Stolen Away - Rin Sparrow The story is great, but the writing needs a LOT of editing. The thief is referred to as, alternately, the dark-haired man, the young man, the brunette, or the young brunette, about a hundred times each, and somehow reading "the young man" in the middle of a sex scene is just offputting. Meanwhile, the other main character is referred to as "the blond," oh, around three hundred times, because he only gets the one descriptive (except sometimes with an "e" as in "blonde"). Often "the blonde" is in the same sentence as the "young man". One typical sentence starts: "As the young man let himself into the blonde’s enormous bedroom..." I would have preferred a "he" or "him" over ninety percent of the time.

That said, the story did keep me reading, the plot was entertaining, the romance was sweet, and the secondary characters were nicely well rounded.
