Pimpernel by Sheralyn Pratt

For centuries, the elite of the world have sought the Pimpernel everywhere. Some want to kill him, others want to hire him, but Jack Cavanaugh knows that the love/hate relationship comes with the job title.

At present, Jack is trying to dismantle an investment scheme centered in Las Vegas, but "trying" is the operative word. It's been a month since he put the face of the scheme behind bars, yet the scam is still going strong. As Jack tries to uncover who has stepped in as the new head, what miniscule evidence there is all seems to point him back to Claire Ramsey, an introverted PhD student studying at UNLV.

If ever there as an unlikely head of an investment scheme, Claire's it. She has a genius IQ, but from all Jack has seen, Claire’s intelligence is as much a blessing as a curse when paired up with her acute OCD. Claire can barely make conversation with the cute guy down the hall, which makes it hard to believe she could be the charismatic salesperson who is getting international businessmen to invest $5—50 million a pop.

So what is Jack missing? What is the real story behind Claire Ramsey? And once Jack learns it, will he be able to walk away?

Oh my.  I am still thinking about this book days after reading.  My head is having a hard time letting it go and I really want to be able to read the next book right now.  Sheralyn Pratt says in the back of her book that if I want another book in this series, I should write a review.  So, here is it.  And now?  I'm waiting.... (said in my best high pitched sing- songy voice)

I really did love this book.  It took me a quick minute to adjust to Claire and her voice and settle in with the story but once I did?  I just couldn't pull myself out.  Claire is brilliant and like all of us, flawed.  But it is her flaws that make her brilliant and so very human.

Claire would obviously need a brilliant sort of man to match her.  Jack fits the bill for this perfectly.  He has more tricks up his sleeve, quite literally, than anyone else.  I loved Jack.  He was the glue that held all the characters and the plot together.

This book is full on from beginning to end.  There is danger and intrigue, secrets and surprises.  It was so engaging and fun!  I loved it.  Oh, wait.  I said that already.  It will be a loooooong wait for the next book.
