(Inside Out Series #6)
Lisa Renee Jones
~ Synopsis ~
Passion. Mystery. It all collides in the breathtaking conclusion to the New York Times bestselling INSIDE OUT series, ALL OF ME.
He's rich and famous, his past dark, but so is hers. Can they save each other? Or will the darkness tear them apart?
~ Excerpt ~ 
Entering the kitchen, I find Chris leaning on the marble countertop by the coffeepot, shirtless and

in his pajama bottoms, the long strands of his blond hair a wild, sexy mess I’m pretty sure I

created last night.

He glances up from the paper he’s reading, then picks up his coffee cup. “Morning, Ms.


“Morning, Mr. Merit,” I reply, grinning as I join him.

He offers me his coffee cup and I happily accept it, taking a drink of the perfectly flavored coffee

and creamer. Sharing a cup with Chris has this sexy, intimate feel to it that always does funny

things to my belly.

“Your last day as a free woman,” he comments.

“Why? Are you planning to tie me up sometime soon?”

He covers my hands on his cup. “Is that an objection, or wishful thinking?” He tilts the cup and

drinks, his eyes never leaving mine.

“I plead the Fifth. It’s more fun that way.”

“That it is,” he agrees, but a sigh follows. “I wish I could do the same, but you’d better look at

the newspaper.” He sets the cup on the counter, then hands me the Arts section of the local


Dread fills me as I read the headline: “Acclaimed Artist and Philanthropist Chris Merit to wed

Sara McMillan on Valentine’s Day in Star-studded Event in Sonoma.” I set it down. “We went to

so much trouble to get the press off our backs before the wedding, and now they’ve found us! I

knew when all these famous people showed up on the guest list, it was going to turn into a zoo.”

“Walker Security anticipated the press, and they’re staffed and ready for it. It’ll be fine. We’ll be


Nerves the size of birds, not butterflies, attack my stomach.

“We should have eloped.”

“We still can. Let’s do it. Now. Today.”

“We can’t elope,” I say, sounding appalled, as if he’d suggested it, not me. “People who respect

you are coming a long way to see us. And Katie has planned this for months.”

“Baby, we can do whatever we want. This is our day.”

“No. We can’t. Not this far into this. Which reminds me— you can’t stay here tonight. It’s bad

luck to see the bride the night before the wedding.”

“I told you how I feel about that. We make our own luck.”


He kisses me. “I’m staying here tonight, and I’m fucking you like I won’t see you ever again,

just to be sure you walk down that aisle.”

“If you’re waiting for me at the end of that aisle, I’ll be there. And if you’re staying here tonight,

we can use separate bedrooms.”

“Does today count as part of that eve-of-the-wedding rule?”


He scoops me up and I yelp. “What are you doing?”

“I’m a renegade, baby. Let’s go break the rules.”

~ Review ~
So this is it…..the end of Sara, Chris, Mark and Rebecca’s story.  I was always eager for the next installment in this series to see where Lisa Renee Jones would take the story.  Although I am glad that Chris and Sara finally get their much deserved happy ever after, I feel like Rebecca and Ava’s trial was barely touched on and was more of an afterthought. 

Did I enjoy the story yes.  Was it my favorite in the series, no.  I guess I was thinking that we would get more details about Rebecca’s death during the trial and that Ava’s trial and outcome would have a more predominant role.   

Now, don’t get me wrong. I missed Chris and Sara.  It’s been a while since we actually spent a good amount of time with them with several of the novellas leading up to this point were focused on Mark and Crystal.  I always enjoy watching Chris transform into his many different demeanors and give Sara exactly what she needs at the time.  He is truly like no other.

We also got a bit more insight into Tristan and Amber’s relationship.  I actually started to feel bad for the position that Tristan was left in…no one likes to be second best. 

Looking forward to the spin-off series that will revolve around Sara’s missing friend Ella.  That is one mystery left unsolved as we wrap the Inside Out Series, but something tells me we are in for a ride!
