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.
✮✮✮ THE SAPPHIRE HEIST is here! From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Blakely’s book two in her contemporary romance Jewel Novel series, this enemies-to-lovers series is filled with sex, wit, glamour, and high stakes, with a rugged, ex-military, dirty-talking alpha hero! Don’t miss this explosive and passionate series! ✮✮✮
The Sapphire Heist is the second book in the Jewel series by Lauren Blakely. The Sapphire Heist is an adult romantic suspense series about bodyguards and jewel heists and all kinds of things that are sure to get your heart pumping. The novel is told in dual narrative, which is really my very favorite narration method. Nowadays, whenever I pick up a book told entirely from one person’s point of view, I find myself missing the other person. I really enjoyed the tension in the air throughout the story, and the passion between Jake and Steph. This was a great read for me and I can’t wait for more. This is a continuation of the first book in the series, The Sapphire Affair, so if you have not read book one, you need to start there. (you can check out my review here)
I think it is hilarious how neither Jake nor Steph fully trust the other one. They are each so used to either being dishonest or dealing with dishonest people, that their trust meter is so shattered. It is the cause of most of their strife in this novel, and I don’t think that is going anywhere anytime soon. I still really like the two of them together, but I will admit that aspect got a little old before the book was over. But in the end that didn’t matter too much because their chemistry is still off the charts! And because the mystery and suspense is so awesome that you can’t help but fall in love with this series.
I still think this series would make a kickass movie. The suspense is edge of your seat stuff, the mystery is awesome and the romance will have you thinking Antarctica is too hot. This is a wild ride of a book, and I can’t wait for more. (There had better be more!)
