Special Agent Francesca by Mimi Barbour
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Special Agent Francesca Donovan can't wait to start her new life as an undercover FBI agent in Las Vegas. All her life, she's been trying to prove herself to her mother, the Special Assistant to the Director of the FBI, and now she gets the chance to do just that - if only she doesn't mess up her first assignment! Other than that, she just has to pop by and introduce herself to the father she just found out she had... and try not to fall in love with her new partner, Sean Collins, Psychiatrist and LVPD Profiler, who's posing as her fiance.
Mimi Barbour takes you on a wild ride with Francesca and Sean as they work undercover to clean up the gang that has been threatening hotels in the neighbourhood. It's pretty light and funny reading, with Francesca's sass and Sean's reactions providing a lot of comic relief. Special Agent Francesca is definitely not a serious girl, so don't expect anything deeper than an entertaining afternoon read.
Parts of story are steamier than I usually read (this is NOT for the kiddies) and there were times I skimmed through thinking "Am I really reading this?" so that contributes a little to my ambivalence between a 3 and 4 star rating.
Also, some strong swearing involved. Just saying, cause this deviates from my usual fare.
I received a free copy for review from the author in exchange for an honest review.
