Monroe’s super-secret Goddard Project gives rise to another spy, Elle Gray, who looks like a supermodel and can incapacitate a bad guy in seconds. She’s also an expert security consultant who, ever since her husband died, has done nothing but work, purposely cutting herself off from her family in California. Now her boss intends to change all that by sending Elle to the West Coast to consult with a research and design firm. Her life does indeed change the minute she steps out of her sports car and meets the scientist she’ll be working with, Dr. Beau Ruston. He’s one tall Texan, a former football player, and brainy to boot. Elle has some serious choices to make in this romantic tale replete with espionage and steamy sex. --Maria Hatton
From Publishers Weekly
Monroe's absurd latest features studly chemist Beau Ruston and sexy spy Elle Gray. When security is compromised in Ruston's lab, the government sends in Gray with cover as a security consultant. While both are instantly attracted to each other, Gray must conceal her true identity, and Ruston must conceal that he already knows it. The layers of deception are compounded when Elle discovers that her brother, Matej, is working at the laboratory as well. When smugglers bent on stealing an antigravity prototype start threatening Matej's girlfriend, Gray makes it personal. There's nothing that hasn't been done better elsewhere; the characters are woefully caricatured types; the sex scenes are dreadful (But her vaginal walls were spasming with desire) and the plot has a distant, nodding acquaintance with reality. (Jan.)

Research chemist Beau Ruston's top secret laboratory was compromised. Elle is sent in under the cover of being a security consultant insuring it does not happen again. In fact she is there to keep Beau safe and catch those who breached security. It is attraction at first sight as Beau and Elle want one another. However, she hides her true vocation from him while he conceals he knows her true vocation. However, Elle's hidden identity is in trouble when she learns her brother Matej works at the lab. When her sibling's girlfriend becomes the pawn of espionage thieves trying to steal Beau's antigravity prototype, a fired up Elle goes after them.
THE SPY WHO WANTS ME is a solid yet inane TGP espionage romance that in many ways lampoons Lucy Monroe's romantic suspense thrillers (see READY, WILLING, ABLE, and SATISFACTION GUARANTEED). The key players are cartoon caricatures in nature especially the superheroine and the villains. However, the story line is lighthearted fun to follow as the spy who came in from the cold finds heat with her scientist, who discovers the ecstasy of first hand (tongue, etc) vaginal research.
The worst part of this book, had to be the way the sex was written. It was utterly the most unromantic way to write love scenes. Elle would murmur half sentences about a condom, and the way she said them made it seem a little...rehearsed. The condom thing really bothered me and turned me off completely. Right when Beau would get into his sexy talk, Elle would mutter stupid stuff, in what sounded like a supposed breathless, sexy moan, which would spoil the moment.
This book was so different from Lucy Monroe's style of writing, it's hard to believe her name is on the cover. Besides the terrible "romance", I was so lost in this story. The plot was barely there, and the dialogue between the characters was so immature. I felt as if I was reading a high school soap opera.
Elle Gray, a Goddard Project agent takes a case that brings her back near her family in California. Elle is brought in as a security consultant to help protect a valuable scientific project. Elle is tops in her field and gives her all to her job. Elle is taken aback by her instant attraction to the head scientist Beau Ruston.
Dr. Beau Ruston is willing to protect his project, even to the point of agreeing to outside security. He sure wasn't expecting to be visual charged by his first look at Elle Gray. Soon Beau realizes Elle is not only beautiful but smart and skilled.
Elle has avoided her family for a few years after the death of her husband. Now her family is front and center with her brother Mat working with Beau. Add to this stress is Mat's girlfriend Chantal who is being threatened by outsiders who want their hands on the project.
Elle and Beau's romance is smoking hot and deeply sensual. The suspense of who the security leak adds another layer to the multi dimensional book. The secondary romance of Mat and Chantal is sweet and sexy and is well written as well.
Lucy Monroe's books are tops of my list of books to buy. You can't go wrong in picking up her books.
Lucy's books always provide me with a great read and a longing for my hero to come along. To me this is what a good romance book is supposed to accomplish. Ms. Monroe writes about strong men, but her woman are just as complex and she is skilled at creating great chemistry with all her charcters.
Though she did bring in Alan, Nitro, and Josie, I wish more would have been said about how the other players from her previous novels were doing. I'd like to see them all reunited again before Ms. Monroe moves away from this series. I can't wait for to learn more about Jonathan; aka Mr. Smith and who he and "The Old Man" decide to play matchmaker for next time.
