#BookReview #TeaserTuesday Love Undercover by @NanaPrah Women's Fiction

Welcome back to Teaser Tuesday hosted by Should Be Reading where we share a spoiler free teaser from a book we're reading.
This week I'm reading Love Undercover by +Nana Prah 

Here's the teaser

He shouldn't be doing this. Fraternizing with an inmate was hovering in dangerous territory. For the first time in his career, he couldn’t bring himself to care about the rules.

~ page 104, pdf Love Undercover by Nana Prah 

Here's the blurb


The last thing she expects is to fall in love with a prison guard…

Hotshot Secret Service Agent, Sarita Cerez is thrown into a medium security prison—for work. Her job is to protect the daughter of the president of South Korea. She never envisioned making friends with illegal immigrants or falling head over heels for one of the guards. Now the clandestine activity, which is integral to protecting her charge, may destroy her only chance at love.


He's never fraternized with the inmates—until he met her…

Matthew Carter always plays by the rules, which includes maintaining a strictly professional relationship with the inmates in his charge. But when Sarita saunters onto the unit, all bets are off. Her status as a deportee with a permanent ticket to Columbia means they can never be together, but try as he might, this doesn’t stop him from risking his career for her.

He's a man who values honesty above all else, and she lies for a living. Can two people from such different worlds find any common ground?

Here's my review


This for me is a story of two sides.

On the one hand you had the story of the developing relationship between Sarita who is a Secret Service agent that was sent undercover to a prison and Matthew, a prison guard in charge of her as an inmate. How can true love grow between two of them when she is there under false pretences and there are rules that forbid them from being together. The conflict was very spot on and I loved the way the author paced this out.

On the other hand there is a story about prison life for female immigrants. We as readers get to take a peek into their lives and the reasons they became incarcerated. This brings a very strong human element to this romance as we witness Sarita's interactions with her fellow inmates. The friendships that develop are very moving.

Overall, this is a well-written book and balances, life, humor and romance well. I think this story works well as women's fiction as well as romance. Fans of sweet romance will love it. A solid 5-Lovebites read.

  2. I've not seen one with this premise before. And with her the prisoner I'm particularly fascinated.
