Chasing Icon, the world’s most notorious art thief, was the most seductive thrill of art investigator Zara Leighton’s career…until the clues led her to the man who holds command of her body and heart, Tobias Wilder, a billionaire with charisma to spare. Her duty to capture him is complicated by the intensity of their passion. Her will to end their connection is tinted with red-hot need to never let him go. Tobias’s heists are about more than money or ego, but no one—not even Zara—can guess at his true motivation. But how can he pursue his deepest calling when it pits him against Zara, the love of his life?
Kat's rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book 2 of this series had our intrepid Art investigator Zara Leighton falling down the rabbit hole of lust and attraction as Tobias has swept her off her feet, but the more she gets to know about Tobias, the more clues to who ICON is start to point to Tobias, and Zara is now facing the ultimate dilemma. Zara has always ‘done the right thing’ her new job is on the line, and when a painting appears that cast’s doubt on her father and therefore her integrity, Tobias is there to help… Will Zara give into her heart or listen to her head?
The Author takes you on a tumultuous journey into the art world where the Mega rich will do anything to own a priceless piece of art.
We learn more about why ICON is selective in his targets, and I couldn’t help but route for him, and hoped that Zara would listen to her heart. I was ‘googling ‘ pictures as they were described in the book, as the descriptive writing intrigued me to actually see if I could see what Zara saw in each painting. It was fun, and that’s the one benefit of an e-book… I know I could just type it into a search engine if I was reading a paperback… but I am lazy sometimes and it’s just a click of a finger on my kindle!
There is more action in this book, and the storyline keeps you glued to the pages, I dived into book 3 as soon as I finished.
I really enjoyed the book and I think I will miss these characters when I have finished.
*** This review is my honest opinion, I have not received any compensation for reviewing it, it's just my thoughts after reading and I hope you found my thoughts useful***
