Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones PLUS Giveaway!

Lisa Renee Jones's first New Adult release
Publication Date: July 22, 2013
Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….
His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breath? He is what I need.
 At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard down, the ghost’s of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.   
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes? 
And look for Book 2: Within the Fire!
Available for Preorder:


My Review
Before I start this review, let me apologize. This review may be all over the place because that's where this book left me. I'm still running scenarios in my head trying to figure out what's going on. So, if you can't make sense of this review, I blame Lisa Renee Jones, LOL. 

Amy is on the run but from what, we don't know. Something happened when she was younger that left her family dead and her in danger. But she doesn't know why she's in danger and we don't either. After receiving a note from her "handler", she must pick up and move with nothing but what her handler supplies for her. She meets Liam on the plane from New York to Colorado and there is and instant chemistry. Amy tries hard to distance herself but Liam won't let her. 

I liked the mystery surrounding Amy. I'm not sure who can be trusted. I liked Amy although, she seems to be very wishy washy for someone who has survived on the run for so long. I LOVED Jared! I can't wait to find out more about him! I liked Amy and Jared together more than Amy and Liam. Liam can be sweet, but he's too domineering for me. I'm sure there is more to him, but it seems he just wants to throw money at things. Amy doesn't like that and feels like a kept woman. I kept flashing to Pretty Woman in my head, LOL. Meg....she is just a complete enigma. Nothing is as it seems in this book. Who can be trusted, who is real? I'm even starting to wonder if there is a real danger or if this is some elaborate plan. But from who and what's the point? This book has really got me thinking! If you like a brain teaser mixed in with good characters and story line, you'll like this book!

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones is the author of the highly acclaimed INSIDE OUT TRILOGY which has sold to more than ten countries for translation with
negotiations in process for more, and has now been optioned by STARZ Network for a cable television show, to be produced by Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland).
Since beginning her publishing career in 2007, Lisa has published more than 30 books with publishers such as Simon and Schuster, Avon, Kensington, Harlequin, NAL, Berkley and Elloras Cave, as well as crafting a successful indie career. Booklist says that Jones suspense truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann.
Prior to publishing, Lisa owned multi-state staffing agency that was recognized many times by The Austin Business Journal and also praised by Dallas Women Magazine. In 1998 LRJ was listed as the #7 growing women owned business in Entrepreneur Magazine.
