Survivalist Russ Donovan is known on TV as the “Wildest Man In The World.” The last thing this headstrong Aries guy needs is to be wrangled into a cross-promotional TV special with a popular homemaker—even a sexy little thing like Susannah Stone. Besides, the Adirondacks in the dead of winter is no place for amateurs...especially a stubborn homemaker who's determined to show him up every chance she gets.

Susannah's a working single mom who knows plenty about roughing it. She can take anything this mountain man dishes out. Now Russ and Susannah are taking their competitive rivalry to new levels, and not even the canned beef stew is safe. Then Russ and Susannah's on-camera sparks turn into a sizzling off-camera romance, and their two conflicting worlds collide. Sure, major differences can turn chemistry red-hot...they also make compromise nearly impossible.

Erin: The phrase opposites attract is one we all know and is the premise for Amanda Usen’s new book, Impulse Control. Cross a rugged survivalist with a spunky homemaker and you get plenty of sparks. The premise of these two totally opposite people coming together to be on a TV show totally piqued my interest, and boy am I glad I gave this book a try.

Russ Donovan is charming, flirty, and yeah, really hot. Susannah Stone was feisty and sharp, and man did she ever push all of Russ’s buttons? So much fun to watch them cajole and snipe at one another. Of course with all that bickering comes grudging respect for the other and then the attraction. This was even more fun to watch play out, how their first impressions changed and morphed into real feelings. I really liked Russ’s easy going manner and I liked how strong and confident Susannah was. And yeah, once they both got over their initial reluctance to being forced into the situation, the sparks were flying all over the place.

Russ and Susannah were totally likeable, believable characters. The writing was great, the story line refreshing, and I loved almost every minute of this book. There are a few eye rolling moments, but nothing that took away from my overall enjoyment. Pick this one up people, you won’t be sorry.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
