For a singer and a spy, love might be mission impossible.
Jaxon Powers has what most only dream of. Fame. Fortune. Gold records and Grammy awards. Lavish hotel suites and an endless parade of eager bedmates. He’s adored all over the world—even in the remote, repressive country of Vasnytsia, where the tyrannical dictator is a big fan. The State Department hopes a performance might improve US relations with a dangerous enemy. But it means Jaxon’s going in alone… with one exception.
Secret agent Reid Stanfill has a covert agenda with global ramifications. Duty means everything to him, even when it involves protecting a jaded rock star. Jaxon and Reid’s mutual attraction is dangerous under Vasnytsia’s harsh laws—and matters get even worse when they’re trapped inside the borders. Romance will have to wait… assuming they make it out alive.
💜The Spy 👀 Who Rocked 🎸 Me! Reid and Jaxon!💜
My Thoughts and Review:
Reid and Jaxson
💎WHAT A SURPRISING GEM!💎
I needed to find a book for a reading challenge in the MM Romance group I am in on Goodreads. In my search, this one came across my Kindle and piqued my interest because it not only was about a singer but was about a spy. Who doesn’t love a Bond or Bourne man?
The author created such an intricate world filled with strong fully actualized characters so real that you could close your eyes and see them as clearly as if they were on a movie screen. The country of Vasnytsia was reminiscent of other countries we have seen in the news, where dictators keep people under their strict rule, cutting them off from the outside world. I was able to empathize with these people, and felt their fear and loathing for a government that kept them in abject poverty and forced ignorance of the world outside their borders.
Fielding’s characters became people I cared about. While the story was a romance about MCs Reid and Jaxson, I also grew to care for the citizens who put their lives in jeopardy to hide and help Jaxson and Reid.
I usually read books filled with enough fluff and fun to fill a giant unicorn pinata. This one caught me sooooo off guard. I cried ugly tears 😭 more than once. Dayaum you, Kim Fielding! And Dayaum you, Drew Becca for giving such a profound performance narrating. **Sigh… I curse you both with love and rainbows!😂 💖🌈💖
This has been one of my favorite reads/ listens so far this year. Quite possibly one of my faves of all time in the MM Romance genre. I absolutely loved it!
**I recommend this to anyone in need of a good read, and especially recommend to anyone who is a fan of audible.
Just in case you had a doubt, I loved it!!!💖
