3.5 stars. The Deadly Thief is the seventh book in the Stolen Hearts series. While you can read this as a standalone, I don't recommend that as all of the books build on the storylines of the previous books. There is violence and sex so 18+. The storyline is better than average for this type of book. And you really get to know the characters if you have read the series. Definitely worth taking the time to read.

This series keeps getting better and better. I love Hunter and Gabby together. Their chemistry kept me entertained through the whole book. Can’t wait to see what’s next from Mallory.

Book 7 is a 10! Book 7 already? One of the nice things about these books is that you don’t have to have read earlier books in order to jump right in and follow the story. Hunter is a hunk, Gabby is an interesting character, and the two of them together are exciting and lots of fun! I don’t want to give away any of the surprises, but again, Mallory scores with great character development, interesting story line, fast paced action, and some surprises along the way. If you have read other books in this Stolen Hearts series, you will be happy to see some of your old friends. If you are new to this series, you’re going to want to read the six earlier stories!

Hunter and Gabby have a complicated past that has kept them apart for ten years but they are reunited when Gabby sends out a false call for help to Hart Securities. What began as a ruse to lure Hunter to her side for a face to face turns into a real threat when someone tries to kill her. The old attraction is stronger than ever as they try to find out who is behind the attempts on Gabby's life. Once they have the answer to that, the only question left will be whether they have any chance for a future together. The Deadly Thief is another finely written, page turning, steamy romantic suspense story by one of my favorite authors, Mallory Crowe. The recurring characters from the other books in the series are mostly all present along with the rich history they bring that really makes this story come alive. I couldn't put it down and I can't wait for the next book. I loved it. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Good book! Was a quick read. I love books that have romance and are filled with the perfect amount of drama. Its a great story. Hunter has been part of the group for a while. He crossed paths with Gabby briefly. Gabby is in trouble and reaches out to Hunter in the most awful way but it turns out the best for her. Gabby was in a awful situation due to her father and now someone is trying to kill her, Hunter is involved somehow so he helps solve it. Its a great book. Its awesome to keep tabs on past characters. No cheating, no cliffhanger and a HEA. I read this book voluntarily for an honest review. I excited to see what other characters she writes about. Enjoy!

ARC for honest review with no compensation 4.5 stars Deadly Thief is book 7 of the Stolen Hearts series by Mallory Crowe and of course, its another edge of your seat book! This story is about another Hart Security specialist, Hunter Cornell and Gabby Cooper who knew him a long time ago and the reconnection of a second change to right the wrongs from the past and move forward to the chance at love...except the past just keeps coming back to mess with them... Suspense, danger, hot romance, twists and turns keeps you turning the pages to find out what happens next...

The tough guys in this series all remind me of the Grinch. They're all tough, bad guys on the outside, but once they meet their love match, the outer coating of their hearts start melting away until they become the romantic Heroes we love! This formula holds true for Hunter as he succumbs to his hidden feelings for Gabby, our heroine, whose life he saved once before when they were teenagers. Instead of flashback scenes or chapters, the past was revealed through dialogue and explanation which worked well for this story. The story is told from a dual POV so we understand what happened from both perspectives and their respective reactions. This story held some of the mysterious unknown secrets from the previous books in the series, but then everything moved too fast at the end. I would have like more light shed on the villain which could have been explained during the climax of the book, nor was it covered in the Epilogue. Did some of these enlightening chapters get edited out?

****I voluntarily received an Advance Review Copy of this book in exchange for my honest review**** Another great addition to a wonderful series. Hunter thought his past was buried and forgotten but it reared its ugly head with just one phone call from an old lover. Mallory never disappoint her readers with her amazing writing skills and it is displayed in this novel. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

quick paced and edgy THE DEADLY THIEF is the seventh instalment in Mallory Crowe’s contemporary, adult STOLEN HEARTS romantic, suspense series currently focusing on the men and women who work for Hart Security. This is security specialist and enforcer Hunter Cornell and florist Gabby Cooper’s story line. THE DEADLY THIEF can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Gabby and Hunter) THE DEADLY THIEF follows Gabby as she tries to reconnect with the man she hasn’t seen in close to ten years. Discovering her father wasn’t the man she thought him to be, Gabby found herself in a precarious position, when Hunter landed in prison trying to protect our story line heroine. Fast forward to present day wherein Gabby contacts Hunter in the hopes of starting anew but Hunter’s return to Brighton, Michigan alerts the people formerly in charge. What ensues is the rekindling relationship, and romance between Gabby and Hunter, and the potential fall-out when Gabby is targeted by someone from her past. Gabby Cooper knows loss including the loss of her friend ten years earlier. Hunter found himself charged with murder trying to protect our story line heroine, a charge Gabby tried desperately to have withdrawn. Hunter Cornell has never stopped thinking about the woman he left behind but returning to Brighton meant placing himself and Gabby in the direct line of fire. The relationship between Gabby and Hunter is a second chance of sorts-although thier earlier friendship never crossed over the line Gabby and Hunter’s attraction to one another was palpable and electric. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Gabby’s friend Kate, as well as the reintroduction of the head of Hart Securities, Toni and Scott Hart, and team members Melissa Slade and Gage. Melissa and Gage’s story line is next in The Arrogant Thief. THE DEADLY THIEF is a quick paced and edgy story line with a little bit of suspense, romance and danger. The premise is energetic; the characters are dynamic and colorful; the romance is provocative and intense. THE DEADLY THIEF is a fantastic addition to Mallory Crowe’s STOLEN HEARTS romantic, suspense series.

