Product Description

First of all, the title needs to be changed to "The Ultimate Manual of Kinky Sex, BDSM, and Control for Dummies"! If this is your first time crossing the line into the Dark Side, then I recommend this book as a guide! - Night Owl Reviews

This book is a fabulously sexy tale that made my palms sweaty and my heart race. I grew to love both Madison and Gabe and, although I didn’t agree with some of the decisions that they made, I wholeheartedly routed for a situation where they could both be happy. - Scorching Book Reviews

When Madison Morris decides to hire an assistant to help run her naughty bookshop, she gets a lot more than she bargained for. Aggressive Andy doesn't quite make the grade, but continues to push her buttons in other areas, while uptight and utterly repressed Gabriel can't quite take Madison's training techniques. One makes her grasp control, while the other makes her lose it. But the lines are blurring and she's no longer sure who's leading and who's following. In the midst of kinky threesomes and power plays, can Madison work out what she really wants?

Charlotte Stein has contributed to numerous erotic anthologies, and her own collection of short stories, The Things That Make Me Give In, is out now in Black Lace. She lives in West Yorkshire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars! 22 May 2011
Format:Paperback
I'll admit, I wasn't sure what to expect when I first sat down to read `Control', but I was rewarded a little slice of pure, escapist heaven. Not usually one to go for male submissives, I was surprised to find myself enthralled by the beautiful young Gabe and itching to lap him up for myself. The emotional presence in this book is really top-notch, capturing perfectly the important psychological aspect of sex, along with great scenes of passionate, raw, carnal bonking. Definitely a page-turner and definitely worth those 5 golden stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended to any fan of contemporary erotica 11 Nov 2010
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I can summarise this book in one word - awesome. It has Stein's mark all over it - it's easy to read, flows well, is funny in places and of course is damn sexy. To me, it feels like a different take on threesomes and submission and domination games. It's like all three of those things - but with heart. There are feelings involved as well as body parts and this is what makes this book such a fabulous read. It's got a brilliant storyline as well as erotic sex scenes, and I recommend it to any fan of contemporary erotica.

5.0 out of 5 stars Control 29 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
Be warned. 'Control' is one of those novels. Once you've settled in to read Charlotte Stein's delicious erotic romance, you won't want to put it down until you've properly finished and relished every last word.

Madison Morris's naughty bookstore, Wicked Words, seems a strange place for repressed Gabriel Kaufman to take up employment, especially when Madison's training techniques evolve to a kinky threesome with aggressive Andy Yarrow. But Gabriel is up for the training, and they all get a lot more than they bargained for.

'Control' is a novel full of kinky, naughty heat with a plot that grabs you from page one and doesn't let go until the very last satisfying sentence. 'Control' is sexy, funny, romantic, poignant, and always compelling. But it is the magnificent chemistry between her characters and the delicious interplay amongst them that makes Charlotte Stein's novel truly unstoppable. Absolutely a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars. WOW! 28 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
I mean, WOW. What a great read. Thanks Charlotte for letting me read one of your fantasies :-) Well worth the price of purchase (infact it was worth more). As two other reviewers have given a synopsis of what it's all about, all I say is that this was worth reading and I'm going to check out what else Ms Stein has written.

And - NO - I don't know the author and I wasn't given a free book!!!!! lol!

5.0 out of 5 stars What an incredible story! 8 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel stunned.
This is honest to god, hands down, the best erotic fiction I've ever read.
The story is honest and warm and real. There's no ridiculous, simpering heroine, no damaged billionaire or scheming-ex plot, or someone being abducted etc blah etc. It's lustful and tender and heartwarming all at the same time. The characters are layered, there's thought in the construction of the story & the sex is hot.
In fact, I think there's room for a sequel.
I'm definitely buying more books from the author. Best book I've read this year!

The sheer intensity of Stein's writing, her quirky and witty turns of phrase, her ability to get you so deep under the skin of the characters you should probably be arrested for some kind of violation - they all amaze me. I love the way she comes up with unexpected ways to describe something that have you thinking, 'Yes, that's it exactly.' I mean things like this: 'Blissful bonelessness takes over. I think I sag all the way through the mattress to the floor below.' I love the way her heroines can be unsure of themselves in their inner monologue without ever falling through doorways, biting their lip or flicking their hair.

Control is an exploration of dominance and submission totally without any of the usual cliches or stereotypes. It's pure, tweed-clad joy in giving in to your fantasies. Madison is looking for an assistant for her erotica bookshop. The dirty-talking, order-giving Andy is not suitable, although his interview at the kitchen table proves interesting. Quiet, repressed Gabe, who is secretly a seething mess of kinky desires, gets the job. And Madison sets about finding out what makes him tick. Which is mostly being ordered to do things he's ashamed of.
