*An Erotic Spy Thriller*

Adrenaline junkie Jessica Booker joined the CIA to take on bad guys and flirt with danger. And with perks like sleeping with hot foreign men added into the mix, well…it’s a pretty sweet deal.

Now in Paris, she’s about to take on her second assignment as an official agent but is caught off guard when her new handler turns out to be Sims, a sexy CIA instructor. Sims was hard enough to resist in the classroom—in the field, he's a dangerous distraction. To make matters worse, Jessica’s target is a gorgeous Frenchman who manages to put her in the most compromising positions—positions she doesn’t altogether mind.

With rogue agents, classified secrets, and tempting men at every turn, this mission will prove to be the first real test of her skills, both in and out of the bedroom.

Editorial Reviews

I ♥ Bookie Nookie Reviews - Bookie Nookie
This erotic spy thriller has a sexy and twisty plot that sucks the reader in from the very first page. I devoured it in one sitting, as I am certain you will too when you pick up this page-turner!
Goodreads (Top 10 Best Reveiwers) - Lisa P.
Charlie Evans' erotic spy thriller has a crazy good storyline that will keep you on your toes for the entirety of the book. Ms. Evans' also throws in a strong and self-assured heroine who knows what she wants, in and out of the bedroom. Throw together a great plot, well developed characters and a wonderful setting (Paris) and that is definitely a winning formula. I literally inhaled Agent of Desire and am now hooked on this sexy new series. I look forward to the next installment.

    I received the book from the author for review. I wasn't sure what to expect as I had just briefly glanced that it was a genre I enjoy. I enjoyed the book and Jessica is a great character that I look forward to following in the future. This was a fairly short read (91 pages) but Evans manages to develope the character of Jessica well and leave you with enough twist and turns in the story line to leave you guessing. Would reccomend to anyone who likes crime romance and will follow the story in the Jessica Booker series.

    Agent of Desire is Charlie Evans¿ debut novel, as well as the fi

    Agent of Desire is Charlie Evans’ debut novel, as well as the first book in her Jessica Booker series. It’s a fast paced, entertaining, and sexy story.

    Agent of Desire is told in the first person, from Jessica’s POV. There are a lot of things I liked about this story, including the way it unfolds, and all the twists and turns that kept me trying to figure out who the bad guys really are. It's nice to get this kind of story in which the heroine is the lead, and to see what is normally a man's world from a woman's perspective.

    Another thing I really like about it is the heroine. Jessica is a strong, intelligent woman, though she does make some mistakes – trusting the wrong people, to start with – but still in all, a great heroine. She’s got an attitude that screams “don’t mess with me” but she knows when she messes up and isn’t afraid to admit it. Not all heroines are as honest with themselves as Jessica is.

    It's not always easy to tell a story in first person POV and still be able to get inside the hearts and minds of all the characters involved and, I'm sorry to say, that's something I missed in this story. As much as I enjoyed Jessica, I didn’t feel the connection – the draw – between her and the other players.

    The hard thing about telling a tale from this point of view is that we're only going to get what the narrator (Jessica) gives us, and I really do think that’s where my inability to connect to anyone but her stems from. We got plenty of what's going on inside her, but not enough of what the others are feeling. In my opinion, with this being an erotic story, the sex scenes would have felt sexier had I gotten more of a reader/character connection.

    The bottom line: Ms. Evans is definitely a talented writer and I enjoyed this world she's created. Agent of Desire is an impressive debut novel and start to the Jessica Booker series.

    3.5 stars: I've been debating whether to round this rating up or round it down, but because I really do like Jessica, the world Ms. Evans has created and the potential this has to be a great series, I've decided to go with 4 stars on the Goodreads rating system.

    My thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

    If you're looking for an action packed, twisty, turning, erotic


    If you're looking for an action packed, twisty, turning, erotic quick read, look no further!
    Jessica Booker works as a spy for the CIA.

    She's a bit of a newbie, and she's on her second mission. Her sexy instructor Sims is her 'handler' for the case, and she can barely keep herself from handling him every time she sees him. But then there's this French guy...the target, Geoffrey...and then there's this other guy....

    I'm not normally one to go for sexually aggressive women. But Jessica has the PERFECT excuse to be a floozy, so the chick absolutely takes the opportunity and RUNS with it! Kudos to her...wish I had the excuse that I had to sleep with hotties in order to preserve national security.

