Thief is A. Zavarelli’s pièce de résistance!!

I cried so many tears when I found out this series was ending. I’ve collected so many book boyfriends over the course of reading the first 4 books in the series. So, it’s bittersweet to see it come to end, however I’m really happy with the way things turn out.

Nikolai and Tanaka’s story is one of the sweetest of the series. Don’t get me wrong. It’s still a dark romance, but I really liked these two together. The circumstances leading to their coupling is unconventional, but there’s no doubt about how strongly they feel for one another.

What I loved: Nikolai, obvi!

Tall, fearsome, clear blue vibrant eyes, and a dirty mouth. I was goner from the very first word. He’s ruthless and certainly isn’t a traditional romance hero, but I love him!

The sacrifices. I won’t go into details, because spoilers… But I love when characters are willing to do whatever it takes to attain the love they seek.

And last but not least. Some of my absolute favorite BBFs make an appearance or two. EEEEEEPPPPPP!

Yes, I freely admit that I love fictional characters! Catching up always fabulous!

While I’m sad the series is ending, it’s been one of my favorites EVER! Grab this one as soon as you can. It’s a fabulous ending to an amazing series.

A fitting end to a fantastic series!


Thief – A. Zavarelli


I’m a good girl.

I live by a code that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.

But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words.

You belong to me now.

He’s Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.

And what he wanted was me.

He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls you have to watch out for.

I’m a dangerous man.

I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.

She’s a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral.

It’s a shame to destroy precious things.

But this is what bad men do.

Note: this book contains dark subject matter, please read at your own discretion. This is a full length standalone that can be read in any order within the series.
