From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, an Inside Out series e-short told from Mark’s point of view, as he battles his all-consuming desire for Crystal.
Devastated by Rebecca’s death, Mark is facing the chaos of the press and the police investigation alone, his reputation, his business, and even his freedom under threat. When a family emergency sends him back east to New York, he puts Crystal—who’s as capable as she is challenging—in charge of his San Francisco art gallery. A Master, all about control, right now he feels that he has none. With his secret sex club and his relationships of the past in the spotlight, Mark finds sanctuary in the one place he promised he would never be again—but cannot seem to resist. Crystal’s arms.
Mark isn't one of my favorite characters in this series but this novella showed a more human side to the controlling "Bossman". Torn apart by the devastating events that took place during the first books in this series, he tried his best to keep that cool façade, and I was just waiting for it to crack.
Mark was extremely taken aback by the fact that he was so drawn to Crystal but I could see why he would be. She was very different from what he usually went for, and in a way it felt like he was trying to let go of his past. I also think that he enjoyed the challenge she presented. She wasn't easily swayed by his dominance and she often defied him, which annoyed but also intrigued him.
I'm not sure where their relationship will lead but I am excited to see it unfold. They have great chemistry and the passion ignites when they're together. I just wonder if Mark will be willing to let go enough to allow Crystal in. I cannot wait for more from these two characters.
