Continental Breakfast and Continental Beginnings by Ella Dominguez

I am completely lost for words about what to say about these fabulous, steamy and sexy novellas. This series starts out with Continental Breakfast (which will be free on Amazon on July 16 otherwise it is at the amazing price of 99 cents), where Bella Darcy who works as the personal assistant to Mr. Xander Pettifor.  And she assist him with all of his needs.   Here is the blurb for Continental Breakfast (the author always does a better job of telling you what the book is about instead of  

Bella Darcy is personal assistant, muse and plaything to wealthy businessman Mr. Pettifor. Their 9-5 relationship is unconventional, but mutually satisfying.
Mr. Pettifor is alpha male personified - demanding, stern, insatiable, emotionally closed-off and seemingly indifferent to anything that doesn't involve six zeros behind it.
Bella had never wanted more until the day she heard passionate cries that didn't belong to her,
coming from his office.
Deeply hurt and realizing that she cannot be with a man who can so blatantly be with another woman while she is mere feet away, Bella turns in her letter of resignation, throwing Mr. Pettifor into a tailspin. Everything he's worked so hard for now seems insignificant and the woman whom he trained to be everything he wanted, has now decided to move on, leaving him reeling.
Continental Breakfast is told from Bella's POV.  You will (at least I did) experience what she feels on her emotional journey.  I really do hope you check out Continental Breakfast.  

In the follow up novella, Continental Beginnings (which is told from Xander's POV) you will see how Bella started out working for Mr. Pettofir and why he ask how he ask.  This novella starts out will Bella's unconvential interview up to her resignation.  I love it when an author writes a book from the other characters POV.  You will understand both sides of the story and understand the actions of all the major players.  This book did not disappoint.  
Here is the blurb for Continental Beginnings,
From the first day Mr. Pettifor laid eyes on Bella Darcy, he knew he couldn't deny himself the indulgence of being with her. Against his better judgement, he hired her, knowing full well he would pay the price with her constant presence. Little did the alpha male know that before him stood a woman who yearned for his touch, his control and his training.
By day, Mr. Pettifor was a hard working businessman and a force to be reckoned with. At night, he was a talented and skilled instructor at a domestic disclipline training center and an austere alpha male whom women bowed at his feet.
At a crossroads in her life, Bella had started a new career path, hoping to one day go to medical school. When she applied as the personal assistant to the inscrutable Mr. Pettifor, she never thought it would lead to anything more than an interview.
This is the story of Mr. Pettifor, a man who took for granted the love and adoration given to him until it was taken away, and how he fell in love with the woman he trained to be everything he ever wanted. This is the tale of the shy and fearful Ms. Darcy and how she flourished under his command, never knowing of his secret life, never asking questions, and yet, somehow finding her true courageous self in the process.
This is the story of how their relationship began.
Continental Beginnings will be released on July 16th (which is Tuesday!!!!).  This book must be on your to be read list.  It is just as steamy and juicy as Continental Breakfast and all of the other books written Ella Dominguez.  (If you haven't, you must checked out her The Art of D/S trilogy.  It is another MUST READ)
