Raised by her father to be a grifter, Ellie Phillips needs to get away from the hustling life and her mobbed-up boss. The map she just stole is her key to one last big score.

I loved the prequel (Heist) but was a little disappointed when Ellie's father was killed before the start of this book. I was expecting a smoother con and more of a team effort. Much to my surprise, Ellie has struck out on her own with backup from her friend/brother Jimmy, and is working for one of the biggest and nastiest men in the business. While on a recovery mission for him, she accidentally breaks the artifact she is supposed to be stealing. When she discovers a treasure map hidden inside ...more

I loved, and disliked this book in many different ways. To be concise (and a bit awkward) this book was like Hamburger Helper in many ways. It was meaty, hearty, and rich but not exactly the finest of meals. It's satisfying in its somewhat generic guilty pleasure way, but you've had way better foods, and you'll have way better again. Inferior, yet not unsatisfactory, but still satisfying. Inferior: many cliché aspects, and overexplicated areas. Satisfactory: good (not great) characters and langu ...more

Ellie and Jacob go together like oil and water. Truth be told , they get on each other's last nerve. And yet, with all that tension, they fall in love. They are both after the same thing, a fabulous heart shaped diamond. They don't know that their fathers had teamed to find it and she doesn't know that Jacob blames her father for his father's disappearance. Throw in a big mob boss gunning for it, and wanting her dead, and you have the makings for a real treat. Enjoy this book, I know I did. I re ...more

"Gives you a warm feeling"

Good story line, plenty of action and the main characters were an interesting match in the romance department. The only thing that held me back from awarding a rare fifth star was that maybe there were a couple too many 'spats' when we KNEW the sparks were eventually going to fly. This prolonged the wait unnecessarily. Excellent for that holiday in the sun.

A fun adventure full of twists and turns and a romance that will keep you hooked, Hustle is a book that will appeal to the treasure seeker in you. Ellie is a heroine to root for and I loved reading about the mysteries that she and Jacob uncovered. If you like adventure romance with a hint of mystery and plenty of funny moments, this book is for you!

Lots of silliness and an unbelievable bad~guy, but I really enjoyed this.
The ending was a bit too quick and tidy for my liking. Almost as though the author had decided that she was only going to write a certain amount of words and would wrap it all up as quickly as possible once she hit them.

Okay read

I must admit that I didn't finish this book. The love story was too dramatic and over the top for my liking. Storyline itself is okay and kept me going for a while. If you like cliche love stories you might enjoy it.

Characters in books just don't say and do what the reader tells them to do.
