REVIEW ~Losing Control by Jen Frederick~

Title: Losing Control
Author: Jen Frederick
Series: Kerr Chronicles #1
Release Date: June 16th, 2014

Rating: 5 STARS!
I’d do anything to keep my mother alive.

Anything, including ask Ian Kerr for help. I don’t know much about him, except that he has more money than some small countries. And he’s willing to spend it on me. Just one catch: there’s a string attached, and not just the one I feel pulling me into his arms and his bed. There’s also the plan for revenge he wants my help with.

Every time he says my name, it makes my body shiver and my heart stutter. I know he’s going to wreck me, know there won’t be anything left of me but lust and sensation by the time he’s done with me, but even though I can see the heartbreak coming towards me like a train, ready to crash into me, I can’t get out of the way. I want what he makes me feel. Want what he’s offering.

This may have started out as something to save my mother, but now…now it’s about what he makes me feel. I’m in danger of losing everything that’s important. Worse? Ian's whispered words and hot caresses are making me believe that's okay.
Losing Control quickly became one of my favorite reads of the year. It was the first book of Jen Frederick's that I've read, but you can bet I'll be returning for more. The beauty of this book is that it ripped me apart and put me back together, but left me wanting so much more. Ian Kerr is my absolute FAVORITE! Hot, dirty-mouthed, sweet, alpha. Gah, I love him! He takes obsession to a level I loved. It wasn't creepy, it was simply amazing how consumed he seemed to be by Tiny. Their chemistry blew my mind. After a tough game of ping pong in the beginning they just feel together. Gave in. Went all out. It was amazing to read.

Tiny's had a sh-t hand dealt to her. Stuck between a rock and a hard place she's forced to go to questionable lengths in order to save her mother. Circumstances bring her to Ian Kerr's door. From there it's a snowball effect of love, lust and every other emotion. But Ian can't keep their business relationship when he feels so much for Tiny. He can't bear to use her like this. So he pull his Ian Kerr magic and once again gives Tiny a hand up in the world. One that she is extremely reluctant to take, but at the end of the day his frustratingly logical explanations and the way he takes care of her (when no one else ever has) does her in. Will it all be too much in the end. Will the high wear off their relationship, and will another tragedy strike down Tiny and destroy her?

I was utterly absorbed by this book. Losing Control is one of those books that had me huddled in bed all day on a Saturday. I couldn't put it down. Ian and Tiny didn't sneak in, more like barged in and screamed their arrival into my heart. I felt everything they felt. I'll be honest- because of the subject matter surround Tiny's mother I almost had to sit this one out. But Jen seemed to weave this story to slowly consume her readers until they had no other choice but to fall in love with it. I can't suggest enough, and I am literally bouncing in my seat to see what happens with Tiny and Ian. So, I'll be over here waiting to hear all of the swoons and sighs as you experience Ian Kerr for the first time :)

Happy Reading!
