In her private journals, Rebecca laid bare her soul, revealing her obsession for the one man whose erotic demands captivated her imagination–and enslaved her forever. Now, with Rebecca no longer in his life, “he” is lost, questioning everything he thought he knew about himself and about control he holds in such high regard. One woman will reach out to heal him and then turn away, leaving him haunted. She is nothing he thought he wanted and somehow everything he needs. He tells himself to forget her but he cannot escape his desire for her. He has to have more…


Review:  Like the phoenix that rises from the ashes of destruction, The Master Undone is a story of both triumph and tragedy. As book 2.5 in the Inside Out series, it is absolutely essential that this novella be read in sequence. If you purchase Rebecca’s Lost Journals, this novella is included as a bonus, but should be read later in the series.

Author Lisa Renee Jones focuses on gallery owner Mark Compton, a man who is the epitome of a true Alpha personality. Although introduced in the beginning of the series, this installment is told from Mark’s point of view.

Mark has always been portrayed as needing a woman who is submissive. Yet when he meets Crystal, the sparks start flying as their personalities collide. This installment does a fantastic job showing the different facets of Mark’s character, which is one of the reasons why the title is so appropriate.

When you take a dominant male who is used to maintaining power and control and pair him with an equally non-submissive female, you are guaranteed an explosive connection. By the end of the novella, readers will be prepped for a resolution, but it’s not quite time for the big reveal.
