Blog Tour: To Trust a Thief by Michelle McLean - Review


  Tour Schedule

Minuette Sinclair's parents are in trouble and her fake fiancé is too. A legendary lost necklace might be their salvation, and Min is determined to find it and use it to buy her family and fiancé out of their misfortunes.

Master thief Bryant Westley is also looking for the fabled necklace. He knows Min’s got information he can use so he poses as her dance instructor and tries to seduce it from her. What he doesn’t count on are his feelings for her. He offers to partner up in the search – even though she is a distraction he can’t afford.

Things become more complicated when Min realizes that her convenient engagement means more to her fake fiancé than her and that she’s fallen in love with Bryant. Bryant realizes that he can’t double cross the young lady he’s come to love. Can they find the necklace together and admit their love before it’s too late?

The Book

About Michelle:

If she's not editing, reading or chasing her kids around, she can usually be found in a quiet corner working on her next book. Michelle resides in PA with her husband and two young children, an insanely hyper dog, and two very spoiled cats.

First off I'd like to thank Michelle McLean and Entangled Publishing for letting me read and review this book and for letting me host a stop on the tour! 
Even though this is my first time reviewing a romance novel for a blog/book tour I'm still going to start with the front cover - because I like it.
This cover is pretty believable. Minuette and Bryant were awesome characters and the models on the front are posing in a way that I think is true to the characters. Bryant is protective of Min and Min is succumbing to Bryant's amazing-ness but doesn't want to. 

I give this book 4 "stars." It's got a believable plot and conflict (which, for some reason, is normally  missing in a romance novel) and I adore Min. Most novels have heroines that just go with the flow and take everything sitting down. Min is a gal that chooses her own future and even got a few cracked ribs in the process - I love Min. 
Bryant is the typical hot male lead in a romance novel: stubborn, protective, cocky. I adore him for it. If he were any different the novel wouldn't have played out well at all. 

"To Trust a Thief" is a great book, and even though there are some steamy kissing scenes there isn't a big "love" scene. So, people who don't want all the hanky panky are sure to love this book. 

Again, thanks to Michelle and Entangled for letting me read!
