What if keeping your job depended on keeping a secret?
Daisy Manning has been testing security by shoplifting in Worthingtons Department store for five months. Not once in that entire time has she been caught by security personnel. Until today.
Kent Whitaker is disgusted by the beautiful thief he’s caught red-handed, and even more disgusted by his attraction to her. While he won’t allow himself to become romantically involved with a thief, he can certainly help out a friend by curing his daughter of bad habits.
They both fight their growing attraction, Kent because dishonesty is the one trait he cannot tolerate, and Daisy because Kent is directly interfering with her long-range career goals.
But when an unskilled matchmaker tries his hand at getting them together, the unexpected happens to them both as Kent gets distracted and Daisy steals his heart!
My Review: 5 Stars
My second time reading Steal His Heart and it's still a 5 star read for me! I absolutely loved Daisy and Kent! They were hilarious!
Daisy is working as a shoplifter and Kent is working security in the same department store. They met for the first time when Kent caught her shoplifting. They were both instantly attracted to each other but neither one wanted to admit it. When Kent found out that Daisy was the daughter of his mentor he tells himself that he needs to "help" her overcome the shoplifting habit for her father's sake. He was a stubborn man who refused to admit his feelings about Daisy. Daisy really had a hard time lying to Kent. She wanted to tell him what she was really doing but in order to do her job she could not tell him. She had to let him think the worst of her just until she finished the job and then she hoped he would be able to understand why she had to lie in the first place.
Of course there are little ups and downs before they get their HEA. And let me tell you.. some of those ups and downs will have you giggling or just straight laughing out loud! I loved the ending of this book. It was perfect!
I couldn't help but notice this time around that this book is set up to be a possible series. I wonder if Daisy's sisters will eventually get their own books?! Crossing my fingers that they will! I'm thinking that Sam and Lily's story would be a fun read as well! ;)
Steal His Heart was one of the first books I read by Diane Darcy and she instantly became a favorite of mine! I would recommend her books to everyone! Can't wait to read even more by her!
