Happy New Year! 🙂
I started things off right today by finishing a book, Flirting with Danger by Suzanne Enoch. 52 more to go for the year …
It’s about Samantha Jellicoe, a professional thief who gets more than she bargained for when she breaks into the mansion of sexy millionaire Richard Addison. Sam is suspected of murder, and she and Addison strike a deal — he’ll help clear her name, and she won’t steal anything from himÂ — except maybe his heart …
If you like heist movies with a lot of romance like To Catch A Thief, you’ll like this book. Sam and Richard are equally matched in everything — brains, beauty, razor-sharp wits. And the heist scenes were interestingÂ without dwelling too much on gadgetry, which is always a plus.Â (I hateÂ authors like Tom Clancy who focus on every single detail of a weapon, etc.)
The only thing I wished were a tiny bit different was Richard. He really bullied Sam at times throughout the book and almost thought of her as another piece of his art collection. A little too alpha male for me, but he redeemed himself in the end by … well, I won’t spoil it for you.
And when I read the author bio,Â I had another reason to smile. It turns out that Suzanne once submitted a script for The A-Team, one of my favorite shows ever. So nice to read about another fan. I pity the fools who don’t watch that showÂ … 😉
