My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ring Tru is the first book in the Thick as Thieves series by Janice M Whiteaker. It is the first book I have read by here, and I enjoyed it. There is a good balance of romance, suspense and mystery, while being full of emotions of love, loss, trust and second chances. It is the story of Gertrude (Tru) and Will, who are career thieves, who were once married, but parted ways 5 years ago. They both have very different views on how the breakup went, and its interesting to see how they finally get on the same page again. Tru is posing as the trophy girl friend to a rich geriatric, as one last final job, hoping to walk away with enough of his jewelry to start over and never have to do another job. Will is also taking one last job, posing as security to the same rich client, but on a recovery operation. The last thing they each expected was to see each other working the same job, but from a different angle. Now they need to learn to work together to get the job done, before its too late. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and cant wait to read the 2nd in the series and see what happens next.

Ring Tru is the first book in the Thick As Thieves Series by Janice M Whiteaker. I had never read any of her work before this and was unsure what to expect. Lets just say that she gets a huge ‘thumbs up’ from me. I really enjoyed Ring Tru.
Tru has decided that it’s time to get away from her life as a high class thief but has one last big job to give her the money needed to go back to a ‘normal’ life. She’s pretending to be in love with filthy rich geriatric Ezra in order to steal a very valuable piece of jewellery from him and replace it with a quality fake made by her close friend Gretchen.
What she didn’t expect was to find her ex-husband Will also working for Ezra with a similar plan in mind. Will had left Tru a few years before in order to get her away from this lifestyle and was shocked to see her. Both realise that they are still in love with each other and plan together to swindle Ezra.
I really enjoyed the dynamic between Will and Tru, him trying to protect her from harm and her fighting with her feelings for Will. She really wants to hate him for leaving her but can’t deny that she still loves him.
This book had me gripped wondering how (and if) they would finally manage to carry out their elaborate plan. In this book we get hints of a possible romance between Will’s friend Cooper and Tru’s friend Gretchen. I’m hoping we get more from these two in the next book in this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ring Tru is the first book in the Thick as Thieves series. The ending is not a cliffhanger, but it does seem to have an abrupt conclusion. After everything they went through in the main part of the story, I expected a more well-rounded ending.

Tru is ready to be done with her life of crime. She’s doing one last job that will have her set for life. Things get complicated when her ex-husband shows up unexpectedly. Her patience is running thin and he has just added a new hurdle for her to jump. He took everything from her when he left, she won’t let him take her future from her too.

After five years, Will never expected to see Tru, especially on a job. He’d left her and tried to move on. When she appears on the scene, Will’s attention is split between finishing his mission and trying to keep Tru safe. He can’t afford to be distracted, but she is everything he still wants. Can Tru forgive him? As things heat up, can they work together to avoid getting burned?

Romance, suspense, and danger will keep you turning the pages!

4 Stars

This is my second book by this author and I did enjoy it, I guess my drawback would be that I wish it had been longer. Some things just seemed to happen at warp speed before I even understood really what was going on. The storyline was awesome and the writing was spot on but the details had me curious through most of the book. Sometimes I think books could be cut in half with too many details, this one could have almost been doubled and more time put into the characters histories and exactly why they were where they were today. If that makes any sense at all, it’s hard to explain.

Tru was awesome and just wanted to live a normal life but being left with what she thought was nothing by her ex husband, she’s forced to take on one more job and it would go perfectly if only she didn’t come up against that same ex husband who is also taking on one more job but in a totally different way, both of them out for the same thing yet for different reasons made this an awesome story. My favorite part of the whole book was the infamous manila envelope, that totally cracked me up.

I loved Gretchen and Cooper in this book but again would have loved even more about each of them and can not wait to read the next in this series.

So all in all I loved this story, I love this author’s writing and maybe that’s one reason I wish it was longer, I would have really enjoyed more of this story and these characters.

This isn’t my first read from this author and once again i was blown away with an amazing storyline! It gripped me in right from the beginning right until the very last page with it’s suspense and twists and turns certainly kepy me on my toes! It’s one of those novels that once you start you can’t set it down not til you’ve completed it as your eager to find out what’s going to happen next. It’s a short read but it still backed one hell of a punch and there are some unexpected turns, i truly enjoyed every second of this novel and i can’t wait to read more from this author.

Ring Tru- Janice M. Whiteaker

5-stars

Ring Tru by Janice M. Whiteaker is a must read! It’s a second chance romance/crime/thriller type read, and I enjoyed every second of it. This story is action-packed, dramatic, entertaining and so captivating. From the first chapter I was hooked. I ended up reading this book in one sitting as I couldn’t bring myself to put it down, I just had to know how everything was going to play out.

I loved both these main characters from the start and I couldn’t wait to unravel their past, I found Tru and Will very intriguing. I really enjoyed how this story flowed and I loved all of the detail that Janice used, it made it easy to picture everything playing out in my mind as I was taken on a wild journey alongside Tru and Will in their newest acquisition.

I can’t wait to continue this series and I would definitely recommend it to others!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ring Tru is the first book in the Thick as Thieves series from Janice M. Whiteaker. I had not had the pleasure of reading anything from Whiteaker before and I am so glad that I chose this one to be my first because I loved it! I was definitely gripped from the very first chapter to the last page, and I am anxious to get my hands on the next one in the series.

Tru has one job left before she can be on the path to a straight and narrow life. One problem, her ex is Will is back in the picture and not exactly going to make things easy. Will has always regretted his decision to leave Tru. Regardless of the reasons why he did. He is determined to make up for it now. Will these two be able to work together to pull off this crazy heist? Will they ever overcome their past and the damage that it has caused to have a future together?

This is one of those multilayer stories that leaves you constantly on the edge of the seat. I was never bored. Not only do you have the suspenseful jewelry heist stuff going on, you have the dramatic and tumultuous second chance romance that just tugs at all the right heart strings. It was an even better surprise that it was unpredictable!

By Janice M. Whiteaker

Ring Tru is book 1 in the Thick as Thieves series by Janice M. Whiteaker. This is the second book I have read by this author and again I want disappointed with her wonderful work. I absolutely loved this story and can’t wait to get my hands on the other books in this series. If the rest of the series is as good as book one, then we are in for another great series. If you are after a book that has suspense and a series of twists and turns then you really need to read this book, you won’t be able to put it down. Just can’t wait for the rest of the series now.

Ring Tru is book one in the Thick as Thieves series by Janice M. Whiteaker. As this is my first time sampling this author’s work, I had no idea what to expect. It was delicious anticipation, and well enjoyed. I totally devoured this story in one sitting.

Ring Tru is a spicy and angsty tale of lost love reconnected. It was edgy, it was fast paced, it was sexy, it was emotional, it was exciting. Tru and Will locked horns on many occasions, which provided endless entertainment and kept just the right amount of suspense and intrigue to have me spellbound. A great story in a series I cannot wait to get more of. 4 stars
