ABOUT THE SAPPHIRE AFFAIR (Jewel Novel #1):
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 SAPPHIRE AFFAIR Review:

~ 4 Sapphire Stars ~
The Sapphire Affair was in interesting and captivating start to a two book series by Lauren Blakely.
This book had everything we’ve come to expect from a Lauren Blakely book. We got amazing characters, fun banter, panty melting scenes and an intriguing storyline that will suck you in. This book was so much more than a romance novel, She gave us a little mystery to go with it.
I don’t want to say too much about this storyline, except that this book really sets up Jake and Steph’s story. We learned a lot of background on them and how they come to work together. They also realize they have amazing chemistry and try to fight it!! This book created a lot of questions for me, that I look forward to learning the answers to in the next book. The mystery of the story was just briefly touched on in my opinion, I personally was hoping for a little more of that in this book and a little less of their angst.
As always with a book by Lauren Blakely, the writing is effortless and smooth. The flow was perfect. I did think there was a little too much inner dialogue at times, which slowed the pace for me a little bit, but I still really enjoyed this book. I have never been disappointed with a book from Ms. Blakely.
Being that this is a two book series, The Sapphire Affair ends on a Cliffhanger, but it wasn’t one that will leave you pulling your hair out…it just adds more questions??? If you don’t like cliffhangers, just be happy to know that The Sapphire Heist (Book 2) releases in August so there isn’t too long of a wait for the final book.
So if you are looking for the perfect beach read, that gives you witty banter, sexy times, and mystery to keep you guessing, then The Sapphire Affair is the book to read. You really can’t go wrong with a Lauren Blakely book.
