Great outlaws lost their lives to Ford. Great ladies lost their hearts.
Ford Illuminati, Prez of the famed Bare Bones MC, is in the crosshairs of Noodlum, a whacked thug recently joined with the Cutlasses. When Ford’s company steals some highway workers of theirs, Noodlum lashes out with subterfuge, placing fake news stories about the club and stealing their identities to charge Cialis and penis weights.

But the clincher is when Noodlum targets Ford's old lady, Madison. His twisted obsession with Madison puts Ford on the alert, and Santiago Slayer on his trail. But things haven't been going well between Ford and Maddy lately. His two jobs—Prez of the MC and his construction company—have got him working more than double time. Neglected and feeling unloved, Maddy has a meltdown when a patient of hers dies. She needs to do something different--something fulfilling.
When she works at a clinic on the Indian Rez, a heartthrob doctor catches her eye. But he's not the real menace. Noodlum has come unhinged, targeting the light of his life—Madison Illuminati. Ford is forced to play along with the whacko's games, step by step. It will take the combined forces of his club and his company to emerge save his one true love and reclaim their marriage.

It Takes a Thief is the seventh book in the Bare Bones MC series by author Layla Wolfe. Because this series is a continuation of characters we met in book one, you really do need to read this series in order.  This is my first time reading this series, and I will admit the first couple of pages confused me at first. But I did catch on after a while.
I really loved the character arc of Maddy. She is so lost and confused when we meet her. She has been through a lot and she is just in need of someone to lean on. Unfortunately, her husband is far too busy to be that person. So, she must learn to lean on herself for a while. I see towards the end where she really gets strength and pep. She is not a wilting flower but a strong capable woman who can fight for what and who she wants.
Ford grows a lot in this book too. He must learn to say no, and communicate with those around him more. He is a strong character who always is in control but he learns that just pushes all around him away.
Over all a great action packed read. I loved this one and look forward too many more in the series in the future.
