Amazon | Nook | Kobo | Apple | Google

From USA Today Bestselling Author Blair Babylon comes an explosive thriller about a small-time con artist in Atlantic City who tries to scam an undercover MI6 spy, and soon the Philly Mafia is chasing both of them.

You can’t con an honest man, but I’d never met one of those.

Until I met Micah Shine.

I come from a long line of con artists. Grifters, if you will. Card cheats and honey traps and catfishers. My mother married wealthy men who died suddenly, and Dad counted cards at blackjack in Atlantic City until the Mafia offed him.

Like father, like daughter.

I was working marks in A.C. when I met Micah Shine, who seemed as if he might be that mythical beast, an honest man. I threw out the bait, and he didn’t bite.

Micah was tall, ripped, rich, and hot, and when he took off his sunglasses, his eyes were the green-flecked silver of opals.

That night, he seemed sober, conscientious, and kind, scrupulous in his honesty, and a freaking magician in bed.

That should have been my clue. Magicians are just another kind of con artist, but it didn’t register. I was smitten until it all fell apart.

I should’ve known.

Because I should have realized that if I wasn’t the con artist that night, I was the mark.

When Micah Shine showed up again the next weekend, I should have left him alone and walked away. But game recognizes game, so I sat down beside him at the poker table.

He offered to cut me in on the biggest con I’d ever heard of.

And that’s when I fell in love.

But that didn’t mean I was a sucker.

Including your favorite tropes:

  • Romantic suspense thriller
  • Enemies to lovers
  • Mistaken identity
  • Con men
  • Le Rosey men (Blair's billionaire boarding school)

Micah is the next bad boy to fall and it's time to repay his debt. 

Kylie is the perfect female/con to partner with but...

How well can these two con artists work? I mean he did con her out of money that was needed. For Kylie, the cons are a necessity, for Micah?

The chemistry between these two is off the charts and I suppose it's a good thing Arthur is there. I love that past characters show up in this author's books! A big plus for me. And the drama was off the charts. 

We will have to wait though for this story to play out in the next book can't wait!
