Undercover by Eliot Grayson

 



Release Date: 03.29.2021



Synopsis:

Gabe wants Alec between the sheets…too bad Alec’s undercover already…

Rich kid. Party boy. Gabe is tired of the labels. He’s a smart guy, but ever since he got kicked out of grad school, people are only interested in his no-limit credit card and his pierced ears…and other places.

Tall, dark, and scowling Alec hates Vermont, with its artisanal-freaking-everything and its irritating people. To be fair, most people irritate Alec, including the FBI director who sent him here to investigate a smuggling scheme involving yoga mats. 

When one of the cutest twinks Alec’s ever seen takes an interest, Alec knows there’s an ulterior motive. No one with multi-colored hair, piercings, and an ass like that would want boring, serious Alec. The kid must be up to no good. Either way, Alec can’t blow his cover. If only he could keep his hands off of Gabe long enough to find out what he’s up to…

Can they ignore their explosive chemistry long enough to foil a smuggling ring? Or will their budding relationship sink faster than a yacht full of contraband?


Review:


Alec is an FBI agent who arrives in Burlington to investigate an international drug traffic.
He goes often to the Vino and Veritas bookstore to keep an eye on the streets without arousing suspicion, but here he is noted by Gabe an excentric scientific bookworm. So when Gabe gives him an unexpected gift, Alec thinks he has been compromised and that he has also found his drug dealer, but the resolution of the case can’t be so easy.
They start to going out together, and day after day Alec understands that Gabe isn’t the man he is looking for but he could be connected to him so he decides to keep lieing to him to get closer to the criminal.
Will Alec succeed to keep his job separate from his private life or will the lines blur?

I liked this story with the suspense and the mystery, even if it was a little slow on the love relationship side between the main characters, but it is justifiable for the undercover job of one and the probabile criminal activity of the other.

I liked the main characters, the seriousness of one and the colourful personality of the other make for an interesting relationship.
I've appreciated how Alec is not happy to lie to Gabe when he finds out that he is a good guy, and even he starts to have second thoughts but unfortunately he has a job to do. Alec also wants to make Gabe understand his real value and to make him regain his self confidence.

I recommend this book if you like a good mystery.
