Starting at the time of Ava's release and just prior to her escape, "My Control" is yet another glimpse into the sexy, domineering man that is Mark Compton. Only Mark Compton is no longer in control. Mark is broken... he's becoming undone. The events surrounding Rebecca's death has shattered Mark to his core. He's unraveling... spiraling out of control... and Mark doesn't like losing control!

Beginning with "The Master Undone," then continuing on with "My Hunger," and now, "My Control," each Mark Compton novella is slowly leading us on a journey certain to expose the real man--the man who, for years, has been hiding behind the dominant persona that is Mark Compton.

"My Control" is a prelude to Mark's real story... a prelude to the full-length novel, "I Belong To You." It's a story that will (hopefully) reveal the past that Mark's so determined to run from--a past that keeps him in control at all times... that keeps other people at arms' length... that kept him from truly loving Rebecca.

Riddled with guilt over Rebecca's death, and tormented by his mother's illness, Mark is living each day in his own personal hell. It's hard not to feel sympathy towards Mark, since he seems truly repentant over his actions with Rebecca. He doubts himself and his actions. He questions every aspect of their relationship.

With the beach search and new evidence discovered, Mark gives into the pain and allows himself to grieve Rebecca's loss. The realization that Rebecca is lost to him forever--that she died never knowing how he really felt about her... that he'll never have the chance to tell her that he loved her--further fuels Mark's sorrow. The subsequent guilt he feels is all consuming. Rebecca returned to San Francisco because of him.

this is a ARC review .. Mark and Crystal are back they are still trying to find Rebecca's killer whom we read in the last book to be Ava but she restated that she never did kill Rebecca so question is who did ? or was it really Ava and Ryan whom wants Amanda who works at ALLURE .. and will Mark ever let his defenses down to let Crystal in .. and at the tail end there is a thought on a contract so does Crystal give up control or will Mark or will they both give up control to each other to find this and more out Pre-order this book at AND BUY IT TODAY

My Control is just further proof that Lisa Renee Jones can pack a wallop into a very short space. This book takes place after No In Between and follows Mark meeting up with Crystal again Of course, they come head to head and fight, but they also lust (or maybe love?) even more. Hands down, this is my favorite Mark POV books thus far in the INSIDE OUT series. Why? We FINALLY get Crystal's point of view! I have been dying to get into her head. And while, I've loved her from the get-go, if you haven't been swayed, I have a feeling you will. The sympathy she shows in regards to the elephant in the room is admirable, and the empathy she shows makes you wonder what her story is.

We also finally get that glimmer of controlling, domineering Mark in this installment. There are these two scenes that I read and I was actually giddy. Just imagine me bouncing in my seat saying "Yes! Bring the Master back!" The Master's there and he's definitely coming back out to play in the full-length book of Mark's story- I Belong to You (Nov. 2014). As for Crystal, her whole demeanor is something I love. I think she's good for Mark. She's not looking for sunshine and roses. She's painfully aware of the reality of their situation. But it doesn't stop either one of them from having a stall moment. They can feel the something more, but give the circumstances in San Francisco and New York they know it's not the time.

If this is just a glimpse of what we can expect from the next full-length book, then sign me up. I've been a fan of Mark's from the very first book, If I Were You, and he's stolen even more of my heart in the books between. I want nothing more than to get his happily ever after. From the looks of where My Control leaves off, that is going to be a long journey for both he and Crystal. But I can't wait!

Happy Reading!

In Control is another fascinating part of the Inside Out series by Lisa Renee Jones. Wow! We finally get some inside information on Mark Compton who has been a controlling master in this whole series. If you have been following this story you know about Rebecca. I think as more facts come out about what happened to Rebecca it shows us the deep feelings that Mark truly had for this woman. The mystery of her disappearance has brought out emotions in Mark we've never seen before. Crystal is a woman who is brought into Mark's life because of his mother's illness. Crystal starts to realize what kind of man Mark is. She has feelings for him, but she knows he's not in the state of mind to care about another woman at this point. However, she is determined to help Mark thru his pain. I have to say this is the first part of the series that I really started to care about Mark. Ms. Jones absolutely knows how to bring out the feelings of her characters. You must read this story as part of the Inside Out saga. It will show you a whole other side of Mark's character and the woman who may save him from the overwhelming pain he is feeling. Once again the author never disappoints her readers.
