The Arrogant Thief is the eighth book in the Stolen Hearts series. You can read this as a standalone, but the storyline will make more sense if you have read the previous books first. There is sex so 18+. I have read all of the books in the series and was looking forward to reading about Melissa and Gage. But the storyline was mediocre and disappointing after the previous books. I was looking forward to more and a spoiled rich brat who didn't get what she thought she deserved was not it.

We finally have Melissa's and Gage's story and it's a good one! ***SPOILER*** Melissa and Gage have been "dancing" around each other for a little while now but she is Slade's little sister, so she is off limits. To bad their hormones don't know that. In an attempt to get Gage to do her bidding, Courtney Vance (spoiled rich girl) abducts Melissa and puts an exploding device around Melissa neck. Now they have to do what she wants or she will detente the device killing Melissa. If Courtney only knew who she was dealing them. She didn't her "research" very well. Gage will do anything to keep Melissa safe and punish anyone that tries to hurt her. This is a story that was well written and has well developed characters. It just flows with action, suspense, mystery, and well written romance. I volunteered to read a pre-released copy for my honest opinion and it is: I recommend this book, series and author.

energetic and suspenseful THE ARROGANT THIEF is the eighth (and final) instalment in Mallory Crowe’s contemporary, adult STOLEN HEARTS romantic, suspense series. This is Gage Triton, and Melissa Slade’s story line. THE ARROGANT THIEF can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Melissa is Peter Slade’s sister (The Vengeful Thief #4). Told from dual third person perspectives (Gage and Melissa) THE ARROGANT THIEF follows the building relationship between professional thief Gage Triton, and Melissa Slade. One of the original ‘bad boys’ from earlier in the series, Gage Triton now works undercover for Hart Securities, and his latest assignment goes all to hell when the woman with whom he is working is abducted and her life is threatened if Gage doesn’t follow along. Enter Melissa Slade, Peter Slade’s sister, and the woman with whom Gage will fall in love. What ensues is the building but tempestuous romance between Gage and Melissa, and the potential fall-out as Gage and Melissa are tasked with destroying a man’s life in order to save the life of our heroine. THE ARROGANT THIEF focuses on family betrayal, jealousy and revenge. Gage and Melissa are pulled into one woman’s plans to ruin the reputation of someone close. Gage’s personal and professional history straddles a fine line between right and wrong; Melissa is caught in a spider’s web, where her life hangs in the balance if things don’t go according to plans. The relationship between Gage and Melissa begins as a working relationship but Melissa finds herself attracted to a man whose personal life is a little bit out of control. Having danced around one another for a long period of time, our heroine is embarrassed and ashamed of her feelings for Gage, feelings she believes are not reciprocated. The $ex scenes are limited, intimate and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text but saying that I didn’t feel the connection between our leading couple. Although on the job, Gage’s back and forth, up and down attitude leaves something to be desired. THE ARROGANT THIEF is an energetic and suspenseful story line with spirited characters and an encouraging romance. Mallory Crowe’s STOLEN HEARTS series is a must read for fans of romance suspense.

Loved reading the eighth book in the Stolen Heart series. With Melissa's life in danger, Melissa and Gage are thrown together to work on a case together. Both Melissa and Gage have chemistry, Gage doesn't want a committed relationship, and Melissa doesn't want to get hurt. Read the highly recommended, engaging and intriguing, full of action, intrigue, and romance, and a must read love story.

A Exciting End To This Series!! A Decent & Steamy 3.5 Stars Melissa & Gage have had a strong attraction to one another throughout this entire series. Gage has never acted on it & Melissa makes plenty of assumptions as to why. She is really shocked then embarrassed by his reason after she finally hears it!! Her reaction then sets off unforseen & terrible consequences The storyline of this book made it an exciting, decent & Steamy read. I couldn't rate it higher, unfortunately, because of two things. 1. Something occurs in NYC that I didn't like. It's a personal preference about things I don't like in my romances. The 'thing' didn't actually happen but one of the characters doesn't know that!! So it's likely most people won't care, I did. 2. It ended so abruptly I really think this book, especially, needed an Epilogue!! Again, these are only my opinions, but it's my review so ..... There is plenty of danger for both Gage & Melissa. One of them is under constant mortal threat and they're, largely, cut off from their teammates. They don't have access to the normal tech they're used to plus Melissa ISN'T an operative, she's the Office Manager, she's not trained for this! They're going to need to trust one another to try and make it through this in one piece!!! This is a fast paced, thriller of a book. I recommend this book, I'd suggest starting the series with The Cocky Thief book 1. I'd say this could definitely be read as a standalone, it's just more satisfying & enjoyable reading the series in order Have fun Debbie, 1970, UK

