Sheltered from the real world, Francis lives off Hollywood magazines, Lean Cuisines, and her secret obsession with romance novels. When her best friends set her up on an adventure of a lifetime, she’s more than willing to play along. A trip cross-country with a super hunky guy who smells like sin and excitement.
Being a con man has been a way of life for Luca. But his swindling ways eventually catch up to him. He’s been given a wicked task: kidnap a woman and deliver her to the villain.
Sounds easy. Until he meets her…
Captive: We’re getting out of Kansas, Toto!
Mr. Bing: Yap! Yap!
Con Man: Why are the crazy ones always hot?
My captive is a con artist too. A really fucking weird one.
This book was a breath of fresh air. It has been a while since I’ve laughed so hard while reading. This was a crazy, wild adventure that I want to read over and over again.
Luca may be a con man but you can’t help but love him. He cares for his family and will do anything for them. Francis, I can’t even begin to describe how much I enjoyed her. She was sheltered and is adorably quirky and like Luca says, “she’s nuttier than a squirrel on an acorn farm”. They are two very different people, but Luca needs Francis to get his family back. So what happens then the con man and the captive plus Mr. Bing go on a wild ride across the country? Well, you’ll just have to find out for yourself.
Luca and Frannie are complete opposites but I loved their chemistry. They helped each other, the protected each other and I loved watching their story play out. Every single character in this story was hilarious and added so much to the overall story. I couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear the entire time I was reading this story.
This was an over top, super fun romance full of plenty of many characters and loads of IOUS. A MUST READ and such an unexpected surprise.
