I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
This is the second book in the Control series. I loved it!
Paige Stone is a strongly stubborn individual. I loved this character's determination to find Chris after the brutal attack. Unfortunately, she is a bit reckless at times, which nearly gave me a heart attack, never mind Daemon!
Daemon Pierce is sexy, handsome and downright ticked off with Paige! I originally thought he was a bit of a jerk. However, by the end of the first book, I was smitten! I love his protective streak, but he tends to be a bit overbearing at times.
The story continues from the end of the first book, and it is a real page turner - I struggled to put the book down! One thing I love about this story is how the characters come alive! David is still one of my favourites - he makes me laugh with his antics. However, Chris is on the other side of the scale - he made my skin crawl! Just thinking about him makes me shudder!
The chemistry between Paige and Daemon is explosive, to say the least! The pages fairly spark and sizzle, even though sometimes all they are doing is sitting in the same room. It was nice to have had my suspicions confirmed about something towards the end of the book though! This confirmation made me want to read the next book, Conquer, as soon as possible!
M.S. Willis has written a fantastic New Adult romance that was disturbing in places and touching in others. I love her writing style, which is fast paced, and the story flowed beautifully. I am adding her to my Favourite Authors list!
Due to some scenes of violence and those of a sexual nature, I do not recommend this book (or series) to younger readers. However, I highly recommend this book if you love hot and spicy romances. - Lynn Worton

One issue with series is that usually when the first book is FREAKIN AWESOME!!! You have to worry that the following books won’t be able to live up to the expectations that you have for it. That has happened to me several times throughout my reading history. I am really excited to say that that is NOT the problem with Conflict.
Although there weren’t as many “funny parts” as there were in Control, I think that M.S. did a great balance between the humor and the suspense. This book had a more serious tone to it than the first book. But seeing as what was happening in this one, I still enjoyed it immensely!!
And of course what could go wrong when you have David, who is being his normal joking self, and of course the CRAZY sexual tension between both Paige and Daemon? Let me say, there were parts of this book where I wanted to smack Paige upside the head! If I had a guy like Daemon wanting to be with me, I don’t think my clothes could fall off quick enough!
Let’s not forget the drama either. With Annie having gone through what she did, although you know that it is horrible, was written in a way that you could understand what she was going through. In my opinion, that part was very well done. Chris’s character, Gosh I don’t even want him in the same paragraph as Annie, was done to a point where I was kinda freaked out a little bit. Wondering what exactly goes through M.S.’s head, and making sure I don’t get on her bad side! You could feel the evil that was pouring off of him during the course of the story.
But even with that aside, I do think that the tension did end up helping more in the long run. Paige was able to learn more about herself and Daemon during the time she was torturing him, (along with me!). The ending of the book, completely caught me off guard. I couldn’t believe it when I read it and let me say, it was great! I really enjoyed the way that M.S. wrote this story.
