Book Review : I Belong To You (Inside Out #5) by Lisa Renee Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Epic Conclusion to Mark and Crystal’s story
Thrilling.Intense.Gripping And Heartbreaking
Lisa Renee Jones is the ultimate mother of all plots and twists when it comes to NA fiction novels.
The 5th instalment in this sexy trilogy is about Mark and Crystal’s pasts that keep on haunting them. About how they both have to overcome their own “monsters” in order to move on to another chapter in their life.
Still with Ava and Jimenez on the loose, they have to take good measures to protect not only themselves, but everyone they love, including Riptide’s employees.
In the last two books of the series, we got to see another side of Mark. A soft side that we did not know he had, due to the fact that he’s so damn good at hiding it. Now, we get to know his true story and why he is so fond of being a badass.
His past isn’t all that happy as we were tempted to believe. In fact, at some point I thought that he was “cursed” when it came to having a relationship with someone. The unfortunate event that had led him to play Master and Submissive, took place like 10 years ago and is very heartbreaking.
His feelings for Crystal run very deep and he finds it hard to admit that he really loves her. But in the end he takes the chance and tells her how he feels about her.
The bossy girl has a very heartbreaking past as well, and while she tries to hide beneath the hard surface of a bossy woman who can control herself and everything around her, the monsters of the past resurfaces and she finds it hard to tell Mark about it. This is until, one night when father invites them both over for diner and Daniel – her brother – jumps at Mark telling him about her past and making sure he understands that if he hurts Crystal, he’ll be paying real bad for it.
A very crazy turn of events changes everything and Mark is facing once again the fear of losing someone he loves. The desire of vengence getting bigger with each passing minute. Will their love story end here or will it have a happy ending ?!