Loved reading the amazing and outstanding seventh book in the Stolen Hearts series. When Gabby contacts Hunter, he shows up, she makes a pass at him, he turns her down, she gets attacked, Hunter saves her life, and whisks her off to safety. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written, and full of romance, mystery, and intrigue.

Danger, Intrigue and Romance... I love this series and each book brings you a closer look at a specific character! Within this tale, we get to see Hunter's story! When Gabby calls out for help, Hunter does not hesitate to go even though he has not seen her in 10 years. I loved this fast paced story! It had my attention from the very first page! Great balance of action, suspense and romance! I really enjoyed seeing how things turned out... left me with a smile on my face! :)

The Deadly Thief is a terrific addition to the Stolen Heart series. Hunter and Gabby are an awesome couple. I didn't know Hunter had it in him to do as much talking as he did in this story. He's always been the strong, silent type. Gabby talks too much when she gets nervous--a trait I can totally relate to. Gabby is extremely naive considering all that has happened in her life but she didn't back down when things came to a climax. I only gave the story 4 stars because I felt the ending was too rushed and anticlimactic. I don't write spoilers so... What had the villain been doing the last 10 years? Why was he just now after Gabby? How had she not seen him in town? The epilogue, IMO, didn't wrap things up nearly enough. That being said, I still urge you to read the Stolen Hearts series and Deadly Thief. I have really enjoyed these well-written page-turners. Each story is a standalone but you will get more enjoyment if you read them in order.

A delightfully deceitful, wicked & deliciously sinful read Gabby has been cheated on & divorced. Even with her best friends encouragement she can't seem to move on & start dating again. Weirdly, it has nothing to with her marriage ending & everything to do with the young man who saved her life & was unjustly jailed for it, a decade before. Her 'knight in shining armour', Hunter, holds her heart still even though they didn't even get to share a kiss!! Hunter is given an email that has come in at his employers, Hart Securities, with him named specifically on it!! As soon as he sees who's its from & that his Gabby is in trouble he informs Melissa Slade he's taking off for a few days & searches Gabby out so he can do what needs to be done to protect her!! It's made clear fairly quickly that Gabby, even though she confesses her email saying she was in danger was a scam to reconnect with him, is in fact in danger!! An attempt is made on her life & this sets off not just Hunter's Alpha protector genes but also sets in motion Hart Securities newest case!! I was easily lost in this delicious read, I needed the escapism so couldn't be happier with this easy & sexy read It was lovely reading a women as fiercely protective as our Alpha Heroes are. Gabby was completely focused on Hunter being safe & not risking himself ever again for her or anyone else This is an easy, often tough & snarky, sexy, fun, steamy & above all enjoyable series!!! I can't believe there's only one book left I highly recommend this & the previous books. They're a fab set of books Debbie, 1970, UK

This is the next installment of the Stolen Hearts series and it's a good one! It can be read as a stand alone but I think if you read the series you will enjoy it more. The Deadly Thief tells the story of Hunter and Gabby. They have not seen each other in over ten years when Hunter was sent to prison for killing the man who was trying to kill Gabby. It grabbed me from the beginning and I didn't stop reading till I was done with it. All in one day! This is a well written story that flows and has well developed characters along with suspense, mystery, action, romance, and some funny banter between the characters. One of my favorite lines is Toni talking about how it has "changed from a attempted murder investigation to a full-blown murder" and Gabby's thought is she" really wishes that Toni didn't seem so happy about that." I was laughing out loud. I recommend this book, series, and author! You will not be disappointed! I volunteered to read a pre-released copy for my honest opinion. And that opinion is, It's a really good story (series) that you need to read.

I really enjoyed this book. This is actually my favorite in the series. It's a good second chance story.

Second Chance Romance. Gabby gets in touch with the man who saved her life ten years previously and all hell breaks loose! A good, fast read, with mystery and lots of action. Recommended read. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A fast paced read. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer. This book can be read as a standalone, but I know I enjoyed it more by having read the rest of the books in the series. At minimum, read Toni's book first, book 4, The Reluctant Thief. That will help with understanding the basis for this story. Not necessary, but a nice enhancement. Hunter and Gabby's story is full of action, intigue, suspense, and romance in the side. I was somewhat surprised by the ending. I am looking forward to Gage's book. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy.
