Losing Control (Kerr Chronicles, #1) by Jen Frederick

Losing Control (Kerr Chronicles, #1)

I’d do anything to keep my mother alive. Anything, including ask Ian Kerr for help. I don’t know much about him, except that he has more money than some small countries. And he’s willing to spend it on me. Just one catch: there’s a string attached, and not just the one I feel pulling me into his arms and his bed. There’s also the plan for revenge he wants my help with. Every time he says my name, it makes my body shiver and my heart stu...

    4.5 stars!This book took me by surprise. I've seen the mixed reviews and I thought it wouldn't work for me. Boy, was I wrong. I forgot to take into account the allure of the hero, Ian Kerr. He's certainly one of the best caregiver alpha I've read in a while. At first glance, he's a very trope-y hero. A mysterious billionaire with nefarious plans that could end up hurting our heroine. But then you start to read and you just get sucked in by how s...

    NOW LIVE @ AMAZON4.5 TINY BUNNY STARSBillionaires and damsels in distress are a dime a dozen and I find myself tired of it all. But then along came this book. I felt really connected to the characters, which made the story more realistic and in my opinion very enjoyable.*FYI Victoria has light brown hair and green eyes*We have Victoria (Tiny) Corielli, she looks after her sick mother on her measly salary. She's a bike courier and she's very good ...

    3.5*I have mixed feelings about Losing Control I did enjoy it but I found it a bit slow sometimes nothing major happened and it did not grip me like I expected.I felt sorry for Tiny what she had to go through to support herself and her mum now and in the last 3 years she has a tough life and it was refreshing to have a job like a bike courier.I liked Ian but I did not love him and together they are hot.ARC provided by the author in exchange for a...

    4.75 "Ian, Ian, Ian" starsWell, now I am really ashamed...for NOT reading this sooner. I LOVED Jen's books from Gridiron series and I am so much looking forward to the next one BUT somehow in the ocean of books I have planned to read, this one was near the top, so what the fuck happened?! so, rectifying it as of now...I actually had no expectations at all, i just wanted to read it LOL and it just so happened we clicked.I loved the story altho...

    So much better than I expected! This was a meaty, multi-layered rich guy/poor girl romance. It's a fantastic escapist's dream. The hero, Ian Kerr, is not only rich, but a really nice guy. Victoria, or "Tiny", finds him at the perfect moment in life, and seeing as how she's the perfect girl for him, the rest is history.Tiny is a smart, dedicated, hardworking woman. I don't think Ian would have been so intrigued by her if she had been any less. The...

    I really liked this one! It reminded me , a bit, of a Cinderella type story and I had plenty of feels.. Tiny ( aka bunny, aka Victoria) is a young woman with a lot on her shoulders.. supporting her mom that’s dealing with an extremely hard battle with cancer and working herself sick trying to pay doctor bills for her mom and keep a roof over their head. And Ian… super rich good looking guy with revenge on his mind and an attraction to Tiny th...

    4.5 Stars" TINY" ... That's how the hero was referring to his lady..and I was doomed! What stand out for me in this book was "the chemistry between both MC...The hero had eyes only for one girl and that was "the heroine" whom he work hard to build a trust and commitment although his "real intentions were not flashed out enough for me due to lack of his POV...howeverthe passion these two shared was so captivating and romantic... the heat factor wa...

    3.59 stars!Alright, this is going to be a review on Losing Control and Taking Control as both follow the relationship of Victoria and Ian. It also makes my life a whole lot easier because I read the two stories consecutively so it's a little difficult for me to distinguish between them. Victoria is struggling to make ends meet as her mother is diagnosed with a second bout of cancer. She currently works as a bike messenger, her job opportunities a...

    3.50+ RATING- I find this authors writing style very readable and I enjoyed the romance between the two main characters. The steamy bits were sexy and very well written. Readers that can appreciate a rich alpha hero, an instant attraction and some dirty talk should be pleased with this one! One note: I didn't realize this was not a standalone book or I probably wouldn't have read it. I don't consider this a cliffhanger ending though, more a HFN. ...

    *I gave this audiobook a B for the narration and B- for the story at AudioGals*Narrated by Kate WaldrenLovers of the billionaire hero trope will likely enjoy Losing Control. While different in some respects from the typical Fifty-Shades-style stories, and definitely on the milder side of the spectrum, this story nonetheless features an alpha hero who is keen on controlling the heroine, though less due to his own flaws and more due to the heroine...

    I need to write a few words about this book. It was such a good surprise. Surprise because I like angst, drama and dark. When at 7% I realised the book would be funny too it was too late. I was hooked. Funny? not really my thing. Loved the witty heroine. She was funny and wickedly sarcastic.Our guy in this story is a very hot alpha with a dirty mouth and finally, Victoria is a biker courier. It was very refreshing and interesting read about it....

    I'm in love with Ian, and I have a big girl crush on Jen Frederick because her writing simply amazes me. I'm really looking forward to reading the next in the series and seeing that Tiny and Ian get their HEA.

    *ARC received from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review*Well this was a very welcome and sexy surprise. Good storyline and the sex... va va vroom. I loved it!!!! Victoria, or Tiny, was an interesting woman, not too weak, but not so stubborn that she denied her feelings for Ian again and again, as so many women do in romances. Her loyalty and devotion to her sick mother was one of the best parts of the book. Ian, although I didn't fully und...

    Disappointing.I received an early complimentary copy for an honest review.This was an unraveled mess of a book. It started out depressing with some sort of Cinderella-esque misery in which the heroine was mired. Plucky though she was, it was awful to read about her mother's deteriorating health and terminal disease. Then there was the dyslexia and lack of resources, add the awful step-brother, add to this the danger of her job and then throw in t...

    Holy cow there are no words for this book. It started off ok but then it was all down hill after that. Between the insta-love, incorrect representation of learning disabilities, cancer, childhood drama, gambling problem, drug mule on a bike and random Australian bodyguard who stereotypically called the female lead Sheila (rolls eyes a thousand times) I just couldn't muster up the courage to finish this book. It was L A M E. In my opinion. Not for...

    ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by Amazon Publishing in exchange for an honest review.Loved this story. I couldn’t put it down. Ian Kerr is the very definition of a knight in shining armour. Based on the premise of the book, I expected this book to be about a domineering billionaire with the typical issues but Jen Frederick surprised me by writing a damaged hero that WASN’T an as*hol#!. Very refreshing. And Tiny… Tiny w...

    Really enjoyed itTo me this story was a bit like a fairytale with a heroine struggling with her day to day life and a hero who can fix all of her problems with a click of his fingers. Unfortunately Tiny, our heroine, doesn't trust or accept our hero, Ian's generosity straight away. She struggles to give him control of her life, but eventually realises that it is in her very sick Mother's best interest.Ian and Tiny learn to trust each other and th...

    Well this was a really good book. It was all from the h pov and I really wish we would have gotten some of the H pov. I also had a few problems with the heroine but not enough to not enjoy the story. I could understand most of her feelings and some I felt it was I silly. I really hope the second book gives more insight into the hero which is what I felt was missing in this book. I loved that I really felt the hero cared even when she felt so susp...

    I really enjoyed this one! Ian was vera, vera dreamy. He was also a proper chaser, and y'all know I can't resist a lad who goes after his lady! There were a couple of things that brought down my enjoyment slightly but they were nothing big deal. • (view spoiler)[The second half had a bit too much sex in it for my tastes. I like sex in my books as much as the next lass but I don't like scene after scene that just feels unnecessary.• There were...
