Jaded: Zane and Honor
#3, Cliffside Bay Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Try as they might, some people can never be "just friends", as you'll discover in this standalone, swoon-worthy, small-town romance from USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson.
Nothing has ever come easy for Zane Shaw, which is exactly why he keeps his guard up at all times. Though he wasn't raised to cower in the corner and hide from adversity, he's had more than his fair share of troubles and he's done being vulnerable to pain.
Honor Sullivan's living her life much the same way her old friend Zane is, though for very different reasons. It's not that she's tired of getting hurt so much as she's got too much to lose. Plus, she's terrified that all she can do is hurt anyone else.
Is it possible that after surviving so much disappointment and pain, Zane's broken heart is perfect for Honor's broken soul? When these two finally decide to unpack their baggage together, they just might recognize their imperfectly perfect forever underneath the protective shell that the other wears.
USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson invites you into the world of Cliffside Bay to meet a group of five best friends, the women they love, and the stories that bring each couple together. Each book in the Cliffside Bay Series is intended to be read and enjoyed as a sweet standalone, but for maximum enjoyment read this binge-worthy series in order.
Great story, get out your hankies
I love Tess Thompson’s books & this one is no exception. Zane & Honor have both known too much sorrow in their lives & you will be cheering for them to find their own happily ever after. This is the 3rd in a series of 5 friends, so characters show up from the previous books, but each one is a stand-alone. Although, if you haven’t read the first two, after you fall in love with Zane & Honor you will want to read Jackson & Maggie and Brody & Kara’s stories too!!! Buy the book now -you won’t regret it!
Come make new friends
Every so often an author manages to pull you in and make you feel like you are living the story along with the characters. Tess has managed to do that with the Cliffside Bay series. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and applauded the endurance and determination of each person to get through their struggles. I have a strong urge to move to Cliffside Bay and worm my way in to this group of friends that I would be proud to call my tribe! Can’t wait for the next book in this series!
