Trust and Control by Remmy Duchene

Wealthy real estate mogul Christophe Lafavre has everything—except any love life to speak of. Though he has a brilliant head for business, when it comes to relationships, he’s often left fumbling in the dark.

To put a stop to the whispers about his pitiful social life, Christophe takes a suggestion from a friend and goes to a club on masquerade night. There, he meets an elusive hottie who calls himself Raj, and though Christophe cannot see Raj’s face, there’s definitely a connection. Over the phone and online, Christophe and Raj get to know each other. Their conversation is easy and arousing. It’s hard for Christophe to believe the strength of the feelings he’s developing toward a man who is still essentially a stranger, but he can’t get Raj out of his head. They eventually give in to their physical longing—but still Raj refuses to show his face or divulge his identity.

When it comes, the revelation will rock Christophe’s world and redefine more than one relationship in his life.

I really enjoyed this book even though I knew who was who and what was going to happen. I loved Raj and my heart just broke for him; you could feel every emotion he went through and you couldn’t help but feel them yourself. Christophe made me want to scream a few times, but I can see where he is coming from; but once he knew what was going on, why it took him so long to get on board was beyond me. It wasn’t a very long book, so it was a nice lazy Sunday read for me.

Characters: Well written and easy to relate to
Sex: Yes
Religious: It is mentioned several times
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Not sure
Genre: M/M Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I have read a few masked encounter stories before, so was prepared to accept that Christophe did not recognise his best friend is the man behind the mask – and really, why would he think it was him, given that he friend-zoned him many, many years ago. If anything, it is rather sad that Jaswant had lived with those feelings for so long, and was so desperate that he took these steps. As the story develops and we see Christophe warring with himself, I think it would have been good to explain why he struggled so much with the whole idea of love. I thought that Jaswant's sister was essential to the story, and did a good job of keeping the situation under control. Overall a good premise for a story.
