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.
Undercover Boyfriend by Jacob Z. Flores is a book depicting the collision of two worlds. Marty Valadez is a twenty-five-year-old comic book writer who lives with his Italian family. Luke Myers is an FBI agent whose cover within a dangerous drug cartel was recently blown. They’re both in trouble, but their problems are in no way equal.
I’ll start by saying that I loved Luke from page one. He had the right mixture of sensitivity and fortitude. His actions all made sense to me, except for one – his pursuit of Marty. Marty has invented a boyfriend to show up his ex. He relays a story from high school, and in my opinion, he doesn’t seem to have matured since then.
Undercover Boyfriend was a fast-paced read with solid action and a hot FBI agent. The author is clearly talented. I would have given the book a higher rating had it not been for the bad taste Marty put in my mouth. Three stars.
