Ella Patton and Liam Stone return in Laura Marie Altom’s Possess—the breathtaking conclusion to the steamy, contentious love affair that began in Control.
*I received an ARC of this book free from NetGalley on behalf of Random House Publishing Group – Loveswept in exchange for an honest review*
This book picks up right where Control left off. Ella is a lot stronger in the second book than she was in Control. On the other hand Liam is a bit softer, but he just wants his woman to be happy.
Ella Patton is completely in love with Liam Stone and has agreed to marry him. She definitely dropped the bomb that she is technically still married and Liam will do anything to make her marriage go away so they can be together and she can forget about her abusive past once and for all.
When Ella’s husband finds her, kidnaps, and hides her away under the care of a doctor that keeps her doped up on meds she starts to question if her past actions are real or if she is the one that is crazy and harmed herself. Liam will stop at nothing to get Ella back and prove that her husband really is abusive. With the help of Garrett he knows exactly how to get her back and hide her from anyone that want s to do her harm including her parents. Blaine finally shows his true colors when he has no choice but to kidnap a little girl just to get Ella’s attention.
This book is definitely not for the faint of heart. The abuse that Blaine has put Ella through is very detailed and graphic at times. With that being said, I really liked it. The writing is great, the storyline works. I enjoyed reading this a little more than I did Control as this is a little faster paced and not a lot of focusing on the detail since we already know the characters.
The author does give more titles to the series in this book and I am excited to see where this story goes. I would love to see Garrett get his own book and for Nathan to find a love of his own.
My Favorite Character: I have really grown to love Liam and it is great when the love of your life can rescue you and make you feel safe.
My Favorite Moment: WOW! Love the description of Ella’s ring.
