Blurb by Goodreads

The sexy second installment in the Inside Out erotic romance trilogy, following If I Were You—in the seductive tradition of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fascinated by the dark fantasies in the journals she’s discovered, and the two men who have now found a place in her life, Sara McMillan finds herself torn between her new life and her past. Now, more than ever, Sara identifies with the lost journal writer, Rebecca, and is certain that something sinister has happened.

In the arms of the sexy, tormented artist Chris Merit, Sara seeks answers about Rebecca and ends up discovering things about herself she never knew existed. Chris forces Sara to reconsider who she is and what she truly wants from life, but not before his dark desires threaten to tear them apart. Her boss, Mark Compton, offers her the shelter to understand just what those needs mean to her, and what they might have meant to Rebecca, but can she trust him to lead her to a final conclusion to Rebecca’s story?

One of the things I loved about Chris and Sara in If I Were You (Inside Out Trilogy #1) was their sexual tension. Have to say was not always feeling it in Being Me. They are a couple now or more less Chris believes she is his and Sara still on the defense side of belonging to anybody.

What I loved about Being Me is the darker side of the sexy sporting tattoo, biker riding, famous artist Chris. Certain events and some of Sara actions have brought the darker side of Chris out. He keeps her at an emotional distance and does not want her a part of his dark life. Only the new life he has created with her. She needs all of him the good and bad. 

Sara has a thing about being controlled by others because of her past with an over controlling father.  She can not tell the difference when Chris tries to protect her as she takes it as controlling her. This leaves to a lot of ups and down for them, but unfortunately was not feeling any kind of emotions from them.

Finally got to know what happened to Rebecca, what happened between Mark and Chris that ruined their friendship. Being Me is more on the relationship of ups and downs with Chris and Sara. The mystery part to finding Rebecca was a hit and miss throughout the novel then bang got some answers. Now there is another mystery added as to what happened to her friend.

 I look forward to finding out more about Chris and his dark side in Revealing Us.
