Jaded: Zane and Honor (Cliffside Bay Series Book 3) by Tess Thompson
Jaded: Zane and Honor - Tess Thompson

 

Jaded is an inspiration. Honor and Zane are not victims, but survivors. From ugliness blooms beauty. Tess Thompson shines a light on subjects that many choose to ignore. She tackles heartbreak with the strength and grace of a snowflake. The impact lives on, but never defines. There will be tears, but out of the sorrow is where the hope begins. Thus the healing power of love.

Dark Triumph (My Fair Assassin #2)
Dark Triumph - Robin LaFevers

It's been a number of years since I read Grave Mercy, the first book in the My Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin LaFevers.  I didn't take the time to write a review, but I rated it a 4 star book. I do remember enjoying the coming-of-age story regarding assassin nuns in a fictionalized Brittany where supernatural gods/saints interact with the real world.   

 

The second book in the trilogy Dark Triumph just didn't hold my interest. On the one hand, I couldn't put it down, on the other I found myself speed-reading/skimming just to find out what happened.  I know I missed a lot of details, but I have no interest in going back to pick up what I missed.

 

I don't know how much of my opinion is due to the specific book and how much of that is due to changes in reading taste (after a number of YA heavy years I seem to be reading more traditional SF). I do think I will eventually give the last book in the trilogy a try.

The Distiller's Darling - Jamaila Brinkley,Rebecca Norinne

 

Norinne and Brinkley are a powerhouse duo. From wine country to whiskey royalty, The Distiller's Darling packs an enduring blend of flavors. Wine and whiskey may not mix, but Iain and Naomi are the perfect combination of sultry and sweet. She brings out his naughty side and he awakens her emotional side. She's always been passionate about her art, her hopes and her dreams, but she has never believe in love. Amidst the secrets and well meaning, yet overbearing parents, these two manage to find something special. Can they make it stick? The Distiller's Darling keeps the subtlety to a minimum, while presenting a flavorful look at love.

The Sheikh's Tempting Assistant - Leslie North

 

She fell into an adventure and ended up touching the stars. Laura has a penchant for landing herself in awkward situations. After getting lost in the desert and stumbling upon a heavily guarded oasis of a camp, she finds herself face to face with the chance of a lifetime. Raheem shows her a world full of magnificent beauty and sensual delight, but treachery lies hidden in plain sight. Can the foreigner and the Sheikh survive the fall out, with their hearts intact? Leslie North has a gift for touching hearts. The Sheikh's Tempting Assistant is romantically delicious.
