Enoch, Suzanne: (03) Billionaires Prefer Blondes

Suzanne Enoch’s Billionaires Prefer Blondes is perfect vacation or, in my case, pre-vacation reading (I read it before heading to Japan, where I am now). This is the third book about Samantha Jellicoe, former cat thief (and adrenaline addict) and Rick Addison, billionaire. Like the first two, it mixes capers, romance, and a bit of mystery, for a light fast enjoyable read.

This book is an improvement over the second because its plot is a return to the personal. Samantha’s father, who taught her to be a thief, turns out not to be dead after all. More, he appears to be involved in a theft from Rick. The resulting plot tests Sam’s resolve to give up stealing, and the balance of independence and trust in Sam and Rick’s relationship.

These books are clearly designed as a long-range open-ended series, again reminding me of J.D. Robb’s In Death books. They aren’t quite as smooth at it, with some minor long-range threads feeling a bit awkwardly integrated. However, the ending bodes well for the continued excitement level of the series, and I look forward to the next one whenever I need either vacation reading or a break from pre-vacation running around.

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but when I see “Cat Thief” I think of someone who steals cats, as distinct from “Cat Burglar…”

  2. Dude, give me a break–I was writing in an airport after getting up at 5:30 in the morning . . .

  3. Your review intrigues me. Unfortunately, I was just at her website, and it commits one of the primary sins of an author website: no good list that I can find that describes the order of books in the series. Any help here?

  4. Elaine: the first two are Flirting with Danger and Don’t Look Down, in that order.
