MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 5 Stars!
A rising star in one of London's top art investigation firms, Zara Leighton's talent for seeing deep into paintings is in her blood. She's chosen to help track down Icon, an enigmatic international art thief whose heists are methodical, daring, baffling. To Zara the case is maddening—bordering on an obsession.
She finds distraction in the chiseled form of top-shelf client Tobias Wilder, a magnetic American billionaire who demands her expertise, her discretion—and her secrecy. Wilder doesn't ask questions. He gives orders. His gaze alone ignites her deepest fantasies. And his touch…
The sudden whirl of exclusive exhibitions and decadent parties that Wilder introduces her to is a potent aphrodisiac. But surrender soon becomes tinged with suspicion. Is Zara's tryst with Wilder the real thing…or just a convincing forgery?
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received this eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
5+ Iconic Stars!
Intriguing, thrilling and deeply enjoyable. A sensational first book in a highly anticipated new trilogy!
Beautifully crafted with eloquent writing and riveting storytelling, this book is going to the top of my reread pile! I have NEVER been disappointed in this author's work. She has an extraordinary knack for writing influential characters and passionate love stories that sizzle as well as deliver those wonderful “feels” that will flat out amaze you. This book is no different. With expressive writing and an impassioned narrative, I was captivated, consumed and thoroughly engaged from the first page to the very last. I didn’t want this one to end!!
Zara Leighton is newly employed at Huntly Pierre, London’s most reputable investigative art firm, as a forensic art specialist. Surrounding herself with her first and most impassioned love, she’s excited to toil her days debunking or validating remarkable works of art, fulfilling a lifelong dream and connecting to a personal part of her past she’s recently lost. She has suffered incredible tragedy in her life and trusting comes with its fair share of issues. Excited to start her career, her first day on the job is hit with excitement and temptation as the mysterious Tobias Wilder, a man she briefly met the night before and a man whose intensity and beauty instantly drew her to him, requests her participation on authenticating a confidential piece of art he’s interested in.
Tobias is a billionaire, philanthropist and he’s notorious for his exclusivity. He’s a complete mystery with his own trust issues. Needing a painting validated, he takes Zara on the adventure of a lifetime that quickly turns to sensual delight as they find more than the beauty of art to tempt them. Danger, mystery and intrigue surround them, all the while a string of high valued art thefts has the attention of the Huntly Pierre team, including Zara, who grows more suspicious every day of the man she’s fast falling for.
Zara was clever, alluring and a perfect heroine. She was smart, witty, sensual and open to new adventures. She was instantly caught up in Tobias’s hypnotic appeal, which produced exquisite chemistry and delicious erotic moments.
Tobias ... yum! It has to be said, he was just too enticing for words! I adore the way this author creates her male leads. They are always so mesmeric and seductive. Tobias was definitely intense, daring and provocative and I couldn’t blame Zara for falling hard and fast for him. And he was more than good looks and sexiness, too. He was closed off which only added to his mystery, but he was also affectionate, generous and he loved to live life, experiencing the finer things but also didn’t mind digging around in the dirt for benefit. He seems dark and utterly unattainable, but the more Zara gets to know him, the more reachable he becomes ... and the more questions arise. I loved that I couldn’t fully figure him out. He was so complex and you can’t help but crave to know more about this man.
The Wrap Up:
Reading a Vanessa Fewings book is always like receiving the most prestigious of gifts. I come out of it empowered, inspired and invigorated. And I always want more! When I got to the end of this book, I screamed out “NOOO!”, because I simply HAD to have more! If you one-click anything this year, it has to be The Chase!
