Catch Me If You Can by Christine Bell….Review

CMIYC cover



Sadie Leighton might spend her days slinging hash, but she spends her nights in disguise, conning the rich and undeserving, taking what she needs from the worst of the lot to make ends meet. This last job will be the mother lode…the one to get her out of the biz altogether, if only she can get past the infuriatingly gorgeous stranger intent on foiling her plans and haunting her dreams…

Jake Callahan has one thing on his mind, and that’s revenge. After years of preparation, he’s finally got all the pieces in place to destroy the man who cost his father his career and, ultimately, his life. Now that the end is in sight, he won’t let anything get in his way. Especially not some fake Countess trying to steal his mark, no matter how sexy she is.

Never one to back down from a challenge, Sadie engages Jake in a battle of wits, but winning it just might put her in danger of losing her heart…


My review:

Catch Me If You Can is the newest book from author Christine Bell and was a thrill ride from start to finish!

When two cons meet up for the same mark, sparks ensue and not just because their jobs are in jeopardy. Sadie and Jake both have different reasons for going after the same man and neither one of them are about to back down. So what happens when you can’t beat em? You join em…and that’s exactly what Sadie and Jake do. They join forces to bring the mark down. But with combined risk comes a bigger risk of danger and the stakes are much higher than a prize. It could mean life or death.

I really enjoyed the premise of this story. It had a great Mr. & Mrs. Smith fell to it where duplicity and sex appeal had equal measure. Sadie and Jake were both interesting characters that made me want to cheer them on, even though they were technically trying to commit a crime. The chemistry was also great between them with the added thrill of being caught in the chase fueling the intensity of their attraction. I also admired the reasons behind both Sadie’s and Jake’s motivation for the con.

I certainly don’t want to ruin any of the story and the tense and exciting situations that arise but take my word that it is a fantastic roller coaster ride!

Thank you, Christine, for an exciting and smoking hot read!
