Degrees of Control (A Prestian Series Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Heather Bahm

Degrees of Control (Prestian Series, #3)Degrees of Control by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Degrees of Control, by Via Mari, is the third book of the Prestian series in the continuing epic story of Chace and Katarina. In this contemporary romance, we have traveled the trials and tribulations that these characters as they attempt to find themselves and forge forward in their lives, whether together or apart. So many choices ahead and watching Chace and Katarina navigate those kept me on the edge of my seat wondering which way they would go. I have enjoyed reading their story over the previous books and I really liked how the author continued in this third book. This was well thought out with a captivating story line. This is a series that is worth reading at least once.

Degrees of Control by Via Mari
Five Stars

Degrees of Control is the third book in the Prestian Series by Via Mari. This series just keeps getting better and better, it filled with action, suspense, mystery and hot romance. This series should be read in order as the books begin where the last book leaves off. This whole series has had me on the edge of my seat. I find myself reading well into the night not being able to put the book down till I’ve read the last page. This book follows Chase and Katarina in safety lock down as the try to find out who is trying to take down her father’s family and Chase and Katarina with them. I can’t wait to see what is coming in the next installment and look forward to reading Ms. Mari’s backlist. This series will keep you coming back for more.

Degrees of Control (A Prestian Series Book 3) by Via Mari ~ Review by Liz Vrchota

Degrees of Control (Prestian Series, #3)Degrees of Control by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Degrees of Control is the third book in the Prestian series from Via Mari. I have read the previous two books and in order. I would highly recommend that you do so as well or you will find that you are a bit dazed and confused as to what is going on with our characters at this point in the books. Each book really breaks down a stage of a BDSM/intimate relationship. In this one it is centered on the aspect of control.

I must say I enjoyed the other two books much more than this one. Not that this wasn’t a great read and I won’t be back for more because I sure will! These are fantastic reads, and ultimately this book made sense amongst the greater picture of things. I do believe once you have read the entire series you will see this for yourself. I’d be divulging just a bit too much if I explained too much more in my opinion.

The one reason I struggled was Kate in this book was a big pain in my rear end. I seriously found myself yelling out loud several times at her. This isn’t a bad thing though. Good books involve the reader right? She just really needs to let go of some insecurities herself and learn to trust not only others but herself.

The steam and kink is still there to keep you blushing and fanning yourself ladies, and don’t worry there is plenty of intrigue and adventure to balance it all out perfectly. I personally can’t wait to see what will come next for these two in the book four, Degrees of Power. Thanks for another great Via Mari!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Degrees of Control by Via Mari is the third book in the Prestian Series. This is not a stand-alone story and you will be a little confused without reading the previous stories. I have enjoyed how Via Mari can keep my interest in the story. She does have fully developed characters that I have grown to love. This story continues where Chase asked Katarina to marry him and she turned him down. Now that seems harsh because she does love Chase but doesn’t want Chase to get hurt. The story goes on from this one point into an amazing mystery/thriller/romance all in one. I am not going to go on because I do not want spoilers in my review. Will Chase and Katarina have a happy ending? Will there be more heart ache in store for Chase and Katarina? You have to read this book to find out the answers to these questions.

Degrees of Control is the third book in the Prestian series by Via Mari. It is an erotic romantic suspense- full of emotion, highs and lows, mystery, action, danger, secrets, danger, passion, and more. I have been really enjoying this series, zipping my way through each book just because I need to know what’s going to happen. I had high expectations for this book and am happy to say that it was just as good as the first two, and definitely kept me hooked the whole way through. This book should be read as part of the series as there is a bridging story that continues from book to book, plus there are all the character introductions and other relevant information that you will need in order to really appreciate the story/series- so I strongly advise you to read the first two books before starting off on this one.
After the events in the previous book this one picks up with Kate deciding that Chase’s choices aren’t for her and has turned down his marriage proposal. But circumstances arise where she will need to play along and put up a front of being a happy couple. With their chemistry simmering just below the surface, it doesn’t take much for their passions to unleash. But with so much still up in the air, Katarina has some decisions to make……
Kate really frustrated me a lot through this story with all her trust issues, being hard to get along with, and generally being difficult and stubborn- placing herself and others in danger. I wanted to yell at her at times.
There is plenty of suspense and the tension was built to a very high level- which had me on the edge of my seat a lot of the time. There were a few unexpected developments and twists which kept thing quite interesting and had me clamouring to know how it all works out. Bring on the next book!

