Conflict 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.
asgoodrich More than 1 year ago
Conflict is the continuation of Paige and Daemon’s story from Control. I have to say this now and be done with it (at least for this review) … Paige is an idiot. Don’t get me wrong because I really like her character. She’s a spitfire who refuses to let recent events pull her down. I loved that she channels her anger to move forward and that she continues to stand up for herself. BUT… the fact that a woman who is a private investigator is completely incapable of putting two and two together irritates me to no end. Her dreams harken back to her youth and she wonders – literally wonders – what her subconscious is trying to tell her. Even as she holds evidence of who Daemon is in the palm of her hand, she doesn’t … put it … together. I don’t think the universe could have given her a clearer sign as to who Daemon was and she still didn’t get it. It wasn’t until Daemon actually spoke the words out loud to her that she got it. Good grief! It’s frustrating because Paige is not a stupid woman – reckless, yes; stupid, no. Yet despite this HUGE hole in Paige’s intelligence and judgment, I loved this book. Honestly it makes no sense to me how I can love Paige so much despite this oversight, yet I do. Nor does it make sense that I still continue to love the series to the point of addiction, but I do. Normally, my thinking that the main character is an idiot would translate into me not liking the book, yet Ms. Willis has managed to snare my attention and keeps me invested in Paige’s story so that I keep coming back for more. Granted, the fact that Daemon is sex-on-a-stick probably doesn’t hurt, but that alone is not enough to keep me invested in the characters. I must give credit where credit is due – the author. Ms. Willis has managed to craft a sequel that adds even more suspense, danger, romance, and freaking hot sex to an already exciting series. Conflict was a great addition to the Control series and I am looking forward to the next book, Conquer, to find out more about Daemon’s past, whether or not Paige continues making foolhardy decisions regarding her safety, just how mouthwateringly dominant Daemon is in the bedroom, and just how far Chris is going to take things before the cops catch him (and yes, by god, they better catch him).  Needless to say this is going to be a long week before I get to embark on the final leg of the journey.  I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.  Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers!

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. Review provided by Crystal's Many Reviews
