A short-story erotic romance from Shayla Black:
I’m twenty one.
I’m afraid because ever since a sudden, terrible tragedy, I’m alone in the world—except for my brother’s best friend. But now Oliver intends to move back to London.
I’m in love with him. And I have to persuade him to stay…somehow.
Maybe if I tell him I’m a virgin and show him just how far I’m willing to go to keep him, he’ll give in.
Of course, I never expected that he’d be keeping a shocking secret of his own…

Kayla has come to rely heavily on Oliver Ryan. But she’s ready to take an infatuation to the next level. He won’t realize what’s hit him and has no choice but to enjoy the ride. This is a hot and dirty tale almost from the very beginning. The sad part is that it’s such a short story that our enjoyment is over almost as soon as it begins.
It’s a story that you can get read in an hour easy – a couple at the most if you have to stop. I didn’t want to stop. It’s very steamy so keep a glass of cold water, or your cold beverage of choice, handy. And when I mean steamy I mean that we see exactly how into each other these two characters are. If you like a story about a woman who has the hots for her brother’s best friend than this book is for you.
My disappointment is that because the story is so short, it leaves me wondering where they went after the story ended. But this is where my imagination comes in if I so choose. It’s also great because if I have a very short amount of time and I have a book itch that needs to be scratched; I can pick this book up, get my fix, and then go on about my day. Or even better, what a way to end my day.
