ABOUT The Sapphire Affair:

Bounty hunter Jake Harlowe knows how to track a criminal. So when a group of swindled shareholders hires him to trail their former CEO, Jake expects a quick trip to the Cayman Islands to close another case. Until a devastatingly beautiful woman gets in the way.

Steph Anderson is visiting the Caymans for a rock climbing and dive trip—or so she tells Jake. She’s really trying to find out whether or not her stepfather embezzled money from his company. The last thing Steph needs is the distraction of a sexy, charming man whose kisses drive her wild.

Soon, the pair discover they’re after the same target—and millions in jewels. While Jake can’t be certain Steph isn’t working for her stepfather, and Steph can’t be certain Jake isn’t after the diamonds for himself, they can agree the heat between them is intense, and neither can deny the passion for long.

But the morning after, Steph discovers that she just might have slept with the enemy, and now she’ll have to outwit him to get everything she needs.


Review by: Gina 

This is the perfect summer, beach read!!! You have sun, sand, thieves, and a hot couple on the hunt! The Sapphire Affair is the first book in a two book series and book one did a great job on laying the ground work behind the story. Steph is trying to figure out if her stepdad embezzled money for his company. Jake is trying to find some answers for the shareholders of their former CEO. And soon Steph and Jake realize they are after the same man. 

There were a few hot and heavy scenes but the book's primary focus were the character's stories and how they are brought together. I felt there was a lot more talk than action in the book. It laid the foundation for the story but I wish there was more action. Something that would leave you on the edge of your seat. 

Overall, I really enjoyed the book! There were several laugh out loud moments and the storyline was a lot of fun! There was a little drama, a little suspense, a little heat and I can't wait to read the conclusion to the story!
