Degrees of Power (Prestian Series Book 4) by Via Mari – Review by Tracy Wilkin

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

Degrees of Power is book four in the Prestian Series by Via Mari. Katarina just captivates me. As a character, she is a courageous and fearless woman, paving her path in a man’s world. Chase and Katarina must face many obstacles, be prepared to do what it takes to get the best result and reconfirm the love they have for one another. The level of affection runs so deep between them, it has its own palpable heartbeat. A profound reaction whenever they were in each others vicinity.

Everything about this story was remarkable. It was evocative, suspenseful and unique. Nothing was omitted from the Prestian Series, with a reader getting the full impact of this powerful collection. A highly energetic and dangerously addictive series. This one is a must read. 5 stars

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

Degrees of Power by Via Mari is the fourth and final book in the Prestian series. When I first finished the book I wasn’t sure how I felt about the way she ended it, but after a little bit I have decided that I liked it. Part of the reason is Jenny had her own series and I fully expect Katarina and Chase to pop up.

Katarina and Chase have had quite the whirlwind romance with so many different things happening to them or the people they love, never a dull moment for them.

They have learned so much in the short time they have been together, the biggest lesson is trust and how important it is to a relationship.

I have some questions about some if the things that happened but like I said I’m hoping to see them in Jenny’s story and get those questions answered.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Book 4 in this series and I honestly cannot get enough of it! This is by far one of the best series that I have read in a very long time. The author has been able to easily hold my attention over the four books – I didn’t want this book to end as I was not looking forward to the book hangover that I knew was inevitable! The author’s writing is exciting, she pulls you in from the very first word and I just love the characters that she has created! I love Kate and Chase – I can’t help but desperately want them to find their happily ever after! They have such an intense chemistry that felt natural and the author wrote these scenes between them really well.
I am gutted that this series is over, it’s been an absolute pleasure to read and I will definitely be looking to read more from this author again in the future. Thank you Via Mari for a fantastic 5 star series – I have loved every single minute of it!

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

 

Degrees of Power is the fourth and final book in the Prestian series by Via Mari. I have loved reading this series and had been wondering how Via Mari was going to pull everything together, so I had fairly high expectation for this final book. After reading it I have to say what an incredibly captivating conclusion this turned out to be. Via Mari didn’t rest on her laurels, keeping the story amped up right till the end. The story/series is a great erotic romance – full of suspense, emotion, mystery, action, danger, secrets, humour, and passion. I really recommend that you read the rest of the series before starting on this one, as there are details, character information, and a bridging storyline you really should know in order to fully appreciate and get the most out of this reading experience.
Katarina and Chase have been through quite a lot, and this book sees them dealing with a lot of the ‘issues’ that have plagued them. Their relationship has evolved over the course of the series and we got to follow them through all the various ‘stages’, and the highs and lows that they’ve experienced. But along with their relationship development and finding their ‘balance- there are other unexpected developments which add an element of suspense and intensity to the whole storyline. It was quite gripping in places. The powerful chemistry between Chase and Katarina produced some sizzling scenes- but there was also some more tender moment, some humour, and emotion to be had as well.
This was a really great story that easily pulled me in and kept me engrossed the whole way through. A fantastic way to end the series. I can’t wait to see what Via Mari does next….

Thank you, Via Mari!

Degrees of Power, Book 4 in the Prestian Series by Via Mari
4 out of 5 Stars

This story is a continuation. Please, do yourself a HUGE favor and read the first books in this series. You will love the,. Katarina and Chase are continuing on their insane journey of life and passion.
Katarina is a strong woman. And by that I mean super strong. This woman has gone through the ringer and has come out standing on the other side. While she still is needing to come to terms with the trust issues that she has in her past and those that she is currently facing with Chase, she grows by leaps and bounds as a person in this installment and you can tell how much power she has as a female character in a book of strong male leads.
Chase holds his own. He loves Kate. He is even able to put up with her independent nature and her distrustful side. He grows with her. He learns her and she learns him. He begins to understand that within a relationship, especially one founded as theirs was, there is a lot of give and take. Chase is a strong foundation of which they both stand and he is determined to not let them fail.
I highly recommend this series. You will fall in love with this story. This author has a masterful way of creating beautifully detailed scenes and intricate characters who are strong, independent and full of life.

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!

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 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!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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

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.

Since finishing book 2 in this series I have been itching to start book 3 – I needed more of Chase and Katarina’s story and I was not disappointed at all! This is definitely turning out to be a 5 star series! The author took the drama to the next level in this book and for the first time I started questioning whether I actually like Katarina or not, this is the first time that I have ever had my feelings change towards a main character so far into the series and I love it! For me it means the author is keeping her characters fluid and they are evolving with the storyline! I still love Chase; he is an alpha male but with a softer side which I really like about him. There is still an intense sexual chemistry between then two of them in this story which doesn’t seem to be showing signs of getting any less – although Katarina had turned down Chase’s proposal I am still rooting for them as a couple!
I am absolutely looking forward to the fourth book in the series and seeing what happens with Chase and Katarina!
