He’s so close his face blurs, he slips one hand up along my cheek easing me toward him. I have enough time to wet my dry lips before his mouth fuses with mine. Oh my God, he’s kissing me. His beard scrapes my skin, and his tongue caresses my lips before I let him inside. The tart taste of green grapes and sweet Moscato wine explode across my taste buds while our mouths tango with each other. My heart pounds in my chest, blood rushing through my ears and speeding through my veins, pooling in my core.
My vagina does a cheer, give me a ‘D’, give me an ‘I’, give me a ‘C’….you know where she’s going with this, right?

The Thief by Kate McCarthy
Release Date: April 4th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
After years of working in the family business, Arcadia “Ace” Jones has become a renowned car thief. Trained from a tender age, it’s the only life she’s ever known. Longing for a future that doesn’t hold the promise of prison, she makes the decision to go straight and earn an honest living.
But the Marchetti Organisation won’t accept her retirement, forcing her to complete a job so big it’s almost impossible. She’s on a tight deadline but an irritating biker dude keeps thwarting her attempts to deliver.
Kelly Daniels likes to tinker with bikes and cars. He’s content with operating the car restoration business he owns alongside his partners, until an annoying little thief manages to steal a Dodge Charger right out from under his nose.
He gets pulled into her treacherous scheme and they form an unlikely bond. When it becomes a race against the clock to pull off the heist of the century or end up behind bars, Ace and Kelly realise they have more to lose than their freedom—each other.
My breath catches. This was only supposed to be about wild sex with a hot, irresistible man. I should have known. The moment he walked inside Fix I knew he was a paradox. A puzzle, one I played with, slowly fitting all the broken pieces together until the whole picture now sits before me, a picture so beautiful it steals my breath.
“Kelly.” He watches me, his face close to mine. “You were never meant to get involved. It’s not your fight.”
He draws back like I’ve slapped him the face.
I fumble for his hand, grabbing it before he can withdraw any further. “It’s always been my fight. I don’t have friends. I don’t have boyfriends. I don’t sleep around. I’ve always kept people at arms-length because I don’t live a life where I can answer the kinds of questions they ask of me. Then you came along and I thought maybe this once it would be nice, real fucking nice to pretend I could have something beautiful for myself. Only you weren’t what I expected. You pissed me off. You made me laugh and you made me ache, and you made me want you so damn much. You did all that and now I can’t imagine how I lived a life without you in it. You give so much of yourself without even realising it. Even now you’re taking my fight and making it your own, and I hate myself for being so selfish and letting you.”

5+++++ ‘Chunks & Donkey’ Stars
The Thief is original, with nail biting, on the edge of seat, fast paced and action-packed goodness that you won’t want to put it down. All in all, it is brilliant. I see Kate McCarthy becoming one of my favorite authors if any of her other books are like this one.
Arcadia ‘Ace’ Jones is one of the best in the business. She comes from a heritage of car fanatics and thieves. After so many years living the high and the adrenaline and especially what happened to her brother she wants out. Getting out isn’t that easy though.
I love Ace, I have a major girl crush on her and seriously she is one of the best heroines I have ever got to meet. She is strong, sassy, does what’s right. Has her head screwed on yet has kept her soft heart, her loyalty is one of kind and she loves unconditionally.
Kelly Daniels is a Sentinel and has been since the age of 15. He loves his cars, he loves to tinker, and he loves his club. He would lay down his life for those who are in his inner circle.
I love Kelly just as much as I love Ace. He is one strong alpha with such an high level of overprotectiveness that normally I would say it is too much but here? Nope, not at all. He is loyal and a bit of a softie. I love him flaws and all.
The characters are three dimensional and have a depth to them that I haven’t experienced in a long time. They work together. They are similar but not quite. Ace has a light that shines that keeps Kelly’s demons at bay. Kelly is Ace’s rock.
Let’s turn to the secondary characters. Ellington Echo Reid is a prodigy with bubble gum hair. Fingers that work magic as a
hacker security specialist. She is Ace’s partner in crime and yes had to bend the sistas code, but it was for Ace’s own good. Nothing too bad.
The Fox brothers oh lord I need them to have books like now. I know Luke is getting a book with Murphy/Hayden. Please hurry up.
These characters add so much more depth to the book.
From the first time that they met they had chemistry on all levels. Emotionally they were on the same wavelength and sexually no need to even mention that. They were scorching. I love how their interactions started off and although they were drawn to one another they both knew that what was between them is special. Even though there were some pesky reasons standing between them.
Their interactions flowed well be it that they were having a lark, or it went over to something serious. Or when it was time to get down and dirty.
The Writing & Plot.
The beginning of the book absolutely gutted me. The author doesn’t hold back she gets down to the nitty gritty and I was shocked, sad and amazed by the prologue. Ms. McCarthy’s writing is top notch. She knows how to lay the foundation for an epic story. I personally think that I got an epic story.
From Ace boosting cars to Kelly helping her. The background and in-depth story that happened between Kelly and Casey, his estranged brother where Kelly couldn’t quite let that grudge go. Or with Ace and Mason and the differences that they had. But family is family and you go through thick or thin. Boosting 12 cars in 12 weeks is no easy feat especially when Kelly gets involved. Ace’s nine lives are about to end. There is only so much luck you can have.
I was captivated with the story, it’s riveting. You just didn’t know what was going to happen next. Which for me personally is always refreshing.
I am so glad that I took a chance with this author. It is everything I want in a book. I just need to back track and read the series as they are somewhat interconnected.

