A James Bond-meets-Austin Powers spoof about the gadget maker for a crime-fighting organization run by women.

    ARC generously provided by the publisher vie Edelwesis in exchange for an honest reviewRating~ 3.5 starsJane’s whole family has been in the spy business and she is no different. Jane Spyrus is a developer for B.L.I.SS, she makes all the spy gadgets that the agents can use. Her inventions are mostly for women agents.The blurb describes her as shy, I don’t think she was at all shy, she was insecure about herself which I think came across as reservedness. She’s very quirky, highly intelligent if a slightly crazy developer and a strong independent woman.Abel Andretti is an accountant. He came home to Canada for a job interview from UK so he could be closer to his family.I thought he was sweet, protective, caring and understood and appreciated Jane for the woman she was. He was more like a beta hero than alpha one but it suited the book.Jane and Abel along with Jane’s Gran and former field agent Maggie go to save Edie Andretti, Abel’s sister who has been kidnapped by her boss because she was getting suspicious of his behavior.I liked Jane and Abel together. They didn’t have a explosive chemistry but more of sweeter and softer connection which again suited the book. They both have many things in common such as their weird food choices and I liked that both understood each other so well even though they hadn’t known each other very long.With these kind of books, you have keep your mind open a bit since a lot of it is unrealistic like most romantic comedies but if that’s your thing I think you will definitely enjoy this one.Quibbles: I did not understand Jane’s attraction Dirk it made no sense. I would liked if some parts of the book hadn’t been so easy; like fighting with the bad guys and the super spy stuff that Jane did quite efficiently especially since she no field training at all. I also thought they moved really fast with the marriage, they only met a week ago.Overall, it was a cute, quirky and funny story that makes for a good light read. Happy Reading!

    I am a huge fan of Ms. Sands’ Argeneau series. I get my hands on those books as soon as I can, I enjoy them so much. So I thought it would be a no brainer that I would love this book. I am sad to say I was very wrong. This is supposed to be a romantic comedy. It started out that way, sort of. Then it ended up being ridiculous and even gross at times. I didn’t feel anything real between Jane and Abel but then the whole story was just flat so I really didn’t feel anything except bored. And gross. I just can’t over that part… Now The Loving Daylights is the third book in the B.L.I.S.S. series. I have not read either of the first books and I know for sure that I won’t. Will this stop me from reading the Argeneau series? NO! Like I said I enjoy that series so I am hopeful that this book was just a fluke.

    Book provided, unsolicited, by publisher for review purposes. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinion presented herein is my own except as noted.THE LOVING DAYLIGHTS: Lynsay Sands Spoofs BondOriginal post April 1, 2015 http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/201...At times this book felt really silly, with its Bond movie names and female slant on the whole hot guy-spy thing. Other ties, under the nonsense there was a story about the lengths we go to out of loyalty, told with a real sense of humor and, most definitely, tongue in cheek.I enjoyed trying to imagine all the characters as they are presented in their more or less ridiculous tableaux. I am sure there are a good many spy gadgets on the market and Lynsay has the humorous idea to make them look like sex toys and feminine hygiene products.Until I realized the story was intended as a strictly comedic spoof on Bond, I was appalled that Sands would sink to such lows as giving the characters such ridiculous names; homonymic: Jane Spyrus (Spy-r-us) Dirk Ensecksi (Dark and Sexy) and Ira Manetrue (I remain true). They still felt silly and since I have always thought that was a very silly part of the Bond franchise, it really helps to lay out the spoof.While Bond and his pals get up to some sexy Bond hijinks, they are not nearly as funny as all the Bondian events that Sands uses to enhance her satire right down to that waterproof whatever it was that Bond landed in the water with. The story does move slowly in some areas, setting up the house and spy equipment and it takes a while to get to the romance which I found lukewarm. This is one of those times where the sex doesn’t really do anything for the story.This story is light, funny, a little sexy, and I don’t think it is a good as the rest of Sands’ work. Let’s face it it is a bit silly, but is that a bad thing. Sometimes we want a silly book to read as a mood lifter or a distraction. If you need a funny light read, say for a flight or car ride, this might work for you.

