One women 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.

So, I pretty much lust after the Inside Out series. Lisa Renee Jones totally sucked me in and I've been loving it. I so did some fan girl squealing when I saw that The Master Undone was going to be told from Mark's point of view. (and gah! total covergasm) Yes, yes. I know. Everyone loves Chris--the main hero so far in the series--and I'll admit he's got some awesome going on but Mark?  Yeaaah, it turns out... I'm a bit of a twisted bitch because Mark, dear lord, he so does it for me. I just love the arrogant bastard and getting a peak into his private life with Master Undone was a nice treat.

And gotta say. I'm loving Mark even more now. You get to see a different side of him in The Master Undone and it was a nice change. He's not completely in control or on top of his game like he usually is as he rushes home to be by his mother's side as she goes in for a major surgery. He's really needing someone to hold on to get him through the ordeal which brings in Crystal--who works for his mother, is upfront and straight forward and not one bit intimidated by the big bad demanding Dom. I loved these two together. They have great chemistry, really connect and I just loved how her reactions (or lack there of) to his dominating personality kind of spun him. While there's not a ton in the steamy scene department what's there is hot and nicely done.
"You don't have--"

"I'm walking you to the car."

"Okay" Her chin lifts with challenge. "You have my permission to walk me to the car."

My lips tighten and so does my groin. "As long as I have your permission," I say sardonically.

She simply give me a nod and starts walking and, as I'm becoming accustomed, she seems to expect me to follow. And holy hell, I do. But I want to grab her and pull her to the elevator and upstairs, where I can punish her with pleasure for making me this willing to chase her. 
I loved watching Mark and Crystal interact, seeing some real emotions out of him and getting to meet his family. While I loved all that and the writing was tight and engaging the ending did leave something to be desired--at least for me. I'm hoping there will be more to these two when Mark's book eventually comes out but wishing, just a little, I'd held off on reading this until then.

Have you read Lisa Renee Jones? What did you think? 
Have you ever really loved a character everyone else was 'eh' about?
