What an emotive story this proved to be! As a child, Holly Campbell had been taught how to into breaking into safes and properties to steal items by her uncle who was supposed to be looking after her and her younger, autistic brother. She had no real choice if she wanted to protect herself and her vulnerable brother. It took years for the two to escape from him and she is always ready to run again to escape from him but is trying to stick to the straight and narrow. She’s a brilliant, caring character and it is so easy to relate to her and her turmoil because of the brilliant writing of the author.
Holly rarely trusts anyone, so for her to have a one-night stand is definitely out of the ordinary – even if he is Santa! When she discovers the identity of the man involved, millionaire Jake Lawson, she’s devastated to learn that Jake is the next victim of her Uncle and is determined to right the wrong perpetrated unwittingly by her brother. When Jake catches her, he believes she’s up to mischief and is determined to thwart her. He’s determined she won’t steal from him or undermine his business – but he’ll really need to protect his heart rather than property! He’s a delicious, handsome, hunk who really doesn’t understand why he wants to know more about Holly and to uncover her secrets. She’s so used to protecting Liam, can she open her heart to trust Jake, too?
I loved this story with the intrigue, secrets and lots and lots of love. The chemistry between Holly and Jake is explosive. Both had traumatic childhoods and neither finds trusting others easy. Their portrayal is superb, making it easy for readers to relate to their angst and turmoil. The mystery aspect is well paced with plenty of ups and downs, twists and turns, to keep the reader engaged and enthralled. I have no hesitation at highly recommending this, I really enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading more in this series in future!
I requested and was given a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion after choosing to read it.
Holly Campbell is trying to turn her life around. But, to protect her younger brother, she has one last job to complete. All she needs to do is use her unique skills to break into the safe on a yacht—millionaire Jake Lawson’s yacht—a man Holly had a one-night stand with before she knew his true identity.
Jake knows Holly can’t be trusted. He believes she used the one night stand as a decoy to steal from his company and he knows she’s up to something again. Jake’s determined to figure out what and stop her. He won’t let her take anything from him, least of all his heart.
