This is a sweet short book. The story line is short. Min angst/ plot/ character developments. There is that insta lust/ love. I do like Luke. He is mischief. Handsome mischief. He is also optimist despite bad thing that happen to him.

This book can be categorize as novella since it is short.

4.0 RATING- I think Cathryn Fox is one of those authors that doesn't get enough attention from my GR friends. His Moment to Steal wasn't my favorite book of hers but overall I think the In the Line of Duty series is a pretty strong contemporary romance series. The writing is good and the steamy scenes are hot. It's definitely a series I'll stick with and I hope to branch out and read other series from this author to see if I like as much.

I'm rapidly becoming a Cathryn Fox fan and this story did not disappoint.  

Emery is running her father's grocery store on the upper end of town.  She is losing money and items and needs help bringing her books into the black.  In steps Luke to put in new security cameras and measures. Luke has a bad history with the store, but sets that aside to help Emery.  It's attraction at first site on both sides and they steam up the book while securing the store, her brother, his sister, the center etc.

His Moment to Steal by Cathryn Fox is another hot addition to her In the Line of Duty series. I have read and enjoyed the first three books and this one is equally as good. I really liked the main characters in this story because they were amazingly kind-hearted, down to earth, and always put the needs of the people they cared about ahead of their own.

Emery Vincent is a smart and beautiful woman who owns an upscale grocery store. She took it over from her father after he survived a heart attack

Every book in this series just keeps getting better and better! I have fallen in love with each of the characters in this series and with every one I read, I always wonder how the author can top herself. Each time, she proves that she totally can. Cathryn Fox does a fantastic job in mixing a great story with laugh out loud moments, endearing characters and sexy as sin dialogue.

"I'm going to tear your clothes off, put my hands and mouth all over your body, and then I'm going to take you. Hard. So
This was good.

I liked Emery - though I kept picturing all the 'emery board' jokes one could make.
I liked Luke - yeah 'nuff said. I liked him.

The only thing I didn't like? Emery's father. We weren't supposed to like him though.
Mostly I felt that the end (view spoiler)

I can't stop reading this series!

Oh the men in this series are simply to die for and the women who steal their hearts are even more amazing. Luke and Emery are such a beautiful pair and watching both of them learn to trust one another was beautiful.

First let me say I was given this ARC in exchange for my honest review. So here we go.....this is the 4th book in the Line of Duty series by this author. And I can unequivocally say this is by far the hottest most intense of the 4 books. And I LOVED every minute of it!

In this book you are introduced to Emery and Luke. Two people that have known of each other for several years but due to some circumstances that altered Luke's teen years, they've never interacted with each other. When they meet in

So with all the kind of dark and MC books I've been reading lately. I was ready for a lighter read. It feels like forever ago since I've read one of author Cathryn Fox's In The Line of Duty series books. And I have been patiently/impatiently waiting for this one.

     Oh ok I'll start with Luke. I love love love Luke. He's a sweet, sexy, dirty talking alpha male. His backstory is heartbreaking, I just wanted to hug him. And even after everything he's gone through he see's the good in everything a

I love these “In the Line of Duty” books. The guys are all Alpha and the women are spunky – my favorite kind of combination – and His Moment to Steal fits right in. Make sure you check out His Trouble in Tallulah and His Taste of Temptation.

If you take on the latest in the series, be prepared for some steam because the story is rough and coarse and sexy as hell, just like its hero. Luke is off-the-charts sexy but he’s carrying around a lot of baggage. Spending time with Emery, daughter of an old

Memories from all those years ago come flooding back to Luke as he realizes that he will be working for the family that made an example out of him by pressing charges for him stealing from their market instead of trying to find out why he needed to steal the food in the first place.
He didn't think that he could do it, but he made a promise to the kids at the community center and he intended on keeping it no matter how uncomfortable he felt.
Luke was pleasantly surprised that he was dealing with t

Just when I think I've read the best book in the series, I move on to the next book and find myself loving that one just as much. At this point, I can't pick a favorite! All of the stories are soo good and I love the fact that they all have some sort of forbidden element to them.

Luke is a former military consultant who now owns his own security company after leaving the armed forces. Set to meet with the owner of Taylor Market, he is memorized by a woman named Emery, who turns out to be the ow

LOVED this book!! It's the fourth in a series but easily read standalone. I haven't read the others yet but I sure will now!! This book is sizzling hot with an incredible story at it's core.

The last thing Luke Phillips wants to do is step foot back in the place that sent him to juvie years ago. But a job is a job and he's made promises he's not willing to break! To his delight, and probably downfall, the place is no longer run by the hateful old man but by his beautiful daughter Emery Vincent.

Well Damn. Just finished His Moment to Steal. I loved it! Loved the chemistry between Luke and Emery, loved what a good guy Luke was, broke my heart on how Emery viewed herself, and those steamy love scenes, be still my heart! I definitely got choked up when Jeremy's situation came out, we've all known kids with special needs, so it really tugs at your heartstrings when Luke has the compassion towards Jeremy that Emery has never seen before. Very touching story about two people who just need a c ...more

Perfect summer read!

This is the first time I read a book by Cathryn Fox. I really enjoyed her fourth book His Moment to Steal in her series In The Line of Duty! It was a cute story, fun to read and refreshing!

It tells the story of Luke and Emery. Luke, was a bad boy, who, in the past had been caught stealing by Emery's father, the owner of a store and sent to juvie. Now, a security specialist, he is hired by Emery, not knowing the problem existing between her father and him. But as soon as, she

You learn everything is not as it seems. Luke is one hot hero, but with the heart to go with it. I loved how he interacted with Emery's brother that alone puts him on my favorite book boyfriend list not to mention his bedroom skills. Just make sure to have a glass of something cold trust me you'll need it when reading those moments in the book. This book had the perfect balance of steam and story for me.

Very sweet story about two people from different backgrounds who, in order to find love as adults, have to overcome ther prejudices. I really enjoyed the story and the characters, the only thing I would have liked more would have been an apology from Emery's father to Luke for his behaviour. Although this is part of a series, it can be comfortably read as a standalone story. Recommended.

Do you believe in 2nd chances? Well if you don't now you might change your mind after reading this... Heart pounding, breath holding, tingle causing thrill of a ride! You'll be asking yourself and everyone else "Why don't real Luke's exist???" Happy reading : )

To me this wasn't one of those "Wow that was a great book!" Yes there are some great sex scenes, but overall after reading there were no standout moments it wasn't a bad book but in my eyes average nothing that stands out. Just my opinion.

Loved it!

These books are just getting better and better. Each one filled with morals and emotion. This book was no different. All it takes is trust and maybe a second chance to get everything you've ever wanted out of life.

If you want lot's of sex this is the book for you

I really wanted to give this book 2 stars because it's 80% percent sex and I skipped through a lot of it. I unfortunately like a good story when I purchase a book. This book did have enough story for me to give it 3 stars. I really enjoyed first 2 books in this series because of the storylines but last 2 have been more sex then story so I don't think I will purchase anymore of this series. Just to be clear
