Review:The Family Jewels by Christine Bell

Sadie Leighton spends her days slinging hash, but she spends her nights stealing from the rich and undeserving, taking what she needs from the worst of the lot to make ends meet. This last job is supposed to 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…

What I thought about The Family Jewels

Sadie learned early in her life how to run a confidence game, and now she uses those skills to make ends meet.  When she's got to pay for her sister's medical treatments, she resorts to what she knows best  for her last job.

Jake is one very smooth and hot man and Sadie is attracted to him from the start, but he catches on to her con game quickly.  Instead of tearing them apart, their common enemy brings them together, and things get very riveting and intense.

Christine Bell creates two interesting and entertaining characters in Jake and Sadie.  They really carried the story for me, as I had to know what was going to happen between them once the truth came out.  There were some slow spots and some predictability, but overall, The Family Jewels is a sexy story about two people looking for revenge and finding love along the way.
