Passion. Mystery. It all collides in the breathtaking conclusion to the New York Times bestselling INSIDE OUT series, ALL OF ME.
He's rich and famous, his past dark, but so is hers. Can they save each other? Or will the darkness tear them apart?
ALL OF ME, the sixth and final novel in the INSIDE OUT series is
Entering the kitchen, I find Chris leaning on the marble countertop by the coffeepot, shirtless and
in his pajama bottoms, the long strands of his blond hair a wild, sexy mess I’m pretty sure I
created last night.
He glances up from the paper he’s reading, then picks up his coffee cup. “Morning, Ms.
“Morning, Mr. Merit,” I reply, grinning as I join him.
He offers me his coffee cup and I happily accept it, taking a drink of the perfectly flavored coffee
and creamer. Sharing a cup with Chris has this sexy, intimate feel to it that always does funny
things to my belly.
“Your last day as a free woman,” he comments.
“Why? Are you planning to tie me up sometime soon?”
He covers my hands on his cup. “Is that an objection, or wishful thinking?” He tilts the cup and
drinks, his eyes never leaving mine.
“I plead the Fifth. It’s more fun that way.”
“That it is,” he agrees, but a sigh follows. “I wish I could do the same, but you’d better look at
the newspaper.” He sets the cup on the counter, then hands me the Arts section of the local
Dread fills me as I read the headline: “Acclaimed Artist and Philanthropist Chris Merit to wed
Sara McMillan on Valentine’s Day in Star-studded Event in Sonoma.” I set it down. “We went to
so much trouble to get the press off our backs before the wedding, and now they’ve found us! I
knew when all these famous people showed up on the guest list, it was going to turn into a zoo.”
“Walker Security anticipated the press, and they’re staffed and ready for it. It’ll be fine. We’ll be
Nerves the size of birds, not butterflies, attack my stomach.
“We should have eloped.”
“We still can. Let’s do it. Now. Today.”
“We can’t elope,” I say, sounding appalled, as if he’d suggested it, not me. “People who respect
you are coming a long way to see us. And Katie has planned this for months.”
“Baby, we can do whatever we want. This is our day.”
“No. We can’t. Not this far into this. Which reminds me— you can’t stay here tonight. It’s bad
luck to see the bride the night before the wedding.”
“I told you how I feel about that. We make our own luck.”
He kisses me. “I’m staying here tonight, and I’m fucking you like I won’t see you ever again,
just to be sure you walk down that aisle.”
“If you’re waiting for me at the end of that aisle, I’ll be there. And if you’re staying here tonight,
we can use separate bedrooms.”
“Does today count as part of that eve-of-the-wedding rule?”
He scoops me up and I yelp. “What are you doing?”
“I’m a renegade, baby. Let’s go break the rules.”
I feel this is a bittersweet moment. I'm happy Chris and Sara are happy but I'm sad the series is done now.
This is a short novella recounting their lives after the engagement until their wedding day.
It starts in Paris, with Chris dealing with an angry and in grief Tristan. Even though, Chris is grieving too and feels responsible for Amber's death, he won't make the same mistakes. His communication with Sara is an open book now and this is what keeps him sane. Sara does get worry about Chantal with Tristan but I don't think she needs to worry when Rey is there to save the day.
When Chris and Sara are back in LA, they meet with Mark and Crystal, who are now a couple. Mark is a new man thanks to Crystal. His new behavior baffles both of them in a good way.
I love how Lisa gave us closure to most of the characters. The main ones are all happy. Too bad Rebecca had to loose it all for everyone else to find happiness.
