5.0 out of 5 stars First Bliss book is good kick off to series!! 1 Feb 2003
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dorchester Publishing has a new monthly series of books - each a different tale about the female agents of B.L.I.S.S. a take off, obviously, of the James Bond books. The covers even has the same flavour of the 60's Ian Fleming novels that went on to be movies. First up is Nina Bangs with From Boardwalk With Love, in February you get charming Lisa Cach with Dr. Yes, and Queen of the Hysterics Lynsay Sands' The Loving Daylight (have already read this one and it's Lynsay at her side splitting-best!). Each book is done by one of Dorchester's brightest stars and if they keep up, we are in for some wonderful treats. I am especially hoping to see more out of Lynsay's characters - they are ripe for further adventures!!
From Boardwalk with Love is a good kick off for the series, from the talented Nina, giving you the first of this tongue-firmly-through-check spy romps. Camryn O'Brien is agent 36DD, on her first assignment. If is not enough to shake a gal's confidence, super-spy, double agent Jace Sentori is on her trail. He may or may not be the enemy, but he is determined to kill Camryn. As with Lynsay's book, Camyrn get some help (?) from retired B.L.I.S.S. agents, armed a secret weapon that needs to be kept secret for it more dangerous to her than the enemy - thus ready, Camryn sallies forth on her charger...hum, pink Cadillac to save the world and buckleswashes with L.O.V.E.R. - League of Violent Economic Revolutionaries - eh, tree-huggers gone radical?? She ends up on teeny weeny isle off South America, that has been set up to be a reflection of the game Monopoly, where Camryn must battle evil doers to keep the richest man in the world alive (Bill Gates? :-o). Trying to prevent her - other than Jace out to kill her - is Zed (no, not an escapee from MIB!). This Zed is L.O.V.E.R.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over James Bond! Very highly recommended 3 Feb 2003
By C. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Selected for her unusual gift, Camryn O'Brien looks forward to her first assignment with B.L.I.S.S., an international crime fighting organization. Her propensity for singing childhood songs while under stress does not negate her ability to incapacitate men in unprecedented numbers. Indeed, unwanted help, or blatant interference, can land a man in the hospital in record time. Camryn's first assignment, to protect the world's wealthiest man, thrusts her into a world of subterfuge and danger, not to mention a lot of cool toys.
Accompanied by three geriatric retirees, Camryn finds herself on life-size Monopoly board where players risk fortunes. Bad boy Jace Sentori, a man of secrets and a tattooed self-proclamation of Game Master, adds a romantic element that gives danger a whole new meaning. With hot spots implanted under her skin to control F.I.D.O., romantic interludes pose dangerous consequences. But Camryn cannot imagine all the games Jace has ever played, and he never looses.
The first of a series, FROM BOARDWALK WITH LOVE is a playful romantic romp that will while away a lazy afternoon with delighted giggles, not to mention outright guffaws. With her MaryKay pink Cadillac and robotic cat F.I.D.O, Camryn embarks upon a wonderfully comedic journey, determined to prove her independence and self-reliance. Unfortunately, every time she reaches the point of combustion with sexy Jace, circumstances blow them apart again. With lots of teasing, word play, and spoofing, author Nina Bangs creates an eccentric delight readers will adore. FROM BOARDWALK WITH LOVE comes very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ... on Fun! 12 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
No one knows what BLISS stands for, but a secret agency of female crime fighters works for me. Look out James Bond. Nina Bangs uses her wicked imagination and produces a kicky twist on the secret agent genre. From a robotic cat to her body parts that you touch at your own risk, Camryn is equipped to save the world. Then sexy Jace Sentori gets in the way. The fun begins and, aided by three geriatric agents who still have what it takes, Camryn and Jace discover that nothing is better than Going to Jail. An eccentric [game] fanatic and wacky characters also help make From Boardwalk with Love laugh out funny and sizzling sexy. Don't miss this newest effort from Nina Bangs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish 6 Jun 2003
By J. Mullally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I didn't think it would be possible to be even more fatuous than Austin Powers, but this author succeeds.
I almost cheered when I found a full English sentence. The books read at about the level of "See Spot Run."
As for amusing, if you like slapstick comedy, fine, if not, forget it.
As for sexy, there are 2 love scenes in the whole of the book you have to wait until page 300 for.
A romance is supposed to be a guy and girl falling in love, not continually tearing around all over the place with absurd gadgets and even more absurd dialogue, and eventually deciding they might as well go to bed together to see how it works out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Landing on Boardwalk 8 Jan 2003
By DisneyFan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I know that it's difficult to believe that anything written by an author with the last name of Bangs could be worthy of the nearly 400 pages that it is printed on, but belive it, Nina knows her stuff. With her fourth full-length novel, she is leaning towards less of the shocking smuttiness of her earlier works, but if you like a steamy fantasy, this will fill the bill. Even with wholly unbelievable plots, magical cats, and the perfect man always at the unsuspecting female's fingertips, Nina has a way of drawing you into the world she has created. I have to admit, after not reading romance novels since I was 14, Nina sucked me back in. She has imagination and an excellent style. If you like the other ones, read this one too. If you laugh at those of us that you see reading books like this, pick one up, you'll be surprised what treasures you can find when you lease expect it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Agent 36DD gets her man! 10 April 2003
By Joshua Koppel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love spy spoofs and this was one of the best. This is not a typical romance novel with some spy window dressing. No, the author seems to really understand what makes a good spy tale, and then she spoofs it beautifully.
Agent 36DD is our hero. She has been asigned a very important task for her first field assignment, basically save civilization as we know it. The newbie agent is backed up by a trio of partners (3 agents drawn back into active duty), a special car, and a weapon of ultimate destruction.
Or hero must then travel to an island designed to be a giant Monopoly board so that she can save the owner's life (Owen Sitall).
As the plots are revealed in tantalizing ways, the reader is drawn to the two great questions:
When will she finally hook up with him? and
Who is the bad guy?
This book delivers. The action, plotting and spoofing are handled deftly and delivered in a tantalizing package. A very fun book that makes you wish the other B.L.I.S.S. books were also written by Nina Bangs.
