    1. There is no way I could ever be a spy! My heart races at the thought of a sticky situation and I'm sure my mind would be a muddled mess. Yet, I love reading these types of suspenseful books. This one definitely had it all: suspense, action, romance, and mystery. Add to that some foreign languages and it was fantastic! What I'm really wondering is this: Is this author really a spy??? How can she write stories like this! Wow.Talia is a likable character. She's human and no some superhero, yet she [...]

    2. Take sure-handed writing, a great main character with a lot of snark, an awesome plotline, a romance on the rocks, and a possible Russian spy. What do you have? The recipe for a great book, and also an apt description of “I, Spy” by Jordan McCollum.First novels tend to be a little timid. The author isn’t quite sure of themselves yet, they’re still navigating the market, they’re figuring out who they want to be as a literary artist. “I, Spy” started out with a bang and with the conf [...]

    3. Audience: Adult (Clean)Genre: Romantic Spy ThrillerLength: 312 pgsRating: ***** (Loved it!)Review: To be honest, I’ve had my eye on this book for a while and for good reason. It caught my attention right off. The characters. The conflict. The pacing. Then about half-way through I could not put it down. Considering everything that should be happening during our move right now, I spent the afternoon on my rear reading a fantastic book. Ms. McCollum does a fantastic job of making everything seem [...]

    4. I really enjoyed reading this book. The story was very fast-paced, lots of action, with a little romance thrown in. I'm looking forward to more from Jordan. And I'm not just saying this because she's my niece. She's a talented story-teller.

    5. I ran across this on my kindle and was pleasantly surprised to come across this on a couple different websites with great reviews. AND THEY LIVED UP TO THE HYPE!! I LOVED this book!! It had it all!! Action, suspense, spy thriller with a dash O' romance and how cool is it that the main character is A Mormon? It made my whole day (and I read it in a whole day- just look @ my house! Hahaha!!)I would recommend it to all my friends!!

    6. Right away I knew I was going to love this book. Such great characters and exciting plot. I loved Talia instantly. So many clever lines. I smiled and laughed a lot. Jordan wrote this perfectly. Excited to read the next book. Full review coming to Min Reads 10/14/13.

    7. Would you be able to handle being a spy and not being able to tell your boyfriend what you really do for a living? That is Talia Reynolds' life. She's a CIA operative in Ottawa, Canada (I never thought of the U.S. having operatives in Canada) and her boyfriend of one year, Danny thinks she's an attorney. She worries about lying to him but the rules say she can't tell him about her real job unless they're engaged. How many times can you cancel a date with the excuse of a deposition or prepping a [...]

    8. This was a very fun book, even if there were parts where I was worried it would go into sitcom-land—you know, where the boyfriend just happens to drop in on your date with the foreign guy you're gathering information on. Fortunately, McCollum is a much better writer than to do something so amateurish, though I think it was a mistake to leave it as a possibility.It's a strong show for a new(ish) author and I enjoyed it immensely. Indeed, I couldn't put it down, once I crossed about the midway p [...]

    9. Wow, what a page turner! Although Talia Reynolds had been a CIA officer for a while, she has never killed a person before. This changes when Fyodor Timofeyev becomes her next case. As the operation progresses, Talia's love life as well as the life of her boyfriend, Danny, hangs in the balance.I could simply not put I, Spy down once I started reading. The action is nonstop and the nail-biting suspense never lets up. The book is written in such a comfortable, flowing style that it is easy to just [...]

    10. WHAT IT'S ABOUT:Canada is probably the last place you'd expect to find an American spy. But even idyllic Ottawa has its deadly secrets--and so does CIA operative Talia Reynolds. She can climb through ventilation shafts, blend in at the occasional diplomatic function, even scale buildings (small ones). But there's one thing she can't do: tell her aerospace engineer boyfriend Danny about her Top Secret occupation.It worked for a year, keeping Danny in the dark, keeping him away from danger, keepin [...]

    11. Ooh, ooh, I really liked this book! :)This book is told in the first person and it really felt like my best girlfriend was just telling me a fantastic story. It was personal and witty and it just felt real.Talia is tough but she has a big heart. She tries really hard to take care of the people that are important to her. Her job as a CIA operative is dangerous and requires her complete attention but it is also a secret she can't share with her boyfriend which of course, leads to just a few bumps [...]

    12. The author asked me if I would like to review her book and I said: "YES!" I love how real this feels! Talia loves her boyfriend Danny, but has a hard time with commitment (history). Especially when there's so much to do at work and she can't tell him what's going on, because she's CIA. You will sit on the edge of your seat as you find out what is going to happen! Talia makes a big mistake that could affect everyone around her and she has to decide what the truth really is. This is a book with re [...]

    13. Okay, I'll admit it. I'm completely biased about this book. :) I loved, loved, LOVED the TV show Alias, and this story follows in Sydney Bristow's footsteps. Like the Alias TV show, I, Spy features a fantastic, likeable spy heroine who's trying to juggle her personal life with her work life. Talia Reynolds struggles with doing the right thing while under pressure to catch the bad guys.The edge-of-my-seat undercover operations kept me turning pages, and just when I thought the story would go one [...]