    OMG. This is my first thought after reading this book. I so needed this. I had recently been in a book slump and so I needed something to read that would not require a lot of my attention. I was wrong. Sometimes it is good to be wrong. The reason I was wrong is because this book was so much fun to read that I could not stop reading it. Jane, Abel, and Jane's Gram were all super stars in their own right. Take Jane for example. She was brain smart but naïve when it came to being a spy. It is a good thing that her targets were clueless. I loved the gadgets that she created. There is the tracking device that doubles as a real tampon, then there is the mini missile shaped like a vibrator, and I can't forget the shrinking condom. These are just a few of her gadgets. Second there is Abel. He is not only sexy but a little doofy as well. Which in turn related to loveable. Which the romance between Abel and Jane were good and it did not take away from the story line. Lastly there is Jane's Gram. She really was on her "A" game. She brought the comedic relief and helped Jane being a spy. Ok well saying she is a spy is a bit of a stretch. So if you are looking for a book to read for some laughs you have to check this one out.

    The Loving DaylightsThe CharactersJane SpyrusAbel AndrettiThe StoryThe screwball-iest of screwball comedies. There are vibrator rocket launchers, bad guy loving terriers and some fun sexy times. I really liked all of the characters, even the cantankerous Tinkles. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t think Lynsay Sands can write a book that I don’t enjoy. The Random ThoughtsUnfortunately my Scribd app’s tendency to quit working between chapters of the book killed a lot of the joy in my reading. Nothing can take you out of the story like spending 10 minutes trying to figure out how to get it playing again. 3 Stars

    Back when I was a teenager, *mumbles 196 . . . * just a few years ago, there was a couple of movies starring James Coburn – Our Man Flint and In Like Flint. They were deliciously campy spy flicks, obviously capping on the James Bond craze at the time. The best thing they had going for them was James Coburn who even the teenage me thought was terribly hot – for an old guy. The names were outrageous, the story line verged on fantastical, the implied sex almost had this thing rated “R” but they kept it all suggestive. Totally titillating to a teenager. One of the few spoofs out there that I actually liked. The Loving Daylights reminded me of that. Although, the hero wasn’t a genus spy who had a harem of women. Abel Andretti was an accountant. Maybe a hot accountant, but still just an accountant who is in town to visit his sister. She seems to be missing. So the heroine must be the spy. Not exactly. She works for B.L.I.S.S – I don’t think they ever tell us what that acronym is supposed to stand for but really, who cares? But, Jane Spyrus (See what I mean about the names?) is in the D and C department. (That one means Development and Creation.) Jane makes the gadgets. She is a “techno geek.” A rather shy one. Has no time for men or dating. Her latest inventions: “I came up with BTTs—B.L.I.S.S. Tampon Trackers.” Because one of their agents was killed the month before when her clothes and jewelry were removed. “I c-came up with the B.L.I.S.S. Shrink-Wrap Condom.” To prevent rape on assignment. AND “The . . . er . . . B.L.I.S.S. Mini-Missile Launcher is highly nonthreatening in appearance and easily-carried in luggage into foreign countries. Made mostly of polymers, it will not set off airport alarms. Should it be discovered during a hand-search of luggage, it is unlikely to raise concern. In fact, most people would be too embarrassed to look at it closely. Even if they did, however, they will find a functioning vibrator.” You can imagine what affect this presentation had on the monthly meeting. It was entertaining, considering two of the three items were demostrated. You may be wondering, who is the spy? That would be Jane’s gran, Maggie. She is a retired spy, but only because she is 70 years old and there was an assignment that went bad and put her in a wheelchair – forced retirement due to disability. Maggie/Gran is a hoot. Talk about your spunky grandmother! *grin* Jane lives with her and has since her parents – who also worked for B.L.I.S.S – died years before. She attempts to keep Gran out of trouble. Not always an easy task.BTW, this is all in the first sample chapter that you can check it out on Amazon before buying the book. That is what hooked me into wanting to read it, as well as being a Lynsay Sands fan. I was laughing so hard and enjoying it so much I just had to see where it went from here. This appears to be an expanded release of a previously published work and stands alone very well. What a ride it was! The group went from Vancouver, Canada to Sonora, California. All of the wonderfully delightful new inventions of Jane’s were actually used at one time or another, plus a few more. The bad guys were wonderfully clichéd with equally delightful names. The main nemesis was the Ensecksi family. This is pronounce something like “and sexy.” (It does have bearing on the story.) Oh – and look for “Dick Hedde.” The name so fits. Speaking of ride, I need to mention the van they travel in. It has a bunch of neat gadgets like speed boost, police band detector, restraints, and a fold down bed. (Totally needed in any spy story! *grin*) It is soundproof, waterproof, fireproof, and yes, it floats. It can also handle Gran and her wheelchair. I so want one!There is excitement and adventure with some romance for spice much like those old Flint movies, only with even more tongue-in-cheek humor. Although, with all the stumbling around, but still coming out smelling like roses, you might think of Get Smart. Either one, this is a delicious read for some light entertainment. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Did i seriously just read this? And enjoy it...?This book demands you approach it with a sense of humor and the understanding that it is meant to be a fun, silly care free story. I started it without reading the blurb or checking out any reviews (something new i'm trying)and all i knew was that it was meant to be a romantic crime novel. When the government agency the protagonist worked for was called B.L.I.S.S (which btw's nowhere does it say what that stands for KMT),her dick head colleagues name was actually 'Dick Hedde' and the whole premise is that shes a inventor tracking her kidnapped neighbor via tampon with her weapons of choice being vibrators and truth serum perfume. I felt like the author was basically screaming this is the written version of the sappiest, corniest, tongue in cheek type- of - funny romcom you've ever seen. Once i accepted that it became hilarious! the play on words with the names like my favorite Dirk Ensicksy (ie Dark n' sexy),the unbelievable situations the characters got caught in like Abel with his towel and Mr Tibbs or better yet my favorite scene with the 'shrinking condom'Though its very different from the Argeneau series we all know and love, you can still very much recognise the authors unique voice All in all i'd say it was a quick light read that i'd recommend to anyone trying to unwind or to people like me who've grown too appreciate the curious/terrified look of people on the bus when i burst out laughing with a tablet in my hand :P

