She was named most appropriately.
Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered amongst criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist.
She has never failed.
A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple—a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for over twenty years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners.
Nothing is ever that easy.
Three-hundred million for a successful heist. No smart thief would turn the offer down. Cozen didn’t expect a complication like him to put a kink in her plans, though. Sargon Makri—tall, dark, gorgeous, and entirely dangerous. For her life, her heart, and for the success of the heist.
The last thing Cozen needs to be thinking about is Sargon, and how she can get him into her bed … especially when he just happens to be her mark’s bodyguard. The thrill of the job has never been more addicting to Cozen, and she will risk everything to make the heist a success.
But at what cost?
From author Bethany-Kris comes a whole new world. A North American network full of criminals battling to stay on top, and painting the streets red in war as they dabble in the game of betrayal. Malicious, cunning, forbidden, and violent—welcome to The Empires and Badlands.
COZEN MUSIC PLAYLIST
One of the best things about Bethany-Kris' books is that they always always have strong female characters. Women who are fierce and can hold there own, and yet still have that vulnerable edge that makes them open to love. Cozen is no different, though this book does have a little bit of a different angle to it than previous books I've read by this author, I was enamored by the characters from the start.
Cozen is a renowned thief to put it one way, a master at her craft and willing to do anything to get the job done in the time frame agreed upon. Taking on one more heist, Cozen doesn't expect any complications, but she also didn't expect Sargon or the way she's drawn to him.
Cozen brings to us a new world of powerful and dangerous people, a world unlike those usually found in this author's works, and yet it was just as striking. I was hooked from the start, curious to see where things would lead and how it would all play out. This story delivers twists and surprises as expected, danger and suspense, and characters that have the ability to tug on your heart strings while also making you question their behaviors sometimes. There's just enough action to keep you on edge and bring the story together.
Bethany-Kris has done a superb job of introducing this new world within the pages of this book and I'm looking forward to what she delivers next.
