Continental Breakfast by Ella Dominquez

Bella Darcy is personal assistant, muse and plaything to wealthy businessman Mr. Pettifor. Their 9-5 relationship is unconventional, but mutually satisfying.
Mr. Pettifor is alpha male personified - demanding, stern, insatiable, emotionally closed-off and seemingly indifferent to anything that doesn't involve six zeros behind it.
Bella had never wanted more until the day she heard passionate cries that didn't belong to her, coming from his office. 

Deeply hurt and realizing that she cannot be with a man who can so blatantly be with another woman while she is mere feet away, Bella turns in her letter of resignation, throwing Mr. Pettifor into a tailspin. Everything he's worked so hard for now seems insignificant and the woman whom he trained to be everything he wanted, has now decided to move on, leaving him reeling.

This 16,000 word erotic novella was both interesting and annoying.  Ella Dominquez's writing style was a little hard for me to get on board with because she doesn't write how most of us speak.  Their vocabulary was very formal and it came across as being stiff at times.

I'm not one who has jumped on the Fifty Shades train but this novella had just the right amount of everything to make it steamy and sexy and an excellent page turner. Very enjoyable!  Definitely worth your .99 cents to get it on Kindle.
