Control Freak by Brianna Hale
Goodreads

Total control. I need it in every aspect of my life. Some would say that makes me an asshole. A freak. But as long as everything’s exactly how I want it, I’m completely flexible.
I’m kidding.
Okay, I’m not kidding.
Lacey needs someone in her life who’s bigger and scarier than her demons, and she wants that man to be me. Her boss. The Viking in a suit.I hope she understands what she’s getting into. This daddy isn’t going to pat her on the head and tell her she’s a good girl for nothing. Especially not when she’s spinning out of control.
Author's note: this book includes depictions of eating disorder recovery.

Every day is a battle for Lacey Petrou. Enjoying the simplest things in life is a struggle; the very things that so many takes for granted. Little things like eating and drinking has become emotionally and physically crippling. Every day a journey not to relapse.

“She’s always with me, spitting insults and cruelty and telling me I’m unlovable, fat and greedy.”

Museum Director Stian Blomqvist slash Swedish ‘Viking’ finds himself without an assistant. Known as being controlling and difficult to work with, it is by chance that Lacey finds herself as his new assistant.

Stian is a disciplined man, with enough kindness and patience to offer a form of therapy that could assist Lacey with healing. A relationship formed over mutual respect, trust, control and ultimately submission, it is the perfect combination.

“She trusted me. I like to be wanted, and I fucking love to be needed.”

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Brianna Hale’s works. 
Where she is the queen of daddy kink romances with a storyline that always captures your heart, I believe this time around ‘Contol Freak’ will appeal to a broader mass of readers. 
YES, our hero thrives on being called ‘daddy’ but its irrelevant. This story was the right amount of character building and sexual heat to be perfect. 
The author did an exceptional job dealing with the seriousness of an eating disorder without glossing over it. But it didn’t eclipse the story-line. It made it that more bittersweet.
If you haven’t read a Brianna Hale book before, now’s the time….

“I’m rough with your body sometimes, but I’ll always be gentle with your soul. She bruises far more easily.”
