Between Two Thieves

Carina. Jun. 2021. ebk. ISBN 9780369703125. $4.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Nikki Russo and Wade Palmer once made the perfect team: he could con anyone into distraction with his charm while Nikki stole from their turned backs. When far from the scene of the crime, their partnership was even more intimate. Years later, Wade has mostly gone straight, working behind the scenes in a security company. When Nikki’s father, Dodger, comes to him, injured and beholden to a local crime lord, Wade declares this is the last time he will help the old man out of his troubles. Nikki, meanwhile, has continued to hone her skill and joined up with a team stealing priceless art to right wrongdoings. As Nikki cases the latest mark, she’s shocked to find Wade at the same party, working his own con. After the same painting and with Dodger’s life on the line, the former duo, both professionally and privately, quickly find their old rhythm and discover the new complications of their chosen paths. Both Nikki and Wade have found friends who have their backs and neither is willing to abandon their mission. In between the heists and the cons, they try to determine if a compromise is even possible.
VERDICT Packed with heists, intrigues, and a steamy romance, Steele’s second in the “Counterfeit Capers” series (after It Takes a Thief) is perfect for an action-filled weekend read.
