”The love and tension between them [Jack and Willow] just went beyond the pages.” ~Under the Covers

Ms. Robinson is a new to me author and though December was a good month of new author discoveries for me, I wish I’ve known about this author before. I am not one to read out of order but when I accepted this book, I did not know it was the 3rd installment. But things happen for a reason and all that and I’m glad I took it for review. I enjoyed this

I think this is her best book of the series. Its quite predictable in how the hero and heroine dance around each other; Jack trying not to give away his identity and Willow trying all sorts of tricks to trip him and prove he's her husband..
I'm beginning to get Gina Robinson's style of writing... its not the sort of heavy, emotional romantic suspense I'm used to but a rather light-hearted, fun read.

An Agent Ex Novel

The game is definitely on

Jack Pierce is a spy that rose like a phoenix and came back from the dead with new physical features and old heartache. Jack had been gone for two years from everything he held dear to serve the Government to the best of his ability. Now Jack is going undercover in the town where his wife Willow started over after his supposed death.

Willow swears she would know Jack anywhere even with her Spidey Sense tingling. The minute she meets a man new to town name

Just when you think her last book can't be beat, Robinson's new book comes out, and she proves you wrong. A fun read with a believable storyline and wonderfully written characters. When Willow suspects newcomer "Con" to be her lare husband, it's natural that she asks for help from Drew and staci Fields (who were the lead characters in a prvious book). Great fun to read more about what happened to the Fields's, as well as to get a little insight into spy Chief Emmett Nelson (hoping Robinson conti ...more

This is a cute, light, pure cotton candy read. I enjoyed the (predictable) sweet story and it was easy to pick up even for just five minutes. A hot assassin husband underconver, an intuitive wife candy maker, a small town with a dash of drama... what more do you need? The thing I did not like is that the narrator would change mid page and there were a few times that it was confusing, causing me to go back a paragraph and reread.

Every single books from "Agent ex" series are awesome.
Gina Robinson writes better "spy" books than her other books ie duchess contests.

I’ve become a big fan of Gina Robinson’s Agent Ex novels. Every single couple showcased in this series are married, and the hero is an undercover spy. The heroines know about their husband’s work, and are supportive and very loving. In Live and Let Love (Agent Ex #3), Willow was told her husband Jack was killed in an explosion. Jack was hurt in an explosion, but wasn’t killed. He’s been hiding out in Rio for two years, along with a new face and a sexy accent, thanks to his boss, National Clande ...more

My Review:
You have to go into this series with simply a fun perspective on them. The books are a little silly, a little tongue in cheek, but they are wholly fun and entertaining for a light spy-adventure read.

This book is about Jack. As a reader of the series, we've known about Jack's death throughout the last two books so it was really nice to see him come back to life. This book takes place in a small town, centered around the apple festival and harvest. Willow, is Jack's widow, and she's the

Jack was supposedly killed in an explosion 2 years ago but the man who is now in Willow's town who calls himself Con seems an awful lot like Jack. Since Jack was a spy Willow isn't completely convinced that Jack is now dead. She wouldn't put it past the Agency to fake his death. Willow's more than determined to find out the truth.

Jack is in Orchard Bluff, the town where Willow lives, but he's not about to tell his wife that he's alive. An assassin is courting his wife and though Jack doesn't li

4.5 Stars

If you are looking for a fun and sexy contemporary romance with HOT spies and to die for assassins then look no further than this series. The 3rd book in an Agent Ex series by Gina Robinson has this and much more.

When Jack Pierce was blown up two years ago in a mission gone wrong he thought he was doing right by his wife and keeping her out of harms way. Yet, not everyone thought Jack died in the explosion. With a new name and new loo

Anyone who is interested in a romance type of novel that can get exciting at certain points will enjoy this book. This book can entertain many people because of the unexpected situations and will keep you on your feet. At the start you will almost always want Willow to find out that Jack is Con. Anyone can relate to this romance novel, it makes you think of that special someone and what you would do for them. This book would be great for anyone of mature age, because there is some sexual parts o ...more

My Booklist review:

Robinson’s third Agent Ex novel after Diamonds Are Truly Forever (2012) finds CIA agent Jack Pierce resurrected after an explosion has reportedly killed him. Now with extensive reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, he’s been assigned to kill the man whose job it was to kill him. Jack is excited about this assignment; if only his adversary hadn’t set up his operation in the same community where Jack’s “widow” lives. After the CIA confirmed Jack’s death, Willow has rebuilt

This was a cute enough of a read. It read a lot like the teeny-bopper books I occasionally picked up back in high school. That was until page 300 when things got a tad steamy. Then it was over. haha!

Anyway, I even skipped over a bunch. It turns out that I was just not interested in all of the spy stuff. Who would have thought? I love ridiculous love stories. This is kind of one of them. I should have loved this to pieces.

I liked this enough. What I didn't like was that at the literal end of t

Another great installment in the series. I am surprised she keeps finding angles that work for two "exes" to get back together. Tons of action, "organic apples", and some good ol' women's intuition make for a fun summer read.
I look foreard to reading more ny Gina Robindon. I loved the characters.
