I didn’t mean to hurt anyone, especially him…
I was living the dream. I had a great career as a romance author, a successful boyfriend, and am the daughter to a New York power couple. With my standing, my family groomed me to be perfect. Despite having it all, something was still missing.
In an attempt to break away from my privileged, suffocating life, I was in pursuit of finding my own path to happiness. After my literary agent gave me a risky writing assignment, I set out to write a best-seller that took me completely out of my comfort zone and into the arms of another man. He was only supposed to be a research toy, falling in love wasn’t a part of the plan. As I become tangled into a huge web of lies, I quickly find out that I have a life changing decision to make. Do I choose to continue living a life of comfort, stability, and misery or do I take a chance on the unknown to preserve my happiness?
Victoria Bright is from a small town in North Carolina and currently resides in Greenville, South Carolina. She has been writing since she was in the eighth grade, starting with small short stories. As her classmates began showing interest in her work, she began to write longer stories, filling multiple spiral notebooks with her thoughts. During her freshman year in high school, her English teacher encouraged her to enter a writing contest in which she won local, region and state levels. She has entered many writing contests since and have won a few. Figuring out she had a passion to share stories with anyone who would listen, she set out to write her first book Love Unbroken.
Victoria is very versatile in the genre of books she likes to read. Her bookchoice mostly varies on her mood, but she is particularly interested in crime stories, romance, teen fiction, sci-fi, and is now venturing a little in paranormal fiction. As for her own writing, she doesn't really put it into a category or genre. She just writes whatever is on her mind and lets it create itself!

One look at the cover, and yes, I'm taken away, just like how Arianna was taken away by her "subject" or "specimen" as I like to call him.
To be stuck in a loveless marriage, or to love without freedom.
That is a question that always had me pondering. The Daring Assignment had beautifully woven a story that perfectly fits into the question, and I was more than excited to see how the story unfolds! Set in Arianna's POV, it was a journey of self discovery as she try to build her confidence and expand beyond her comfort zone - I mean, I can't write an erotic romance without using bananas to describe a man's genitals! -
Julius is an a**, a few chapters into the book and I would just like to kick the guy in the never-mind-where. I absolutely despise a guy who would ridicule a woman's looks just because she wasn't perfect, but it completely baffles me to learn that despite all that, Ariana still loves him, of course until Zane appears.
I love the book from the very beginning, besides its amazing supporting characters ( I would totally love a friend like Gia!), Arianna is a strong character who is able to find it within herself to break free and find happiness, and nothing is more important than finding the that one thing in life. Happiness fuels life! :)
It was not a happy ending, but a perfect one indeed! Can't wait to read the sequel!
If you are looking for a good book to curl up with, you have just found the right one!
