One of my favorite
movie series is the Oceans Eleven etc.
with Ocean's Thirteen being my all-time favorite.
I am a fan of reading about heists and thieves,
and so when I saw this book The Cocky Thief by Mallory Crowe, I knew I had to
read it. The book starts off with Austin Miles who is the best at what he does
which is the extraction of goods, he
leaves no trace and is at the top of everyone's list if they need something
worth a lot taken. He is hired to retrieve an expensive necklace. Austin goes
undercover as a lawyer and during his flight to the wedding, he meets Jennifer Murray. She happens to be the
bride-to-be's daughter. The pair hit it off,
and sparks fly. During the car ride to the wedding,
we also meet another of Jennifer's sister Melody. Upon arrival, though, we discover that Jennifer and her family are
thieves as well and that this marriage is just a set-up for her mother to steal
the Dragon's necklace and of course she needs her daughters to help. The Cocky
Thief reminded me of the movie The Heartbreakers which starred Jennifer Love
-Hewitt which had a mother/daughter team of con-women. The Cocky Thief is
filled with romantic suspense, action and adventure as we have the chemistry
flowing strongly between Jennifer and Austin throughout the story and then
Melody gets kidnapped , which sees the introduction of Jennifer's other sister
Toni and a few of Austin's shady friends. If you love Heist novels and Romantic
Suspense stories then The Cocky Thief by Mallory Crowe is the read for you.
