I persuaded my best friend that I should be her first…
More Than Possess You, an all-new sexy novella in the A More Than Words series from New York Times bestselling author Shayla Black and 1,001 Dark Nights is available now!
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shayla Black returns with a new story in her More Than Words series.
I’m Hayes Elliott. Since second grade, I’ve had one best friend, Echo Hope. When she graduates from college, of course I have to give her something amazing. Since I’ll be on a business trip to Maui, I’m bringing her along for a week of fun and sun. But once she sheds her long skirts, serious buns, and combat boots for bikinis, I can’t deny how stunning she is…and I can’t stop wanting her. Worse, she’s determined to lose her V-card—and has asked one of our man-whoring buddies to pluck it.
I’ve got to step in.
It’s underhanded, but I offer to do the job properly. Since I’m no one’s Prince Charming, I have no intention of following through. Suddenly, the kisses start and the clothes come off…and I can’t remember why I’m not supposed to make her mine in every way. Or why I shouldn’t be in love with her. But if I want Echo for more than a vacation fling, I’ll have to fight. And she’s about to find out how determined I am to upgrade my best friend to wife.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Hayes has been best friends with Echo since they were children so to celebrate her graduation from college, he is taking her along on a business trip to Hawaii with their other friend Xavian. What he didn’t realize is that Echo and Xavian have been making plans about her first time and once he finds out he is determined to put a stop to it.
Echo isn’t certain why Hayes is determined to thwart her plans as she knows what she wants and it is her decision to make and it’s not like he is willing to do the deed, or is he?
Hayes was so determined to fight his feelings for Echo but once he sees her as more than his friend the chemistry between them is intense. It was also great to catch up with other characters we know and love and for Xavian to get what he needed and wanted most from the trip.
