Kind hearted and naive, Paige Jacobs wants what every girl craves…to be loved. She uses this need to make excuses when her current boyfriend goes from being a tad jealous and slightly overprotective to stalker-ish. She isn’t that girl and Craig isn’t one of those guys. Things are fine. Perfectly fine. Until the moment a dark-haired, tattooed hottie with a snarky mouth walks into her life and tells her she deserves better.

Confident and boldly spoken, Cameron Green has always been the guy bad girls can’t get enough of and all the good girls want to tame. He’s lived a lavish lifestyle filled with drugs, women, and alcohol up until his destructive path finally caught up with him. Now Cameron isn’t sure what to do with himself or how to dampen the longing for something more festering inside of him since coming out of his drug-induced haze. But when he meets a doe-eyed girl who gets past his walls like no other, everything about him clicks into place.

Together the two learn there are emotions that hold within them all the power to control you…

*This is the second novel in the Coldcreek Series. While this novel can be read as a standalone, you will gain more story wise if you read them in order of release.*

Break You (the first novel in the Coldcreek Series) 
is on sale for $1.99 for a limited time.

My Take on this Journey:

Control You, by Jennifer Snyder, book two of the Coldcreek series, was riveting.  What can I say? When I see a book written by Ms. Snyder, I have to pick it up, and I know I won't be able to put it down till the last word is read. Ms. Snyder pulls her readers in immediately, makes them feel their way through her stories, till they feel like they belong there.  This novel was no different.

Control You continues from where Break You ended.  We get Paige, Craig, and Cameron's story.  This novel is fast paced, written in dual perspective, and all encompassing.  Paige is dating Craig, an ego maniac, full of himself, manipulative, and sneaky.  Unfortunately, Paige is gullible and naive.  She doesn't see the way he works her with his sweet words, till it is almost too late, but her friends see right through him.

Craig has a way of making Paige feel guilty for feeling anything other than what he wants. She is so needy for affection, that she makes excuses for his emotionally abusive attitude, and the disrespectful way he treats her.  It is unacceptable, but Paige lets it happen over and over again. 

Paige goes to a party at Craig's with his upscale friends and doesn't fit in.  She is uncomfortable and put in an awkward position when a female friend approaches her about her major.  Paige finds out that Craig lied about the fact that she is undecided.  He makes an excuse that he wanted her to look better in front of his friends and not like a slacker.  At this point, the reader realizes what a creep her boyfriend is.  Paige goes out of the house and comes face to face with a tattooed, gorgeous hunk of man, Cameron.

Cameron is sexy, and has a way with words.  There is an immediate attraction and the banter is a bit over the top.  They both start laughing hysterically, when Craig comes out and becomes enraged.  He is so jealous, he can't see straight.

This was the beginning of a new eye opening experience, for which Paige will feel guilt and remorse.  Cameron is something else.  He has it all, but believe me when I say, he has been around the block in more ways than one.  He lives in the moment, and teaches Paige how to do the same, though it takes a while to get her there.

This novel gets under the readers skin, and Ms. Snyder will make them feel every emotion as it occurs.  They will be on the ride of a lifetime, and it isn't all good. There are some very dark subjects, as only Ms. Snyder knows how to get to the crux of your soul.  This novel is another roller coaster ride of emotions.  You will laugh hysterically one minute, then cringe at the emotional and physical abuse, swoon over the love scenes, and want to shake Paige when she just doesn't get how she is being used.  The readers anger will overflow at times.

Craig will make your skin crawl, makes Paige insecure, unsure, tentative, and guilty.  Cameron makes her want things, become lighthearted, fun, happy go lucky, and want to show her how to live by the seat of her pants, but she doesn't think she should have those feelings, because of some misplaced duty to the evil, sick minded Craig.  Paige is loyal to a fault, but doesn't act on anything with Cameron, even though Craig accuses her of it.  Cameron is the complete opposite of Craig.  The novel comes full circle, and Paige and Cameron will have their day, but at what cost.

Control You will leave the reader reeling. There is only one way to live in the moment, and Ms. Snyder will take you there.  The magnetic, sizzling, sex appeal between Cameron and Paige is combustible and will leave you breathless.

I give Control You, by Jennifer Snyder, 5 Manipulative, Abusive, Seductive, Sexy, Gravely, Tingly, Combustible, Wanton Stars!!! 

Favorite Quote:

"She stood straighter and that tongue of hers slipped out to lick along her bottom lip.  I couldn't contain myself any longer.  I needed to touch her, to explore her mouth with my tongue, and ease this burning for her inside of me.  My mouth slanted across hers in the most delicate way I could manage.  I resisted the primal instinct to entwine my fingers in her hair and pull her to me as I devoured her mouth with mine."
