This is a book I can defiantly see being made into a movie, lots of great characters and a terrific story plot!
This book describes the encounter between two "charming cons", Cary and Isaac, very nice and lovable characters, who are both interested in a same deal but with a few different objectives and acting. We cannot totally blame them: one did it by necessity in seizing an opportunity that is offered to him, as the other, even without the same need, has certain "values": not rob the poorest, as the said. They sure don't look like "chorus boys" but we can appreciate them.
I liked the unusual situation (Sting in the heart of the vineyards), the way in which the relationship between the two characters settled gradually, all gently at first then strengthen. A few secondary characters (Marigold, Jules) are also interesting. The author seems have documented on the subject about wines. It is well written, clear, fluid and pleasant to read.
On the other hand, I had some difficulty to admit that a 14-years-old boy has forgot almost whole of his childhood, didn’t know even no more his name or who were his parents. At the end of the story we got some more explanation about the events relating to this period of Isaac’s life.
And about the mystery, at some point of the story and with some thought, we can easily identify who is actually Black Mamba.
In conclusion, a good book, with a nice story between two friendly "bad boys" that I have really enjoyed.
After growing up on the streets Isaac assumes his new identity in the hopes of playing the role of a rich elderly woman named Marigold’s long lost grandson. It’s his chance to hit the biggest jackpot of his con career. He just didn’t expect to like the woman so much. He’s moved into the giant house and is laying the groundwork. Gaining her trust. Things are going pretty good. Then suddenly a gorgeous older insurance agent shows up on his grandma’s doorstep and things get complicated.
It’s not Cary’s first time playing the “insurance agent”. He’s got his eye on a very rare set of wine in Marigold’s collection worth a fortune. Cary is very good at his chosen profession. He has an amazing assistant and partner to help him out. When Marigold invites him to stay in her guest house at her winery while conducting his audit Cary thinks this will be an easy job. The grandson, Isaac is already checking him out. Cary isn’t above using whatever advantage he can to get the job done. Including gaining the affections of Isaac. It doesn’t hurt Isaac is hot as hell. Neither man really knows who the other is at first but they fall for each other none the less. Both struggling with guilt and keeping their focus on the reason they’re both at the estate. To grift money from Marigold. Not to fall in love.
So I pretty much loved this entire story. Yes, I guessed who was who fairly early but I didn’t REALLY know until the end. It didn’t take away anything from the story for me. I loved the characters in this book. Isaac was good at conning but this job was his first one done alone. Without his need to make his mentor happy, he just didn’t feel right about it. I enjoyed his struggle with the guilt. He felt at home, safe and loved for the first time since he could remember. I was a total sucker for Isaac’s sweet and bad side. Because after he meets Cary. The boy got a little naughty. In the best way. And of course lets not forget he’s a con artist.
Cary was just the type of guy I like to read about. Clever and charming. Not exactly squeaky clean but totally likable. I could see him endearing himself to anybody he sets his focus on. I also like how he was supposed to be this true professional but when it came to wanting Isaac he just couldn’t control himself. They literally couldn’t keep their hands off each other. It was a delicious mix of adorable and lusty goodness.
The plot was pretty good I think. The ruthless con artist Black Mamba coming after them was pretty exciting and the effect it had on the guys was great. The anticipation of will they, won’t they pull of the heist was nice. I liked the MCs together and I liked them fighting. Both of them had conflicting sides that came out when they were together. Instant friction! The secondary characters were a lot of fun. It’s always nice when you enjoy reading the pages when the MCs aren’t together almost as much as when they are.
Overall this was a really enjoyable read. Unique. Likable characters. Great chemistry between the MCs. Fun! Another really good book by this author. Keep them coming please!
