Conflict by M.S. Willis Blog Tour Double Review and Giveaway

***Content Warning - This is a new adult fiction with mature themes. It contains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of sexual violence.***

Conflict is the second book in the Control series. This description contains spoilers for those who have not read book one in the series, entitled Control.

Private Investigator, Paige Stone has always appreciated the independence of her life, however, her world was pitched upside down when she and her roommates were attacked and nearly killed. As a result of the attack by Chris, Paige now finds herself dependent upon Daemon Pierce for a place to live as she hides from Chris. Paige has never lived with a man before and demands that Daemon consider her a "roommate" only, even though it goes against her own desires.

Strong-willed and arrogant, Daemon Pierce has been working hard to protect Paige from Chris and from herself. Letting go of his life as a womanizer, Daemon tries to prove to Paige that she can trust him, even though he refuses to enlighten her as to his past. Daemon struggles to comply with Paige's ridiculous demand to be "roommates" and quickly finds that he has fallen in love with the girl who does nothing but push him away.

Chris is still on the loose and Paige becomes impatient at the amount of time it is taking the authorities to apprehend him. Paige takes it upon herself to hunt Chris down, while still refusing to ask for Daemon's assistance. When Paige discovers a message left by Chris, she devices a plan to locate him while keeping Daemon in the dark as to her plans. Paige's emotional journey once again places her in dangerous situations and when secrets are revealed and decisions are made, Paige has no choice but to look deep within herself to see if she can finally trust the man who will stop at nothing to save her.

Laura's Review:
Conflict has made it official that if M.S. Willis writes it I will read it. I loved it!  However, I couldn't pick a favorite between Control and Conflict because they were both amazing and she did such a great job of picking the story up where she left off and continuing it.  In my opinion the fact that there is the continuity and that I can’t pick one from the other highlights her level of writing.
As I was reading I let out a little sigh and smiled.  It felt like I was catching up with friends I haven’t seen for a while.  I did miss Alex and Annie but it made sense with the story line that they would have smaller roles in this part of the story.  I’m sure we will see more of both of them in Conquer and I can’t wait.
Paige and Daemon, wow, are they hot!!! Even when they weren't hot and heavy in the bedroom they were still steamy.  I loved the development of the two as a couple throughout this book and the story line with them had me in tears at one point.  That’s all I’ll say about that J.
However, I have to say that David really got me in this book.  I wish he was my best friend.  He is so funny and he is always there to support Paige, no matter how crazy her schemes are.  I was cracking up often but I laughed so hard at the exchange between him and Mrs. Hugsmybottom! I got strange looks from my coworkers from all the laughing.
M.S. Willis is an amazing author and she brought these characters to life for me and in both books took me on a roller coaster of emotions.  I can’t wait for Conquer so I can see my friends again.

Stephanie's Review:
Do y'all know how much I love M.S. Willis's books??  Conflict is her second published book and it's a continuation of Control, which I thought was the best book I read all year.  It still is one of them.  Conflict picks up right where Control left off.  The characters definitely come to life in these books and you feel like they are your friends.  You're right there watching everything unfold.  I love books like this.

So, back to our favorite characters, Paige and Daemon.  Daemon is housing Paige in his condo so he can help protect her from Chris.  Y'all know that crazy Psycho Chris??  I mean, really.  Some people will just loose their minds because they were rejected.  Get a life dude!  

Did I mention Paige and Daemon?  Boy, howdy!  Their sexual chemistry is off the chart H.O.T.  I don't see how these two have refrained from having hot monkey sex for so long.  Daemon has the makings of a saint!  Once they finally come together...WOW.  H.O.T.  

But this book is more than hot monkey sex.  It's about an unstable individual gunning to hurt friends and loved ones of the one girl who turned him down.  Everyone is afraid for Paige...except Paige.  She is one stubborn cookie.  What will it take for her to get it through her head, Chris is a no joke bad dude???  (read the book, so you can see how bad!)

The third and final book for Paige and Daemon comes out next month.  I'm so excited to see how their story ends.  Paige has had lots to process about the people she has surrounded herself with.  Will she learn to lean on Daemon?  How will things be between Paige and Alex?  What will become of David & Annie?

Look for Conquer release toward the end of August to see how and where this story goes.
