His Undeniable Secret
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…

His Undeniable Secret
Kayla, her brother Shane and his best friend Oliver, had been a family unit for over three years until Shane is killed in an automobile accident. After Shane’s affairs have been put in order, Oliver drops a bomb on Kayla, now that she’s graduating from college he is returning to London.
This little novella is a quick, hot read as Kayla tries to convince Oliver that she’s not just Shane’s kid sister anymore. She wants to make their relationship very adult.
Shayla Black is one of my favorite authors of erotica. Nevertheless, His Undeniable Secret feels a tad bit rushed to me. I would have liked a little more substance at the beginning, but the ending finished strong! Shayla knows how to pack a lot into a small package and I found this light read satisfying.
A Shayla Black novella is a great way to kill some time if you ever find yourself waiting at the airport or for some dreaded appointment.
