While I will own I’m definitely biased, The Con Artist Dates was a quick, fun read and great “teaser”! It left me anxious to read The Scam List to find out what happens to Boone and Darby. I always appreciate strong female characters, especially in young adult novels and stories, and Darby is definitely that!

Excellent appetizer before The Scam List comes out. The characters pop and the cons keep you guessing. I can’t wait to spend time with these characters again.

That was cute and fun! I loved the show Sneaky Pete so I was excited to read this. It's a short story prequel to The Scam List, which I plan to read next. Only three chapters in this one, but each one is a short story on its own.

Boone and Darby came to life from the beginning and I could picture each situation they were in with perfect clarity. They are both so good at the con you never know what to believe. I quickly learned to never give up on the pair even when their plan seems to be foiled.

This is a collection of three short stories that are prequels to The Scam List. The YA stories are well-written and entertaining while giving information for the novel. I enjoyed reading all three and they created the desire to discover what happens next in the lives of the two young protagonists.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this ebook from the author and this is my honest and freely given opinion.

It was so good to read more Boone. I wish I read this before The Scam List because it was just a really nice way to lead into the story and get a deeper sense of Darby and Boone as a couple. The writing and the humour was still impeccable as ever! Kurt Dinan has shot up into my top rankings for favourite author easily. Really really recommend.

The characters were instantly likeable. The scams were really well-conceived and entertaining. I am definitely looking forward to The Scam List!

I was sent this book to review and unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped I would. It was a decent prequel but it didn’t leave me wanting to know more about the characters therefore whilst I thought the stories were good, I’m in no hurt to pick up The Scam List.
