She needs a fake husband. He needs to protect his best friend…
Ever since I caught my boyfriend getting hot and steamy with another woman, I’ve thrown myself into my career. But now I’m ready to move from being the super-efficient office manager to an operative with Quade Security and Investigation.
Just as soon as I prove to my boss that I’m kick-ass enough to do the job.
So when my grandmother asks for my help, there’s no way I can say no. Her former love has a mission for Jayden—my hot colleague and best friend—and me. What more could I want?
The last thing I want is for Isabelle to be is an operative. She’s my best friend, and I hate the idea of her being in danger. Unfortunately, our boss has other plans.
Isabelle and I go undercover at a resort for happily married couples. But forget moonlight walks and hanging out by the pool. To maintain our cover, we have to participate in activities that would make a nun blush.
Clothes come flying off, and we agree to temporarily be friends-with-benefits while there. No strings attached. No complications. Nothing could be simpler. Right?
Wrong—because there’s another reason we’ve been lured to the resort. A reason that will put our hearts to the test…and our lives on the line.
Isabell works as the office manager at Quade Security and Investigations but her dream is to be an operative. Her best friend Jayden does not want her to become an operative and has tried everything he can to persuade Isabell to change her mind. The perfect opportunity for Isabell to prove herself arises when her grandmother asks her to help her ex-boyfriend to investigate suspicious activity at his resort. Jayden is not happy when their boss Liam agrees to give Isabell a chance to prove she can be an operative. Isabell and Jayden go undercover as a married couple at the resort that has them participating in activities that are making it extremely difficult to hide their attraction to each other.
I was hooked on this novel right from the beginning and could not put it down. The sexual tension and innuendos between Jayden and Isabell had me laughing out loud throughout the whole novel. While You Were Spying is a hilarious friends to lovers novel, a great start to the Love Undercover series which is told in the first-person point of view. This is my first novel by Stina Lindenblatt and I was not disappointed. I will be reading more of her novels. I received an arc of While You Were Spying in exchange for my honest review.