    When I first started listening to The Loving Daylights, I wasn't sure if I would keep listening It was really unlike anything else that I have read by this author. Once I gave into the silliness of the book, I found I enjoyed it. This book is very silly. I took it as a tongue-in-cheek spy romance novel. There are lots of funny scenes that had me laughing. The shrink wrap condom scene was hilarious! I started to enjoy the character names, such as Ira Maintrue and Dirk Ensecksi. Say those really fast and see what you get. The characters themselves were fun. If you are looking for a really fun read that doesn't take itself seriously, then make sure to check this one out!

    I love the author's vampire romances, but am not into historical these days, which left me with this. Not much of a leaving. A cute, very silly premise with a government inventor forced to go off on a mission to save her very dear neighbor with her hot brother tagging along. But it was too silly even for me, without the connection to the characters that makes her Argeneau series work so well.

    A hilarious romance novel featuring Jane Spyrus, a spy gadget inventor, who's unexpectedly thrown into the field when her friend, Edie, is kidnapped. On the case with Edie's brother and her retired spy grandmother, Maggie, the trio cracks the case and has the reader cracking up the whole way. Lynsay Sands never disappoints!

    This was such fun and I think could have made a great series, but works well as a standalone novel. Think feminist, comedic James Bond and you're on the right track! It has a great pace with fun characters. There's a sassy and believable heroine, a very scary and talented grandmother and a bevy of sexy men drooling over the unsuspecting heroine, whose painfully shy and not aware of her natural charms! The missile launching vibrator and tracking tampons had me spitting up my coke and belly laughing on the train, much to the amusement of my fellow passengers. Well worth a read.

