Escaping Reality - Lisa Renee Jones

If you're looking for a book that's hot and spicy, 'Escaping Reality' has huge lashings of it. From suspense to erotically enticing scenes, this book steams you up in more ways than one.


Amy is running from a post that she doesn't appear to remember. She's brave, sassy, but caves in to her obvious desire for Liam. And, to be honest, who could blame her. She's a likable character who has flaws. She trusts too easily and is emotionally soft.


And Liam,


Liam is the type of character that you wouldn't mind doing things for, if he requested it, including licking his tattoo. Haha, some of you may be saying, 'not in a million years', but I would (just saying). He appealed to me because although he was possessive and did have moments when I thought he had reverted back into a caveman, I still loved him. He had an awful past that I think I've only seen a glimpse of, but he wasn't vigilante, even if there were times I wanted to slap him about the head and tell him not to be so bossy.


That edge of violence that I've read in some books wasn't there. Well, I haven't read anything like that in this first book. Despite what a lot of people may think, being around someone who hits is not romantic. It can be terrifying, sickening and as uncomfortable as hell (I speak from experience) regardless of the reason why it occurred in the first place. Yeah, and he definitely has Dominant traits and he has secrets.


Anyway, I really liked the writing style of this book. I wouldn't say that the book was action-packed, but there was enough going on to keep me highly entertained. I did have a bit of a problem though. It was a bit of a stretch to say this was New Adult. The main characters were 31 and 24. It was borderline adult. New Adult to me means that ALL the main characters are late teen or early twenties. Amy was New Adult (barely), but Liam was an adult and there's no getting away from that.


For those of you looking for a clean New Adult book to read, sadly this book won't be for you. It is a light read though and has a touch of mystery to hook you into Amy and Liam's story. Although 'frustrated' could be a key word for those of you who want to know everything by the end of the book. Luckily, I'm one of those readers who like mystery and cliffhangers as long as it is executed well.I would recommend this book to anyone who likes general fiction and doesn't mind erotically charged scenes.


Now for my rating:-three out of five stars.
