Such a fun read!! I will be reading more by Tamara Morgan- especially more in the Penelope Blue series. I fell in love with all these characters- they are unique & entertaining & the story is fast paced - it hooks you from the very first page. I admit I read way too late but I couldn't put it down. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

My first time reading a book by this author, I lucked out! Such a fun premise. Really out of the box thinking and I love that, can't say this one was predictable.. All of the supporting characters were fun, feel bad for Ryker, he seemed so sweet under all that gruff exterior. Grant was dreamy and seemed happy to let us in on the joke!!!! Loved it! Hope there is more

DNF. Ok so I am going to be completely honest I was not able to finish this book. I tried for a month and it just did not work. I think for me the problem was the fact that it kept switching back and forth from present and past. And it just didn't seem realistic, at least not to me. I wasn't able to get lost in the world because I kept questioning the why's of everything that happened. Such as if the husband knew she would be at the heist why not wait to arrest her. Or if she thought he was cheating why not steal the treasure and get rich and leave him. Yeah I understood that they may actually love each other (I am not sure as I could not even get that far into the book) but it just wasn't able to play out for me mentally. Now these are just problems that I had while trying to read this book so it wont be the same for all. And a lot of readers seem to like the book, it just wasn't for me. ~ A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection.

'Stealing Mr. Right' by Tamara Morgan is book One in the "Penelope Blue" series. This is the story of Penelope and Grant. Pen is a jewel thief who works with what really are her friends. Her husband is Grant who is a FBI agent. This book starts with her and her friends trying to do a heist but her husband comes in doing his job to help protect a necklace...the same necklace Pen wants to take. This book hooks you in by you wanting to find out how these two even meet much less become married. Which the books slow starts to tell you in the way of jumping from present day to the day they first met to through out their lives up until the present day again. I am usually not a fan of those type of stories that jump around but this one did work for me. I also like the secondary characters, the humor and just all around story. I will be looking for more books by Ms. Morgan for sure! *A Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team Selection*

Stealing Mr. Right is the first of the three part Penelope Blue series by Tamara Morgan, about a professional jewel thief and her husband, an FBI agent. It’s the first time I’ve read this author and she’s got my full attention now with a delightful cat and mouse game that has enough plot twists to keep the reader on their toes, while providing a swoonworthy romance. This story has both a romantic comedy and a chick lit feel, and when I heard it was the first of three stories about the couple – who are already married – I was worried that this part would end in a cliffhanger. I’m happy to report that that is not the case. Stealing Mr. Right has a wholly satisfactory happy ending and is a complete story on its own. It’s told entirely from Penelope’s point of view and consists of equal parts flashback telling how Grant and Penelope met and got married and scenes in the present dealing with the aborted jewel heist and resulting fall-out. The segments are well identified and the writing voice used also makes it clear which is which – the parts that take place in the past are written in past tense and the parts in the present are written in present tense. It makes for an interesting reading experience. Penelope is a resilient young woman. She had no choice but to adapt to life on the streets as an abandoned teenager, her mother having passed away in childbirth and her ‘trophy wife’ stepmother unwilling to play the part of mom. She was aided by Riker, another street rat and together they did what they needed to survive, eventually moving on to bigger and better heists. Stealing was a way for her to survive and she’s not apologetic about it at all. Now, she doesn’t do it for the money but for the thrill of the job. Riker is her best friend and they have a close relationship – though that has been strained by her marriage to Grant. He thinks Grant is using her to get at her father’s supposed fortune and that their marriage is a farce that will end with her getting hurt. Penelope finds herself torn between the man she’s in love with and the man who’s always had her back. Grant is an enigma. Penelope assumes that he knows exactly who she is when she first – and rather audaciously – approaches him on a surveillance job. In fact she introduces herself by her real name, so there’s no mystery. What she doesn’t expect is that he’ll ask her out! How much he knows about her isn’t clear, and nor is his motive is in wanting to date her. As the story progresses, Grant’s role becomes murky. In the sections of the story set in the past, he’s a handsome man in pursuit of a beautiful woman and they share some sensual scenes (which aren’t overly descriptive, though Grant is a good kisser!) as their relationship heats up. In the present, all bets are off and we don’t know if he’s a good guy or a bad guy, a man who loves his wife and is willing to do anything for her or if everything is leading up to a big takedown. Honestly, it makes for a very exciting and page-turning read because the reader has no idea what is going to happen right up until the very end. The plot twists are eyebrow raising, with the necklace at the center of the story. Stealing Mr. Right entertained me from beginning to end and I definitely plan to read more about this intriguing couple!
