Blakely tackles a heist novel that’s heavier on sex and hyped-up mistrust than on true emotional conflict, but a fun story, upscale beach setting, and sizzling chemistry mean that fans likely won’t care. The cliffhanger ending will keep them coming back for more.

Synopsis

Seduction hotter than stolen jewels in this new series from the New York Times bestselling author of Big Rock.

Bounty hunter Jake Harlowe knows how to track a criminal. So when a group of swindled shareholders hire him to trail their former CEO, Jake expects a quick trip to the Cayman Islands to close another case. Until a devastatingly beautiful woman gets in the way.

Steph Anderson is visiting the Caymans for a rock climbing and dive trip—or so she tells Jake. She’s really trying to find out whether or not her stepfather embezzled money from his company. The last thing Steph needs is the distraction of a sexy, charming man whose kisses drive her wild.

Soon, the pair discover they’re after the same target—and millions in jewels. While Jake can’t be certain Steph isn’t working for her stepfather, and Steph can’t be certain Jake isn’t after the diamonds for himself, they can agree the heat between them is intense, and neither can deny the passion for long.

But the morning after, Steph discovers that she just might have slept with the enemy, and now she’ll have to outwit him to get everything she needs…

The well-paced development of the characters' relationship drives the story, while the investigation merely plods along until it's redeemed by an unexpectedly exciting ending. A steamy tropical romp with an adequate amount of suspense.
