About the Author
Gay romance that is sinfully charming Jacob Z. Flores lives a double life. During the day, he is a respected college English professor and mid-level administrator. At night and during his summer vacation, he loosens the tie and tosses aside the trendy sports coat to write man on man fiction, where the hardass assessor of freshmen level composition turns his attention to the firm posteriors and other rigid appendages of the characters in his fictional world. Summers in Provincetown, Massachusetts, provide Jacob with inspiration for his fiction. The abundance of barely clothed man flesh and daily debauchery stimulates his personal muse. When he isn’t stroking the keyboard, Jacob spends time with his daughter. They both represent a bright blue blip in an otherwise predominantly red swath in south Texas.

Two men, one lie, and a whole bunch of trouble.

Marty Valdez is in serious trouble. His sister’s wedding is around the corner, and everyone expects to meet Marty’s super-successful underwear model boyfriend—whom Marty invented. Now Marty has to produce a half-naked hottie or suffer the worst humiliation of his life.

FBI agent Luke Myers is in serious trouble. He’s been working undercover to take down a dangerous drug cartel, but his cover’s blown and he needs to disappear. Luckily, a geeky yet intriguing comic book artist gives him the perfect opportunity. Luke just has to pretend to be his boyfriend, and pretending is what he does best. But between Marty’s mother and his ex, Luke might’ve bitten off more than he can chew, and Marty’s knack for finding trouble might ruin more than just his sister’s wedding.

Undercover Boyfriend is an action-packed story with lots of twists and turns to keep you engaged and turning the pages to see what will happen next. There is plenty of humor along with bullet dodging, family drama, wedding preparations, lies, and deception. Separating the good guys from the bad, and willing them to prevail, makes for an entertaining read. 

Marty Valdez is a comic book artist and self-confessed nerd. He has spent his life creating fictional characters, on and off the page, including a hot cover model boyfriend named Tim. Unfortunately as his sisters wedding approaches, with his arrogant ex as best man, Marty is in desperate need of a man to play Tim. Humiliation in front of his family will be bad enough. Facing his cheating boyfriend and owning up to the lie will be even worse. 

FBI agent Luke Myers is in much more serious trouble. Having had his cover blown, whilst working inside a Mexican drug cartel, Luke is now in the crosshairs of some very dangerous people. Needing somewhere to lay low until he can get word to his partner, Luke runs into Marty as he's trying to steal Marty's car. A discussion follows. A deal is made. Luke will play Tim, and Marty will protect the down on his luck, almost, car thief. 

When Luke meets Marty's mother the ensuing inquisition has nothing on any FBI interrogation. Getting through the pre-wedding parties without being discovered, and enduring the wrath of Marty's family, and ex may be even harder than not getting shot. When Marty brings more trouble to their door it's hard to see who is in more danger, and who really needs protection. Telling Marty the truth about his situation may be the only way Luke can protect him 

Drug cartel assassins, interfering family, a traitor in their midst, and an unexpected attraction, make for a rollercoaster ride to the altar. If Luke and Marty can keep their secrets, and survive until the wedding, it will be a miracle. 

I read Undercover Boyfriend In one sitting. It was fast paced and didn't have obvious signposts to predict the direction it would take. It had many surprises that I didn't see coming and only a few that I did. I found it to be a great afternoon read. Not too taxing, some chuckles amidst the mayhem, and a satisfying conclusion.
