Rebecca’s Lost Journals.....

Rebecca Mason has known heartache and sorrow in her life, losing everyone she loves. She’s on her own in San Francisco, lost in every way, until she dares to make the decision to chase her dream of working in the art world. It is then that he meets a rich, seductively powerful man who will become the Master she never knew she wanted and change her life forever. He will lead her on a dark, passionate journey where pain is pleasure and pleasure is pain, and where every limit she once had is no more. In this man, she will find solace to her pain, an escape from the ache inside her. And in him, she will discover a darkness she may never escape.



Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars


Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction (Inside Out, #1.1)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is a really short excerpt from one of Rebecca’s journals. She explains how she came to work at the Art Gallery, and how her relationship with Mark started. There is a couple of sex scenes – including her first encounter with Mark, which was fairly steamy. This is pretty short though, and is really just a bit of a teaser for the main book.
Overall; okay short excerpt from Rebecca’s journals.
6.5 out of 10.




Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 2: The Contract by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars


Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 2: The Contract (Inside Out, #1.2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was another short excerpt from Rebecca’s diaries, in which Rebecca and Mark work out some kinks in the contract between Master and Sub.

This was another short sexy excerpt, and once again had some steamy sex scenes.
We found out a little more about Rebecca and how she felt about the contract, and also how she felt about Mark, and the possibility of her not being his only sub.
This was once again very short though, and not a great deal happened .
Overall; a good sexy short.
7.5 out of 10.



Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 3: His Submissive by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 3: His Submissive (Inside Out, #1.3)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was another short excerpt from Rebecca’s diaries, which once again focused on the contract, and her master’s desire that she be 100% ready before signing it. This was once again short, and there wasn’t even the same sort of erotic scenes in this one as there were in the first two, and without the sex, I’m struggling to see the point of this one.
Overall; more conversation than erotica.
6 out of 10.



Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 4: My Master by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 3.75 of 5 stars


Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 4: My Master (Inside Out, #1.4)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This was another interesting short, and I liked this one because Rebecca finally got tough, and really stuck up for her own ideas and values, and refused to let her ‘Master’ control her any more. She’s been fairly willing to go along with anything up ‘til now, so it was nice to see her trying to take back a bit of that control. It did feel like this wasn’t the end of Rebecca’s story though, which is obviously a bit frustrating!
Overall; Rebecca takes back some control.
7.5 out of 10



The Master Undone by Lisa Renee Jones

My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars


The Master Undone (Inside Out, #2.5)(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Pocket Star and Edelweiss.)
This is a short story which comes after ‘Being Me’ in the ‘Inside Out’ Trilogy, and follows Mark as he journeys to New York to see his mother who is in hospital for surgery for her cancer.
Whilst in New York Mark meets Crystal, a woman who works for his mother, and seems to be one of the few people that dares to boss him about.

This was an interesting short from the series, and it was good to get a bit more of an insight into Mark and his ideas and beliefs. I really liked how Crystal managed to get under his skin so well, and managed to make him feel things that he had never felt before. I loved Crystal for her calm confidence and no-nonsense approach to Mark, and I loved how off-kilter it made Mark!
I wonder if we will see more of Crystal and Mark in the last book in the trilogy?
Overall; a fun and sexy short where Mark isn’t in control!
6.5 out of 10.
