I was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I grew up with a short-tempered, alcoholic father, and faithful Christian mother. My escape was reading and music. I think I was the only kid with my nose in a book during the Air Force Academy football games.
As a rebellious teen I was very self-destructive and always getting into trouble. Needing a change I followed my father's footsteps and joined the Air Force.
During my four year enlistment I was stationed at Nellis AFB, Las Vegas, Nevada where I met my wonderful husband. After our tour ended we moved to Southern Indiana, on the outskirts of Louisville, Kentucky. I have two teenage sons whom I try to embarrass but have yet to succeed.
Now, as the president of Kentuckiana Authors, I coordinate book fairs, signings, and parties for the group. This keeps me busy along with my writing.

At the end of Book #1, we had a failed suicide attempt by murderer which OMG turned out to be her boyfriend Chris and the people she killed -most of them had been his family WTF. I didn't see that coming to be honest. In this book, Hilda has been kidnapped by Chris and Ben. Cosette is feeling guilty that she alter ego Bonnie made more killings and more so the fact that her suicide mission failed. She didn't want to be in this world, and she is trying so hard not to let Bonnie out again. During this book, Cosette's friends will discover hers and Chris's secrets and to their surprise want to be part of their group. This will lead to a weird reverse harem sort of relationship and massive orgies etc. and kissing one another.
Meanwhile, one of the officers will discover Cosette's secret and use her for their advantage to help kill criminals and those who deserve it. I have to admit, I was enjoying this book until about halfway, and then the characters just started to frustrate me, and the book seemed to drag on and on and just go full on weird for me and entirely off tangent - like seriously how are the parents and police this stupid to see what is happening. I am now questioning whether to continue with the next book as this is turning out weirder than I expected initially.

This picks up right where the first one left so I highly recommend you read that one first so that you do not get lost with this second book. There’s so much I want to say about Controlling Cosette but I can’t say much as I am afraid that it would spoil this for anyone who is reading this review. I can say that this is a fast-paced story that continues to let readers immerse themselves and get lost within the storyline and the fantastic narration. The author weaves a story that leaves you holding your breath with this well-developed story chock full of fantastic characters and I look forward to getting my hands on the next installment.

This is book two in My Beautiful Suicide Series. I highly recommend you read book one first before jumping into this one.

Can’t really say too much without spoiling it. I will say it’s a great continuation to the story and I can’t wait to read more. These books are gripping. Once I started I was hesitant to put down until I’ve finished it.

Another interesting read!

So here I am, a senior citizen reading this book about high school teens and loving it. I was warned by the author is was a twisted novel and she was right. The twists and turns kept me up all hours to see what would happen next. Amazing and haunting. Good job Atty!

So disturbing and wicked. Face paced and creepy. There is nothing I can say that won't reveal spoilers other than to say my friends were not that...enabling, lol. Seriously, it's a perfect continuation to My Beautiful Suicide without suffering from 2nd book syndrome. Time for book 3!

"If you don't ask the question, I won't have to lie."
Controlling Cossette continues from the conclusion of My Beautiful Suicide, and it is definitely advisable to be familiar with that book before commencing this, the second in the series.

Being impressed with the originality and pace of book one, as well as being intrigued by the futures of the main protagonists, this reader came to this second part with pleasurable anticipation combined with the expectation of something new and different. It would be very hard to leave even a brief synopsis without spoilers, suffice it to say this reader would have preferred the story to had ended with book one, the originality of My Beautiful Suicide seemingly disintegrating into an alternative Buffy, the Vampire Slayer plot line, with additional off screen sex romps and sado masochism. And loads more baths! With a third book which will, hopefully, return to something more creative, book two has the feeling of a filler between the tales, setting the scene for a more fulfilling climax.

Once again, however, the narration is excellent, with Michelle Sparks becoming the main protagonist, Cossette Hugo, interpreting her first person account with clarity and enthusiastic emotion. Another good performance which kept this reader listening to the end.

My thanks to the rights holder of Controlling Cossette who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Sadly, it was a disappointment and, if I'm totally brutal, unlike it's predecessor, rather tedious. Not a book that I could recommend: it didn't even have the feel of plausibility. However, I am still interested in reading book three to see where this whole enterprise is headed. So still fascinating on some levels.
And I really like the striking simplicity of the cover.

