I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Let's just say this book was not my cup of tea. I hate reading books and finding that I do not like certain characters nor do I like the plot.. yada. yada because then I'm not going to have the best review. And I don't like bashing authors' work because this is their lives, but I'm one critic out of hundreds, so please don't choose to read or to not read based on this review alone.

Book One of The Cover Series

A love story, but with many twists and turns.

Emily, is a young, been hurt before and afraid to trust again woman, who meets Julien, a handsome man, with "player" like qualities which turn Emily off as much as he turns her on.

When these to come together, the only word to describe it is HOT.

Both have pasts that threaten their future. Julien, a lie he has lived for so long. Emily, heartbreak and pain all stemming from lies. Emily struggles to move past her past hurts

There is an easy, comfortable relationship established with the lead characters of Discovered from the moment that the story begins to unwind. Emily's feisty yet seductive appeal is whimsically magnetic, Julien is not only mesmerizing, but he proves to be all that one would expect from a debonair power player and the confident, calculated Charlette holds her own.

Discovered is certainly targeted to the 18 and over crowd and with just cause. The relentlessly in-depth encounters so well depicted wi

I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this novella and I loved every second of it!

Kim Black has a fabulous way of bringing the reader into the world of her characters. Each one's motives and actions were clearly defined yet nothing was easily figured out. The twists and turns of each relationship were surprising, morally complex and kept me hooked.

I found myself rooting for the "villianess" as well as the female lead which made me feel a bit conflicted. I'm hoping all of that will be worked out

ARC received by the author in exchange for an honest review.

If you are looking for a quick, steamy read with a strong-willed heroine and a gorgeous sexy-as-sin hero, I definitely recommend that you read this book.

Meet Emily: she has been burnt by her past boyfriend, Adam, and even though it has been a year since she broke it off with him, she is still not ready or willing to jump into a new relationship. However, her strong feelings about this subject become muddled when she meets Julien Belmont

Received an Advanced Reader Copy for honest review.

As a man, I could honestly say that reading romance novels is not a common occurrence for me but reading this novella has been a very pleasant experience. One thing I could say, it's definitely a HOT story; filled with steamy sex scenes that could make anyone, man or woman blush.

Kim Black pulls you into the story from the very beginning and doesn't release you even after the book has ended, instead you are left wanting to read more.The character

I'm a fan of a book blog on Facebook and by the grace of Gods they suggest books that I love and some not so much. This book I not only loved...but I was entranced by it. I literally bought read and before I knew it I was at 87% and so was not ready for it to end. Queue anxiety....

While the editing I would have to rate 3 stars because there were some extra words that needed to be deleted and the occasional completely wrong word, as long as you're reading and following along you're brain fixes sa

One night out with her friends Emily meets Julien, French Billionaire, alpha male, gorgeous, and he will do just about anything to get Emily.

Yea..this book wasn't my cup of tea once I found out something about Julien I didn't enjoy reading the book so my notes and highlights weren't very many. I really do dislike giving 3 star reviews but I know that it wasn't my tea and perhaps what I didn't enjoy others would. Julien I thought he was arrogant, "yes, I drive a Porsche, yes, this is my car, yes I would like to drive you home in it." I also noticed after I downloaded the books that the cover says "Book One of The Cover Series" which s ...more

4.5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!

Wow! I've been in an erotica funk. I was really hesitant to start this because I've had little luck with this genre lately. I waited until the last possible minute to read this before my review was due. I could kick myself now because holy heck, was this hot. Kim Black sucked me right into Emily and Julien's world. The twists and turns kept me on my toes and had me glued to my kindle. I need more. I feel like Veruca Salt right now! I want it now!

I enjoyed the book that I didn't realize I was getting closer to the end, but maybe its because I could figure out the tweaks in the story. I am sure it maybe because I have read many similar stories. It still an enjoyable book and I am looking forward to the next chapter. ...more

I read this book at the authors suggestion. I was given a copy for my honest review so here goes.

