Control by M. S. Willis Review

From GoodReads:

"Paige Stone lived anything but a normal childhood. Having been raised around an abused women's shelter operated by her parents, Paige was a constant witness to the tragedy and heartache suffered by women at the hands of the men they trusted. Out of refusal to ever allow that to happen to her,... Paige built walls around her heart at a young age. Those walls were only fortified when tragedy struck on her sixth birthday and took from her the only friend and love she knew. Now at 22 years old, and working as a private investigator, Paige is driven by a deep need for strength, independence and a stubborn refusal to accept help from another person. Surrounding herself with her three best friends, Paige never assumed that the autonomy she had worked so hard to build could be challenged.

That was, until Paige met Daemon Pierce.

Mysterious, strong-willed, and breathtakingly beautiful, Daemon seemed to instantly know Paige better than she knew herself. Paige is disgusted by Daemon's reputation as a womanizer, but becomes intrigued when she is unable to discover his background. Paige's curiosity about Daemon proves to be her downfall as she is swept up in his charming and arrogant pursuit to possess her in every possible way.

For the first time in her life, Paige will struggle for control while Daemon slowly dismantles the walls she has built around herself. Only time will tell who will be victorious in their battle of wills as Daemon teaches Paige the weaknesses within herself that she never knew existed. Paige stays one step ahead in her struggle against Daemon's controlling ways, but when tragedy strikes her life a second time, she has to choose; will she put her life in danger, or will she finally accept a helping hand? 

***Content Warning - This is a new adult fiction with mature themes. It contains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of sexual violence.***"

My Thoughts:

Control falls into the "Read this before I started the blog" category. However, with Conflict now out, and Conquer out within the next couple of months. I figured I would make this my "YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!" post. 

Control, is amazing. There are so many layers to it, so much backstory, and so many awesome characters. It is impossible not to love this book. 

Between character walls being broken down, real to life situations, and hidden secrets, Control delivers an amazing story. Definitely a "well, I did NOT see that coming!" book. 

Paige is amazing, strong, and a perfect main character. Her friends are a perfect addition to the story. And Daemon Price is exactly who she needed. 

Control delivers a huge twist (or like.. 5 of them), and a SUPER mega cliff hanger ending (which, by the way, I was NOT aware of when I read this). Two of my favorite things!

This is M. S. Willis' Debut Novel, and I can NOT wait to see more of her books in the future! Amazingly well written, and a story that keeps you turning pages until 5am (yes.. that happened). 

I actually messaged her on facebook the second I finished Control, begging for the release date of Conflict, and it is finally out!! 

Here are the links to both books:

Conquer is not out currently out for pre-order, but the expected release is September 2013. I ALREADY can't wait, and I haven't even finished Conflict yet!
