"The secret life of Rebecca and the men who have seduced her."

The first in Lisa Renee Jones' five part series attached to THE INSIDE OUT TRILOGY. These are the journals written by Rebecca and the ones Sara never sees.

Since finishing the first book in this series, If I Were You, I've been dying to know more about Rebecca. Here, we get more insight into the men in her life along with her hopes, dreams and fears.

I can hardly wait for more!

The first nouvella in Rebecca's Journals. The story goes alongside Inside Out Trilogy but I made the mistake of reading this after Being Me (book 2). Written in diary format in Rebecca's words, we gain insight into this mysterious character within this trilogy. Events take place prior to Inside Out trilogy......

This is the diary of Rebecca, 22-years old, working at a restaurant to survive but dreams of working at Allure Art Gallery. She needs to pay her bills and working in a gallery won't do i
I do so love it when a book heroine has my name. I can completely imagine the hero fixing me with that silvery gray gaze as my name, Rebecca, whispers over those highly kissable lips.

He returned his gaze to mine and softly said my name. Just “Rebecca,” but it was all soft and rough at the same time, and I melted into a big puddle right there in front of him.

Oh yes!! This Rebecca is in a puddle at that man’s feet right with book Rebecca! Le sigh!!

This is quite simply delicious. Rebecca’s feelin

This is a real short read which is written in journal form. Although this novella contains dates and entries I expected more.

A journal to me contains the writers inner most thoughts. I didn't find that here. The entries went from meeting her boss with the all intrigue and attraction to the next entry of Rebecca stating that he proposed a master/slave relationship and left out how he asked, when, where, etc. I think in leaving out this important piece information out I felt gypped. Some entries
"He only has control because you give it to him. Don't ever forget that."

What a great insight to how the story of If I Were You begins. I am intrigued and will be finishing all of the journals...TONIGHT! I just have to have the background before diving into the next Inside Out book.

I love how it's written in journal form and it really does feel like she spills her thoughts on the pages...even the little mundane things are interesting.

Rebecca is intrigued by this man and despite her lack of know

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this first Volume of Rebecca's Lost Journals. It was a quick, mysterious and sexy read that frustrated me like crazy because we are still no closer to knowing who the mysterious man in the journals is! It was very interesting to see the similarities between Rebecca and Sara. I'm excited to have all of these smexy little journals to keep me coming until Being Me comes out!!

"This novella gave me a dose of satisfaction to tie me over for the next installment of Inside Out Trilogy." ~Under The Covers Book Blog

I instantly became a fan of Ms. Jones since reading If I Were You last year. And since then, I have been waiting for anykind of read that is related to this series. This novella gave me a dose of satisfaction to tie me over for the next installment of Inside Out Trilogy.

A teasing, very short, hot and mysterious read that any erotic romance reader will fully enjoy!

Rebecca’s Lost Journals Volume 1 gives us the beginning of back ground information that leads to Lisa Renee Jones’s Inside out Trilogy. We get introduced to the real life of the mysterious Rebecca, her introduction to being a submissive, her real life experience, jobs and her Master all direct from Rebecca herself instead of being told by another (as it is in the Inside Out Trilogy).

The Seduction was such a great novella companion to go with If I Were You; I still can’t get it out of my head! It was just as the name implies; the story of Rebecca’s seduction with the mysterious man from her journals. I wasn’t sure I would be interested in the actual journal entries of Rebecca because I was wrapped up in Sara’s story but I was WRONG! These were journal entries that Sara wasn’t privilege to so we got inside information to Rebecca’s mysterious story, if only they didn’t leave m ...more

This is super, super short. 40 pages, I believe. I think it must be some kind of marketing thing for Lisa Renee Jones new series, the Inside Out Trilogy. Either way, if you're going to purchase this novella, do yourself a big favor and purchase at least all 4 of these novellas (there are a total of 5).

You're going to get this little taste of the story and I promise you: You'll want NEED more!

Rebecca's Lost Journals started out with a bang! Man oh man do I love this series and the journals adds more excitement to it. When I read If I Were You I was so caught up in the book and the story that I stayed up all night reading. I had so many questions after reading it that my head was spinning. I said dang I need to get some background info on Rebecca. I needed to know what was going on why had she disappeared? Where did she go? What the hell happened to her? Was she hurt?

