    One thought on “The Thief”

    1. Retired thief, Josephine Deveraux is blackmailed by an ex, back into the life to steal a notorious diamond. When she goes for her prize she is interrupted by Xavier Lambert, another thief who was supposed to be in jail after getting caught doing a heist a few years earlier.The diamond they both were after is the key to a terrorist plot. Xavier was after the jewel because he is working off his jail time as a member of an Elite Crimes Unit. Xavier is given permission to retrieve the diamond so he [...]

    2. I am a suckers for books about talented criminals working together. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I have watched movies like Oceans the classic to Catch a Thief and the list goes on so when I saw the chance to pick up advance copy from netgalley about a Elite Crimes Unit with talent criminal I couldn't help but myself.I guess I am giving it 3.50 stars because this series had great potential. The author might need to scale back the endless amount of characters that pop in and out [...]

    3. This book has potential but I'm honestly so disappointed by how it ended up playing out. The romance wasn't convincing to me and the plot itself was semi interesting but there were too many characters who were too vague. It set itself up quite abruptly, which would have worked better if the gaps had been followed through, but there were too many loose threads for me to buy into the romance and the connection between the two characters.

    4. Josephine has left her previous life of being a master thief to settle down in the country and live an honest, quiet life. Her retirement is disrupted by her ex-boyfriend who forces her into one last job. She didn’t count on going up against the one man who she emulated her career after.Xavier works for the Elite Crimes Unit, not exactly by choice, but he has accepted it as his life since he was caught in a heist. Working an easy job he was thrown off his game by a kiss out of nowhere.I loved [...]

    5. Hmm. Well, this had potential. It really did. I loved the concept of this book. And it started out fairly well. But then… the follow through just wasn’t there for me.The beginning and ending of The Thief were strong enough, but the middle portion got a bit murky. The overall plot itself was fine and easy to follow, but some more editing could have helped to pare it down. As it was, I found it easy to put down in favor of reading something else.Our main characters, Josephine and Xavier, weren [...]

    6. Unique paranormal stories created by Michele Hauf have kept me entertained for years, and I was excited to discover that she had written a suspenseful series. The Elite Crimes Unit solves white-collar offences, and the first book concerns two individuals whose lives take a drastic turn when they end up working together for the good of others. Though both once stole jewelry, neither did it to make a huge profit, and whatever they lifted often ended up helping someone less fortunate. Ms. Hauf alwa [...]

    7. Josephine Devereaux is a retired jewel thief, and after two years, an unwelcome ghost from the past resurfaces and not so kindly convinces her to steal a necklace: and Lincoln Blackwell is not a welcome sight. Josephine had been living quietly in the French countryside, but must return to Paris for the job, which will take place during a black tie charity ball. Unbeknownst to Josephine, she is not the only one after the piece of jewelry; so is legendary thief Xavier Lambert, known as Le Renard [...]

    8. 3.5 Stars!I found out about The Thief when one of my friends reviewed the second book in the series and I’m so glad I picked this up as it was a very fun read.Former jewel thief Josephine Deveraux retired two years ago and has been living with her cat in an old farmhouse in the French countryside. Despite how different her new life is, Josephine has been enjoying the quiet of the countryside. All of that changes when she’s blackmailed into going to Paris to steal a 180-carat diamond necklac [...]

    9. the thief should probably be called the thieves, because our two leads are both master burglars. xavier lambert, also known as le renard, has reformed somewhat after getting caught red-handed. now a reluctant member of the elite crimes unit, he is sent out on missions that require his particular skills.his current mission involves stealing a necklace with the recipe and target for a biological weapon etched on the diamonds. when josephine deveraux intercepts and distracts him during his mission [...]

    10. I really hate not liking books, it makes me feel pessimistic and petty. But I cannot say that I was too fond of this one.I have the same love for heists stories as the author. If there’s a movie about a convoluted robbery, I’ve seen it. I also watched and loved the shows White Collar and Leverage (I guess the author has seen this one too and that’s why the main character is called Deveraux). It would be unfair of me to not mention that I was very much into that aspect of the book. The prob [...]

