Please note: This is the standalone spinoff of the INSIDE OUT series. New readers can enjoy this without reading INSIDE OUT but those who love INSIDE OUT will FINALLY find out what happened to Ella!

Ella Ferguson awakes alone in Italy, unsure of who she is, and a gorgeous man has claimed her as his own. He's tall, dark, and sexy, with money and power, the kind of man who makes a girl want to be possessed. And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn't destroy her first.


I couldn’t sleep. I meant to go to the kitchen and then I ended up here because I wanted . . .” His reaction cuts like his anger. “Just never mind.” I try to move around him but his hands press to the wall beside me, caging me, and now I’m angry. “Are we doing this again? Don’t bully me. My stupid flashbacks are doing a fine job of that on their own. I said I’m sorry. Just let me go back to my room.”

“You wanted what?”

“I wanted you to do what you swore you could,” I blurt, having nothing to lose when everything is already gone.

“Only I don’t want you to fuck me until I can’t remember my name. I want you to fuck me until I stop thinking about that man and the gun. Because you were right. Memories are the enemies that never die. But I know you don’t want—”

His hand slides under my hair and he drags me to him, my hand flattening on the hard wall of his chest. “I do want. So fucking bad it’s killing me.”

My palm is directly over his heart, and I can feel it racing, the air around us crackling with barely contained passion. “I don’t need a hero to save my virtue tonight. I need you. So please. Fuck me and then fuck with my head so no one else can. Let me choose my own sins.”

He is stone, unmoving, his body steel, his expression unreadable, the sexual tension crackling between us. “You want sin, sweetheart,” he says. “I’ll give you sin.” His mouth closes down on mine, his tongue licking into my mouth, wicked with demand, and I can taste his hunger, his need. A deep, aching need I want to fill.

My Thoughts on Denial...

Could you imagine waking up in a strange country where you have no memory of how you got there, who you are, and what happened to you? This is exactly what happened to Ella. She has a concussion but doesn’t know how she got it. She wakes up in hospital bed in Italy with no memory of who she is and why this handsome man is by her side. She feels like she knows him but doesn’t know why. Denial is Ella’s story and her struggle to remember who she is. It’s captivating, suspenseful, and had me on the edge of my seat the entire time! This is a great spin off of the Inside Out Series and I cannot wait to see what happens next!!

Ella knows she was in a dark alley when she was attacked and suffered her concussion but she doesn’t know how she got there. She knows she was a red head but her hair is poorly dyed to a dull brown. She has no license, no passport, no money, and she finds herself at the mercy of the man she seems to trust but doesn’t know why, Kayeden . She knows he’s powerful and has connections and when the police come to question her, he advices her not to trust them. She is left questioning everything she does.

Bits and pieces of Ella’s memory come back in flashback and none of it makes sense to her. She knows there is a man who she thought was her knight in shining armor but it ends up being the opposite. She knows she’s afraid of him and what he can do to her but she her mind has blocked him out. Why? What happened to make this happen? As the story unfolds my mind is reeling!! What was Ella running from? Who is she running from?? Kayeden stays by her side and is helping her recovery her memory but I can’t help by think why is he so helpful! What does he have to gain??  And never mind the hotness factor!!  Kayeden is sexy as hell and I found myself falling for him even thought I have doubts on what his motives are!

This does end in a cliff and there is more to this story that I cannot wait for! This is Lisa Renee Jones at her best and I was reminiscing of when I first read If I Where You and I had these same feelings! I just loved it!! This series is a great spin off and I cannot wait to get more!! This is a must read!! Huge 5 star read!!
