Word comes that Dylan isn't responding to meds as the doctors had hoped. They know his time is limited. Sara absolutely loves how Chris gives of himself to help others. What she can't foresee, why Chris has repeatedly tried to warn her away from him, is the melt down that will be Chris.
Mark is there to make sure she sees fully what/ who is Chris Merit when it happens. Will this be what completely destroys them both as a couple and individually
`Being Me' is a passionate, emotional ride and it left me fervently wanting more. I could not put this book down! I had a roller coaster of emotions, one moment I was so happy that finally Sara stopped running and putting walls up the next I was yelling in my head at her to STOP.....
So many of the questions from 'If I Were You,' Rebecca's journals and this book are uncovered. I did not know if they would be answered in this book and then BAM, questions are answered. By the end `Being Me', there is a whole new set of questions we are left with and I hope Sara gets the happily ever after she deserves!
The beginning of the book started where 'If I Were You' ended... in the dark storage unit. That drama is resolved in this book and it is not what I expected at all! I was completely SHOCKED by this turn of events that was uncovered by Blake Walker! Thank you Chris for having sexy friends!*
Sara finally, admitted all her demons to Chris and stood up for herself to Mark. Her strength in this book is AMAZING! And Chris... The guy needs to cut himself some slack and allow himself to be loved by an amazing women that loves him. He is an amazing man. Giving tons of money for his cancer charity. I just want to hug his pain away and I think Sara does too, but will she every fully listen to Chris?!?!
We find out about Rebecca, her "Master's" identity, and what has happened with her. A lot of information on Mark is revealed and he is so honest with Sara when she finally gets the "balls" to ask him questions that she wants answered. Will Sara asking these questions and running to Mark lead her to the same place where Rebecca is? I really do not know how I feel about Mark. Ugh! He can be so nice one moment and so rude the next. Alpha men!!
Even though a lot of the questions from `If I Were You' have answers, I believe there will a lot more questions that will come from those answers. I think these answers are just the tip of the iceberg!
There is HUGE revelations about Chris and Sara's relationship and this is where this book ends. If 'Revealing Us' is anything like this one, it is going to be on fire! I guess we will see what Sara decides to do in the next book. I honestly think she is done letting her past dictate her life and she will go after what she wants. ~ Just my two cents!
I absolutely LOVE this quote from Sara, "I've always known we were two puzzle pieces that fit together in a hollow that is our pain. There was a time when I was certain we were too damaged not to destroy each other. Now I think we are saving each other." ~Lisa Renee Jones, Being Me
I hope those feelings carry over.... I am ready for Revealing Us! September is so far away! There is soooo much I want to say but I WILL NOT ruin it for anyone. I would buy this book IMMEDIATELY if you haven't already!!

We resume right where we left off in the last book which means that terrible cliff hanger was resolved. THANK GOODNESS! We see a lot of plot movement in book two and development between characters. Most of the narrative actually revolves around revealing more about Chris and Sara in the best of ways. We knew Sara had something from her past haunting her and that is revealed in this book same goes for Chris. Which was essential for me to feel satisfied. Also you aren't left on such a big cliffhanger this time instead the ending is a major payoff to someone who is invested in this story.
The things I loved about this book are numerous so I'm going to try and keep it short. Obviously the huge character development stuff that happens between Chris and Sara was amazing. I also died laughing during some portions of the book including a gummi bear joke which put the biggest grin on my face. Another thing is I liked that this book took some of the focus off Rebecca and instead on development of the characters. Including characters that I think deserve more attention like Mark Compton. One reveal at the end left me with my mouth hanging open because I honestly did not expect it at all. Keeping me on my toes when reading this series is a huge plus.
Dislikes? I really dislike how finicky Sara can be as a character. I also don't get why she hide her secret so much I'm not sure I would have done the same in her shoes is all. I find some of the situations she gets into a little contrived but overall they end up adding to the story so I guess it's okay in the end.
Overall I have a hard time really knocking off anything for my dislikes in this book becuase I just love this series. Lisa Renee Jones really knows how to write a good series that keeps you wanting more and that is not an easy thing to do. 5/5 stars for me and I highly recommend it if you enjoyed the first book.

While it answered a lot of ???s we had been left with at the end of 'IIWY', 'Being Me' left us with yet more questions and things to ponder.....
I loved the development of the relationship between Chris & Sara. Saw a different side to Mark - gods, can't believe it, but my thoughts about him are mellowing!!! Who'd have thought?!?!
Was good to finally find out what was going on with Rebecca and who her Master was...
New characters were introduced and surprises a plenty were thrown at us..
Lisa really loves a cliff-hanger and while this wasn't as sudden and shocking an ending as IIWY, we were still left reeling at the end of Being Me.....
Can't wait for 'Revealing Us' to see what happens with Sara & Chris and how things work out after all that happened in this story!!!
The characters were more fully formed although the air still cracked with regularity!
However we must wait until the third book before we discover whether they make it through Chris' deepest darkest secrets. If only there were really men like this that fell for women like us!
Definit get if you're looking for something exciting, thrilling and with love.
I did enjoy the book, but I think I am a sucker for reading about people's emotional drama. I do like Chris and for the most part Sara. I find the sexual chemistry between the two of them just a little too unbelievable, like so many books in this genre.
Some parts of the book were definitely underwhelming. The big reveals seemed completely predictable and just not that 'big'. Much of the book could have been skipped and the book would have been just as enjoyable-like some of the sex scenes, for example.
I liked Mark in this book. I am disappointed that the trilogy is way longer than a trilogy, and it does not look like there is an end in sight.
All said-I am enjoying the 'trilogy' so far. At least there is a story line.
Chris has tattoos. He has a dragon tattoo. Did I mention Chris has tattoos? If you like being told something far more frequently than is necessary, you will like this book. Chris has tattoos. Some of them are colourful. Oh, and Sara’s eyes are brown.
Another “drag the story out” book. I realise the intention is to milk as much money out of the readers as possible but in doing so the Author/Publisher runs the risk that the reader will be offended and stop caring about the characters. I fall into this category.
