Too Wicked to Keep Reviews
Setting: Lake Shore mansion, Chicago; upper class apartment; around town shopping.Theme:Characters:Abigal Albertini Chamberlain: the perfect, restrained daughter of upper class parents, engaged to be married, but a part of her wants to be wild; succumbs to the attention of David Brandon (thief) who sees her wild side, and entices her into his arms – when he gets the combination to the safe where the painting of her grandmother (naked, painted by a famous artist with whom she was having an affair though married to her grandfather), and steals it… She confesses all to her fiancé, who loves her, forgives her, marries her, and gives her 4 years of great marriage and great sex – her confession having helped him to see the whole of her, not just the girl he grew up with an loved. But he died in a car accident a year ago. The painting is up for auction (though no one has seen it yet), and she wants it back to save her family the embarrassment – both of her grandmother’s and her own scandals.Daniel Burnett aka David Brandon: he’d never used sex to get information before, and found that he didn’t like himself… and he found that he didn’t want to leave her… he goes to Abigal the night before she was to marry and ask her to run away with him… she turns him down, in love with her fiancé, and he promises to get the painting back for her… then he goes to mexico for 6 months in a drunken stupor… and when returns he refuses to take any job in Chicago again. He has just helped his brother Michael save Claire, has seen Lucy change her life to one of honesty.. and Michael put the Murrieta ring on his finger (and it wouldn’t come off). When Abigal locates him to ask him to make good on his promise to steal the painting back, he goes.Alejandro Murrieta and Lucy Burnett: older brother, adopted sister to Daniel.Michael Murrieta and Claire Lecuyer: younger brother, ex FBI, in business with new fiancé / PI. When they realize Daniel’s in trouble, they show up in Chicago to helpCaptain Harris Liebe aka Harrison Love: great, great, great grandson of Zorro’s nemesis; met Daniel in Mexico and learned about the painting, the girl, his self hate, the brothers, the ring. His own grandson is going down a bad path, and he wants the ring to give to his grandson – Zorro owes him.. he is the one who set up Daniel and tried to get him to get the ring. Now he has the painting, expecting that Abigal would contact Daniel for him to steal it from him.Murrieta ring: bestows certain gifts on the wearer – boosts a guy’s need for risk and danger; increase the wearer’s appeal to women; a heightened sense of right and wrong, a strong urge to fight for justice, rather than personal gain.Summary:In a convoluted way Daniel and Abigal explore the passion that still beats between them, and find love… Abigal feels she has her husband’s blessing to be herself and to be happy. When Daniel makes the strike for the painting, and is confronted by Harrison Love and what he wants (the ring for the painting), he returns to Abigals and to his brothers & their fiancés. They come up with a plan to give Harrison the a duplicate ring… they all dress up for the unveiling – he men as Zorro, the women as gorgeous costumes… and Daniel finds he can’t say goodby to Abigal, inviting her to come to Spain (and where else the world) because he is going to go into security and security systems.
***4.5 out of 5 stars***I loved Danny from the very first book in this series. Danny and Abby were together 5 years ago when he used her to steal a painting of her grandmother. Abby has grown as a women in the last 5 years. She is much stronger now than she was 5 years ago. This time, she is willing to fight for the man she loves.I really enjoyed seeing Danny grow as the series progressed. He and Abby both had to grow and change a bit to get to the point where they can be together. Abby and Danny are so hot together. In fact, their chemistry leaps off the page.I'm a huge fan of Julie Leto and have to say she delivers once again with Too Wicked to Keep!
I wanted to like this book more, but for some reason I couldn't get into it. Maybe if I had read the two previous books I would have known the hero a little better and I would have enjoyed it more. I don't know, but it fell a little flat to me.
Good Book and good series
