ARC Book Review - The Sapphire Affair By Lauren Blakely
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 Minute I heard about the The Sapphire Affair I was immediately interested in reading this book.So when I got the opportunity to read this book early I got to it as soon as I possibly could and I was not disappointed this book was wonderful ! It was an excellent start to the Jewel series .
In this book we follow Steph and Jake and Oh my gosh did I love these two! from the very first conversation they I was sold and I needed them to be together forever and ever lol they had such wonderful chemistry .The romance between these two was just smoking hot , sexy , fun and flirty and I loved it . Reading about them working together to locate the jewels was so interesting, the whole thing played out like the beginning of a heist movie in my head. The best way I could describe this story is that its like a picture puzzle and in ever chapter we another puzzle piece but your still not absolutely certain even at the end of this book exactly where each piece goes and I loved that it was like this. I also wanted to talk about the setting this book makes me want to visit the Cayman Islands so bad right now the pictures that forms in your head based of Lauren Blakely descriptions are just beautiful.Between the steamy hot romance , the beautiful setting of the Cayman Island , the fantastic cast of characters and the plot that keeps your eyes on the page Lauren Blakely has created a fantastic story with The Sapphire Affair .
The Sapphire Affair is a sexy , romantic , fun ,exciting story that was such a pleasure to read and after reading the end of the book I am very excited to read book 2 The Sapphire Heist. If you love all these things in your books I suggest you pick up a copy when it comes out July 12, 2016.
