Goodreads:  What if, after spending a lifetime deceiving everyone around you, you discovered the biggest lies were the ones you’ve told yourself?

Grace Fontaine has everything: beauty, money, confidence, and the perfect family.

But it’s all a lie.

Grace has been adopted into a family of thieves who con affluent people out of money, jewelry, art, and anything else of value. Grace has never had any difficulty pulling off a job, but when things start to go wrong on the Fontaines’ biggest heist yet, Grace finds herself breaking more and more of the rules designed to keep her from getting caught…including the most important one of all: never fall for your mark.

Ope’s Opinion:  Even though the main characters in this book are high school age, the book felt more like an adult read.  The main characters were much more much mature and involved in adult situations.  This story is intense from page one until the last page ( which is not the end ).  I did not realize this book was part of a series, so the ending was not an ending – it just stopped.

All the characters in this book were interesting.  They each had distinct personalities.  I enjoyed their interactions.  I mostly liked Logan and Grace’s relationship – I thought they fell for each other a little too fast, but I liked that they took the relationship slowly.

I am still debating if I am going to read the next book.  It is called Promises I Made.
