Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation. 
Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age fourteen. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home. 
When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in. 
Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a fa├žade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him. 
When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman. 
Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after… 



My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My gosh, this story, these characters were so real; enthralling plot.

Sexual encounters that oozed intensity.

Had my heart race go completely berserk throughout the entire story. There was always an up-beat mood whether there was am argument scene or a sex scene. Everything between the two main characters was filled with such rich passion that I utterly fell prey to; their strong attraction towards one another was coming off the pages. Never was there a dull moment between the characters or in the story itself; always had a blast with the smart-ass remarks, playful banter, fierce fiascoes, and wild sexual encounters. This was a complete package when it really comes down to it. A modern-age romance with its sexual content and to be honest, greatly written enough to be considered to be the best since I've read Sylvia Day's Crossfire series. A definite pick-me-up as well, considering my last read prior to this story was a complete disappointment. I would definitely recommend this! I was aware of the cliffhanger, very briefly, but I was reading so fast near the end that the last word blurred by me. I had to go back, read again to make sure I read right and didn't miss anything. Literally, I was reduced to incoherent mumbling, multiple gasps and fangirl squealing throughout this wild and crazy story.

Overall, the read left me speechless, and again gasping at everything as well as being repetitive with things I was able to come up with as commentary. I absolutely look forward to reading more of the author's work.


“Let me give you the tour of our facilities and tell you a little more about us, things that you won’t find on the website,” McKenzie said as she began leading him from the room. “We are particularly selective. Our women are, first and foremost, elegant. No one will know you are with an escort. They are trained to be anything you need. We have a list of questions for you to answer, and then we set you up with potential candidates, women who won’t question what you want from them. Not only that,” she said, pausing to look at him, “but they will also enjoy every minute of it.”
