Control | [Kayla Perrin]

Control

Their romance was a modern-day fairy tale: handsome older millionaire falls for struggling young waitress. Robert swept Elsie off her feet - and into his bed - put a huge diamond on her finger and spirited her away in his private jet destined for happily-ever-after. Eight years later, Elsie Kolstadt realizes the clock has struck midnight. The five-star restaurants, exclusive address and exotic vacations can no longer make up for Robert's desire to control everything.

Publisher's Summary

Their romance was a modern-day fairy tale: handsome older millionaire falls for struggling young waitress. Robert swept Elsie off her feet - and into his bed - put a huge diamond on her finger and spirited her away in his private jet destined for happily-ever-after.

Eight years later, Elsie Kolstadt realizes the clock has struck midnight. The five-star restaurants, exclusive address and exotic vacations can no longer make up for Robert's desire to control everything. From her hair to her music, Robert has things the way he wants them. No matter what.

But it's Robert's ultimate, unforgivable manipulation that finally shocks Elsie into action. Though divorce would strip her of everything, she can't live under his roof any more. Making her decision easier is Dion Carter, a high-school football coach with a heart of gold and a body of sculpted steel. Suddenly Elsie is deep in a steamy affair that could cost her everything - because Robert will stop at nothing to keep her under his thumb.

    "Awsome!"

    This is the first book that I've read by Kayla Perrin and it's great. Some may think this book is too explicit, however I think Ms. Perrin was being real with her scenes. Hats off too you Kayla, you defiantly have a new fan.

    "It was OK"

    This listen was ok but I think it could've had more suspense and less bedroom details...if you're looking for erotica, this is your pick.

    Story
    "It's a decent story with a good narrator."

    OK overall I liked this story, good character development and interesting story line, It just seems like the ending was so rushed, and I hate when the main character does something so completely stupid and unnecessarily puts her life in jeopardy. I'm always concerned when I download a book with black characters that they're going to make the dialect so obvious and I hate that! Luckily this narrator doesn't make that mistake and that makes me very happy.

    "a steamy sexual story with a good plot/soryline"

    This book is a must read, the sexual content was tremendous with a combination of sexuality and love to its full extent. The storyline kept me captivated and the characters came to life. I'm a new fan- keep writing Kayla!

    Story
    "I thought it would never end"
    Would you try another book from Kayla Perrin and/or Madison Vaughn?

    No


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I could have made it much better. It had a decent beginning. But it took forever for something to happen in this story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't have one.


    What character would you cut from Control?

    I didn't like any of them.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was good. It was the writing that was lacking.

    "open story ending"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    yes, but it could have been so much better


    If you’ve listened to books by Kayla Perrin before, how does this one compare?

    yes, i like that one better


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Madison Vaughn?

    sure


    Do you think Control needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    yes because, so many things left undone spike, her pregnant friend, and Dana so many things unanswered. but like i said it had been so much better,

    "The narrator has a nice soothing but crisp voice."

    The book was pretty predictable. The character sometimes unbelievable in her naivete. Otherwise it's a decent listen.

    Too much sex and not enough plot...don't waste your credits unless that's what you're looking for.

    "Don't waste the credit"

    This was a terrible book!!!! You really can't get into the story because of all the nasty sex every two minutes. Don't get me wrong I like a good romance book, but this is no romance this is nasty porn. If you are looking for something dirty this is it for you, but if you want more out of a book, don't waste your credit.
