Controlling Assets by Shae Coon is the second interconnected standalone in the Marron House series. This novel follows the very successful Caleb Marron in his fight to take down his enemy, Talia Stone.
In this spicy dark romance, Caleb and Talia try to fight their desires until it becomes clear that there’s something between them.
While this genre isn’t one that I typically read (I’m not the biggest fan of dark romance), I absolutely loved Shae’s style of writing. She was clear and concise in her diction, and every character really seemed to pop off the page. The family dynamic between Caleb, his sister, and his parents is one that you’ll absolutely adore. Talia and her traumatic past will reach into your heart and squeeze. Her anxiety, fear, and, most importantly, strength, is extremely relatable to readers.
The enemies to lovers story between Caleb and Talia will leave fans of dark romance revealing in their own fantasies.
This story is filled with anticipation and excitement, and the last fifty pages will have you screaming out loud, praying that a happy ending is the one you’ll receive. While I won’t spoil anything in this book, I will tell you as a first time reader of Shae Coon, that this book is one that dark romance readers won’t want to miss.
While reading this book, please keep in mind that there are very sensitive issues that are discussed thoroughly, albeit not taken lightly. This novel addresses subjects of human sex trafficking, rape, and domestic abuse.
The ending of this book will definitely leave you wanting more, and luckily you’ll get the chance soon when the NEXT Marron House book is out.
