Goodreads Description :
Curses and cons. Magic and the mob. In Cassel Sharpe's world, they go together. Cassel always thought he was an ordinary guy, until he realized his memories were being manipulated by his brothers. Now he knows the truth—he’s the most powerful curse worker around. A touch of his hand can transform anything—or anyone—into something else.

That was how Lila, the girl he loved, became a white cat. Cassel was tricked into thinking he killed her, when actually he tried to save her. Now that she's human again, he should be overjoyed. Trouble is, Lila's been cursed to love him, a little gift from his emotion worker mom. And if Lila's love is as phony as Cassel's made-up memories, then he can't believe anything she says or does.

When Cassel's oldest brother is murdered, the Feds recruit Cassel to help make sense of the only clue—crime-scene images of a woman in red gloves. But the mob is after Cassel too—they know how valuable he could be to them. Cassel is going to have to stay one step ahead of both sides just to survive. But where can he turn when he can't trust anyone—least of all, himself?

Love is a curse and the con is the only answer in a game too dangerous to lose.

My Thougth :
After the ending of White Cat, Red Glove starts with Cassel and his mom running scams on other people. After what his mom did to Lila, Cassel tries to avoid Lila until the curse fade away. Cassel returns to Wallingford and he's so surprised when Lila also goes to Wallingford because she can't stay away from him.

The things getting more complicated when his oldest brother, Philip, is murdered by someone who wears red glove. The Feds come after him to solve the case. At the same time, Lila's father want him to work for him. With his friend's help, Cassel tries to solve all of the problem.

After read White cat, I really can't wait for read this one. Red Glove is a great book, and the ending is shocking. Red Glove is better than White Cat. Cassel is amazing. I love him even more after read Red Glove. In this book, we can find a perfect mix between crime, mystery, mob, magic and romance. If you like White cat, you would enjoy Red Glove. I highly recommend Red Glove.

I give Red Glove 4 out of 5 stars
