Recommends it for: Anyone who's looking to devour a quick and steamy erotic read.
I wrote it. I read it. Of course I loved it! That's not too bias, is it? :)
This is my first book by this author and I must say it was very well written. I loved the fact that it was written from the male perspective. You don't fine too many erotica novels written from the guy's point of view. Not to mention he had really witty one-liners that kept the book intresting. I will definitely look for more stuff from Ms.Jacobs.
The overall story was about eleven pages long and it was free so as the old saying goes you get what you pay for; although I've come across some free books that were actually quite good and which made me want to purchase more from the author.

Sadly, this wasn't one of those times.

I'm all about characters whether they are heroes or villians. I just didn't care about Regina or Brandon for the simple fact that the story wasn't fleshed out enough to get an idea of who they were. There's a part two fr

Regina plays the sex card with Brandon, withholding any and all until he surrenders to her desires. She wants something more than vanilla sex in the bedroom. Whereas, Brandon doesn’t know if he can perform up to her expectations, nor does know if he wants to. Finally, after several days of enduring Regina’s relentless prick-teasing, Brandon takes the upper hand.

Yes, this is a short story all right, 10 pages. This is written from Brandon’s POV, which I enjo

The Control Freak series by Regina Jacobs is based on an intriguing premise....that of a segment of a married couple's life told from each individual's perspective. Because of this unique premise, it makes more of an impact to read them together, but they can definitely be read on their own though.

First up is Brandon's Story written from the male perspective and is the weaker of these two stories in my opinion. Brandon comes off as unlikable and a bit infantile in his actions. He complains quite

Control Freak: Brandon's Story by Reena Jacobs is a erotic short story. It tells the story of married couple Brandon and Regina. They are a happily married couple of two children and life is good for them except for one slight problem, Regina is a control freak but only in the bedroom.

She is constantly thinking of ways for Brandon to be more sexually aggressive, but Brandon doesn't want to feel like he has to take it in order to receive a climax so he thinks of alternative routes for satisfactio

Quick, to the point, and a fun read. This story was in Brandon's point of view. He is like any other guy, will take sex when he can, however Regina his wife loves it and always wants it. She has a demand from Brandon and has decided to with hold sex until he does this for her. Its a story where we see how long until Brandon gives into her wants that he isn't quite sure he is into. As I stated above, this book is about a 10-15 minute read. Its very short. I look forward to the second book in thi ...more

This is a quick read about a bratty wife needs a good spanking. I felt badly for the husband. He's a sweet vanilla guy who just needs a little loving. She's a sexual blackmail...or basically like the wives I hear about. She holds out on sex until she gets her husband to do what she wants. I say he follows up with a good caning to her ass after he reams it with his cock.

Short but sweet--er, make that sexy! A bit of role reversal in this story about a not-so-dominate husband learning to find happiness (or at least a night of passion!) with his dominate wife. I will be checking out the author's novel. :)

3.5 Short, but sexy story. I liked the male point of view. Wish it would have been longer. I think this could have gotten a lot more interesting with a few more pages...hehehe. Would love to read more about Brandon. ;)

Not a bad steamy short little read. It's a different dynamtic which is nice for a change, the wife always wanting some but the husband not feeling the urge.

This is a short short story, but it's full of...well now. I don't know if it should be any longer since the title really is speaking for itself.
