Welcome to a world few people know. A world where the hottest bedroom desires become a reality and where good girls like Victoria “Tiny” Corielli shed their sweetness for carnal, bad-girl pleasures.
Victoria nurses her mother through cancer treatments and works long hours as a New York City bike courier to pay for the roof over their heads. When a suspiciously high-paying delivery job thrusts her into the arms of impossibly attractive businessman Ian Kerr, Victoria is sorely tempted to enjoy his attentions and his chiseled body, if only to forget her responsibilities for a while…no matter the cost.
Kerr seems to have it all: money, power, and charisma to spare. What he doesn’t have: revenge on an old nemesis, but he intends to get it. Kerr is prepared to cast innocent Victoria as the lure in his vengeful plot. Yet the more they explore midtown Manhattan—and each other—the more she means to Ian. Will it be too late for him to stop the dangerous plan he’s already put into motion?
Revised edition: This edition of Losing Control includes editorial revisions.
Losing Control ended up being nothing like I was expecting, but after reading Revealed to Him by Ms. Frederick I couldn’t not read Ian and Tiny’s story.
Victoria aka Tiny has had some rough times. A bike courier in NY she’s been struggling to keep a roof over her and her ailing mother’s heads. When her mom’s health takes a turn for the worse, she accepts some off the books deliveries to keep them afloat. This puts her in the path of Ian Kerr. Mysterious businessman and hot as fork hunk.
A chance encounter is the changing point of Tiny’s life. Ian is enchanted by her artlessness and genuine personality and though they start off with a possible business arrangement, the more time they spend together, the more he doesn’t want to go through with his plans.
I really liked Tiny. She was a tough, no bullshit young woman who wasn’t afraid to do what was necessary to help her mom. Her devotion to her was commendable. Her learning disability was both the source of her insecurities and the cornerstone of her badass attitude. I loved the way how little by little she stopped being skittish of Ian’s pursuit and eventually surrendered to his genuine interest.
It’s plain to see that Ian had one agenda going in, but it changed along the way of getting to know Victoria. Mysterious, sexy, alpha and OTT, just how I like my millionaires, he was too dreamy for words.
With revenge plots, unexpected feelings, scorching hot sextivities and an endearingly in-love possessive hunk, I was all kinds of engaged with Losing Control from start to finish. I can’t wait to dive into the second part of the story and see how everything unfolds!!!
