From the Author

The next "it" book. If I Were You just barely scratches the surface of what I know is to come. It was word lubricant getting me primed and ready for something big, something huge!!! Something thrilling! You don't know if you want to scream, YES...NO...NOW! It blurs the line, seduces the soul, and leaves you begging for more! READ ON! --Reviewed at Tough Critic Book Reviews

The story puts the reader in the role of a voyeur, a spy or of a curious anxious to know at what sauce it will be eaten. The ending gives you gooseflesh. You have only one idea: get your hands on more ...

After being teased by the first chapter a month or two ago, I was extremely excited and anxious to finally be able to read this book. I was not disappointed at all! Author Lisa Renee Jones has managed to create a book that is not only a well written and engaging story, but does double duty as a super-hot and sexy romance novel as well. A great feat indeed! It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of her previous work, but If I Were You is, by far, my favorite of hers to date. I just loved it! From page one, it grabs your attention with an interesting and suspenseful storyline and in-your-face sexuality. I could not put it down! I was vacationing in Ireland when I read it, and I found myself wanting to stay in bed and read instead of going out to sight see. It's been compared to Fifty Shades of Grey with good reason - damaged and super-possessive male introduces (somewhat) innocent female into a whole new world beyond her imagination. He's super possessive and super protective (swoon!) and the sex is oh-so-very hot, and I have the feeling it's just going to get hotter in the upcoming books. For those tentative readers who are shying away from the BDSM books, this one would be a good one to start with because it's introduced and discussed without being overly graphic (yet?). I loved the mystery aspect and storage wars theme, and I learned a little about both art and wine while reading it - what more could you ask for in a book?! After having only read book one of a planned trilogy, I already can tell I'm going to like this series even more than the Fifty Shades one. I cannot wait for book two!

I received a copy of this book from the author through NetGalley.

Right, so this book is being described as Fifty Shades meets Basic Instinct. Well, I didn't get that at all. Yes there were issues that were of similar nature to Fifty Shades, if anything, at times there were a few similarities to Bared to You. However, in no way did I read this story and think hang on, this is a rip off. These issues of similarities were few and far between and not enough to compare. Perhaps the Basic Instinct comparison becomes apparent in book 2 or 3?

The story was quite unique and had more than one story line running through it. It actually had just about everything you would want in a great book. It had drama, heart break, yummy sexy romance, mystery and tormented characters. It was dark and thrilling and I couldn't put it down, the mystery of it making me want to know more; yeah, I loved it!!! I think this series will be a winner!! If you; like me, enjoy books with passion, dark alpha males and intense intrigue you will love this story!
As with all series, the first book can act as the ultimate teaser, this one is no exception. It had me consumed with its intensity, passion and depth. I was sold right from the start and eagerly await book two as yes there's a cliff hanger but then again all the great series have one of these right?!

If I Were You has two very sexy domineering alpha males, I was drawn to both of them but have a clear favourite (at the moment). One we got to know a little bit, one not so much, he is still a mystery that I cannot wait to uncover (yes I really said that ;0)
This story is written in Sara's POV. Now, I found Sara to be quite intense, perhaps it was the inner dialogue which made me feel like I was in her head a lot of the time. A very emotional place to be for sure.

IF I WERE YOU by Lisa Renee Jones to me feels more like Fifty Shades of Grey than Basic Instinct. Sara McMillan reminded me of Anastasia Steele in that she's meek, introverted, smart, a tad insecure and a minx between the sheets. The men linked to her are rich, irresistible and charmingly dangerous it's hard to stay immune to them as they slowly woo Sara into their dark and seductive world. As far as book one of LRJones' new series is concerned, it still straddles the lines of contemporary romance and erotica, kink is non existent but it reared it's ugly head by the end of the story. In a nutshell, IF I WERE YOU is a story about romance and dangerous liaisons that kept me flipping the pages because of the heat, urgency and mystery that Lisa Renee Jones wove together easily.

Throughout IF I WERE YOU I liked Sara enough to keep on reading, it is after I've mulled over the story that I realized she grew on me and I feel for her the way she feels for Rebecca: fascinated and protective. Sara's intuitive, sincere, a little naive but at the same time she's also impulsive and has a little wicked gleam in her eye if you look closely. The recent turn of events had her succumbing to her whims over rationality, she sees the warning signs in neon color and shouty capitals but instead of perceiving it as dangerous, she looks at it as something new and exciting. And even is Sara's back story is not as messed up as Eva Trammel's I still found myself worried over her, Sara has daddy issues and her last relationship was far from blissful so the last thing I want for her is stumbling into a relationship that will surely leave her broken and bruised. Literally and figuratively.

But the real clincher is this whole business with Rebecca Mason.
