Can you trust the one you love? That’s the question that drives the work of Jennifer Hunter, code name “Ashlyn”, hired by wives and girlfriends who suspect their lovers are less than honest. Hunter is in the “fidelity inspection” business, and she always gets her man. She works hard to keep her secret life secret and is challenged when her own best friend, Sophie, asks for her help in proving a mate to be terrible or true.
Hunter’s MO is to disguise herself to get to these men and try to tempt them into cheating. More times than not she succeeds, although she never sleeps with her prey. But her intriguing life is turned upside down when she herself finds someone she longs to love and trust in the form of Jamie Richards, and she must decide if she can carry out one final assignment, one that will either uplift her or break her heart.
Brody’s The Fidelity Files is a tightly-written story of deception, betrayal and truth that asks the serious question many people in relationships only dare think of: can their mate be trusted? If they had the chance, would they hire someone to tempt their mate into giving them an answer? The characters are whole and well-developed, and the storyline is sexy and entertaining even as it deslves into uncomfortable grounds for many who love, live, and learn to tell about it.
This is Brody’s debut novel and a fantastic one to boot, both daring and fun even as it challenges the reader to boldly go where the heart may not quite wish to go, especially for those who believe that ignorance is bliss.
