REVIEW: EVERY PART OF ME NOVELLA SERIES BY MEGAN HART

She likes to watch. He likes to keep hidden. Total opposites on a collision course to a relationship neither can deny.

Simone Cooper’s been watching Elliott Anderson through her office window for months. He likes to bring women back to his office for late-night trysts, and Simone enjoys her voyeurism until one night, Elliott appears to go too far with his date. The other woman might not be into spanking, but Simone is, and when she meets Elliott in the elevator later that night, she makes sure he’s intrigued enough by her to ask her to go with him to the party he no longer has a date for.

Thrown together by circumstances he’d never have imagined, Elliott isn’t sure what to think about Simone. She’s nothing like the women he normally dates, but something about her draws him in until he can’t stop himself from wanting her…until their goodnight kiss becomes something harder. Harsher. Simone responds to his rough hands as no woman ever has, and Elliott’s not ready to pursue what he’s always told himself is wrong.

Our Series Review! 


I know what you're thinking. You're thinking you can't do a novella series..you don't like the waiting...they are just getting going and POOF! it's over for that installment...the characters aren't as developed...and so on and so on. I've so thought that before, but keep reading! 

I think Megan Hart just may be the writer to convince you that a novella series will work for you. First of all, by the time you read this review all of the series will be released. They are ALL out! And so fracking good. Second of all, the series is completely filling. The characters are not short changed, neither is the plot or the steam. Of course, when a writer is budgeting his or her words, the details may be fewer and the pace, faster..but I didn't mind it one bit. I found this series to be paced nicely and the writing very clean--not bogged down on anything unnecessary. I had deeply strong feelings for Simone and while my feelings for Elliott tended to be toward the pissed off side of things, he was a very multi-dimensional character as well. My constant thoughts of Simone were that she is fierce, and strong...yet submissive. That was quite a feat for me to see pulled off so I was very excited to see what sort of journey Simone would take through each novella I read.

The story is interesting. There's the instant intrigue of Simone and her voyeurism. There's the simple and not so simple Elliot. There's the complication of their sex life and what is deemed right/good/acceptable. There are hurt feelings and confused feelings and honest feelings. I loved how in so few words, Megan Hart gives us a very raw story of the pleasure and pain of engaging in their relationship. Elliot is so infuriating and Simone is so strong and vulnerable and good. I loved Simone...more women could stand to be as honest as she was in this series; and, I love how she refuses to apologize for who she is and what she likes. And, Elliot finds a way to be less of an asshole by the end too...as he learns how to accept his truth and tell it to Simone (and more importantly, to himself). OMG Elliott...he killed me...but really, just like Simone he was brutally honest too. He was so straight laced and rigid in some things...but still was an incredibly hot lover in others. He had so much hate and anger for things that had happened in his life, that he went through a great part of it alone. I didn't want him to be alone but on the other side I needed him to hardcore get his head out of his butt, pronto! 

Anyway, I could ramble on for a while about why I enjoyed this series..instead, you should buy it and let us know what you think. Please do. We can ramble on about this forever, and really want to! 

Shelley: 4 1/2 Stars
