Release Blitz! Thief By 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.
Okay I have to admit something.  I had started the first book of this series over a year ago and stepped away.  It is still sitting on my currently reading shelf waiting for me to go back to it.  I hadn’t put two and two together when I signed up to review Thief at first.  Now I haven’t read any of the other books, something I plan to rectify immediately as well as giving the first book another chance  but I was easily able to read Thief with little huh moments.

I have been on a dark kick lately and on a mafia kick as well and Thief satisfied both of those cravings.  I LOVED this book.  I messaged my friend who also had read it while I was reading it and most of my messages included WTF, OMG, and this mother fucker (referring to Nikolai and sometimes his brother Alexei but more Nikolai).  Tanaka at first, I will be honest kind of got on my last nerve but slowly I warmed up to her and my heart broke for what you learn about her past.  She is suffering, more than you think at first and when you read certain scenes, I know my heart broke for her and I had tears in my eyes. I love how she was sassy and a fighter but at the same time innocent as well. Nikolai is an asshole, a major one at times, hence the “this mother fucker” messages to my friend, but there is also more to him that we know.  I think there are still pieces of him that we weren’t fully shown in Thief, but he will piss you off, break your heart, turn you on, make you want to cry and start the whole process over again.  I hope in the future we get more of Nikolai and Tanaka in future books if there will be any because I think there is still more to learn about them.

Thief stole my heart, and I don’t want it back.  It was the dark I have been craving, it was the sexiness that I needed and it was a book that I devoured in a day. I can’t wait to read the other books and more in this series in the future.  Thief really needs to be on TBR lists now.

The first thing I always notice about a person is their posture. I was raised to believe that good posture conveys good manners, as well as respect for those around you. Nikolai carries his posture like a casual ‘f#ck you’ to everyone around him. There is no decorum in his leather jacket, jeans, or his haphazardly laced motorcycle boots. Everything he wears is black, but the small glimpse of skin beneath is a riot of colors. Tattoos cover every inch of his exposed skin, including his throat.
I’m not sure which is more offensive- the ink or the faux hawk atop his head. This is not the way you attend a ballet, nor is he the type of man I expect my father to keep company with.
“Tanaka.” He reaches for my hand and kisses it in a way that few men would ever dare to do in my father’s presence. “You dance beautifully.”
The words are unmistakably accented. Russian. And I’m struggling to maintain my composure while making sense of this situation. My father has always been protective of me. His own men know better than to speak to me or look at me, but for this stranger, somehow, it’s okay.
My manners, at least, are still intact, so I reply as I should. “You’ve seen me dance?”
Nikolai flashes a boyish smile in contrast to the deepness of his blue-green eyes. “I like to invest my time in the arts.”