This was a novella and I have a love hate relationship with novellas. I love them but because they are short reads I'm left with so many questions.. That wasn't the case here though. I love a great book and this book had so much passion in it.
Not just the love kind but also the kind where you want to slap the crap out of some of the characters because their decisions made you feel so angry that you

This was a interesting and quick read. Interesting in many aspects. First Emily didn't really rub well on me. She was hypocritical at times and never wanted to listen to people. hear them out until it was too late. Julien was granted holding back secrets but was trying to be honest with Emily she just didn't make that easy. His marriage arrangement was a little old school and freaky but I think what happened after the gala with him and his wife was necessary for him to realize what he truly want ...more

'Discovered' is defiantly a 5 star read. It is full of REALLY steamy love making scenes, chapters of ravishing sex, and does not lack on detail. There is a slight modern 'Sex In The City' vibe to it that we loved, and while the erotic scenes do not compromise the storyline the author gives us, the readers, two sides to one very well written story through main characters Emily Roberts and French billionaire Julian Belmont.

Like most women would, Emily had sworn herself away from men after finding

Holy hell for a novella there is a whole lot things going on. I guess I could best describe Discovered as a soap opera. There is a love triangle, or is it a square or is it a polygon? Yes you read that right. There is Julien, Emily, Charlette, Adam and Diana. I am not even going to try to explain it all in this review. There is insta love, insta lust, lies, secrets, sex, jealousy, cheating and more sex. See just like a soap opera.

Emily Roberts wants nothing to do with men because of something that happened with her ex. Julien Belmont doesn't want a relationship. One night they meet in a bar and things take off from there.

Wow, what a wonder beginning to a promising writing career! This novella is Ms. Black's debut, no doubt she has many more stories to tell. Her writing is tight, her characters well developed and the sex scenes are sizzling. I do not write spoiler reviews, but be warned the ending is heart stopping.

Emily has given up on love. After finding out her ex was cheating, she has given up on men. She survived the past year with the help of her best friend. A chance meeting with a devilishly handsome Fre

Emily Roberts is on a night out with her friends when she meets the handsome, suave Julien Belmont, initially she turns Julien down flat, she is totally off men after her best friend told her she had found her former fiancé in a compromising position with a co-worker.

Julien is not used to being told no, he is intrigued by Emily, it is evident from the book that both characters finds each other irresistible, Julien determined to make Emily his, Emily equally determined to not be, to start with. E

Emily has reach the end of her tether when it comes to men and relationships, her cheating ex put paid to all that but a woman has needs after all, so separating physical and emotional relationships is the way forward or so she thinks because what she hopes may not be what she gets.
Because her internal bad influence is leading her astray and on a girl’s night out she meets Julien.

Kim Black really knows how to keep you entertained and intrigued in her writing. Discovered is one of those books that is really hard to put down because you have to know what happens next. And when you find out what happens next you are totally floored because it’s now what you expected.

Emily meets Julien at the beginning of the book at a night club. He becomes fascinated with her, but Emily wants none of it because of the type of person she thinks Julien is, a playboy. What ensues next it pass

Review by Whitney at The Club

Emily had her heart shattered by her ex when she found out he was cheating on her. A year later she vows to never let a good looking player into her heart again. That is until she meets Julienne. Even though she knows he's all wrong for her and would hurt her the same way she can't help but fee a pull to him.
Julien is a one night stand sort of man not looking to settle. But when he sees Emily his heart has other plans for him. T

Holy Hell Kim Black! You have made the list of authors trying to kill me with Discovered! Emily Roberts is finished with me after her ex Adam cheated on her with two of her co-workers. She's been celibate for over a year, but that instantly changes when she meets french billionaire, Julian Belmont. She felt an instant connection to him, and all of her resolve goes out the window. The problem is that she's once again caught up in lies with a man. Will his past destroy a future with Emily?
