THE MASTER UNDONE is the fifth novella in Lisa Renee Jones Inside Out Novellas and told from the ‘Masters’ POV. Do not read before Being Me, as it contains a major spoiler.
Mark Compton has had 2 major blows in his life in the last 24 hours. First he found out that his submissive, and someone he allowed himself to get really close to, was killed at the hands of her replacement. And now, he’s just been told that his mother has stage 3 breast cancer and needs a double mastectomy. With his personal life in turmoil, Mark will discover a feisty, independent female, a woman whom his mother respects and trusts, in the guise of one Crystal Smith.
Good intentions are all very well in theory; reality is often very different. When Mark meets Crystal Smith who works for Riptide in New York he finds himself dealing with reactions and emotions that are quite new to him.
Crystal Smith is the complete opposite of the sort of woman Mark usually finds himself attracted to; blond, assertive, independent and without a submissive bone in her body, she shouldn’t affect him at all. And yet:
“She’s everything I don’t like in a woman, and yet I can’t take my eyes of her.”
Chris has also spoken to Mark and let him know that he “Would walk through Hell with him right now” as he deals with his mother’s illness. Will this help start to mend the rift between two friends. Will Mark learn to relinquish the tight control he has to have over everyone. This book helps you to realize that Mark is human after all. I can NOT wait for Revealing Us as after that it is my understanding that Mark will have his full length story. I am very much looking forward to that.

I received an ARC copy of this book from Pocket in exchange of an honest review.
- Connection to The Inside Out Trilogy that has recently been optioned to STARZ for TV with Suzanne Todd (Alice in Wonderland w/Johnny Depp) producing and includes exciting clues for the series readers but stands alone as its own exciting erotic story.
