Kissing her way through Europe wasn’t in the job description . . .

When Paige’s mysterious and attractive boyfriend dumps her in an email, she decides that chaperoning hormonal teenagers on a once-in-a-lifetime trip is the perfect way to cope. Surely a summer in Europe will heal her battered heart. Best of all, she’ll get to visit the historical sites she’s spent a lifetime studying on someone else’s dime.

Nick’s life is in free fall. Being an undercover agent has never been easy, but lately the price has been too high. He’s just dumped the love of his life for a secret European mission that results in the death of his best friend. Nick can’t shake the feeling that there’s a rat at the agency, and he’s determined to track him down.

When Nick and Paige end up spending the summer together as colleagues, it’s more than either bargained for. Sparks fly as they reconnect, and secrets become harder and harder to keep. Paige is determined to get answers about their breakup, and Nick is eager for a second chance. But as the investigation into his partner’s death heats up, one kiss in the moonlight changes everything. 

Megan's review

When I saw that this book was narrated by Stacey Glemboski (the same narrator who did Lindzee’s Sunset Plains series), I knew I had to have it! I absolutely loved Cupcakes and Cowboys when I listened to it and this book was no different.

The audio – let’s start with that while I am busy gushing about the incredibly talented Stacey Glemboski. The narration was flawless. Stacey changed her voice enough (not necessarily through the sound but through the tone and mannerisms) that I was easily able to keep track of who was speaking. I knew Paige as soon as she started speaking, Nick as well. Layla (one of the other tour guides) had a personality all her own that I picked her out immediately. (I can’t wait to hear more about her story in Kiss Me in the Rain!) I loved how I was able to speed up or slow down my Audible app without it messing with Stacey’s pacing (unfortunately, not all narrators can accomplish this). Very well done!

As for the book itself – I loved the characters. I thought, after hearing the way he dumped Paige, that Nick was going to be a douche. Thankfully, I was wrong! He shows up for the tour and OH THE SPARKS. Right away, you can tell there’s something major going on between him and Paige.

And Paige – I really enjoyed her character. Even with everything that Nick put her through with the super lame and cruddy email break-up (really, Nick?) she isn’t this petty person just trying to hurt him back. I mean, yea she wants answers (and who wouldn’t?) but she’s really just trying to move on. I had to give her credit for that.

My favorite character? Layla. Hands down. I ADORED her. Her spunk, her attitude, the way she kind-of takes lead and mothers the group. She was such a perfect friend-match for Paige.

I’m really trying here – there has to be something I didn’t like about this book . . .

Anything . . .

*taps fingers and looks around absentmindedly until concerned husband looks at her like she’s gone crackers* (fair point – maybe I have . . .)

No, nothing. The only negative thing I can say about this book was that it ended and now I want more. I loved every minute of it (the characters, the narration, the plot – I mean, come on – SPIES). I will be reading (and listening to) this over and over again.
