Synopsis from Goodreads

An Inside Out story, Chris's POV

In a world where my only escape has been my art, Sara has been the light in my darkness. And there is darkness, the kind of inky black that can bleed from my life to hers.

She doesn't see it. She doesn't understand what I've shown her. And my biggest fear is that soon...she will.


     His Secrets is the novella that takes place where Revealing Us left off. I love these novellas bcause we get the POVs of the other mqin characters besides Sara. In this novella, we get things from Chris's point of view. Chris and Sara are still in Paris. Things are going well, but there is still a dark cloud over them. That cloud is Chris's past and it is coming back with a vengeance.

    I am so in love with this series and was so excited to finally get the chance to delve into Chris's mind. We find he is still tortured over what he has done. His ex is back and he was the one the got her into the BDSM lifestyle. They both took things too far when they were together and it nearly destroyed Chris. Sadly, it is still destroying his ex, Amber. She is an absolute wreck and Chris is not sure he can save her because it seems she doesn't want to be saved. Chris is finally happy with Sara, but he is afraid if she knew everything he has done, it will scare her away.

    Chris has been a favorite for me since the beginning and I love that we were able to get into his head and see the emotional rollercoaster he is on. He is really all over the place and it is quite nuts. One minute he wants Sara to leave him because he thinks she will see him as a monster. The next minute he says he will never leave her side no matter what. He will always try to find her. I wanted to scream at him, but I do understand his conflictions. He really is at war with himself.

      Chris sees his Amber is slowly ruining herself and she may be at the point of no return. It would crush him if the same happened to Sara. Sara, however, is much more resillent than that. She sticks with Chris through it all. It hurt a bit to see that he didn't trust her strength enough. I wanted to slap he mess out of him. I just kept saying, "She is not Amber, you idiot!" Hell, after everything that has gone on with the Rebecca situation, you really think she can't handle herself? What gives Chris?!

     Nonetheless, this was a great and short read. Everything I love about the series squeezed into 60 glorious pages. The love between Chris and Sara is strong and gets even stronger in this book. Can't wait to see where Jones will take these characters. They are far from being out of the woods. These novellas are as addictive as their full length counterparts and they can't be missed.
