Release Day Reviews: Undercover Boyfriend by Jacob Z. Flores


Two men, one lie, and a whole bunch of trouble.

Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—whom Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.

FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best. But between Marty’s mother and his ex, Luke might’ve bitten off more than he can chew, and Marty’s knack for finding trouble might ruin more than just his sister’s wedding.

Marty needs to find a pretend boyfriend for his sister's wedding, to avoid having to come clean that his underwear model boyfriend is nothing more than an invention and hopefully stop his mother from keep trying to make Marty take his ex-boyfriend back. 

Undercover FBI Agent Luke Myers is on the run after his cover was discovered, so playing the part of Marty's boyfriend is just perfect to lay low for a bit. Only he didn't account for the fact that trouble seems to follow Marty everywhere he goes. 

Marty was truly adorkable, sweet, innocent and prone to things happening to him. And Luke was what dreams are made of, tall, blond and handsome and so into Marty, despite his less than model-like looks. They had great chemistry and it was so much fun to follow them on their adventures. 

Marty's family and Crispy, Luke's partner, were a hoot! And while the villains and some of the action were a bit over the top, the story was still really enjoyable.  

This was such a great addition to the Dreamspun series. It was fun, fast-paced and overall delightful, with some suspense and that fairytale-ish feeling that characterizes the series. Definitely a must-read!

Rating: 4.5 Stars!!!

I loved Undercover Boyfriend! This book had me laughing out loud more than once. Jacob Z. Flores did such a great job telling a story filled with action, humor and romance. And honestly, I adored Marty and Luke, they were so cute together. 

Would I recommend Undercover Boyfriend? Definitely. If you are in the mood for an easy, lighthearted read, this is a perfect choice. 

5 Stars!
