Ex special-ops officer and security expert Ryan McLean is getting a much-needed vacation. In the Caribbean for his best friend's wedding, his plans include nothing more strenuous than working on his tan. But when he meets a beautiful woman in the hotel bar, their connection is immediate and intense, and they spend a passionate night together with pleasure as their only goal.
Until Ryan wakes the following morning to discover the beautiful woman has vanished, along with millions worth of jewels from the safe of the Saudi prince staying in the suite next door. Realizing he was duped, Ryan becomes determined to find the mystery woman and bring her to justice. If only he could forget how explosive their chemistry was, how her kisses drove him wild like no other woman before.
A notorious thief known to authorities only as the Dragonfly, Mariana Lora only has one more score to settle until she can retire, but the sexy-as-hell Marine she spent one explosive tropical night with is hot on her heels at every turn. She has to outwit him to stay out of jail, but fighting their magnetic attraction soon becomes a game neither one of them can resist.
When Mariana’s last job goes dangerously wrong and she needs Ryan’s help to survive, he has to decide if their game of cat and mouse is only a game, or if he can trust this beautiful thief with something no woman has ever stolen: his heart.

Reading it, I wasn’t sure i would rate it 5★.
First of all, it took my 3 days to finish it. Then, I got thinking that after 4 J.T. Geissinger books, things start to look familiar, as in same jokes, same wording and so on.
But i knew I why declared I’m this author’s biggest fan. She managed to surprise me and stop my breathing for the last 20% of the book with her “fancy lies”, that I completely forgot about everything thing else.

In this story, the heroine is a thief. Think Catherine Jeta-Jones in Entrapment.

And the hero, the most amazing alpha badass ex-Marine, southern drawl, big smile and blue eyes.
She steals and disappears, he loves her and keeps running after her. That’s it.

I cried when I read about Mariana’s life story. I laughed at their banter. I was on the edge of my seat in the end, not being able to breathe and I swooned hard in the end.
That’s it.
