A One Fine Day Novel
Two men, one lie, and a whole bunch of trouble.
Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—whom Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.
FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best. But between Marty’s mother and his ex, Luke might’ve bitten off more than he can chew, and Marty’s knack for finding trouble might ruin more than just his sister’s wedding.
Marty Valdez has a bad habit of making people up. It started with a fictional little sister in high school and it’s continued to the present day with a hot underwear-model boyfriend. Unfortunately, his sister’s wedding is prompting his family to demand to meet the mysterious boyfriend they’ve heard about, but never met.
Luke Myers is an undercover FBI agent whose cover just got blown, and the dangerous cartel who wants him dead will stop at nothing. He needs to lay low and get the hell out of dodge until his partner and the FBI can help him.
When Marty catches Luke trying steal his car it’s serendipity for both of them. Marty talks Luke into attending a family dinner to prove to everyone once and for all that his hottie boyfriend, Tim Drake, really exists, and Luke can lay low and regroup for a few hours. When the dinner goes even better than expected Luke ends up sticking around for a little while longer.
When Marty’s penchant for finding trouble finds him in the middle of Luke’s case, it’s up to Luke to keep this funny, smart, cute guy that he’s quickly falling for safe.
I mean, sure, it’s highly improbable, filled with serendipitous coincidence, and so predictable you can see it all coming a mile away, but Jacob Z. Flores writes the characters and the plot for Undercover Boyfriend in such a way that it was just a pleasure for me to read.
It’s a fun, quick page turner, filled with humor and even a bit of heat. I gobbled this up like candy and that’s good enough for me.
