Book Review: Revealing Us by Lisa Renee Jones

Revealing Us (Inside Out, #3)Revealing Us (Inside Out #3) by 
3 stars
Revealing Us is the last of the Inside Out Trilogy by Lisa Renee Jones. When the book opens, Sara has a decision to make-go to Paris with Chris, or stay in San Francisco to make her own way. She quickly decides she must be with Chris, and the Parisian leg of the trilogy begins.

In the second book, Sara was infected with TSTL (Too Stupid to Live) symptoms, and this time around, it was a chronic condition. She got herself into at least 3 unnecessary scrapes that Chris had to get her out of, and she blamed him for her stupidity. Once she even called herself out on her own stupidity. It was infuriating. Her neurosis caused whiplash-she even called herself out on that, too!

Besides these criminal lapses in judgement, we learn a lot about Chris in this book, and about the secrets he keeps in Paris. Ultimately, *SPOILER* Rebecca and Ella's situations aren't resolved, and that was unfortunate for Rebecca because it appears she has been murdered, and for Ella because it appears she is caught in someone's crosshairs. It looks like Ella may be getting her own book and she certainly has a champion in the rich and enigmatic Garner Nueville - apparently they had quite the 3 weeks together.

I appreciated how Chris and Sara had a dynamic that was not typical-they suffered a lot of loss in their lives and decided they didn't want children in the future. Chantel was a bright light in the book as well, and she certainly had eyes for Rey, the security specialist. Overall, the book was a page turner, sometimes for the wrong reasons, but the chemistry between Chris and Sara was hot and ultimately believable. They learned from each other, and through all the ups and downs eventually solidified their relationship. The biggest question at this point is this: Will I continue on to Ella's adventures? I'm not sure.
