ARC Review: Escaping Reality (The Secret Life of Amy Bensen, #1) by Lisa Renee Jones

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?

You know those books that you cannot go to sleep until it's finished? It grips you from page one and no matter what is going on tomorrow, the only thing that matters is finishing the book tonight? Well, that's Escaping Reality, which is a fitting title considering that what's happening when I refuse to think of the consequences of staying up until 4:30am to finish this book. (Pssst... I would have stayed up even later had I needed to. Sleep be damned!) 

Escaping Reality is about young woman with a very troubled past that causes her to leave her old life behind,  with the help of a mystery handler, and take on a new identity and begin her life anew. Unfortunately, 6 years later, her mystery handler leaves her a note stating that she's in danger, and she's once again thrust into a new identity in a new city. 

On the plane to her new destination, she meets Liam. An incredibly sexy billionaire architect who, almost immediately, sees right through her. His ability to see to the core of her, along with her instant attraction to him causes her body and mind go through the crazy hot/cold, push/pull scenarios. Amy immediate feels that Liam is a trustworthy man, but to trust him would put him at risk and that's not something she's willing to do. She tries to push him away but Liam is a force of nature and he always gets what he wants. This time, he wants Amy, and no amount of pushing will push Liam away. 

A new job, new neighbor, new landlord, all things Amy should be used to but something just doesn't feel right about her current situation. Add in a domineering, sexy new boyfriend and this story has everything you need.
