Dirty Thief, an all new sexy and scandalous installment in the Dirty Players Series by Tia Louise is available now!
DIRTY * SEXY * SCANDALOUS
What do you get when you mix a brooding king with a sexy pickpocket? Not your usual fairy tale.
Ava Wilder is beautiful, she lives in a pink castle, and she’s a thief. Rowan Westringham Tate loves power, speed, and Ava.
Their romance is straight out of an erotic Cinderella story, until the one man Ava is running from shows up to claim what she stole—or to claim her.
Now Ava might be forced to take another thing to protect her happily ever after… A life.
I’m just about to text Rowan back when the door opens, and he’s standing in the entrance. His face is unreadable. He doesn’t enter. He only waits looking like the most gorgeous thing I’ve ever seen in a dark suit and tie. He’s still wearing the glasses he’ll occasionally put on when he’s reading, and I rise out of my chair, closing the laptop before I go to him.
“I’m sorry,”I say, reaching out for his hand.
He takes mine and raises it to his lips before pulling me closer.
“What’s troubling you, Ava?”
I look down at my shoes, awkwardness filling my stomach.
“You didn’t have tocome all the way over here.”
“Why are you having second thoughts about the baby?”
I take a deep breath and sigh, lifting my eyes to his.
“It just seems like everything is in such chaos. What makes us want to bring a child into this mess?”
His dark eyes soften as they hold mine, but he doesn’t answer immediately. I love that he doesn’t pat me on the head and tell me to stop being ridiculous. He takes my fears seriously.
“It’s our royal duty,”he finally says.
Now I’m frowning.
“That’s your only reason?”
He touches the side of my cheek with his thumb, and I wait.
“I’d also like to see what happens when we take half of you and mix it with half of me.”
My frown softens a little.
“I have dreamed of our babies.”
I remember my chubby, dark-haired daydreams.
“I expect we’ll have an overly analytical, extremely controlled little leader,” he says,and I sigh and nod. “Or a thief who steals cars and races them away.”
I push his arm, ready to storm across the room.

Dirty * Sexy * Scandalous…..Those words definitely describe this book.
This is the second book in this series that I have read and just like Dirty Dealers this was captivating and suspenseful read.
Dirty Thief is a standalone novel and can be read without reading any other books in this series. Although to truly appreciate Rowan and Ava I think The Prince and The Player should be read first. This story is like a continuation of their story. The storyline is different but this book holds some spoilers for The Prince and The Player and shows Rowan and Ava’s life as a married couple.
This story was filled with mystery, suspense, lies and betrayals….oh and ALOT of sexy times. I loved the storyline in this story that related to Ava’s past. It kept me on my toes and turning the pages, but what I didn’t enjoy was the amount of sex that was in this story. I know…WHAT!!! But yes I said it. I thought all the sex scenes started to take away from the major storyline of Ava’s past and all the suspenseful parts of the book. It got to be a little distracting. Now don’t get me wrong the chemistry between Rowan and Ava was off the charts HOT!!! I just wish there wasn’t as much in this book. This could’ve been a five star read for me had the sex been toned down a little.
Dirty Thief is told in Dual POV, so we get both sides of the story in this novel. I truly enjoyed that!! As I said this is Rowan and Ava’s story. In this book they are married and trying to run the country as the Royal Family, but still have a normal life as husband and wife. We get to see how this couple functions together running the day to day tasks, but also thinking about their future and producing an heir. While all this is going on they also have to face Ava’s past and what dangers that brings to their lives. You can truly feel the love that Rowan and Ava have for one another. I loved both of these characters!! Both fiercely independent, but also protective of the ones they love. I don’t want to say much more about this book, I feel this is one you need to experience for yourself.
I really enjoyed reading about Cal, Zelda and Belle in this book too. I loved the family bond all these characters have.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has already read The Prince and The Player. You are going to want to continue on with Rowan and Ava’s journey. If you haven’t read that book yet, don’t fret….you can still read this book and not miss out on anything. If you are a fan of a romantic suspense story, I think this is one you should give a try….I think many will enjoy this book.