    14. Talia Reynolds is a powerhouse, no-nonsense kind of girl. Strong, yet sensitive. Determined, yet compassionate. She is quick and witty and I became quite fond of the thoughts that swirled around in her mind. In a world where so many of us look out only for ourselves, I loved her dedication to her partner - even when he had fumbles that jeopardized her life. This was a fun, adventurous, fast-paced book that had me turning pages. Not a dull moment. Definitely a must read. Can't wait for the rest i [...]

    15. CIA operative, Talia Reynolds, finds herself in a predicament. As an agent working in Canada, she lives a double life. Her boyfriend, Danny, doesn’t know she’s an agent and thinks she’s a lawyer. She constantly has to break dates with him and yet, she can’t quite imagine a different career. Added to the craziness of her life is her partner, Elliot and having to keep him focused on the job at the hand. When she’s assigned a job that involves romancing a Russian aerospace executive, Tali [...]

    16. The spy books I have read I have really liked, so I was happy to accept this book for review. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed reading this, staying up late one night to do so. The author seems to have a quirky set of humor, which comes through in her book.The book kind of meanders along, with the plot slowly thickening until about two-thirds of the way through and then it gets rather intense. I wasn't quite sure what was going to happen and how things were going to end. I was surprised a [...]

    17. 5 STARS I was contacted last week and was offered this book I Spy to read. Told me it was about CIA agent working in Canada and a clean read. One person brought up Alias show it reminded them. So I thought I would sample it and see if it was a book I wanted to read this week for their blog tour. I did not want to put the book down. It grabs you and keeps you wanting more. I did not realize it was published by a Orem company. When she talked about not having to make excuses because she did not dr [...]

    18. I, Spy was fast paced and incredibly exciting! From the very first sentence I was drawn into the book. Talia was an awesome protagonist. She was witty and fun. Her funny little asides throughout the book made me smile. She was really tough, too. She was in some potentially dangerous situations, and she kept her cool. The secondary characters in I, Spy were great. Elliot always seemed to have something funny to say. He was a joker, but very dedicated. Danny and Talia's relationship seemed to be o [...]

    19. 4.5 stars.I saw a few cover reveal posts for I, Spy back in April, but I'll admit that I didn't look further into the book due to the sexy cover. Yes, I know you aren't supposed to judge books by their covers, but with so many novels on my to-read list, I tend to avoid those with covers that don't grab me, or those that imply content that I don't care for. BUT, I was totally wrong about the content of I, Spy, and I'm very grateful the author contacted me about reviewing her book. She thought I m [...]

    20. Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsARCTalia Reynolds is a CIA operative. She is having a hard time right now, because her boyfriend Danny is demanding a lot of her time, but so is her job. She's always thought that loving someone would jeopardize her job, so she didn't really let herself get to that point. However when bad things start to happen with the Russian's she's not so sure she was right any more. This is a wonderful story about a women who has to do some very dangerous things for [...]

    21. I, Spy (Spy another day series-Book number 1)This book was written by character Talia. She lives two separate lives-one where she goes to church and has a boyfriend Danny. The other where she works with Elliott and is a CIA operations officer. Then her two separate lives collide and people start getting hurt and she doesn't know who to trust. This book was fast paced-great adventure! I felt like I was reading a "James Bond" type book and couldn't stop reading it! Good clean reading and definitel [...]

    22. This book is a fun and fast-paced read. The main characters are easy to like and you really get a sense of what it feels like to be a spy and how difficult it is to have a personal life while doing so. Witty and charming, as well as exciting. Lots of edge of your seat action while also having a bit of clean romance. A real page turner! I couldn't put it down, especially at the exciting climax! Lots of fun! Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

    23. This was a fun read. Hard to put down. It kind of combined a Melanie Jacobson-type narrator with a Traci Hunter Abramson-type plot. Probably more for female readers than for guys. Rounding up a bit to 5 stars.

    24. I, Spy is book 1 in the Spy Another Day series. I Can't Wait to read the rest of this series. Though the storyline maybe 'clean' the action and suspense is a fast paced, non stop, gotta keep reading, unpredictable, exceptional read. Jordan McCollum not only tells a great story but her ability to weave in several other languages is gifted. Her story placement in Canada is also well done. CIA 'operations officer' Talia Reynolds is a woman who can hold her own in any given situation. Danny, her lov [...]

    25. I really wanted to love this book but had problems with Talia as a CIA operative. She just didn't do it for me mainly because she didn't live up to what I see a CIA operative as. Other than that if I could put her in a different job even as a cop I would have been more on her side. Other than her this was a really good read. Fast, fun, intriguing and loads of action just what I look for. I loved that it was a clean romance and that they stood firm with their religious beliefs in dress and their [...]

    26. I Spy was a lot of fun. I’ve had a lot of time to read the past two weeks and I’ve been blessed to have great books to choose from. I Spy was very entertaining. I liked the writing and the characters. I could understand what was going on and why people were reacting the way they were. Great YA read or for anyone who just wants to have a fun, quick thriller. 4 ½ Stars. Clean and entertaining. Great YA read or for anyone who likes a fun book.

    27. This is my first Jordan McCollum book and i absolutely loved it. A clean, spy novel it keeps you riveted till the last page. Talia is someone i would like to know much better. She is by the book, but not afraid to stick her neck out , and her running commentary keeps you smiling. I thoroughly recommend this book and look forward to reading more in this series.
