There are books that you read and they fill you with joy. There are books that consume you and it’s all you can do to turn those pages to see what is going to happen next to the people that have taken over your life and have residence in your heart.
Then there are books like this when the characters and story take on a life of their own, grab you by the throat and pour all those dark emotions, obsessive compulsions and mind numbing, spare no one and burn-it-to-the-ground passion into your very soul and leave you devastated. That was Steal You. The Keeper and his Little Bird left me speechless, shaking and asking myself as I turned the page and read the last word: Am I that crazy, too?
Their relationship is so very forbidden. He’s a professor and she’s his student. He’s had his eye on her for a while. He’s determined. She’s a good girl, but every good girl has a bad side. Still some have a streak of crazy. Xander saw that streak, reveled in it and watched it grow. Lizith was the perfect submissive, a bird held captive in the cage of her keeper even after her beloved keeper was no longer around.
The twists, turns and oh-my-god moments in this story left me with my hand over my mouth in shock, screaming at my kindle or clutching at my throat. A few times I stepped away from my kindle because I felt like my device was on fire from witnessing some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read. And still the moments that I thought to myself that Xander and Lizith were absolutely insane and that I would just walk away for good, I found myself pulled in and turning those pages once again.
Kayla and CC have written this book so flawlessly, so seamlessly that there is no way to know that two people co-authored this tale. Two authors with one heart and one very tangled soul. This book is utterly brilliant, dark from its roots to the tips of its branches and so captivating that I long for more… just more. It is beautifully written and a roller coaster ride that I wasn’t even prepared for.
So very well done! Congratulations, ladies. SIX STARS!
I was a good girl.
Until you made me love you.
You trained me to be your pretty little bird,
my feathers spreading under your attention and praise.
You promised you’d leave her.
Swore it was me you wanted more than life.
But then you broke my wings and silenced my song,
and you became my obsession.
I’ve spent years trying to figure out a way to change your mind,
to win back your heart.
But in this moment of desperation,
my mind leaves me.
And I’ll just

“Lizith is a freaking psycho genius, and I LOVED THIS CHARACTER SO HARD!! What a twisted couple these authors have birthed in Steal You. So much so that I wonder if they need some sort of professional evaluation conducted just to be sure they are okay to be left unsupervised. Steal You left me wanting more of Lizith and her brilliant cray-cray mind!”
