Publisher's Summary

Gabby Sullivan learns in college that some things are impossible to control, and whenever life has spun out of control bad things seem to happen. She promises herself that she'll stay a safe distance from the top three culprits: Sex, Love, Relationships.

But some things are beyond control…Gabby handles her mom's death and brother's sudden abandonment just about as well as anyone could at the age of twelve. Left feeling alone, she finishes high school, developing a bit of a wild streak, and lives like there's no tomorrow. That is until an illness stops her in her tracks. Learning to control life around her becomes her comfort. With a visible scar that reminds her and the world that she beat the odds, it's impossible for her to put everything behind her, no matter how hard she tries.

The moment she sees Jason, she knows her life will never be the same. But she doesn't know why. He's everything she said she never wanted. He's cocky, arrogant, and infuriating. With his dazzling amber eyes, dark hair and chiseled features she can hardly remember where she's going, let alone where she's been and maybe that's a good thing. She begins to let him show her what life could be, if she really lived it.

Neither wants their past to define their future, but sometimes destiny has something else in store. It's only as their love grows and secrets are revealed that they realize a devastating connection from their past might actually tear them apart.

    Story
    "Ok read!"
    Where does Beyond Control rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not very good. The beginning was confusing and the narrator did nothing to bring the story to life for me.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Was left on the edge of my seat and biting my nails!


    Would you be willing to try another one of Pamela Lorence’s performances?

    No.


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

    It would make an interesting movie, but I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    This was ok. I really didn't like how the story started. I had to read all the snippets to found out what was going on at the beginning of the story. It starting getting better, and the end left me on the edge of my seat.

    Story
    "Sweet romance, good for traveling"

    This is one of those books that you can stop and start and not feel like you have missed a beat but still interesting enough that you will pick it up and continue to find out the rest of the story. It is part 1 in a series, so there are additional characters to be developed and stories yet to be explored, with a bit of a cliff hanger at the end, but the initial story at least seemed resolved.

    "An amazing and heartfelt love story"

    I absolutely loved Jason and Gabby's story. It is beautifully written and the author did an outstanding job constructing a believable world. I loved it so much I had to buy the second book in the series on my Kindle and it was just as outstanding. I'm patiently waiting for the third book in the series. Highly recommend if you enjoy a story that makes you think about the meaning of life and love.

    "Narrator was annoying"

    The narrator was far too chipper for the gravity of the book. The book itself was poorly written. Skip this book, it is so not worth the time.
