This was the third book in a row that I read that dealt with getting tattoos. First was HARD TO HOLD ON TO, then was RETRACE, and then this one. All three, the main characters got tattoos. 

....just an interesting tidbit I realized when reading this book

My Rating: 

Tatiana Stone has worked hard to establish herself as one of Sector Four's most skilled crafters. All she wants is peace--but the sins of her father haunt her. He ruled the sector as a petty tyrant before the O'Kane takeover, and plenty of people harbor bitter memories of his cruelty. Especially now that Tatiana's beloved baby sister has fallen in with a man who wants to start a revolution.

Zan failed his boss once, and it won't happen again. So when Dallas O'Kane asks him to defuse the rebellion brewing in the sector, he'll do whatever it takes to get the job done--including seduce Tatiana. It's the perfect opportunity to get closer to the pretty crafter and complete his mission. But what he discovers is a fiery, passionate woman--and an affair that could destroy them both.

For the most part, one can read this book and be ok reading in the middle of the series... but the first part in which I realized, well, maybe starting from the beginning would be good, was about 6% through:
'[Tatiana] gripped the bag more tightly and forced her voice to remain curious, casual, as if the answer didn't matter much. "Is Zan doing better? I'm running out of jasmine oil, and he's never told me how he gets hold of it."
'Jasper's severe expression softened a bit. "I'll let him know."
 'Nothing about his condition or his recovery, because she'd played her cards too cautiously. If she had expressed concern for the man instead of what he could do for her, maybe Jasper would have given her some news and soothed this nagging distress she couldn't shake.'
Now, you read about his recovery a few pages beforehand, but right here, when you see Tatiana's concern, you just need to know what actually happened. 

However, I love that they're both seemingly oblivious to the other's attraction. Obviously, from above, Tatiana is curious about Zan. 

But the feeling is mutual.
'Dallas tapped his finger on the bar. "Seems like Tatiana could shut it down. You've always kept a pretty close eye on her. You got any pull there?"
'She smiled when he came through her. Laughed at even his worst jokes. Listened to his stories, and watched him hungrily when she thought he wasn't paying attention.
'But he was always paying attention.
'"No." His answer came too forcefully, and he shook his head with a sigh...' 
For a quick novella, it was really cute. I feel that once I read the rest of the series, this novella will make more sense and be bumped to a 4.5 if not a 5 -- the problem simply being I was confused at parts.

Anyway... Just 'purchased' book 1 (it's currently free on Amazon!) -- excited to start from the beginning and learn the ins and outs of the Sector :)
