You've discovered Rebecca's secrets. You've discovered Sara's secrets. Now Sara will discover "his" deepest, darkest secrets...but will those secrets bind them together--or tear them apart?
Revealing Us takes place a day after Being Me is over. Before I start I just want to say how much I enjoyed reading the previous books in a series, If I Were You and Being Me were such an amazing reads. Revealing Us is set in Paris where Sara goes with Chris to escape the last days and what happened and to finally find out all of the Chris's darkest secrets.
To tell you the truth after finishing the book I was a little bit disappointed, maybe because I set a very high hopes for this book after reading and loving the first two books, but this one just didn't do it for me. Before you boo me I do have to say that there were some parts that I loved and I never even thought of giving up on this book. I liked it, I liked how it tied up a lot of things about Chris and Sara, and how we finally get to see other parts of Chris, his passion and pain. Chris is probably one of my favorite book males. He is just so amazing, even if he does tend to hide how he feels from Sara, but that is what makes him even more sexier, is his mystery. I mean how can you not like Chris?
"And this, right now, is me savoring every second of making love to you. And in case you didn't know, you're the only reason I know what that means."
“I don’t know how to love you and not protect you,” he says, and my eyes lift at his soft confession. My heart thunders as he adds, “And I don’t know how to protect you and not overwhelm you. I’m always going to be on edge. I’m always going to think… too much.
The chemistry between Sarah and Chris...well you just can't deny it, because it was definitely there. Strong and passionate chemistry. From book one you can feel their attraction and in Revealing Us you can feel their strong feeling for each other, their love. The way they cared for each other was just heartwarming. Also the way they showed their ownership of each other, that was really hot and steamy!
"...If you were going to leave me alone, you should have walked away before now, when I still knew how to breathe without you."
“Do it.” His fingers stroke into the silky wet V of my body, and I am panting, barely able to speak, but I swallow and somehow finish my challenge. “The more you push me, the more I push back, Chris.”
The reason why I was disappointed by this book was because of Sara. I really didn't like her that much as I liked her in previous books. She kept saying how she loved Chris and than when something bad happens or she sees something that might look like a different situation, she either quickly comes to a conclusion or she runs. That really made me mad....I just wanted to slap her at times. It felt like she had no trust in Chris and she wants to run from him, even though its her who would always say that Chris is trying to run from her or trying to push her way, but for me at times it felt like it was more of Sara. Chris was the one who hold them together and tried to explain to her the truth. I was just annoyed with her. In book two, Being Me, she was a little bit like that too, but not as much. In Being Me it was to an understanding point but in Revealing Us it was just to a ridiculous point. I also felt like in the end the book was rushed. I feel like it took way to much time to reveal Chris's secret.
In conclusion I was a little bit disappointing by Revealing Us. But it doesn't mean that I wouldn't recommend this book! This series is definitely worth reading because even though for me this book wasn't as great as the first two, it was still good. This book really tied up some knots and we see more of Sara's and Chris's feeling for each other. We also get to meet some of Chris's old "lovers", that was interesting! I'm glad that there is going to be more books in a series and that we will finally have more of Mark (I miss Mark) and the spin-off about Ella!I can't wait!
