First, while Alex did heroic things (which I liked), he didn't really grab me. Beyond the physical attraction and adrenaline of the moment – neither of which is the basis for an enduring relationship – I didn't know him well enough to feel what drew Beth to him. And I really couldn't see what he saw in Beth, beyond her willingness to lay him, which under the circumstances, was both inappropriate and unprofessional.
To be truthful, I found the whole premise unbelievable. That's not how the CIA (or any government agency) would handle the situation. Moving into a girl's room? Deliberately putting her in harm's way to catch a criminal? That might work in movies, but I couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to really enjoy the story.
On the plus side, I liked how the author wrote the mother. Beth was impulsive, talked too much, and nursed a childish grudge – a grudge I didn't think the mother deserved with how she was written. But by the end of the story, we witnessed enough character growth in Beth to hope she could finally get past all that.
Please don't take my three-star review for a negative review. That's just how the story struck me. Despite its faults, the writing is readable, the editing impeccable, and if you love chick-lit with light character development and plenty of passion (there are two graphic sex scenes), this might be a five-star book to you. But for me it was just "okay."
Fun RomCom that captures your attention straight away and doesn't let go.
Beth Bradley is attending her best friend's wedding... Sans her plus one... Because "Charlie" doesn't exist. Her imaginary boyfriend, with more and more embellishment over the years, obviously can't attend the wedding. And her ex will be there to complete her humiliation, in front of everyone she knew. // Alex Tanner is at the Kensington Hotel in search of a traitor who was selling out to a foreign nation, that nation's rep is using this wedding as a cover to meet with the traitor. He needs an inside connection to the wedding, even as he searched for more intel. When he was busted by Beth checking out one of the guest cars, Beth blackmailed him into pretending to be her boyfriend "Charlie". Alex smiled, it's exactly where he needed to be... close to the wedding as a bridesmaid's BF. But when Beth stumbled into seeing the traitor's face (she didn't know it at the time), she became a target for assassins... and the only one who can keep her safe is Alex/Charlie...
The mix sort of works, but not quite. The mood is decidedly... weird, and the ending was way too simple and too fast.
