Keep your lover close and your enemy closer…
After giving in to a fiery night of passion, island adventurer Steph Anderson and bounty hunter Jake Harlowe are back to square one. With millions in stolen jewels at stake, it’s hard for Steph not to question her new partner’s true motives—no matter how sexy he might be. Jake is hungry for more of Steph, but he can sense her growing mistrust, which only fuels his own doubts. Worse, there’s undeniable evidence that someone else is now after the jewels—and that they are both in real danger.
Fighting against their magnetic attraction is a distraction these two can’t afford. In order to survive, they’ll have to pull off one more heist—and trust each other with something even more precious than jewels: their hearts.
4 Star Review by Ashley
I messed up a little. I saw a hot cover and the name Lauren Blakely and jumped right in without realizing that The Sapphire Heist was book two in a duet- whoops! So yes you should read part one, The Sapphire Affair first or you will be a touch confused as I was in the beginning. But it all eventually catches up and makes sense.
I really enjoyed the chemistry and mistrust between Jake and Steph. These two had so much riding on their "mission" but most of all, their hearts. In a world that is rooted in lies and half truths, these two didn't know who to trust but each other and even then it was shaky. But when they started working together, instead of working their own angle, things started to fall into place.
As for the whodunit...well you're just going to have to read to find out! Jake and Steph's journey was full of fun antics and smokin' hot sexy time and, of course, feeling developing. The big question loomed about what would happen when their mission was complete. Just know, while their Lauren Blakely once again gave me characters I couldn't help but fall and root for and want more of!
