"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Bound - A suspenseful, action-packed, humorous continuation of Control. The beginning is slow, but the pace picks up quickly and keeps it up. Lexi redeems herself, and along with Landon, is full of surprises. Leroy is a great supporting character. If you like stories about the Mafia, read this. For those who care, there's infrequent cursing and no sex. Hopefully, we'll see more of Leroy and Landon; I get the impression there's more to their story. I contacted the author to review her books and she gave me this ARC.
Longing - Glad to get background on Leroy, I found him an interesting character in Control and Bound. The author tells interesting, suspenseful, action-packed stories, but does have a problem with grammar, word usage and punctuation. For those who care, she doesn't use vulgar language, and other than one sex scene in Control, there's no sex. There's improvement between Longing and Bound, and I hope to see Leroy and Landon in future books. I was put on a mailing list and received this short story.
The Christmas Miracle Series are a group of short stories concerning a man discovering love and his adaption to the changes that love brings to his life. The stories are interesting and quickly read, although I would have preferred a complete book. On Easter has a cliffhanger ending, but by this book's release, the reader knows there's more to the story yet to come.
Christmas Miracle In July #1 - An interesting little story set in Christmas Town. I didn't know what the story was about, but it drew me in and kept me interested until the end. I liked the characters and the reason for the story. This author hasn't disappointed me with any of her books.
Christmas Miracle On Valentine's Day #2 - This story continues where In July ended. The story continues with Jack's acceptance to the changes in his life. The characters grow and the plot is interesting and has a lot of humor in it.
Christmas Miracle On Easter #3 - Oh, no. It's not exactly a cliffhanger, but it is; there's more to the story. This story continues where On Valentine's Day ended. Jack is still growing and accepting all the changes still coming with open arms; even the yucky ones. More of the characters are involved with their lives adding to Jack's.
Things aren't as they seem at all when the story takes a turn for the worse. Alistair is there to claim what is his and nothing and no one is going to stand in his way.
This book felt too much like 50 Shades of Grey mixed with Behind the Door for my taste. The BDSM perspective was lost when Landon tool things to the sadism side. In no real world or romance would that sistuation fly. Seems like Leroy is the one who really cares what happens to Lexie, even if it is under Landon's order.
I was upset that there wasn't any background to explain why he is so turtured with nightmares, how Alistair comes into play, why a billionaire bachelor would be the submissive to anyone in this way? Left to much unexplained for me.
Remember when Jon Snow died and how you felt after that episode of Game of Thrones? The whole world cried “what the heck” in unison. The betrayal and anger you lived with waiting for the next season – demanding to know exactly what happened to the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch? That’s the kind of “what the heck” I’m talking about here. That is how Control by R. M. Gauthier leaves you hanging – demanding to know exactly what happened to the CEO of Miller Holdings.
Control is filled with questionable obsessive behavior and edgy sex filled intrigue. Desire seeps from the pages, forcing you into submission. You try to fight it. Try not to submit to the guilty pleasures of Landon Miller’s perverse persuasion but resistance is futile.
Sometimes sickened and sometimes smitten, Landon leaves your heart and mind revolting. Do I like him? Do I hate him? Christ – what the hell is he doing now? Chapter after chapter you want to look away shut the book and pray for your sins but you don’t. You are unable to resist Landon.
Control is advertised as a companion of sorts to Fifty Shades of Grey. I read all three books and saw the movie. I even read Grey, which is the only book worth reading and the only one that doesn’t start every paragraph with “Jeez”. There are a lot of similarities between Control and Fifty Shades, mostly relating to the lifestyle and not the characters.
Anastasia and Alexandria are similar in name but that’s about it. Anastasia is much stronger than Lexi. I wanted to slap the stupid chick about a hundred times. Grow a pair and get a life. Talk about low self-esteem; get that girl a shrink and a social life.
Christian Grey and Landon Miller are similar in appearance and bank accounts but Miller is even more of a basket case than Grey. Those of you who read Fifty Shades know what that means – Landon is one seriously messed up dude. R.M. Gauthier takes Fifty Shades a hundred shades darker. Control is grittier, meaner, sicker and much, much better.
Mr. Landon Miller is a psychiatrist’s retirement plan. He’s sexy, alluring, disturbing, caring and one crazy control freak and the sad pathetic Lexi falls for the twisted freak with very little concern for her own safety. Her “innocence” is an understatement. Her “ignorance” is a fact.
I read this book in one day. Every chapter is a tease and the ending…seriously. That was just some sick stuff.
R.M. Gauthier tortures you until the end. She leaves you on your knees begging for more. Confused yet eager. Needing… Wanting… Pleading…
Deep breath in. Deep breath out. Damn it CONTROL yourself.
I’d like to see you try.
