The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen


DNF @ p.55

L.J. Shen is a very hit or miss author with me. Her writing is usually very clean and polished, but her characters, I can take or leave. I hated SPARROW, adored VICIOUS, and feel ambivalent about this book, THE KISS THIEF. I think my problem is that Francesca feels infantilized and Wolfe feels like he's trying too hard to be alpha. This is also a very fluffy mafia book, and personally, when I pick up a mafia book, I want it to be gritty. Edgy.

This isn't a bad book but it is also very much not my thing. I'll be passing it along but I'll still check out some of this author's other books.

2 to 2.5 out of 5 stars
