Review of Thief by Ava March

Thief (Brook Street, #1)Thief by Ava March

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5-4 stars

What an enjoyable little story.

Benjamin Parker, the youngest son of a Marquis, is being pressured to marry by his older siblings. Before the season starts though, he is determined to figure out, once and for all, if marriage is for him or if his attraction to men is real enough for him to consign himself to eternal bachelor-hood.
His decision leads him to a gambling hell he has been advised against, as those of ‘an unnatural persuasion’ frequents it. Here he meets Cavin Fox.

Cavin is a thief from the slums of east London. He frequents hells such as this one, in order to target wealthy men, sleep with them and steal their money afterwards. However, after their encounter he feels unable to to do so with Benjamin.

A series of misunderstandings leads to the two meeting up again and repeating their encounter. Both are equally enamoured wit the other, but they are from vastly different backgrounds and Cavin cannot see how anything could ever come of it.

This was a lovely little story, easily read and it kept me interested the whole way through. I did however need to suspend my beliefs quite a bit, as the story is not that realistic for the times in which it is set.
It was however, very enjoyable with an interesting story line and likable characters. I would definitely read more from this author.
