Control (The Mystery of Landon Miller Book 1)
by R.M. Gauthier
4 stars out of 5
I read several novels dealing with BDSM in the past however, this novel focus on that style of life only as a means to bring forward an intricate psychology of the characters. The trope of the bored wife looking for something more in her life has been used before as well and it will probably be used in the future again but Ms. Gauthier starts from there and builds an interesting female protagonist and the narration is in her voice.
Alexandria Shaw is offered a choice by her best friend Haley and the choice she makes opens a world full of dark and control and aches, both physical and psychological. Her choice also leads her to meeting Landon Miller and she will develop very strong feelings for him and he will reciprocate. Their love is not meant to be, though, and the twists in the plot prove it.
Both main characters are strong people but both show weaknesses as well and their weaknesses spring from their mutual feelings and their own self-doubts. The action is fast-paced and helps the author to create a good psychological drama which culminates with the final twist in the plot. I must say it was a huge surprise. I suppose that there will be a second book because the ending of this one doesn’t seem quite being an end.
Any review is subjective and so is mine. It shows my own opinions and feelings. I am sure other readers will feel differently. At times, I felt cheated and especially in the end. That’s the reason I couldn’t give 5 stars to this novel.
