Forever Black (Forever Black 1) - Sandi Lynn

The Book
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?

My Opinion 1.5 STARS
1.5 stars for the idea behind this story only. Certainly not the writing itself. It's upsetting, as this has the potential to be a good book.

This book needs a serious amount of decent editing. The use of language made it had to read and I constantly had to backtrack for it to make sense.

Besides who lightly smiles or just knows what someone is thinking. 

Both characters are wholly immature. They spend they entire book, yelling at each other, smiling at each other, then running out. 

Ellery herself is the most self absorbed, self entered brat I have every read, and how many people can one author have killed off in someone's already miserable life.

On the whole this book is very disappointing. Most of the time I was grappling with myself NOT to throw my kindle away with frustration.
