Choices can make or break you…

Lucy Fields has the fight of her life on her hands.
Emotionally broken.
Physically bruised.
Her heart destroyed.
Lucy will need to find her inner strength to battle a man that claims to love her.
A man that hurts her.
A man that punishes her.
A man that abuses her.

She wants to break free.
She wants to be strong.
She wants to leave her nightmare behind.
She doesn’t want to rely on anyone to save her, but sometimes we can’t survive our nightmares alone.
She wants to slay her monster.
She wants her life back.
She wants to take control.

Will Lucy escape her nightmare?
Will a long-time friend be the one to help and show her that true love still exists?
Or will Michael’s reign of terror leave her fighting for more than her freedom?

Taking Control is book two of The Control Duet.
*** Trigger warning: contains scenes of domestic abuse and violence***

Broken. Healing. Hope. 

What an emotional rollercoaster this book was! The presentation of what Lucy goes through is heartbreaking and well done. Miss Powell has such a way with words. Through her storytelling, she is able to elicit a range of emotions from readers. Anger and sadness are some but most of all, hope. I was all in my feelings with this book! I felt such compassion for Lucy because I have experienced something similar. I know I am not alone in this. The author is brave for taking on such a subject. Lucy’s journey is not an easy one and I was rooting for her all the way! You are strong!

This is a wonderful read. Make sure you have some tissues handy. You’ll definitely need them! A perfect follow up to the first book. I give this 5 stars.

Losing Control (The Control Duet Book 1) by Lindsey Powell – My Review

New Release!

Title: Losing Control (The Control Duet Book 1)

Author: Lindsey Powell

Release Date: November 3rd 2020

Genre: Domestic Thrillers, Romantic Suspense

A series of moments can change your life… And it isn’t until you are in too deep that you see how far you have fallen…

Lucy remembers the first hit as if it were yesterday.
The first time his hand connected with her cheek.
The first time that he caused her physical pain.
The first time that he shattered her already fragile heart.
He preyed on her vulnerability. He took her confidence away from her. He ruined her perfect ideas of a loving relationship.
She let him control her.
She let him abuse her.
She let him break her.
She doesn’t want to be this person.
She doesn’t want to be weak.
She needs to save herself, but to do that, she must understand why.
Why did she let him dictate?
Why did she let him hurt her?
Why did she lose control?

Will Lucy find the strength to leave a man that has destroyed the person she once was?
Or will it take a deeper love from a long-time friend to help her see that there is another way out?
A turbulent romance, a desire to find love, and a familiar face that may just be her saving grace.

Losing Control is book one of The Control Duet.

*** Trigger warning: contains scenes of domestic abuse and violence***

Touching. Heartbreaking. Emotional. 

You ever read a book that touches your soul? Losing Control is that book for me. I’ve been Lucy. A lot of what Lucy experiences resonated with me. There’s a pattern. You don’t see it until it’s too late. Many emotions such as anger and sadness were felt while reading. That’s a good thing! Miss Powell did an amazing job in channeling all the emotions and feelings that go into Lucy’s journey. It isn’t an easy topic and one that happens more than we care to admit. Bravo to the author for taking such a subject on! 

I highly recommend this book. This is powerful read and it’s wonderfully written. Make sure you have some tissues handy as this book may have you ugly crying! I give this 5 stars.

A Man Betrayed: (A Quinn Winters Novel) (Quinn Winters Series Book 3) by Ivy Love – My Review

Title:

A Man Betrayed: (A Quinn Winters Novel) (Quinn Winters Series Book 3)

Author: Ivy Love

Release Date: April 6th 2020

Genre: Romantic Suspense 

A new romantic suspense novel by Ivy Love.

All books in this series can be read as stand-alone books, but it is recommended to read them in order.

I wasn’t always a technical analyst for the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit.
I spent my life hunting the worst of the worst.
Then he came along.
First, he took my family.
Then he took my chance at love.
He’s taken everything I’ve ever cared about away from me.
Now, he’s trying to steal what’s left of me.
But, he doesn’t know who he’s messing with.
I’m hunting him now.
I’m taking back my life.

A Man Betrayed is a fast read filled with suspense! This is part of the Quinn Winters series but reads as a standalone. I enjoyed the story and the characters were good. It was everything that I’ve come to expect from Ivy Love. With a few surprises thrown in because that’s what she does. I LOVE Piper! She’s a fierce woman and I love it. I was hooked and read this book straight through. I couldn’t get enough! I highly recommend checking out the whole series! I give this 4 stars.
