BLOG TOUR STOP & GIVEAWAY & REVIEW - I belong to You by Lisa Renee Jones

I Belong to You  (Book 5) Inside Out

RELEASE DATE: November 18th

Being that person, that man, is how I define myself, how I allow the rest of the world to define me as well. And now, with a terrible loss shredding me inside out and someone trying to destroy my family to punish me, control is more important than ever. It is everything. It is what I need. It is all I need. Or maybe I just need...her.

EXCERPT  (I Belong to You)

Excerpt from I Belong to You (Inside Out #5) by Lisa Renee Jones. Copyright 2014

Crystal’s eyes meet mine, and I know she’s seen what I feel. My ability to hide my emotions has gone to shit, along with my ability to deny they exist—at least where she’s concerned. I have that sense of connection with her. It’s a vulnerable moment, and I find myself fighting the rawness of the emotions it stirs. My cock thickens, the need for sex and release—my way of coping with what I don’t want to exist—hitting me hard and fast.

“We’re leaving at nine, instead of eight thirty,” I say, walking past her to the shower. After stripping down, I open the door to turn on the water and don’t wait for it to warm. Stepping forward, I let the cold water wash over me and turn my back to Crystal, pressing my hands on the wall.


Her voice whispers over my nerve endings and my body doesn’t seem to care how cold the water is. I want her. “Not now, Ms. Smith.” I grab her shampoo and soap my hair, the damn flowery scent surrounding me. I rinse it off but it’s too late; the scent is all over me. I wipe water from my face, smooth my hair back, and turn to the damn wall again, smelling roses and jasmine mixed together. Rebecca. Crystal. Confusion.

The door opens, telling me Crystal has ignored my dismissal, but what’s new? I cut her a hard look over my shoulder. “What part of ‘not now’ do you not understand?” I ask, my eyes traveling her naked body, her tight little pink nipples, and I growl low in my throat with the thickening of my cock, turning away to let my head fall forward.

“Oh dear God,” she gasps, “the water is freezing.” In a moment the cold becomes warm, like my blood.

“Go away, Ms.—”

“Crystal,” she corrects as she ducks under my arms to rest on the wall in front of me, her hands settling on my chest and turning my warm blood to hot.

Grinding my teeth, I compel myself not to touch her. “Damn it, woman. Don’t you get it? I fuck when I’m in a bad place. That’s what I do. I fuck, and I need to fuckyou right now.”

She wraps her arms around me, my erection pressing against her hip, and it’s torture, absolute torture, not to touch her. “Then fuck me,” she whispers.

“What part of ‘we don’t have a condom’ have you forgotten?”

“I’m on the pill.”

“And you didn’t tell me last night,” I say, part a demand for explanation and part accusation.

“You told me you always use condoms. I knew that made you safe for me, but I wasn’t sure you’d think it made me safe for you.”

“How many partners?”

She blinks. “Partners? Oh. Partners. One without a condom, and I lived with him for over a year. He was clean. I made sure of it, and just to be clear, I’d never go without a condom for a one-night stand. Or even several, like we were. But now you’re—”

“Moving in with you,” I say, wrapping my fingers around her neck, pulling her mouth a breath from mine. “That means you belong to me now.”

“No,” she says. “It means—”

My mouth slants over hers, cutting off her words, my tongue pressing past her lips, delving deeply, possessiveness rising in me so intense that it’s a living, breathing thing. I hate the man she lived with. I deepen the kiss, wild hunger rising inside me, driven by darkness and the self-blame that I’ve lived with for ten years. What am I doing with Crystal? What the fuck am I doing?

I turn her into a corner, my hands on her shoulders, and step back enough to loosen her grip around my waist. “You should get me the hell out of your life, before I destroy you like I did Rebecca. Tell me to leave.”

She laughs without humor. “Like you’d listen?”

“Damn it, tell me to leave, Crystal,” I demand.

“Your staying or leaving doesn’t impact the premise of your demand, which seems to be that I have no control over myself. That’s wrong. I decide who destroys me, not you, Mark Compton.”

“You think Rebecca didn’t say that?”

“Apparently being a Master has confused you, or made you a little too arrogant for your own good. I have a mind of my own.”

“That’s what she said.”

