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, the ghosts 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?

My Thoughts:

I have not read any other books by Mrs. Jones, though my mother is in love with her Inside Out series. I can say that Escaping Reality is my new favorite book! I love the writing style and the details make everything click.
Liam and Amy are a great couple and though he is a tad bit controlling it works for the story and it works for Amy.
Amy is the perfect girl on the run, wanting to set down roots; but knowing that she really can't for the fear of her past catching up with her. And while I would have loved to know more about what happened when she was younger, i like the mystery that it lends to the story with us only getting bits and pieces.
The characters of Meg and Jared just seem a little off for me, and i am almost wondering if them or maybe even Liam are part of Amy's past that she is running from. I can't wait for the next book so that I can know what is going on!
