DIRTY * SEXY * SCANDALOUS
What do you get when you mix a brooding king with a sexy pickpocket? Not your usual fairytale.
Ava Wilder is beautiful, she lives in a pink castle, and she’s a thief. Rowan Westringham Tate loves power, speed, and Ava.
Their romance is straight out of a dirty Cinderella story, until the one man Ava is running from shows up to claim what she stole—or to claim her.
Now Ava might be forced to take another thing to protect her happily ever after… A life.
DIRTY THIEF is a white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE in the “Dirty Players” universe. It features secrets, lies, a touch of darkness, and scorching-hot sexy times. Prepare for frequent panty changes, frantic clicking, and rapid breathing until the end. Mature readers only.
It’s no secret I’m a HUGE Tia Louise fan. I love her writing, and I love her hot and sexy “Dirty Players Series.” It’s the perfect blend between an amazing plot, intriguing characters you will fall in love with, and some hot sexy scenes.
I was super excited for Dirty Thief. I couldn’t wait to read about Ava and Rowan. When we met them in the first two books of the series, I was hoping for them to have their own book. Granted, I thought we might get the story of how they met in their POV, so color me delighted when I found out it was a completely new story for the two of them. And it was brilliant!
I devoured this book. I couldn’t out it down unless I was at work. Ava and Rowan’s dynamic was unique and intriguing. The perfect match, they kept each other on their toes, supported one another, and loved another so much they would sacrifice everything.
There is quite a bit of current political topics being discussed in the book, which might not be for everyone, but as a political science minor I enjoyed it. However, the plot worked perfectly together with political themes, the suspense blast-of-the-past, and the scorching hot sex between these two.
I especially enjoyed Rowan’s more dominant side! Who would have though. Yum. If you like your Alpha’s strong, dominant and sexy, while still being supporting and sweet, you’ll love Rowan. This story certainly cemented this series as a favorite of mine.
While it’s advertised as a standalone, I do believe reading the others will help understand this story better and give you a deeper understanding to the characters.
If you are in need of a sexy and suspenseful story with characters you’ll fall in love with, Dirty Thief is the one for you. It’s one of the best series out there.
~Review by Anja
I’m just about to text Rowan back when the door opens, and he’s standing in the entrance. His face is unreadable. He doesn’t enter. He only waits looking like the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen in a dark suit and tie. He’s still wearing the glasses he’ll occasionally put on when he’s reading, and I rise out of my chair, closing the laptop before I go to him.
“I’m sorry,”I say, reaching out for his hand.
He takes mine and raises it to his lips before pulling me closer.
“What’s troubling you, Ava?”
I look down at my shoes, awkwardness filling my stomach.
“You didn’t have tocome all the way over here.”
“Why are you having second thoughts about the baby?”
I take a deep breath and sigh, lifting my eyes to his.
“It just seems like everything is in such chaos. What makes us want to bring a child into this mess?”
His dark eyes soften as they hold mine, but he doesn’t answer immediately. I love that he doesn’t pat me on the head and tell me to stop being ridiculous. He takes my fears seriously.
“It’s our royal duty,”he finally says.
Now I’m frowning.
“That’s your only reason?”
He touches the side of my cheek with his thumb, and I wait.
“I’d also like to see what happens when we take half of you and mix it with half of me.”
My frown softens a little.
“I have dreamed of our babies.”
I remember my chubby, dark-haired daydreams.
“I expect we’ll have an overly analytical, extremely controlled little leader,” he says,and I sigh and nod. “Or a thief who steals cars and races them away.”
I push his arm, ready to storm across the room.
