The Sapphire Heist - cover


Keep your lover close and your enemy closer…

After giving in to a fiery night of passion, island adventurer Steph Anderson and bounty hunter Jake Harlowe are back to square one. With millions in stolen jewels at stake, it’s hard for Steph not to question her new partner’s true motives—no matter how sexy he might be. Jake is hungry for more of Steph, but he can sense her growing mistrust, which only fuels his own doubts. Worse, there’s undeniable evidence that someone else is now after the jewels—and that they are both in real danger.

Fighting against their magnetic attraction is a distraction these two can’t afford. In order to survive, they’ll have to pull off one more heist—and trust each other with something even more precious than jewels: their hearts.

Audiobook (narrated by Sebastian York)



This woman drove him wild. She was a pistol, a fiery, sexy, determined, tenacious woman who made him crazy, and who he wanted fiercely at the same damn time. “Do you want to try that whole thing again? Like you were doing in your room. Take off my shirt, and strip off my shorts, and pull off my boxers?”
Her lips quirked up. “I didn’t get to the boxers.”
“I know,” he said, raising an eyebrow. “Damn shame. Because I like it when you touch me. I like it when you take my clothes off and run your hands all over me. Do you like it when I do that to you?”
She nodded. “So much. So incredibly much,” she said, her voice breathy.
He backed her up against the railing, pressing his pelvis to her and caging her in with his arms. “Are you sure?”
He ground his hips against her, letting her feel the full length of his arousal.
Her breath came fast. “So sure,” she said, wrapping her arms around his lower back and tugging him close. “I want to finish what we were starting in the room.”
He laughed loudly and deeply. “Oh Steph. We barely got started. We hardly got started at all.”
She grabbed his shirt. “Can we please just fuck it out now?”
He cracked up at her question, at the sexy desperation in her voice. “Fuck it out?”
She nodded. “Yes. Your anger. Our mistrust. My doubt. Can we just once and for all fuck it out and let it go?”
He clasped her cheeks in his hands. “I can’t think of a damn thing I’d rather do now than fuck it out. Besides, it’s impossible for me to think straight and properly plan the next phase of Project Diamond unless you put your hands on the railing, bend over, and raise your skirt for me.”
Her eyes lit up, sparkling with a naughty kind of excitement. “Then please allow me to help you think straight.”
He laced a hand through her hair, yanked her close, and planted a hot, searing kiss on her delicious lips. She melted under his touch, and he loved it. Loved the way she responded.
As he kissed her, he lowered a hand to her leg and inched his fingers up the warm skin of her thighs, quickly finding what he wanted—the wet scrap of fabric between her legs. She was so damn turned on, just like he was. He groaned as he kissed her, his bones vibrating with lust as he ran his fingers against the evidence of her desire. He tugged off her underwear, broke the kiss, and spun her around.
Covering her back with his chest, he wrapped her hair in his hand and tugged gently. She gasped and arched her ass higher. Yup. That was his answer. She liked a little rough play. He brought his mouth to her ear. “Do you like it hard? Do you like it rough? Do you like it angry?”
She turned her head to look at him. “With you, so far I like everything.”

~ 4 Who doesn’t love a good heist Stars ~

The Sapphire Heist is the second and final book in Lauren Blakely’s Jewel Series. I thought this book was better than book 1. There was so much to this book, it kept me intrigued all the way through. When I thought the story was done and everything explained….Lauren went and threw me for a loop.

This book just like the first book was everything I expect when I read a Lauren Blakely book. She gives us amazing characters, a captivating storyline, humor, romance, suspense and overall a story that will leave me with a smile on my face.

This is another book I can’t say much about the storyline, but I will say this was a great conclusion to Steph and Jake’s story. All the questions that were raised in book 1 were answered in this book. As well as she added some other surprises and shockers you don’t expect!!! I loved watching Jake and Steph open up to each other. What happens though when their trust and faith is tested? Will Steph and Jake be able to trust each other and make things work out?? To get that answer you have to read this book.

As always with a Lauren Blakely book, her writing is flawless and effortless. Her pace and flow is spot on. I always enjoy her books. She has yet to write a book that has disappointed me. She will always be an automatic read for me. I will read any book she releases.

So I would for sure recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of the heist type story. If you like a book that has romance, suspense, and steamy sex, this is the series to read. If you are a fan of Lauren’s already, then these books you don’t want to miss!!!
