Synopsis from Goodreads

I am a world-class thief. Or I was, before I got pinched and landed in prison. After I served my time, I decided to get on the right side of the law, or as much as my job at Jameson Force Security allows. The lines sometimes blur, which suits me just fine. My name might be Saint, but I’m a devil to most.

My plan to go legitimate is going as anticipated, until my past and present collide in a big way. While in Paris preparing to take down a ring of highly specialized thieves, I come face-to-face with my biggest threat—and my most dangerous temptation.

Sindaria “Sin” Westin was the love of my life, until her betrayal landed me behind bars. Now I’ve got to find a way to trust her again, at least long enough to pull off this job. When it becomes clear the price for this heist will be our lives, I realize I need to do whatever it takes to keep Sin safe, even if it means trading my life for hers. Because no matter the lies I’ve told myself, Sin’s greatest theft was the day she stole my heart.

Review

Saint and Sin have a long and complicated history; both leading a life of crime for honorable reasons but addicted to the rush the perfect theft creates. Although Saint has turned his life around since a stint behind bars, he finds himself embroiled in a dangerous consortium in order to take down an international syndicate. Coincidentally, Sin also finds herself trapped in the same organization bringing her face to face with one of her deepest regrets, Saint.

The tension is high within Code Name: Heist in more ways than one. While Saint and Sin have a lot of issues to sort through, their connection to each other serves as a strong foundation to rebuild their relationship on.

Code Name: Heist portrays the corruption of wealth and the avarice it can create; especially when actions are carried out by others ensure there are no consequences for the instigator.

There is a lot of sub-plots within Code Name: Heist regarding other characters within the Jameson Force Security which will lead into their individual stories. The Jameson ‘family’ keeps growing and the bonds between the characters strengthen with each mission they undertake.
