    "The male lead in this is super possessive throughout the book. I find the book to be pretty good even with that however."

    "It wasn't as dark or dirty as the previous book. There was too much focus on the non sexy scenes, and he beat her up rather than punished her."

    "If you are looking for a book with a controlling and possessive mail lead character, Mile High (Up In The Air) may be the book for you. James is the dominant male in this story who tries to nurture his relationship with Bianca. I personally didn't like the book and felt this was a story more for a female audience."

    "After reading certain other book series with controlling billionaires that fall in love, I didn't have high expectations for this book series (no pun intended.) However, I did find myself enjoying the romance between James and Bianca. The author does a good job fleshing these people out, creating an environment that I want to read about, and having a story that makes me more interested in the people rather than the sex ; the sex is just the frosting on the cake. This book does a great job wrapping up the trilogy in a very satisfying way."

    "Nice little romance book that features two step siblings who fall in love. Before you jump to conclusions, they are step siblings, and not blood relatives so this is not incest haha. Either way, an enjoyable read."

    "Sylvia, does it again with Eva and Gideon in book 3 of the Crossfire series. We finally see much more of Gideon the dominate overbearing billionaire and what his love for Eva means. That love means every breath he takes is all about her and protecting her. In the mist of their relationship we find out much more about her past and how it changed her life forever, but to Gideon it means making sure she's safe from harm and danger. In return Eva learns how naive she's been to being babied by her mother and that saving face comes at a crossroad. Trying to be more independent she finds that she's gone from one overprotective person to another, but loves the dominate man unconditional anyway for just who he is. Does their love get tested for better or worse? Will they finally marry in this jacked up, psycho relationship that neither can walk away from? Well......lets say this it's a sexy read and some hard trials to get a conclusion, can't wait to read book 4 "

    "As I went through struggles with a controlling husband I remember a friend giving me the book Reflected in You (Crossfire). I did not know what it was about but after reading it I really had profound changes to how I viewed my relationship. The controlling and possessive male lead made this a very interesting read."

    "I get a real "Fifty Shades of Grey" vibe when I read over the plot details for this book, and while those types of novels are not necessarily my thing, I cannot find myself knocking them if they are successful. As the old cliche goes, different strokes for different folks and as long as they types of romantic novels are staying strong, my hate is off to them."

    "I was going to say that anyone who has been the victim of rape would be horrified at the nonchalant way this book handles it, but I don't think you have to have been sexually violated to feel offended. Desperately wanting to be Game of Thrones, this book makes it seem like hot men can rape women and get away with it."

    "The book In Flight is a tantalizing read that explores the relationship between a strong sexy first class flight attendant and her dealings with the beautiful and rich. This book is a hot red as it explores the extremes of roles in relationships."

    "Tears of Tess (Monsters in the Dark) is not a book that contains a controlling and/or possessive male lead. This book is about a girl that gets kidnapped and sold into the sex slave industry and her boyfriend that tries everything to find her."

    "If you like dark romance, this book is definitely for you. If you have inherited a debt and you are going to pay the debt by letting them to have you. Dark, suspense and interesting. Again, if you are not interested in these kinds of book, stay away, otherwise enjoy it."

    "I loved the unique twist on this book. The story begins an unusual but exciting twist and turns. Don't miss this one. THe controlling lead is the mother not a male which is why i gave it a low rating. "
