The third installment in the sexy Inside Out erotic romance series—in the seductive tradition of Fifty Shades of Grey.

You’ve discovered Rebecca’s secrets. You’ve discovered Sara’s secrets. Now Sara will discover “his” deepest, darkest secrets…but will those secrets bind them together–or tear them apart?


Grade: A

I got this ARC and I rushed to read the other books in this series first so I could get a review of this book out around it’s release. It didn’t take long! I flew through the whole series, it’s so well written! I couldn’t put them down!

Lisa Renee Jones is just such a phenomenal writer. She puts so much heart and soul into her books, and it bleeds into her characters, which then affect the reader so strongly! I’m not a big romance reader, but Lisa’s books are phenomenal! They cover the romance genre just as good as any of the major big name players, but she weaves so much more into her stories then the traditional romance novel. There’s drama, there’s mystery. She keeps everyone interested with her beautiful writing style, and lush descriptions. I love the characters, Sara & Chris’s relationship is so complex and beautiful, steamy and passionate! They work so well together, and Chris is just so strong and sexy, and he’s love for Sara is so clear, real and touching, that this novel is the best one so far.

My favorite element in these books is the mystery! I love how much this adds to the book, and how it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! We found out what happened to Rebecca, and now Elle is missing and Sara is in jeopardy! It’s just one twist after another and you can’t put these books down! You get the steamy sex, the amazing writing and then an incredible mystery as well. It’s just too good to be true, and much better then Fifty Shades or Crossfire, because this book has so much more depth to it, so many more layers, and the plot just gives us so much more then just the sex, just the relationship. We are watching such realistic characters, fight their instincts and preferences to be together, as well as dealing with other drama, and trying to get the the bottom of the mystery. It’s perfect.

For me, a readers of very select romances, I love Lisa’s series! She does an amazing job of keeping up with top shelf romance but adding some additional layers to her plot to interest everyone!

This book is amazing, touching, suspenseful and exactly what you need to read!!! 🙂 I plan to go back and read all three again before the next one, as well as buy them all for my shelf! 🙂 This author, local to my city to boot, is amazing! She’s the next big name in romance!

Horror Author


Marie F Crow believes that monsters should keep you up at night with the thoughts of “what if” stalking your mind. She began writing horror after feeling the genre of zombie horror was getting too far away from actual horror, forgetting what a zombie is, and what that can mean to your world.

The recent advents of movies and literature have pushed the concept of the flesh eating undead too far into the realm of the mundane and cute. There is a need to once more rehash the genre with the proper respect to the psychological ramifications, and sheer horror, that the monsters deserve.

That sheer horror of possibly having to kill your friends, family, or anyone else for that matter before they become a shambling corpse willing, even driven, to consume the flesh of their own. The psychological destruction to the minds of the living their deaths could cause to those around them.

With the release of The Risen series, she hopes to, once again, breathe fear back into the genre that has always been a favorite of hers. Crafting her stories with honest emotions, and believable circumstances, she creates her world with an added twist to the classic monsters. She believes nothing is sacred in the land of horror inviting the reader to explore the depth of that concept by luring them deeper into her realm with visual images and emotional drama wrapped with a sparkling, gore dripping bow.

With open arms, she welcomes them back into the world of horror hoping they enjoy the ride, but requests they do keep all their limbs inside the ride at all times. The Risen are waiting, and they are hungry.

There’s supposed to be a plus after that A but my cool horror font didn’t want to allow that! 🙂

This is another amazing, A+ review for Marie F. Crow!


Another outstanding book by the author of The Risen: Dawning. Margaret’s story is a wonderful, and much needed, side story for those of us going through Marie F Crow withdrawal. I am dying, waiting for the next book, and this book was able to save me. This book brought me out of my dark, sad, lonely pit that I threw myself in after The Risen: Dawning ended. I wallowed but then got Margaret, and I’m so incredibly glad I did.

As negative review point out, this book is very detailed. So if you want a easy read, don’t want to actually have an amazing storyline that you’ll be tied up in, or really have to think at all. There’s zombie books for that, ones that don’t challenge to conceptions, don’t make you think. This isn’t that one. Crow challenges the zombie genre, she enflames it, she makes it better and brighter. She is perfect. I just reached the point before reading her first book that I was fed up with zombie stories. Everyone follows the same idea, and it just got to be too much. Crow doesn’t do that; Crow renewed my faith in this genre.

This book is incredibly well written, just like the earlier ones. It’s got such a strong concept; beautifully written and heartbreaking. It’s in the perspective of a 5 year old Kindergarten student.  There are comments about the ending, and yes, I will admit, I joined people. The ending is hard, prepare yourself, but Crow writes an amazing story, and doesn’t rely on gimmicks. This story ends how you’d expect it to end. That’s the thing about her writing. She’s not moving us to some world where the rules we’d see in real life has changed, and the cripple in the wheelchair can fend off the zombies easily. This book is how the zombie story would play out. It’s survival of the fittest, the strongest.  The people that may survive in the end are those that will be able to stay healthy the longest, fight the zombies off. It’s not for the young, the weak or the old.

As I’ve said in earlier reviews, I love Crow’s writing style. Crow finds a way to make a zombie massacre beautiful. She writes both the good and the bad same way. She makes the beautiful, tragic at times, but beautiful none the less. She gives us zombies to fear, people to love, and a storyline to sink our teeth into, and that could sink it’s teeth into us! Margaret is no exception. This little novella was amazing. It has all the right ups and downs and was a perfect companion novel to The Risen Dawning. Crow does an amazing job pulling us into the book, and taking us on this ride, but it doesn’t guarantee a happy ending, it doesn’t guarantee safety. You come on this ride knowing that you have no guarantees but you have an amazingly written story, amazing characters, and a very very good story.

You won’t regret picking up a single book by Marie F Crow, she’s an amazing writer, with a clear eye for story, and a whole lot of dedication to the genre. She knows how to write a story that will tie us up in. She’s definitely one to watch. Out of all the zombie novels I’ve read, or movies I’ve seen, no one gives us the perspective and detail that Marie F Crow does.

I can not wait to read the next one and see the other things coming from Marie F Crow in the future! 🙂
