Publisher's Summary

Falcon: Three years ago, I arrived at the scene of an art heist to find Kingston Wilde tied to a radiator, claiming to be an innocent bystander in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was only later I learned he was actually the elusive art thief I’d been tracking for years. And I was the one who’d let him sweet-talk his way out of my grasp. Ever since, I’ve made it my mission to get my hands on him again, and this time I don’t plan on letting go.

Unfortunately, fate has other plans. A priceless artifact has gone missing, and King is the only one who can help recover it. I thought nothing could be worse than being forced to work with the egotistical SOB, but I was wrong. Falling for the charming art thief in the middle of an operation is way, way worse. 

King: The key to being a good art thief is knowing when to call it quits. After one too many close calls, I decide it is the right time to head home to Hobie, Texas, intending to hang up my lockpicks for good. 

Unfortunately, the FBI has other plans. Agent Dirk Falcon approaches me with an offer I can’t refuse: full immunity for my past crimes in exchange for helping him with one last job.

The catch? The job involves stealing from the very man who taught me everything I know. The same man who double-crossed me years ago. Pulling this off means trusting Falcon and his team, but how do I trust the sexy agent when he’s staked his career on taking me down?

Great Story

had a hard time believing one could be lured to a life of crime. The excuse that he was young and in love and that made him leave his family behind to tour the world as a criminal, I just wasn't buying it. When he turned it around fairly early on and used his talents for good, that made more sense to me and so I was able to get into the story at this point. All the characters are great in this book. Not just the 2 MCs which I both loved but the rest of the team as well. In particular I loved Mouse and hope to hear more from him in a future book. He seemed like a lot of fun. I loved that the 2 MCs were polar opposites. Falcon 10 years older who is very serious and King who was a lot more laid back and fun. They were opposites that complimented each other very nicely. As well their chenistry and electricity was so hot. I'm a sucker for that whole we hate each other but can't help wanting each other so there's always the possibility of hot hate sex trope that may turn into more when they see there's more to both of them than they think. 😀😍 Total swoon. I loved the plot. The storyline never had a single moment that didnt keep my interest right til the end. Great book. Definetley recommend it. This book can definitely be read as a standalone. A few family members are mentioned but not enough that you would need to have read the other books. I enjoyed Michaels performance as I always do. He did all the different voices and accents. Considering there was French, Irish, Russian, Hungarian and everything in between he has quite the task and think he did it well

Steal My Heart

Lucy Lennox just went and stole my heart with her story about King and Falcon. With all the Wilde boys I think that the build up between these two was only second to the original Doc and Grandpa. Two men completely wrong for each other becoming completely right for each other. It has blown me away that Lucy can create such a wide variety of characters with such vastly different personalities. This story is no different. We get to meet the illusive King Wilde, the one the family doesn't even know much about since growing up and moving away. And we meet the stoic but cuddly; Falcon. From the start we get to see the connection between these two, and Falcon's life is forever changed by King. Lucy has this talent in creating a destined feel between her characters. along with steamy intimate moments both hot and sexy, and tender and sweet, we see them grow together and fall in love. There's not much better than a Lucy Lennox written smutty scene. Lucy brings another important element to every story she writes, and every character she creates. They are not just 2D thoughts, they are three dimensional creations with depth and emotion. Unafraid of her men showing affection, love and feelings, she lets them express them how anyone would. They have passion for their professions, their hopes, their dreams, their futures. All of which has obvious background research or maybe even personal experience with how accurately or beautifully they are written/described. Reading a Lucy Lennox story is being transported to the place it is set; whether that be in Paris, Hungary or little Hobie, Texas. Michael Dean of course has this wonderful way of bringing life to every moment, every sound, every character. Michael has been with the series since the beginning and I couldn't imagine listening to any more of this series without him as the narrator. At this point he's a Marian/Wilde staple. Especially in this piece, he shows incredible talent as a voice actor bringing in four/five different accents from around the world from a southern drawl, a mid Atlantic accent, a thick Hungarian accent, to of course a lovely Irish lilt. This story had an array of different characters who played important roles in the story and every single voice was distinguishable. There had never been a point where I was unsure of who was talking. On top of it all, he has quite the talent for those steamy scenes of Lucy's and has no problem keeping the listeners engaged.

Amazing!

AMAZING!!!!! Each new book keeps getting better and better, add in Michael Pauley narration and it comes to life. King and Falcon are the perfect enemies to lovers read! King has been the dark and mysterious Wilde for a few books now so to finally see all his deep dark secrets revealed was brilliant! His personality, skills and art knowledge was the perfect mix to my nerdy heart and Pauley's tone and emotion for each scene fits perfectly. Falcon is the older and wiser grumpy agent that has to swallow his pride to ask the one person he wants to put away for help. A take control boss who isn't going to let anything stand in his way from getting what he wants. An action filled heist plot with mystery, suspense with love weaved in was fantastic, If you love Michael Pauley this is a must buy!

An art thief from Texas

I read this book when if came out and I didn’t enjoy it as much as previous books, but I still got the audio book. I admit I liked the audio more, there is something about Michael Pauley’s voice bringing the characters to life that always makes a book better. Solid 4*

A great heist story

I want to start with Michael Pauley’s narration. He always does a great job but in this book he tackled Russian, Hungarian, Irish, and French. And Texan. Always Texan. All that and he gave a solid performance. I have high expectations when I see his name and he never lets me down. I love Lucy Lennox books and this one was no exception. I haven’t seen many heist movies (although The Italian Job is one of my favorites), so I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. Well, I loved it. You have the career professional hardnosed FBI agent and the thief who have been up against each other for years. They now have to work together and neither trusts the other. What a great set-up with tons of conflict. Along with the tension are great moments of levity. At one point, King Wilde (the thief) is speaking to one of the members of the team. Ziv says to him, “I swear you could seduce a gravy boat.” King replied, “Have you ever seen the curves on those things?” I asked seductively. “And they live to serve. They’ll give you what you want. All you have to do is bend them over.” I laughed. And as with all Lucy books, there is plenty of levity mixed in with the action. Plenty of banner to help develop the characters. By the end of the book, I felt connected to the entire FBI team even as I was rooting for the Wilde man. Cameos by various Wildes including Doc, Grandpa and King’s sister MJ made the book all the more special. I enjoyed the action and adventure side of the story as well as the mushy lovey bits. In other words, just what I was looking for.

Unexpected but great!

This was a more thrilling story than the usual Wilde plots but it didn’t disappoint. It’s another Lennox masterpiece.

Over the top

This book was a little too far fetched for me. If you like Felix and The Prince level of absurdity with a bit of the “Sloane Kennedy” persona seeping in..... Maybe this will be your jam.... Myself, I just rolled my eyes, smiled, and will continue reading this series.
