"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 d

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 fee

I'm returning to the Inside Out world with Riptide and Mark Compton in a new seductive erotic mystery: THE BRILLIANCE TRILOGY! Readers will be able to read this series without having read the Inside Out series, but if you've missed Mark, Chris, and Sara, you will be seeing a lot of them in this trilogy!

It all started with a note, just a simple note hand written by a woman I didn't know, never even met. But in that note is perhaps every answer to every question I've ever had in my l

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).

"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.

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!! ...more

"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.

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? And most importa ...more

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.

This was a really short story about Rebecca meeting Mark, and how much she wanted him as soon as she met him. The sex was pretty damn hot too!

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

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!

When I first read, If I Were You, I was unaware that there were journals. I mean they’re mentioned in the book, but the author actually wrote out the journals in three short story lengths. I got the privilege of reading the first two, but I’m dying to get my hands on the last one.

When you first read, If I Were You, you’re whipped into the after effects of a woman named Rebecca. Small snippe
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

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.

These journals are companion pieces to the Inside Out trilogy but can stand along just as well.

In them you get to meet Rebecca, the girl whose diaries so captivate Sara in If I Were You. Through her actual diary entries we get to see how she struggled as a waitress and dreamed of working with art. In this first volume we get to see how she is starting and struggling to follow her dreams while meeting all these interesting characters that all have secrets. We witness her first introduction to "Th

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

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
These journals were short, but super hot and an awesome insight into things we only skimmed in If I Were you. They definitely whetted my appetite and made me eager to jump right into Being Me. The intrigue surrounding Rebecca and her disappearance is so awesome. Getting bits and pieces of her through her journals in the full length novels is great, but I really loved these lost journals. I loved reliving her experiences and comparing them to Sara's. I was fairly sure I knew who her Mast was, but ...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,

I loved this book. Read it in 1 day. Lisa Renee Jones certainly didn't disappoint!!! I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen! And it was easy for me to feel invested in these characters. I won't put any spoilers in my review because I don't like that myself.

If you're thinking you're going to read this and possibly be closer to figuring out what the hell is going on, don't count on it. Rebecca's encounters are eerily similar to Sara's but the feelings she associates with the men and some other characters are fairly different. I still have no clue what's going on and it's kinda freakin awesome. ...more
