I enjoyed this second book in the Stolen Hearts series better than the first one. If you haven't read Cocky Thief yet, I strongly suggest reading it before this one because you'll have a better understanding of character relationships and situations that are referenced in this story. This book picks up a few weeks after the last book ends, and find our heroine, Melody, is still trying to face life after a traumatic event in the last book (the author tells you up front, but I don't want to spoil anything). As the title alludes, Melody is an former con-woman, along with her sisters and mom.
She got caught up in one last con in the last book, and she's seeking revenge on the people who hurt her family.
The only lead she has is the "bad guy" who let her get away, but she doesn't even know his name. She eventually devises a plan, finds Adam, and offers him a deal if he helps her track down the person so she can exact her revenge. Melody doesn't totally trust that Adam might not turn on her, and Adam doesn't totally trust that Melody could kill him since he was one of the bad guys that had previously held her captive. In spite of their trust issues, both feel a strong attraction to one another, yet, because of the trust issues, they continue to fight growing feelings.
The author was able to do a better job with character development in this story as there weren't as many peripheral characters surrounding our Hero and heroine. With that said, more puzzle pieces on the mystery that began in the first book, slide into place. There are still unexplained character relationships from the first story, that we glimpse in this one, but have yet to be totally explained, which is why I gave this story 4 stars. I really enjoyed the cat and mouse relationship of Melody and Adam, and felt more satisfied at the end of this book than the first.
