For the love of everything awesome in the world, you need to read this book!!! Don’t tell my husband, but I’m going to pack my bags and move to the reality that Liam Stone lives in. He is seriously off the charts bossy-hot! Yes, I just made the word up but it fits him so I’m adding that to my Jen dictionary. Escaping Reality is panty-melting hot, with a huge dose of angst and turmoil. I loved every second of it. If I wasn’t feeling Amy’s pain and grief, I was caught up in her connection to Liam. There wasn’t a moment where I wasn’t captivated by their story. And their love scenes… Holy moly! Get the fire extinguisher ready! I look for a few things when I’m reviewing a book. Did it keep me up past bedtime? Did I have a physical reaction to the story? Do I want to shout from the rooftops about how good it is? Escaping Reality hit all those for me! It took me an hour after finishing the book to calm myself down enough to be able to sleep.
Amy Benson is alone. Even in a room full of people. She is running from something we really don’t know, and the mystery keeps you guessing. She makes an emergency move to another state and meets Liam in the process. He immediately inserts himself into her new life, leaving Amy with mixed emotions and decisions to make. Does she let herself feel something real or does she protect herself, and Liam, by denying herself what she’s never had – a connection with another person that goes beyond lies and secrets.
Liam Stone is bossy, mysterious, and sex-on-a-stick. His charisma jumps off the page and makes you want to do naughty things to him. You’re probably going to need a cold shower at some point during this book because he will light you up like it’s the 4th of July. But, Liam just isn’t sex-on-a-stick. The man has his own secrets and is a bit dark and mysterious. Just when you think you’ve figured him out – WHAMO – you get knocked for the mother of all loops!
I’ve been assured that the sequel is being written as we speak… It’s a good thing – because I don’t want to hurt someone to find out what the heck happens! Lisa Renee Jones has taken the New Adult genre and given it a sizzle that makes this book memorable and unique.
My rating: 5 you will need a cold shower and a new pair of panty stars!
