Spies, Lies, and Allies

Spies, Lies, and Allies: A Love Story by Lisa Brown Roberts: 

Summers are supposed to be fun, right? Not mine. I’ve got a job at my dad’s company, which is sponsoring a college scholarship competition. I just found out that, in addition to my job assisting the competing interns, I’m supposed to vote for the winner. Totally not what I signed up for.

My boss is running the competition like it’s an episode of Survivor. Then there’s Carlos, who is, well, very distracting––in a good way. But I can’t even think about him like that because fraternizing on the job means instant disqualification for the intern involved.

As if that’s not enough, an anonymous informant with insider intel is trying to sabotage my dad’s company on social media...and I’m afraid it's working.

Much as I’d love to quit, I can’t. Kristoffs Never Quit is our family motto. I just hope there’s more than one survivor by the end of this summer. 

Review: ♥ ♥

The Breakfast Club meets The Apprentice. One summer to change fate.

Laurel is a huge Star Wars fan and has an overactive imagination. She's a super nerd with all the charms that go with it. She's funny, smart and desperate to spend more time with her dad. He is always busy and trying to run a successful business. He is missing the important milestones in her life and she's come up with a plan to get more time with him. Laurel convinces her dad to let her help out with the interns for the summer. The best candidate will get a chance to win a college scholarship and Laurel is the inside man who will help them choose the winner.

The interns get off to a rocky start. Jason is late and doesn't remember Laurel at first, even though they go to school together. He's a jock and fairly stereotypical. Laurel's hoping Jason has an inner geek but she will have to settle for sweet.

Then there is the supermodel artist girl (Ashley), Trish who's crazy Dad already works for the company, the good looking smart accountant wannabe (Elijah) and Carlos who knows too much.

The team are opposites and would have never made friends if it wasn't for the intern.

The competition gets a little out of hand but everyone wants the prize. Well except Trish. The stakes are high and everyone is super ambitious. As we look at these chapters we see more than the pretty model.

Laurel's dad sets a few rules for the interns. Just some basic office protocols. One rule is to not date your co-workers or they will be disqualified. Laurel never hoped to find a summer romance or friendships. The summer has highs and lows but it all pulls together in the end.

Spies, Lies and Allies is a charming witty read. It's for the inner geek. Laurel is a huge Star Wars fan and uses references in everyday life. I like Star Wars but I'm not a die-hard fan and at times the references got a little much. Laurel is a character that grows on you. She's fun and a complete dork. She's totally lovable in the end.

Sassy writing style and some eye-rolling jokes. Great book. 4 stars out of 5.
