Description from Goodreads:
She might only be twenty-three, but Renna Carrizal is the most notorious thief in the galaxy. There’s just one problem – all she wants is to get the frak out of the business.
But when Renna rescues an injured boy from the warehouse she’s casing, she finds herself on the run from the mob instead of enjoying retirement on a garden world. Turns out, the kid was a plant to lead her to MYTH, a top-secret galactic protection agency.
MYTH needs Renna’s special skills, and they make her an offer she can’t refuse – unless she'd like to spend the rest of her life on a prison ship. To make sure she does her job they shackle her with a MYTH watchdog, the handsome but arrogant Captain Finn.
A former mercenary-turned-galactic-hero, Finn happens to have his own dirty secrets. Secrets that Renna wouldn’t mind uncovering for herself. Together, they discover an experiment to develop illegal cybernetics that will create an unstoppable army. The intended target? The human star fleet.
Now Renna must use her skills as the Star Thief to pull off the biggest job of her career – saving the galaxy. And herself.
Finn dragged his gaze back to Renna's face. “I’ve already told you I don’t want someone like you on my ship or fraternizing with my crew. I know you, Renna. I know how you work. But Dallas says you’re the only one who can figure out who these people are and help stop them, so I have no choice.”
He lowered his voice and leaned close enough that his scent washed over her again. “Let me remind you: There’s a chain of command here and I’m at the top.”
So much for working together. Whatever he thought he knew, she wasn’t some raw recruit now. She was the best thief in the galaxy and he damn well needed to remember it.
Renna lowered her voice to match his tone. “I don’t mind you on top, darling. It’s when you start pushing me around that we’ll have a problem.” She smiled at him coldly. “So, I’ll do my job, don’t you worry. Just don’t expect me to play by your rules. You know I was never very good at following orders.”
