Love Under Cover
by Jessica Brody
Can a former fidelity inspector tear herself away from her old calling for the sake of the perfect guy, or is the temptation to conduct love under cover just too strong?
Jennifer Hunter never saw herself as the relationship type. After all, she’d spent the last two years of her life as an undercover fidelity inspector, hired to test men’s faithfulness—not exactly the kind of job that lends itself to intimacy. But when Jamie Richards walked into her life, everything changed, and Jennifer vowed to trade in her undercover lifestyle for something more normal. That’s why she formed the Hawthorne Agency: five full-time fidelity inspectors, hired to carry out Jennifer’s mission while she manages the process from a safe (relationship-saving) distance.
Jen's business is booming, and just when it seems like things can’t possibly get any better, Jamie proposes. Despite her lifelong issues with trust and commitment, Jen says yes. But can a woman who’s seen nothing but failed marriages ever come to terms with tying the knot herself? And when Jen receives a frantic phone call from one of her employees in trouble, she’s forced to make a choice. A choice that lands her in an all-too familiar place—a strange hotel room, kissing another man. And she knows that nothing will be the same.
I didn't have a chance to read the first book but I was really curious check out this book when I heard about it. With such a timely topic (I mean they have reality TV shows based on this premise!) I figured it had to be pretty interesting. I wasn't wrong, Love Under Cover is genuine chick-lit fun!
To me Jen symbolizes a whole generation of kids who will have issues with commitment and fidelity. With the rate of divorce these days and the percentage of people who cheat on their spouses I imagine fidelity inspectors will be a booming job market.
Her job, her new finance and her relationship with her womanizing father make Jen's life a little more complicated than she would like. Throw in commando Barbie wedding planner and things really get crazy!
If you are looking for a fun, well written read that will hook you from the very first page you've found it here! Pick it up for the winter holidays, cuddle up, read and enjoy!
