About IF I WERE YOU…
How it began…
day I was a high school teacher on summer break, leading a relatively
uneventful but happy life. Or so I told myself. Later, I’d question
that, as I would question pretty much everything I knew about me, my
relationships, and my desires. It all began when my neighbor thrust a
key to a storage unit at me. She’d bought it to make extra money after
watching some storage auction show. Now she was on her way to the
airport to elope with a man she barely knew, and she needed me to clear
out the unit before the lease expires.
Soon, I was standing
inside a small room that held the intimate details of another woman’s
life, feeling uncomfortable, as if I was invading her privacy. Why had
she let these items so neatly packed, possessions that she clearly cared
about deeply, be lost at an auction? Driven to find out by some unnamed
force, I began to dig, to discover this woman’s life, and yes, read her
journals—-dark, erotic journals that I had no business reading. Once I
started, I couldn’t stop. I read on obsessively, living out fantasies
through her words that I’d never dare experience on my own, compelled by
the three men in her life, none of whom had names. I read onward until
the last terrifying dark entry left me certain that something had
happened to this woman. I had to find her and be sure she was okay.
long, I was taking her job for the summer at the art gallery, living
her life, and she was nowhere to be found. I was becoming someone I
didn’t know. I was becoming her.
The dark, passion it becomes…
I am working at a prestigious gallery, where I have always dreamed of
being, and I’ve been delivered to the doorstep of several men, all of
which I envision as one I’ve read about in the journal. But there is one
man that will call to me, that will awaken me in ways I never believed
possible. That man is the ruggedly sexy artist, Chris Merit, who wants
to paint me. He is rich and famous, and dark in ways I shouldn’t find
intriguing, but I do. I so do. I don’t understand why his dark
side appeals to me, but the attraction between us is rich with velvety
promises of satisfaction. Chris is dark, and so are his desires, but I
cannot turn away. He is damaged beneath his confident good looks and
need for control, and in some way, I feel he needs me. I need him.
All I know for certain is that he knows me like I don’t even know me, and he says I know him. Still, I keep asking myself — do I know him? Did he know her, the journal writer, and where is she? And why doesn’t it seem to matter anymore? There is just him and me, and the burn for more.
Oh my gosh. I almost dont even know what to say about this book other than you have to pick it up and read it as soon as possible. The ebook isnt out until Aug 24th. But you can order the paperback copy now from Amazon. I already knew I liked Lisa Renee Jones Zodius series. But I was not prepared to like this as much as those. You have your first favorite and it can be hard to find anything you like as much. But with this she has.
Its not just well written but its a great story as well. So many of us have watched Storage Wars and other shows with similar ideas. And really how many of us wouldnt read a diary we found in such a place. There is such a mystery involved. What happened to this woman, who seems to be such a success. Why has she gone completely missing for so long.
We are fascinated as we follow Sara as she tries to find out what happens to Rebecca. And we root for her as she tries to be a success in the same world as Rebecca disappeared from. We meet controlling gallery owners, jealous sales people, and sexy artists all along the way. What do all or any of these people know or have to do with what happened to Rebecca. And what will happen to Sara in this world she has entered.
We have it all in this story. Romance, mystery, suspense and wonderful characters. I cant wait to read Being Me and finding out what Sara discovers next.
