I could not get enough of this story and I will say this this review is going to be spoiler free because you have got to read this series. I mean it is just something that has to be read in order to experience the full effect. So here goes my review spoiler free. In If I Were You we meet Sara who found a journal in her friends storage unit and read it. She became intrigued with the journal and soon found herself going to the places the owner of the journal went to. Soon Sara found herself caught up in the middle of this life she is not so sure she wants. To make matters worse she meets Chris the tormented artist and Mark the control freak boss of the art gallery she is now working for.
When we ended If I Were You Chris and Sara were hanging on by a thread because Chris showed her what his lifestyle was and part of that lifestyle Sara thought she could not handle and some she could. Sara has realized that she has fallen in love with Chris and wants to be with him no matter if he is tormented or not. Sara is still struggling with her past and she is not sure if she wants to take this journey with Chris or not. Sara now knows that Chris is a Dominant and she would be his Submissive but is that lifestyle right for her? With her past looming over her she is not so sure she wants to be a submissive.
Sara is confused more than ever when she starts to unravel Rebecca's journal. Sara knows that Rebecca entered into this lifestyle and enjoyed it for a while until it got to be to much for her and she disappeared. Sara is a 100% sure Rebecca is dead but she needs the hard proof not just the journal. Then after some more digging on her part Sara finds out who Rebecca's Master is and when you read it and find out who it is it will blow your mind. I mean totally blow your mind like it did to me. I thought it was one person but it ended up being someone else. Once Sara finds out she will have to decide who she will trust. That list is not easy and while she is figuring that out she will have to decide whether or not to deal with Chris anymore or to even trust Mark.
What will Sara decide...... Mark the control freak...... or Chris the tortured artist......
