Book 1 Verses Part 1

I've been curious about this for a long time. I especially hate reading a book with a cliffhanger, and will usually avoid them. If the author warns you there is a cliffhanger then I might give it a try, depends on the author. Too many times though I can only go by what's on the cover. I have to admit that when the cover says book 1 that I expect some kind of ending, even if there are future books to follow. However, when the cover says part 1 I expect a cliffhanger.

I read a novella the other night and the damn thing just ended. No warning or anything. Book 1 was on the cover of this 27 page story. So I did a little investigation to discover that there were 4 other books to this story, all with around 30 pages each. Now, the author was only asking 0.99 for each story, but I can't help feel it's a crafty way to get the reader to pay more.

Personally I would rather the author wait, write the whole story, and then ask one price for it. But my question is, what do you consider the difference is between book 1 and part 1?

Dirty Teaser for Obsession

Gazing into each other’s eyes now, Sammy slowly pulled her head back until the curl slipped from his fingers. “We’re not kids anymore. You can stop playing with me.” It was the only thing she could think of to say.

“No, we’re two divorced, consenting adults who are free to fuck each other’s brains out for the first time in twenty years.”

Oh, God! Her panties became soaked with the visual his words conjured up. Unable to speak, she could only shake her head. The next step she took away from him brought her up against the fridge. She caught her breath as he slowly, and with a lazy smile, closed in on her. God, if he backed up that predatory gleam in his eyes she would be lost this time.

“And I’m about to show you how this man plays.”

As soon as his mouth covered hers, Sammy’s willpower to ignore his sexual pull disappeared, replaced with an all-consuming desire to yield to him. Everything. His mouth was firm, strong, demanding, and she welcomed his tongue against hers with a low, satisfied moan. He responded with a groan, and then lost control and crushed her against the fridge as if she could absorb him.
