REVIEW: Controlling Darkness by Anna Edwards

An addictive, thrilling read……

Step into the world of control…this was a skilfully written erotic thriller and fourth in the Control Series… this instalment focused on Sonia and Matthew both highly skilled bodyguards and both with dark pasts that have left them irreparably damaged physically and mentally…

This was such an addictive read…all the characters were interesting and complex….the interactions between the two main characters were at times sweet, sexy and always genuine.. they both have so many problems to overcome that it all appeared insurmountable but they are surrounded by a wonderful cast who provided strength and support when it was needed and the fact that the main characters from the previous books in the series continued to play an important part in this story was an added bonus…….

I loved the scene towards the end of the book with the interfering news-reporter……it demonstrated the strength of friendship and loyalty between all the characters…..and left me wanting to know more about the reporter’s backstory….

I was captivated by this book and it’s original plot…fast paced and full of intrigue with elements of BDSM and erotic sex as well as an awesome group of friends and lovers ….I received a copy of this book as an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review…

SNEAK PEEK: Controlling Darkness by Anna Edwards

Sonia, I am sorry to wake you, but I want to show you something. This is one of the main reasons I come to Pondicherry.”

She turned over and rubbed her eyes, still sore from crying. “What time is it?

It is still dark.”

“It is just before six. We have to leave at eight to make sure we get back. Are you okay to get up?”

“Yes, it is fine, I’m just a bit achy after the bike ride yesterday. Been a while since I have done that. What is it you wanted to show me?”

“Come to the window.” Matthew got out of the bed, and all he was wearing was a pair of tight boxer shorts. Every other inch of his muscular body was on display. Sonia felt that view right between her legs. He did indeed have a backside she wanted to sink her teeth into. “Come on, you don’t want to miss it!”

She pulled the blankets back, swung her legs out of the bed, and strode to the window. The hotel was on the seafront, and the sun was coming up, its pink, purple and amber tones appearing over the horizon. It was vast and unimpeded by clouds like it would be in England. It felt like she could almost reach out and touch it. In fact, she brought her hand up against the window pane. Matthew moved in behind her, and she felt his warm breath on the back of her head. His hand slid over the curve of her hip. His pressed his body into her, and she could feel his cock starting to twitch awake against her back. She turned in his arms and looked up at him. Neither of them spoke.

Matthew brought his lips down on hers. Sparks of electricity surged through her body as she parted them slightly. Matthew lifted her off her feet, and she wrapped her legs around his waist. Jesus. His cock was rock solid underneath her.

He laid her out on the bed and climbed on top of her. He made sure not to bear any weight on her, but his lips never left hers, not until he pulled back to look into her eyes again.

“You’re perfect, Sonia. You’re so beautiful. I want to make love to you. I don’t ever want to stop.”
