REVIEW for Love Undercover

Thank you goes out to author Jessica Brody and her publicist for so kindly sending me a copy of this book.



TITLE: Love Undercover

AUTHOR: Jessica Brody
GENRE: Chick Lit

RATING: 4 Stars
I have been lucky enough to read both books in this series and have thoroughly enjoyed both of them. I have to say that author Jessica Brody certainly has a way of taking a subject that is a very hot issue in our day - infidelity and kind of turned it on its ear by creating a whole novel that is based around it.
Although this book is quite chick litty, I have to say that part of me, while reading this novel, felt a little sad that somehow we have come to a point in life where infidelity is such a big issue that we write entire novels on it. Of course, this book is written for laughs and I should not be taking the entire subject quite so seriously - I mean, "Jennifer" makes her living off of infidelity - however, what really makes this book work is the premise that Jennifer has seen so much infidelity - how can she believe in true love? What is it they say about the shoemaker being shoeless? or something like that?
This book is written with great affection and humour and I thorougly enjoyed it.

I really liked both books too! I discovered the books when my bookclub choose Fidelity Files one month - I was drawn in by the story and Jennifer/Ashlynn was a great protagonist!

Uh Oh, what was the first book?
It sounds good, I want to read them.
I will have to look up the Author.

It has been a while since I have read a chick-lit book, I miss them, sigh.
