I Belong to You, Lisa Renee Jones

I Belong to You, Lisa Renee Jones

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews.

I love this series and have always found Mark to be a fascinating person, so much hidden under the enigmatic facade he presents to the world. Finally, finally we get some answers to him. Crystal too – she’s always had quite a reserved front, and I suspected she was hiding something but – Wow – not that….
The heat is up, Mark’s mum is still very ill, Ava and Corey still on the run but suspected to be after Mark, allied with someone dangerous helping them, the police still seem to suspect Mark is hiding something, the press still looking for dirt and sex scandals, and in the midst of all that Crystal is still trying to keep Riptide running. Then things come out that make Mark suspect she’s a target too.
Oh I really enjoyed this novella for the answers we finally got, and for the in-depth view we get of Mark. He’s struggling with so much going on, so much he can’t predict and allow on his own terms, and  he starts to look at his constant need for control of everything. It’s masked problems from his past, and allowed him to cope but in truth he’s done that at a price, not allowing himself to love with Rebecca, something he now regrets. Its time for a change or go under, with events running beyond his jurisdiction,  and Crystal gives him the impetus to make it. I love the way the present and the past are tied together, the way what worked for Mark then was explained, and how we see that now he’s changed he needs a different solution. Its a very emotional read, fast paced with danger at every turn, and yet still Marks trademark ar$e-holeness as Crystal calls it, coming through when his control starts to slip. He’s not going to change overnight but we can see that he’s on the way to a brighter future. It’s a great read, and though it can be read as a standalone I think it’s best with the knowledge that came from the other books.
Its a series I’ll happily reread back to back when finally I have all the books. There are so many characters involved now that I’m interested to see how I view events at the beginning of the series, armed with how I now know things go. My only problem with the series is the way its separated out into so many parts, making it a very expensive read. However Lisa’s writing is very good, and she weaves a tight and exciting story, around characters that are fascinating and leaves the reader wanting to know how everything resolves.
Stars: Five. Once again a great read, my usual gripes about splitting novels in this way apart…

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
