More Than Pleasure You by Shayla Black-Blog Tour

We are beyond excited to be celebrating this release from Shayla Black with you by being part of the blog tour! MORE THAN PLEASURE YOU is part of her More Than Words series and it is releasing as part of 1001 Dark Nights. Check out an excerpt and book trailer from the title below. 


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black comes a new story in her More Than Words series… 

Can I convince her our hot but temporary engagement should last forever? I’m Stephen Lund, confirmed bachelor…and son of a successful billionaire whose sins I can’t forget—or forgive. Though he insisted I get over his transgressions, I can’t. So I put space between us with a temporary getaway to Maui. My rental’s sexy caretaker, Skye Ingram, is a beautiful distraction. Yeah, it’s a terrible time to start a fling, but I can’t help wanting to give her every bit of pleasure she’s willing to take. When Skye needs a date to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding, I’m game to play her pretend fiancĂ©. The jerk should see what he passed up…and that I’m holding her now. But our pretend engagement begins to feel real. Our passion certainly is. So are the consequences. When I’m confronted with the reality that our lives are now irrevocably entwined, I have to choose between leaving Skye to return to the life—and wealth—I’ve always known or abandoning everything familiar to start over with the woman who awakened my heart. 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Novellas can be tough. There's a lot that needs to happen in a shorter amount of time (or literally in pages) and it still needs to feel real, and to engage the reader.

Stephen and Skye meet when he is staying in the property she is in charge of upkeep for...and, he is there earlier than expected, so he is a bit of a surprise to her, and their meeting is one that neither was at their best for.

Lots happens to them, and there is a lot to work through. Her ex and his family wanting them to be together, the things he is dealing with regarding his father, and a bit of a surprise that ends up changing everything for them.

I struggled a little with this one. I think there was too much going on for me to fully feel that I was engaged in the relationship. And, once I was finally really feeling connected, something else was added into the relationship.

For a novella to really work for me, I need to be able to feel fully invested in the characters even though it is a shorter story. I never quite got to this point...although, that said, I did still enjoy this title and I recommend it.
