The third installment in the sexy Inside Out erotic romance series—in the seductive tradition of Fifty Shades of Grey.

I really wanted to enjoy this book as much as the first two, my dear readers, but I couldn't. I like Lisa Renee Jones, I really do, but this book unfortunately pushed all the wrong buttons and made me dissolve into a simple rant, which I apologise for in advance.

While the first two instalments of Inside Out trilogy read like a roller coaster, Revealing Us got stuck in non-existent plot and character development and lost its drive.

Chris and Sara are in Paris, for God's sake! I don't know what can be more romantic. She doesn't know the language, doesn't want to lean on Chris in the meantime and whines almost non-stop. 

Oh, you poor little baby, you don't like French food... You can't work until you get a proper working visa... You can't do this, can't do that while your sexy billionaire boyfriend tries to help you get excited about all the new opportunities... You know what? Get an effing grip, woman! Try something before you reject it outright. I wanted to strangle the main heroine, that's how irritating and immature she was.

And don't let me start on her stupid, naive mistakes and desire to save people who do not deserve it and who brazenly manipulate her...

I suppose I should say thanks that the author is skilled enough to bring out such strong emotions in a reader, but for me this particular book, the lack of something significant happening, and reappearance of Sara's friend only towards the end almost as an afterthought - all of this did not work as a whole. I hope you like it better.

Ну вот, насколько первые две книги трилогии мне понравились, третья здесь была также нужна как телеге пятое колесо. 

Никакого развития сюжета или персонажей; какие-то нелепые, наивные, глупые ошибки со стороны главной героини... Сара доводила меня до ручки несмотря на то, что она и Крис проводят всю книгу в Париже, что само по себе должно быть интересно.

Ну нет же, она ноет, что ей не нравится французская еда. Ах, простите, ей не нравится сама идея французской еды, так как таковую она её не пробует! Она ноет, потому что не знает язык. Ноет потому, что не хочет опираться финансово на Криса и на то, что без соответствующей визы во Франции ей нельзя работать. Ну короче, типичная американка, твою налево.

Сара также не обращает внимания на грозящую ей опасность и пытается помочь старой подруге Криса, которая ей бессовестно и нагло манипулирует. 

Помимо прочего, пропавшая подруга Сары объявляется только к концу книги как будто автор о ней совсем забыла и спохватилась только на последних страницах. 

В общем, несмотря на то, что Лиза Ренэ Джонс мне нравится, эта книга умудрилась вызвать во мне только раздражение. Надеюсь, вам повезёт больше.

That would have driven me crazy too! Oh well, not every book can be awesome.

I agree with you! I finished this this morning, and I was disappointed. Sara really annoyed me with the moaning, and so little actually happened! I'm also annoyed that this series has turned into 5 books instead of the original three! I think this book could have been summed up in a couple of chapters of the next book rather than needing a whole book for a trip to paris.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
