descriptionNot a fan of this cover. It's not a very good representation of the story. The couple on this cover could not look LESS royal if they tried! *lol*description

descriptionThis one was OK for me. Maybe slightly more than OK. I think part of the fault lies with me. I thought this could be read as a standalone, but the couple featured are already in love and married. I felt a bit like I was dropped into the middle of a story. I have not (yet) read book one and two (I did read book three), but I am guessing the whole

Rowan and Ava just get better luv them.

I really wanted more of Ava and Rowan. Since the first book I ve luvd them both. This book had a lil bit of a darker theme to it i think and from the prologue I was hooked. Once i started this book i couldnt put it down it killed me when sleep or really life got in the way. My heart went out to Ava so much she as been through so much growing up and even though things are great now she is with Rowan the King
4 dirty passionate stars

The King and Queen are back, and boy do they have a story to tell ... I loved them when I first met them so to finally have a book focused on them <3 <3 <3

Who would have ever thought that underneath the crown, there was all that and then some. These two burned up the pages with their brand of passion and games.

Ava's past has come back to haunt her. "Survivor’s guilt?", is something you can't easily run away from especially when the monster under your bed decides

Review @ Midnight Romance

First, I wanna thanks to the author for gave me this ARC. I'm so excited for more Rowan and Ava in action since the first book. I don't think this could be read as a standalone because there are so much things about this couple that you should know. A bit recap; Ava and Zelda Wilder were thieves who got blackmail to seduced the Monagasco princes. Zelda supposed to be with the crown prince instead she fall for the other brother. Fate has

5 Deliciously Hot Royal Stars!

When Tia Louise dropped this series I was totally intrigued with the idea of wild, common thief sisters who have used their looks and smarts to survive their less than stellar childhood. Ava and Zelda Wilder completely stole the hearts of Monagasco’s royal princes and each did their best to overcome their dangerous pasts in hopes to have a happy ever after. Along the way this author delivered some of the hottest romances to her readers.

Dirty Thief was dirty delicious!

I hadn't read the previous books in the Dirty Players series, but at this point, I really wish I had. Not because I didn't know what had previously happened. The story explained quite well the backstories of the characters, and I wasn't confused in the least. I wish I'd read the books because Dirty Thief was a great read!

Rowan and Ava are an exceptional couple! Their relationship was pure fire and heat from the get-go, and I was beyond intrigued. They each

I get so freaking giddy when Tia Louise gives us a new romance, and when DIRTY THIEF popped up on my Kindle, I just knew it was going to be a GREAT night! To say I was THRILLED that we were getting more Rowan and Ava, would be an absolute understatement. These two beautiful characters intrigued me from the very beginning, and never really left my heart, so I was SO EXCITED to dive in! DIRTY THIEF is book four in the SCORCHING HOT romance series, DIRTY PLAYERS, but it can be read as a standalone. ...more
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

This book is explosively sexy right out of the gates mostly because Rowan and Ava's relationship was established and then further developed in the first three books of this series: The Prince and the Player, A Player for a Princess and Dirty Dealers. I highly recommend you read these first to have a grasp of this couple's beginning.

Ava Wilder-Tate is living a fairytale life. She's the Queen Regent of a small coastal nation between France and Italy. To say she comes from humble beginnings would

Original review on Julalicious Book Paradise

If you love a hot and sexy read, I would suggest you go with Tia Louise’s The Dirty Players series. Dirty Thief is the 4th book of this series and it turns around Rowan and Ava.

Please, do read the first three books before getting to this one because you will be spoiled. You could read this book as a standalone, but preferably, you should definitely read from the beginning of the series. If you continue to read my review, you might get some spoilers

I'll start by saying this is part of a series and you really will not get the full impact of this story unless you read at least the first two books in the series before jumping into this one.

Louise returns to her Dirty Player world with Dirty Thief and it is just as fun and sexy as the previous three books. We finally get to spend more time with Ava, the beautiful, spunky Thief that stole the heart of King Rowan. If you're like me, you probably loved them in the previous books. I was

I love these royal brothers! I love these sneaky sisters! Together as couples they make for fantastic stories.
Rowan and Ava are Smokin' HOT!!! Seriously this book should have an alternate title Dirty King!!
When Ava's past comes back to haunt her the royal brothers take control wanting revenge for any pain their ladies suffered. But lord knows sneaky Ava won't just sit back. I loved seeing Ava's passion to help others, she could let royal life go to her head but she doesn't, she leads with heart

4 Suspenseful CROWNS

From the opening pages, suspense looms over Ava and Rowan. Her past quickly catching up to her, and Rowan trying desperately to protect her makes for an entertaining story.

