I’m a good girl.

I live by a code that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.

But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words.

You belong to me now.

He's Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.

And what he wanted was me.

He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is, sometimes it’s the good girls you have to watch out for. 

I’m a dangerous man.

I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.

She’s a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner, and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral.

It’s a shame to destroy precious things.

But this is what bad men do.

He likes to break me so he can put me back together again". 

“Thief is the final book in the Boston Underworld series and if you’re a fan of this series, then I’m sure that reading this one will be extremely bittersweet. From the underbelly world of the Russian Mafia, to the unexpected deadly circumstances that will make or break the brotherhood, this story will have you right in the front seat whether you want to or not.

Tanaka has always had one dream and that was to become a ballet dancer. Being married off and force to give up the one thing that keeps her happy is not something she’s looking forward to, but when you come from a family like hers, that is the plan. After a devastating sabotage that left her in the arms of the enemy, Tanaka must now adapt to her new life: Prisoner.

Nickolai is owed a debt and when you owe him something, it’s superficial for your health that you pay the man. Taking Tanaka as hostage was never high on his list but in his world, you don’t get respect by being nice. You instill fear and then comes the power. But Nickolai's newest acquisition is more than he could’ve ever bargained for.

I liked and disliked certain parts of this book. I loved Nickolai’s character in the beginning and how he handled his business. He was ruthless when it came to everything but there was always a soft spot of Tanaka whether he wanted to admit or not and I liked seeing that about him. What I didn’t like was the constant back and forth when it came to his relationship with Tanaka. It felt out of control in a way and even though sexual tension was a big part of their way, I didn’t feel that strong lifelong connection for them. Maybe it’s because this was the first book I read in the series but it just wasn’t there for me. 

As I said before, if you’re a fan of this series, then I’m sure you’re going to love this one. 


The first thing I always notice about a person is their posture. I was raised to believe that good posture conveys good manners, as well as respect for those around you. Nikolai carries his posture like a casual ‘f#ck you’ to everyone around him. There is no decorum in his leather jacket, jeans, or his haphazardly laced motorcycle boots. Everything he wears is black, but the small glimpse of skin beneath is a riot of colors. Tattoos cover every inch of his exposed skin, including his throat.
I’m not sure which is more offensive- the ink or the faux hawk atop his head. This is not the way you attend a ballet, nor is he the type of man I expect my father to keep company with.
“Tanaka.” He reaches for my hand and kisses it in a way that few men would ever dare to do in my father’s presence. “You dance beautifully.”
The words are unmistakably accented. Russian. And I’m struggling to maintain my composure while making sense of this situation. My father has always been protective of me. His own men know better than to speak to me or look at me, but for this stranger, somehow, it’s okay.
My manners, at least, are still intact, so I reply as I should. “You’ve seen me dance?”
Nikolai flashes a boyish smile in contrast to the deepness of his blue-green eyes. “I like to invest my time in the arts.”
