Review: Thieves Like Us by Starr Ambrose

Her ex stole the jewels, but this bad boy just stole her heart. . . . 

After ditching the ruthless Banner Westfield, aka “the world’s worst husband,” sexy and fiercely guarded Janet Aims thinks the least she deserves for surviving attempted murder is a chance to cash in on her losses. Step one is hocking the wedding ring and ridiculously tacky necklace given to her by her conniving ex. 

But just when Janet thinks she’s buried the past, the police claim that the necklace is part of the stolen Pellinni Jewel collection. Which means that even prison can’t stop Banner from dumping her smack in the middle of his evil schemes again. 

With Colombian gangsters and jewel thieves hot on her trail, Janet has no choice but to turn to smoldering ex-con Rocky Hernandez, the one man who can make her fragile heart pound. Partnering up with a certified hottie who knows the ins and outs of Detroit’s seedy underbelly as well as he does a woman’s body might have its perks if Janet’s life—and her heart—weren’t on the line. . . .
From Barnes & Noble

My heart went out to Janet right away.  I actually had an ex who I later found out was a thief, so I was able to connect with her.  I love strong women characters who don't let one bad relationship ruin their ability to love again.  Overall, this was a great romance and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has been wronged.

  1. This sounds really good. I had an ex, who I think back, and say was I insane at the time?

  2. Have an x and looking back don't know why I did not take off with the kids. Back then there was no help for single mothers as there is now.
    I would like to read about this strong woman.
