Now, I’m all for a woman who enjoys sex and since men have been known to use it to gain power, I suppose it’s only fair game. That being said, there is a lot of sex in this book. Just a heads-up.
There were things I really liked about the book. Mallory’s character is strong and she’s a good spy for a long time, respected in the agency. Strong kick-ass female heroines are among my favourite.
Of course, as smart and as prepared as Mallory is, I didn’t need to know every single thought and the reasoning behind every little decision. As a reader, I felt I should have been given a little more credit. It’s great the author wants me to know how much research she’s done (or just how creative she is), but it did get a little tedious.
Morally ambivalent characters are always much-loved for me. I want to be challenged as to why Baxter Collinson makes the choices he makes and how he faces the consequences.
That being said, suspension of disbelief is necessary here. Not only are all crimes forgiven, but then Baxter is trained for all of TWO weeks before being sent out into the field.
There are NO other agents in the entirety of Her Majesty’s Secret Service who could do the job? But it fits the plot, setting up both a moral dilemma and the opportunity for even more sex.
The narrator, Poppy Jae Fox, saves the book. She is British – which is obviously appropriate, but she narrates the story with gravitas, even though the situations are a little absurd. She was pleasant to listen to and I will definitely look for more books narrated by her. Her Belgian and Russian accents were good as well.
The book had potential that was never fully realized. A thriller doesn’t need to have guns and action sequences to be exciting. In fact, most spying is fairly routine and boring. Fair enough. But if that’s the world we’re portraying, the writing needs to be much tighter. I don’t need to know why or why not spies are going to have a hot breakfast.
I do need to understand the stakes. Bad for Britain was never adequately explained, leaving a gaping hole in a book where every little thing is explained. So my one recommendation would be to tighten up the writing. This book could have been told in about half the time it was and it would have been a better book. Also, the ending was just a little too pat.
I’m not discouraged, though. I have another Lucy Fellthouse book in my library and I plan to listen to it soon. I am still willing to give the author another chance
I won’t delve any more into the plot but suffice to say I LOVED the unexpected twist. Do the couple have a future? How will Baxter view Mallory’s deceit? Can Mallory continue to maintain her professional detachment towards the very man who has made her question her actions?
I adored Mallory, a strong woman and a consummate professional, dedicated to her work as an undercover agent – she reminded me of a female James Bond as she enjoys her job and has a healthy attitude when it comes to sex! As for Baxter, he is both SO sexy and cheeky and has a fantastic sense of humour – it is no wonder Mallory falls for him. I really felt for him when he realises that Mallory deliberately orchestrated their relationship.
The characters are realistic and I easily identified with their emotions – I particularly loved the banter and the scenes between the main couple. It’s also got plenty of smexy and sizzling scenes which the author excels at.
Recommended for readers of romantic suspense who enjoy a read which contains some sexy and explicit scenes.
Please note, a copy of this book was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
That’s where Mallory comes in. She follows the group to Amsterdam, planning to get her claws in to one of the gang. Luck is on her side, and within twenty-four hours she’s lunching with Baxter Collinson, the youngest—and most handsome—diamond thief. What she's not expecting, however, is to get on with him quite so well. Attraction bubbles between them—and for once, on Mallory’s part, it isn’t an act. For the first time in her career, Mallory struggles with what she must do.
Can she ignore her heart for the sake of her career?
I loved, loved, loved this book. Mallory is full of sass, and very good at her job. I also loved Baxtor Collinson. He was very cheeky and good looking. I enjoyed the banter between the two of them, and the sex scenes were wild! The book was easy to read - I read it in one morning, and am now looking for more books by Lucy Felthouse. 5*
