Control - M.S. Willis WOW , I don't even know where to begin with this review. I started this book late yesterday afternoon and as you can see I am down with reading it already. Once I started reading it I could not put it down, and I stopped to sleep lol. This is an amazing Debut novel By M.S. Willis. She truly knows how to write a story. I was pulled in right from the start and did not look back at all. We meet Paige when she is 5 yrs old. her parents Own and operate a Center for abused and battered woman. It is there that Paige Meets Buddy, They become the best of friends and are always together, climbing tree's, and playing. Buddy has helped Paige with all of her cuts and bruises from playing. They form a bond like no other kids have ever. one day Buddy and his mom leave the center. Paige does not see him for a while, but then has a brief encounter with him again when she is 6 yrs old. They have to be separated again and Buddy makes a promise to Paige. “I promise, Paige. I promise that we will see each other again.”“I love you, Buddy,” I whispered. Buddy’s body shook with the force of his tears and he looked down at me. “I love you too, Paige.”We then meet Paige yrs later when she is 22 yrs old. She has grown into a great independent woman and is currently a PI investigator. She lives with her 2 best friends David, & Annie. then there is her friend Alex who she is friends with benefits. I absolutely LOVED David and his humor. He was such a strong character as a best friend for Paige. He was funny, but he was protective and humorous at times when it was necessary. One night she goes out to a bar called Tomb and this is where she meets Daemon one of the bouncers. Something pulls her to him and she can not explain it as she has spent years with herself closed off from all men and other people refusing to love anyone Because of what happened with Buddy.from there things progress and we get more into the life of Paige and Daemon's relationship. Something happens that brings them closer together by the end of the book. Without going into more detail then that because I do not want to ruin it for anyone. This book takes you on a ride like no other Book I have read thus far. There is chemistry, there is humor. there is drama, there is steam, but in the end Willis has wrote an amazing story. it has intense moments as well. I can not wait to see where this series goes and I will be anxiously waiting for book 2. No there is NO cliffhanger per say but it does leaving you wanting more right now, because you will want to find out what happens with Paige and Daemon. "Daemon and Chris had both played their cards in two very different games, but I would now take control of those decks. Both men would soon learn what I was truly capable of, they would learn that they had underestimated the woman within me. Although their intentions were very different, they had both made their positions known. This was not the end to the games that had been played against me…it was only just the beginning."Want to know who Chris is? LOL your going to have to read the book, you all know I do not like to give to much away in my reviews !!!!!!!Book Blurb: Paige Stone lived anything but a normal childhood. Having been raised around an abused women's shelter operated by her parents, Paige was a constant witness to the tragedy and heartache suffered by women at the hands of the men they trusted.