Thank you, Ms. Mari!

5 Stars

This is the 3rd part of this series and I loved it as much as the first. There was a lot going on and there were more than a few times I was like noooooo this can not happen, and there were more than a few times I wanted to smack Katarina upside her head..I couldn’t believe a couple things she did in this book, and if she had just listened half the time things would have gone much smoother. In saying that there were a few times I loved her taking control and then her poor security detail…LOL

Like I said there is a lot going on in this story but it all leads to one person and I’m hoping that book 4 will finally get this person figured out and out of the lives of Katarina and Chase and everyone else close to them. I can honestly say I’ve never seen people fly so much before in my life. Everytime I turned the page they were boarding this jet or this helicopter so I don’t have a book hangover, I have severe jet lag lol

I’m moving right on to book 4 as soon as I’m done writing this review. I love this series and I love this author, by now I’ve usually lost interest in a normal series but this one has me totally hooked and is as fresh as the beginning which just shows the talent this author has and her words flow so effortlessly.

I love it and can’t wait for more!

Degrees of Control is the third book in Via Mari’s Prestian series. Do not start with this book, you need to read the books in the order as then you really get the story, the journey … I truly think that the series gets better and better with each book … the writer’s attention to detail becomes clearer and clearer and you feel as if you are co-existing with Kate and Chase, right there … next to them! There are so many twists and turns … one moment you are slowly floating along, enjoying the ride and then suddenly you are at the edge of your seat, almost falling off!
Degrees of Control picks up after Kate has rejected Chase’s proposal for marriage. She struggles with trust and at times with what is right and what is wrong and she is so strong and at times I wish that we could also see another side of hers … on the other hand, I can so totally relate to it as when we are in control then at the end of the day there is no one else we can blame …
There are some twists here that you do not see coming so it is really good that there is at least one more book for us to enjoy the journey and I am wondering, what lesson does Kate have left to learn …

Degrees of Control was a great 5 star read and book three in the Prestian Series.

We continue where book two left off.
Katarina is confused on her feelings and struggling with trusting Chase and has declined his proposal. How can she love a man she can’t trust? Chase convinces Katarina to pretend to be engaged until everyone is safe. This is where things start to take an interesting twist.

There is so much that goes on, suspense, danger and several twists and turns along with a few surprises. All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. Katarina frustrated me at times with her stubbornness but she was still the feisty and strong willed woman that Chase fell in love with. The heat was definitely turned up between Katarina and Chase, some kindle melting moments for sure. I was happy with how things came out but now I need the next book in the series to see just where everything leads. Via Mari does a great job of pulling you right in with her writing and you won’t want to stop until your done. If your looking for a great series, 1-click and get started today on Prestian Series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Degrees of Control by Via Mari is the third book in the Prestian series. This story is amazing, so glad I have been keeping up with it and can’t wait to see what happens next with Katarina and Chase.

These two definitely haven’t had the easiest time together. Lots of interesting things happen to them again in this book. Feels like these two will never catch a break and just get to be a normal couple.

The one thing that is different is Katarina decides she isn’t going to sit there passively and watch everything happen. She helps out in a big way.

I love Katarina and Chase together and can’t wait to see what adventures they go through next, I seriously doubt whatever happens next will go without something happening to one of them.

5 out of 5 stars

Degrees of Control is the third installment of Via Mari’s Prestian Series and all I can really say is wow. So many series start to fizzle out by the third book but somehow this one is still hot!
I would recommend starting the series from the very beginning if you haven’t already because each story builds upon the last, picking up where the others left off. Not to mention, you wouldn’t want to miss a single plot twist.
I would have to say Degrees of Control is my favorite installment of the series thus far. Intrigue, edge of your seat suspense and even a few tears shed all while keeping up with the steamy factor of the last two books.
Once again Chase and Katarina prove to be enjoyable characters with obstacles to overcome within and outside of their relationship and to say I’m invested is an understatement. Once again Via Mari hit it out of the park and left me craving more.
