Review - Taking Control by Danielle Dickson

See what our review team is saying about Taking Control


Loved this book! Loved how dominate Zander was and when him and Taylor come together its just HOT! These two just set the sheets on fire with there intense chemistry! I cannot wait for book 2 to come out so I can find out what happens next with Kai!


At first I wasn't sure Taking Control was going to be my kind of book, oh am I every so glad I kept reading!!! This book was amazing and once I started I could not stop. Now that it's over, I feel quite sad. Zander will break your heart. Taylor could be his saving grace . . . if he will let her. I will say that the I did not see the last line of the book coming! Which leaves me waiting in anticipation for book 2!!!


Taylor meets Zander and Kai at the new years eve party she threw for her work. Zander and Kai have known each other for seven years. Taylor went to school to be a designer, but hasn't moved up from the assistant position in over three years. Zander is opening an new gym and is looking for a designer- causing him to run into Taylor again. Will Zander finally let her in, and give up a little of the control he has over his life? I really enjoyed this story. I really liked Zander- and even liked Kai. The story was sexy, and fun. I give it 4⭐ out of 5⭐. It was a great read, and i cannot wait to read the next book of this series. If you are looking for a short sexy read, with a tattooed, brooding male, and a little MFM action, then this is it!


Jaysas!!!! This book!!! Zander rocked my senses. I’m not sure if I wanted to smother him or smooch him 😂. He’s such a broody SOB, but come on, who doesn’t love an alpha male in a book. Anyway..... I say as I fan myself. Zander and Taylor get together, for what is supposed to be a one time thing. Doesn’t work out that way though 😉. This book is pure hotness. I’m still trying to cool down! I cannot wait for book 2!!!!


Holy Hotness! This book had me raging one minute, sweaty the next. Zander and Kia. My, my, my!! Definately a sandwich you want to be squished between!!! Zander is a brooding ***hole but boy, I want to tame that beast! This book gave me all the feels! I freaking loved it!! A must read for sure!!


It started with one night but is that all it can be? This book is so HOT. I love when u get totally sucked into a book and Danielle definitely managed that with this one. I love hot tattooed alpha males and that just describes Zander to a T! I love that Taylor is strong female lead to and doesn't turn in to a wet blanket when she is upset! Can't wait for Kai's book and then D's too.


Oh what a way to whet your appetite for Zander and Taylor's story! An incredible beginning of a new series. I cant wait to see where Zander and Taylor go in the next book.



I’ve always treated life like a balancing act, standing on a thin line between order and chaos. One wrong move and I’ll fall, losing all sense of control. Then she happens. One night of unadulterated sex blurs the line and sends me running toward a release, but I know I can’t stop there. After a lifetime of chasing highs, she’s my newest addiction. And I need a hit, no matter the cost.
