As live-in tutor to a headstrong teen, Shay Walker has her hands full—and the girl's absentee father doesn't help matters, either. All Shay wants is to let loose and indulge in a birthday fling with the hottest stranger who's ever caught her eye. But her one-night stand turns out to be Jace Jennings, her student's long-distance dad…and now he's taking up residence—at his lakeside estate and in Shay's most secret fantasies.
Jace isn't exactly a family man, but he's determined to do his best by his daughter—and the first step is forgetting how hot he is for her teacher. But close proximity and their heated connection keeps Shay at the forefront of his mind—even as it's obvious she holds her heart in check. So does Jace. Until they both realize that losing control just might mean finding forever.
What I Thought…
• Make Me Lose Control wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but that’s ok. Shay and Jace meet and have a one night stand before realizing that Jace is Shay’s employer. This led to quite a bit of awkwardness, which I enjoyed, and some funny moments too.
• London’s mother passed away and that is what brought Jace home to take care of her, though his plan is to send her to school so he can go back to work. Most of this is because he has no idea how to be a father (because he hasn’t been one) to a 15 year old girl. Jace regrets not being in his daughters life and I enjoyed seeing him work around to becoming a father.
• Shay has issues of her own, as a half sibling she never quite feels like a Walker, though they have no doubt that she is part of their family. I had a hard time caring about Shay and her issues as much as I did for Jace and London. Mostly I just wanted to tell her to get over it.
• What really sold me on Make Me Lose Control was London. We get a few chapters from her point of view and I absolutely love them. She was going through an identity crisis of her own and seeing it from her pov rather than Jace or Shay’s made the story better. I absolutely loved the epilogue that included her!
Overall Make Me Lose Control is a feel good at the end contemporary romance recommended for anyone one loves that genre!