Being Sunday, I decide to take a break from memory lane. I snatch a worn historical romance paperback from Gran’s bookshelf and slide into my brand new white bikini. Grabbing my towel and a Mike’s Hard Lemonade from the fridge, I head out back.
The sun feels amazing on my skin. I inhale the breeze, tasting the salt of the ocean on my tongue. I drop my towel on the lawn chair and get comfortable. My shades are down, and my book is ready to be dominated.
“This is nice,” I hum to myself, lifting my lemonade and taking a nice sip.
And out it all repels as I spit and choke on it.
I knock my sunglasses halfway down my nose as my eyes threaten to fall out of their sockets. Where in holy heavens did he come from? The half-naked man leaning on his balcony across the way. My tongue about falls out of my mouth. Is that Numbers? And holy shit, when did he get so much muscle? I’d call him fit, but that’s not fit. That’s like, “Hi, I eat muscle for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now I’m just all muscle.”
I wipe at my chin, unsure whether it’s lemonade splatter or I’m drooling. I’m probably drooling. I wasn’t paying attention to much of him yesterday when he was acting all crazy on my front step. I just wanted him gone. To be honest, while he was babbling, I was trying to dig in the back of my brain for my old high school karate moves in case he tried something on me. Looking at him now, I wish he had.
He lifts his hand, threading his large hand through his hair and dragging his fingers down his hard chest covered in a dusting of hair. “Oh boy, where’s that hand going?” I mumble, licking my lips. Oh yeah. I see where this is going. Yep, oh yeah… Did I just moan?
Oh, hell yeah I did, but it’s so worth it. His hand dips down into his board shorts and he adjusts himself. Feel free to pull them down. Show us the goods, I think, mentally visualizing just how big his junk is. He’s a pretty big guy. Big hands. Theory says, and all.
Watching him fondle himself in all his hot glory, my curiosity piques. How old is he really? He sure had a reason to take offense by my calling him old. He certainly doesn’t look old. He surely looks a zillion times hotter than Jimmy, and he was only twenty-eight. I’m not an age wizard, but if I had to guess, I’d say late thirties, early forties. Definitely a bit out of my age range. Why? No idea. No real reason screaming stay away. Well, besides the major one being he wants to evict me, tear down my Gran’s life of memories, and probably build a gym in its place.
Yeah, that’s a good enough reason.
It also reminds me it’s the guys who look appealing on the outside that usually turn out to be dicks on the inside.

I was intrigued by the blurb on this one and as it isn’t what I usually go for in a read I’d thought I’d give it a try.
I can see why it got such high ratings for me it didn’t quite work out.
I found the beginning to be extremely slow but the author wanted to give us a background to both characters in the book. The timeline confused me as Kyle was 2010s and Rebecca was 2007 I think.
The characters are three dimensional and the book has many a twist and turns but unfortunately the emotions I wanted to have been stirred up in me with a psychological thriller just didn’t happen.
This is me and not the book.
