This story is action packed like a mini-heist movie however it has a steamy, Insta-Everything AR twist. It has action and heat, however is more on the sweet side then the over the top dirty side.
Jules has been on the run from her ex and got a job with a company who makes ink. She didn't know that it was also a money laundering place and now she's forced to take the money to a drop safe. Once she does this, she’s out of their and on the run again as she’s just a sweetheart really that always ends up with the wrong people. However she didn't expect to have a knife placed at her throat and be kidnapped from the safe drop.
Cooper and his friends are taking back what Monte has taken from his community and gives it back to those who lost their jobs. A modern day Robin Hood if you will. However he hasn’t got a criminal bone in his body. He is enamoured with Jules from the minute he makes her his ‘hostage’....
I loved Cooper as the leader of the rebel thieves kidnapped Jules and went into protective mode when she had a panic attack. ‘She might have started out as my hostage, but I made sure she never wanted to leave.’
It has everything a reader comes to expect from these authors - A really quick sexy, romantic read with twists. The story contains alternating POV, insta-love, manipulation, mafia/drugs, manipulation, and triggers. It also has a romantic, dirty, hot, sexy and a virgin.
The two epilogues (one year and fifteen years later) might have been my favourite parts...
This story......Oh My Lawdy it is so so hot, Alexa Riley definitely has these charecters from burning up the sheets to burning a whole building down.... hot so hot. This book is worth every penny, it captures your attention and pulls you in so you can emerse yourself with the people in the story and their live.
Jules is a sweet soul with a damaged past that keeps coming back to haunt her, if only she could get away from people who want to use her. Can life get any sweeter for someone so gentle but damaged. Cooper modern day Robin Hood with a Bada$$ Alpha complex who is oh so gentle with the ones he love, can he commit the ultimate heist and steal a heart of an angel with broken wing. This is going to be the heist to end all heists.
I would recommend this book and author to anyone who loves a beautiful love an insta-love that you won't be able to put down once you start reading, I hope you adore this book as much as I have. Happy Reading ♡
What starts off one way ends up being total opposite. Jules is in danger from more than one source when she meets Cooper. Will he be more danger or her protector? This book ticked all the boxes for an Alexa Riley book, instalove, possessive men and their women as well as good storylines. The only downside is I want to know more about Cooper's brothers and I didn't want the book to end.
I loved, loved, loved Jules and Cooper and their story! It is angsty, sweet and a ride for sure. I was captivated by Jules and her sweetness and Cooper the modern day Robin hood. I devoured it! There isn't anything this duo can't do well.
