Blurb: Even if Ross and Kyle make it out of this alive, will the secrets in Kyle’s heart stay safe?
Kyle gets caught up in a case that is entirely unrelated to Bodyguards Inc. Not only does he abruptly need time off, but he has to have absolute trust and complete support from Ross without being able to tell Ross a thing.
CIA Agent Stefan Mortimer needs Kyle’s help with a case of a geneticist and a missing formula. Trouble is being led right to Kyle’s door, endangering the life of the team he has built and the man that he loves.
Going undercover, with Ross as his husband, is the worst kind of torture in so many ways, but it is the only answer. Kyle and Ross may well live through this but Kyle is convinced his heart won’t survive.
Review: I am a huge fan of RJ Scott. She consistently puts out great book after great book. Undercover Lovers is no exception. In this story we meet Kyle and Ross. Both have worked together in the capacity of employer (Kyle) and PA (Ross). When an assignment comes up where Kyle needs a second person to complete his cover, he invited Ross to come along as his husband. Of course, we find out right away that Kyle has harbored feelings for Ross from the first day they met, and Ross has similar feelings. Up until this assignment, they’d kept their relationship professional, neither willing to risk messing up their strong working relationship.
This story moves at an easy pace, shifting back and forth from Kyle and Ross’s point of view. Rather than focusing on a tight action plotline, the relationship and feelings take center stage as we watch the two men slowly open up to the other. Once the action plotline explodes, the pace picks up and carries through until the end.
Overall, I found this to be a pleasant read. It had all the elements I enjoy in an erotic romance. Two awesome characters, real feelings developed with finesse, and some hot sex scenes. For me, I would have liked the action plotline to have played a slightly larger role. As I read, I found myself enjoying the back and forth of the protagonists but wondering when their assignment would pick up (after all, that was the premise for why they’d gone to all the trouble of posing as a married couple).
A great read that moved at a steady pace, I’d recommend this as a nice weekend read or something to enjoy over a vacation between whatever events you have scheduled.
