London, 1725. Everybody has a secret. Lady A will keep yours—for a price. This sumptuous, scandalous YA novel is wickedly addictive.

Lady A is the most notorious blackmailer in the city. With just a mask and a gown to disguise her, she sweeps into lavish balls and exclusive events collecting the most valuable currency in 1725 London—secrets.

But leading a double life isn't easy. By day Lady A is just a sixteen-year-old girl named Arista who lives in fear of her abusive master, Bones, and passes herself off as a boy to move safely through the squalor of London's slums. When Bones attempts to dispose of his pawn forever, Arista is rescued by the last person she expects: Jonathan Wild, the infamous Thief Taker General who moves seamlessly between the city's criminal underworld and its most elite upper circles. Arista partners with Wild on her own terms in the hopes of saving enough money to buy passage out of London.

Everything changes when she meets Graeden Sinclair, the son of a wealthy merchant. Grae has traveled the world, has seen the exotic lands Arista has longed to escape to her whole life, and he loves Arista for who she is—not for what she can do for him. Being with Grae gives something Arista something precious that she swore off long ago: hope. He has promised to help Arista escape the life of crime that has claimed her since she was a child. But can you ever truly escape the past?

I have been wanting to read this book since I first found out about it back in October of last year. I am very glad to have been a part of this tour and got the chance to read this one.

At first, this one started off being a little slow for me, I admit, but by about chapter 4, it started to pick up and the story completely swept me away and kept me wanting to find out what happens next. I got pulled in by Lady A and Arista and the whole thing. Some of the characters made me furious and some you fall in love with. I actually wasn't too particularly fond of Nic, Arista's friend/Lady A's bodyguard. Even though he is supposed to be one of the good guys, there is just a hidden quality that I didn't like about him. Same with Wild, I didn't trust him from the beginning (and apparently with good reason later on.)

Some of this story was a little predictable, but a good bit of it wasn't, which was refreshing. It seems that now-a-days too many books are becoming predictable. There is so much more that I want to say about this book, but I might give away the story, and I just can't do that (wink).

Disclaimer: *I received a copy of this book for free to review, this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
