Lexi Steele began as a jewel thief in Seattle. Brave, clever and a little reckless, she defied the status quo while satisfying her hunger for an adrenaline high. When a high-rise diamond heist went wrong, she promised herself to stick to retrieving unclaimed gold, which was less likely to lead to violent situations.
Did she sentence herself to a boring life? Hardly. She now trots around the globe, seeking lost treasure of the world. There’s just one problem. As exciting as her life is, she has no one to share it with.
James Ashton, her chief rival in the business, would love to fix this problem for her. Too bad they have been competing in the same field for almost a decade. Granted, they’ve been flirting for almost that whole time, but at the end of the day, business has always been business.
When Lexi discovers that she needs a man to help her deal with locals in Haiti, she makes a somewhat reluctant offer to split the take with him in return for a temporary partnership. Is the implausible partnership doomed from start, or will they cooperate and learn to work together?
When events take a turn for the worse, she and James must rely on each other to escape back to the States with the gold. Do they lay aside their differences and fight to succeed or do they push each other away and end in failure?
This is BOOK 1 in the Love of Thieves series. Contains sex and violence–for adults only.

I usually do not pick copies of books up like this, but I was intrigued by the description. Than I began reading it. Lexi, on a dock, looking for a boat, not settling, not giving in to the locals. I was a bit put off, only a bit, with her looking for a boat, the damsel in distress? Wait, I have to disagree with this, because honestly she was just out of her element. She made some mistakes, or the author did, in making sure she was prepped, I almost felt like I was watching “Romancing the Stone” but with a twist. She is really not a damsel at all.
The author did a wonderful just jumping back and forth between the two protagonists. Though I almost felt that Lexi was the main one, James had his own voice. She had to count on someone else, she could not be the thief in charge. It kinda was like a LEVERAGE show, but without helping the helpless. The author really gave us strong personalities to fall in love with . The power between the two is moving. I laughed out loud, to the point my roommates were wondering what the heck! When I giggled and told them it was my book, I received eye rolls.
Now, what would I rate it? 3.75… so I am going to Amazon it as a 4. If You like adventure with your romance, if you want an in-depth and intriguing interpersonal relationship with your romance, pick it up! Enticing Journey did a great job picking this up and Blue did a wonderful job writing it!

Love isn’t always rosy. Some men are just trouble. Others are diamonds in the rough. My books feature strong women who keep holding on. A good man is hard to find, but what is even harder is finding one who will love and cherish you until the end of time.

I am a fresh new voice from L.A. I do hope you enjoy my stories. Thank you for reading!

  1. Hi Kriss! Thank you so much for reviewing Mint. You’re awesome!

  2. Oh, by the way…I was a background extra on several episodes of the television show “Leverage”, so you were right on point! You sensed it!
