The Sapphire Affair by Lauren Blakely

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…

This is a hot, sexy, and mysterious read, with a good dose of humour and fun thrown in. Jake is without doubt a man that you can immediately picture as a delicious alpha male; with a military background; a family business that ensures his orphaned siblings get the best all the same; and a history of mixing business with pleasure that he never plans on repeating. Steph has also been burned when her ex ruined her business, and her ex-step-dad stole from her mother, so men are not in the agenda, until she sees Jake!

Of course they are both after the same man, and have to deal with a level of chemistry that is off the charts, their distrust of each other, and trying to solve the mystery of where the money is... I read a lot of mystery books, and this plot works well, especially given the underlying issues of passion and romance that feature large. I love the humour, which for me fitted the scenario of being in the holiday paradise of the Caymans.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and seeing how things can move forward now.
