One last heist.

It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a nightmare of betrayal.

Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.

~ 3.5 stars ~

This was an okay book.

I really liked all the characters! Not only the MCs, Mack and Toshi, but also Charlie, Toshiro's autistic twin sister, Dom, her girlfriend, and Jude. Mack and Toshi's relationship is strong and unwavering even after having been together since their teenage years and the bond between all five friends is beautiful. If you are a fan of banter, you'll enjoy the MCs and their friendly bickering.

Sadly, though, the story had a thrown-together feel to it and scenes tha

A Joyfully Jay review.

2.5 stars

This is a difficult review to write since this book had a haphazard and thrown together feel to me. The basics are there, but the delivery and the structure of the story really did not work for me. The start had potential as Mack and Toshiro have a great dynamic. They are so in love with each other, never tire of each other, and after years still can’t keep their hands off of each other. This was a whole lot of fun until it just wasn’t anymore.

The book is slow and

This is one of the few times where I read the blurb at the beginning of the book. It had me thinking “Mission Impossible” – television series not the movies. No offense to Tom Cruise but I had a few man crushes back in the day. Or even “The Avengers” – again the series, loved Mrs. Peel and Mr. Steed.

Toshiro “Toshi” Ueda-Easton seems to like stating the obvious where his husband is concerned. Gregor “Mack” Ueda-Easton seems to be a modern day Robin Hood. I hadn’t even finished the first chapter a

Mack and Toshiro are married thieves. Not bad guys. They prefer to think of themselves as Robin Hood’s. Stealing things from thieves to return to their proper owners. If along the way they keep a little for themselves that's as it should be.

The latest heist includes their merry band of family and friends. Mack is losing his sight, Toshiro’s sister is autistic, their friend Jude is in a wheel chair. Throw in a cop who kind of turns a blind eye to their escapades. A no good ex partner who might b

One Last Heist has plenty going on all through the story. There’s intrigue and suspense peppered by Mack and Toshiro’s intimate encounters, and a cast of characters that are all quite unique in their own ways.

I loved the fact that Mack and Toshiro had been together for so long and were so dedicated to each other every step of the way. Their devotion to each other is obvious, their bond unbreakable—even when Mack is being a bit (or more than a bit) stubborn. Toshiro’s autistic sister Charlie brin

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is a mixture of a bit of romance, a lot of suspense, slivers of angst, and tons of fun. The story is moving along at a very fast speed. It made me turn the pages effortlessly, but at the same time, I had some trouble following the story. There is a lot of things going on, lots of action, but not always fully explained. It didn’t diminish my pleasure of reading this book in the slightest, though.
It reminded me of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, and women

I am always up for another book by Dahlia. I love her books. While this one wasn’t one of my favorites. It was still a great book. It is a M/M book so if that isn’t your thing be warned. Mack, his husband Tosh, Tosh’s twin, and her wife all do one last heist. It should be easy. But maybe it was just a little too easy if you know what I mean. They don’t just steal to steal. They steal things that were stolen from their rightful owner and anonymously return them. Mack whole world is about to get t ...more

I recieved a complimentary copy of One Last Heist for an honest review through the Crazy Cajun Book Addicts.

One Last Heist is a rather passionate read Toshi and Mack's love for each other really shines through, they have a lot of passion and wit in their partnership, even with Mack's deteriorating degenerative eye condition and blindness is inevitable Toshi is 100% supportive.

When they have an important heist to do the team pull together, but it goes horribly wrong and the duo are left fighting

This is author is new to me and I love her fast-paced writing style. The book was a real page turner for me. Married couple, Mack and Toshiro are thieves with a conscience. Mack’s dad read him books about pirates and Robin Hood growing up so he fashioned his band of merry men and women like Robin Hood. You couldn’t put a better mismatched crew together than Mack and Toshiro do- their’s Toshiro’s autistic sister and her wife and Jude who was in a wheelchair from the last heist that got out of ha ...more

Dahlia Donovan is one of my favorite authors and she has done it again. One Last Heist is suspenseful, intriguing, and chock full of action and love. This story is more than the romance and emotion that I've come to expect and love from this author. The plot and suspense pull you in and will keep you wanting to turn page after page. Trust me when I say that you are going to want to pick up this 4.5 star read for yourself.

Mack and Toshiro light up the pages with their banter, chemistry and love! This book just has all the feels for me! A group of friends, dedicated lovers, good guys and bad guys and a mystery that will keep you engaged.

I just loved how creative, hot and steamy Mack and Toshiro were. This book also pulled at my heart as they dealt with some real world sadness and challenges. The writing was great and the characters were so beautifully drawn that you will be looking for them in your dreams. Just a

A very fun romp with a healthy dose of fear of being killed by the bad guys thrown in. Also with some pretty hot sex scenes -- nice bonus! Good story, well written, but somehow also this isn't a heavy read, despite the inclusion of brushes with death, kidnapping, a parent in prison, and a rival/former colleague trying to frame and/or kill the MCs and their family/gang. Fun but a little on the frivolous side. ...more

I loved this book. The Banter between Tosh and Mack was hilarious. How everybody in the "family" had their own parts to make everything work. Even though they were theifs I felt myself rooting for them. And in the end how their lives were really connected. I want more of Tosh and Mack. I want to see how they deal with Mack's health. I know they would find a way around it. ...more

