First Thought when Finished: I really loved Tess and Xavier in Night’s Honor by Thea Harrison. They are fantastic characters and it was really refreshing to see a couple be open with each other without it being forced. My only “complaint” (not a big one) is the pacing in this story. It took forever for anything to happen but after it did I was cheering like a crazy gal.
NOTE: I felt like this was more of a prep book for the next one. I would have liked more focus on Tess and Xavier.

Sophie did a great job with both Tess and Xavier! I wasn’t sure how I was going to accept Xavier being done by a women but she did well. I also like her pacing and emotion. I would recommend this one on audio.
