I’m a sucker for the bad boys (only the ones with hearts of gold, of course!). So, naturally, I fell under the spell of Lex Leopold. Devilish and charming, intelligent and capable, how could you not fall for a guy like that? Oh, wait . . . I’m supposed to be reviewing the book! Silly me!
The Cupid Caper is the first in a new series for Larissa Reinhart. I’ve read several other titles by her and have never been disappointed. The cons come fast and furious in this story, but former grifter Finley Goodhart is reluctant to get back in the game. Until she learns that her closest friend is dead–most likely murdered. The righteous cause of avenging her friend pulls Fin back into Lex’s circle–and his arms. But Fin won’t fall easily–for the con or the con man.
Action, adventure, intrigue, intellect, and just the right amount of romance. A great debut to a new series–I’m on the hook for more!
About the Book
Sassy, Sexy, Southern Suspense
She uses her criminal past to catch crooks. He wants her back. In the grift. And in his life. Can Finley Goodhart convince Lex that doing good is the greatest hustle of all?
Ex-grifter Finley Goodhart may try to stay on the straight and narrow, but walking that thin line becomes wobbly when she believes her friend Penny was murdered. The last thing she wants is to work with her ex-partner (and ex-boyfriend), the brilliant (brilliantly frustrating) British con artist, Lex Leopold. However, when it appears Penny’s demise might be related to an exclusive matchmaking service for millionaires, Fin needs Lex’s help to pull a long con to get the goods on Penny.
Romance is in the air for hustlers, gangsters, and their marks. Unfortunately for Fin and Lex, infiltrating the racket doesn’t make for a match made in heaven. This Valentine swindle could stop their hearts for good.
