Ella Tipton is finally getting her life back together. The job she loves is about to become full-time. She has a great group of friends who support her daily, and even her romantic life seems to be picking up. Ella has flirted off and on with Andrew Copeland, but in recent days he is turning up the heat. They have been good friends for a long time now and Ella knows she can always rely on Andrew for a shoulder to lean on. But maybe, just maybe, he is starting to realize that when she blushes around him, it means something more than just friendship.

Andrew Copeland has a good life and he has never had a difficult time with women. They seem to fall into his arms in droves and it makes for a very easy love life. But lately, Andrew has been craving something more and the woman who has caught his eye is Ella, his friend. Taking things to the next level between them could be a bad decision, or it could be something that will radically change their lives for the better.
INSIDE OUT is the new book in Lauren Dane's Brown Siblings series. It is another scorcher of a story, with the emotional intensity high through the course of the story. Unfortunately, I did find the book to be a bit of a slow starter, but readers familiar with the series will want to stick it out. There are plenty of reappearances of characters from earlier in the series, and even continuations of storylines started in earlier books. Andrew and Ella's storyline stands very well on its own, but readers new to the series may get bogged down at first with all the characters, particularly all the females whose names begin with E.

Lauren Dane skillfully builds Ella and Andrew’s relationship from friends to lovers. Quiet moments, laughter, and slow dancing all factor in, making this a very romantic story. Of course, there is a hard history for Ella to face and she has to consider, has she made a good choice with Andrew? Is he truly the man for her? As the story progresses, her fears and doubts will be put to rest in the best way possible.

INSIDE OUT tempts readers to take a chance on both Ella and Andrew. These two stand out just enough in their book to make it a compelling story.