Her hands go to my arms. “And she left you, Mark. That’s not a woman who lost her backbone or her own mind. She wasn’t too weak to survive you and whatever you think you did to her.”

I tangle my fingers in her now damp hair. “You don’t know everything. You were right when you said I’m an asshole. I am.” I turn her to the wall and lean in close. “You want me to stay?”


“Are you sure?

“Yes. I want you to stay.”

“Then you need to know who and what I am. I’m going to spank you and it’s not going to be gentle.
And in the future I will flog you, clamp you, and torment you in ways that you have never dreamed of. Still want me to stay?”


Do you want me to stay?” I ask, rubbing her backside to get the blood flow where I want it.

“Yes. I do.”

My Review


Lisa Renee Jones never disappoints, from the first book I’ve read by her to this, I have fallen in love with her flawless writing style, her characters and stories.

She draws you in from the beginning with her intense personalities, suspenseful, sexy and erotic storyline and plot   And her characters are all gorgeous.  I love the way they all intertwine from one story to another.  

Absolutely brilliant.

I Belong to You is Mark Compton’s story – and what a story it is.  He is the dark, brooding, controlling alpha male who is so intense and erotic that he will have you panting his praises.  

He is the Master and expects you to do as he says.  His character is so interesting and complicated that you just CAN'T NOT LOVE him.  

He’s a proud man drowning in the guilt over Rebecca as well as trying to deal with his mum’s cancer battle.

His past is haunting him - he needs to find out the truth about Rebecca.  He needs to be in control.   But there is so much more to Mark Compton than what you see on the surface.  His layers run deep and it’s a beautiful thing to see them unwrapped.

And Crystal is the one to unwrap them.  To envelope them within herself to help him heal – and in doing so Mark heals Crystal’s past demons.

Crystal is the perfect woman for him.  She is stubborn, like Mark.  She doesn’t back down.  She is independent, feisty, sassy, tender and soft.  Everything that Mark craves.  

The way these two interact with each other is compelling and engaging.  They are both so stubborn, insistent, determined and feisty.

Crystal & Mark

 He inches backward, release my wrists, and taking the promise of a kiss with him, those gray eyes resting keenly on my face.

 “What am I trying to do?”

“This is a game.  It’s manipulation.”

“I want to fuck you.  Many times.  Many ways.  How is that manipulation?”

“One minute you want to fuck me.  The next…”

“I always want to fuck you.  I just want to do it my way.  With your pleasure at my mercy.  Your hands tied up.  Your legs tied up.  Your clit on my tongue.”


“Why? Am I making you wet?”

I glare , my only defense against an answer I’m not going to give him.

“I’ll find out for myself”, he says, dragging my hemline upward before I know his intent.
“Don’t even think about it.”

“We’re both thinking about it”

Mark struggles with everything around him, his emotions, his feelings, his control.  Crystal brings peace and calmness to Mark’s turbulent and chaotic world. 

And let me say, their connection is electrifying.  It is so intense, sexual and sensual that you will be breathless for more.


“This isn’t about one night anymore, Crystal.  If I stay, I won’t walk away again.  I’ll try to won you,” he warns.  “I want you that badly.”


Finally he reaches for me, dragging me against him, his hands cupping my backside as he lifts me.  Instinctively, my arms wrap around his neck, my legs around his waist, and his palms flatten on my back, holding me as if he’s afraid I’ll escape.  We stay like that for long moments, and the sea of turbulence between us fades into calm, then sizzles into a fire.  In this space in time, no matter how delicate the seams, I am woven into his life and he into mine.

But deep down they are two equally hurt and damaged souls anguished by their pasts.  Looking for something more in their life.

How long will it take Mark to realize what she is to him?  Why does he push her away?

Will he surrender to his feelings for her that are driving him crazy, making him lose his control?

The plot, secrets and mystery to this story is gradually revealed throughout it, and it will take you on an amazing journey of discovery - of two people so alike but yet so very different. 

They will each draw you to them.  Their characters are so real and sensual.  Especially Mark - no matter how much you may disapprove or dislike him – you are drawn to him.  He will bring you to him.  He has that power to make you love him.

Lisa Renee Jones, thank you for bringing us more of Mark Compton and revealing the beautiful alpha man that he is.
