Just One Night, Part 3: Binding Agreement

Binding Agreement - Kyra Davis Initial impressions:2.5-3 stars, the self-absorbed main character and her controlling boyfriend just didn't sit well with me. The Review:Out of the frying pan, and into the fire…Binding Agreement is the third and last installment of Kyra Davis’ Just One Night series. The book was a short and quick read for me. I’m finding that my personal preference would have been to have read this series as one book rather than waiting for each short novella to be published. Had it been one book, I would have found the series to be more cohesive.Binding Agreement continues right where the second book leaves off. Kasie now has to deal with the repercussions of her relationship with Robert Dade:“I thought that when I broke up with my controlling fiancé, Dave, I would become the master of my own life. But now it’s just another version of the same thing. Dave controlled me with guilt and shame, even fear. Robert controls me with a kiss.”She is promoted to a supervisory position after her supervisor was dismissed for sexual harassment. Her work relationships suffer because of Robert’s influence and meddling. Everyone in her office knows that she is sleeping with Robert.Kasie irritated me. I grew tired of her voice. She got everything she wanted yet she still came across as whiny and self-absorbed. Of course it is hard for people to take you seriously if you sleep your way up to the top. I was also surprised by how similar Dave(ex-fiancé) and Robert were. Both sought to control Kasie. Where Dave was downright mean, Robert had more finesse and controlled aspects of Kasie’s personal and business life.One of the more interesting characters in this series had to be Asha. Asha was career oriented to the point of ruthlessness. She challenged Kasie every step of the way. The one thing I liked about Asha was that she never felt any guilt or remorse for her actions whereas Kasie would agonize about everything. I’d love to see a book about Asha in the future.Robert’s character put me off, which kind of surprised me. What girl doesn’t want a knight in shining armor to come and rescue her from her dull existence? What is with all of these stunningly gorgeous and sexy billionaires in all of these romance novels? It’s as if the earth revolves around them and not the sun. I’m not so sure that I would enjoy a relationship with a man that tried to control me and everything in my life the way that Robert did. Red lights and sirens would be going off in my brain.I must say that there were some notable steamy scenes in this book. An exclusive evening at one of Robert’s clubs ends up rather hot. If you are a fan of office sex, well, there’s some of that, too.As a serialized novel, Binding Agreement (Just One Night Part 3) was a quick read. I think I was able to read it in an evening in one sitting. I think that I may have enjoyed it more had it been a full length book. In any case, I did enjoy this author’s writing and I am hoping to read more of her work in the future.Thank you to Edelweiss and Pocket Books for a review copy of this book.
