Alex is a CIA agent trying to catch another agent who is selling secrets to Venezuela.
Beth is the maid of honor in her best friend’s wedding. Her pretend boyfriend Charlie is her way of making sure her ex-boyfriend does not try to put the moves on her. After catching Alex in a compromising situation, she blackmails him to pretend to be Charlie.
When Beth sees something she should not have and the attempt on her life fails, Alex is not just a pretend boyfriend. He becomes her protector as well.
This book was enjoyable. It was a like one of those corny action romance movies.
You have to suspend belief to get into the plot.
The banter between Alex and Beth made me chuckle at times but groan at other times. It seems that all the characters are off-the-wall with their questionable decision making, but it all comes together in the end.
I did enjoy the final elevator scene. Beth came out of character and did the unexpected. Good for her!
Should you buy? I recommend it as entertainment and do not take the story too seriously. It is part romance, part suspense with enough over-the-top hijinks to keep you amused.
