Persuasion Skills - Laurel Cremant I was lent this book because I basically piss and moan all over the place about IR reads that are novella length books that are nothing but sex, sex, sexy times with very little good relationship content or writing.

A friend lent me this explaining I might like it. She was correct. This is a great example of an author who effectively used the novella length. She didn't try to pack too much story in the short-ish length. And the story she did tell was wonderfully presented. There was explicit sex scenes but the relationship she established between the two characters made them feel like they fit with the story.

The writing was very good with a lot of wit to it.

And yes....I do wish this were longer. Even though I think the story worked, I would have liked to spent more time with the two characters and gotten the full relationship.
