She’s been trained to kill a man with a paper clip, tail a mark without his knowledge, is a master of disguises, and once during a training jumped out of a five-story building using nothing but an embroidered hankie as a parachute. She’s the star student at Blackwood Academy. Only instead of excelling at normal collegiate activities like keg stands and frat parties, she’s an expert marksman, speaks seven languages, is skilled at covert affairs, and can hack into any computer. She’s only a few months away from graduation and, hopefully, a coveted spot as an agent for the underground anti-terrorist agency, known only as Black X.
But is Spy Girl ready?
And at what cost?
Jillian Dodd grew up on a farm in Nebraska, where she developed a love for Midwestern boys and Nebraska football. She has drank from a keg in a cornfield, attended the University of Nebraska, got to pass her candle, and did have a boy ask her to marry him in a bar. She met her own prince in college, and they have two amazing children, a Maltese named Sugar Bear, and two Labrador puppies named Camber Lacy and Cali Lucy. She is the author of the That Boy Trilogy and The Keatyn Chronicles Series.
So I just finished Jillian’s latest release and I now want to make everyone I know read this book. I loved the world Jillian Dodd created in Spy Girl; it left me smiling and feeling desperate for more. It had a fun and captivating the plotline – plus it was filled with tempting new romances to obsess over. It’s a great book.
The main character, X is currently student at the exclusive and private Blackwell Academy – a school that trains gifted young adults the art of being an assassins. She is enrolled there because as a teenager, X was orphaned and all she’s truly had is with her from her previous life is her desire for revenge. X’s ultimate goal in life it to hunt down the man who murdered her mother. It motivates her studies and has put her at the top of her class.
Her whole world changes when she is pulled out of school to protect a prince. X becomes Huntley von Allister – an elaborate role created for her mission. Suddenly, she is swept up into a world filled in excess – money, power and sexy as hell men. It’s exciting and confusing for her because she has no clue why her first mission would put her so permanently in one role.
Thanks to all of the drama, I got to experience how badass Huntley was. I couldn’t wait to see what she did next and I devoured this book. Everything about her story pulls you in – the drama of figuring out who is after Lorenzo (The Prince), her budding romances (YES, that is plural!!) and unfolding conspiracy surrounding her parents death. It’s seriously awesome.
Jillian Dodd is a go-to author for me because she always gives me the most amazing character to obsess about. She writes about smart and charming heroines who are a little mischievous and highly spirited. Plus she always couples them with swoon worthy men who I can’t get enough of. I freaking love her books!!
Moment to moment, I couldn’t wait to see what Huntley did next and that is why I think Spy Girl is a must read romance. I highly recommend everyone check this book out.
