On her wedding day, Veronica Sinclair thinks she has it all: the loving family, the Vera Wang dress, the hunky husband. But then a mysterious and beautiful woman shows up at the reception, suggesting Veronica's new hubby isn't exactly who he says he is. As if that weren't enough, Veronica and Richard must flee gunmen in the middle of their honeymoon, convincing Veronica she got more than she bargained for when she said, "I do." Thrown into a world of espionage, seduction, and human trafficking, Veronica must fight for the life and husband she thought she had - and she must discover whether they are the life and husband she truly wants.

Sometimes you just need a fluff read. This book fits that bill. It’s a classic romance action story with a lot of entertaining humour.

The humour was the highlight of the story for me. There was witty banter, silly jokes, and Jeff’s antics were very amusing. I spent most of the book with a grin on my face because it was down right amusing.

The actual story was a bit too over-the-top unrealistic for me. Ronnie went from an average office worker to super spy in just a few glossed over months. Her reasonable reaction of anger at learning her new husband had a huge secret past only last for the length of time it took for him to get her into bed. It was a little too easy and typical-romance.

That being said, this was an entertaining story. There is a serious theme about human trafficking, but it’s partially hidden within the humourous romance. Great as a weekend read, this was an enjoyable classic-style romance.

  1. Yeah, I don’t think this would be for me either. Humor in a book is great, but it can only go so far to cover for a plot that’s unbelievable.

    • Yay, I’m willing to suspend belief a lot, but even I have limits. Especially for contemporary-style stories.
