BOOK REVIEW- THE DANGEROUS THIEF by Mallory Crowe
James Weston hasn't given a damn about anything or anyone ever since the first time he took a life. Except now the hired killer is on a very different type of job: Babysitting.
Willa Belli has trouble following her. She is used to partying and trips to the most exotic parts of the world, but her glamorous lifestyle has taken a heavy blow. Now that she knows exactly where her father's money comes from, she's determined to finally do something right and put a stop to it. That is if she can stay alive long enough.
But the stakes are high as her father's men comb the country for her and she's forced to put her trust in a stranger who seems torn between ignoring her and staring with a lust from her deepest fantasies. But she needs to be careful. Because James Weston is deadly, greedy and sexy as hell. AMAZON 4.5
The opening chapter starts out really good and I really enjoyed this story. Although I have read some of the prior books, this one was written in a way that I think it could be read as a stand-alone. For me it was like revisiting friends and meeting new ones. Willa was a really good main character, a "richy" rich woman with no real goals in life except partying and shopping with her Daddy footing the bill. You'd think that she would be someone with very little character when you read that, but don't count her out. She does draw the line on quite a few more things than you would think. One flaw though is that when she is nervous she prattles on and on. James is a no nonsense get it done kind of man and he is not impressed when he first takes off with Willa. He's kind of disgusted with his "babysitting" job but he will do it and his attitude is that she will just have to fall in line with how he does things. Yeah, in his dreams.
There is plenty of action and some surprises as the story unfolds. I think this is a book that I will be adding on the list of one of my favorites of the series.
I received an advanced copy of this book, and this is my honest opinion of it.
