Author L.J. Shen delivers an epic enemies-to-lovers romance in The Kiss Thief! I absolutely loved this story! I have been on a serious mafia romance kick lately, so I was looking forward to reading The Kiss Thief. The premise is scintillating. I’m not usually into triangle’s but this one turned out to be exciting and unpredictable which I loved. It does have a bit of a dark romance edge to it. Wolfe is dominant and sexy, but he can be a total ass! However, it was impossible to not fall in love with him. If you aren’t into Alpha’s with a dark edge this may not be for you.
I happened to fall for this very bad boy. Poor Francesca is really thrown into the deep end in The Kiss Thief. I felt terrible about the circumstances that landed her in Senator Wolfe Keaton’s crosshairs. However, is was easy to feel the instant heady attraction after Wolfe and Francesca’s first meeting. I really enjoyed Francesca’s growth throughout the story. It was nice to see her find her strength while watching Wolfe realize there’s more to life than revenge.
The Kiss Thief is brimming with so much passionate emotion it makes you feel like your heart is going to burst. I loved these two so much I didn’t want the story to end. The Kiss Thief is a definite Joyfully Recommended Read!
