In the Line of Duty, Book 4
Ex-military security specialist Luke Phillips would like nothing more than to walk away from his latest job, especially when he realizes the upscale market owner is the daughter of the man responsible for his year spent in juvie.
Except he promised the kids at the community center new and updated equipment. He has no choice but to keep to himself and try not to get mixed up with Emery Vincent. No matter how sweet and sexy she is.
One look at Luke starts Emery’s heart fluttering—along with other specific body parts. But she knows better than to act on those urges with a bad boy who looks at her like he’s been living off rations and she’s the market’s hot lunch special.
But when he rescues her and bandages up her scuffed knee, the heat between them explodes. While a future between them is impossible, hot, sweaty sex is guaranteed—at least until the job is done. Unless Luke can let go of the past and risk it all for love.
Warning: This book contains a smoking-hot ex-convict from the wrong side of thetracks, and a silver-spoon lady who gets oh, so much more than she bargained for when shehires him for a job.
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 enemy, though, quickly has him reconsidering some of his views. He’s as stubborn as he is hot so it is hard for him to let go completely and learn to trust, which isn’t going to lead to an easy HEA.
Emery’s been let down enough times not to expect much from people. While it seems like what they have is a no-strings affair, emotions get involved pretty quickly (of course). And as much as she wants to give her heart and trust to Luke, it isn’t easy for her. His hesitancy to let her all the way in doesn’t help things much so you know there is going to be trouble in paradise. The ending though had me all smiles and squishy feelings though, just the way I like it.
With smooth writing, delectable characters and sizzle between the sheets, Fox delivers another winner!
