K. Bromberg always does it for me! I loved this series and I was impatently waiting for Desi’s story since we meet her sassy self on the first book. And of course, I knew Kristy would make her justice and write a beautiful love story for her. And also create a swoony alpha that would steal Desi’s (and mine’s) heart. Oh yes, this was definitely a good read!
So, Control is a novella coming from Kristy’s Everyday Heroesseries and, as I said, it tells the story of Desi Whitman (Em’s sassy BFF) and Reznor Mayne (a new to town sexy SWAT). Desi has actually experienced something that makes her insecure, especially around men, and now she is joining a self-defense class. Obviously, her hot instructor is Reznor. They start kind of badly but with a whole lot of sexual tension. That chemistry explodes and that becomes so much more. Something that neither Desi or Reznor were expecting: a beautiful connection that transforms into love.
“What are we doing here, Desi?”
“You’re going to kiss me and make me forget my bad dream, and then I’m going to kiss you back to help you forget about yours.”
Gah! K. Bromberg surely knows how to write a gripping love story, even when it’s a short one! I loved how she developed Desi and Reznor’s relationship: from the very start to the very end. I loved seeing all of Desi’s sides and how perfect Reznor is for her. He is such a wonderful hero! Reznor is protective, a pure alpha male and oh-so-sexy! The chemistry between these two was mindblowing and when vulnerability and feelings got in the mix it got even better. I was so happy to read how these two find each other and they fall in love.
“I’ve fallen for you, Desi Whitman, and I’m back here to chase you.”
Therefore, I am rating Control with 4 STARS because it was simply a great novella to read. Kristy’s writing is one of my favorites and I adore all the characters she writes. Desi and Reznor were no exception to that! heir relationship developed wonderfully and they got quite a beautiful ending. Yes, I do wish this short story was longer because I loved it and yes, I do wish it had an epilogue to wrap everything up better. But leaving that aside, Control was simply fantastic! Definitely recommend reading this.
New York Times bestselling author K. Bromberg writes contemporary novels that contain a mixture of sweet, emotional, a whole lot of sexy, and a little bit of real. She likes to write strong heroines, and damaged heroes who we love to hate and hate to love.
She’s a mixture of most of her female characters: sassy, intelligent, stubborn, reserved, outgoing, driven, emotional, strong, and wears her heart on her sleeve. All of which she displays daily with her husband and three children where they live in Southern California.
On a whim, K. Bromberg decided to try her hand at this writing thing. Since then she has written The Driven Series (Driven, Fueled, Crashed, Raced, Aced), the standalone Driven Novels (Slow Burn, Sweet Ache, Hard Beat, and Down Shift), and a novella (UnRaveled).
