Don't Look Down (Samantha Jellicoe #2)
The heat is on in Palm Beach-and Rick and Samantha are sizzling.
Samantha Jellicoe is no ordinary thief. At least, not anymore. She promised her significant other, British billionaire Rick Addison, that she'd retire from her life of crime. So no more midnight break-ins . . . no more scaling estate walls . . . no more dangling from the ceiling. From here on in, it's intim...more
This one picks up three months after Flirting With Danger left off, and Sam and Rick are still striking sparks off each other and setting their sheets on fire. Sam is trying hard to stay on the straight and narrow and Rick is attempting to run his conglomerate while Sam is sleeping, it seems.
I absolutely love these two -- their banter is delicious:
"You're a good guy, Rick."...more
He smiled. "I keep telling you
As the second in the Samantha Jellicoe series, this one is just as fast paced and fun as the first and I actually enjoyed the romance aspect even more. It was fun to have an already established relationship that is busy working out the "new couple" rough spots. That's a nice change and Enoch keeps it quick, hot and unpredictable. Sam does get a little annoying with her hard-nosed stubbornness but it is understandable considering the sheer strength of personality that comes with a driven b ...more
I am skipping ahead to A Touch of Minx, because I read the blurb on Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and it didn't appeal. These books se ...more
It's a great plan on paper, but it just goes to fig ...more
I love Samantha. Her sense of freedom, her high spirited nature, her loyalty all of it is so intriguing. I can't get over it! As for Rick he is great. But honestly most of the time I am so involved in enjoying Sam's personality that I can't find enough ...more
Samantha is a bit childish and I found myself annoyed with her at times, as well as with the relationship drama that she causes, but Rick makes up for her and doesn't let her get away with it.
A robbery and murder investigation, an ex back in town causing trouble and the relationship drama all make this book an interesting one, ...more
Okay, these Samantha Jellicoe books are my new cozy fun yummy reads that I RAVISH. I've read the first two, and I'm saving the rest for when I really really need something wonderful and reliable. I think there are only FOUR! SOB. Samatha is a cat burgler, she meets her hero robbing his art collection, and just, wow, this series is insanely delightful.
This has the same wonderfulness factor of those early Evanovich/Stephanie Plum ...more
However, horrible jarring time zone mistake at the very start nearly derailed the whole thing. The male lead contacts his New York office first thing in the UK business day. Because they are open at 2am??? Anyone who has ...more
She and Rick have been divorced for 3 years! Everyone acts like it was a week ago! Jesus! I get that being cheated on will always hurt. I get it. I really do. I also get that there's alimony and yada yada legal stuff. But the hurt from the cheating wasn't really even the focus of her appearances, not really. She was such ...more
In this book. The couple is still combustible when together and both sacrificing. Rick has to deal with his lawyer Tom -who is so annoying- but a loyal nice guy, the innuendos about Sam and her thieving, and his ex wife- Patricia the Beeyatch. Sam has given up her ability to walk among people invisibly, blend in, do ...more
Rispetto al primo della serie ho trovato un notevole passo in avanti in questo volume, che mi è piaciuto molto di più! *ç* La parte suspance in realtà mi è sembrata un po' "debole" ma sopratutto lenta, il colpevole non era del tutto scontato ma neanche così difficile da intuire, in generale comunque l'autrice è riuscita a creare un ca ...more
Nein, das war jetzt nicht wörtlich gemeint sondern das ist der deutsche Titel des Buches. Es handelt sich hier um den zweiten Band in der Reihe um die Diebin Samantha Jellicoe und ihren Freund, den Multimillionär Richard Addison. Band 2 spielt drei Monate später und - oh Wunder - Sam und Rick sind noch immer ein Paar. Samantha versucht sich jetzt mit einem legalen Job und ist dabei in Palm Springs ein Sicherheitsunternehmen zu gründen. Leider wird ihr erster Kunde einen Tag ...more
Her first client of her newly-established security company (hey, if she can get through almost every security system ever invented, she should be really good at creating them, right?) ends up dead, and though she's not held ...more
Y sigo fascinada con Sam y Rick: diversión, acción, sensualidad, .......
La mezcla resultante entre una ladrona de guante blanco y un estirado inglés (jajajaajajajjaajajaj) es una auténtica delicia literaria.

“So are you, if you get the newsletter.”
Sam smiled. She couldn’t help it, even when the volume of camera flashes increased in response. “That’s right. Ooh, Mr. Addison, you’re so hot, sign my tit, will you?”
He leaned over, kissing her ear. “I am going to fuck you all night,” he whispered.
Shivers went all the way down her spine. “I must have the deluxe fan club membership.”
“Oh, that you do, Samantha. That you do.”
Richard followed her, a dozen denials and rebuttals fighting for position. “She does not.”
“Ooh, good retort. Prove it.”
“She needs someone to cosign her paperwork, and I’m the only one she could think of to do it. I spend time here. Hence, Palm Beach.”
“And,” he cut in, warming to the argument, “and, the Society here is the type she feels comfortable with, anyway. A good dozen of her Patty’s Pack friends have winter homes here. I can’t see her moving to Dirt, Nebraska. Can you?”
Samantha dove into the Bentley that waited at the curb and actually hesitated a moment before she unlocked the passenger door for him. “No, but I can see her in Paris or Venice or Milan or New York,” she retorted. “But like you said, you’re here. And hey, Mr. Denial, if she has her Patty’s Pack friends in town, why is it again you’re being recruited to cosign?”
Richard barely had time to close his door before she peeled away from the curb. “You’re jealous,” he announced.
“You’re an asshole”
