I enjoyed this read and loved the dynamic of the FBI Art Crimes agent and the sometimes art thief. I thought the writing was pretty good and the unique voices of each character were done really well; you can clearly tell whose POV you're reading. The initial interactions and fun times were a bit abrupt and very anger filled but things eventually settled.
Amory Vaughn: His family wealthy Foundation has allowed Vaughn to live the lifestyle he enjoys the most but it's also left him alone as he struggles to find someone who desires him for who he is and not the size of his wallet. A southern gentlemen with expensive tastes, Vaughn also enjoys the occasional thief of art work and he's never been bothered by the questionable morality of what he does.
William Fox: The Art Crimes division of the FBI has been William's long time dream and he loves everything that the FBI and the justice system stands for. But when he meets Vaughn and is confronted with this thief, he doesn't know how to hold onto his staunch morals and still be with Vaughn. Williams likes things in black and white and accepting Vaughn's eccentricities will be hard.
WHAT I LIKED
-- I really enjoyed the tension between an art thief and an FBI agent. This set up a lot of good scenarios where the Vaughn and William have to confront their personal morals and how it affects other people.
-- I liked the growth both characters go through as they learn to see the world through someone else's eyes. Both characters are very strong willed and believe strongly in how they see things, so this was a challenge for both, especially William.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
-- The first intimate scene between these two was a little off for me. It's clearly a case of insta-lust, which is fine with me; I don't mind characters that jump into things with little knowledge of each other. However, the moments leading from talking to intimacy were just very abrupt and something was missing. I have a hard time describing it but it was most evident during their first time together, but also still lingering in a few of the intimate scenes that follow. There was also a lot of anger in the early scenes because William is frustrated by this attraction to a thief. This may have been affecting how I perceived the beginning of the book.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to read <i>Heart of Steal</i> because I was not in the mood to read about an art thief, but I am so glad I did. The amazing writing sucked me into the story and it definitely was not what I expected.
William Fox works for the FBI’s Art Crimes Division. He enjoys art, which makes him good at his job. While at a party that his sister Charlie, a party planner, is working, he notices the gorgeous philanthropist, Amory Vaughn, who is a billionaire that is used to get everything he wants. Right now, he wants William Fox. But what happens when William finds out Vaughn secret.
I loved both William and Vaughn. They were total opposites but the way Vaughn was so devoted to William was so adorable and sweet. He just wanted William to be happy and made every effort to make sure of it.
The only minor complaint I have is that sometimes the description of almost everything took me out of the story, especially when they were eating. At one point, the dinner they were eating had jackfruit in it. Of course I starting thinking <i>how do you even eat jackfruit? Is it sweet, does it have a lot of seeds, can you cook it…..</i> Other than that, it was a really sweet story that I highly recommend.
Unlike many a romance plot, this one hurts. When things break, it's painfully warranted.
I liked the way their differences chaffed at their attraction. I liked the time this took, the events that built understanding and displayed differing points of view. I loved the moments of discovery, like the cookies, and the cat. I loved the sex scenes. They're well done, and each one shown delivers to the reader important bits of character and plot. I love what's left out as much as what's included, the artful writing, the ability. And I love where it ends.
The buttoned up special agent, William Fox and the millionaire philanthropist, Amory Vaughn could not possibly come from two more different world's and yet through a twist of fate they meet unaware of who the other is at a party William's twin sister Charlotte is throwing and the sparks that fly between these two was so combustible that I'm amazed my cell survived the reading. Seriously guys it was intense and that is just the start of this unconventional tale of love, passion and finding your home in the most amazingly beautiful place you dared hope for.
So glad I one clicked this one and you will be too.
What I didn't like--Vaughn--rich, snobby, spoiled. Aware of his privilege but still willing to wield it like a sword. His disdain for the way ordinary folks dress, live, and eat pissed me off more than once. He has some redeeming qualities--he is polite, attractive, and a philanthropist but that was not enough for me to like him. However, Will seems to love him so there's that.
The biggest surprise was that I enjoyed reading the book even though I did not like one of the MC's. I still think Will will eventually realize Vaughn is not good enough for him.
