Series: Love of Thieves #1
Author: Blue Davis
Genre: Adult Steamy Romance
Release Date: May 27, 2016
Lexi Steele began as a jewel thief in Seattle. Brave, clever and a little reckless, she defied the status quo while satisfying her hunger for an adrenaline high. When a high-rise diamond heist went wrong, she promised herself to stick to retrieving unclaimed gold, which was less likely to lead to violent situations.
Did she sentence herself to a boring life? Hardly. She now trots around the globe, seeking lost treasure of the world. There’s just one problem. As exciting as her life is, she has no one to share it with.
James Ashton, her chief rival in the business, would love to fix this problem for her. Too bad they have been competing in the same field for almost a decade. Granted, they’ve been flirting for almost that whole time, but at the end of the day, business has always been business.
When Lexi discovers that she needs a man to help her deal with locals in Haiti, she makes a somewhat reluctant offer to split the take with him in return for a temporary partnership. Is the implausible partnership doomed from start, or will they cooperate and learn to work together?
When events take a turn for the worse, she and James must rely on each other to escape back to the States with the gold. Do they lay aside their differences and fight to succeed or do they push each other away and end in failure?
This is BOOK 1 in the Love of Thieves series. Contains sex and violence–for adults only.
This was the first book I have read by author Blue Davis. I rated it 3.5 stars due to the slow pace and almost too many characters involved in the storyline.
Lexi and James are two thieves looking for the same treasure. They usually work separately and against one another, but this one time they decide to partner together. Things go from quiet and boring to shootouts and fights.
James and Lexi begin to have a sexual relationship and James falls in love with Lexi, but can Lexi get over a past hurt and let James in? That’s the real question.
The story wasn’t predictable and the characters were well written without too much information for them. The relationship between the two main characters was funny, sweet and sexy all together.
Received an arc for an honest opinion.

Love isn’t always rosy. Some men are just trouble. Others are diamonds in the rough. My books feature strong women who keep holding on. A good man is hard to find, but what is even harder is finding one who will love and cherish you until the end of time.
I am a fresh new voice from L.A. I do hope you enjoy my stories. Thank you for reading!
