About The Book:

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 Review:

The ThiefThe Thief by Kate McCarthy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Thief by Kate McCarthy is a complex story of a talented car thief and the biker that tames her wild heart. Told in dual POV between Arcadia "Ace" Jones and the ridiculously hot Kelly "Shade" Daniels. Starting with a young Kelly and delving deep into the family dynamics of Ace and company this book was wonderful.

Sexy times - check.
Romance - check.
Danger - check.
Sexy times - wait, I did that one already :-D

Ace is on a mission to go straight. no more thieving. Her "boss" Tony refuses to let her quit and gives another job to complete or risk losing her family members. Running into Kelly is probably the best thing that could have happened to Ace BUT she doesn't quite know it yet and watching their story unfold while they are each deciding how to come clean with the other about their pasts helps connect the reader to the character and their flaws.

Kelly has his own issues. An estranged brother, a dark past, and an insatiable need for this wild woman in his life.

Loved this - felt that while it was a standalone perhaps there are other books from this author that, if I had read them, I would be more familiar with secondary characters, but as this is my first book from this author I cannot yet confirm that. This won't be the last book I read from her though. Enjoy!
