Publisher's Summary

Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age 24. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother. The medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had. Then the state took away her brother, now age 10. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home. When she's approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he's been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it's nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him. When he and his two brothers were six, eight, and 10, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they've tried to forget.

    Story
    "This is just wrong...."

    I did not like the story because it shows our society at its worse. I wish female writer's would write more empowering stories about young women. Showing how young women face obstacles that don't take away their self respect. The weak becoming prey is not romance to me.

    This girl who has lost a mother and can't afford to take care of herself and her brother. Then she is introduced into prostitution. I felt very sad for her situation. Then we have these creepy men who use the woman like toys.


    Sad...

    "it's a cliff-hanger"

    repetitive, unrealistic even for the genre, and a cliff-hanger to boot. not worth a credit or my time.

    "liked the story, didn't want it to end"

    the story was great. the narrator did her job at telling the story. she changed her voice for the different characters but I felt like I wanted more. they didn't come to life for me like other narrators can do. but all in all great spey and I can't wait for the others in the series.

    Story
    "Not your usual fairy tale... but not bad."
    Would you try another book from Melody Anne and/or Lily Swan?

    The rest of the series has not come out in audible. I did read the books though. I consider that book 1 and 2 could have been made only one. Even though the author got pretty bad reviews for the second book, I do not consider it was THAT crazy, but I do consider she could have finish the story only in one book, and take some of weirdness of the second book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The two main characters, had way more behind their stories that what people will think. I do think there is different kind of love story (with a happy ending after book 2). Not saying it may be very real... but it is a book after all.


    Any additional comments?

    THIS IS NOT A STAND ALONE BOOK. The end of the two main characters comes in book 2. Which is already published in kindle, but not in audible version.

    "Okay"

    The narrator was good but the story was just okay. For starters I didn't like Blake very much and I don't think he's good enough for Jewell. Will I read/listen to the follow up story? Not sure.
