If you have not read Being Me, DO NOT read this review is contains major spoilers!!!
Let me first start of my clarifying that this is a novella it is NOT a journal the only journals are Rebecca's four journals that were release prior to Being Me.
One of the things I loved about this novella was that it picked up right after the end of Being Me not sometime in the past or sometime way into the future. Mark has been dealing with a lot lately and he is starting to come undone. He flies out to New York when he discovers his mother has stage 3 breast cancer and needs to be by her side. What surprises Mark is that his ride from the airport is a gallery employee by the name of Crystal. Right away she's testing his control she doesn't want to be told what to do and isn't having it when Mark tells her what she should and shouldn't do. Still reeling from the loss of Rebecca from the hands of another submissive he's slowly starting to lose his well maintained control and you watch him start to unravel very slowly. He's hurting and it doesn't help matters that Rebecca was the closest thing he ever had to actually loving a woman and it's hard to watch because as much as he likes to pretend nothing is wrong he feels partly responsible for her death.
His feelings toward Crystal start to grow and as much as he wants to try to ignore the sexual tension between them it soon becomes too much. She says it's only sex and changes nothing but I feel to the both of them it's so much more and you'll watch as he slowly starts to lose his control it's interesting to see this side of Mark because he's always some calm, cool, collected and in control of everything. Which leads me to wanting to learn so much more about Mark and especially Crystal. How much does Crystal know about Mark? Does their relationship turn into more? This was a great addition to the series and I cannot wait to find out what happens in the future! Lisa has created another wonderful addition to this series and I absolutely loved it, 5 stars!
***Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review***
Mark Compton has had 2 major blows in his life in the last 24 hours. First he found out that his submissive, and someone he allowed himself to get really close to, was killed at the hands of her replacement. And now, he's just been told that his mother has stage 3 breast cancer and needs a double mastectomy. With his personal life in turmoil, Mark will discover a feisty, independent female, a woman whom his mother respects and trusts, in the guise of one Crystal Smith.
Good intentions are all very well in theory; reality is often very different. When Mark meets Crystal Smith who works for Riptide in New York he finds himself dealing with reactions and emotions that are quite new to him.
Crystal Smith is the complete opposite of the sort of woman Mark usually finds himself attracted to; blond, assertive, independent and without a submissive bone in her body, she shouldn't affect him at all. And yet:
"She's everything I don't like in a woman, and yet I can't take my eyes of her."
Chris has also spoken to Mark and let him know that he "Would walk through Hell with him right now" as he deals with his mother's illness. Will this help start to mend the rift between two friends. Will Mark learn to relinquish the tight control he has to have over everyone. This book helps you to realize that Mark is human after all. I can NOT wait for Revealing Us as after that it is my understanding that Mark will have his full length story. I am very much looking forward to that.

I received an ARC copy of this book from Pocket in exchange of an honest review.
Connection to The Inside Out Trilogy that has recently been optioned to STARZ for TV with Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland w/Johnny Depp) producing and includes exciting clues for the series readers but stands alone as its own exciting erotic story.
I've read both books and the journals released in between, but this 'short' was such an intriguing read to me. Mark is the man in control and how much be in control... in 'all' situations, but then along comes Crystal (I love this character)
She is also a type A, controlling type woman, and you left wondering if Mark may have met his match.
I've always wondered what it would be like for one of these types of men we read about so much if they were met with a similar type of woman...Crystal may just be that woman.
If you haven't read the Inside Out series, I highly recommend it, and the journals in between truly enhance the story.The Master Undone: An Inside Out Novella
