To save her failing family empire, the stunning yet feisty heiress Jada Sinclair must find a way to keep the Sinclair Winery in the family. She is barely keeping things afloat due to her father's bad business decisions. The only person who can help her family is the multi-billionaire tycoon Max Brunetti.

My Review

Wow.. What a tornado of a book!

Control me is a scorching hot novel and well a freaking tornado!

The plot is very intriguing and mysterious, as we don’t know where we will end up and how our characters will be when they actually get there. Not to mention that Jada and Max are absolutely freaking delicious characters, who keep the readers on their toes. We never know what they’ll do and we never know how they will react.

Jada is a beautiful young woman, inside and out. She is loyal to her family and friends. She’s so much fun to hang out with, as you never know what will come out of her mouth. She certainly tames Max; that’s for sure..

Max is such a dickhead in the beginning. He only speaks about the winery or how hot Jada is. Well he continues to praise Jada’s umm hotness, but he finally (slowly oh very slowly) admits to himself and other, including Jada, that the winery is nothing in front of her! And that’s what I liked the most about him. Even in the beginning when he was still an asshole, he always cared about Jada and her needs. He always took care of her.

So, yeah Max is totally one of my favorite guys EVER!

The story was good and flowing nicely. There are some parts in the story that don’t sit well with me. Without giving any spoilers, I’ll say that many things can be kept secret, but some others just can’t.  And second of all, there was one inconsistency. Again, I can’t say more, but let’s just say that I was surprised how one event got handled, especially seeing it by the legal view…


Control me is an explosive read..You will be hooked on it from the first pages and won’t be able to put it down. So, I suggest you clear one evening or night and dedicate it to this winner here..And I’d also suggest you don’t read it in public..Yeah it is THAT HOT!!!

So, 4.5 Sparkling Stars go to this fantastic debut of Elle Raven, Control me!


The Barossa Series #2 : Initiate me (even the title is tingling me!) is coming out soon and it focuses on………… Zane, our sexy cop, and…….. Mia, who is naturally amazing !!!!

He didn’t answer me. He only stared at me, his eyes squinting.

“I’m not joking, Jada; I’ve had enough of your crap. I want you to take off those white, skimpy shorts and show me that ass now.”

“No. Fucking. Way.” I ran to the barn door, pulled it wide open and walked away towards the main house. I noticed as I bypassed the kitchen that Max was following me. I did not want to deal with him right now; my blood was boiling. I took the stairs two at a time, but I could feel he was catching up to me.

Shit. My heart nearly beat out of my chest. Adrenaline soared through my body, and I was panting.

As I opened the door to my old bedroom, I felt a strong set of arms circle my waist. I screamed, but he didn’t care; he lifted me off my feet and threw me on the bed not caring how I landed.
