BLOG TOUR REVIEW + GIVEAWAY ~Taking Control by Jen Frederick~

Title: Taking Control
Author: Jen Frederick
Series: Kerr Chronicles #2
Release Date: September 2, 2014

Rating: 5 AMAZING Stars!
I thought I needed only one thing in my life--the money and power to crush one man. But the moment I laid eyes on Victoria Corielli, my thirst for revenge was replaced by my craving for her.

No rule would keep me away; no obstacle too large to overcome. Not her will, not our differing social positions, not my infamous past. When she lost everything, I helped her pick up the pieces. When she trusted me with everything, she sealed her fate.

I've convinced Victoria she can put her heart in my hands. Now I have to protect it--from her shady stepfather and my business rivals, from enemies known and hidden. I'll do anything to keep her. And I might have to prove it, because now Victoria''s risking more than her heart to be with me; she's risking her life.
I LOVE this series. It's the perfect blend of erotica and a thrilling story. When we left Ian and Tiny in Losing Control, there were still questions to be answered. When we pick up in Taking Control, we see that Tiny is having trouble adjusting to life with its recent changes, including living with Ian. Although she may love him to the ends of the earth, she can't get used to his dedication, overwhelming love, and most of all the financial support. Suffice it to say between these two there is a lot of tug-o-war. Yet, at their very core as a couple they are completely in sync, and definitely beloved form a reader's standpoint. I have to say Ian could very well be one of my favorite heroes of all time. He can be sweet, intense, dirty-mouthed, devoted, cunning, and the list goes on and one. This man can melt you, inside and out, in a heartbeat.

What makes this book so worthwhile, in addition to the amazing chemistry between Ian and Tiny, is the story. It develops in so many different avenues without becoming too much. It never occurred to me that it was too busy, and the characters were being pulled in too many different directions. It flowed effortlessly, and with a terrific style that kept me amazed and engaged throughout the book. Ian and Tiny, definitely have their work cut out for them. There are too many evils coming at them at once. It seemed almost inevitable that something terrible was going to happen. But I never knew where it was going to come from. You add in the secondary characters and you also have the makings of some very witty moments that will steal a laugh or several from you.

If it were possible to make a reader sit down and give a book a chance it would probably be this one. It's all encompassing of what I look for in my books. The heat level is off the charts, the depth of the characters, especially Ian, is refreshing, and the book as a whole left my with warm fuzzies. I do highly recommend, the Kerr Chronicles as a duo series. They raise the bar for contemporary erotica/new adult books. I saw a few stepping stones being formed while reading Taking Control and I sincerely hope Jen Frederick decides to pull us into this world with a few of the secondary characters. I'm dying to know if Jake, Steve, and Kaga find their happily ever afters, and with who!!

Happy Reading!

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.
