Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 2: The Contract
Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 2: The Contract - Lisa Renee Jones Rebecca's seduction continues with The Contract. In this installment, Mark, her boss, has already seduced her. Rebecca knows what is like to have sex with this gorgeous man, she wants more. The only problem is he doesn't want to move forward unless she's sure of what she wants to do. Mark wants her, but he won't force her.

Rebecca goes over the contract, there are things such as: sharing her with others, that she just doesn't want to agree to. It's a hard limit, but Mark talks her into trying at least once, everything she objects to. He tells her that is the only way she'd know whether it is a hard limit or not.

Rebecca thinks it over, but decides to decline the contract. It's too bad she can't have him without it. Or so she thinks. Mark doesn't take "no" that easy, and offers to show her what she will miss out if she doesn't sign.

This was another teaser into these series. Why, why, why must I wait until the rest come out? Why?

I'm a fan of these series and the next installment can't get here soon enough.

Blurb:

An Inside Out novella...

The secret life of Rebecca and the men who have seduced her.
These are the journals Sara never sees, but you the reader, will!

More Details:

The journals read like stories and begin the first time Rebecca visits the gallery in the INSIDE OUT TRILOGY. You will meet Mark, Chris, Ava, Amanda, Ricco, and all the series characters as she does AND there are tons of clues to what happens in BEING ME in the first 4 serials. They are woven within the story ready for your discovery, as is Rebecca's dark, erotic journey.

Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction
Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction - Lisa Renee Jones I've been anxiously waiting for these series. Lisa Renee Jones first introduced her readers to If I Were You-- a super sexy story, where the whereabouts of Rebecca are unknown.

All there is left of Rebecca are the journals she kept. In these journals, she talks about her new life changing experiences with none other than her boss. The way Rebecca describes what's been happening to her, draws Sara in unti she can no longer pull back.

The Seduction is the first of the journals where Rebecca talks about the new man in her life and the things he's got her doing. Mark draws her into his very dark, very wicked world. He wants her, but he wants her to make sure that when she decides to be with him is because she really wants to be there. Once Rebecca steps into his world, she finds no way out.

Mark is this gorgeous Dom who always gets what he wants, so what's new right? Rebecca is new, that's what! And, he'd do anything (it's what it seems like) to keep her.

I love, love, love these series. I want them all to just be out already. The guessing is killing me, the suspense in it teases me, and the sex in it keeps me turning the page.

Review: Rebecca's Lost Journals by Lisa Renee Jones
Rebecca's Lost Journals - Lisa Renee Jones

Initial reaction: Great narrative on the part of Rebecca, but Mark's felt odd in comparison.

Full review:

For the most part, the compilation of "Rebecca's Lost Journals" pleasantly surprised me. This takes the short stories/novellas that were written between measures in the "Inside Out" trilogy and puts them into one volume. I would definitely recommend reading Rebecca's journals (the first four stories in this narrative) after the first book, while Mark's narrative should be read after the second book/before the third.

That said, I clearly think that the stronger narratives in this collection were on the behalf of Rebecca; thankfully her stories take up the majority of this picture. I remembered reading the Inside Out trilogy wanting to know more about her and trying to understand why Sara was so fascinated by her journals. I got my answer with reading her accounts for myself. There's an intimacy to Rebecca's perspective that made it very easy to know what she was thinking and feeling as she went from working a waitress job to her dream job as an art seller, and under the wing of her push/pull lover, Mark Compton.

Rebecca actually managed to make me chuckle a few times as I read through her entries (Double Stuffed Oreos, FTW!) and I'll admit that when she described her journey through becoming a submissive, I followed her to see the impressions it made upon her, and ultimately how she ended up having a falling out with the lifestyle because it changed her so much, to the point where she felt she became unrecognizable, even to herself. I appreciated reading it, even if in some points the situations themselves were a bit on the awkward/personal comfort zone transcending side.

I almost gave this a full 4 stars for how well it was executed and engaged me, but then the very last story dropped the ball. Mark's narrative was not needed in this - it was a waste of time. While it's true that Mark's character never fully clicked with me for various reasons (though I do admit it was more interesting following him when I didn't have his narrative perspective), I felt this was not a good representation of the character. What was the point? To show Mark engaging in another relationship with another woman who challenged him? To show his guilt over Rebecca, his need to possess in a dom/sub relationship? It just felt like the portrayal of the character in itself was inauthentic and awkward. His character voice grated on me and I just didn't care for it. It threw me out of the pull the previous stories had, and ended up concluding the narrative on a "meh" note for me.

I'd recommend this certainly for the strength of Rebecca's narratives alone, especially for those who've read the "Inside Out" trilogy, but honestly - the latter story on Mark is one you could skip and not miss much.

Overall score: 3.5/5 stars

Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher Gallery Books.

Reading progress update: I've read 26%.
Rebecca's Lost Journals - Lisa Renee Jones

I'm enjoying this far more than I thought I would, and hope to finish it sometime this evening.  Mostly it's Rebecca's narrative that's pulling me into the story, and while I have an idea of what happens to her now, I'm still going through the events to see how it all transpires.  Still reading.

Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction - Lisa Renee Jones I'm definitely in the minority when it comes to this one but I just didn't find myself enjoying it that much. It was interesting to get a glimpse of Rebecca's life before she disappeared but I don't feel connected enough to her to really care about her story.

If you've read If I Were You you'll see that Rebecca and Sara are pretty much the same character. I just find it impossible to believe that the person who randomly finds Rebecca's journals has exactly the same tastes, education and dreams for the future as she did. I also can't understand why both of them are so attracted to Mark - he really is a complete and utter douche and I can't stand him.

I think for what it is this story is completely overpriced, it's currently £1.99 on kindle and is only about 40 pages long. I'm assuming you have to read all four of the short stories in Rebecca's journal to get any kind of resolution to the story because this one certainly doesn't add anything new to the series on it's own.

I don't think I'll be reading any more of Rebecca's Lost Journals. I'd rather save my money for something I know I'm going to enjoy. I haven't made up my mind about continuing with the Inside Out Trilogy though, I already have the next 2 books so I might give them a try at some point but I'm not going to be in any rush to do so - I'm starting to come to the conclusion that this series and I just aren't meant to be.
