Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones



I was instantly captivated within the first few pages of this book. There was a thrill and a sense of action and mystery. Amy is in a public bathroom stall after getting an envelope from her handler telling her to run and ditch everything. She has been found and needs to get to the airport. Part of me wondered if there was some paranormal plot within due to the flashbacks she was having. It left me wondering if she was being transported somewhere. Amy heads to the airport and retrieves her next set of instructions from a locker and heads to the departure gates. Once there she makes eye contact with a sexy mysterious man. Well low and behold he sits next to her on the plane. My interest and intrigue lasted during the flight. Did he just drug her? Is he a good guy or bad guy? I was still invested but it didn’t last long. They make it to her new apartment and whatta ya know. Sex. They have sex. Did I mention at this point we are 50% into the book? Sigh.

This is where you lost me. Liam takes over everything moves her to his hotel across the street and pretty much buys her everything. Cause when you’re on the run from (still unknown to the reader…bad guys? Villains? Bullies? Heck we have no idea what she is running from and we aren’t getting any answers either)You have to stop for hallway sex right?

The job her “handler” has set up is nonexistent. The secretary is so transparent we can see she is suspect from the get go and the drool worthy neighbor? She feels a draw and a pull towards him but that too is confusing.

There are a lot of dominant sex scenes. They are steamy but toward the end I found myself skim reading. We are also left with a cliff hanger and I HATE cliffhangers.

So for me it just took too long not getting to a point and the insta love/sex/connection always bothers me.

Started strong but finished flat

Infinite possibilities….
Infinite passion…..
Infinite danger….

His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.


At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard down, the ghost’s of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.

On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?
