Book Description

This is a newly edited copy of Forever Black.

When Ellery moved to New York with her boyfriend, she thought they’d live happily ever after in their small New York apartment. She never thought he’d pack his bags and leave because he “needed space.”

With her newfound single status and fear of being alone, Ellery buries herself in her artwork and paintings until one night she helps a mysterious intoxicated stranger get home safely. Little did she know the mysterious stranger is none other than CEO and millionaire Connor Black. After finding Ellery in his kitchen the next morning and assuming she broke his #1 rule about sleepovers, he becomes intrigued, not only by her stubbornness and defiance, but by her kindness.

Connor Black, emotionally dead and damaged, that stemmed from a personal tragedy, made a vow to never love or fall in love with a woman, until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident. After she opens up and shows him her world, Connor starts to feel emotions and feelings he never knew existed. Despite the rumors and warnings regarding Connor Black and his use and misuse of women, Ellery finds herself being drawn into his world.

Ellery knows they can never be together because she is harboring a deep secret that could destroy Connor emotionally forever.

Join Connor and Ellery as they embark on a journey of courage, love and strength. Will it be enough to save them?

**18+ For adult situations and language**

1.0 out of 5 stars Like a car wreck...I just couldn't look away... March 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
1 ½ Stars

Oh I so WANTED to like this book. That being said, I didn't, I couldn't. And yet I couldn't stop reading was like watching a car crash, I just couldn't look away.

The first third of the book, I spent half of my time being jarred out of the story by the strange lack of contractions. The book is written in first person POV and even the inner dialogue was strangely bereft of contractions. How many people sound so utterly formal all the time, not only when speaking, but also when thinking?

Speaking of POV, the entire book is from Ellery's POV, except for one strange, short chapter written from Connor's POV. We learn nothing about his motivations or his inner self and it seems to serve no purpose in the story arc.

Every time they have a fight it turns into the sacking of Carthage, including the razing of the city and the salting of the earth. No small disagreements, just global thermonuclear war followed by one or both of them leaving. And then with very little growth or development, magically they get back together and are having sex.

And speaking of the sex, this was a very un-erotic book of erotica. The following excerpts are from a single two-page section:


He gently inserted his finger in me and feeling the wetness before inserting another. I gasped at the pleasure and arched my back for him to go deeper. His tongue ran circles around my swollen area forcing me to release my pleasure to him


He sat up and moved fluently in and out of me. He reached his hands around and grabbed my breasts, squeezing them and pinching each nipple before moving his hand down and rubbing my aching spot.

1.0 out of 5 stars so heres the skinny. February 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book because it seemed interesting. I did not read the reviews beforehand, because I don't like having my opinion shadowed by others. That being said, after I did read the book, I realized I should have read the reviews. It is in dire need of an editor who pushed the author to write above an eighth (yeah I spelled it out) grade reading level. If I had to read one more sentence that started with the word "I", see a semicolon instead of a new sentence, or read another misspelled word, I was going to lose my mind.
We start off with a break up, a very unconvincing end to a four year relationship. Within the span of a page the best friend is urging Ellery, our lead character, to move on.
Enter hot yet damaged rich guy (yawn seen this before...a million times. FYI this is not the only plot point you can pin to a best seller right now). Another very unconvincing relationship starts to bloom, in which they are on a full name basis and although they are 23 and 30 they act like adolescences. It was deplorable how a 30 year old CEO acts, and even worse how Ellery acts. I get the connection as to why she acts like a selfish little twit, if I was in her situation I would too, but by the end of the book I wanted to tell her to grow up already.
The same plot points are recycled through the book. It ends how you expect it to.
End of Spoilers.
Like others have mentioned this book really really really really needed an editor, or at the very least a beta reader with enough gumption to tell the author to flex her muscles a little bit. The thought behind the book was a good one but it was hard to connect with any of the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great February 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really wanted to love this but it just didn't work for me.

It's a story we've all heard pretty much many times before - it does have a few unusual twists and turns which should help it stand out but sadly, there's also a whole lot wrong with this.

Firstly, the way the characters behave - really quite brattish and inexplicable behavior. Also the editing is shocking. At one point the characters delcare their love for one another. It's a pivotal moment, really important to the story and they say "I love you to." REALLY - that should be TOO. There's a whole heck of a lot of this going on - to and too, your and you're.

Just OK, not great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Jaw dropping awful and THEN SOME times 1000 February 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is the epitome of why people frown on self pubs sometimes. It's so bad. It's 100% crystal clear this book had no editing. It was written super fast and pastes together and slapped with a price tag. Shame!

Awful grammar. The writing out of numbers like crazy under 10? Who starts a sentence "2 minutes until we leave so hurry up" that's an example but still that's what this story is chock full of. That's basic grammar 101. You spell out numbers under 10. Wikipedia can tell you that and it's quick. It's "Two" minutes. All sentences that begin with numbers are spelled out regardless of the rules. That's elementary basic everyone knows this. Come on Ms. Lynn! There's absolutely no excuse for something that basic. There's at least 10 sentences that start with numbers under 8. Come on!

Too much naming. You're so silly Connor Black. You are amazing Ellery Lane. These two are obsessed with their full names. Enough Ms. Lynn. We get it. His name is Connor Black and her's is Ellery Lane. Unless someone's mad at another person no one uses a full name. Parents do when their kids are in trouble, spouses/SO's and such do. Not in regular conversation. So where shall we go today Ellery Lane? I don't know Connor Black.

Give me a break. The eyes can only roll so much. I was honestly afraid my would literally roll out of their sockets.

It's so bad. It needs SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much editing. I feel pins and needles cringing over how awful the grammar was. A few things can be overlooked if the story is good enough but all the Ellery Lane, Connor Black, OMG from Ellery's best friend. Literally OMG was all over the place isn't enough to overlook the dreadful grammar.

For $3.99 that's highway robbery and then some.
