Escaping Reality and Infinite Possibilities (The Secret Life of Amy Benson) by Lisa Renee Jones
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.
At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?
Secrets and lies. They are everywhere: haunting her, tormenting her. In the midst of it all, he’d been her escape, her passion. The only person she’d trusted in six years. And then he’d made her doubt that trust, cutting her deeply. But as she’d once told him, she was damaged, not broken. She is ready to fight and not just for survival. She is fighting for the truth and she won’t stop until she has it, not even for…him.
Abby’s Review 5 stars (reviewed together)
WOW I just ate these two books, literally absorbed everything I could in just a day and a half. Don’t buy just one! Once I finished the first my one clicking finger couldn’t click fast enough and then for some reason it wasn’t downloading the second fast enough. I had to be somewhere in fifteen minutes, but those were valuable minutes that I needed to start the next, and amazon was being weird, WTH, of course being the obsessed reader I am I needed to read for those fifteen minutes before I had to leave, I had to start the next one!!! (Yep it’s one of those types of books)
You want to read something that feels like you are watching a sexy series fueled with secrets, lies, bad guys and alpha males? This is it. The whole time I was on the edge, feeling like an awesome show was unfolding before my eyes.
I was a gluttonous reader with these two. Now, it’s time for me too do some Lisa Renee Jones stalking, cause I can tell she is an author that I am going to want to eat up every word she writes, like the gluttonous book slore I am!
