Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen #1) by Lisa Renee Jones has Infinite possibilities… Infinite passion… Infinite danger… and was oh-so delicious.
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?
This book starts off immediately in the midst of action and tension. It's definitely not your average New Adult read. Instead, it has more of an edginess to it. It's compelling, gripping and nail biting. And at the same time, it's sexy, sensual and romantic. There was never a moment when I knew exactly what the truth was. I spent the entire time reading and hopelessly attempting to solve the mystery. It was absolutely so tightly written that I couldn't figure it out. How great is that... especially since I've read hundreds and hundreds of romance books!
I cannot wait for the next installment to find out what happens for this couple. They're solid characters, each so inherently good (Shoot, or maybe not. Well, I have a little doubt after that final scene.) that I'm cheering them on towards their HEA. This book was magnificent!
Do not miss reading this book. Go, now, and BUY IT!
