Forbidden Confessions, Book 9

From the publisher:

What price will he extract for the career of her dreams?

I’m Savannah. I’m a recent college grad in desperate need of a job.

When Billionaire CEO Chad Force interviews me, I’m blindingly attracted to him. But he’s older. Wiser. And notorious about going after what he wants.

That will never be me. Except the way he’s looking at me says it might.

Just how far am I willing to go for the opportunity of a lifetime?


This is publicized as a “two hour read” but I it only took me half that time. It went by so fast because it’s only 99 pages. That means there is no character development or back story and not much plot to speak of either. It is a very steamy romance, but I felt unsettled after reading it. I need more book in my book, I guess.

This was the first time I’ve read this author. I don’t read a lot of self published books because they are not often available to reviewers. I got this one through Black’s publicist – yes, she has one. And I’m pretty sure she has an editor, too, and that is not always the case with either self published writers or some bestselling, traditionally published authors – I wouldn’t swear to it but I don’t think that last Stephen King novel ever saw an editor. But I digress.

I liked this book but wanted more. Black is a very popular author and I can certainly see why. I am not a fan of novellas no matter how well done they are, and this is well done for what it is. If you like sexy romances and don’t want to invest too much time, then this is your book.
