There is no escape...
I was only supposed to be his replacement secretary for one week. Now he has me trapped in his world of twisted and dark desires. I try to get away and I can’t – but the question is – do I really want to?
Navia Watson is struggling to survive. She has just left school and can’t hold a steady job. Just when she feels that there is no hope, her best friend makes her an offer that she can’t refuse. All she has to do is be a temporary stand in secretary for her friend’s position as the secretary for some billionaire for only a week. One week for some quick cash – how hard can it be? She is in for the surprise of her life when she walks into Jason Black’s office. The dark, sexy billionaire quickly pulls her into his web, one that she can’t unravel herself from. His piercing eyes call to her very soul and the darkness lurking in their depths entices her.
She suspects that the man is dangerous, but she could never have imagined the depth of the mysteries surrounding him. By the time Navia discovers his true nature, it’s too late for her salvation. Even if is she could leave him, there’s no way he will let her go. She is his and she is not sure she really wants to get away.
This is a dark romance novella with NO cliffhanger. Intended for audiences 18+ and not for the fainthearted. Contains situations some readers might find objectionable.
This book is an enjoyable dark novella. It is very fast pace; everything that happens between the two main characters happens pretty quickly, and the author is able to pace the months spent together and apart in a successful way seeing as this is a short story. If you like dark erotic fiction than this is definitely your book.
There are some parts of the book that readers may find questionable- mainly the second erotic scene. I know I had some feelings about this part and wasn’t sure how I was feeling in the moment of reading, but the main character was able to process her own feelings in a way that makes the readers feel better about it. I suppose this is what really makes the story DARK!
Overall, I enjoyed this novella. It is fairly short at 69 pages but readers are able to gain a good connection to the characters as they are pretty open with their lives. For example, you will understand why Mr. Black is more intense in and out of the bedroom. So, if you like a short and dark read that incorporates some kink than pick this one up! And don’t worry, it doesn’t end in a cliffhanger!
