Image of Inside Out (A Brown Family Novel)

Catch up with the Brown family and friends in this intense love story. Less sexually charged than some of her previous books, Dane’s latest focuses on relationships: lovers, family and friends. Ella and Cope, two people with confidence issues, struggle to form a relationship. If you don’t think you can relate to characters with tattoos and piercings, think again — this is a powerful story of love.

After almost being killed in an abusive relationship, Ella is slowly making progress in returning to a “normal” life. She has known Andrew Copeland for years, and has fantasized about him during that time. When Cope asks Ella on a date, their relationship starts to move beyond friendship. They have a powerful physical attraction, but Ella doesn’t trust her judgment or her reactions. Cope has always been a player — can he handle a serious relationship? Add to the mix an estrangement in the Copeland family and the risky pregnancy of a friend, and there are a lot of issues to deal with. (HEAT, Nov., 320 pp., $15.00)