I have been waiting for Gage and Melissa's story since their first encounter. I have enjoyed this series, but, I was a little disappointed with this final book of the series. The storyline was interesting. I felt like it had several different components to it that were never smoothly pulled together. The story was fast paced and kept you a bit on edge. The heat that was building between Gage and Melissa when they first met and continued through the beginning of this book, just kind of faded out. Slade made an appearance, but it was so brief, was there really a point? Then there was a point were the book managed to reach a climatic moment and be anti-climatic at the same time. To top it all off, the book ended so abruptly, originally thought there was something wrong with the download. No, it was just an abrupt ending. This book absolutely could have used an epilogue. Icing on the cake would have been to read what was going on with some of the previous couples. This left me a little sad and frustrated. I would give it 3.5 stars. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy.

ARC for honest review with no compensation. 4.5 stars The Arrogant Thief is the 8th and final book in the Stolen Hearts series and what a way to complete this series!! Job well done by Mallory Crowe! Melissa works for her brother but isn't really in the limelight until her life is threatened then Gage steps in to keep her safe but keeps his feelings for Melissa on the down low...Suspense, sexy times, adventure, action, danger to name a few of the things happening in this book and the build up of Melissa and Gage from the previous books keeps you turning the pages til the end... All books in this series are standalones but you will want to read the previous books to see how it all started!!!

This book and series has stolen my heart! I love this series and am so happy to see Melissa & Gage get their story! Oh I enjoyed seeing things unfold in this book! These two have fought the attraction between them for so long. The book had a great flow to it that I read it in one sitting! An action filled touching journey for these two! I really hope to see them again somewhere in Mallory Crowe's books! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

Gage and Melissa, the couple we've been waiting for! 4,5 stars This is a standalone in the Stolen Heart series, but for those who have been following the series, this is when we finally get the HEA/HFN from Melissa and Gage. Gage is Melissa's brother's employee (you know, for their line of work), so she's totally off limits. She is smart, sexy, sweet like the girl next door and, even though she is a civilian, someone who doesn't do their kind of job, she also works for Toni and Hart company in her own way. Gage is....well: "'I'm just curious. What kind of girl can tempt a guy like you?' 'What kind of guy am I to you?' 'You're the kind of guy who is too smart and too pretty for his own good.'" And that's the truth. He is too smart and too pretty for his own good. A thief, a bad boy, a cocky one, and somehow untamable. That is, until Melissa's life is threatend, and they are forced to admit their feelings. After all that time when they danced around each other, trying to hide their attraction, this life and death situation involving a crazy socialite using Melissa as leverage over Gage, they can't deny their chemistry and feelings anyore. It was fast paced, sexy and suspenseful, as Mallory's books always are!

No, no, no!! This is the end of the Stolen Hearts Series! I've thoroughly enjoyed this series and hate to see it end. I've come to care for all the characters and will miss them. Maybe I could talk Mallory Crowe into doing a short story with all the characters to see what they are up to now... I'd even beg... Gage and Melissa have been creating sparks for quite a while, so it was awesome to finally get their story. This book was different from the others in the series due to the fact that Gage and Melissa were basically on their own with no back-up and we definitely knew who the villain was. As always, there were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing and quickly turning the pages to see what would happen next. I do wish there had been an Epilogue to this book. Something to tie up the series. I urge you to read The Arrogant Thief. I urge you to start at the beginning of the series with The Cocky Thief. While each book can be read as a standalone, the series is more enjoyable if read in order.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Melissa and Gage finally have their chance and it is a great story. The perfect mix of relationship and the surrounding story. Really good read.

Gage and Melissa finally manage to get a romance with each other - this has been a long time coming! Don’t worry if you haven’t read the other books as it can be read as a standalone, though you will probably enjoy it more if you know some of the background to the group. Basically most of them are former thieves, thugs and criminals who now work together to right wrongs. In this story Gage is blackmailed into a series of jobs in order to protect Melissa’s life. Previously Melissa has only worked behind the scenes but Gage needs her as a distraction when getting into various buildings, plus their blackmailer has them living together, which ramps up the tension and heat. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
