"Cassie had been looking out for her sister Jessica what felt like her whole life. So when Jess starts dating a man whom Cassie believes poses a threat to her sister's safety, she steps in, insisting on meeting him. The last thing she expected to happen was that she would fall for the man's cousin--who just so happens to be Cassie's boss! And she certainly wasn't expecting him to reveal the deep, dark secrets he'd been hiding from her for years. Can their love survive, or will Cassie run away from the opportunity in front of her?
"What She Didn't Know" is an erotic romance parody short story intended for mature audiences only. Length - approximately 11,000 words"
3.5 I really liked it stars
So this one is way better than the other book I read by I. Ronik [Better Luck Next Time]
All the things that bothered me in the first one weren't here (save to one). This book was full if good stuff - Cassie's voice was sure and likable but also a little sarcastic, the chemistry was good, the writing style was better- with both Cassie's and Seth's POVs.
What I liked about the other book was still very much present here- the rational voice of the heroine, the hot sex, and the fantastic twist on the overwrought plot.
Then what bothered me? everything is wrapped up fast and neat, and even though I'm a huge supporter of HEA I found it a little disturbing, but maybe that's just wanting more of the story? (*cough* FULL LENGTH NOVEL *cough*).
Also, I want to feel more- feel the love dripping from the pages. I tend to be a cold, disconnected person at times. So I need to be convinced of how deep the feelings really are. And it almost happened here.
however, I think I. Ronik is an author to watch for, her ideas are great!
