He'd be a terrible spy.
But he might make a good husband.
Call him Teague. Finn Teague. A jack-of-all-trades, he's been everything from ski instructor to cook, but he's always craved a job that wouldn't bore the living daylights out of him. He longs to be a shaken-not-stirred kind of guy but knows it'll never happen. Currently a lawyer, Double-Oh-No spends most of his time in his L.A. apartment, ogling his two gorgeous neighbors -- a view to a thrill -- and fantasizing that he's a secret agent.
Amber Robinson, an elite operative for a top-secret government agency, is tracking a suspected terrorist's mistress. Her hunky neighbor Finn seems to be doing the same and Amber suspects he's a spy -- just a very, very bad one. Setting out to seduce him and crack his secret identity (yes, she has the best job ever) Amber unwittingly takes Finn on a passion-filled, high-stakes adventure that'll teach him to never say never again.

Phineus 'Finn' Teague is a 37 year-old lawyer who hates his job. He often fantasizes about being a super spy. Dangerous missions, wild women, and saving the world would be all in a day's work. Instead, Finn is a jack-of-all-trades type of person. The closest he's ever come to spy work was computer hacking, and that is all behind him now. Even though Finn should be doing his paperwork, he finds himself staring at the gorgeous new neighbor and daydreaming. ................... Amber Robinson is an elite operative for a government agency, Unit 7. She and Brandon are keeping tabs on a former Navy SEAL and Black Ops commander gone bad and his current flame, Diana Traynor. Finn is an unknown player to Amber and Brandon. His background check screams civilian, but he is keeping a very close eye on Diana. Was he a civilian, an agent with a deep cover, or has a third party entered the picture? Amber would have to stick very close to him to find out. ................. ***** This book is as outrageous as watching a James Bond 007 movie! Danger lurks in the back ground throughout the entire story and how I love all those spy gadgets! The action and romances builds quickly (I found myself on the edge of my seat more than once while reading) and the climatic ending is awesome! This is a Keeper! *****
