The second part of Blakely’s jewel heist romance carries on right where The Sapphire Affair left off. Stop reading now if you haven’t read that because there will be spoilers.
Having just made a connection with Jake and spending the night together Steph is devastated to see that the safe in her hotel room is open and that the $10,000 diamond that her stepfather Eli gave her is gone. It could only have been Jake. He knew how to crack a safe, he’d proven that earlier. Now the sense of loss is even deeper because Steph is starting to fall for Jake that that makes the betrayal even worse.
This is a classic heist story with a rugged and handsome hero, a gorgeous and clever adventure seeking heroine and a back and forth story that will keep you guessing right till the end. And of course because it is a Blakely book there is a fair smattering of bedroom action as well! This is quite a short novella at 202 pages but even given that it is at a bargain price and if you enjoyed the Sapphire Affair you’ll be desperate to keep reading to see what happens to Jake and Steph.
