The Agent’s Thief focuses on an established couple who are still finding their footing and have yet to put a name to their relationship. There’s a lot of jumping between timelines, but they are all clearly notated and, while a little jarring, definitely help make sense of the current scenes. Overall, I found the characters and plot of this book really playful. I think I expected something a bit more intense and serious when I started, but The Agent’s Thief had a high adrenaline plot that felt a little silly and over the top at times delivered in a fun, entertaining way. The characters were unique and likable with a fast-paced dialogue that kept things moving and a combustible physical chemistry between Fielding and Luke I couldn’t help but enjoy.
Despite feeling a bit upended with the timeline and the way the plot just took off from the start without a significant introduction, I couldn’t put The Agent’s Thief down, reading it almost entirely in one sitting. I don’t know if I will continue the series without a doubt, but I’m definitely intrigued enough to consider it. If you are looking for a fast-paced, hot read, I’d definitely recommend giving this book a try.

The writer's use of flashback is a brilliant way to accomplish two important functions in the story...it helps to develop our knowledge of the characters, and it fills in the gaps in the plot as we need them going forward. It made the story that much more satisfying to me, especially as the flashbacks also get closer and closer in time to the present moments in the story. I like the relationship between Luke and Fielding, and even if Fielding at first appears to be bratty and superficial, it soon becomes clear that he's a survivor and a force to be reckoned with, all of which makes him a more than worthy partner for the tough-but-tender Luke.
I don't always love when books are written with flashbacks, but this was written well and I appreciated how they were incorporated. I thought it actually made sense since we had already known them as a couple, and we were able to see them moving forward with today's challenges while still learning how they got to the point of true love.
Luke seemed like a badass in the last books, but it was fun to see him when Field was threatened. He was skirting that line of going just a little too far, and he had a great team behind him to help keep him from going too far. Meeting Guy was interesting, too. I'm hoping that we see more of him and that he can find his own HEA.

The main plot line has lovers Luke (the former.. maybe former... special agent) who runs his own security firm, and Fielding, the former thief who now works alongside Luke, who have fallen for each other ... wrapped up in an exciting action story. The novel is told with two overlapping plot lines.
The first plot has Luke and Fielding wrapped up in the nefarious actions of Fielding's family who have kidnapped him to help them complete a robbery. Luke then has to find Fielding, rescue him, and put an end to the criminal activities of Fielding's family and the local corrupt sheriff. Lots of action and suspense ensue!
The second plotline is the story of how Luke and Fielding got together and have fallen in love. Told through a series of flashbacks, mixed in with the first plotline, this is where the steam and heat factor come into play. (And its VERY steamy!!!)
Throw in some great secondary characters (I can't wait for Reece's story!!!) and you have the makings of a great novel. This is a fun, very hot, action caper. Its fairly low on the angst level for the plot... because you just know its going to end with a great HEA!
