Summary

They say your first kiss should be earned.
Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.
They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.
Mine were broken before we left church.
They say your heart only beats for one man.
Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.
I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.
Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.
I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.
One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.

Stunning.

I an a huge fan of LJ Shen so I couldn’t wait to listen to this book. Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood were absolutely the perfect choice to narrate this book.

The story is hard hitting, emotional, heartbreaking, beautiful and stunning all at the same time. This is by far one of the best books I have ever listened to.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is simply stunning and well worth investing the time it takes to listen to it. I absolutely adored everything about this story.

Not for me ....

I should have checked out the "category" of this book. For some reason, I thought that it was literary fiction but it was "romance" which is not really my genre. So any comments I make should bear that in mind.
I found the story clichéd and distasteful. I might have faired better had I read rather than listened. Listening to graphic sex is a bit like being a voyeur; somehow reading is more private. And it is pretty graphic.
I found the storyline hard to believe and the characters deeply unpleasant. The narration was well performed but I found Savannah Peachwood too "breathy" and "perfect" and Stephen Dexter "insupportable" but that may because they portrayed their roles so well.
Final nail in the coffin - American accents! But what was I expecting from a book written by an American author?!
So, as I said, not for me but I had to finish it to find out what happened in the end (predictable but just checking!).

Chicago Mafia Princess + Chicago Senator

The Kiss Thief is told in dual pov with a guaranteed happily ever after. I absolutely love the cover & title of this romance. The narrative is fabulous. I absolutely love love love this audiobook. A definite relisten.

Narators Savannah Peachwood & Stephen Dexter's performance was flawless & impeccable. Pace & Tone flows through smoothly. I'm a huge fan of Stephen Dexter's work. Savannah Peachwood is new to me and I look forward to listening to other books narated by her.

My favourite audiobook of 2019.

Villian & Nemesis

First of all, the narrattion. WOW Savannah Peachwood and Stephen Dexter were beyond amazing, their performances truly magnificent. The way they express all the characters emotions, the tone and paced of their voices was simply great throughout the entire Audiobook.

I cannot express how much I loved this book, it was perfect from beginning to end, it's raw, emotional, with so much angst that will draw you nuts and won't be able to think of anything else but this story.

It is so amazingly well written, it's the right mix of a perfect historical book, but set into the modern world, that only L.J  Shen knows how to deliver it with so much perfection.

Wolfe Keaton and Francesca Rossi were amazing characters, with their complete different personalities, but they complemented each other so well. Their story wasn't easy, the pad to achieve their HEA full of many connflicts that teared them apart and many knots that tied them together. And you are left with no other choice but to suffer along the way with them, and be drowned in a pool of many emotions while trying to figure everything out.

*Wolfe Keaton was a kiss thief, but it wasn’t only a kiss that he stole. He stole my heart, too.*

A refreshing take this kind of genre. Thoroughly enjoyed it!!

This was a different flavour on a well known genre and I found it refreshing. Senator Wolfe Keaton confident arrogant handsome alpha, Francesca Rossi beautiful sheltered virgin. Both have their plans mapped out for their lives, one seeks revenge and the other seeks love and happiness with another. Unfortunately just like reality life happens and craps all over their plans.

The two constantly bicker and argue, distrust each other and that usual elephant in the room called miscommunication frequently stomps amongst them. However what neither can ignore is the passion and lust that ignites between them when in close proximity and especially when they touch.

I haven't read this author before, I will seek other book because this was well written.
