Control by Laura Marie Altom Review

Shamed # 1
By: Laura Marie Altom
Releasing September 16th, 2014


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.

Wow! This book is amazing and now I am desperate for book number 2, unfortunately I don't have those details but I wish I did
This book is ultimately about two very damaged people, one very successful and the other in hiding. They are attracted to each other, but as you would expect from two damaged people, their highs are as high as the tops of mountains and their lows are lower than the deepest crater. Add to that some crazy arse friends who create mayhem and destruction everywhere they go.
I honestly can’t even tell you just how much I truly LOVE Ella and Liam’s characters, truly this book is completely mind blowing!
This book is amazing and I cried all the way through the book, the story is amazing, the writing smooth and the characters are whole, and you all know I can't stand half-baked characters. Control is truly a fabulous book, but there is one thing I HATE about the ends one a cliffhanger!!! So now I am going to be emotionally wrecked till the next book is released.
I give Control an amazing 9.5 out of 10.
