REVIEW: Control by Laura Marie Altom


Laura Marie Altom’s heart-stirring new romance will have you believing in the power of love—and passion—to heal even the most wounded souls.
Never again. Fleeing her hometown to escape an abusive marriage, Ella Patton swears she has surrendered to a man for the last time. But while living under a new name, she meets a kind, handsome stranger who seems different—and will be moving on soon, making Ella reckless enough to break her rules. With a kiss, the stranger opens the door to desires Ella believed she would never know. Then he makes an unexpected proposal.
A dot-com billionaire from humble beginnings, Liam Stone is a man whose past has made him compassionate yet guarded—much like the beautiful, secretive woman he stumbles upon in a remote Southern town. Though he intends only a dalliance, when the time comes to return home to San Francisco, Liam cannot bear the thought of leaving her behind. But when he tries to entice her to join him, he finds the tables turning dizzingly fast. Suddenly a little seduction becomes a huge battle for one thing: control.

Ella and Liam’s story continues in Possess, coming December 2014!


I would first like to thank Random House and NetGalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.

My heart breaks for Ella. The things she went through before meeting Liam couldn't have been easy, but it also shows her strength to be able get away from the situation. Though she makes a few choices that aren't always very smart, she does make sure that they are things that are best for her. I like the fact that she proves to Liam time and again that his money aren't what attracts him to her but more of his humble beginnings. 

I have to say there are times where I really like Liam, but others where I find him to be a bit of an ass. Because of the way he can sometimes be I kind of don't think he is proving himself to be the best thing for Ella.  At the same time I can see how not knowing how to win her over, since the tricks that he has used in the past don't work on her, can frustrate him. For a man who becomes used to getting whatever he wants, she poses such a fun challenge for him.

Happy Reading... Adri