Rowan is the perfect hero, willing to do anything to protect Ava, to make her feel loved, and to make her happy. His sole purpose seems to be satisfying her in every way. Ava, having a criminal and difficult past, has used her new powers as Queen Regent to better the lives of those around

I have loved this entire series because it's not just love stories. These have suspense, drama, humor, and so much hotness rolled into one!!!

As always Tia Louise delivers a scorching hot story with an edge of danger and mystery. This series is one of my favorites and I hate to know it could be ending. I love the excitement, danger, romance and of course those hot, steamy scenes.

Although this book can be read as a stand-alone I highly recommend you reading the others in the series. This story is a continuation of Ava and Rowan’s enchanting story. These two are sweet and sexy with a kinky side mixed in. I absolutely love them together.

Sizzling hot & suspenseful!!! Love Rowan & Ava!!

This book continues showing how steamy these two are with a twist of suspense when Ava past catches up to her. Rowan as always is ready to do everything in his power to defend his queen.

They both fight against her past and we also see the love just as hot between these two. We also see additional progress in their relationship.

Great steamy and suspenseful read!! I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

I cannot get enough of this series and every time I think I know where these books are going a curveball is thrown. Dirty Thief is the 4th in the series and while it can be read as a stand alone I would encourage you to go back from the beginning. Rowan and Ava are the characters in this book and they definitely don't have the typical fairy tale story. Tia Louise writes a great story incorporating the romance between Rowan and Ava and lots of details with all the other goings on. This book had ...more

This was a great ending to the series, as you have come to expect with any of Tia Louise's books there is a ton of sexy times between King Rowan and Queen Regent Ava, and on top of all of that is there is mystery/suspense/action/adventure that will keep you at the edge of your seat.

It’s no secret I’m a HUGE Tia Louise fan. I love her writing, and I love her hot and sexy “Dirty Players Series.” It’s the perfect blend between an amazing plot, intriguing characters you will fall in love with, and some hot sexy scenes.

I was super excited for Dirty Thief. I couldn’t wait to read about Ava and Rowan. When we met them in the first two books of the series, I was hoping for them to have their own book. Granted, I thought we might get the story of how they met in their POV, so

This is book 4 in this series. You really need to read them all to follow the cast of people. I did and I was having to go back and forth a couple of times. This book is a bit on the darker side of this series. There is lust, mystery, suspense and love. So much love. I loved this author's writing and felt like I was right there watching it unfold. I felt like I was a part of this book.

Dirty Thief by Tia Louise is the fourth book in the Dirty Players series. Though it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the first three books before reading this. As this series continues, the books keep getting better and better but Tia Louise really outdid herself with Dirty Thief.

Dirty Thief is a continuation of Rowan and Ava’s story. We met them in A Prince and A Player and watched them fall in love. But a secret that Ava has been keeping for years could ruin

4.5 star Review of Dirty Thief (Dirty Players #4) by Tia Louise

If you loved The Prince & The Player then you are certainly going to enjoy Dirty Thief. Although not totally necessary, I would read the first book prior to reading Dirty Thief.

The chemistry between Rowan and Ava continues to sizzle; throw in a healthy dose of suspense, mystery and danger and you are in for one heck of a roller coaster ride. This book is a little edgier and I will say that Rowan in “command” mode is certainly

So Tia Louise is an automatic one click author for me. I love the way she develops characters and interweaves them from book to book within a series BUT keeps them as a stand alone. This book is no different. We first meet King Rowan and Ava in the Prince and the Player, where Ava's sister is supposed to seduce Rowan. Obviously that doesn't happen because Rowan falls for Ava and they are married not too long after. So that's how they got to this point.
This book explores their relationship and

Public Reader Announcement: To really enjoy this story, I insist that you read Book 1, The Prince & the Player. I think you will miss out on the dynamic of Rowan and Ava. You do get great back story and re-introductions to the secondary characters from Ms Louise in this book. But to get how they fell in love and got to where their lives are now, I insist you read at a minimum Book 1.

So, what did I think of the continuation of Rowan and Ava's love story? As always when Tia Louise writes a
