Overview Having discovered rats in her luxury apartment, Ashley Stockingdale is living with her friend Kay, a.k.a. Martha Stewart But With Scruples. Soon Kay wants Ashley to buy out half the house so they can remodel it in style. With no hint of a proposal on the horizon from her commitment-phobe boyfriend, Ashley goes on an independent-woman streak. She sinks her savings into the deal. As Seth squirms, wondering if the investment into Kay's house indicates Ashley doesn't see a future with him, the nightmare of remodeling begins. Meanwhile-in lieu of a diamond?-Seth gives Ashley a darling if ill-advised gift: a puppy! More than a trendy accessory, this puppy requires nearly constant attention and more food than a family of four. He's out-growing his pink collars faster than you can say Diva Dog! The mayhem is escalating, but like everything else, Ashley knows she can handle it¿or can she?Also Available from Kristin Billerbeck: What a Girl Wants isbn# 0-8499-4458-9

Reviews - What do customers think about She's Out of Control (Ashley Stockingdale Series #1)?
"Out of Control" Novel- Worth the Price May 25, 2006
Ashley Stockindale is back in a whole new novel. This time, she is no longer the desparate woman we left her as. She now has a boyfriend! Seth Greenwood, a.k.a. bald computer nerd is dating her. But, when her boss Hans gives some advice, will Ashley stick with commitment-shy Seth, or see what other types of men there are out there? Like every business-woman, she is incredibley occupied with her job and flying back and forth from Taiwan to realize love is brewing between Seth and his old-crush, returning "missionary" Arin. Ashley fears the worst until Seth decides to throw her a party. Now, myself and Ashley were sure that this was the time to bring out the ring, but Kristin threw another curveball. No ring, just a slobbery dog. Rhett. You are invited to an adventure worth the 13.99 you paid for the book . Enjoy! P.S. A surprise ending is worth millions as well!
More life adventures for Ashley Wilkes Stockingdale! Mar 24, 2006
"She's Out of Control" gives us further adventures in the life of Ashley Wilkes Stockingdale; a vibrant, funny, somewhat neurotic, thirty-something single female living and working in Silicon Valley. Ashley loves dressing with style and finding a bargain on good clothes. She also loves the Lord and is trying hard to hear His plan for her life.
When we left Ashley at the end of "What A Girl Wants" her long time buddy, Seth, had finally made his move, surprising her with romance by showing up at her brother's wedding in Las Vegas, declaring that he was ready to give their relationship a try. Now, in "She's Out of Control," we pick up nine months later. Ashley and Seth are still dating, but there is no talk of commitment. Seth seems very content to leave their relationship as it is. When Seth's big surprise turns out to be less than she had hoped for, Ashley begins to realize that it might be time for her to make some hard choices.
Then there is Dr. Kevin Novak. Ashley had briefly dated Kevin before she started seeing Seth and before she had realized he was not a Christian. Now, almost a year later, Kevin is on fire for the Lord and still in love with Ashley. But she has a hard time believing that someone as attractive and successful as Kevin is could really care about her. Her fear of being hurt and disappointed again is strong. Will she be able to give up her fears and control of her life to God and trust Him to help her make the right decisions?
Kristin Billerbeck has once again given us a story that is both laugh-out-loud funny and tear-in-your-eye touching. Ashley and her friends are now my friends too. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
