How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days meets White Collar in this sassy and sweet romantic comedy, new from bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis, writing as Kay Marie.
All Jolene Carter has ever wanted is a bakery of her own. There’s only one problem. Her father, Robert Carter, is a world-renowned art thief and she’s, well, sort of his protégé. But he’s promised her this next job in New York will be their last, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her dreams…especially not the distractingly delicious FBI agent hot on her tail.
Agent Nate Parker has been on the Robert Carter case for years, and if rumors of the aging criminal’s retirement are true, this might be his last chance to nail him. With the legacy of his late father in the back of his mind, the stakes are more personal than anyone realizes. He won’t let anything stand in the way of justice…especially not the red-headed vixen who keeps giving him the slip.
He’s a cop who’d never bend. She’s a con who’ll never break. But all’s fair in love and larceny…
First, thank you for the free review copy. I want to add that I wasn’t compensated for this honest review.
OMG. I really liked this book. It was the character dynamic and chemistry between the two main characters: Jo Carter and Nate Parker. Talk about opposites attracting.
The story itself, the FBI sting and other stuff, was decent, but it was the chemistry of the two that really got me. I was almost laughing at every moment the two made contact. The romance is slow, but passionate. It is definitely a read for someone looking for a quick romance and something to keep them from being over saturated with other books.
The writing style is quick to get into and not difficult at all. I honestly didn’t find anything wrong in the writing itself. The narration is playful and yet has the serious tones you would expect in a book about organized crime and the FBI. My only wonder is how believable it is for the FBI to be where Jo is at in the beginning of the book. Granted, I know nothing about it and that probably does happen. So, for that, I suspended disbelief but it wasn’t enough to push me away from the book.
If anything, it brought a beautiful meeting scene between our two leads. OMG I loved it. The balls Jo has!
I am definitely recommending this to my mother and I’ve already recommended it to a friend. It is fun, fast paced, and an enjoyable ride.
Final rating: 4/5
