Maggie Lawson is an OR nurse, a certified germaphobe! She likes to keep things clean and orderly. When she meets Ex-Navy SEAL, Gabe Masters, on the New York City subway, he’s disguised as a dingy, dirty hobo. She cringes as she’s forced to use her nursing skills to revive him. Gabe Masters narrowly escaped his latest assignment, but concerned about the data he's stolen, he slips it into the pocket of the nurse who came to his aide.
Attempting to retrieve it, he breaks into her apartment. What he finds is that his angelic savior is not as compliant as he’d hoped. And Maggie finds that her hobo patient is a ‘dirty boy’ in more ways than one! After being forced to do his bidding, she unwittingly gets entangled in a dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure that tests the boundaries of her spirit and the capacity of her heart. Gabe’s passion spirals her to unimaginable heights. She soon starts to wonder if he is the real danger. They learn to trust each other as they try to figure out who is after them. As the mystery unfolds they also realize the significance of the research data that was stolen and its monumental importance. Will Maggie be able to convince this professional thief to do the right thing? Will she succumb to this ‘dirty boy’ who’s keeping secrets about his past, or will she chose to keep things clean? Gabe Masters has always walked away. That’s how he’s lived his life. No commitments. No ties. He’s lived years with pain and guilt. Will he be able to give his heart to this woman who finally brings him peace, or will he do what he does best and walk away?

Steal my Heart by Lisa Eugene
I enjoy romance books with a plot and twists that come along with said plot. This book had plot in spades let me tell you. You will not see the end coming, but do be prepared for a surprise well worth reading for, and don't you DARE peek!
I will admit it took me 2 chapters to get into the book, but once I did I couldn't put it down. Maggie is a germaphobe and Gabe teaches her how to get dirty with the best of them. Definitely a +18 read. Both Maggie and Gabe have a sense of humor that gives you a giggle when least expected. Maggie has a clear sense of what she feels is right and proper and Gabe has his and its electric when they clash about it.
Enjoy the read and recommend it to all your friends who like a little mystery with their romance. I will be telling all my friends about it.
