One last heist.
It should've been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a nightmare of betrayal.
Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.
Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they're spiraling out of control and the journey they're travelling can't last.
What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous conspiracy. They're now in a race to come out on top. If they fail, the consequences are unimaginable.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
One Last Heist is an entertaining read that for me, is loosely reminiscent of the TV show, Leverage. We have a group of thieves that rob from the robbers, getting stolen items back where they belong while taking a bit for themselves along the way. The romance here is an established one, so we don't get all the angst associated with new love. What we do get are two terrific characters who have known each other for most of their lives and are utterly devoted to each other. That devotion also comes with some witty banter and steamy goodness. This one also comes with some intrigue as this merry band of thieves stumbles into a conspiracy and betrayal that leads them down a dangerous road. It's a slow build on the action, but the writing style and storyline keep the pages turning. As I've come to expect from this author, the characters are rich and colorful and the story pulls the reader in to the lives of those characters. All in all, another engaging tale from Dalia Donovan.
One Last Heist has a host of new characters, and our main couple are already married, which made for a lovely change. They both have jobs by day, but are thieves by night. Mack has a list of rules that he works to, helping to ensure he only robs from those who deserve it. And yes, there are plenty of Robin Hood references guaranteed to make you smile. They get caught up in a situation that quickly takes them from their 'normal' into something far more dangerous that could change their lives forever. I loved how this story played out. Mack and Toshi are brilliant both together and separately. Charlie, Tosh's sister, is autistic and her coping mechanisms are captured perfectly, along with an explanation of the why's and how's. In fact, I have to say that I thought all of the characters were more than capable of standing on their own two feet. They worked great as a team, with their own individual strengths helping each other, but none were so weak they could ONLY be part of the team. With plenty of twists and turns, only some of which I saw coming, or partially at least, this story kept my interest from start to finish. Absolutely recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
