Caught in the act of breaking into Sebastian Demetrious’ safe, Penny “The Cat” Matthews, thinks her criminal run has finally come to an end. Only she doesn’t expect the choice offered by the super-hot Greek billionaire, a choice which isn’t really a choice at all.

Prison or his bed.

It’s no hardship for Penny to submit to Sebastian’s desires. If a barter is what it takes to win her freedom, so be it. But before long she finds herself thinking about more than just the job, more than just the money. Only she’s a thief and he’s a billionaire…and she’s hiding a secret that might just change everything.


Review: Penny “The Cat” Matthews knows what her job is just like her sister’s know theirs. Each one has picked a billionaire to try and get money from. They say that since they have lots of money they will not miss any. Penny’s job is to break into Sebastian Demetrious’ safe and get out fast before she is caught. She never thought that he would decide to not go to the party and stay home.

Sebastian is tired of going out all the time. He just wants to have a quiet time at home and get some stuff done. He never expected to find someone breaking into his safe. When he realizes that it is a woman he can’t believe it. He is going to call the cops on her until he takes her mask off and she is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. He wants to know how she broke into his home and why she needed the money.

The first thing that caught my attention was the cover of the book. I knew I would be getting a really hot story and I had to read it. I never thought there would be so much passion and a huge connection between characters. I myself couldn’t see sleeping with someone the first time I saw them but I’ve never had that kind of connection. When I find out what the money is for I have more respect for Penny.

Sebastian does have a great heart and many people don’t get to know the man behind the money. He could have made different decisions then he did. I still have some questions about how Penny could afford the equipment she had unless she also took the money for those things from someone else. Every sister has a unique gift they use and I can’t wait to read the next two books in this series.
