The Tenderness of Thieves by Donna FreitasJane is ready for a fantastic summer. In fact, she's pretty sure the universe owes her one. This past winter, Jane was held at knifepoint during an armed robbery and the spectre of that night still haunts her. A summer romance with one of the town bad boys - sexy Handel Davies, who takes her breath away and makes her feel like a bolder version of herself seems like the universe's way of paying her back. But bad boys always have secrets, and Handel's secret just might shatter Jane completely. This suspense novel marries psychological thriller with summer romance and is perfect for teen fans of Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl.
