Publisher's Summary

For a singer and a spy, love might be mission impossible.

Jaxon Powers has what most only dream of. Fame. Fortune. Gold records and Grammy awards. Lavish hotel suites and an endless parade of eager bedmates. He’s adored all over the world - even in the remote, repressive country of Vasnytsia, where the tyrannical dictator is a big fan. The State Department hopes a performance might improve US relations with a dangerous enemy. But it means Jaxon’s going in alone...with one exception.

Secret agent Reid Stanfill has a covert agenda with global ramifications. Duty means everything to him, even when it involves protecting a jaded rock star. Jaxon and Reid’s mutual attraction is dangerous under Vasnytsia’s harsh laws - and matters get even worse when they’re trapped inside the borders. 

Romance will have to wait...assuming they make it out alive.

Music and suspense

I‘d looked forward to listening to this book. I mean a spy on a secret mission and a musician invited to a country with closed borders. It was a book I just needed to listen to.

Jaxon Powers is living the life so many dream about. The life of a rock star. He has the fame and fortune, the adoration from the masses. When he’s invited to a remote country with closed borders and a tyrannical dictator he naturally hesitates to accept the gig. His manager persuades him and off he and a new assistant and translator, Reid Stanfill flies. Their visit is filled with supervised outings but things are not what they seem and neither is Reid.

There is a certain formula to the Dreamspun Desires books. The instant love, the fluffiness and high doses of sugar. The relationships are usually lightning-fast and the plot isn’t all that deep. That’s standard for this series and something you know going in. With The Spy’s Love Song I also got the political intrigue, assassination attempts and a few bouts of suspense on top of the rest. Sure the plot in general was very farfetched but I guess that’s also par for course.

Drew Bacca was a bit of a hit and miss with me. I loved his enthusiasm for his narration. That he was actually singing when Jaxon was singing, but well, he really should stick with narrating and leave the singing to the musicians ;) I also really loved his impersonation of Sean Connery’s James Bond. I could really see him before me, standing in the bar saying “Shaken, not stirred”. However, for the most part his narration didn’t work for me as he put the emphasis on the wrong words. It made the narration feel a bit off and kept me to fully enjoy the book.
