4.5 star Review of Dirty Thief (Dirty Players #4) by Tia Louise If you loved The Prince & The Player then you are certainly going to enjoy Dirty Thief. Although not totally necessary, I would read the first book prior to reading Dirty Thief. The chemistry between Rowan and Ava continues to sizzle; throw in a healthy dose of suspense, mystery and danger and you are in for one heck of a roller coaster ride. This book is a little edgier and I will say that Rowan in “command” mode is certainly hard to resist. In fact I wouldn't resist at all!. Rowan and Ava are deeply in love and will do whatever it takes to keep each other and those they love safe. When Ava's past comes back to haunt her, will they be prepared to do what is necessary?Life in the palace is not always fun and games, there are serious issues when one runs a country and it take adjustments on both sides for Rowan and Ava to navigate their paths. These two are so right for each other, they click on so many levels that it was a pleasure to read their story. Tia Louise took us on an exciting ride and I was hooked from the first to the last page.
Book 4 in the The Dirty Players Series and just when you think these stories can't get any better or any hotter, Tia Louise ups the game !!!! This is the continuation of Rowan and Ava's story and I really wanted this book, I wanted to get to know the King and the Queen Regent and I wanted to dig into their life and relationship and that's exactly what this book is, so I would suggest reading the previous books in the series if you want to get the best out of this one. I loved seeing the King's dominate side and watching Ava show us her true submissive side as she keeps her King satisfied. This book is steaming hot but it's also a great story with intrigue, plotting and a few lies along the way, it's a real dirty Cinderella story and I loved it. Tia Louise gives us a well written story that will have you hooked from the very first page.
This is the fourth book in the series, but can be read as standalone, although personally I recommend reading them all and in order because this is a great series. I loved this series, while I'm still team Cal and Zelda I did love Rowan and Ava too. No matter which Sister or what Royal brother it is there is always trouble, so Ava and Rowan's story is no different. Ava is Rowan's Queen Regent and his love knows no bounds, while knowing her past was difficult one but with her love for Rowan helping her healing, but she's very resilient never forgets her past and wants, no needs, to help children like her. No matter where the trouble come from and there is always trouble, which ensues a thrilling story that we've come to expect from this series, the suspense, the hotness make this for another fantastic read from Tia Louise and I can't wait to see what's next.
I'm going to have to say that this is probably my favorite book yet in the Dirty Players series by author Tia Louise. There are all of the people that we've come to know and love (yes, even the crotchety queen mother) in previous books, and plenty of the intrigue that makes this series what it is, but something about this book just really grabbed me, and I could not put it down. Maybe it's that Tia Louise has so perfectly touched on issues that concern the world right this very minute. Or the way that Rowan, all alpha but totally adoring, makes Ava feel like she's finally safe and home. Or that Ava has finally completely come into her own, and is an equal match for her royal husband. All of these things together make for an intriguing, passionate, pertinent read that I thoroughly enjoyed, and that hooked me from the first page. There is all of the usual sizzle and steam that Tia does so well, and, oh, my goodness, was it wonderfully done here. The magnetic pull between Rowan and Ava is palpable, so much so that it virtually jumps off the page. They've absolutely found a way to keep their marriage fresh, and, boy, does it work. They are a true fairy tale, and so completely likable that I would love to see more of them. Cal and Zelda remain a breath of fresh air, and I loved catching up with them here. DIRTY THIEF is a great blend of passion, political maneuvering, and just desserts, and I highly recommend it. An easy 4.5 stars for Ava, Rowan, and all of the folks from Monagasco. If you haven't read this series, you're missing out, and should add it to your TBR right away.
Tia Louise amps up the Spicy Sex to 11 in her Romantic Suspense "Dirty Thief"! After reading this I don't think I can look at Wills and Kate the same way any more. Do all royals "get jiggy" this dirty? If so, sign me up! "Dirty Thief" is the third installment of Tia Louise's Dirty Players series. This book featuring King Rowan and Queen Regent Ava, the former (?) pick-pocket told in an alternating point of view. The action surrounds Ava and her past as the victim of child sexual molestation in the foster system. Rowan is stressed with political dealings with his uncle Reggie on his back second guessing his every decision. But behind closed doors Rowan and Ava still have that erotically hot newlywed heat. In fact, because of the stress they're both under the sex is fierce and passionate. "Dirty Thief" brings back beloved characters from the Duet and series. Prince Cal and Zelda return to the small country of Monagasco with their daughter Belle for a short visit. The dour Queen makes an appearance along with her downer brother Uncle Reggie. From Zelda and Cal's book Logan and Freddie figure prominently. And from the third book Cass makes a brief cameo. There're a few conflicts split three ways Ava's personal charity affecting Monagasco's international politics, Ava's past, and making an heir. The storyline has many nuances which make it captivating. The heart-pumping action and suspense combined with panty singeing sex keep the pace moving briskly. There is frustration that Ava doesn't communicate the threats she receives with Rowan but it is quite understandable. However I thought Freddie was keeping an eye on her emails. On the upside Cal and Rowan working together to protect their families is yummy! "Dirty Thief" keeps the quality quotient of the Dirty Players series flying high. One can only hope this isn't our last trip to the scenic and sexy country of Monagasco. ;) To read the entire review please visit: http://wp.me/p4XqxF-1R6 This novel was provided, voluntarily read, and honestly reviewed
