Cat’s Review of A Stolen Heart (Antonello Brothers) by Kayelle Allen @kayelleallen @TTCBooksandmore
When he rescues a half-human orphan, a glorified space pirate turned entrepreneur sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to topple the powerful Thieves' Guild he once led.
Multiple layers of conspiracy unfold, reaching all the way to Luc's immortal ex--the king. Behind each solved mystery looms an unseen foe, undoing the good Luc accomplishes. For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he'll put the toddler at risk.
At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he's coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves' Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child's training?
A hard choice for any man.
For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.
A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart...

This is part of a series but can stand alone just fine though if you read in this order you understand the characters better. A Stolen Heart, Bro, At the Mercy of Her Pleasure, For Women Only.
I did read this out of order ad read At the Mercy of Her Pleasure which was Senth’s story and this one helps you understand his and Luc’s relationship much better. It also shows the softness in this hard, monster of a man and I absolutely loved it.
Everything about this story is great. And isn't this cover so cute! The characters are amazing, and you can’t help but fall in love with all of them. The storyline is compelling and keeps you pulled in, (because little baby Senthys is so adorable) There are some twists and lots of action. The world-building is amazing. (I am not a sci-fi buff and these books have me absolutely hooked! I bought all of them and joined Kayelle’s newsletter and group to get the freebies. That is how good this book is) I can’t decide if I am going to read Bro next which is suggested for best enjoyment or Bringer of Chaos ( Pietas story)Again for me to be so excited over a sci-fi book it's good!
Now I had two tiny issues. One there were a few unanswered questions, but I didn’t take off since I am sure this is Pieta’s story. The other is the language of the Kin and other words and some of the names BUT that is my personal issues since I don’t lie hard to pronounce names and stuff which is one reason I seldom read sci-fi since that is integral to the worldbuilding so again my personal problem and I don’t take off for that.
