Our Review

‘I felt like I was dreaming. Never, in my whole life, had I seen anything so goddamned smooth. She seemed sweet, she looked so sexy, and to top it all off, she was utterly badass. I needed to get my hands on her. Now.’

We love Nicola Rendell, her stories always make us swoon, laugh and very hot under the collar. We’re swept up by her words and come over all unnecessary at the passion and pure romance. Well, she did it again and we fell in love. Shimmy Bang Sparkle is an easy to read swoon fest with a bit of ‘robbing’ and ‘throbbing’ action and comedy thrown in. It’s not our favourite by this Author but it sure did make us forget about the world around us for a while.

‘Here were the facts: He was a tatted up biker with a felony record and a swagger. He was hunky. He was manly. He was looking at me like he wanted to rip off all my clothes and get us booked for public indecency.’

Insta love is a bit of a hit or miss for us but this time it sure did work. Nick and Stella have an immediate attraction, after all, they’re kindred spirits. What starts as a physical ‘must have’ soon turns into stolen hearts and dreams of the forever kind. Nicola Rendell writes a good tale with passion and humour and whilst –yes- you have to suspend belief at times, it just works. We fell in love with the characters and believed in them wholeheartedly.

‘Forgetting about me was exactly what I’d asked her to do, because that would be the best thing for her. But the idea of me forgetting about her was brutal, impossible. To lose her was to lose hope. To lose her was the let go of the only life preserver I had. To let her go was to make the whole night sky go dark forever.’

Nick is just divine as is Stella, we loved both characters equally, and how refreshing to have mature characters act – well mature. Nick is a gorgeous sexy biker ex-con in his early forties who’s had a not so stellar life, and who is really just looking to settle down with his own auto shop alongside a dream of love and a peaceful existence. Stella is looking for the same but needs to carry out one last ‘job’ to achieve her ultimate dream.

‘He took my face in his hands and gave me a long and tender kiss. It was a kiss unlike any other we’d had. One moment it was sweet, the next it was desperate. It was urgent, it was sad. It was joyful, and it was terrifying.’

Sweet and spicy with fabulous banter, Shimmy Bang Sparkle is the perfect light easy read that’ll have you romantics laughing and swooning in equal measure as you root for the new age ‘Robin Hood’ girl gang and the man who steals a heart.

‘Find someone who makes you want to saddle up and ride into the sunset. Find someone who makes you so happy you could just about cry.’


To catch a thief…or fall for one?

All Nick Norton wants is to stay on the straight and narrow…and never get caught stealing again. Then he lays eyes on her: Stella Peretti—100 percent sexy and absolutely irresistible. Especially when he sees her smooth moves lifting a two-karat diamond. Nick realizes he’s found the sparkling woman of his dreams—one so perfect for him it’s almost criminal.

The Shimmy Shimmy Bangs are master jewel thieves who are planning the heist of the century. And Shimmy leader, Stella, isn’t about to let anyone—even if he is a hunky, tatted-up studmuffin—get in her way. But when two of her girls are put out of commission, Stella realizes that Nick isn’t just a red-hot distraction. He might be the answer to her pilfering prayers.

Now, Nick and Stella are putting everything on the line for one last job. But when two thieves have this much chemistry, it’s only a matter of time before somebody’s heart gets stolen.
