Book Review: Escaping Reality

Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, #1) by Lisa Renee Jones: 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 breathe? 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, the ghosts 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?

Lori's thoughts: While ultimately, I liked this book, I didn't really start enjoying it until the end. I've read far too many tales of some girl meeting some really hot billionaire and him changing his playboy, non-commitment style just for her after a chance meeting. I liked Liam, though. I also liked Amy. There is more about this story than meets the eye, and that's what makes me want to continue with the series. I want the same answers Amy is going after in the 2nd book. I don't necessarily even care if she winds up with Liam. I like the other story behind the Shades of Grey-esque written book. That's what makes me want more. So, I will definitely be reading book 2 soon.
