Overview

Welcome to a world few people know. A world where the hottest bedroom desires become a reality and where good girls like Victoria “Tiny” Corielli shed their sweetness for carnal, bad-girl pleasures.

Victoria nurses her mother through cancer treatments and works long hours as a New York City bike courier to pay for the roof over their heads. When a suspiciously high-paying delivery job thrusts her into the arms of impossibly attractive businessman Ian Kerr, Victoria is sorely tempted to enjoy his attentions and his chiseled body, if only to forget her responsibilities for a while…no matter the cost.

Kerr seems to have it all: money, power, and charisma to spare. What he doesn’t have: revenge on an old nemesis, but he intends to get it. Kerr is prepared to cast innocent Victoria as the lure in his vengeful plot. Yet the more they explore midtown Manhattan—and each other—the more she means to Ian. Will it be too late for him to stop the dangerous plan he’s already put into motion?

This book has a good combination of humor and romance. It's also pretty sex. The characters are solid. Victoria and Ian are great.

I loved this book from start to finish. Great storyline, there is nothing I would change in this story and that is saying something. Tiny is my favorite character, she is the h in this book. It has been months since I've read a book that I loved the heroine! Great book, patiently awaiting the next one in this series

## FANTASTIC. I loved this book for sure. The writing style was superb and the characters were interesting and had plenty of layers. Naturally, the hero starts off as the obligatory cocky billionaire, however keep reading because he becomes more delicious with each chapter. I love how possessive he is and how fiercly he wants Tiny (horrible name). I wish the heroine was a little more capable though. But again, she grew on me. And the chemistry between Ian and Tiny was undeniable. Definitely worth your time and money.

This book will make you laugh and cry and squirm (in the best way). In this modern day Cinderella story you have a dyslexic bike messenger and the super-rich businessman. The chemistry is there from the moment they meet. He wants her but she is intimidated by his money and feels insecure because of her disability. I fell hard and fast for Ian and struggled along with Tiny as she watched her mother grow ever more ill. Jen Frederick is a “new to me” author but you can bet I will be checking out her backlist and am awaiting the next installment of the Kerr Chronicles with baited breath.  Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review.

4.5 “I’d lose control all over Ian” Stars Losing Control ended up being nothing like I was expecting, but after reading Revealed to Him by Ms. Frederick I couldn’t not read Ian and Tiny’s story. Victoria aka Tiny has had some rough times. A bike courier in NY she’s been struggling to keep a roof over her and her ailing mother’s heads. When her mom’s health takes a turn for the worse, she accepts some off the books deliveries to keep them afloat. This puts her in the path of Ian Kerr. Mysterious businessman and hot as fork hunk. A chance encounter is the changing point of Tiny’s life. Ian is enchanted by her artlessness and genuine personality and though they start off with a possible business arrangement, the more time they spend together, the more he doesn’t want to go through with his plans. I really liked Tiny. She was a tough, no bullshit young woman who wasn’t afraid to do what was necessary to help her mom. Her devotion to her was commendable. Her learning disability was both the source of her insecurities and the cornerstone of her badass attitude. I loved the way how little by little she stopped being skittish of Ian’s pursuit and eventually surrendered to his genuine interest. It’s plain to see that Ian had one agenda going in, but it changed along the way of getting to know Victoria. Mysterious, sexy, alpha and OTT, just how I like my millionaires, he was too dreamy for words. With revenge plots, unexpected feelings, scorching hot sextivities and an endearingly in-love possessive hunk, I was all kinds of engaged with Losing Control from start to finish. I can’t wait to dive into the second part of the story and see how everything unfolds!!!

