Control

When Madison Morris decides to hire an assistant to help run her naughty bookshop, she gets a lot more than she bargained for. Aggressive Andy doesn't quite make the grade, but continues to push her buttons in other areas, while uptight and utterly repressed Gabriel can't quite take Madison's training techniques. One makes her grasp control, while the other makes her lose it. But the lines are blurring and she's no longer sure who's leading and who's following. In the midst of kinky threesomes and power plays, can Madison work out what she really wants?

What the Critics Say

"The title needs to be changed to 'The Ultimate Manual of Kinky Sex, BDSM, and Control for Dummies!' If this is your first time crossing the line into the Dark Side, then I recommend this book as a guide!" (Night Owl Reviews)

"This book is a fabulously sexy tale that made my palms sweaty and my heart race. I grew to love both Madison and Gabe and, although I didn’t agree with some of the decisions that they made, I wholeheartedly routed for a situation where they could both be happy." (Scorching Book Reviews)

    "Disappointing narrator bad story"
    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed with the story and narrator. I lost my control and gave up on in with-in 3 chapters. The narrator was very breathy, slow and boring whilst the story was poorly written with no real back bone to pull me into it. Definitely not worth the credit i spent on it.

    Story
    "I loved listening to this!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gabe - he's such a precious gem. I adore him.


    What does Janice Enright bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice and accent is stellar. She sounds so prim and proper, but it just adds an extra layer of naughty to the story. She says words like "Tomato" and "seedy" in a delightful way.

    Her male voice is awesome, as well. "You want it you slutty little bookworm." (that did make me giggle)

    This is the first audible book I've listened to that I really loved hearing.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I need to admit I'm partial to Stein. I've read all of her books, and I love her stream of conscious writing. This was my favorite book of hers (though there are several favorites) and in the future I desperate hope that Janice Enright does all of her books. Just a perfect match.

    Story
    "Erotica with characters that grow on you"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone interested in good erotica, with character development I would recommend this book to. The story line is in the first person Madison want to hire a helper for her book shop, which sells erotic books. She is very sexually active and one fellow Adam is very aggressive, but she really loves that. Another fellow who she hires, Gabriel is very shy and withdrawn. Madison finds that to be a challenge and wants to bring him out of his shell. Over a period of time each of these characters grow and you become involved with who they are and why they are that way. I wasn't sure I'd enjoy, but I really did.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were many favorite parts, but one of them was when Madison found out that Gabriel was a virgin. There were many more but I don't want to spoil the book


    Which character – as performed by Janice Enright – was your favorite?

    Madison, since the book is read in first person. But she does do the male voice fairly well and you always know who's speaking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Never judge a book by it's cover."


    Any additional comments?

    Surprisingly well written story about characters with flaws, who learn to deal with them and grow to understand that sometimes you have to trust.

    "No Interaction"

    This book seemed to take place all in the head of the book store owner; it's one long monologue of the main character's feelings and thoughts. How horny she is, who she desires, what she wants (me,me,me). No details of age, appearance, back history to set the story in my mind. Just lots of rambling.
