I liked this one. I really wish people who rate poorly would give some indication of why. But I thought this was a cute setup. Recently released from prison jewel thief is sent by his father to steal a bracelet. Said jewel thief doesn't want to be a thief anymore, but is trying to get in his dad's good graces. Wanting to impress his dad falls by the wayside when he meets the jewelry store owner. And they hit it off big time. Unfortunately, he has to come clean about why he's there, and she under ...more

A pretty good freebie. Good plot, emotions, characters, written well, and a little tugging. I wasn't immersed in this book but I did enjoy the reading of and had fun. Something for pretty much an anytime read. A little steamy, some suspense, good emotions, strong personalities, and a good ending. Definitely a good deal. Enjoy
I have mixed feelings about this book. I downloaded it free from Amazon, and it was decent, but I never really connected with the characters. The story had so much potential and the characters were likable, but because the story was a shorter story everything felt rushed.

Gotta get this off my chest: What's up with the guy on the cover? Can anyone say creepy?

Okay, on for the review: Celeste is trying to run a successful jewelry store while vying for the attention of a young police officer in her small tourist town. Instead, while scoping out the shop for an eventual burglary, Alex meets Celeste and the sparks fly.

Parts of Stolen Hearts were kinda hot. However, I can rarely get behind the whole "we just met but I'm madly in love with you" theme of so many romance

This could have been a cute little romance, but the gratuitous grungy sex kind of messed up that aspect. Sweet might have worked; passionate might have worked; but for me grungy just didn't work. It might have fit the ex-con hero, but was so out of character with the heroine that the raunch just seemed weird and thoughtlessly thrown together. Except for the grunge, it had a cute little story and likable hang-dog protagonists so that I wanted to hope for their HEA.

Eh this was ok. Nothing to write home about. Jewelry store owner buys a bracelet at an estate sale and has it in her store. Father sends his son fresh out of jail to steal it for him. Son and owner fall in love. Have some brief sex and decide after a few days together they are meant to be. Implausible. Unrealistic. Glad it was a short story.

I do not like the thief turned good guy story line so I probably shouldn't have read the book, but it was a freebie from Amazon Kindle books. If that is your favorite kind of story then this may be a good short story for you. I skimmed through the book because I just couldn't get into it and you just knew where it was going. The plot was too predictable and love found in 24 hours? NO.

I got this book on my Kindle when I went on a random free book downloading spree one day. A fun, quick read that was worth everything I didn't pay for it. It brought the exact level of entertainment I thought it would.I'm thankful the cover of the book didn't show up on my Kindle though. That man would have ruined everything.

I actually enjoyed this book, despite the horrendous cover. I feel like he didn't depict the male protagonist AT ALL. However, the story was actually decent.
I liked the characters. It had a plot and the sex was not too shabby.

I liked this little book! Thank goodness it was free on!

This story was not very believable, a little too cutesy. The characters are not very well drawn, the sex scenes are fairly short for an erotic romance. I guess it was OK, I liked the characters but not the plot.

Not worth buying, glad it was a freebie.

I would have never thought an ex-con could work as a hero but Alex is hot! He's so into Celeste and determined not to fall back into a life of crime. Celeste is so prim and proper that she intrigues him and their chemistry is great. A short hot read perfect for a lazy Saturday in bed.

Liked her historical writing so I tried her contemporary stuff. Not bad. I'd read her again.
This was a free book in the kindle store.