An impressively amusing tale for the subject matter. Beautifully crafted while still managing to delve into the nuances of a long-term marriage where one half is going blind, the story is very difficult to put down. The characters are believable despite the narrative falling back on very British colloquiums more than a few times, painted with vivid strokes to render a rich backdrop of secondary characters. Depth is not hard to come by in this story, which I believe to be Donovan's best so far. T ...more

As a first time M/M romance reader, I was impressed.
This heist doesn't go as planned. I won't give too much away because it's a ride that kept me flipping pages. Let's just say, you don't see the ending coming.
I adore the give and take of these characters. Tosh and Mack were made for each other in more ways than one. Their backstories are incredible and flow perfectly into the present day story. I also fell for Dom and Charlie. Those two are adorable, sass and all. Overall, these characters ha

Dude. This was one of the funniest books I have ever read. I think this is the first I've read of this author. Honestly, I can't be 100% because I read so much lol. Yikes. But this book was so good. The relationship and chemistry between the two MCs is just the best. Even with being married. It’s funny, snarky yet loving, and definitely off the charts hot. I laughed so hard every time Toshiro would snark or comment at Mack in another language. Oh man, it's so funny. It's so good, too, because it ...more

This review is very tricky to write. There are a tremendous amount of interesting pieces and parts to this story that were wonderful, but the way they pieced together overall just didn’t work for me.

Gregor ‘Mack’ Ueda-Easton and Toshiro Ueda-Easton are a happily married, long-term couple (as in elementary school long-term) who have really nifty front jobs. Mack is a philanthropist and Toshiro is a traveling writer, while secretly they are running a Robin Hood-esque business behind the scenes

This was intriguing, fascinating and alluring. Mack and Toshi have a relationship that just is great. They are perfect for one another. Very supportive and loving to one another. Mack is losing his sight and is scared and Toshi is trying to get him to open up and go to the doctor. It isn’t until they are neck deep in danger that they have a honest talk about Mack’s condition.

The heist was supposed to be simple. But it turns into anything but as so many secrets and betrayals occur. We see greed a

One Last Heist has a host of new characters, and our main couple are already married, which made for a lovely change. They both have jobs by day, but are thieves by night. Mack has a list of rules that he works to, helping to ensure he only robs from those who deserve it. And yes, there are plenty of Robin Hood references guaranteed to make you smile. They get caught up in a situation that quickly takes them from their 'normal' into something far more dangerous that could change their lives fore ...more

3.5. I really enjoyed this one. It follows an established couple, we don't know their precise ages but they are in their 30s and have been together since high school. They are very much in love throughout so the tension is external. They were very cute and childish but in a good way (food fights and other banter) and steamy. There was a heist but that's not really the main storyline, weird stuff were happening to them and they were trying to figure out why/what/who. It kept my interest but I fel ...more

Well, this was certainly action packed. There was lots going on and it wasn't clear who could be trusted, adding to the tension of this read.

As M/M reads go, Dahlia Donovan is one of my go to authors. I did enjoy this but not as much as others she has written. It felt like it was trying too hard, with its very diverse set of characters and its non stop, action packed plot. The was jam packed, which I didn't feel gave me or the characters chance to deal with events and the undercurrent issues.

One Last Heist is an entertaining read that for me, is loosely reminiscent of the TV show, Leverage. We have a group of thieves that rob from the robbers, getting stolen items back where they belong while taking a bit for themselves along the way. The romance here is an established one, so we don't get all the angst associated with new love. What we do get are two terrific characters who have known each other for most of their lives and are utterly devoted to each other. That devotion also comes ...more

This story just seemed to grab me right from the start. I don't know if it was the unique combination of bad guys/good guys, the wide variety of issues our main characters were dealing with (encroaching blindness, autism, other physical limitations, loss, estrangement, betrayal, etc.), or the cohesiveness of the main group in facing major challenges that drew me in the most. I definitely liked all the MCs, as well as the way they know each other and have learned how to live and communicate with ...more

I did enjoy this, I liked the lightly snarky/bantering relationship that Mack And Toshi have, as befitting guys that have been together a long time.
The plot is a bit confusing at the start because there is obviously a lot of history to their merry band, but this is a standalone (well, I looked a couple of times and didn’t find any others) so at times it felt like I was dumped in the middle of something.
Definitely felt it should be in a series and I would read about them again.

3.5 stars Different but entertaining

I was kind of torn over my rating because I had a hard time figuring this out. It often felt like I should have read another book first, as past events were discussed and referenced in current activities without complete context. There were also distracting scenes and events that had no relevance or purpose in moving the plot forward. Eventually things mostly came together. Toshi and Mack/Gregor were good characters and an established couple, not a traditiona

As new reader to Ms. Donovan, I thought this book was a great read. She kept my interest throughout the book with the engaging characters of Gregor ‘Mack’ Ueda-Easton and Toshiro Ueda-Easton and their group of friends. Lots of action, suspenseful, mystery and bits of romance follow these modern day thieves into what will be their one last heist. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and looking forward to reading more by Ms. Donovan.

Pleasantly surprised. I liked the story line, and the characters.
A little rough, but enjoyable.
Honestly I was expecting it to be a cookie cutter story, but it wasn't.
I like the ideas, and I'll be checking out the author again.
