4.0 out of 5 stars Funny Bond take-off 18 Aug 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
While definitely being in the Romance genre, this series is a take-off of the Bond books, and here we have the absent minded professor type, who designs and tests a variety of gadgets, including the tampon trackers, shrink-wrap condoms (ow!) and vibrator missiles. Seems clear what Jane Spyrus’ (Spies R Us?) mind has been on.
But the tampon tracker is being tested in a most immediate manner when Jane’s neighbour and almost-friend Edie (if Jane had time for friends) goes missing. Cue for one gorgeous brother to show up, and Jane, her retired spy gran and Abel to climb into Jane’s specialised van and zoom off to save the girl.
Realisim flies out the window here, this book is strictly fun. But romance with a comic touch is a Lynsay Sands speciality, and this is a great example. There are plenty of laughs – I particularly enjoyed the prototype demonstration - and some great gadgets. The evil kidnappers are a good threat for Jane, Abel and Gran to go up against. I didn’t always agree with the handling of the romance between Jane and Abel – particularly the sojourn to a B&B which was a bit clumsy as a ‘time out for sex’ moment – but overall I found this book to be a wonderfully wacky comic story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynsay rocks in her first contemporary!!!!! 23 Nov 2002
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lynsay Sands is a super historical romance writer with a light touch that can lead to side-splitting giggles. She is one of the best writers that leaves you feeling good all over when you read her works. Well, this is her first contemporary and it is a fun romp! In the ladies from B*L*I*S*S* series (a series of spoofs by Dorchester with vrarious writers on the James Bond Books), Lynsay gives you a down to earth spy vs spy. In her warm and funny style, she offers one delicious romp! WARNING: if you have a chest cold or broke ribs do not read. If you are in a public place and do not want people looking at you - do no read there!! You will just laugh so hard you might hurt or embarrass yourself!!
Jane Spyrus is into making gizmos for BLISS spy - and wow what gadgets!! Won't spoil the surprise and tell you about them, but lets say you will be howling from page one!! Jane's neighbour borrows something accidentally - a tracker - thinking it is something she needs on a hot date. Jane figures she will get it back from her later, but it comes in very handy when the neighbour's brother turns up looking for his missing sister. Jane, her wheelchair bound ex-spy grandmother and the brother are suddenly in hot pursuit of his sister who stumbled onto a super spy ring ala THRUSH.
Suddenly, Jane is forced into be a spy instead of an inventor and it is once more one of Lynsay's delightfully warm and laugh out loud tales.
I know Lynsay is a little nervous, this being her first contemporary, and afraid her historical fans might not want to read her first contemporary. To me Lynsay Sands on the cover is a guarantee you will have a wonderfully, funny time!!
WISE Writers and Readers Book of the MONTH for February 2003

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I thought it would be. 27 Oct 2004
By Sue Lewendon VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read a couple of Lynsay's books before I picked this one up, (The Deed and Always), both of which were historical romances. I thouroughly enjoyed them and this is what led to me buying this book. I did enjoy this one too but I found it a little too difficult to take on the extreme unreality, as fun as it was intended to be.
Although the story line is very funny, I think it was just a little too far fetched for my liking. The characters were great and some of the scenes were truly hilarious, but I just couldn't dissolve into it as easily as I could the others.
I have only given this book 4 stars as much as I would love to give it the full 5. I have to give my honest opinion and say that I much prefer Lynsay's historical works better.
If however, you have read her other stories and enjoyed them as I have, do give this one a try. If you enjoy it, good on you and you can just write me off as not knowing what I'm talking about!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a romance reader, but loved this 7 Sep 2004
By Neker - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Coming from a home, whose male occupants know all the James Bond movies by heart, I enjoyed a laugh riot with this novel. There was so many tongue in cheek comedy through this entire book I could hardly put it down.

Jane (female James) Spyrus (come on, who are you fooling) is lighthearted, goofy, unaware, and intelligent. The many men in her life are sexy, dangerous, and intriging. With Knockout Lipstick, laser shooting braclets, truth serium perfume, tracking tampons (no I am not making this up--Sands is), and Vibrator mini launchers, nothing will stop her from stopping the bad guys and saving the world.

God, I'm laughing just thinking about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gadgets Galore 21 April 2003
By Joshua Koppel - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the third of the B.L.I.S.S. spy spoofs and the second best (with From Boardwalk With Love being the best). Not as Bond-ish as the first, but way better than the second, this tale centers around Jane, youngest member of the spy-packed Spyrus (Spy-R-Us) family. But Jane is not a field Operative. Instead she works in development, creating the deadly and useful gadgets for the field agents.
But when her best friend disappears, Jane finds herself in the field armed with missile-launching vibrators, shrinking condoms and numerous other innocent-looking items as she and Abel Andretti must take on Dirk Ensecksi and plans to control the world.
This is a fun story with a good plot, interesting characters, gadgets galore, and a pretty good romance. However, unlike the first novel in the series, this one misses the mark on a lot of James Bond stuff. After all, this is supposed to be a parody of the lethal, jet-setting spy. No code numbers here. No casinos, exotic locations, or romantic suspense. But it is definitely a very fun book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Howlathon! 22 April 2003
By J. Marshall - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lynsay Sands rocks with this zanny paraody of the Bond books. I cannot recall when I Have laughed so hard. Her tale leaves an open door for more Jane Spyrus tales and I, for one, will be in line waiting!
Lynsay Sands always makes people laugh, a rare gift, but this one was just so funny from start to finish.
A good way to shake off the post Winter blues!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Female Q 16 Sep 2003
By Celise Downs - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a HUGE James Bond fan (especially if it's Pierce or Sean), and have always loved the gadgets he uses. So when this book came out, I HAD to read it. I liked it so much that I loaned it out to one of my co-workers. Favorite gadgets? The knock out lipstick and the shrink wrap condoms. I also wouldn't mind a a little vile of that truth serum perfume. Boy, would THAT come in handy at times. All in all, I thought it was a great read and laughed by butt off.
