You're so sweet, Candi.
You don’t belong in my world.

Ok, wooooowwwwww. I am pledging my book love to Loki Renard right right now. This book killed me, laughed so hard. Candi and her friends were just so funny, and their reactions were spot on. Candi was a bit of a handful, and when I say a bit, I mean a huge handful. So damn funny. I really think Dante is the only guy that could handle her, and handle her he does. This book kept me glued to the pages, it was just that good and I will definitely read it again.

This has Ms. Renard's:

1) Trademark humor: “The nice young man I spoke to earlier told me you were at a bible camp. I never thought you’d go back to one of those after what happened in sixth grade, remember we had to pick you up?”

2) Trademark obsession with barely pubescent young women and older men: Candi is 18 and a college freshmen (btw Ms. Renard -- college students in the US have health insurance).

3) Trademark obsession with reproduction (though this one doesn't emphasize it as much as the o

WARNING: once begun, this story will OWN YOU!
Loki Renard is one of my top ten indie authors. Every story is so completely different from the one preceding it, I am always amazed and never know where she’s going to take me. Yet, I am always very glad I get to come along for the ride. Her prose is eloquent and descriptive; so good that I feel like that proverbial fly, but one with mind meld powers which allow me to hear what the characters are thinking and feeling. In addition, author Renard intro

I have to be honest, when I originally started Stealing Candi, I fully expected a whole different story. I'm not saying it was a bad thing, who doesn't love to be surprised in their stories?! I mean there's this spoiled girl, Candi, who stole a couple cases of Dante's liquor with her friends, never expecting the series of events afterwards. See, there's a bit more to those cases, so Dante & his boys are coming for her, especially since the booze was stolen from her party so she couldn't retu ...more

Consider yourself stolen. You're so sweet Candi. You don't belong in my world. I don't belong in yours. But the moment I set eyes on you, you were mine. You took something from me. So I'm going to take something too: You.

Candi is a college girl that carries around some secrets. However one night she decides to steal some liquor bottles or cases for a party but decides it just might not need to be use

Oh wow, this story was a riot! It initially seems like some hardened gangster teaching a spoiled brat a lesson, but it's more than that. From the outside, Candi looks like a stereotypical bimbo cheerleader coed-but she's also a klepto. Dante seems like some brutal gang member-but he's immediately hooked by this little nitwit thief. Despite her dumb decisions, I really did enjoy Candi's character, and hers and Dante's head butting had me laughing. Every scrape she gets into, he's after her, and s ...more

As long as you go in with the right expectations..... will enjoy this.At first I thought I was getting a dark captive romance ,so therefore I thought the storyline was a bit silly unrealistic and even disappointing....the heroine's actions borderline ludicrous.
Then I quickly began to realize the story was more of a sarcastic ,light hearted,dub con fairytale within the guise\setting of my favorite genre and as I chose to view this scenario as a twist in the tale,I could relax

Candi steals, it's what she does but when she steals from Dante, her life changes drastically. Dante is a leader of men, not so nice men that do not so nice things but Candi is worse in some ways. Their story is, funny and pathetic but in every way entertaining to read. Candi just can't seem to help herself, she gets into more trouble so many times, I am surprised she doesn't pay the ultimate price. At one point, a cop comes to arrest her but ends up leaving her to Dante's devices, the cop just ...more

Loki Renard is one of my favorite authors and she writes such a fun mix of stories. They are all dirty, but some are super dark while others are a little lighter. This one falls somewhere in the middle.
Candi is impulsive, reckless, and has no sense of what makes a good girl and what makes a bad one. Dante is the exact opposite. He puts a lot of thought into everything he does, and he knows the difference between a good girl and a bad girl. He also knows exactly what to give each of them

I liked this book a lot. A compelling blend of intensity, heat, drama and humor is combined with action, excitement and a bit of an OTT feel to create a book that will keep you highly entertained. At times this romance will have you shaking your head at the shenanigans that these two get up to, or smiling at the zany humor of it all or have have your heart melting at what a perfect pair this couple is. I thought that Candi and Dante's story had a very unique flavor to it, even though if you boil ...more

Yes! This book was fantastic. After Candi takes something very important from Dante, her whole world is turned upside down. She didn't realize just how spoiled and entitled she acted until she got a taste of the darker side of things. Dante is so hot! He's very matter of fact and doesn't put up with anything. But he's also got a soft side waiting to come out. Candi is hilarious! One of my favorite characters ever. I love her sass and her spunk. Even Dante's fierce personality can't knock her dow ...more

This is a totally fascinating, electrifying story of what a series of trials and tribulations can follow one stupid little mistake in judgement.
The two main characters immediately drew me into their dilemma. Dante gave hints of being way better than he acted at first, and Candi just continued to muddle my brain. Their interaction was HOT, punitive and exciting.
I really enjoyed the way these two characters (and the reader) slowly learned more and more about each other; and I am impressed by how

( ━☞◔‿ゝ◔`)━☞ Loki Rocks!

