She’s the one woman I should stay away from, but I can’t help myself...
They say being a billionaire has its perks, but I hardly notice. After being widowed, my beautiful little girl is the most important thing to me. Esme hasn’t spoken to anyone but me since her mother’s death. When she goes missing, I’m thisclose to losing it.
When Esme turns up safe and sound with a cute waitress, I’m ready to give the lady a reward and be on our way, but then Esme speaks to her. It’s simple, a mere “thank you”, but I know I can’t let the waitress get away.
Melanie is nothing like the woman who throw themselves at me. Her big brown eyes take my breath away from the minute I lay eyes on her. She fills out her pink waitress uniform with curves I can’t wait to get my hands on. I can’t get her out of my head.
Melanie’s bringing my little girl out of her shell, which means she’s strictly off limits. But having her under my roof and close enough to touch is too much of a temptation. My legendary control is beginning to slip and I don’t know how much longer I can resist breaking every rule I have.
Mr. Control is a HOT romance with heart that will tug at your heartstrings, melt your panties, and leave you begging for more. HEA included! This single dad romance is approximately 62,000 words!
This story was good but not great. I really felt like this had great potential. But what really set me apart from loving it was the way the hero was. One minute he was sweet and understanding, the next he was going off on the heroine for one thing or another because of HIS trust issues. I didn't really feel he apologized to her and made her really feel how...sorry he was for jumping down her throat for stuff that another person did, to set her up. And it bugged me that the heroine didn't really tell him how hurt or angry she was over his actions. I think she forgave him WAY to quickly.
I really liked the plot. It has AMAZING potential. I liked that the heroine was down on her luck and the idea of having a sexy billionaire come swooping in to save her and give her an amazing job with great pay made me want to swoon. But the trust issues that our hero had going was a real turn off for me.
I give Mr. Control TWO STARS! I think if the hero had less anger and jealousy and trust issues this story could EASILY have been a four or five stars. I still think its worth giving a read though because there were parts that were pretty good and the sex...DEFINITELY worth it!