    Eigentlich ist Jane Spyrus nur in der Entwicklungsabteilung von B.L.I.S.S. tätig. Doch als ihre Nachbarin und gute Freundin Edie Adretti entführt wird und kurz darauf deren Bruder Abel auftaucht und seine Schwester nicht auffinden kann, heften sich die beiden an die Fersen der Entführten. Im Gepäck: Gran Maggie, Hund Tinkle, Kater Mr Tibbs und jede Menge als hocherotisches Spielzeug getarnte Geheimwaffen.Meine Meinung:Allen Worten voraus: Eine hochamüsante Lektüre!Anfangs fand ich es noch gewöhnungsbedürftig – manche Informationen über die Charaktere schienen eingeflossen zu sein als es gerade gebraucht wurde, anstatt dass sie von Anfang an bei der Charaktervorstellung auftauchten. Auch gab es Stellen die unnötig waren und die endlos in die Länge gezogen wurden. Die Schreibweise scheint nicht unbedingt die Professionellste zu sein bzw. hat so seine Formulierungsholperer und Kinderbuch-Sprechweisen und fehldene Illusionierungskraft was Umgebungsbeschreibungen angeht.Aber vielleicht trug genau das dazu bei, dass ich es nach einer Weile zu lieben gelernt habe. Mal etwas weniger Strenge in einem Buch. Die Charaktere sind nicht die festesten, aber sie sind amüsant und unterhaltsam und immer für einen Lacher gut. Die Handlung sowieso – sie ist so absurd dass man nur den Kopf schütteln und gleichzeitig schmunzeln muss. Schon die ersten Seiten der Leseprobe werden euch zeigen, was ich damit meine. Die Story ist wie gesagt ein wenig zu ausführlich... ein wenig zu lang und zu gründlich erzählt, aber an sich echt super.Was ich aber gar nicht gut fand waren die "Sexszenen". Die haben da in diesen Jugendbuch-Flair einfach nicht reingepasst und waren auch nichtmal richtig gut... auf die hätte ich gut und gerne verzichten können. Meine Meinung nach wäre das Buch ohne sie sogar besser als es ist. Es gibt auch Frauenbücher ohne viel Sex! Das Buch hier hat genug davon :)Fazit: Leider leichte Schwächen was Schreibweise und Co angeht, ansonsten sehr amüsantes Buch mit absurd witziger Handlung und klasse Charakteren.

    Sexual Content: Subtle/Sensual Language (Profanity/Slang) Content: NoneViolent Content: MinimalHow did I never read this book before? Jane Spyrus is my kind of heroine. She’s spunky, funny and smart as a whip…the fact that she can’t remember to leave the lab to be on time is only one of her quirks that I loved. Her inventions for the crime fighting agency B.L.I.S.S. are off the wall and have very interesting side effects. The knockout lipstick was one of my favorite inventions. One kiss and he’s a goner…literally. Jane is meant to be in the lab and never wants to see any real action on the streets. But when her best friend & neighbor’s life may be in jeopardy, she has to act.She teams up with Abel Andretti, her neighbor’s brother, takes her former spy grandma with them on the road to California to save her friend. Little does she know that she will be trapped with a sexy guy (who is supposed to be her brother) in a town of poorly dressed people. Maybe mind control isn’t as far-fetched as we thought. Abel Andretti is a great guy, but unlikely crime fighting hero. I did admire how he stepped up to the plate to save his sister. Not fully knowing what he was getting into. He may not know what to do with all of the space aged spy stuff, but he’s determined to find and save his sister. I laughed my way through this comical book, but I was drawn to it for more than the humor. The story is solid, characters are so well written, and the intrigue and romance combination was amazing. I couldn’t stop reading. I don’t know if there will ever be another Jane Spyrus novel, but if there is, I’ll be first in line to get one. -- ROBYN