For anyone that has read If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones this series of Lost Journals are for you. If I Were You is the first book in a erotic romantic suspense trilogy. The Inside Out trilogy begins with the heroine, Sara, gaining possession of Rebecca’s journal. This journal was discovered by a friend who won Rebecca’s unpaid storage locker. The journal is filled with some very disturbing, yet erotic pages and it prompts Sara to find Rebecca and return to her the items of her storag

So this is a quick novella from the world of the Inside Out Trilogy and leave to Lisa Renee Jones to get you all riled up with the OMG who is it. I thought for sure with these journals that it would start to be obvious of who the mystery man is but NOPE we are still completely in the dark about it.

I think these journals are a fan-friggin-tastic idea to keep us immersed in the story and have more background of Rebecca. My fingers are crossed that Chr

We were lucky enough to get a sneak peak at volume one of Rebecca's Lost Journals: The Seduction, out on January 28th, which Lisa Renee Jones is writing to accompany her Inside Out Trilogy.

Rebecca's Lost Journals: The Seduction is basically the prequel to If I Were You, Book 1 of the Inside Out Trilogy. You MUST read If I Were You in case you missed it. It is in our Top 10 Books of 2012. it is the story of Sara who finds and reads the secret journals of Rebecca who has left them abandoned in a

I read this series ALL out of order and actually started with Rebecca's Lost Journals and THIS made me go back and read the Inside Out series books 1-3. Reviews to come at I really enjoyed the suspense of this series and am late to the party on this one, which many bloggers have recommended.

Because this is somewhat of a romantic suspense series with a touch of BDSM it does have some frustration in that you don't get definitive answers, but with book 4 coming in August and the
This is exactly what I'd hoped for! We see Rebecca's entrance into the BDSM lifestyle Sara is just getting a hint of by the end of If I Were You. And it gives us more of the world we've been missing while we wait for Being Me, including those gorgeously hot men Chris and Mark, and adds some details we can only learn from Rebecca herself. We don't get a whole lot of answers yet, but there are some clues thrown in there if you are paying attention. Rebecca's Lost Journals, Volume One: The Seductio ...more
This short novella is the start of Rebecca's journey. The chance encounter that resulted in a job at the gallery and the introduction of four men. But still no clear answer as to who "Master" is.

The similarities between the feelings Rebecca expresses and Sara's feelings are chilling. It's like these men all see Rebecca when they see Sara. A great addition to the series and insight into the mystery that is Rebecca. Although I doubt any great reveal will happen and let it slip just who Master is,
Great to finally get to read the journal's that started it all.
I enjoyed this short story. It is actually written in diary format and gives us an idea of the type of person Rebecca was, how she came to work at the gallery, and how her relationship with Master came to be...we still have no idea who he is though!! Recommended :)
5 Stars. Excellent companion novella to the Inside Out Trilogy set in the style of a journal in which daily entries include clues as to what happened to the missing Rebecca.

Rebecca's Lost Journals

After reading If I Were You and Being Me, I dove right into Rebecca's Lost Journals. I couldn't wait to see things from the point of view of our missing and partially leading lady. I was so engrossed in watching her evolve and change into a different person. My heart went out to her with all the conflict she felt and decisions she grew to realize she had to make within herself and her relationship with "Master". This was a perfect reading experience to understand what made

This is what started it all, the whole Inside Out series, these journals. Each volume gets more intense. The first one, The Seduction, we see Rebecca and Mark and how it all started. The second one, The Contract, we see how Rebecca deals with the BDSM contract and how she feels. The third one, His Submissive, this one is HOT and we see how Rebecca is doing with her choices and how far she wants/will go. The four

If you haven’t yet read If I Were You by Lisa Renee Jones – you should. It’s the first book in a trilogy staring Sara McMillan, a storage locker, and a dark and seductive journal. And it is so full of mystery and danger and romance that you’ll devour it in one night! I stayed up till 2a to finish it. Could. Not. Put. It. Down! Miz Jones does seductive suspense like no other! There are so many twists and turns that will keep you guessing – and on the edge of your seat.

“Rebecca’s Lost Journals, Volume 1: The Seduction” by Lisa Renee Jones is a novella that details some of the journal entries that led the heroine of her ‘Inside Out’ trilogy to embark on her own journey of exploration and self-discovery. This is an eerie mirroring of the experiences that the heroine of “If I Were You” undergoes even as it provides a different view of several of the main characters from that tale.

Have you read first book in the INSIDE OUT trilogy, IF I WERE YOU? If so, then the short series of journals might provide just enough to get you through your withdrawals while you wait for the second book in the trilogy, BEING YOU to debut. If you haven’t read IF I WERE YOU, then do yourself a favor and read it before you read Rebecca’s lost journals – it will definitely enhance your reading experience while reading the journal novellas.
