Ruthless and powerful, Max Brunetti wants to take over the Sinclair Vineyard to expand his own family corporation, and he will do everything in his power to get it. In order to gain the vineyard, he needs to make the Sinclair family an offer they cannot refuse. And he knows exactly what he wants in return.

My Review

Eeeppp , squee, clench, sigh, swoon, drool...Holy shit that was one hell of a sexy ass read!!! 
I loved every minute of Control Me! From the plot to the characters to the incredible amount of sex this book controlled me from cover to cover!! 

I completely devoured it in one sitting was an ignore my family kind of read! Ms. Raven's ability to engage and connect the reader to her characters is done so easily it's almost like falling into a trance! 

First let's talk about Jada's character. I loved her!!! She is the perfect mix sassy, sexy, snarky, and so incredibly brave and likeable! And I just loved her with Max! Their sexual chemistry was off the charts smokin' hot!! 
Max and Jada are another couple that I will be adding to my list of favourite literary couples EVER!

Max and Jada are so hot I was literally blushing, and fanning myself while reading! Now let's talk about that delectable creature that is MAX!!! Yummy! *drool *swoon

Elle Raven is an alpha man writing QUEEN!!! I'm so over the top hooked on the perfect blend of alpha male that is Max! 

Max exudes the typical alpha traits with complete perfection!! 
Any women that reads this book heed my WARNING....change of panties will be required!!! 

The man is a dirty talking, sex on a fucking stick, dipped in dominance, smothered with possessiveness, oozing charm all served with the right side a sweetness GOD of a man. 

Sweet baby Jesus this man's ability to affect a girl is crazy!! I'm on a complete Max high! 

Now, the story itself is so well written it is perfectly paced and had me completely hooked. 
The plot was interesting, and believable and kept me completely beyond engaged
was literally was glued to my Kindle! 
My only complaint is that it ended!

Clearly I loved this book! From the story line to the main characters and secondary ones I was simply captivated by this read, and I cannot wait to read the rest in the series!! 

Congrats on an incredible debut Elle you fucking killed it!!!!

 I CANNOT wait for the next book! I'm a gushing fan girl!
