About the Book
Author: Eve Dangerfield
Charlotte Bell is a typical yoga teacher. She’s friendly, earnest and has some slight masochistic tendencies. After a painful break-up she’s determined to address her long-denied kinks with the kind of man she’s always been too terrified to approch. Her friends have select James Hunter a male model turned corporate suit and after a ‘chance’ encounter at a party, James agrees to school Charlie in the harsher side of sex. He knows she’s too genuine, too kind, too everything for a guy like him but he won’t turn down an opportunity to break in a starry-eyed submissive like her. Yet as Charlie and James embark on a strings-free sexual relationship they discover a connection that runs deeper than either of them could have imagined.
Refreshing take on the good girl redeems bad boy with a heart of gold. Believable and very likable characters. Good writing. Fantastic sex scenes. No white knight to the rescue oh my I almost lost her I know now that I love her here. Just two people who weren’t looking for forever but found it anyway. No overnight life changing epiphanies but actual slow realistic falling in love.
As an independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock, I give this one four fangs. Its an awesome, quick read for a weekend. Sex is steamy and explicit and there is some serious language and rough sex as well so be careful agewise.
Eve Dangerfield has loved romance novels since she first started swiping her grandmother’s paperbacks at the age of fourteen. Now she writes her own unapologetically sexy tales about complex women and gorgeous-but-slightly-tortured men. Eve currently lives in Melbourne with her lovely sister, extremely chill boyfriend and a rabbit named Billy. When she’s not writing she can usually be found drinking, dancing or making a mess. Often all at once. Degrees of Control is her first novel.