Victoria/Tiny is twenty five and a bike courier with a learning disability as she has dyslexia . She also looks after her mom who is the most important person in the world to her. But her mom now has cancer. Her mother then gets worse and tiny needs more money. Then Tina meets Ian who is thirty two and instantly wants her. Ian is rich and propositions Tiny . Tina refuses but he just doesn’t give up and move on to someone else. Ian scares Tiny as she just doesn’t have time for him so she runs. Then Tiny has no choice but to work for her step brother Malcolm and his not so legal business. But not for long as Ian is chasing her and turns up every where she goes. . Even though he doesn’t really want to Ian hires Tiny to help him with a project he is working on. Ian shows Tiny he cares right off he moves her and her mom to a much better place to live and pampering her anyway he can. Tiny is having a problem with all this as she is very independent even with her disability and she is used to controlling all that happens to her. Ian was just everything: caring, tender, sensitive, and loving but at the same time jealous and possessive and so much more. Ian even gives Tiny a special nickname of “ Bunny” as she tried to run. This story is awesome .tiny is so loyal and true to her mom in her time of need. Ian trying to make everything right for Tiny/bunny. You really can’t ask for a whole lot more in a story. The characters themselves what can i say awesome great and some not so nice, i absolutely loved all the ins and outs Tiny and Ian went through. I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

I liked this book. It's very mature. So if you're not a fan of that this may not be for you. There actually is a good storyline here. I have read both books and can recommend them both. I liked the love conquers all theme and how they worked out their differences. Second books aren't usually as good but this series kept the pace going. I liked this author and her writing style. Will be looking out for her other books.

~ ARC provided via Net Galley in exchange for honest review ~ Losing Control is the first book in the Kerr Chronicles. It focuses on Victoria “Tiny” and Ian and Victoria’s mom who has (Mantle Cell Lymphoma ) cancer. I will start off by saying that until I got halfway into Chapter 2, I wasn’t feeling this book. I was so sad and I was really dreading where this book was going to go. That was until Tiny met Ian and had their moment “We aren’t strangers. Somewhere, at some point we must have made a connection and we’re now recognizing it again in this lifetime”. At that moment in the book, I was hooked. I could not put it down. At times, I had to go back and re-read parts to make sure I understood what was going on, but overall the writing was great and the book had a great flow. I could also easily picture the situations the characters were in, which also makes the book more enjoyable. I also have extreme laugh out loud moments “As his big black cape is wafting in the wind, he leans forward to wave a carrot at me”. I died laughing so much at Tiny’s witty banter with Ian and his bodyguard, not to mention I have a soft spot for super heroes. I highly recommend reading this book and starting the series. I will be following this book up with the second installment, Taking Control.

Victoria a.k.a. Tiny needs help. Her mothers’ cancer has come back and they need money fast. The problem is Tiny can’t get too many jobs since she has dyslexia. When one of her biking jobs lands her in front of Ian Kerr, a man she never thought she would see again her life has forever changed. Working as a drug mule on the side for her brother in exchange for money has helped a bit but when her bother offers her a job she can’t turn down she runs smack dab in the middle of a billionaire feud with Ian Kerr as the front runner.  Losing It was a cute story with a lot of drama. Ian has a old rival he wants to ruin, but he needs help, which is where Tiny comes in. She gets caught up in helping Ian on the count of her reading disability. Tiny goes back and forth with not wanting to be involved with Ian due to her disability, she believes she isn’t good enough or that he’ll get sick of her needing constant help. Ian begins to include himself in Tiny’s life in every way. He takes care of the medical bills for Tiny’s mother. He makes sure they have a car so they don’t need to take the bus to the hospital. He makes sure she has food everyday and new clothes. He pampers her even though she doesn’t like the constant handouts, which is why she agrees to help him.  I enjoyed how realistic the relationship problems were in this book. Tiny has dyslexia, which she doesn’t let bother her or slow her down, but she also feels like she’s inadequate to be with Ian because he can read. It’s definitely an insecurity problem, but I enjoyed how it was realistic on not a body type problem we often see in other novels.  Overall, I thought this was a cute story. I’m excited to read the second one. Tiny and Ian definitely have a great upcoming story and I can’t wait to see how they take his enemy down.

I loved this book. Tinys spunky personality was my favorite even through her disability she is still a smart, spunky girl who stands her ground. I loved the ending! Can't wait for the next book! Ian was...PERFECT. I can perfectly imagine the whole book in my mind the way she wrote the book. Loved it, entirely.
