Needless to say, the sparks fly, suspicions about her true identity roughens the waters, and it's not long before both their lives are in danger. Sean, the youngest playboy brother and their old friend Seth (from Behind Closed Doors) play significant roles in the story, with only a cameo really from Connor (from Standing in the Shadows) as he is busy getting married. We're also re-introduced to Nick, Connor's friend who let him down, and enough of a seed has been sewn that I expect we'll see a book about him soon.
Back to our story, lives are at risk, the heat between our two leads rises and they explode into some scorching adult scenes. Shannon's adult scenes are very raw and these are no exceptions. In her previous books, her heroes were all about their ladies' pleasure, and Davy is no exception, except that he did not seem as mesmerised. Davy pushes Margot to her raw, vulnerable self but is afraid to let his guard down. As the oldest brother who found himself as a single parent to three boys, he's had to always be in control. So, we have the trust issue and some resentment from Margot. This leads to Margot fleeing from Davy, endangering both their lives.
They manage to work through their issues and the whole plot comes to a bullet-flying, action-packed, drama-filled resolution that is a little too overdone to be realistic.
I enjoyed this book very much, but I only gave it 4 stars as it lacked some of the intensity of her previous books and the plot was a little too out-there to be plausible. Still, I have every intention of re-reading it and holding on to it.
As explained by a previous reviewer, the title comes from Davey's (the male lead) need to control himself and surroundings. He feels out of control around Margot and tries to control her with his size and sheer force of will. He's not able to do it. Because Margot is skittish he doesn't want to be too controlling because she pushes him away when he does. In the end the book ends with a big fight scene and the hero wins the day (as to be expected)
The characters are good, but the intensity in the bedroom was a little lack lustre, but I'm still a fan.
This is another fantastic read by shannon mckenna, I couldnt put it down, it is full of hot romance and fast paced action, the story is so descriptive I could imagine everything happening as if I had watched it on dvd.
i have read this series from the beginning and you get to know all the mcloud brothers and friends characters before their book comes up and they are all great characters so I fell even more in love with davys character as I read and margot character is a strong fiesty funny female who is strong enough despite what she has gone through to drive davy crazy, the dialogue between them was amazing and funny.
While reading this book I cried and laughed and I didnt want it to end, I was sucked into the story from beginning to end and I never flicked or skimmed any pages. Another fantastic story and I will kepp rereading these books, I cant decide which book is my favourite I love them all
Out of Control is Davy McCloud's story, the eldest of the McCloud brothers. Another fantastically hot story keeping you hooked with every turn of the page. As the title suggests we find Davy "out of Control", still the hero like Shannon's other characters but his damsel in distress in certainly more feisty than the others and definitely perfectly for Davy.
Connor and Margot work well together, the relationship between the 2 of them can be believable and it's great to find out why Davy is how he is and I love the way Margot pushes all his buttons but in a way a lot of us women can relate to.
My opinion, is get the book, hold your breath and dive straight in to sexy story with great romance, sex and suspense vibrating through the pages. I absolutely love this and as the third book of Shannon McKenna's that I've read, she has certainly kept up the standard and this will not be the last I read.
