The Sapphire Affair - cover


Bounty hunter Jake Harlowe knows how to track a criminal. So when a group of swindled shareholders hires him to trail their former CEO, Jake expects a quick trip to the Cayman Islands to close another case. Until a devastatingly beautiful woman gets in the way.

Steph Anderson is visiting the Caymans for a rock climbing and dive trip—or so she tells Jake. She’s really trying to find out whether or not her stepfather embezzled money from his company. The last thing Steph needs is the distraction of a sexy, charming man whose kisses drive her wild.

Soon, the pair discover they’re after the same target—and millions in jewels. While Jake can’t be certain Steph isn’t working for her stepfather, and Steph can’t be certain Jake isn’t after the diamonds for himself, they can agree the heat between them is intense, and neither can deny the passion for long.

But the morning after, Steph discovers that she just might have slept with the enemy, and now she’ll have to outwit him to get everything she needs…

The premise of this book sounded fun and I was looking forward to reading it. I wasn’t prepared to freaking LOVE it! This book is full of humor, mystery, adventure, and sexy chemistry. I didn’t expect to find myself laughing out loud so often. It was just a really fabulous read.

Jake is a sexy, panty-melting alpha with sarcastic wit and deliciously dirty mouth. He’s a…ahem, retrieval specialist… A nice way of saying thief. Except, Jake is basically a modern day Robin Hood, he goes after stolen items and returns them to their owners. He’s a family man, dedicated to caring for his three siblings and it fuels his workaholic mindset. He doesn’t have time for relationships, or the hassle that accompanies them. Meeting Steph is throws a wrench in his path, an irresistible, funny, beautiful wrench. But, she’s not only a threat to his personal life, she is connected to his current job. Now he has to decide if he wants to use her to further his career and if he does, how is he going to stay out of her bed? The indecision, makes him more human, but also, it breaks out facets of his personality that I don’t think the reader would have seen otherwise.

Steph is loveable from the moment we meet her. She’s practically a mermaid, which is fitting considering her business includes the name Ariel. After a bad split with an ex, she is rebuilding her sea tour business and it takes her to the Cayman’s where she decides to also investigate allegations against her former step-father. Her initial run-in with Jake is simply coincidence, but when it comes to light that they are after the same prize, she has to decide whether she can trust him. Working together seems the logical choice, but fighting their sizzling attraction is practically a pipe dream the longer they are together.

These two are a blast together, their banter is sharp-tongued and funny. The chemistry is off the charts and Jake will have you melting at his feet right along with Steph. Beware the cliff-hanger! And yet, it was totally worth it. This book definitely ranks up high on my reread list and I can’t wait to finish the rest of Steph and Jake’s story!
