Blog Tour & Giveaway for Control By MS Willis


***Content Warning - This is a new adult fiction with mature themes. It contains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of sexual violence.***

Paige Stone lived anything but a normal childhood. Having been raised around an abused women's shelter operated by her parents, Paige was a constant witness to the tragedy and heartache suffered by women at the hands of the men they trusted. Out of refusal to ever allow that to happen to her,... Paige built walls around her heart at a young age. Those walls were only fortified when tragedy struck on her sixth birthday and took from her the only friend and love she knew. Now at 22 years old, and working as a private investigator, Paige is driven by a deep need for strength, independence and a stubborn refusal to accept help from another person. Surrounding herself with her three best friends, Paige never assumed that the autonomy she had worked so hard to build could be challenged.

That was, until Paige met Daemon Pierce.

Mysterious, strong-willed, and breathtakingly beautiful, Daemon seemed to instantly know Paige better than she knew herself. Paige is disgusted by Daemon's reputation as a womanizer, but becomes intrigued when she is unable to discover his background. Paige's curiosity about Daemon proves to be her downfall as she is swept up in his charming and arrogant pursuit to possess her in every possible way.

For the first time in her life, Paige will struggle for control while Daemon slowly dismantles the walls she has built around herself. Only time will tell who will be victorious in their battle of wills as Daemon teaches Paige the weaknesses within herself that she never knew existed. Paige stays one step ahead in her struggle against Daemon's controlling ways, but when tragedy strikes her life a second time, she has to choose; will she put her life in danger, or will she finally accept a helping hand?

Excerpt :

Just when I was starting to give up hope, an amazing set of arms wrapped around me and I was suddenly being hoisted up onto the speaker.  I was placed down and one of those arms stretched out in front of me to keep me from falling forward.  I took a second to catch my breath and turned to thank whoever grabbed me.  As soon as I caught sight of his clear blue eyes, my breath hitched and I was momentarily stunned silent.  I continued my exploration of the person beside me and discovered a chiseled square jaw, lightly sprinkled with five o’clock shadow.  His face was framed with messy dark brown hair.  My gaze slowly wandered downward and found the most drool worthy broad shoulders a girl could ever ask for.  His t-shirt was pulled tight over his chest and biceps and his mid-section dipped down into a perfect ‘V’.  His dark blue jeans perfectly accentuated his muscular legs which hung over the edge of the speaker.  I looked back up into those eyes and he smiled the most jaw dropping smile, revealing two dimples on either side of his mouth.
He leaned over to speak closer to my ear.  “Sorry to manhandle you without permission, but you looked like you could use some help down there.”  His voice was a deep enough timbre that it wasn’t difficult for me to hear him over the music.  I continued staring at his sculpted mouth like an idiot and then shook my head to free myself from his spell.  I could feel my face getting hot from looking at him.
“Uh, yeah, thanks for that.  It normally doesn’t get that bad down there and I wasn’t expecting to get trapped.”  I smiled at him and then turned my attention back to the stage.  The band was starting in on their second song and the crowd calmed for a moment before picking it back up with the increasing tempo of the song.
He leaned over to me again.  “No problem, beautiful, I’m always happy to assist a fair damsel in her time of distress.”  Even though his lips were brushing over my ear, causing tremors; and his hot breath rolling down my neck was doing wonderful things for my body, I was suddenly annoyed.
I shouted over the music at him.  “Please don’t say that.”
“What?” He looked at me and his confusion at what I had said was clearly written in his expression.
“Don’t call me a damsel in distress.  It’s degrading and I don’t appreciate being classified by use of a demeaning stereotype.”

My Rating
WOW , I don't even know where to begin with this review. I started this book late yesterday afternoon and as you can see I am down with reading it already. Once I started reading it I could not put it down, and I stopped to sleep lol. 
This is an amazing Debut novel By M.S. Willis. She truly knows how to write a story. I was pulled in right from the start and did not look back at all. 
We meet Paige when she is 5 yrs old. her parents Own and operate a Center for abused and battered woman. It is there that Paige Meets Buddy, They become the best of friends and are always together, climbing tree's, and playing. Buddy has helped Paige with all of her cuts and bruises from playing. They form a bond like no other kids have ever. 
one day Buddy and his mom leave the center. Paige does not see him for a while, but then has a brief encounter with him again when she is 6 yrs old. 
They have to be separated again and Buddy makes a promise to Paige. 

“I promise, Paige. I promise that we will see each other again.”
“I love you, Buddy,” I whispered. Buddy’s body shook with the force of his tears and he looked down at me. “I love you too, Paige.”

We then meet Paige yrs later when she is 22 yrs old. She has grown into a great independent woman and is currently a PI investigator. She lives with her 2 best friends David, & Annie. then there is her friend Alex who she is friends with benefits. 
I absolutely LOVED David and his humor. He was such a strong character as a best friend for Paige. He was funny, but he was protective and humorous at times when it was necessary. 
One night she goes out to a bar called Tomb and this is where she meets Daemon one of the bouncers. Something pulls her to him and she can not explain it as she has spent years with herself closed off from all men and other people refusing to love anyone Because of what happened with Buddy.
from there things progress and we get more into the life of Paige and Daemon's relationship. Something happens that brings them closer together by the end of the book. Without going into more detail then that because I do not want to ruin it for anyone. 

This book takes you on a ride like no other Book I have read thus far. There is chemistry, there is humor. there is drama, there is steam, but in the end Willis has wrote an amazing story. it has intense moments as well. 
I can not wait to see where this series goes and I will be anxiously waiting for book 2. No there is NO cliffhanger per say but it does leaving you wanting more right now, because you will want to find out what happens with Paige and Daemon. 

"Daemon and Chris had both played their cards in two very different games, but I would now take control of those decks. Both men would soon learn what I was truly capable of, they would learn that they had underestimated the woman within me. Although their intentions were very different, they had both made their positions known.
This was not the end to the games that had been played against me…it was only just the beginning."

Want to know who Chris is? LOL your going to have to read the book, you all know I do not like to give to much away in my reviews !!!!!!!
