The Kiss Thief. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

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.

The Kiss Thief

Good but a bit slow!

I liked the story overall but it all moved along a bit too slow for me. This book is about Nineteen year old Francesca, a mob princess who is about to get engaged to her childhood sweetheart Angelo. However, Senator Wolfe Keaton swoops in after meeting her at a party and blackmails her father into an engagement and takes her away to his home that day. The Senator is intent on destroying her father, the leader of “The Outfit”.

The book is a slow burn romance with a lot of bickering between the two main characters, they take a long time to get to know each other, she gardens a lot and is a chain smoker which is pretty gross! Wolfe is pretty jealous of her love for Angelo, though he keeps saying he doesn’t really want a traditional relationship with her. When the book heats up it is pretty good. I guess I’m not a big slow burn fan.
