✱✱ Book Review ✱✱ One Last Heist Tour and Giveaway



One Last Heist
by Dahlia Donovan
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense

One last heist.
It should’ve been easy. Crack a safe, steal from a villain, and go on vacation. The last thing Mack and Toshiro expect is to descend into a nightmare of betrayal.
Mack Ueda-Easton loves three things: his husband, heists, and his odd family of friends. He lives life on the edge. The only cloud on his horizon is the degenerative disease stealing his sight.
Toshiro Ueda-Easton tries to juggle his husband, his autistic sister, his interfering mother, and all of their heists. He knows they’re spiraling out of control and the journey they’re travelling can’t last.
What neither of them expect is to get catapulted straight into a dangerous conspiracy. They’re now in a race to come out on top. If they fail, the consequences are unimaginable.







Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

One Last Heist is an entertaining read that for me, is loosely reminiscent of the TV show, Leverage. We have a group of thieves that rob from the robbers, getting stolen items back where they belong while taking a bit for themselves along the way. The romance here is an established one, so we don't get all the angst associated with new love. What we do get are two terrific characters who have known each other for most of their lives and are utterly devoted to each other. That devotion also comes with some witty banter and steamy goodness. This one also comes with some intrigue as this merry band of thieves stumbles into a conspiracy and betrayal that leads them down a dangerous road. It's a slow build on the action, but the writing style and storyline keep the pages turning. As I've come to expect from this author, the characters are rich and colorful and the story pulls the reader in to the lives of those characters. All in all, another engaging tale from Dalia Donovan.



“Would you just admit you can’t see in the dark?” Toshiro snapped in pure frustration. “Mack. Are you listening to me?”
“I’m fine. My ears work perfectly.”
Fine.
He’s fine.
Right.
Fine, my arse.
Well, my arse is fine.
“You walked into the table.” Toshiro watched in the darkened room through the night vision on his camera while his stubborn husband stumbled around. “And into the sofa—oh, and the wall. Classic. You’re supposed to crack the safe, not take a header into it.”
“Toshi,” Mack whispered his nickname sharply. “Couldn’t you yell at me in Cantonese or Japanese or any one of the hundred languages you speak? It would still be distracting, but I wouldn’t understand a word of it.”
“I speak thirty languages—not a hundred.” Toshiro grinned even though Mack couldn’t see it. “I suppose the point of a timed run-through of cracking the safe might require your full attention. Oh, look, you tripped over the carpet again.”
Toshiro Ueda-Easton.
Gregor Tempest Mackay Ueda-Easton. Fine, fine. I’ll be quiet. Continue walking into the wall, but I’m not explaining your concussion to the others.” Toshiro continued to ramble about the idiotic stubbornness of his husband in Portuguese, one of the many languages he’d picked up over the years. “Idiota.
“I understood that one.” Mack tossed one of the drill bits of his safe-drilling rig in his husband’s general direction—missing him completely. “Keep cussing me out in Spanish.”
“Portuguese.”



Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