    The Loving Daylights. Romantic comedy...turned out to be more like goofy comedy. It started out good, I got quite a chuckle with a few of Jane's inventions and absolutely love her Gran, Maggie. Abel took a bit to warm up to but none of them had any real depth to them. By the time the final "battle" arrived I was ready to be done with this book. I felt the end did not reward my reading as far as I did to get there, it was quite disappointing. Jane supposedly had 20 years martial arts training and yet we don't really get to see that part of her even though she's the techno geek. I really thought Sands would let her shine in the one thing maybe she thought she'd never be good at. I guess we're not supposed to since this a "romance" but Sands shouldn't have tried to pair romance with a spy organization plot then. I like a good clean ending, I am picky that way but this does not deliver. Speaking of the ending. One day can be quite eventful for this group apparently. I fear for the spy organization that just recruited this bunch for another mission. Seriously, no training what's so ever and their off to a new adventure? And that's not all! Jane and Abel engaged within 3 weeks (give or take) of meeting? That bit annoys me, I won't lie but who the heck says "you got it!" to a marriage proposal? It didn't seem like it fit her character, felt forced like Sands was trying to be original or something.

    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway a short time ago.New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands delivers a "madcap escapade" (Publishers Weekly) in this contemporary romance about a quirky inventor and unexpected love.Shy Jane Spyrus loves gadgets. She can build anything B.L.I.S.S. needs in the international organization's fight against crime--although its agents aren't exactly lining up at her door. Some of them think her inventions are a little too . . . well, innovative. Like her shrink-wrap prophylactic constraints or her spray-on truth serum.Of course, you can't use wacky inventions to fix all your problems; Jane knows that better than anyone. Her neighbor has been kidnapped, driving that point home. She will have to team up with another human being--and Abel Andretti arrives just in time. He will help Jane find her neighbor, stop a villain, and, most of all, he will show Jane how to love the daylights out of something without batteries. I thoroughly enjoy any and everything I've read by Lynsay Sands. This book does not disappoint. It's an utterly delightful, fun, laugh out loud romp with touches of sweetness, romance, and intrigue. The vibrators, condoms, tampons, lipstick and more added to the hilarity and fun. I cannot recommend this book enough. So much win.

    Can I just say WOW! I was very hesitant at first to try reading it... thinking "I'm only into the Argeneau series for the vampires" but damn I was wrong and proud to have been. Really, I'm in it for the way she writes everything. Damn, this was a page turning and... if I wasn't about to drop my book nodding off last night I'd have tried to read the whole thing in a one day span. Instead, it was late evening yesterday until approximately an hour ago. Either way, man was this refreshing.If you love romance this is a good one but if you like an underlying comedic feel with some angst here and there it is the perfect book for you. Damn, let me just say I was laughing so hard from the very first chapter. Truly wish there were more books that would be released to this but it is presently her only Contemporary work. Regardless, if you have read and enjoyed any of her other work give this a read through and you'll find it addicting wishing for more especially the way it ends.

    Lynsay Sands is one of my favourite authors, and I was most pleasantly surprised as this was a different kind of genre that I usually read from Lynsay Sands.This is your spy romance, with lots of funny scenes with Jane and Abel, they first meet at the apartment building where Jane Spyrus and her grandmother Maggie Spyrus live, where Abel Andretti is visiting is sister who lives in the same building and later find that Edie (Abel’s sister) has been kidnapped, she had borrowed one of Jane’s gadgets that looks like tampon but was fact a tracker, and both Jane and Abel go in search of her from Vancouver to Californa, they take wheelchair bound Maggie, Mr Tiddles (the dog) and Mr Tibbs (the cat).I found this story hilarious and and very funny , seeing their journey on the road which brought them all together and I can’t wait to read the next case they are all involved with in the B.L.I.S.S series.

    I'm pretty much a Lynsay Sands fanatic. I've read just about everything that she has written, I love her historicals and her Argeneau vampire series (all 18 of them). When I read the blurb for The Loving Daylights, I was very excited because I realized that this was going to be a completely new Lynsay Sands experience. The Loving Daylights is vastly different from Sands other work, but I'm happy to say it was just as enjoyable. It's pretty obvious from the beginning that Sands is spoofing the typical super secret spy agent story so you have to go into it with some serious suspension of disbelief. Yes it's something that has been done (a la Austin Powers), but I think Sands pulled it off quite well. She managed to combine a real romance story with believable emotional growth, a pretty suspenseful mystery, and laugh out loud humor to create a novel that kept me interested and entertained throughout.

