Publisher's Summary

My name is Blue - insert a mood-related joke here - and I’m a femme fatale in training. My goal is to join the CIA. Unfortunately, I have a tiny issue with birds, and the closest I’ve come to my dream is working for a government agency that’s disturbingly up-to-speed on everyone’s sexts, rants in private Facebook groups, and secret family chocolate-chip cookie recipes.

I know I’m a spy cliché, that agent who works at a desk but craves fieldwork. However, I have a plan: I’m going to infiltrate the secretive Hot Poker Club, where I’ve spotted a mysterious, sexy stranger who I’m convinced is a Russian spy.

And once I'm in? All I have to do is seduce the presumed spy without falling for him, so I can expose his true identity and prove my femme fatale bona fides to the CIA. I never lose concentration at work, so that'll be an absolute breeze for me. Oh, and did I mention he's sexy?

I’m doing it for my country, not my ovaries, I pinky swear.

Warning: Now that you’ve finished reading this, your device will self-destruct in five seconds.

NOTE: This is a stand-alone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedy featuring a quirky, spy-movie-obsessed heroine, a scorching hot maybe-Russian, several terrifying tales about birds, and lots of text debates about the relative cuteness of animals. If any of the above is not your cup of tea, run far, far away. Otherwise, buckle up for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.

Fun, smexy hi-jinks!

Audiobook: Narrators - Erin Mallon & Joe Arden

Ms. Mallon did a great job narrating the latest rom-com by this writing duo. She brought Blue to life for me in a way I wasn’t expecting. Her voice was just the perfect pitch and inflection. All the wackiness that is Blue became real to me as I listened to this story unfold. Mr. Arden narrated the epilogue and while he didn’t carry as much weight as Mallon, who could ever not love him?


Oh my goodness! This is ridiculously hot and steamy with all kinds of smexy hi-jinks going on from the first page! The heroine was hilarious with her quirky issues that were perfectly displayed. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the book. Max was harder to follow as we never have his point of view, but that actually made this all the more interesting. I couldn’t wait to reach the end and learn what all his secrets were and if/how Blue discovered them.

Loved it!

This book makes me happy! In fact all of the books following the Hyman sisters put a smile on my face. The situations that these sisters find themselves in are absolutely one of a kind and priceless.

Hilarious!!

Maxim (Max) and Blue’s story is fast-paced, sexy, and hilarious. Max is such a handsome man, enigmatic, caring, and supportive. Blue is a colorful character, beautiful, sassy, and determined. Her goal is to become a CIA spy. She is a woman on a mission! She has a big family, very entertaining, and eccentric! You have to listen to this story to know more about them! Some scenes are hilarious! The cast of supporting characters is impressive and I would love to know more about them. Erin Mallon is a fantastic narrator! She does an outstanding job with all the voices and acting. I liked the Epilogue read by Joe Arden. This is definitely a laugh-out-loud Romantic Comedy, and I HIGHLY recommend it. If you like Romantic Comedy, this one is for you!

Fantastically Funny!!

This series makes me blush! That first chapter really dives right into that wildly inappropriate and funny humor from this author. That's your warning, if you aren't into that kind of humor, you won't get these books. But if you are ready for a lot of laugh-out-loud, blush inducing moments, then this book is for you.

These sisters that are in this series just crack me up. It seems that each of them have some crazy phobia that really creates some funny moments in the story. I will say that Blue's phobia isn't all that crazy though. I knew of a person who is also afraid of birds. Birds are everywhere so I'm not sure how a person functions with this phobia. What I do love was how Max didn't blink an eye to her fear and even gallantly protected her from them.

Max was wonderful. Really all the heroes in this series are. I love that they except the craziness in the heroines and love them all the more. Funny, funny book!

Hilarious and scorching hot!

I can’t stop laughing from beginning to the end. This story is hilarious and scorching hot. Blue has a quirky personality and she is so funny when she tries to be a femme fatale. She and Max, aka the Russian spy she’s trying to expose, have a scorching hot chemistry and dang the sexy times were HOT! HOT! HOT!

The narration was excellent! Erin Mallon perfectly captures all the comedic moments. And hearing Machete was more hilarious than when I was eyeball reading.

Even though he only did the epilogue it was still a treat to hear Joe Arden.

Not Your Typical Spy Story

Another funny, cute, steamy and entertaining romcom from Misha Bell! Absolutely loved Blue and Max. They were too cute together. Max was a breath of fresh air. He was charming, sexy and loved animals, and was so easy to fall for. He was the perfect match for Blue. Blue was just as quirky and funny as her sisters. I loved how she was determined to prove the CIA wrong for rejecting her spy application. She is definitely one of my favorite heroines so far.
I started reading the ebook and then finished this on audio to get the full experience of Blue’s silly femme fatale-ish spy shenanigans. It was a delight to listen to this and loved every minute of it. Erin Mallon’ solo narration was phenomenal! She captured Blue’s quirky personality perfectly, from her fear of birds to the funny spy antincs she did all to catch and seduce a Russian spy. Joe Arden’s epilogue narration was the best way to end this book. We got a glimpse of Max’s thoughts and how much in love he was with Blue, even after meeting her crazy hippie parents.
If you’re looking for a funny and steamy romcom with a hopeful femme fatale-ish spy twist, give this audiobook a listen.

Max & Blue

6 identical sisters and a set of twins. How had can it be to be your own person? Blue is ready to start her new career and find out! She is a spy, ready to go out in the field. The Hot Poker Club is where she is going to start. Infiltrating it will not be easy, but she is ready. She finds Max, the spy she needs to expose, and will make him fall for her, find his secrets making her a credible spy. Max is taken with Blue and loves her quirkiness. But will he still feel he same when he finds out her motives? Funny, slow burning and so much fun, Misha Bell once again keeps me smiling. This family is like coming home, encouraging and helping each other as they find their paths. And when Max meets her parents, I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. It’s a fun and eccentric family, the couple is engaging and story amazing.

Narrated by the talented Erin Mallon, we are treated to her many voices and comedic timing. I love her, and each time she gives voice to these characters, I know who is speaking and find myself laughing out loud as I fall in love.
