Passion. Mystery. It all collides in the breathtaking conclusion to the New York Times bestselling INSIDE OUT series, ALL OF ME.
He's rich and famous, his past dark, but so is hers. Can they save each other? Or will the darkness tear them apart?
Excerpt from All of Me (Inside Out #6) by Lisa Renee Jones. Copyright 2014
We say a quick goodbye, and to my shock, the instant I push the “end” button, Chris pulls
the 911 to the shoulder of the road, puts it in park and turns to me. “Talk to me. What just
“You stopped to ask me what happened?”
“Yes. I stopped to ask what happened. Now, tell me.”
My lashes lower a moment as I savor just how good this man is to me. I curl my fingers
on my cheek. “Thank you for stopping, but really, there was nothing worthy of concern. Let’s go
to the chateau.”
“After you tell me what happened,” he orders, but the tenderness lacing the stubborn
determination of his tone wins me over, as does his sincerity. He really cares and I am truly not
“When Katie wanted to know if there was anyone on my side of the family to coordinate
with, it hit a nerve. I started worrying about Ella, and thinking about my father, who I don’t want
to come to our wedding. I truly don’t, yet somehow, the very fact that I don’t gives him the
power to twist me in knots.”
Chris nods. “As did my father to me, no matter how much of a bastard he became.
Sometimes I think the worse he treated me, the more I wanted to win back his affection.”
I’d seen glimpses of these feelings before now, but this is the first time he’s spoken them
aloud. “Maybe it’s some inborn need to feel close to a parent?”
“That’s the only conclusion I could come to when I couldn’t let him go. I still can’t. He’s
always with me, making sure I stay just a little more fucked up.”
“If you’re fucked up, it’s all kinds of right, Chris Merit. That charity work Tristan talked
about? You don’t just throw money at it. You give pieces of your soul to those kids and their
families. You make a difference and I’ll be honored to help you do it.”
He pulls my hand to his mouth and kisses my fingers. “Let’s elope. Anyplace you want to
go. Say the word and as far as I’m concerned we’ll go tomorrow.”
“What? No. We decided on Katie and Mike’s place together. And my ring isn’t even
“This isn’t about a ring. Or Katie and Mike, or anyone else. It’s about us and I don’t want
you worried about your father or the guest list. You know I’m not big on attention anyway.”
I lace my fingers with his. “You’re trying to protect me and I appreciate that, but I want to
get married under those hanging rose your mother inspired Katie to plant.”
“Don’t do this for me, baby. I just want to spend the rest of my life with you. That’s all I
“It’s for us. You know my father is just a hot button for me. I’ll get by it. And truth be
told, I’m a little raw over Amber, too. That night here in Paris when I went to the club I had this
sense I needed to save her. I shouldn’t have listened to that feeling.”
“Don’t do that to yourself. You barely knew her.”
“Yet, on some level I felt her screaming for help. But I second-guessed myself and
thought it was Rebecca and Ella influencing my feelings.”
“You were a lot of the reason I pushed to get Amber help, Sara. It was just too little too
late. That’s on me, not you.”
“Yes,” he says, stroking the hair out of my eyes, his hand staying at the back of my head.
“Now here’s what’s going to happen. We’re going to leave this all right here and I’m going to
drive us the fifteen minutes we have left to get to the chateau, where we’re going to fuck like
rabbits. Then, we’re going to eat and fuck some more. After we sleep, we’ll set some rules with
Katie about the wedding so you won’t worry about it and then we’ll fuck some more. And since I
had the caretaker that lives in the house behind the chateau stock enough food to last us a week,
we can stay in bed for days on end. Any objections so far?”
I smile and not just at his words, but at his rapid shift from dark Chris, to playful, sexy
Chris. “And if I do?”
He, leans closer to me, his breath on my ear. “I’ll just tie you to the bed.”
Yes. Please. My list of objections begins to form.
I blink up at Mark, who’s as tall, blond, and good-looking as usual but unfamiliar nevertheless. “I must be in a Bizarro World where you call people by their first names.”
He smoothes the sleeve of his perfectly fitted grey suit. “What is Bizarro World?”
“You haven’t seen that episode of Seinfeld? It’s an alternate universe.”
“No, I have not seen that episode of Seinfeld, but I agree. Perhaps we are in Bizarro World, since the Sara I know likes to be called by her first name.”
“Isn’t that exactly why you always call me Ms. McMillan?”
“Perhaps I can’t stomach the idea of calling you Mrs. Merit.”
I grin. “Why don’t you wait until Chris walks in to give him a hard time?”
His lips curve into what is almost a smile, and I know I’ve busted him. “Because he doesn’t take my bait the way you do.”
“You’re maddening, Mark Compton.”
“So you tell me.”

My All of Me Review...
Finally the day has come that we get to see Sara and Chris have their very deserved HEA. For Sara and Chris this journey has been a difficult one but very rewarding in the end. Chris has very deep seated demons but Sara helped to save him and vice versa for her. However, their demons aren't done for them. As Chris and Sara make their way back to Paris, Chris is faced with more of his past and personal haunts. But will he seek out the whip or his safe haven with Sara?
"I meant what I said to Tristan, Sara. You pulled me out of hell. I'm not trying to climb back in."
Sara and Chris have a relationship based on breaking rules and living outside the box but this is what makes them stronger and more united. Everyone is a bit broken but for them finding each other is what helped make them whole.
Now that things are dying down with the craziness of Ava they can finally focus on their upcoming nuptials. Chris will always have his battles and Sara is coming in her own but together they make it work in their unconventional ways.
"You are the reason I breathe."
This series was uniquely done. It was a long multifaceted series which some times had too much time in between, which makes you forget certain elements that can cause some scenarios confusing at times. However, I think this would be an amazing series to be done as a re-read as a finished series but, alas time is not on my side right now but maybe in the future. Even though we think this series is down now that we have Sara & Chris's as well as Marc and Crystals HEA but nope we get aspin off parts as we still have to find out what happens with Ella.
The way this series was set up and left off there is actually so much more potential with all of Walker security as well as Tristan, Chantal and Rey. So we will see where it all goes but it was great to see Sara and Chris get their own HEA.
4 Beautiful Thumbs up!!!