    11. This was a good starting point for this new series. Josephine and Xavier had passion and great banter but I felt like it took quite a while for the story to come together. I will continue with the second book however as I love action romance and the idea of a crime fighting elite unit.I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington for an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. 3 stars! ~Ratula

    12. **** ARC kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review ****Warning: This review/rating is based on my feelings, thoughts, likes and dislikes. You should read the book to form your own opinion/thoughts. Read on!Rating: 4 StarsCover: I like itCliffhanger: NopeTriangle: NahThe story, Josephine is a thief, well, a retired thief, she is trying to have a normal life now that she has stopped stealing jewelry. Her ex blackmails her into stealing a necklace, but also a member of the Elite [...]

    13. An entertaining game of cat and mouse uniquely disguised as a coerced master thief and a former jaded one. The action is nonstop and fast paced with constant direction changes when least expected. There were gaps in some of the players involved, but in the interest of the story not being twice as long with too much fluff and filler, I can forgive that in favor of the overall storyline. Xavier and Josephine were a unique pair who kept the action tightly twisted, one with an objective, and the oth [...]

    14. The Elite Crimes Unit works behind the scenes of Interpol—and employs some of the world’s most talented criminal minds. Because as everyone knows, it takes a thief to catch a thief—or to seduce one . . .The old farmhouse in the French countryside is a refuge for former jewel thief Josephine Deveraux. Admittedly, there aren’t many men in the vicinity, but she has her cat to cuddle up with. It’s a far cry from her former life, constantly running from the law, and she’s enjoying her pea [...]

    15. I've not read any book where the hero/heroine is a thief, so this was quite refreshing and enjoyable for me; this was like a breath of fresh air from my usual reading fare. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, as I follow the unexpected yet delightful twists and turns in the story. The thing though is, because they're both thieves, they didn't know when it was time to trust the other. Maybe never. I thought that would get super exhausting in time. Yet, both Xavier and Josephine managed [...]

    16. This story starts off with a bang the horrible ex of an retired jewel thief breaks into her home and tells her that he needs to get her back in the game. She refuses A fight ensues and he leaves. Josephine Devereaux our heroine in this story decides that she needs to find out what is going on and how Lincoln was able to find her. In the end Josephine has no choice, as she is being blackmailed by Lincoln to find this diamond. Josephine and Xavier encounter each other when they find out they are b [...]

    17. This was fantastic! It had action, adventure, romance, two thieves who are after the same necklace and of course there's a lot of chase scenes as well. Xavier is a reformed thief (he works for the Elite Crimes Unit) and Josephine is a retired one. He steals for the good, she steals to get her cat back! Right?! Kick ass, smart and sexy and a cat lover! I mean who wouldn't like Josephine. Xavier isn't too bad himself. But despite the very lighthearted tone and the action scenes, there is a lot of [...]

    18. This book grabs your imagination from page 1. It entertains from beginning to end. Hauf's characters are enthuse with life and are very likeable, including the elf-eared cat.I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.

    19. I love heist plots, so I was looking forward to this book. It was entertaining, but not what I had hoped. The two thieves, Josephine and Xavier, meet while trying to steal the same necklace. She is trying to steal it for her ex-boyfriend who is threatening her and beating her up. He is trying to steal it for the government organization who let him out of jail to work for the Elite Crimes Unit. I understand that stories are stories, but this stretched too far. A formula for weapons on the gems of [...]

    20. I received this book in exchange for my honest review.This was simply an amazing and astonishing story! It gave me the feeling that I really want to know all that is possible about the characters. I loved the main character, he is a hero and at the same time thief or special agent. The story starts with Josephine Deveraux who is a retired thief or at least she thought so. The problem is, she’s blackmailed by her ex to try and steal a diamond. When she goes to try and steal it, she is surprised [...]

    21. 1.5 starsIts really tough to rate this book. I liked Josephine and Xavier but HATED ECU,felt the unit was full of bunch of manipulative b******s and this series is supposed to be all about them. I didn't like ECU's treatment of Xavier and they are planning to recruit Lincoln(another thief and Josephine's ex).It doesn't matter that he was the one who hit and beat Josephine in the climax.So NOT continuing the series.
