Penelope Blue is married to Federal Agent Grant Emerson. She is a mouthy, sassy and fascinating badass heroine, a highly skilled jewel thief. She “works” with a group of childhood friends and they are the best in their “field”. In theory, her husband is her enemy, her nemesis, who should be willing to catch her if he can. But they have been married for one year and he has never done a thing to hurt her. Their emotional connection is intense. Grant is smoking hot, self-assured, shrewd and incredibly perceptive. He is very good at hiding his emotions, though, and Penelope still questions his motivation. After all, he could be the definition of deep undercover!
I loved this story! It started with a bang and kept up with the twists and turns, leaving me guessing at every turn and finally building up to a suspenseful climax. The plot is intricate and the chemistry between the main characters is intense. Tamara Morgan has woven an entertaining story in a way that is fun and unique. The alternating pattern of past and present storytelling was rather unusual, and kept me flipping the pages until the very end. I loved the humor, the dynamic between Grant and Penelope was so much fun!
Their game of cat and mouse was absolutely delightful, their playful flirtation was irresistible. This book was well-written, the alternating past-present storytelling slowed down the pace of the story, though. The characters were engaging, intriguing and well-developed, the plot was well-constructed and mysterious. I’m really looking forward to reading more in this series.
I received an advanced copy of this book, from the publisher, via NetGalley.
