This causes a bit of a dilemma since all he really wants is to get to know who this mystery woman is. He needs to know who she is.

"Losing Control (Losing Control, #1)" Reviews
Ethan es un amor y Gia lo ha tenido bastante difícil, pero no me acaba de convencer ni lo que escribe la autora ni cómo lo hace. Y eso que la edad de los protagonistas, en torno a los 40, me había parecido un punto a favor...
This was a very quick read, but overall a good book.
Gia is a basically a good girl who likes to have fun. She has been through some tough situations in her marriage that has caused her to question herself and her self-confidence. Having gone through three miscarriages, a failed marriage that lead to a divorce, and a one night stand she couldn't go through with, Gia has finally decided that its time for a little fun. Using the annual rock festival as her playground, Gia has her mind made up that all she wants is that once in a lifetime chance sexual encounter with a hot guy to redeem herself confidence.
Ethan has been struggling to turn a profit on the camp ground that was once his grandfather's and this years annual rock festival is looking pretty good. With high expectations of a profit this year, Ethan also has one other thing on his mind....to find the mystery women who has taken root in his mind for the last ten years. Not even knowing her name, but naming her "Hottness", Ethan seeks to finally approach this woman and get to know her.
When the opportunity arrives and the two meet, Gia feels like she's the only person in his world by the way he looks at her, and Ethan is captivated by her beautiful eyes and she is everything and more than what he was expecting. However, what they both need and desire seems to be complete opposites of each other and thus creates a problem for both.
Ethan realizes that Gia is looking for that one night stand when in fact he really wants to get to know her, however Gia feels both turned on and rejected by Ethan due to his reluctance to want to rush into sex, but it's what she really wants. Finally deciding to give Gia what she wants, Ethan caves. After their awesome sexual encounter in his office, Gia has a moment of reflection as things aren't how she thought they would be.
I was really enjoying the story, especially Gia's personality once she made up in her mind that she was going to get what she wanted one way or another. I also expected a little more from Ethan in the form of an alpha male but I didn't necessarily get that. Ethan was just a really sweet guy, who really wanted to "do the right thing", I sort of felt like the author was holding back on his character. I was also left feeling like where's the rest of the story at the end. There was no lead into a sequel, though I'm certain there will be one, but the story just cut off......"What the hell?" was all I could say. I also would like more on Trey and Dana as there is definitely a blossoming relationship with them. I would like to read more and hopefully the author really gets into developing the plot for Gia and Ethan.
Rocker Chick meets Hot Gentleman. Ethan wants nothing more than to get to know the mysterious girl that captivated him years ago. This story shows that time has no bounds when it comes to undeniable attraction. Gia's search for something other than what's she's known from past relationships comes to a dead end once she allows herself to give into Ethan. He wants nothing more than to take care of her. Gia wants nothing more than to forget her past.
Easy to read and a great rocker theme to the plot line. Interesting format of book; going between Gia's and Ethan's POV for the same scenes gave the reader an understanding of the situation from both perspectives.
De lo peor que he leído. Una historia de tres libros que ocurren en poco más de un mes. Se habla de un amor adulto, pero parece una historia de niños. Personajes con personalidades inestables que varían constantemente dentro de la historia.
Personalmente me cuesta poder ver lo atractivo de una pareja de cuarenta años que que plantea un amor tan infantil e inmaduro, con historias de vida (por lo menos la de Gia) tan dura. En ningún momento se sabe sobre la historia de Ethan y su familia. La historia parece escrita por una mujer que se olvidó de leer como venía la historia y de qué se estaba perdiendo.
Demasiado poco tiempo para fundar una historia jugosa.
Lamentablemente la escritora parece una adolescente que escribe un fanfiction con su actor favorito. Irrecomendable.
It is way too short. I got it for free, but would have skipped right over a 109 page book for $2.99 and that would have been a bummer because I liked it. The story has somewhere to go, it just took a while to get there and then BAM! it was over. There is a sexual warning, however the sex was pretty minuscule. I am hoping the sexy Ethan will show us some more of his moves in book two. This book was pretty much the set up, so there is a lot about her past and her girlfriends before we get to the nitty gritty of the story, which is pretty much the last chapter.
Gia needs a girls night out after moving one from a bad marriage and thankfully there is a rock festival to fill that need for her. Add that to a three day weekend and Gia has it made. Personally I thought it sounded fun, Gia and her besties getting all 80's rock glammed up to hang and listen to music for the weekend. They weren't necessarily on a mission to get laid, but all the better if they did. Gia meets Ethan while he is working behind the bar and he buys her and her friends a round of drinks. She zeros in on him for her one night stand, little does she know he actually wants more.
Ethan has been to the rock festival for the last nineteen years and for ten of those years he has seen Gia there. He admired her from afar as he noticed the wedding ring, but this year it was different-no ring. Ethan decides to finally approach Gia, only to find out she really isn't in to the whole dating thing, more of a wham-bam-thank-you-mam fits her for the weekend.
I liked the premise of the book, my only complaint would be the length. Just as the story got good, we were done. Although I did see the next one will be out in a few months, I like a bit more in one sitting.
