Continental Breakfast (Continental Affair, #1) - Ella Dominguez This was a short story, and very rarely do short stories really get to me, but this one did. I'm not sure what it was, but right off the bat, I was invested in the story. Invested in how Bella felt about her boss, Xander. Invested in how betrayed she felt when she thought her boss was screwing other women. I felt betrayed with her, and I understood her berating of herself that of course he wasn't monogamous. They'd never talked about it even though she'd been faithful to him.

I could almost feel Xander's confusion with Bella's actions. I could almost feel his desperation to keep her. And I absolutely felt her desolation at letting him go.

I can't put my finger on why I felt all of these things, but it really was right off the bat. Great story and glad for the HEA.
