I found this book to be very cute. Its very simple but still fun. the whole spy part of the book made it more interesting. I love the characters and the story line. This is a fun quick read that should be part of your collection.

Kaitlyn Nichols doesn't have your typical parents. Her father is a member of the FBI secret service and is often gone for long periods of time. Her mother is a sex (excuse me, "relationship") columnist, and her research frequently involves piles of thongs and condoms lying around the house. However, despite what one might think, her parents' work doesn't usually affect Kaitlyn too much. Until now.

This had the potential of being a very cute story but was weighed down by other factors I didn't care for. Her mother is a sex columnist which causes many unneccessary sexual topics. There was also more swearing then normal in these Simon Romantic comedies. I also don't care for stories where a couple meets a crush develops but the story lacks information of them getting to know each other well. These two seemed to know each other pretty well but there was the lack of that part of the story with...more
I did not get past the first chapter or two in this book. It begins by discussing the teenager's parents' careers. The dad is an FBI agent, and that's fine. But the mother just became the "sex columnist" for a newspaper, and the teenager goes on about all of the embarrassing topics her mother is writing about. Then the book goes on about how all teenagers do is talk about sex.

Obviously, I was not interested. I do not recommend this book.

I really like this book because it is really interesting and humorous. It is pretty easy to read and understand so it really is fun to read when you are bored and would like something fun to do. This book makes you crave for more. So much that you hate it when it ends and makes you wish that it was a series instead of one book. This book is a little different than what I usually read in that it doesn't include the supernatural but it is similar in that it includes romance and the surreal althou...more
Kaitlyn has a father who works as a secret agent. Sounds cool right? Actually, no. It's not as exciting as it seems. Usually, he's just filing papers or doing some kind of office work. BORINNG.. But then one day, he unexpectedly brings home Blaine, a witness in need of a safe house to stay in until he is no longer in danger. Kaitlyn's dad enrolls him in her high school with a fake identity as Kaitlyn's cousin, giving her the duty of protecting him as well as reporting any suspicious contact. But...more

I realized that I really like reading these books when I'm sick because they require absolutely no thought and are silly and fun. This book was no exception but it could have been better. Here's the summary:

Kaitlyn Nichols is a normal girl - gets good grades, likes to write, has a crush on the hottest guy in school. That changes when her normally boring secret agent dad brings home Blaine, a seventeen-year-old hottie who's entering the Witness Protection Program and is now playing the part of he...more
I expected to like this book a bit more then I did. It was pretty fast paced and it is a quick read. Some parts were funny (Kaitlyn "studying" how to be a spy by watching Alias and The Jason Bourne films) but it had too many pop culture references that (even though I was a teenager when this book was released) still took me out of the story. they watched a lot of Laguna Beach and update Myspace. Many of the characters were just one dimensional villains and I wished we could actually see Kaitlyn...more
this book was really cute, im normally not one for romance books but it involved spies and comedy. i highly reccomend this book to anyone interested in a good love story, its a pretty quick read too, i finished it in like a day or less. The main character Kaitlyn's dad is part of the FBI and her mom is a Journalist in the local newspaper, one day she comes home from a sleepover and finds a stranger in her house his name is Blaine and his father is a Billionare. Kaitlin's dad is part of the witne...more

Kaitlyn Nichols is an average 16-year-old except for one thing; her father is an undercover FBI agent. Sadly his job isn't as glamorous as it sounds; until the day he brings home Blaine Donovan.

Blaine is the 17-year-old son of a Texas oil tycoon, whose life is in danger. He comes to stay with Kaitlyn's family as he hides out from the hit men who are after his family.

Now Kaitlyn must protect Blaine while juggling high school, friends, and mean girls all while keeping Blaine's identity a secret...more

As a teen romance book, it was cute. The author keeps you on your toes. Kaitlyn is a ambitious, teen girl who, like every other teen girl, seeks romance and excitement. You have to read this funny adventure she takes as she finds everything she was looking for.
This is like those YA books that are unrealistic and ruins the mind yet adds to the inagination of teenagers...but i like it anyway! It's has something to do with detectives but that was reallly just a coincidence. It's about rich boy name Blaine and he is endanger becasue he's rich and someone is threatening his family so he has to hide his identity for a while in a "undercover" place until teh police can find the people who are after Blaine and his family. it turns outthat he will live tempora...more

I read this book when I was in the hospital for 3 months undergoing tests. I had absolutely nothing to do and this book fulfilled its uprpose: it cured my boredom. However, that's pretty much all it did. The writing style was upbeat, humorous and fun, the characters were quirky and funny, if a little plain, but overall it was an OK book. I figured out the ending way, way before it actually came, but what can you do? I'd recommend this book to anyoen suffering from accute boredom and in need of a...more

Kaitlyn's life changes when she takes on the responsibility of protecting Blaine because of the Witness Protection Program. Now she has to be aware of everyone around her and be on the lookout for suspicious people who might want Blaine dead.

I enjoyed reading this novel because it had an unique plot. The journey that Kaitlyn went through was both adventurous and comical. It was interesting to read about what happens.
Cute story. Kaitlyn made me laugh out loud with her spy research. And her interaction with her best friend was cute. The love story was a bit lacking and I wasn't all that keen on decisions Kaitlyn's love interest Blaine made. I think what saved me from not liking this novel was how it made me giggle from time to time. Overall, it was a decent read, but not my favorite of the romantic comedies.
i read this book in about three hours. it was a quick easy read
but there was nothing GOOD about it. nothing too exciting with the characters or the plot. there really wasnt a lot of conflict or a climax that really was exciting. nope... nothing at all. it was disappointing. this is the first book of Jo Edwards that i have read and i dont know if i will read another. we'll see.
an original teen romcom while there is not a huge amount of character development with many characters being quite 2-dimensional the love story is cute and the mystery may intrigue people. despite this as a light trashy read i find this one quite enjoyable... despite finding the male lead kind of oblivious he is still a sweet guy and our leading lady does have a interesting voice.
I thought that this book was really awesome, especially with the suspense combined with the little romance. I loved that there were people against the main character, even though I hated them, they added more drama to the book. The only part that I wish happened was for Amber to exposed as the bully that she is to Blaine.
I thought this book was really interesting, and not cheesy. It actually had a good plot about a boy with his family in danger and him having to stay with a family whose dad is an undercover FBI agent. So he stays with them to keep Blaine/Gordon safe. It was a very good book and I recommend it!
Love, adventure and humor all assemble into this story. A nice read.

Due to the witness protection program (wpp) Kaitlyn, the main girl has to protect Blaine, who is in danger of being killed. However can protecting Blaine, spark something more out of them?

Joan Cristy
It's like a cliche cheesy book you know? I'm not gonna say that it's written totally badly, it isn't even but I think the way it IS written is kind of too mature, the diction seems to heavy if like young, middle school or high school kids, read it.
It was a lovely story the characters were personable. The spy twist was an awesome lead and I felt that I couldnt put the book down. The story was a fast read, with simple sentences and small sentence structure changes.

This is a book about a girl's father bringing home someone famous that is in danger. she is to help her father keep this person safe. There is a lot more than this, including a little love.

The main character in this story looks and acts just like my best friend Monica. I love this book! It's just so funny. Not a realistic ending, but a great book anyway.
Hoping to stumble on another Young Adult favorite I picked this up. But alas it was no Hunger Games, Twilight, or even Mediator Series type book. It was just ho hum.

I loved this book. It was SO cute.
If one loves romantic comedies, one should definitely pick up this work by Jo Edwards.
It had me laughing from start to finish.
This was one of my favorite Simon Pulse Rom Coms so far. I feel like the last couple I've read have been somewhat lame. But this one was really cute.
