He'd be a terrible spy... But he might make a good husband.
Call him Teague. Finn Teague. A jack-of-all-trades, he's been everything from ski instructor to cook, but he's always craved a job that wouldn't bore the living daylights out of him. He longs to be a shaken-not-stirred kind of guy, but knows it'll never happen. Currently a lawyer, Double-Oh-No spends most of his time in his LA apartmetn, ogling his two gorgeous neighbors-a view to a thrill- and fantasizing that he's a secret agent.

Amber Robinson, an elite operative for a top- secret government agency, is tracking a suspected terrorist's mistress. Her hunky neighbor Finn seems to be doing the same and Amber suspects he's a spy- just a very,very bad one. Setting out to seduce him and crack his secret identity (yes, she has the best job ever) Amber unwittingly takes Finn on a passion-filled, high-stakes adventure that'll teach him to never say never again.

I liked this book on many levels. I really liked the role reversal - she's the spy here, he's the civilian. That gave this a freshness that it wouldn't have had otherwise. The problem I had with this - and plotwise it's a pretty big problem - is that, at the climax of the book, they're changing the target of an orbiting weapons satellite from the middle east to just off the California coast without having to adjust the firing time. Since the author makes an point of addressing the targeting window earlier in the book, I have to assume it's not ignorance of this technical point, so it ends up feeling like she just threw the rule book out the window because it didn't suit the needs of her plot. I have a problem with that. I expect more from the authors I follow. So I guess this is my last Julie Kenner book. That's too bad, because I was enjoying her stories until she lost her credibility.
