So, so many likes: The details are brilliant. Everything from Darcelle’s training, to her trainers, to Sebastian are so wonderfully laid out that you’ll feel as though you’re a fly on the wall watching everything happen. You’ll grin repeatedly as you delve into their inner thoughts. Of course, their nicknames: Matou and minou and the title of the story and…I find myself grinning again. I did that a lot while reading this afternoon. Couldn’t be helped.
This story is the Mr. & Mrs. Smith for the new world and I would so love to hear that Ms. Briste plans a series around them (and the staff) because that would absolutely make my night.
In case you hadn’t figured it out, I so very much recommend this story. So, what are you waiting for. Get thee to the nearest website and buy it already. So, good.
This review originally published at The Reading Alley.
“It Takes a Cat Burglar” by Cailin Briste is an adult science fiction romantic suspense story. There are breathtaking feats that made me instantly fascinated by Darcelle, who lives a remarkable double life. The gradual revelation of setting and background and the mysterious and sexy mentor, Sebastian, was a nice and somewhat unexpected twist. I love the cat references, sure to appeal to an ailurophile, and I’d be interested in learning more about the Abyssinian connection and whether Darcelle’s nickname is accurate in more ways than one. I would have liked a little more world-building, because it took a little while for me to realize this wasn’t set on a world I was familiar with, until I noticed some of the tools used and treatments available were somewhat futuristic. There are sizzling scenes but I wasn’t positive I was convinced of the attraction at first because it seemed to be a little insta-love, at least from her side since she initially didn’t even know him as anything other than a mysterious mentor. The characters aren’t as thoroughly fleshed-out as I would like, but I suspect that is because this is the introduction to the series and the author wants one to learn about the secondary characters in future stories.
This is a fun light read that introduces some engaging characters and I look forward to learning more about these folks and their goals.
A copy of this story was provided to me for review
Much to Darcelle's surprises, the secret stranger "Matou" reveals himself to her on the final task he has set for her. He has a proposition for her...30 days intense training with him for her to become his partner. The excitement of cat burglarizing it to much for her to say no, so she agrees.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was full of intrigue and kept me guessing. This is only book one and I will be keeping my eyes opened for the next book in the series.
