REVIEW: Shimmy Bang Sparkle by Nicola Rendell

       
Shimmy Bang Sparkle by Nicola Rendell
Release Date: August 21st Genre: Contemporary Romance

             

OUR REVIEW:
OMG, what do I have to do to get Nicola Rendell to feed me a constant diet of her brand of romantic comedies?! She ALWAYS delivers a great read and makes me insatiable for more. In Shimmy Bang Sparkle, I wasn't quite sure what I was in for because the title was a bit unusual but knowing that I'd love anything she wrote, I went in totally blind...and within a page I was totally hooked. I needed to know more about Nick (my god, his inner monologues were the absolute best and his observations about Stella were hilarious and sweet) and Stella and how these things was going to go down. 

Needless to say, I loved how it all worked out from meeting Stella's friends to hating the Texan and even the OH CRAP! I'm going to die how is this happening point in the book--it was a fun read that has me grinning all these hours later.

Every time I finish a Nicola Rendell novel I'm convinced that that couple is my favorite and Shimmy Bang Sparkle is no different. I adore everything about this sweet and sexy romance and I'm selfishly hoping against hope that her next novel comes out sooner than later.

BLURB
To catch a thief…or fall for one?
All Nick Norton wants is to stay on the straight and narrow…and never get caught stealing again. Then he lays eyes on her: Stella Peretti—100 percent sexy and absolutely irresistible. Especially when he sees her smooth moves lifting a two-karat diamond. Nick realizes he’s found the sparkling woman of his dreams—one so perfect for him it’s almost criminal.
The Shimmy Shimmy Bangs are master jewel thieves who are planning the heist of the century. And Shimmy leader, Stella, isn’t about to let anyone—even if he is a hunky, tatted-up studmuffin—get in her way. But when two of her girls are put out of commission, Stella realizes that Nick isn’t just a red-hot distraction. He might be the answer to her pilfering prayers.
Now, Nick and Stella are putting everything on the line for one last job. But when two thieves have this much chemistry, it’s only a matter of time before somebody’s heart gets stolen.
     
       
EXCERPT
“Niiiiiiick!” came her voice, more of a growl that an actual word. “Get me out of here. My legs are going numb!” To the bathroom I went, where I was met not only with Stella’s pinch-worthy ass in the window, but also an explosion of towels and makeup, shampoos and lotions, on every flat surface, and all over the floor. Dozens of makeup brushes poked out of an old coffee can by the sink, which was encrusted with jewels like Stella’s phone. Stella had managed to tangle her legs up with toilet paper like the back end of a sloppily wrapped mummy, so I pulled that off her first. She’d also gotten her belt loop hooked over the lock on the window, so I unhooked that too. But I didn’t pull her out quite yet, because her ass was just too hot to ignore. She was still in the same jeans she’d been wearing last night, and I took the chance to run my hand up the back of one thigh. I leaned down, and gave her a kiss on the small of her back. Her body went limp in the window, and she let out a moan. Once I’d had my fix, I hooked my arm underneath her hips and gave her a tug. I absolutely loved the way her skin felt next to mine, especially like this, when she was way too out of her element to feel self-conscious. The muscles of her stomach weren’t flexed, and I felt the soft curves and lines like she hadn’t let me feel them before. The narrow strip of skin where her T-shirt had ridden up made all those cliché terms make sense. Soft as silk. Sweet as cream. Fucking heaven.
