They say your first kiss should be earned.

Mine was stolen by a devil in a masquerade mask under the black Chicago sky.

They say the vows you take on your wedding day are sacred.

Mine were broken before we left church.

They say your heart only beats for one man.

Mine split and bled for two rivals who fought for it until the bitter end.

I was promised to Angelo Bandini, the heir to one of the most powerful families in the Chicago Outfit.

Then taken by Senator Wolfe Keaton, who held my father’s sins over his head to force me into marriage.

They say that all great love stories have a happy ending.

I, Francesca Rossi, found myself erasing and rewriting mine until the very last chapter.

One kiss.
Two men.
Three lives.
Entwined together.

And somewhere between these two men, I had to find my forever.


The Kiss Thief was hands down one of my most anticipated reads of 2019 and let me just tell you all that this book did not disappoint! L.J. Shen is without a doubt my go to author when I want a story to devour and she certainly had me falling down the rabbit hole with her latest release. This beautifully written story wholeheartedly captivated my heart and left me completely breathless. Even a week after finishing this story I still am at a loss for words and struggling to catch my breath every time I think back to Wolfe and Francesca’s unconventional love story.

If I was asked to describe this story in only one word it would have to be INTENSE! The intensity of this phenomenal tale tightly gripped my heart and had me so close to the edge that I wasn’t sure if I was going to fall off the face of the earth or collapse right where I was standing. Seriously it never eased up and I never did manage to catch my breath, but I don’t care because the emotions and angst I felt while inhaling Wolfe and Francesca’s story was one of the best rollercoaster rides of my entire life. Which is totally to be expected when you dive head first into one of L.J. Shen’s books. Although I have adored every single one of her past releases, this story has got to be her best book yet! This one will forever stay close to my heart and I am so glad it was a story written by one of my favorite authors!

Since I don’t want to give the storyline away I will just say that you all need to drop what you are doing and go one-click this book so hard! I mean it…GO DO IT RIGHT NOW! You will be in for one of the best reading experiences of your life when you read The Kiss Thief by L.J. Shen! Just trust me!
