It was supposed to be one quick job, but it ended in my captivity to a man as dangerous to my safety as he is to my heart.
Lachlan Niche had way too much money and in my opinion not enough brains to be worthy of holding onto it. And I was happy to help him out with that problem.
The job was simple. He hired me to steal a priceless piece of art that wasn’t for sale.
But I wasn’t about to steal for this guy—certainly not a painting created by the man who inspired me to become an artist.
I decided I’d just forge it. He’d get the fake, and I’d get a cool 12 million for the imaginary heist.
What could possibly go wrong?
The game was on and it was a long con. The twist was not unexpected but who was unexpected. If you are looking for the lovie dovie everyone falls in love and gets all sweet this is not that. This is desire, a need to posses and own and a love hate relationship. Overall a good read.
Still can’t breathe
I am a huge fan of Kitty Thomas’s dark and twisty plots. I can always count on her to deliver a story without cliche characters. This one is my favorite of her works so far.
This book will take hold of you and pull you in. I couldn’t put it down, I started it one evening after work and stayed up until 4am to finish it. Kitty has such a unique way of writing stories that don’t leave you once they are over, they stay with you and on your mind for days or weeks. For 3 weeks after reading this book, I found myself going back and rereading, not that, that is uncommon for Kitty Thomas books and me but every time I have read over it, I discovered something I missed or interpreted the complex word of Quill and Saskia differently. This book is dark, it is intense, it is an emotional roller coaster filled with every emotion there is and it is pure art.
