Dirty Thief, an all new sexy and scandalous installment in the Dirty Players Series by Tia Louise is available now!
DIRTY * SEXY * SCANDALOUS
What do you get when you mix a brooding king with a sexy pickpocket? Not your usual fairy tale.
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 an erotic 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.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley:
I'm big fan the Dirty Players so when I saw that there was going to be an addition to Rowan and Ava's story I knew I wanted to get my eyes on it! Tia Louise wasn't lying when she put the words Dirty. Sexy. Scandalous. on the cover of Dirty Thief! WHEW!! Hot doesn't even begin to describe it. Plus there was a Logan and more than one Cal sighting (yay)!
If there is one thing Ava should know it's that the past doesn't like to stay there. Never mind that she's worked tirelessly to move forward, it just won't let her go. Ugh- my stomach was in knots learning all that had happened to her. I wanted to break the lamp like Zee had. If only she knew that one moment would come back to haunt her so terribly. Threaten the happiness she had found with Rowan.
Oh that Rowan. Can you say swoon? Granted it was hinted at in their other book but I didn't know he had this level of alpha in him. I absolutely loved seeing all the sides of him. The King. The husband. The brother. The Dominant. The protector...I think that was the side of him I enjoyed seeing the most. He went all out to make sure his queen, who even when he was upset with, he treated like a goddess, and her interests were protected. Because when Ava, with all her best intentions, stepped right into harms way there was no chance to be diplomatic. It was do or die.
Holy heart racing climax! I didn't see that ending coming at all. A big kudos to Tia Louise for throwing in some topics that are extremely relevant in today's climate and breaking them down to what matters. What's right. I was thoroughly consumed by this addition to Ava and Rowan's love story. Dirty Thief gripped me from the first page and didn't let go until it was all over and I still wanted more.
AvaI’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.
