Marie James ~ Sleight of Hand ~ Release Blitz / Teasers / ARC Review




Marie James

Release Date: October 26







Gaige Ward, acquisition expert for Blackbridge Security, obtains things for the team.


As far as your mind can take you is how far he can go.


If it exists, he can get his hands on it.


If he can’t, he’ll find someone who can.


He never fails.


As with all things when growing in popularity, Blackbridge is also taking on scrutiny.


His boss, in an attempt to counter being called misogynistic and discriminatory against women, needs a female with the ability to handle the same tasks his guys can.


Leighton Redmond fits the bill perfectly.


Only, according to her she isn’t for sale, for employment or otherwise.


Gaige loves a challenge but has NEVER had to fight so hard to procure something for his boss.


Maybe next time he’ll think twice before having a one-night stand the day before a very important business meeting…

My ARC Review:


Book 7 in this Blackbridge Security series, and this book focuses on Gaige, the in house lawyer, he’s used to acquiring things for the team, but hits a bit of a stumbling block when his boss asks him to acquire a woman, Leighton, for the team….. turns out it was the woman he had a ONS with last night….. did the dirty on her, pretended he was married and walked out!!

Leighton’s life has taken a turn for the worse, her parents splitting up and the company she worked for closing down. But even after this she didn’t expect to run into her ONS guy at her meeting with Blackbridge this morning!!

This story is all about this couple, not much in the way of action or drama, but plenty of action in the bedroom!! Their chemistry is super hot, the attraction undeniable….. in the beginning they were both interested in just one thing, getting it on….. neither were the type for relationships, but as they got to know one another this started to change, yet neither came clean with that info to each other…..

Fun and flirty banter in this one as we watch both Gaige and Leighton fall for each other, without letting the other know, until of course it’s too late and mistakes are made that make it hard to patch up. A bit of interaction with the other team members along with way, a little from Puff Daddy in this one but not a lot. I loved Gaige’s relationship with his family, especially his Gran, emotional in parts, Gaige’s vulnerability was endearing. A good addition to this series, just a shame there wasn’t more action/drama.







Meet Marie James:

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.
