Publisher's Summary

Seduction hotter than stolen jewels in this new series from the New York Times bestselling author of Big Rock.

Bounty hunter Jake Harlowe knows how to track a criminal. So when a group of swindled shareholders hire him to trail their former CEO, Jake expects a quick trip to the Cayman Islands to close another case. Until a devastatingly beautiful woman gets in the way.

Steph Anderson is visiting the Caymans for a rock climbing and dive trip - or so she tells Jake. She's really trying to find out whether or not her stepfather embezzled money from his company. The last thing Steph needs is the distraction of a sexy, charming man whose kisses drive her wild.

Soon, the pair discover they're after the same target - and millions in jewels. While Jake can't be certain Steph isn't working for her stepfather, and Steph can't be certain Jake isn't after the diamonds for himself, they can agree the heat between them is intense, and neither can deny the passion for long.

But the morning after, Steph discovers that she just might have slept with the enemy, and now she'll have to outwit him to get everything she needs....

    "An Excellent Story (So Far)"

    Part One of this 'romance on the job' has had me hooked from very early on. Another excellent story line from Lauren Blakely and performed brilliantly by Sebastian York. I don't want to give anything away as it is a two-parter! You'll just have to read it yourself, but I would definitely recommend this book!!

    Story
    "A True Gem!"


    Wow! This was my first Lauren Blakely story, and I was really impressed! The characters and plot were both well thought out, and developed.

    Jake's character was smart, caring, and hot! I loved he was great at his job, and serious about taking care of his family. When he meets the confident, but cautions Steph, the chemistry between them was instant, and the flirty banter was heated and sexy. While they didn't trust each other, they teamed up to investigate Steph's stepfather, and the mystery regarding the "alleged" embezzled money. However, with each new meeting, encounter, and kiss, more fuel is added to their growing attraction for each other, and the sexual tension between them reaches combustible levels!

    The narration was fantastic! Sebastian York has a great voice, and does an excellent projecting the different emotions throughout story!

    But, ho, boy! The cliffhanger! Oh, It's a good thing I've already decided to get book two as soon as it is released, as well as checking out other stories by Lauren Blakely......so I guess I can live with the cliffhanger...... even if it is a very suspenseful cliffhanger!

    Awesome story, and Kindle Unlimited deal!

    Story
    "Sexxxy!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sapphire Affair to be better than the print version?

    Um, lemme think... YES! Sebastian York could read a text book and it would sound sexy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that I "get" the authors sense of humor. I am a huge fan, and this book did not dissappoint.


    Have you listened to any of Sebastian York’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and my only thought about how this could have been better was that I wish it were a dual or duet narration. I've listened to him by himself and with other voice actors, and he never dissappoints.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Boom chicka bow wow!


    Any additional comments?

    Nope. It's a sexy romantic comedy. With a heist... enough said! I'm looking forward to book 2!

    "Cliffhanger"

    Sebastian York is the narrator, enough said. The story is entertaining, however the book ends with a "to be continued". I find that offensive to me as a consumer, I did not get a complete product.

    Story
    "4.5 Batman & Robin Hood Stars!"

    Ms. Blakely has done it again! She has given us an exhilarating, suspenseful and sexy story that captures you from page one and never lets go. I was also riveted by the wonderfully deep voice of the narrator, Sebastian York. He is able to set a scene, and expertly deliver the witty banter, suspenseful moments and steamy sex scenes effortlessly. Ms. Blakely and Mr. York are a favorite team of mine.

    Jake Harlow is a rugged, ex-military bounty hunter. He uses the skills he learned in army intelligence to recover stolen property for the rightful owners while raising and supporting his younger siblings. Steph Anderson is re-building her adventure tour company in vacation spots around the equator after her ex boyfriend tried to destroy it. Steph is sweet but brave and adventurous and never backs down from a challenge. When she learns that her step father, Eli, may have embezzled money, she is determined to uncover the truth. When she and Jake meet by chance in a bar over darts, the sparks begin to fly. Their banter is clever, and filled with hot, sexy innuendo. They can't deny their chemistry but have a hard time completely trusting each other. When they realize they are after the same man, they agree to team up. They have fun working in tandem, assembling the clues they uncover. But will their individual motives for the truth cause them to betray one another despite their passionate attraction? Jake and Steph are wonderful characters. They are both smart, caring, and playful yet they challenge each other making them so perfect together. Ms Blakely expertly introduces us to the other players in this mystery and reveals just enough clues to keep you turning the pages without making it predictable and lifeless. She also incorporates some fun names from previous works. This is an exhilarating, sexy story with hot passion and a touch of mystery. The ending will leave you wanting more and thankfully the next book - The Sapphire Heist, is only a month away!

    Story
    "No ending?? Don't waste your time on this cliffhanger!"

    What a waste of time and a huge disappointment to listen to this audiobook for hours while on a trip, only to discover that the author uses the cliffhanger ploy to try to trap readers into purchasing the next book. Not only will I NEVER purchase additional books to reward this deceptive practice, the book wasn't that great to begin with. I guess the author knew that, so she decided maybe she could make a few bucks by tricking people into buying subsequent books in the series to find out what happens. Frankly, I don't care what happens to these characters and would find it next to impossible to trust an "author" who "ends" a book by simply stopping in the middle of the story. For the author's sake, I sincerely hope she recognizes what a huge mistake this deceitful practice is and changes her ways. Cliffhangers are an indication that the author has no confidence in her writing skills.

    "1/2 a book. Not fair"

    This story is off to a good start but ends abruptly. I enjoy the author normally but only when series books are complete books. This was 1/3 to 1/2 a book and had a slow start. I would rather pay a bit more and have a complete story because this just stops when the story is getting interesting. It leaves the reader unsatisfied. I'll be more careful purchasing one of these again.

    "Too much unrelated blab that distracts from the story"

    The only reason I kept listening was because of Sebastian York's voice! I would listen to him read the phone book!
