Stealing Marilyn Monroe

"Which was, unfortunately, exactly what I was going to have to do if I was going to find a new job and save my dad's life." ~ pg. 29

What a beautiful cover. Very eye-catching. Add in a synopsis about an art thief and possible romance and this book caught my interest enough to request an ARC. Juliet loves art; Juliet's father is an art thief. Put the two together and you've a got a girl who steals paintings from galleries for a living. She doesn't sell them but instead adds to her own collection. Until goons come around demanding that Juliet come up with the money her father owes. Too bad her father is in jail and cannot pull off a heist of his own.

Juliet comes up with a plan to go undercover as a wealthy man's nanny and steal his Marilyn Monroe painting. What she doesn't expect is to fall in love with the kids and maybe Edward himself.

Stealing Marilyn Monroe may start off slow but by the third chapter the author finds her groove. The writing is then engaging, flows and will hold readers' interest. An unconventional romance that I enjoyed reading.