Loki is a prolific author, but I would count "Stealing Candi" as her best book so far this year (and that's saying something".

The set up is similar to an earlier novella, "Shamed" (which you can claim for free on Prolific Works and by signing up for newsletter, so go to do that!) but longer, hotter, with even more of her trademark quirkiness and sense of humor.

The characters here are just delightful. Your antihero hero is an honest to Hades *bad guy*. Really, he does ba

What do you get when you mix a pretty college girl who happens to steal liquor from a total bad a%%? One heck of a ride that’s for sure! Dante is such a bad guy, but you can see there’s more to him then just that. And Candi is more than just the the blonde college girl with the 4.0 gpa. She does bad things, even if that’s not what she set out to do. And he keeps cleaning up after her, even if that’s not what he usually does. They test each other and push each other, have incredible chemistry and ...more

Candi did the wrong thing. You never steal from him. Things go from bad to worse really fast. Now $3.4 mil is owed. He isn’t the type of man you steal from. But he wants more than his money, Dante plans to take Candi. There is something about her fire that he like and wants to keep her.

I have to say, I love the “innuendo” in the story at times. These two are meant to be together. Let’s go over some things. Candi is a good girl but she just happens to keep getting herself into trouble. You would

Outlaw love!

Hot damn! Candi and Danti are freaking hot together! One alpha, dangerous, dark, domineering and delicious will turn Candi's world upside down.
A woman of privilege, unaccountable, impulsive and just pure trouble will give Dante a run for his money!
The chemistry is incinderary, lust intense, and their will be deceptions, manipulations, discipline, surprises and revelations and a love that will make them complete! One brings out the dark the other brings out the light in each other. I

This was absolutely a surprise from start to finish. Loki Renard is one of my go to, one click authors. I love her characters, her storylines, her world building. "Stealing Candi" is no exception to any of those. There's a plot twist that had me flipping pages back and forth to make sure I read what I thought I read and the ending blew me away with it's shock value alone.

Stealing Candi is yet another engaging story from this author. I was drawn in from the first chapter and finished the book in a few hours. I loved it; I had fun reading it, and I highly recommend it.

As I sit down to read this book, I am so excited because Loki Rendard's books are so well written and entertaining I just can't wait to read them. Dante and Candi's story is action packed adventure about how one stupid decision can lead to a series of choices that lead to even more mistakes that can get you into serious trouble. The consequences of these actions help to unfold a tale of a page turning romance that burns up the pages, and totally enjoyable story.

Stealing Candi is a steamy, sexy, and brings a dark world to light. Candi is a college student who gets her hands caught in the cookie jar. To bad that cookie jar ends up being something horrible and Dante needs it back bad.

Dante thinks he is dealing with a sweet and honest college student, but what he finds is a trouble maker under all her sweetness.

Stealing Candi was a highly enjoyable story. I couldn't put my kindle down. Dante is so damn awesome we all should have one.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Stealing Candi by Loki Renard is the story of Candi and Dante.
Candi is a college age young women with a secret that ends up getting her to meet Dante. Dante is a tough alpha male leader of his group when he comes to take back something that was his that was taken. This leads him to meet Candi where his feelings go into taking mode.
This although had some dark moments also has some funny ones. I really hope to read more from this author soon!

I haven’t looked. Is this a rom com? If it isn’t, it should be. Candi is all sorts of sass rolled up into a bundle of pure entertainment. Candi Smith should be related to Murphy because she seems to be a walking amalgamation of screw ups and I cackled throughout most of it. Except for the naughty bits, which were hot. If you’re looking for a quick read that will put a smile on your face and get you a bit hot and bothered, then look no further than “Stealing Candi.”

Loki Renards's stories will never disappoint you with is touch of drama and suspense but also a lot of intense chemistry between the main characters. This is not an exception. The story of Candi and dante will steal you heart and captivate you from the first to the last page. Candi is always in trouble and she can't help herself, until one day Dante stops her and takes her in hand. Their journey is interesting and it is a fabulous story. I honestly volunteered to review an arc.

★ Highly entertaining antics ★

—>>> Candi is one female character whose outrageous actions bring on unforeseen consequences, especially at the hands of the mysterious Dante who appears suddenly into her life, a man not many would dare to cross in the first place. Somehow she manages to thwart and circumvent his control no matter how tightly he screws it on, and this might just be the death of him, but at the very least, Dante will never be bored with her. Loved this story!

I don’t even know what to say about this one. This story is very different from what I’m used to reading.
I liked the relationship between Candi and Dante. BUT I did not like how immature she was with every situation. He’s a leader of a giant gang/drug operation and he’s attracted to a young immature college girl?!?!? I don’t get it.
Overall, I would recommend this one.
