Waiting on Wednesday: Inside Out by Lauren Dane

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I'm waiting on Inside Out by Lauren Dane:

Ella Tipton is a survivor. In the wake of an attack that left her nearly dead, she’s spent each day putting her life back together. Once vibrant and outgoing, she’s needed to reclaim the best parts of who she was while retaining the hard won lessons. There hasn’t been room for any romantic entanglements, even if she were ready. Still, it didn’t mean she had to stop sneaking looks at Mister Tall, Dark and Tattooed himself.

Security professional Andrew Copeland isn’t quite sure when his jones for the lovely and decidedly skittish Ella developed. He’s known her for years, has watched her triumph over the pain she’d been dealt. Cope is no stranger to women, but he knows the nervous flush he gets every time he talks to her is different than any attraction he’s had in the past. Determined to get Ella to let him in, Andy does the one thing he can think of to get close: he offers her hands-on training in self-defense.

While Ella’s sure he’s just being nice, the prospect of being able to touch him and gain the tools to push away the last vestiges of her fear is more than she can resist. Soon enough, Cope shows Ella his feelings are far more than friendly and re-ignites something deep inside her. Before long desire and love turn them both inside out.

  4. I'm going to be snarky and ask if this could be retitled to The Guy With the Dragon Tattoo?

  5. This sounds great! Dane is a new to me author, so thanks for the introduction :)

    Check out my WoW :D

  6. I've never read this author... admittedly, the title caught my eye because one of my favorite authors has a book called Inside Out, and another called Outside In... I'm wondering how the rules of book naming work? If they're in different genres they can have the same name?!


    Please stop by my pick:

  7. Looks steamy. I have yet to read something from this author. I hope you get your book and that you enjoy it. Check out what I am Waiting on Wednesday for.
