What was not to love about Out of Control? Kick-butt heroine who knows when to lean on someone else, check. Kick-butt alpha male hero who is definitely more than he appears, check. Interesting suspense, check. Believable romance, check. It had everything I was looking for in a romantic suspense! Now onto the specifics:Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I normally start with characters, but since I feel this book was slightly more suspense than romance (but don't worry there is still romance) the plot is more of the steering factor. The characters are important too, but the suspense seemed to drive the book, at least to me. From oil wells in the Gulf to one in Texas and then overseas this book offers the variety of different locales. I loved the information about what the team did to stop the oil rig fires. It was fascinating but the plotting really got going with the suspense of who set the fires and then onto finally solving and proving the crime which takes place overseas and really added to my interest. I don't know much about oil drilling, oil rigs and the fires but really feel Ms. Feagan did her reserach. And her research really shines with the overseas part of the book. I was fascinated, captivated and just thoroughly entrenched in this book due to the plot.
The characters are stars in their own right. Blair is a female in a career full of males and she comes from a fancy family. So many contrasts about her, and I loved it. She also didn't pretend to be something she wasn't. She was tough, but underneath it she seemed to understand she needed to lean on someone. Now maybe she didn't want to but she understood it. Nick is alpha to the hilt but kind and gentler with Blair. He also has secrets which are fascinating and really add to the story. And the chemistry between Nick and Blair is scorching. You can feel the heat between them and it's sexy. As I mentioned in the interview I loved Conaway. So snarky and fun, yet she pulls no punches as well. She will get what she wants through sheer determination. And I loved that she and Blair clicked. Conaway really added to the story and sometimes it's hard to have that third character that you really like, but Ms. Feagan did it and now I can't wait to get Conaway's story as well!
Out of Control was an amazing edge-of-your-seat read. It took me one day to read (I had interruptions). I just had to know how it would turn out and kept turning the page. I was engrossed by the plot and I cared about the characters. I loved learning new things and visiting new places. It was one of those reads that I am still thinking about days later. I want more of Nick and Blair and hope to see at least a little of them in Conaway's book! If you love romantic suspense then this is a great book to read!
