Losing Control is LIVE!
I’d do anything to keep my mother alive.Anything, including ask Ian Kerr for help. I don’t know much about him, except that he has more money than some small countries. And he’s willing to spend it on me. Just one catch: there’s a string attached attached, and not just the one I feel pulling me into his arms and his bed. There’s also the plan for revenge he wants my help with.
Every time he says my name, it makes my body shiver and my heart stutter. I know he’s going to wreck me, know there won’t be anything left of me but lust and sensation by the time he’s done with me, but even though I can see the heartbreak coming towards me like a train, ready to crash into me, I can’t get out of the way. I want what he makes me feel. Want what he’s offering.
This may have started out as something to save my mother, but now…now it’s about what he makes me feel. I’m in danger of losing everything that’s important. Worse? Ian's whispered words and hot caresses are making me believe that's okay.
“Let me be perfectly frank with you, Victoria. There are lots of things that I’d like you to do for me. Some of them involve you on your knees. Others require you bent over a table. All of them require me to be between your legs. But I don’t pay for that.”
“No, I wouldn’t think you would,” I say faintly. No one has ever spoken to me in such a graphic and frank manner and I don’t know how to respond—at least not verbally. My body is reacting by getting hot and tight.
He nods then in confirmation that I’ve heard him. “I don’t dip my pen in the company ink. Nothing good comes of that. So let me ask you again. Are you certain you wouldn’t rather let me take you out to dinner and then home, where I would make you come so hard that you wouldn’t be able to remember your own name let alone that you have money troubles?”
I’m finding it difficult to breathe normally and it’s hard to remember exactly why I’m resisting him so hard. His hand has moved from my waist to my hip and his fingers are curling around my ass and pulling me close as possible despite the bike frame between us. I can even feel his erection against my hip. “The money troubles will still be there, regardless of my memory,” I manage to choke out.
His eyes narrow because he doesn’t like my rejections. “You should know that when small prey runs away, it only whets the appetite of a predator. Someday, Victoria Corielli, I’m going to get you to say yes.”
He pushes the bike frame upright and my body reluctantly follows.
“I’ll be in touch,” he says and then turns and walks away. I stare after him like a dumbass for at least five minutes.”
From time to time I get blown away by a new book.... I read at least a book a day so when a book is this awesome, I feel like celebrating. Because I read so many books, it is a rare circumstance when I am blown away. I have read about every plotline under the sun, so when an author comes up with something unique and interesting, I definitely feel like celebrating.
Jen Frederick's LOSING CONTROL is being released as a FREE serial through her newsletter (Newsletter Sign Up: http://bit.ly/1m5knql). A full version is scheduled for release June 16. She kindly shared a copy of the complete novel with me and I thank her for this gift. If you have not been introduced to her genius, this is the perfect time to try this gem and I am convinced she will become your favorite author too.
Here we have Tiny (Victoria) who is fighting to keep her mother alive while she fights cancer. Tiny will do just about anything to help sustain her mother during this re-occurrence of the cancer. Being dyslexic and virtually unable to read and write, she supports them by being a courier. She not only works during the day making deliveries, but now has taken a second job making deliveries for her stepbrother's shady business. She is desperate. And then she meets Ian Kerr, super billionaire.
Ian... what can I say about him other than her is complicated, full of secrets, player, and with revenge up his sleeve. When he comes into Tiny's life, they both know he will change her life forever. This character is riveting. He is one of those men you meet in a book that make you wish her were real and in your life. Tiny is the perfect conduit to carry out his ploy for revenge... or is she?
Note that this book continues in book #2 TAKING CONTROL due out late Summer 2014. There are no cliffhangers here but you will definitely be left yearning for more.
