Jessica Devlin knows everything there is to know about make-up… and being a super spy. Her longtime love for the cancelled The Adventures of Plucky Penguin leaves her dreaming of her very own super spy lover, but then her real life fiancé, the two-timing jerk, dumps her. Jess is a gal willing and ready to start over. She is off to England for her cousins wedding and a much needed vacation, not to wallow in the “smelly cow pies of the past.”
Once she lands in England, she is faced with the delicious and tempting playboy, Nick Mondinello. As luscious as the dessert tray that Jess cannot resist, Nick is everything that a spy girl could dream of. But other than looking like a body double for Pierce Brosnan, could Nick tempt Jess to fall in love again? Or is she safer listening to her mother’s warnings to stay away from playboy types?
Nick seems to be in a relationship with SexCrazed; a slutty and simpering auburn haired beauty. Regardless of his obvious relationship, sparks fly between Jess and Nick. Could he ever see past her too-thick thighs to the woman inside? Or is she better off protecting her heart from the dashing Englishman?
Most of this book was amazing and I loved a lot of Jess’s internal dialogue. Her attitude and spunk were irresistible and Nick was a sexy and yet tender counterpart to her awkwardness. The tenderness between these two characters was obvious, while the sexual tension was so palpable I felt I could reach out a hand and stroke it. For me, Jess sometimes went into a somewhat whining internal dialoguing that had me rolling my eyes, but other readers might not notice it since she was such a fun character altogether.