    "The Loving Daylights" by Lynsay Sands - I have read several of Ms. Sands works and this one was certainly a bit different but not any less enjoyable. Throughout I was chuckling and, at times, laughing so hard I had to put the book down (well, my Kindle actually). It certainly isn't a very serious story, although the plot can be considered one - a friend is kidnapped and Jane, our heroine, must save her. However, the path to salvation is one that is filled with comical situations. Abel, our Hero of the story, is beyond words with everything he discovers about Jane and her job. I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop and grow too. Oh, and Gran and Tinkle are real pips too. If you're looking for a really light read that will have you smiling and chuckling throughout, this is the one. Don't miss out! (Received copy for honest review)

    This was a pretty boring book. It revolves around Jane and Abel. Jane is technically a techno geek promoted to a field agent by default since she was already on the scene. She partners up with Abel, Edie's brother. Edie is a witness to a crime and she is kidnapped to make her silent. Together, Jane and Abel infiltrate a gated community to find out more about the Ensecksi's mind control plan that involves hawaiian shirts and jaundiced yellow dresses. It is a pretty silly book but I found my attention straying. It wasn't entertaining enough to grip my attention and I found it boring. The characters were pretty flat. Jane is a nerdy and insecure geek with big boobs and booty to match. Abel is an accountant. They get into a potentially dangerous situation and have to rescue Edie. They fall for each other along the way.

    Yikes. How about I start off with the good stuff? This is evidently the third in a series and I didn't realize it until I came here to do this review. So these books are VERY stand alone. You aren't missing anything by not having read the first two. Also, if you're a fan of Sands' Argeneau series, the pacing and many of the story elements are exactly like those in that series. But. This story is completely ridiculous. I mean, the Argeneau series IS pretty ridiculous itself, but maybe since we're talking about vampires, it's a little easier to accept. I mean, Jane's last name is SPYRUS. REALLY??? Then there's the fact that they're tracking a used tampon with a tracker in it. And THAT'S one of the more believable inventions in this book. Yeah.

    I am a huge Lynsay Sands fan, so when I had the opportunity to review this re-release, I jumped at the chance! I was a little surprised at the craziness of the story. There’s action, adventure, mystery, romance, house pets, a sexy accountant, cantankerous grandma and quirky and sex-deprived weapons developer for a super-secret agency. Take Get Smart and add the hijinks of Scooby Doo and you’ve got a funny story with a completely unorthodox motley crew!THE LOVING DAYLIGHTS. I thought it was light and silly and a little too over the top for my taste. But I think other readers will enjoy this fun-loving story.***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

    The Loving Daylights is a one-two punch of action and hilarity. Only the super talented Lynsay Sands could write a romantic spy novel with such quirky characters and have it work so well. ‘The world was counting on her and Gran to save them. A techno-geek and a half-paralyzed ex-spy. Oh, this was just great.’I will start off by saying that this book may not be for everyone. I personally happen to love screwball comedies where the characters are smart but klutzy, and a little goofy but still lovable. And that’s exactly what Jane and the rest of the characters are like, so this worked for me, keeping me laughing continuously.Read More

    I’ve enjoyed so many of Lynsay Sands novels that I was very excited that they reprinted The Loving Daylights since I missed it the first time around. It’s a little different from her other books but I loved the humor and witty dialogue between characters something that is pretty typical for a novel from Ms. Sands. Jane works in the Development office of B.L.I.S.S. and never saw herself as a field operative. But when her next door neighbor goes missing and the neighbor’s brother, Abel, is on her doorstep she knows she needs to step up. With her grandmother, a misbehaving Yorkie, and an accountant in the car Jane needs to pull out all the stops to track down her friend and uncover the bad guys. Lots of fun, I’m really hoping there’s more from these characters. Great read!
