It Takes a Thief by Sloane Steele

When catching a thief requires becoming one. It Takes a Thief by Sloane Steele.

Don’t miss this new high-stakes romantic caper series, where they’re planning the art heist of the century—to right the wrongs of the past.

When catching a thief requires becoming one.

Jared Towers has skills. One of them is being able to talk his way out of—or into—anything.

Audrey Abbott has skills, too. Need something hacked and only the best will do? She’s your girl.

He’s charming.

She’s reclusive.

They have absolutely nothing in common—except for a driving desire to take care of those who need it the most.

For Jared, that means assembling a team of thieves to steal back what rightfully belongs to the victims of a crime perpetrated by his own father. For Audrey, it means doing whatever she can to make sure her grandma never has to worry again.

And now they have something else in common: the art heist of the century.

It was supposed to be all business. Get in and get out, then move on to the next target. But when Jared finds himself falling for Audrey, artwork isn’t the only thing at risk of being stolen...

This is a first for me from this author and it sounded interesting. I was not disappointed, although I wasn't expecting it to end where it did.

Jared and his cousin, Mia, are trying to right wrongs done to their families by their own fathers. But in order to do this, they have to have people with the knowledge in the art of stealing and not getting caught. They have to find a forger (London) to make copies of the items they want to replace, a grifter (Nikki) to replace the forged item with the real one, and a hacker (Data/Audrey) to take care of all of their computer needs.

What Jared wasn't expecting was to have a strong pull towards the hacker. He has been using her expertise for a while now but when they met, the sizzle was there for them both.

Can this new team work together to make a wrong right? What happens when Audrey learns who Jared really is?

I really enjoyed this story, it is full of suspense that will keep you wondering how they will pull this job off without getting caught. With a romantic interest thrown in to make it even better. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.

This is the first book in a series, and I really enjoyed the setup, the reveal, and the twist – as well as the romance, which is rather wonderfully nerdy!

Jared and his cousin, Mia, suffered greatly when their fathers escaped justice after a huge Ponzi con. They have recovered most of their status by hard work and being independently wealthy, thanks to their mothers. They now want to right the wrongs the best they can, and plan on using the wealth of their absent fathers' friends to fund such restitution. To do that, they have to find suitable individuals to do the deeds themselves... and so they engage a thief, a hacker, and a forger.

I love how it all falls into place (haha!) or rather, how they have to really work at overcoming all the challenges and through it become a cohesive team, as well as Jared and Audrey forming an unexpectedly close bond. Mia really isn't impressed with how things work, as she is so careful of the plan working out.

Hugely entertaining story with the promise of some more crazy adventures to come, and I am hoping more passionate romance for one of the team!
