Description

When Sara McMillan finds a stack of journals in a storage unit, she's shocked and enthralled by the erotic life the writer led. Unable to stop reading, she vicariously lives out dark fantasies through Rebecca, the writer-until the terrifying final entry. Certain something sinister has happened, Sara sets out to discover the facts, immersing herself in Rebecca's life. Soon she's working at the art gallery Rebecca worked at and meeting Rebecca's friends. Finding herself drawn to two dangerously sexy men, the manager of the gallery and a famed artist, Sara realizes she's going down the same path Rebecca took. But with the promise of her dark needs being met by a man with confident good looks and a desire for control, she's not sure anything else matters. Just the burn for more.show more

www.booksforcompany.com In Short - Gripping, Intense and intriguing. - The writing is fascinating - Heart breaking irresistible male characters. In Long The whole concept of If I Were You is just damn awesome. It’s as simple as that. It has everything you want in a book and more! I really can’t pick any faults with it so there is no point in even trying. The whole mystery of Rebecca is truly gripping and I found myself becoming obsessed in trying to find more out about Rebecca just like Sara was. Because of this it’s pretty much impossible to put the book down from a few pages in. The writing is just irresistible and charming. The characters become more alive with each chapter and I loved getting to know them more as I got further into the book. I found Sara a brilliant main character with a lot of heart and someone I would easily be friends with in real life. Of course there is the heart breaking delicious male characters who tick every right box and more! I totally fell for them both and felt both sorry for and jealous of Sara! I can’t recommend this book enough. I think it’s a brilliant book for people who want a bit more of a story line to their erotic books and I am sure once you have picked it up you won’t be putting it down until you finish the last page. Final Thoughts On a side note, make sure you have the second book at hand because you will NEED it as soon as you finish the last page of If I Were Youshow more

WOW. If I Were You is a story that gripped me from the very first line. I found it to be mysterious, intriguing, and very sexy. If I Were You is a delicious blend of gorgeous writing and intriguing story. And...I'm kind of hesitant to bring this up, but I want to point out that while the synopsis compares this series to another, don't let that dissuade you (for those who would find that comparison a negative). I found If I Were You to be completely it's own and so well done. It is erotic, both physically and mentally. If I Were You is a bit of story-within-a-story. When Sara McMillan becomes obsessed with Rebecca's erotic journal entries, recounting her experiences with a man known as "He", she is led into a world of art and passion. As she becomes more involved, her life begins to parallel Rebecca's more and more. I could barely stand to put the book down, because as Sara becomes more wrapped up in Rebecca's life, I feel as if she will end up down the same path. It seems that this is inevitable, but who knows... Though Rebecca's journals did lead her down this path, this is Sara's story. And while I, too, am dying with curiosity over where Rebecca is, I am even more curious about Sara and the two men who've become a force in her life. There's her boss, Mark. He's a hard guy to read, seems to want Sara to succeed, but there is definitely more going on. I wasn't sure what was going on with him, and at the end, I'm still not. The other man is Chris Merit, an artist. CHRIS! From the moment he entered the story with his humor, charm, and yes, mysterious vibe, I was hooked. Chris was so complex, wanting to be with Sara, and yet afraid she'll run away once she knows the real him. Like Sara, I was alternately puzzled and drawn in by this man with the many secrets. And no, I still haven't figured him out. If I Were You practically took over my life from the moment I began. I wanted more of Rebecca's journals, to know what happened to her. I want to know Mark, and more importantly, Chris. These two have a strained dynamic, and I must know why. I want to know if these men are who they seem, if either know what happened to Rebecca. If either will lead her down that same road. If I Were You is a completely fascinating story, from beginning to end.show more

The premise of this book is an interesting one and it fits in well with the worlds current obsession with Storage Auctions and their finds. The heroine, Sara is given a set of three journals that were found in a unit filled with a womans worldly possessions. Sara is captivated by what she reads and curious about finding the woman who penned them. All she has is a name, Rebecca Mason, and a phone number that no longer works, determined to do the right thing and return her belongings, Sara begins her search for Rebecca. Along the way Sara finds herself living Rebecca's life while Rebecca is nowhere to be found. This book is being touted as 50 Shades of Grey meets Basic Instinct and to be honest that was enough to put me off but I am a huge fan of Lisa's work so I sat down with an open mind and read. I was not disappointed in the slightest, in fact I believe that this is some of Lisa's best work. The characters are a varied bunch and it was easy to lose myself in the Art Gallery and bring them to life in my mind. Sara started off a little meek but she showed amazing character growth as her confidence grew,I'm looking forward to seeing that continue and meet the woman she will become by the end of the trilogy. The two main male characters had me twisted up in knots! Mark owns the Gallery and I'm not to sure of him, Chris is the tortured artist and it was easy to see why Sara fell for him. They both have secrets, ulterior motives and yes we start to unravel these as the story develops but there is so much more to come. The supporting cast had a variety of personalities and I liked them all I have a feeling a few of them will have larger parts in the upcoming books. The sex scenes were sizzling hot! I loved the passion between Sara and Chris and I hope to God he does get her to pose for him at some point! The main feel of these books is mystery, there is so much going on and motivations aren't yet clear, we still have the main questions of where exactly is Rebecca? and just who is being wrote about in the journal? I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, I can't wait to discover everyones secrets.show more
