Must Read: Aya de Leon’s ‘Uptown Thief’ Gives Fresh Thrill Ride

uptown thiefIn this sexy, heart-stopping tale, one smart, sizzling mami robs the rich and protects the exploited–until one heist too many puts everything at stake.  The story opens up in a thrilling movie style scene that grabs you out of your seat. When it ends you are thoroughly invested in what happens next.

Marisol Rivera barely survived being abused with nowhere to turn. So there’s nothing she won’t do to keep her Lower East Side women’s health clinic open and give disadvantaged women new lives. Running an exclusive escort service for New York City’s rich and powerful 1 percent is the perfect way to bankroll her business–not to mention the perfect cover for robbing corrupt CEOs. And when times get even tougher, pulling a heist on a mega-billionaire will secure the clinic’s future–and her gorgeous crew’s–for good. . .

There’s just one problem: Marisol didn’t anticipate bad news even more dangerous than her curves. A seductive ex-cop who’s too close for comfort, and a powerful thug with a score to settle, are turning Marisol’s precise planning and seductive fail-safes into insidious traps. Now this beautiful modern-day Robin Hood will have to play some lethal wild cards without rules or limits to save those she loves–and live to steal another day. . .

The book gives you characters that you really care about. Main focus Marisol is the girl you cheer for even when you know she is slightly flawed. Author Aya de Leon gives a fresh voice to the literary world with her lead character. It is a modern urban Latina take on  Robinhood. This may be the companion book to The Dirty Social Girls book from a few years ago.

This is my first pick of the fall and I invite you to read and enjoy. It is Book One in the new series ‘Justice Hustlers’.

It is available in all formats!
