Con artist? Check. Hot Irish guy? Check. Star-crossed lovers? Check.

After being introduced to con artists and grifters in New Adult lit via Karina Halle‘s THE ARTISTS TRILOGY, I nearly jumped up and down after reading the synopsis of THE LONG GAME by J.L. Fynn.

*   *   *

Smooth talking. Ambitious. Loyal. Twenty-year-old Shay Reilly has proven himself to his Irish-American Gypsy clan on small-scale cons, but now the clan leader has a bigger mission for him: playing the long game.

To rake in the big score he’s after, he needs to con co-ed Spencer into falling in love with him. He knows he should see Spencer as a mere means to an end, but that’s easier said than done when there’s a witty, attractive girl in your arms.

Now the only thing that can keep them apart is the thing that brought them together: Shay’s plans of revenge against someone who wronged his clan and family years before—Spencer’s father.

Oh yeah, count me in.

Now for the cover, and may I just say, this is incredibly HAWT!

TLGCoverIs it just me, or does Shay look a little like RPattz? YUM.

THE LONG GAME comes out October 7, but you can already add it to your TBR list on Goodreads.

If you send her an email she might let you in on her little secret—assuming she likes your moxie.

And here’s where you can find her:
