So when the opportunity for a two-million-dollar diamond heist falls in my lap, I can hardly say no. I just need to deal with a few complications…like my adorably clueless husband, the federal agent.
Mouse, meet cat…
My wife thinks I don't know about her secret life as a thief. She thinks I spend my days at the bureau searching for tax evaders. Or maybe she doesn't. Maybe she knows I'm on to her, which makes our games so much more fun. And so much more intense…
Hang on to your pearls: This deliciously sexy romantic comedy features a cat burglar who keeps her friends close and her husband—and arch nemesis—closer.
"A sexy, fun, cat-and-mouse chase that hooked me from page one!"—JENNIFER PROBST, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author of The Marriage Bargain
Penelope Blue begins this lighthearted romantic crime drama tucked into an air duct, ready for her part in a jewel heist. It's foiled in the same way many of her schemes have been: by the presence of her husband, Grant Emerson, who not-so-coincidentally is the FBI agent tracking her team. The story jumps back and forth between the present day and the history of their relationship, which started as mutual recon and grew into something neither of them expected. The tale is lighthearted and wry, with the implied danger not actually adding much sense of threat. The intrigue and strong cast of secondary characters make for a fast read, and readers will be pleased with how the story plays out. The reader is left with a solid romance and a tease of mischief to come, though the loving relationship and the promise of further criminal activity are hard to reconcile.
Before reading this book, I️ read some of the goodreads review and they were positive. I️ was incredibly disappointed tho. The heroine was too vapid and the entire book was too superficial for me...lack of real depth. Since it was about a thief and FBI agent, I️ thought it was going to be mystery/romance and put me at the edge of my seat, but no, that wasn’t the case here. I️ was so bored, I️ was tempted to skip but I️ hate doing that, so I didn’t. I️ couldn’t wait for the book to be over so the torture can end. The only reason I️ even finished this book is because I️ like to finish whatever I️ start. Definitely glad this was free or I️ would be mad if I️ bought it
