This book is fun to try and decide which author worked on which part. Evanovich has a really distinctive voice, but when it comes to men… well she’d rather undress them than get inside their heads, so that’s where Goldberg comes in. This book was really fun. Sexy without any sex scenes. Full of action and surprises. The plot twist is right near the beginning of the book, but it’s worth it. Such a fun story to read. Can’t wait until I get the second in the series from the waiting list at the library!

I liked this one better than the Stephanie plum books. It has more of an edge, and is somewhat more unexpected. I assume this is the influence of her co-author. I recommend it.

Not as good as the Stephanie Plum books, and took about halfway before I started to really enjoy it. But it was a good beach book read, and I grew to like the characters.

Fabulous book! Not Stephanie Plum, but it has all all the wit, cleverness, twists and turns I've come to expect from Stephanie Plum. Read it and be prepared to enjoy!

I have to admit that I never read the jacket description and therefore thought it was another Stephanie Plum book, which I love, so I was actually a bit disappointed at first. I was fairly intrigued by the beginning, but Chapter 8 turned the corner for what I thought was a predictable read. This book was a quick read with lots of action. Love the flirty love-war chemistry between the two main characters. I will definitely be waiting for another book in this series.

FBI Special Agent Kate O'Hare follows in the footsteps of her dad putting her military background to use for the good of her country. For the last five years she had doggedly pursued Nick Fox, a sexy international crook and con man who takes delight in her fierce attention and leaves Toblerones on her pillow.

His capture and her celebration are short-lived when Nick escapes custody and Kate is pulled from the case. Kate is furious. She locates Nick on the Greek island of Athos, which has forbidden any female presence for the past thousand years. With the aid of her father Kate takes a 'vacation', masquerades as a male, and parachutes under the cover of night to seek her target.

She finds Nick hiding in a centuries old stone and earthen hut built in the mouth of a cave in the company of two men; Agent in Charge Carl Jessup, her boss and Fletcher Bolton, deputy director of the FBI. In the clandestine meeting, Nick has agreed to work off the grid for the FBI. His job is to con one of the bigger cons and return over five hundred million dollars to the US. Her job is to make sure he does.

"You'd do that for me?" "You're my daughter, aren't you?" Kate smiled. Sure, he'd missed a lot of Chistmases and birthdays during her childhood, but not many fathers could be counted on to mount a prison break.

"I'll keep that in mind. What's the dress code tonight?"
"Missouri black tie," Nick said. "No shirt, no shoes, no service."