    Problem is, her line of work and her lack of friends and loved ones makes Jessica a very lonely woman. Her job as a super sleuth, kick ass agent is not conducive to relationships. And she knows that getting involved with any of the men that are on her radar is bad move.

    "He lifts my chin up so that we face each other. His eyes are filled with contentment and affection. He thinks we've made a connection. I reach up and kiss him because I can't look into his eyes. I don't like men looking at me that way, like I'm potential girlfriend material. The idea makes me want to run, but I can't. I have a job to do."

    I was sad for Jessica. Her intentions are noble, and at times she just seems like a scared, lonely girl doing what she thinks is best. She also is in dire need of someone to have her back, but with the twists and turns every other page in this book, it's hard for me to say who I even want her to be with, or who won't betray her. Her trust isn't given lightly, and for very good reason!!!

    I was impressed with how the suspense was handled in this book. The spy aspect was very well executed...it read like a movie, and had me all tense and ready for action. Everything actually made sense, and I swear I heard the "Mission Impossible" theme playing in my head. Well done, Miss Evans!

    If I had one complaint about the book, I wish that it had been longer...that's good, right?! I think that it Jessica's character in particular could have benefited from more character development. She has some depth there that should be more apparent, I think. And I could have connected with her more. However, I see that Jessica's story continues with another book from this talented emerging author, and I have a feeling that that we will get to know her a lot more with each new installment. I love when a character unfolds like this!! And I'm very much looking forward to Jessica's next adventure.

    Damn! That was hot! AGENT OF DESIRE, the first book in the excit

    Damn! That was hot! AGENT OF DESIRE, the first book in the exciting JESSICA BOOKER series, is chocked full of super-sexy spies that will make your panties melt.

    Jessica Booker is a badass CIA agent on a mission to uncover the truth…about what? That’s just it…she’s not sure. In the world of espionage, nothing is ever as it seems and this mission is no different. Jessica must remain focused, but that proves to be very difficult with all the hot, hard-bodied men that surround her – between the rogue agents, her “handler” and the nerd-hottie they are after, she has to stay alert an on her on her toes as danger seems to lurk around every corner. 

    This erotic spy thriller has a sexy and twisty plot that sucks the reader in from the very first page. I devoured it in one sitting, as I am certain you will too when you pick up this page-turner!

    Holy Moly, sexy female agent time! I can honestly say I have nev

    Holy Moly, sexy female agent time! I can honestly say I have never read a book quite like this before; a hot erotic, spy thriller with a female lead like I did in Agent of Desire by Charlie Evans. Jessica Booker plays sexy spy agent “Lori” as she is known undercover. Jessica is in Paris on her first big mission by herself. She uses her sex appeal to her advantage to gain access to her target Geoffrey; a sexy Frenchman. As Jessica is on her mission things begin to get off course and now Jessica doesn’t know who to trust when other agents become traders leaving Jessica alone trying to keep Geoffrey and her alive.




    Jessica Booker is a total bad ass alpha female! I thought it was a joy to read a female lead in a nontraditional way. She sleeps with whomever she wants - even if it’s just to gain access to them, she can kick any guys butt, and she is a spy. What can be better than that? I also really enjoyed the setting; taking place in Paris was a bit different and also unique. I really enjoyed Ms. Evans writing style and her fast pace in Agent of Desires. I think if it was any longer it would have been dragged out, this was the perfect length for a book such as this.




    As I said, I really liked reading a character like Jessica Book a lot more than I thought I would. I am looking forward to reading book two and find out what is next for Jessica. Agent of Desire ends not so much a cliff hanger but it is definitely a “to be continued” ending.




    I give Agent of Desires 3.5 Stars

    I really enjoyed this fast-paced erotic thriller. I loved Jessic

    I really enjoyed this fast-paced erotic thriller. I loved Jessica! The entire story is told in first person from her POV, and she was a fun and interesting character. Since this is the first book in the series, I'm hoping we get to know even more about her in the future. The plot was exciting and easy to follow. I loved that the story took place in Paris. There were just enough descriptions to keep it interesting without ever boring me with details. 
    This wasn't a romance by any stretch. Although there is an interest, there really wasn't any relationship building or strong dialogue to connect the characters. Although they did save each other's life a few times! I knew that going into the story, but a romantic element would have made this story phenomenal for me. I hope we get to see that in the future.
    On a side note, I'm always nervous reading the first book by any author. I get concerned about grammar and spelling errors on top of plot issues. What an extremely pleasant surprise not to find any of that!
