Review of Control by Laura Marie Altom

Never again. Fleeing her hometown to escape an abusive marriage, Ella Patton swears she has surrendered to a man for the last time. But while living under a new name, she meets a kind, handsome stranger who seems different—and will be moving on soon, making Ella reckless enough to break her rules. With a kiss, the stranger opens the door to desires Ella believed she would never know. Then he makes an unexpected proposal.

A dot-com billionaire from humble beginnings, Liam Stone is a man whose past has made him compassionate yet guarded—much like the beautiful, secretive woman he stumbles upon in a remote Southern town. Though he intends only a dalliance, when the time comes to return home to San Francisco, Liam cannot bear the thought of leaving her behind. But when he tries to entice her to join him, he finds the tables turning dizzyingly fast. Suddenly a little seduction becomes a huge battle for one thing: control.

Possess, Book two is even better and available now for pre-order!
Loved it!  Thank God I'm a reviewer, cuz this book stops in a pretty harsh spot.  It was 2 am when I finished this book, and the only thing that kept me from starting the next one is that I needed sleep and I had to get up early the next morning.  OMG, I laughed so hard with this book, Willow was just wow...  I didn't cry, but the emotional trauma of the characters was just WOW!  I'm tempted to give this a four, book two was that much better, but this one was awesome too...  I have LOTS of comments in my kindle from this one, it's crazy.
Laura Marie Altom is the author over 40 books in three different genres. She's been happily married to her college sweetheart (Go Hogs!) for 25 years and believes their boy/girl twins actively plot to drive her crazy!
Now that her kiddos are in college, Laura spends her days contentedly writing and chasing after the family menagerie of pets, ranging from a mutt named Sweet Pea, a mini-long-haired dachshund named Cocoa, a Yorkie named Daisy, and Domino - a black-and-white stealth cat she rarely sees. There are also plenty of ducks and geese who live in the backyard pond but would like to live in the house!
When night falls, Laura steals a few romantic moments for herself and her own hunky cover stud!
Laura loves hearing from readers!
