SUMMARY
The Assassins Trilogy, 2
Can an assassin ever really walk away from the job?

Sabrina Cain thought she'd done just that and she's not looking for happily-ever-after just contentment. Then she meets the beautiful curvy Veda.

Veda can't believe a woman as gorgeous and confident as Sabrina would ever look twice at her let alone go out with her. Despite her doubts, Veda makes a move on Sabrina anyway, looking for a delicious one night-stand.

But both women get more than they bargained for when a single night sets a fire in them neither can deny. However, fighting her attraction to Veda isn't Sabrina's only problem. Her past has come back to haunt her, striking out at Veda.

Can Sabrina save Veda and walk out of the fire once more? Or will her past mistakes cost them both their lives?
Be Warned: f/f sex, spanking, sex toys, bondage

Looking for a killer lesbian erotica? Try a book from Ms. Snow. I picked this book up because I wanted to read more f/f romance. If it included erotica and a bit of suspense, all the better. The fact that it included shifters, witches and kinky sex? Now that is a winning combination. This book is the second one in the trilogy. Full disclosure, I read this as a standalone and it was fine. I will most likely go back and read the first book and I want to read the follow up.

This story started out slow at first. I'm a little turned off by Sabrina's money-grubbing druggie stepsister. Trying to figure out Sabrina's angle and what she does takes a little more time. Her interaction with Veda almost slipped right on by. I'm not sure if I was not paying close enough attention since I did stop start this book several times before I finished it. But somehow I missed the paranormal shifter aspect to this book. It comes through much stronger near the last third of the book.

Let's start with what I liked about this book. I liked the f/f erotica. The bit of kinky sex made it hotter. It is rare I can find good lesbian erotica. I say this because the genre tends to have major stereotypes played out. In this one, Ms. Snow does a lovely job of creating likeable characters. I genuinely liked both Sabrina and Veda. I wish they were developed a bit more, but for a story of this length, it worked. I also enjoyed the plot. I liked how Sabrina's past tried to ruin her future and how Sabrina's line of work stopped it. Sabrina is hella sexy dangerous. It is a bit light in the story development of her mercenary job, but as I understand it, she freelances occasionally as she is leaving the killing business behind.

Veda is an interesting character whose life is a bit too controlled by Daddy Dearest. This thread of the story was a bit creepy at times. Still, it laid a foundation for a conflict that may or may not be resolved. What threw me was the jarring insert of Veda's magical powers. It was mentioned at the very beginning of the book and then it poof disappeared until near the end. This is what I have found with Ms. Snow's stories. Or at least the two I've read. The pieces are all there, just not exactly fitting together smoothly. I can say that it is better than the first book of hers I read. I can see her writing style growth and maturity in this one. I like the upward path she's on. This erotica is recommended to ff readers who like a little bit of everything in their stories.
