If I Were You

Book: If I Were You
Series: Inside Out #1
Author: Lisa Renee Jones

Review: It's summer break and school teacher Sara needs some excitement in her life. When her neighbor leaves a journal at her apartment that she found in a storage unit, Sara cannot help reading it. She finds the author (Rebecca) and her sexual escapades intriguing. Convinced something sinister may have happened to Rebecca, Sara goes to the art gallery Rebecca worked at and quickly finds herself immersed in the elusive writer's life.

This book was a pleasant surprise. The premise was sexy with a mysterious flare (what happened to Rebecca?!).  Two males were introduced early and it wasn't clear who the primary love interest would be, which was fun. I also liked how the males tried to one up each other. The idea that Sara (the teacher) had enough art knowledge to work in a high end gallery was far fetched (although the author did provide an explanation) but I liked the art background because it made this unique. 

Overall, fun book with a cliffhanger. I'm excited to read the next one! 

Grade: 3.5 stars
