Relinquish Control has just opened its doors in Seattle, and already we are not shy for customers. Relinquish Control is an exclusive escort service catering to the most distinguished customers, from business magnates to foreign royalty. This proven and well-established international business offers an elite selection of women who are ready and willing to attend to your every need with no questions asked. Confidentiality is our special obligation.

Jewell Weston is homeless and desperate at age twenty-four. Two years ago, she quit her job to care for her ailing mother and her young brother; the medical bills incurred because of the cancer that killed her mother two months ago took everything the family had, and the state then took away her brother, now age ten. The only way for her to get the boy back is by finding a job and securing a home.

When she’s approached by a woman in cashmere and pearls who tells her she can change her life, and is handed a card with the business name Relinquish Control on it, she thinks she has nothing to lose by calling the phone number. Maybe this will be the answer to her prayers, a way to save her little brother from the nightmarish foster home he’s been placed in.

Blake Knight, known to the world as cold and without a heart, is given an exclusive membership to Relinquish Control by his devilish younger brother, who thinks it would be amusing to make his staid brother squirm. Little does this brother realize that Blake does indeed have unusual desires that Relinquish Control can cater to perfectly. What started as a joke turns out to be just what Blake needs. Though the world sees this man as deliberate and emotionless, it’s nothing but a façade. What lies underneath would shock all those who know him.

When he and his two brothers were six, eight and ten, they were tied up and forced to watch while their parents were murdered. The image has been burned into their minds, though they’ve tried to forget, leaving each of them guarded and unwilling to give their trust to anyone other than each other. No one is allowed to have their hearts. The brothers would never think of letting down their guard with anyone else, certainly not with a woman.

Follow Blake and Jewell’s journey and see if they can find a happily ever after…

Since her father, Jack Ashcroft, took his own life thirteen years ago, she has lived in the shadow of scandal. When her grandmother’s personal secretary is brutally murdered, Riley begins to suspect everything she has been told as a child was a lie. Feeling betrayed, she vows to expose her family’s darkest secrets.

Josh Kincaid, an investigative reporter, is on the heels of a major story. Thirteen years ago, Harrison Taylor’s fate lay in the hands of his lawyer, Jack Ashcroft. In the midst of rumors and scandal, Ashcroft committed suicide and Taylor’s fate was decided. Taylor is a convicted killer, but his grandmother has never stopped believing in his innocence. Now, the woman of meager means has offered a reward for any information that will free her grandson. Kincaid’s interest is peaked, but it isn’t until an anonymous tip suggests that the convicted killer was framed that he takes on the case.

Determined that the sins of the past be revealed, Kincaid and Riley search together for answers to the questions that were silenced by Jack Ashcroft’s death. But there is a killer out there that has already proven he will do whatever necessary to keep those secrets buried.

Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

Rating: 5 Stars

The title of this murder mystery should have been Indiscretion AND MUCH MORE!  This was my first taste of Polly Iyer’s storytelling and I found it riveting.  Setting the scene in a beach community always is a nice way to go but the buildup in the beginning chapters really just sets the stage for a roller coaster ride of delight and emotions set in both a beach paradise and back alleys filled with underworld characters.
The author brings to life those things us good gals wonder about such as seductive affairs with handsome and dangerous letharios and suspenseful moments during dangerous “Bonnie” and her potential “ex-Clyde” action! This book finds something in you that is familiar and then shows you how different things could be with a single choice or action that is out of the norm of every day life.  One decision can find you in a world of intrigue and running for your life.
Seduction, suspense, genuine characters of substance, famiky loyalties straining, a puzzling thrill ride, and this read has all I need for an exciting evening of reading.  I couldn’t put it down.
My only issue….there wasn’t MORE.
*I received an advanced review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
