Cat Got Your Tongue?
By Rae Rivers
Release date Sept 22nd, 2013
A billionaire’s life and art collection are at risk. Who better to help than the daughter of a cat burglar?
When art collector Cole Anderson is targeted for his priceless Renoir, he reluctantly employs a bodyguard to upgrade his personal security. Imagine his surprise when she arrives—professional, capable, and sporting a ponytail and a gorgeous smile. Alex Foxley is all woman—sexy, feisty, and intimately familiar with the shady workings of the art underworld thanks to her mother’s connections.
While battling an explosive attraction for each other and thwarting thieves determined to have Cole’s Renoir at any cost, Cole and Alex must work together to protect his life and property—and uncover a secret neither of them knows exists. Will they discover who is behind the deadly conspiracy before it’s too late? Or will passion and lust blind them to what’s right under their noses?
“Perhaps we should up your bodyguards to two agents when you attend a more public event?”
Cole’s eyes flickered with amusement. “You think you can’t handle it on your own?”
Mm, she should have expected that from him. “I can handle it, Anderson. Just thinking ahead and trying to be prepared, that’s all.”
“You’re my arm candy with a kick, remember? You can handle me.”
“I can handle the press,” she said softly. “As for you, I’m not so sure.” She’d meant to tease him but to her surprise, she found her words had a ring of truth to them. She wasn’t sure if she could handle him – or the chemistry that sparked between them.
“If you can handle a bullet and a cat burglar, I should be a walk in the park.”
“Bullets and cat burglars are familiar to me. You are an entirely new game.”
“I like games.”
“Why am I not surprised?”
Dark eyes zeroed in on her and he gave her a slow, predatory smile. “Scared?”
No love amongst thieves
Hotness factor: it’s hot, it’s very hot
I’m all about strong female characters and Alex Foxley started the book being just that, great strong female character. She stopped a robbery and saved billionaire Cole Anderson. He hired her for his protection, but sparks fly between them…
I didn’t care much about Cole, apart from being nice looking I found him too much if an alpha male for Alex. We’re also missing a lot information about both characters, like their age and origins. The story is set in New York, but Cole speaks a lot like a Brit. It could be part of the mystery, but it threw me off a few times.
The pace was a little slow for my taste, especially when it comes to a mystery, but the love scenes were hot and I like the ending, as it opened a lot of possibilities. A sequel, maybe?
Overall, this was an entertaining, sexy tale about the art world and its thieves. The prologue was very enticing and pulled me in. I knew who “did it” from the beginning, but it was still nice to it unravelling.
I’m an avid reader and writer with a passion for writing romance novels. I live in Cape Town, South Africa, with my gorgeous husband, two beautiful children and a zoo of house pets. Besides writing, I love family time, the outdoors, travelling, watching TV series, reading and chocolate.
