From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, an Inside Out series e-short told from Mark’s point of view, as he battles his all-consuming desire for Crystal.
I am a Master, all about control, and yet right now, facing great tragedy, I feel as if I have none. I find sanctuary in the one place I've promised I will never be again, but cannot seem to resist. Her arms.
I feel her hunger, taste her passion, as if this is her escape, too, as if she is running from something I do not know, burying it in this kiss. It calls to me, drives me to want more, tells me she does know loneliness. She knows pain and it is that pain that is bringing us here, to this moment. It's why me as Master and her as submissive do not matter. Why I crave every touch, every stroke of her tongue.
Oh I am loving finding out more about Mark Compton! I admit once again that I really did not like him in the series until his first novella came out and we got inside his head. This gave us even more of his thoughts and feelings....feelings he fights so hard not to have. Love this! Really cannot wait to see where the series takes Mark.
Review: Inside Out #3.2: My Hunger
My Hunger by Lisa Renee Jones is a novella in her phenomenal Inside Out series. This short tale is about Mark, the gallery owner and Crystal, an employee of the Riptide gallery in New York.
We met Mark when Sara did and he was charming, charismatic and intimidating. more so once we learned of his ownership of the BDSM club and his role in Rebecca's lives through the diaries Sara found.
The Mark we see in this story is a different man. Heartbroken over Rebecca's murder at Ava's hands and worried about his mother and her recent cancer diagnosis and surgery, he is losing himself and who he's had to be for the past decade. Crystal is NOT a submissive woman by any means and yet there is a draw to her he cannot resist.
This is a phenomenal series and this novella was a perfect insight into Mark's mindset and motivations.
"Mother of all Cliffhanger's"
"Tie a rope around me, because I'm hanging by a thread from this cliffhanger!"
WOW...Mark's POV! This series drew me in from the beginning and the pull just keeps getting stronger & stronger! Ms. Jones continues to amaze me with her wit and her ability to weave a story into the readers mind like no other!
The control Mark loves so much to have but without it, he doesn't seem to know how to handle himself. However, Crystal seems to center him in a way that he can't or doesn't know how to accept. And she doesn't even realize that the control, "his control", is now in her hands! Will they be able to control their "out of control" feelings for one another and survive the hell that is upon them!?
Thank you Lisa Renee Jones for this riveting story, I can't wait to find out what you have in store for us in your next book...No In Between!
