I posted this on my personal page and of course had to share with you guys. I’m stalking my #kindle#paperwhite for this #ARC. @sylvainreynard is a favorite and this was long anticipated. I also really love the cover. #TheManintheBlackSuit will be out 12/19/17! Add to your #TBR: ❤️ Acacia Santos excels at her job as concierge at the prestigious Hotel Victoire in Paris. When her superior, Marcel, is attacked in a supposed random mugging, she is tasked with serving one of the hotel’s most mysterious and attractive guests.
Nicholas Cassirer checks into the hotel under an assumed name every three months. Usually, he stays in the penthouse suite with a beautiful female companion but on this occasion, he arrives alone and is displeased in having to deal with someone new. A match of wits ensues as he tests Acacia’s expertise with a series of almost impossible demands. Her intelligence and creativity rise to the challenge, earning his respect.
They strike a tenuous accord until Acacia discovers a famous stolen painting in his suite, she contacts a former boyfriend who works for the elite BRB, a unit of French law enforcement that deals with art thefts.
Nicholas is questioned by police and released when it is revealed the painting is a reproduction. Irked with her behavior, Acacia’s supervisor demotes her threatening dismissal and the cancellation of her work permit.
But Acacia has already attracted Nicholas’s attention. Remorseful that she may lose her job on his account, he offers her a choice – she can wait until her supervisor dismisses her, or she can leave the city of lights behind and become his personal assistant.
Acacia initially refuses his offer, but Nicholas is persistent. He reveals himself as a man who quietly acquires stolen art in order to restore it to its rightful owners. Faced with mounting familial debts and the possibility of dismissal and deportation, she agrees to work for him.
Nicholas opens up a whole new world of beauty and intrigue to Acacia as they travel the globe. Soon the line between employer and assistant is blurred, and the two lonely people embark on a passionate relationship.
Admittedly, Kindles do not make the most photogenic subjects, but I am obsessed with my new Paperwhite! Reading in the dark? Yes, please! (Plus, it’s the only tech device my kids don’t steal from me!)
I wasn’t super excited about this book club choice. Once I finally started reading, however, I couldn’t stop. Creative Russian retelling of beauty and the beast. #kindle#paperwhite#bookclubpick#meaganspooner#bookstagram#rubyelephantreads
Пост слёзок😭😭😭 Не прошло и года, как я писала о своём долгожителе #kindle . Нате вам- уронила стакан на экран и досвидатути🤦🏼♀️ Ремонт стоит половину новой книги, потому не резон. Но новые Киндлы без кнопочек😭😭😭 Я поюзала Димину, у него #paperwhite с подсветкой, но как же он меня выбесил💣 Любое случайное прикосновение к экрану и пролистано 10 страниц😡 Короче, это тот случай, когда я ретроград ретроградный😞 #электроннаякнига#amazonkindle#читалка#книжныйчервь
I've been growing #paperwhite bulbs every Christmas for a few years now & I love watching them grow! This one is a real champ so far 🌼🌨️⛄
And maybe I lost who we are, I jumped to the end, when that's not how we left it. And maybe the sound of your heart, gets stuck in my head. So I can't forget maybe the sound of your heart, gets stuck in my head. So I can't forget.
#Paperwhite ~ #OnlyUs#frlyfe
The new #Kindle#Oasis has such a piss poor rear design, the cover is also scratched front and back already from CARRYING IT INTO WORK.the seam on the back is collecting random bits of this and that already too. Come on #Amazon, tempted to sell this used since I clearly can't return it now, despite having had it for a whopping 14 hours, and going back to my #Paperwhite#fail