If you like them dark and twisty, this is a series for you!
This book went in a different direction from the first book, this one was more about Cosette and her addictions and need to control! While the first book reminded me of the movie Heathers, this one didn't at all! This book picks up right where book 1 ends and it ends leaving you wanting so much more. There were times when I thought "OMG, what am I reading" and times when I was thinking "this is so F'd up" and I loved all of those times! I can't say much more without giving spoilers so I'll just say this book sucked me in and I can't wait for book 3!

The narration was great, perfect choice for these characters!

Wow! She tried the Beautiful Suicide, but alas lived through it and is left here to deal with the aftermath... of what she's become, of what she's done, and what she'll do now.

Another dark & twisty book in the series, this will take you in, chew you up & spit you back out. Starts where the last book left off, and the you thought you were off that crazy ride, but now it's back!

Mind-bending, twists, intrigue, and darkness all mix and mingle in this second dose. Take it, and enjoy the ride!
Great writing and narration :)

This was good,but not as good as book 1.I found it just a bit too far out there to be believable.The creepiness was more how everyone 'loves' Cosette. Michelle Sparks was a fine narrator for all characters.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any more messed up, boom there it is. So freaking twisted.

This is like a car wreck you can't turn away from. Whereas the first book saw a young girl fighting deep depression and truly horrible things happening to her, this book is the birth of a serial killer. That part honestly didn't bother me - it's teenage Dexter. But the sex - we're talking fade to black, but orgies - it was a bit much for me. I think it's that they are teens and we're still observing them in high school.

We're observing a true sociopath be born and it's disturbing. Also disturbing is the weird contrast with her friend Mattie, I devout Christian who has like a prophetic sense or something. The frequent biblical references, along with Christian music allusions feels so weird in this setting. Like the religious season of Dexter actually 😂.

Anyway, it's disturbing and yet compelling. The narration is fantastic and I'm too far gone. I'll be continuing and we'll see where it goes.

Controlling Cosette My Beautiful Suicide book two by Atty Eve Controlling Cosette is book 2 of the My Beautiful Suicide series by Atty Eve. It picks up right where My Beautiful Suicide ended. I thought it odd that Atty Eve named the first book and the series the same, but then this is an odd story. It is peculiar and very good.

For those who have not read book 1, stop reading this review right now and go get it. You will be glad you did. Although there is a lot of reaching back – so you are not lost when meeting the characters, and the situation Cosette is in, which is namely, trading in her addiction for murder for a sex one with a slight touch of sadistic rage – here is a quick rundown.

Cosette finds herself struggling to be a good girl and not end up back in hell. Now, not only are her friends trying to help her cope with being outed as the murderous hero who killed the Poser gang and saved Hilda, but she is becoming the queen of her high school clique and they are being pulled in by her deviant sexual desires. However, the closer they get to her, the more they want to know what it is like to be a killer. And the more they question her, the closer she comes to going over the edge. And taking them all along with her.

In Controlling Cosette, Atty Eve gives us a couple of dilemmas. Is trading one addiction for another really a road to redemption? Is it still a sin if no one gets hurt? Where is the line between hero and villain? When you enjoy killing bad people, does that makes you a bad person? And finally, I’ll ask you this, “Can you really have a good orgy without someone dying?”

Read Controlling Cosette and find out the answers to these titillating questions and more, very odd turn of events, and a very good five-star story.

Okay now this is more like a Dexter reincarnation. Except Dex is a girl (Cozy), Hannah Mckay debuts in season 1 (My Beautiful Suicide) instead of season 7 and Harry (Officer Jenny Crance) is still alive. Also unlike in Dexter, everyone knows about Cozy's dark passenger. The blood on the paper towels thing also brings me back to Dex. Of course there are plenty of things that make it different which I'm still in a love-hate relationship with. I'm really happy Chris and Cozy are still together but I wish it was just them cause i really liked the Bonnie and Clyde aspect. It doesn't feel like that anymore... But then again that's probably a good thing cause Bonnie and Clyde has already been done...i was just looking forward to it heh. But who knows how I'll feel by book 3. Which I'm starting.....Now.
