#BookReview Completely Yours by Isabelle Lauren #Steamy #FFM @RomanticIsa

BOOK REVIEW

For transparency, I should state that although this book is technically an F/F/M Black Erotica (featuring Black characters as leads), the author is not a POC.

Completely Yours is about Caroline, Alisha and Daniel who work togther and find themselves navigating a complicated love triangle during a week in New York while they prepare for an upcoming store opening.

Caroline is the successful boss lady who doesn’t want a commitment or long-term relationship. She is taken aback by her attraction to her new project manager, Alisha. Alisha is competent and brilliant and attracted to her two bosses, Caroline and Daniel. Daniel, on his part, has been a loyal and steadfast friend and business partner to Caroline for many years. He is also in love with Caroline, a love which is unrequited. He want s lifetime of commitment not a quick tumble in the sack.

Everyone stays within the professional lines until Daniel reveals that he is leaving the company and suddenly a normal business trip becomes a kind of Mexican standoff of sexual tension. How does this get resolved? Well, you’re going to have to read this book to find out. What I will tell you is that there’s a whole load of steaminess on the route to a happy conclusion.

Do I think the author pulled off the ‘Black characters’ perfectly? Not by a long shot. For example, ‘frizzy Afro’ as a hair style? A Black woman would only refer to her hair like that if she is having a bad hair day, in my opinion. Also, the conversation between Caroline and Daniel about the Bronx sounded condescending and pulled me out of the story, amongst others.

However, if you put aside its flaws, this is still a good steamy read about the intricate and sometimes tangled human relationships. There were moments that really spoke to me, especially Daniel’s heartache at the unrequited love he had for Caroline who had friend-zoned him. But as they say, all is well that ends well. Seeing their relationship progress into a functioning polyamory was beautiful. Worth checking out.

Caroline is on top of her game. Black Goddess, her company, is opening a store in New York, and a week away from the office is just what Caroline needs. In Toronto, she has to play the role of the prim, successful business woman, romantically linked with her business partner Daniel. But in New York she can be sexually free. It doesn’t hurt that this time, her attractive project manager Alisha is coming with them.

Alisha is attracted to both her bosses, but she is determined not to jeopardise her career.  This determination is shaken when Caroline proposes a no-strings attached sexual relationship for the duration of the business trip. Unable to deny her feelings Alisha embarks upon a scorching sexual journey with Caroline.

Daniel is in love with Caroline. Knowing that their romantic relationship is nothing more than a facade with no chance of ever becoming a reality, Daniel decides to quit his job as Caroline’s business partner in an effort to protect his heart. All he has to do is survive the week in New York. But can he continue to deny his feelings, especially when Caroline needs him?

When the media makes details of Caroline’s sexual excesses public, Caroline, Alisha and Daniel must work together to save the future of Black Goddess—and their hearts.
