Book Description

Live and Let Love

Gina Robinson

Though Willow Pierce has moved forward since her husband died two years ago, she can't ignore her sixth sense that Jack is alive.When newcomer Con Russo comes to town, Willow is convinced he's Jack. She'd never forget his eyes. Willow is determined to learn the truth about Con's identity--even if it means brazenly seducing him.
Secret agent Jack Pierce was almost killed in an explosion that left him severely disfigured. Thanks to reconstructive surgery, he has a new face and a new life. But when the terrorist who tried to assassinate him suspects he's still alive, Jack's forced to go undercover--and destroy him for good. But before he can complete his mission, he must protect the only woman he's ever loved...

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Robinson’s third Agent Ex novel after Diamonds Are Truly Forever (2012) finds CIA agent Jack Pierce resurrected after an explosion has reportedly killed him. Now with extensive reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, he’s been assigned to kill the man whose job it was to kill him. Jack is excited about this assignment; if only his adversary hadn’t set up his operation in the same community where Jack’s “widow” lives. After the CIA confirmed Jack’s death, Willow has rebuilt her life by establishing a candy business and is finally emerging from her grief. However, she’s suspicious when Jack, under the pseudonym Con, arrives. Although he doesn’t look like her late husband, he sure reminds her of him. As Con and his enemy play cat and mouse, and even engage in a deadly line-dance competition, Willow grows more and more certain Con is Jack. But what is he doing here, and why won’t he acknowledge her as his wife? Robinson again skillfully digs into the semisweet love life of those connected with the spy business, while adding a dollop of humor. --Pat Henshaw


Praise for Gina Robinson’s THE SPY WHO LEFT ME

“This first Agent Ex novel is good, old-fashioned fun. Full of laughter, intrigue, and, of course, steamy spies, it’s a great weekend escape. Robinson knows how to balance a book with lighthearted romps and serious romance.” —RT Book Reviews

“At times laugh-out-loud funny, Robinson's foray into the world of James Bond has its poignant side, assuring that readers will be back for more.”—Booklist

“Punctuated with Bondworthy downhill car and bike chases and near-death surfing parties, Robinson’s clever concoction of lust and longing is a refreshing tropical cocktail.”—Publishers Weekly

“Mystery, mayhem, sexy spies, and lots of laughter. Gina Robinson writes a damn good book!” —Christie Craig, award-winning author

“The action is fast and furious and the plot twists turn on a dime. Ms. Robinson seamlessly adds humor to her story that will keep the reader laughing as things keep going wrong.”—Single  

“A hilariously brilliant romp into the world of espionage and intrigue. Ty and Treflee are amazingly sympathetic characters and the world that Ms. Robinson has built for them to play in is dazzling and colorful. It isn’t much of a stretch for the reader to hear the native birds sing and smell the coconut oil as they read this delightful novel!” —Reader to Reader Reviews

“Firmly establishes Gina Robinson as one of today’s most exciting new authors of romantic suspense. It’s bold, it’s brassy, it’s full of spy-goodness with a wicked sense of humor that’ll leave you both shaken and stirred.”—The Big Thrill

“Gina Robinson takes drama, comedy and action whips them together to make one delicious read!”—Joyfully Reviewed

5.0 out of 5 stars The game is definitely on February 3, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jack Pierce is a spy that rose like a phoenix and came back from the dead with new physical features and old heartache. Jack had been gone for two years from everything he held dear to serve the Government to the best of his ability. Now Jack is going undercover in the town where his wife Willow started over after his supposed death.

Willow swears she would know Jack anywhere even with her Spidey Sense tingling. The minute she meets a man new to town named Con, Willow knows he is not some Italian import he is her husband come back to her. Jack will not give up his cover because the mission is too important for the country's well-being, but the temptation of Willow is a hard one to ignore. She always did rattle every sexual chain he had and resisting her is not going to be easy.

The stakes are high and everything is on Jack's broad but breakable shoulders. Willow has decided to up the ante and expose that his man named Con is really Jack, and figure out why he is in town. Willow was not a spy but she spent enough years as the wife of one to have a few tricks of her own and losing Jack again is not an option.

Gina Robinson has the ability to keep readers clutching their books and frantically turning the page just to know what is going to happen next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jumping the shark December 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have enjoyed this author and this series previously. The time out, not so much. This story is kind of a mishmash of various genres. We have an agent returning from the dead, his widow who has the Sense, but not sense enough to know it's really him or not, the bad guy who is trying to date the widow to find out if our hero is still alive-none comes together at all. In previous Agent Ex books there has been a sense of satire or humor, not so much here. The dialogue is stilted and silly and quite honestly I really didn't like or care enough about the characters to stick around to the very end. A rare miss from a good author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loopy and Adorable Romance (B Grade) March 1, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I’ve become a big fan of Gina Robinson’s Agent Ex novels. Every single couple showcased in this series are married, and the hero is an undercover spy. The heroines know about their husband’s work, and are supportive and very loving. In Live and Let Love (Agent Ex #3), Willow was told her husband Jack was killed in an explosion. Jack was hurt in an explosion, but wasn’t killed. He’s been hiding out in Rio for two years, along with a new face and a sexy accent, thanks to his boss, National Clandestine Service chief, Emmett Nelson, head of the spying arm of the Central Intelligence Agency. Jack was responsible for taking out the hated drug lord, Beto Bevilacqua, but he had to give up his life and his wife, Willow, who he misses dearly. Emmett comes to Jack with a new mission. It looks like Rooster, Jack’s nemesis and assassin spy for the evil group, RIOT thinks Jack is alive and wants to kill him. In order to bring Jack back out in the open, Rooster and RIOT are going to blow up an auxiliary meeting of the G Eight summit in Los Angeles. Jack will go back undercover as Con Russo, an Italian first cousin once removed to Aldo Salemo who lives in the small town of Orchard Bluff, Washington where Rooster is hiding. But Emmett throws a big wrench in Jack’s plan. Jack’s wife Willow also lives in the small town and Rooster is romancing her in order to get to Jack.

Willow enjoys her small town life making homemade sauces and candy, but she doesn’t feel totally at peace since she still misses her deceased husband Jack. Shane Kennett, the handsome farmer keeps asking her out but she really isn’t interested in him. And then the sexy and attractive Con comes into town and Willow’s spidey senses are tingly. There’s something about Con that puts her on alert.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and sexy contemporary romance April 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 Stars

If you are looking for a fun and sexy contemporary romance with HOT spies and to die for assassins then look no further than this series. The 3rd book in an Agent Ex series by Gina Robinson has this and much more.

When Jack Pierce was blown up two years ago in a mission gone wrong he thought he was doing right by his wife and keeping her out of harms way. Yet, not everyone thought Jack died in the explosion. With a new name and new look Jack has to take on the hardest mission of his life, protecting his wife.

Willow Pierce is trying to move on with her life after the death of her husband Jack, dating even. However, when a sexy Italian Con Russo walks into her candy business there is such a draw to him that is unexplainable. He looks like her dead husband but doesn't. From his laugh to his eyes even him picking out the same candy that was Jacks favorite. Willow will do whatever she can to get to the bottom of this mystery.

I loved how much fun I had reading this book even with the mystery and suspense of it Ms. Robinson had enough humor in it that everything was well blended together to make for a great read. This is a great contemporary series that you can't help but get caught up in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun read February 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The agent Ex series has been a real fun read. Not the most depth of story line but very lovable characters and fun to read. I have read all of the ones out to date in the series and I have really liked all of them. Somewhat predictable but still a great read. I highly recommend it if you want a funny and slightly intriguing read.
