    What can I say about this book Well, it was great I loved it It was like an adventure and mystery and romance tied into one Lauren Blakely is like a really good glass of wine from a really great winery She knows what she is doing and what she does is ON POINT Let me warn you that this DOES have a cliffhanger I hate it when I m not 100% sure and I go in not knowing that I m not one to go into a series unless all the books have been to be released OR unless the release dates are close together BUT You re in luck Because they TOTALLY ARE So, in this story, we have all around badass, scuba goddess Steph Anderson She owns a dive tour business that runs out of the islands and recently has suffered some blows in her personal life Her most recent ex tried to demolish her company and her mother and her stepfather recently got a very nasty divorce Jake Harlowe is in the recovery business he obtains items that have been stolen That can vary in meaning, but most recently he has taken the job of investigating Steph s stepfather to see if he is up to any nefarious dealings with his new fiance Steph s mother actually wants her to do the same thing A chance encounter in a bar has them crossing paths and sparks fly Because it s called The Sapphire Affair, it can t NOT involve jewels, right It totally does What a way to a girls heart I can just picture these gorgeous jewels I LOVED these characters They are both fiesty and have depth in their own way I love that they are both after the same cause the truth I also like how it isn t instalove Instalust Sure, but they put that aside for the common goal for a time I would give this book 4.75 stars It was really entertaining The added elements of the mystery and adventure really added to the budding romance and I cannot start book 2 The Sapphire Heist I cannot wait to see what is in store for these characters

    It s not often that I sit and read an entire book in one sitting but, from the moment I started The Sapphire Affair by Lauren Blakely, I refused to put down the book until I finished Not only does this book have a smoking hot romance as per usual with Lauren Blakely , but the narrative is an action packed thrill ride, guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping There s danger There s mystery There s suspense Did I mention the smoking hot romance The Sapphire Affair is a high stakes, adventure filled romance that starts with a bang and keeps you on your toes until the very last sentence.With a bounty hunter for a hero and an adventurer for a heroine seriously, that s her job , it s not surprising that The Sapphire Affair is Lauren Blakely s most exhilarating story to date We first meet protagonist, Jake Harlowe, in the midst of his job as a recovery specialist a job that requires careful planning, a bit of luck, and lot of ingenuity Juggling his hazardous job with acting as a substitute parent for his younger siblings doesn t leave Jake much time to form romantic connections, yet his one rule is to keep his professional and romantic lives separate It s therefore fortuitous that he has no idea that the woman who catches his eye on his latest job happens to be the stepdaughter of his target When Jake meets Steph Anderson, she s simply a gorgeous woman in a bar with whom he shares flirtatious banter and incredibly potent chemistry.When Steph inevitably becomes entangled in Jake s investigation, professional and personal lines are blurred, and the sexual tension between them escalates to uncontrollable proportions Their romance is a temptation, a teasing push and pull that s as riveting as the case they re attempting to unravel As this novel can attest, no one writes a love scene quite like Lauren Blakely It s not just sex between her characters or foreplay, as it may be , it s a physical and emotional intimacy one that s the result of all consuming kisses, a worshipping of bodies, and a desire for the characters to memorize each other through taste, touch, and feel Jake and Steph s romance may be a slow burn, but the buildup is just as satisfying as the payoff.As part one of a two part series, The Sapphire Affair is designed to whet your appetite and entice you to return for While I feel as though I ve been thoroughly acquainted with Jake and Steph, this book only scratches the surface of their budding romance and of their ongoing investigation By the end of the book, I was left with an impatient need to fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle, which is admittedly part of the fun After finishing The Sapphire Affair, I can guarantee you ll be dying to delve right into The Sapphire Heist complimentary copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review

    Sex, humor, and suspense is the name of the game in the first installment of the new Jewel Series by Lauren Blakely When I found out that Lauren was releasing a new series this summer, I was overwhelmed with joy She has a trademark style of romance that always makes me giddy in anticipation every time I m about to start one of her books A romance penned by Lauren Blakely NEVER disappoints The Sapphire Affair got my motor running from the very beginning I was enticed and entertained the whole way through Jake and Steph s journey have just begun and I am a complete goner for this series It than satisfied the suspenseful romance junkie in me and made my heart race from beginning to end If you are looking for something FUN and SEXY this Summer, THIS is the romance for you It DOES end in a cliffhanger, but The Sapphire Heist releases only a month after The Sapphire Affair, so that should lessen the sting a bit Gifted copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Live on July 12 Full Review 5 JEWELED CROWNSThree things about Lauren Blakely 1 Lauren Blakely has an amazing talent of infusing her romance with suspense The Sinful Night series is the perfect example of hot romance and the love stories of the Sloane siblings integrated with the epic mystery of their father s death The Sapphire Affair is another great example of her ability to integrate the two.2 She can write an epic sex scene Her men are always wonderful dirty talkers, which in the romance genre, is a must for most readers Jake does not disappoint 3 Lauren Blakely s plots are always complex, especially in the suspense romance genre There are many sub plots to her main romantic plot Her ability to weave these plots together seamlessly and among multiple books speaks to her ability to create engaging stories that draw readers in to the mystery being solved as well as the romance.Three things about her characters 1 Jake is the best kind of hero He cares for his family, rights wrongs perpetrated by criminals, and knows how to take care of a woman with a 3 1 ratio this is very important He is a giver, and what is better than that 2 Steph is a heroine that the reader can respect, and this is incredibly important to me as a female reader She is not only fighting to build her business back up after her ex boyfriend destroys it, but she is also trying to rectify a wrong that has been committed against her mother by her step father, who is no longer with her mother Her ability to claw her way back to success makes her an admirable heroine in my book.3 Their chemistry together is palpable The banter between Jake and Steph creates great sexual tension, and, when they finally get to act on their desires, it explodes off of the page.Three things about the plot 1 As I have said before, I love a good suspense romance, and this plot offers that very genre A majority of the story focuses on where the gems are located, how is the crime being committed, and how do they collect the gems or the evidence The answers to these questions will, I m sure, be answered in the second book of the series, as this book ends with a cliff hanger.2 The pacing of the plot is great Never once did I feel as though I was re reading information or questioning why I was being told something All parts of the plot are pieces to the puzzle that become important in this story or will become important, I m sure.3 The prologue immediately draws the reader into the story, and the plot ends at the perfect part The reader feels as though the relationship has been established and settled between Steph and Jake, but then Steph makes a discovery that destroys it all It makes the reader very anxious to see how this discovery is not only going to affect their relationship but also the newly established partnership to solve the mystery of the gems.This author is one of my go to romance suspense writers, and The Sapphire Affair is another fantastic, sexy romance by Laruen Blakely I look forward to getting the resolution of Steph and Jake s story in The Sapphire Heist ARC received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.For reviews and book information, please check out my blog, Musings of the Modern Belle, at or follow me on various social media sites.
