Being Me

Being Me by Lisa Renee Jones

Publisher: Gallery Books

June 2013

ISBN: 978-1-4767-2721-9

Pages: 351

Contemporary, California

As Sara McMillan is continuing her search for Rebecca she is also being drawn more and more to artist Chris Merit.  Sara also has a strong desire to indulge in her boss’ demands.  The more Sara reads in Rebecca’s journals the more she is drawn to Rebecca’s life and what Rebecca writes about. 

Though with the mystery of what has happened to Rebecca unsolved trusting the wrong man could prove to be very costly for Sara if she is not careful.  Because while it seems she has found a safe haven to share her intimate secrets and explore her fantasies she needs to figure out if that safety is real or just an illusion.  Rebecca’s haunting words is also making Sara face a past she thought she had left behind. 

This one picks up right after If I Were You left off.  This story is not a disappointment in the least.  While it does tie up some of the loose ends left from the first book it gives the reader a few more to leave them dangling for the next book.  This is also a very emotional book that will have reader reaching for a box of tissue.  The plot of this one is very good and will have readers turning the pages just to see what the characters are hiding and what will happen next.  The reader will see the characters doing some emotional growing that makes them seem even more human.  This is one series that is definitely living up to what is being said and to readers’ expectations.   While most books that end in cliff hangers tend to disappoint this one doesn’t. 

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
