“The one my mom warmed me about when I was younger. That one girl who would come out of nowhere, grab hold, make me feel something I never had before, then rip me apart with some unfathomable truth.”

I am so behind on this review. And the only things I have to blame it on is summer and a very needy 2yr old. Because one thing is for sure…it certainly wasn't the book's fault. Oh no. This book was so much fun, very steamy, and a lot of mysterious. It had characters that I clung to from the start and a plot that kept me hooked the whole time. Yep, this book had it all.

Seriously. This book was so much fun. I loved Gia and the predicaments she constantly found herself in with her job. The Duplici

I had eagerly been waiting to read this and was finally able to download it onto my tablet after some technical issues! And OMG was it worth the wait! With the descriptive wording, I had an immediate imagine of what the characters looked like and if I had to cast it as a major motion picture, I know which actors I would choose! I loved Mark from the beginning. He sounds like the guy every girl needs: hot, passionate, gentle, romantic and stubborn. Gia was a lot of fun and I liked how she was ind ...more

While I was searching for a lighthearted romantic comedy, Spied, by new-to-me author J.M. Miller, caught my eye. After reading the sample, I knew this was the kind of story I was looking for. What I didn't expect was how much I ended up loving it.
The unique storyline kept me engaged and the pacing was on point. Mark was the kind of hero who was easy to fall in love with. He didn't have secrets, made a decent living and his family meant everything.
Although Gia had been hurt before, it hadn't ru

Spied is deliciously fun, decadently sweet, and sinfully sexy! Only J.M. Miller can throw romantic comedy and a good old fashioned whodunnit into a blender and pull out nail-biting perfection. Gia and Mark had me laughing from page one!

Gia Keats had her heart broken in college, and it's stayed with her. She now works both sides of love's dirty business, by helping in a bridal shop during the day, and then clocking hours for Duplicity, outing all the cheating people. Both jobs make sure that she stays out of love's sight. But this all changes when she gets caught on one of her stakeouts, by a super hot maintenance man. Mark Foster has no desire to find love. He just hooks up with the hot tourists who are just looking for a good ...more

This story was just a fun, light, entertaining romantic comedy that kept my interest through the entire book. You couldn't help but chuckle at some of the predicaments that Gia got herself into while spying on the cheaters. Mark was charming too.

This was a hilarious and sweet novel.Quiet better than what I was expecting since its the first book of the author's that I am reading.

What a really fun read! Swoon away. This story is romantic and hilarious. The characters fit the plot perfectly and it was easy to follow. I mean really, I just couldn't stop laughing during the whole adult store moment. I really needed the laugh. Kinda wish it was made into a movie because the picture I created from the look on Gia face was enough to make me burst!

This is a fun rom-com read with a dash of suspense. Gia doesn't want to believe in love. She's cynical after witnessing cheating hearts as a P.I. All that could change when she meet maintenance man, Mark. When they keep bumping into one another Gia hope her undercover job isn't blown. She's torn between her attraction and her duty to complete the job for the client. Funny, sexy and romantic with an HEA. Loved the ending. It wasn't your tradition HEA.

Oh My God, this book was amazing! It’s unlike any other romantic comedy I’ve read, with the little touch of mystery that comes with spying. From the first page you are captivated by the first scene that comes in line. It’s so weird but so funny. And there, you meet the main characters Gia and Mark, who are attracted to each other in an instant. Their connection is undeniable.

Gia works in a bridal shop during the day helping the blushing bride, by night she does the exact opposite as a private investigator to catch the groom cheating. This is a fun and flirty romantic comedy. Just what you need if you want a laugh. It was a fast and easy read. Its written well and it flows good too.

Mark is a maintenance technician that stumbles upon her by accident. She is spying on someone to see if they are cheating. She gets so caught up that she doesn’t hear him behind her. He t

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love JM Miller and all her YA work… that being said, this book is completely different from anything of hers I’ve ever read before! Spied is a romantic comedy, and it lives up to that name, with a little heat & mystery thrown in as well. The book starts off with Gia working at her side job, catching people cheating on their significant others - and you meet Mark almost immediately. He works at the resort where she is doing some spying. (Al

This book was a fun, easy, romantic comedy, with plenty of heart and an element of mystery. There were quite a few moments that left me giggling at the antics of the characters.

Gia works at her family’s bridal boutique, celebrating true love. Her other job, however, is running her own business, Duplicity, where she tracks down and exposes cheaters for her clients. Jaded from her own past relationship, she hardly believes there are any good guys left.

What does one do when they have become skeptical of true love and lost faith in the trust that goes into a relationship? Why, work in a bridal store, right? Our heroine, Gia, is willing to support her aunt and sister in the family business that is all about weddings, working side by side with them to help brides make their dreams come true—but this is not where she finds passion. In fact, behind the scenes, Gia has begun her own business—Duplicity—in which she works as a PI, spying on cheaters i ...more

This was a clever, funny read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
I liked Gia although at times I found that she was a little ditzy almost. The dichotomy of her life was pitched perfectly by the author, but I suppose she really was a romantic in all senses of the word, she wanted to make sure that romance was the winner, no matter what. She gave every bride that walked through the doors of the bridal shop that she worked in the best of her, her undivided attention and the full bridal experience

I can't tell you how much I loved this book! It was the BEST surprise! I've read two other books by Ms. Miller and they were so different! I loved those, too but this hit the spot, getting me out of a funk/hangover.

Our heroine, Gia, has been jaded, so she decided to help others from said heartache by opening up her very own business. It kind of butted heads with her other job, where she encountered people that were in love and were preparing to tie the knot.

Our hero, Mark, stumbles upon her in

O.M.G...This book! It is chock full of so much fun and wit. I loved every second of this book. Spied is Contemporary Romance at it's finest with comedy thrown into the mix. This is a fantastic read!

Gia has two jobs. At one of them, she works at the family business at a bridal boutique. The second job is her secret baby. She spies and catches cheaters in the act. It is while she is spying that she meets Mark. He catches her watching her target making out with someone he shouldn't be. The chemistr

This was my first book by this author. I really enjoyed reading Spied. It had a little romance, suspense, and comedy and don't forget the cobbler. Some parts were hilarious and I loved it! I enjoyed meeting Gia and Mark and the rest of the Spied crew. My favorite character was Gia and her talk of being invisible and about the "fun hole" and her sister Kass was funny just being herself.

I haven't read a romantic comedy in a while but Wow, what a fun book! This was the fifth book I've read by JM Miller and she always keeps it interesting with unique storylines. Like always this was written with a little hint of mystery to keep you turning the pages even faster. Gia and Mark are great. They had good banter back and forth (and with her sisters too). I also liked how she kept bringing up the same little inside jokes between them, so realistic to a new relationship. I think I had a ...more

I am never too sure what to expect from a new author, to me, but Oh My Dam! As soon as this book landed on my Kindle I decide to get stuck in. Couple hours later I was sat reeling from an emotional roller coaster.

Did I enjoy this book? Definite yes. I love the way she writes. The story isn't your usual romance plot line: guy does wrong and keeps secrets. No this time it's the Girl you are pleading with to tell the truth.
