ARC Review: SHIMMY BANG SPARKLE by Nicola Rendell

May 22, 2018

Shimmy Bang Sparkle by Nicola Rendell
To catch a thief…or fall for one?

All Nick Norton wants is to stay on the straight and narrow…and never get caught stealing again. Then he lays eyes on her: Stella Peretti—100 percent sexy and absolutely irresistible. Especially when he sees her smooth moves lifting a two-karat diamond. Nick realizes he’s found the sparkling woman of his dreams—one so perfect for him it’s almost criminal.

The Shimmy Shimmy Bangs are master jewel thieves who are planning the heist of the century. And Shimmy leader, Stella, isn’t about to let anyone—even if he is a hunky, tatted-up studmuffin—get in her way. But when two of her girls are put out of commission, Stella realizes that Nick isn’t just a red-hot distraction. He might be the answer to her pilfering prayers.

Now, Nick and Stella are putting everything on the line for one last job. But when two thieves have this much chemistry, it’s only a matter of time before somebody’s heart gets stolen.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nick was fresh out of prison and looking forward to starting over and living his life well. Then he catches a glimpse of heaven through the window of a jewelry store. He can’t look away. And thoughts of moving forward without her are no longer possible. He walks into that store and takes in the full picture that is Stella. She’s not only physically gorgeous, but she had a personality to match. Everything about her sang to him. Every part of her called to him. And when he sees her pull off a sleight of hand befitting a pro, he knows that he’s not letting her go. Who makes the perfect match for a jewel thief? Another jewel thief.

I’ve read quite a few books by Nicola Rendell, but this was by far my favorite of the bunch. It was fresh, unique, and increasingly entertaining as the story progressed. I loved the plot, its characters, and the way this author played on my emotions. The dynamic between Nick and Stella was not only incredibly hot, it was sweet, fun, and found a way to lift my spirits. I had an absolute blast reading about these two and I’m pretty sad to see them go. However, with a fantastic supporting cast of characters, such as Ruth and Roxie, I’m holding out hope that I’ll see them again.
