Reid (Mickey Chambers Shakes It Up) puts a romantic twist on the heist novel. Celeste St. Pierre gave up being a professional jewel thief five years ago when a job went horribly wrong and her relationship ended. Now she lives a double life. By day she sells antiques, but she can’t quite let go of her love of shiny things and carries off small thefts by night. Life is perfect until her old mentor Dr. Doris Grant dies, leaving her a final request—assemble the old gang for one more heist. Unable to refuse this last wish, Celeste finds herself thrown together with her ex, Dr. Magnus Larsson. The job takes the team to Stockholm, the site of a failed robbery that tore Celeste and Magnus apart. Now, as they traverse the globe in order to honor their mentor’s last request, sparks fly both in and out of the bedroom.
VERDICT Filled with witty banter, delightful secondary characters, and steamy sex scenes, this fast-paced second-chance romance is sure to please.
