His touch spirals through me, warm and sweet, wicked and hot. I shouldn’t trust him. I shouldn’t tell him my secrets. But how do I not when he is the reason I breathe? He is what I need.
At the young age of eighteen, tragedy and a dark secret force Lara to flee all she has known and loves to start a new life. Now years later, with a new identity as Amy, she’s finally dared to believe she is forgotten–even if she cannot forget. But just when she lets down her guard, the ghosts of her past are quick to punish her, forcing her back on the run.
On a plane, struggling to face the devastation of losing everything again and starting over, Amy meets Liam Stone, a darkly entrancing recluse billionaire, who is also a brilliant, and famous, prodigy architect. A man who knows what he wants and goes after it. And what he wants is Amy. Refusing to take “no” as an answer, he sweeps her into a passionate affair, pushing her to her erotic limits. He wants to possess her. He makes her want to be possessed. Liam demands everything from her, accepting nothing less. But what if she is too devastated by tragedy to know when he wants more than she should give? And what if there is more to Liam than meets the eyes?

ESCAPING REALITY is a very hot story about a young woman who is running from her past and a hot billionaire who she is drawn too yet afraid to let him into her life. Ms. Jones does a superb job of bringing her readers into Amy's thoughts and fears. Something or someone is after her and she has to keep changing identities and the last thing that she wants is to become involved with anyone who might then be a target.
I really liked both Amy and Liam. I found myself cheering when Liam refused to let Amy push him away especially as he doesn't know and she won't give him a reason why. He is a Prince Charming with his one dark secrets who is determined to both have and protect Amy from her Godzillas. He is sex personified and this is one hot book that delves lightly into bondage.
My only complaint about this book the conclusion. Or actually the lack of a conclusion. It just leaves the reader hanging on the edge of a cliff and I prefer to have some type of closure even if it isn't the end of a series.
I do recommend this book to my readers who enjoy hot reading material as this one is sexy enough to require a tub of ice. Just be warned that you will need to rush out and get the next book if you don't have both handy and ready to read.
