Review: The Scam by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

Product Description:
Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O’Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that’s what everyone thinks. In reality, Fox and O’Hare are secretly working together to bring down super-criminals the law can’t touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.

Evan Trace is running a money-laundering operation through his casino in Macau. Some of his best customers are mobsters, dictators, and global terrorists. Nick and Kate will have to go deep undercover as high-stakes gamblers, wagering millions of dollars—and their lives—in an attempt to topple Trace’s empire.

It’s a scam that will take Fox and O’Hare from the Las Vegas strip, to the sun-soaked beaches of Oahu’s North Shore, and into the dark back alleys of Macau. Their only backup—a self-absorbed actor, a Somali pirate, and Kate’s father, an ex-soldier who believes a rocket launcher is the best way to solve every problem. What could possibly go wrong?

My Thoughts:

I absolutely love this series. The Scam is book number four in the Fox and O'Hare series and I can't wait for more, especially with the huge cliff-hanger at the end of this one. 

Already being a huge Evanovich fan from the Stephanie Plum series, I feel that Kate is exactly how kick ass Stephanie should be after twenty-one books in that series. Kate is smart, sexy and a regular Jane all rolled into one brilliant package. Add to that the rich, handsome and devilish Nick Fox and you have my new favorite fictional couple. Move over Jamie Fraser and Claire Randall and Rourke and Eve Dallas.  

My Recommendation: 

This series is over the top fun and I recommend it for anyone who loves silly romantic thrillers.
