I can’t believe this is the last book in this series! It seems like I started Text 2 Lovers yesterday and now the building of these wonderful relationships between these awesome characters are already over. I loved this new funny side of K. Webster and getting to know J.D. Hollyfield’s writing and I do hope this is not the last collaboration we see with them because this was definitely a roller coaster of a novel!
Thieves 2 Lovers is the third (and final) installment of the 2 Lovers series and it’s a great time for a good old friends to lovers romance! Rey and Linc have been the best of friends since they met but there is always has been a stronger connection between them. Many things are in the way of them getting together as an actual couple but, of course, love always wins (even though, it has many obstacles in between!).
She’s everything I’m not. And somehow, that makes me want to be better for her.
These two amazing ladies created a wonderful list of characters! Rey and Linc are so funny, sexy as hell and emotional! I love their friendship and how it developed to an actual loving relationship. I do have to say though, at the start, I feel like I felt a stronger connection with Andie and Roman (Hate 2 Lovers) than I felt with Rey and Linc but it got better as the story went and I also believe it has to do with the newer themes in this story.
Lincoln makes me happy.
The happy that everyone wishes for.
Related to these themes, I do feel that Thieves 2 Lovers was the “darkest” in the series. Linc has had a very difficult past and now it’s coming back to him at full force. While I felt Rey was a bit annoying at the beginning (with the whole “I am not accepting my feelings for Linc” thing) I really enjoyed this dramatic part in the book and how it affected on the relationship between the main characters. Thieves 2 Lovers got extremely entertaining and emotional towards the end!
Everything about her and her world is mine. We don’t exist without the other. It’s Rey and Linc. Always. Thick as thieves.
What I enjoy most in a book (besides the relationship between the main couple) is when there is a group of friends and family in it. I loved seeing glimpses of Dani, Ram, Andie and Roman! They made this book even better for me. I love the familiarity between them and the many hilarious moments they gave us. And those fantastic moments at the end, made the ending in Thieves 2 Lovers absolutely perfect for me!
Love is a fucking rebel.
Therefore, I am rating Thieves 2 Lovers with 4 STARS because even though it did not quite reach my expectations (my extremely high expectations! lol), I really enjoyed how the story developed (especially towards the end) and how Rey and Linc (and all the others!) got their happily ever after. I can’t wait to see if K. Webster and J.D. Hollyfield write more collabs together (I hope so!) because I definitely enjoyed the heck out of this series!
