Blog Tour - Book Review: No In Between (Inside Out #4) by Lisa Renee Jones (@lisareneejones @inkslingerpr)
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT SERIES, and is now in development by Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland, Austin Powers, Must Love Dogs) for cable TV. In addition, her Tall, Dark and Deadly series and The Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, both spent several months on a combination of the NY Times and USA Today and USA Today lists.
Since beginning her publishing career in 2007, Lisa has published more than 40 books translated around the world. Booklist says that Jones suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.
Prior to publishing, Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.
I'm going to try and keep this review as spoiler free as possible, however, as the fourth book in a true series (read: books should be read in order to have a full understanding of characters and plot points), there may be some minor spoilers in the following paragraphs.
No In Between starts off with Chris and Sara returning from Paris, after overcoming quite a lot while they were abroad. The two have conquered many obstacles to get to where they are now and it looks as if they could possibly get a happy ending. But if you've read Lisa Renee Jones, it's not going to be easy for the two. As with the prior books in the Inside Out series, No In Between is intense, suspenseful, and erotic. There's a little bit of everything for all readers - romance, revenge, and betrayal. There's plot twists that leave a reader wondering if certain questions will be answered and guessing what will happen next. While it's a bit of a roller coaster, I loved this about No In Between. When I'm reading a suspenseful novel, there's nothing worse then guessing the ending before I get to it. There's no chance of that when reading and Inside Out novel! I'm already eagerly anticipating the next book in this series.
No In Between also delves into the character of Mark, missing Rebecca's (former?) boss at the art gallery, and a definite person of interest in her disappearance. Mark becomes more of a central character in the fourth book and I loved the relationship between the three that is shown in No In Between. Since the beginning of the series, I was interested in learning more about Mark's character - what made him into the man he is - and I'm excited that Lisa Renee Jones gives readers more background on him in this novel.
I enjoyed reading No In Between, even with the huge cliffhanger at the end. Usually this will put me off a series, but I am so invested in Lisa Renee's characters that it just made me more excited to read the next book, I Belong To You. I'll be looking forward to it hitting the shelves in November!

Contemporary Erotic Romance
Published: 19 August 2014
"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."

Melody Anne is the author of the popular series, Billionaire Bachelors, and Baby for the Billionaire. She also has a Young Adult Series out; Midnight Fire and Midnight Moon - Rise of the Dark Angel. She's been writing for years and published in 2011. She hold a bachelors degree in business, so she loves to write about strong, powerful, businessmen.
Excerpt from Bound:
“I’m pleased we’re now business partners. I think this venture will be a success.”
Blake Knight laughed as he shook hands with Rafe Palazzo, happy the man had finally decided to come to visit from San Francisco. Though Blake had known Rafe for many years, this was the first project the two of them had paired up on. The contracts were signed, and the deal would put a few more hundreds of millions into both of their already fat wallets.
“I don’t think there’s a venture out there with your name on it that isn’t a success, Rafe.”
“Ah, my friend, the same can be said about what you and your brothers do,” Rafe replied without missing a beat.
“We’re just that damn good, I guess,” Blake said.
Though at first glance they might come off as smug and self-satisfied, and they might look at multimillion-dollar investments the same way an average person looked at depositing twenty dollars into their savings account, the men were shrewd. They knew how to make money, and they knew they’d always keep making more.
Only a select few ruled the world, and Blake Knight had decided, when he was a young boy and his parents’ lives ended right before his very eyes, that he would never be vulnerable again. He would never be one of the weak, easy prey to a world packed with predators. No one would sneak up on him and catch him unawares.
“Let’s have a drink, and you can fill me in on what you’ve been doing for the past year,” Rafe told Blake. “Too much time has gone by since our last visit.”
The two of them moved toward the conference room doors at Knight Construction.
“You’re the one who sold your soul to a woman and disappeared,” Blake reminded his friend.
“Don’t knock it, Blake. Ari has changed my life and made me a better man.”
“Oh, please, please, for the love of all that’s holy, do not continue,” Blake said, horrified to hear these words coming from a man who was once one of the most ruthless bachelors he’d ever met. “I remember the days when you thought no woman was true, no woman could ever be trusted. Marriage — your second marriage — has ruined you.”
“There was a time, Blake, when I would have thrown you up against a wall for just thinking me the slightest bit weak.”
“Ha! You would have tried,” Blake said.
Neither of them was remotely upset by the exchange, of course. All friendly banter.
Contemporary Erotic Romance
Published: 25 August 2014 by Gossamer
Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age fourteen. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.
When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.
Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.
When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.
Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…
