The Chameleon (Elite Crimes Unit #3) by Michele Hauf

The Elite Crimes Unit is a covert team within Interpol that specializes in taking down the world’s top criminals—and then offering them a deal. Because sometimes a history of bad behavior can be a very good thing . . .

Jack Angelo is clearly off his game. First his wallet gets lifted—by a pregnant woman, no less—on the ferry to Finland. At his hotel, he’s seduced by a sexy redhead who takes him for a ride, too. And when he finally starts casing the bank he’s supposed to rob, yet another female fouls things up. All he wants is to complete this assignment for the ECU to save himself and his family. Little does he know that the women who keep interfering are actually one woman—who’s about to show him just how outmatched he really is . . .

Known as “The Chameleon” Saskia Petrovik is a mistress of disguise tasked with watching the new recruit as he meets up with his high-level crew of thieves. She has no problem getting under the covers to pull off an undercover job—especially with the man known as Gentleman Jack. But multiple identities can cause multiple problems, and in these dangerous circles, the temptation to show her true self could change a deceptive affair into a deadly one . . .

My review:
The Chameleon is a sexy and totally entertaining romantic suspense where both the hero and heroine are not exactly the good guys though they work for the good guys. I haven’t read the earlier books in this series (but will definitely go back and get them now) and had no problem following the story. Gentleman Jack Angelo is a thief from a family of thieves. He traded jail time for stealing for the ECU. Saskia Petrovik is a mistress of disguise charged with keeping an eye on Jack to keep him from going AWOL. The chemistry between these two is tangible. It is fun watching them fight the conflicts of interest as they arise. I really enjoyed this different story.
