~* 5 Stars for Escaping Reality by Lisa Renee Jones *~

This is my first book by Miss Jones. After reading Escaping Reality I have to say that it will not be my last. It is hard to categorize the genre but I'd probably go with mystery, suspense, contemporary.

In the beginning we have Amy who is currently at a party for her job. She's socializing and the story immediately has your heart pounding when she heads into the bathroom. In the bathroom there is a note on the mirror with her name on it and the race is has begun again.

She runs into the stall to read the note. It is a note from her handler letting her know that if he can find her, then so can they. We don't know who they are. All we know is basically Amy is in a sort of witness protection type program. There's a special symbol that her handler uses and its on the bottom of the note. He tells her to leave immediately and to not go home but straight to the airport. There are keys to a locker there that have all the information she needs on her new again identity.

While she's at the airport her eyes connect and sizzle with a mysterious handsome stranger and she can't look away. The flight is booked and she might not get a chance to board this flight. She's not normally pushy but she's insistent to the flight attendant that it is a matter of emergency...she NEEDS to be on this plane. Luckily for her they get her on the flight and to boot she's been moved to first class...and you guessed it, right next to the handsome stranger she's connected with. His name is Liam and he makes her heart race. 

At this point she's trying to check out her "new" identity...Luckily its still her name Amy but a different last name. She knows nothing about her new self and in order to blend and hide she needs to know who she is and Liam is extremely curious. She manages to escape him at landing but then sees him again outside the airport with his car. Somehow he's beat her there and is insisting on driving her to her new home. 

I don't want to give too much away. But basically the story is a lot of intrigue, mystery, and suspense. If you are expecting a book to wrap up all loose ends at the end you'll be disappointed. This series leaves on a cliff hanger. A to be continued in the next book so to speak. I absolutely loved it and just like Amy I was confused on who I could and couldn't "trust" by the end. I'm literally dying for the next book at this point. I have my suspicions but I suck at the guessing game so I'm probably way off. 

If you like stories that will keep your heart pounding-where you feel you are the character you'll love this book by Lisa Renee Jones. I will be snatching up book 2 as soon as it becomes available as I have to know what happens to Amy. I want answers to my questions and I'm hoping in book 2 I will get the answers I've desperately been searching for. 

Give this book a try, you won't be disappointed!

This book was bought by me for the pure pleasure of reading and reviewing it. As you can tell, this review is my own and nothing influenced my review of this fantastic book.

Testimonials from some fabulous authors!

Just wanted to share some amazing testimonials I've received the last few months. I truly enjoyed working with each and everyone of these authors and continue to interact with them on a regular basis. Thank you guys for promoting with me ;) Can't wait to do more with you in the future!

If you're interested in booking a Release Day Party or using my Multiple Author Street team, simply drop me an email at authorbookpromotions@gmail.com 

Thank you and happy writing! <3 ~Chelsea 

"Chelsea was very easy to work with and came through with what was promised. Her street team is very responsive, and I saw increases in sales, Likes, reviews, etc. Plus, her prices are reasonable." -Katya Armock

"Hiring Chelsea to help with street team promotion and release parties has to rank as one of the smartest decisions I've made this year. Not only is she a wonderful person and just plain fun, she is incredibly professional and organised. Within a short space of time my visibility had increased across multiple platforms and interaction on facebook (which I'd previously struggled with) was amazing! If you're struggling with promotion and getting yourself out there, then I highly recommend Chelsea."
-Mina Carter

"Chelsea Rafferty of Chelsea Author Promotions was able to exceed my expectations only three days into a two-week promotion service she provided. In that time, I saw such a tremendous boost to my outreach in each and every one of my promo pages (so much so that, even weeks later, I’m still seeing growth from the efforts). These achievements were made all the more astounding when I reflected not only on the special price I was offered, but the standard pricing for the services (to the point where I was compelled to articulate that I felt they were UNDERcharging their product). I would absolutely recommend anybody in the industry to make use of these services (though I’m hesitant to do so due to the boost in competition’s edge lol)."
-Nathan Squiers

"Chelsea author promotions really helped my pages gain outreach to an incredible level. Her and her groups were incredibly helpful and I noticed a substantial increase on my pages during her promotions and also continued after my promotion period was up. I would definitely suggest her to any author looking to gain more outreach and promotion on their pages and books!! I will definitely be going to her again!! Thank you so much, Chelsea Rafferty!"
-Megan J Parker

"Chelsea's promotion was a great help in increasing likes etc on many different social media sites. If you want to build your platform she can certainly help with that!"
-Jen Wylie

"As a debut author trying to navigate the social media marketing maze, working with Chelsea really upped my social media profile. She worked by targeting where I was weakest and in those areas I saw 80%+ growth rates. She also managed to get me some reviews, a nut I had not been able to crack on my own. She's a joy to work with and I can't recommend her more highly."
-Sabrina Garie

"My writer friend Jennifer James turned me on to Chelsea Author Promotions. I'm so glad she did, Chelsea has the best street team! I signed up for two weeks of promotion and saw relevant and notable increases in all areas - FB 'likes', Goodreads Friends, Amazon Author 'likes', Pinterest & Twitter followers. All the areas she gave a shout out to her teams on saw an increase, some over 100%. Plus she is super nice to work with and very reasonably priced. Very much looking forward to using her again!"
-Ellie Heller

"Using Chelsea's services was quick, easy, and streamlined. Not only did she provide me with statistical feedback regarding the promotion done, the reviewers she employs have translated into new readers who continue to interact with me. Working with Chelsea and her group is a breeze, and I look forward to scheduling a release day party with her in the future."
-Jennifer James

I noticed a huge bump in facebook likes, friends, and Goodreads. I would absolutely not only try your service again but I would refer you to friends! Thanks for all your help!
-Kerrigan Byrne

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would see such drastic improvements in visibility and activity from a particular campaign, but now I know. Put Chelsea and her fabulous team in charge of things and all will be wonderful! I saw such dramatic increases in every arena that she promised to focus on. I plan on using Chelsea and her amazing promotions team every chance I get!"
-Deena Remiel, Author of Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance

"Chelsea Rafferty is an exceptional promoter. She not only puts her all into getting her authors front and center, she has a following that increases every single day. She is efficient and thorough and has a good understanding of what she needs to get her authors noticed. In addition to all that, I found her business ethic exceptional and her price for all the above, completely lower than most promoters."
-Claudy Conn

"The 1st rule in promotions for those hiring/doing is proven numbers. We want to SEE what works and doesn’t to know how better to spend our time and/or money.
Chelsea Author Promotions did just that. Proved the numbers by a detailed recount. But...wasn’t just her recount. I saw the numbers and spikes for myself. Her figures just came in handy for further review.
Would highly recommend her services."
-Bobbi Romans- Author of the Swamp Magic Series
