Undercover operative Alan Hyatt has a job to do.  Evidently someone is making technological prototypes of scientific information that the government wants to keep secret.  This information is so hush-hush that men have starting dying and it is up to Alan to find the culprit. This assignment leads him to Vancouver and the series production set of actress Jillian Carlyle.  Until Alan finds the bad guy, everyone is suspect Ė even beautiful, quirky red-headed actresses who arouse him like no other.


When Jillian is asked to house a reporter doing a story on the film industry, she doesnít think a thing about it before agreeing. It is only when she meets the reporter that she begins to think the rules she lives by might need to be changed.  Especially her rule of never sleeping with a lover; although, she and Alan arenít resting all that much. 


I know when I pick up a Lucy Monroe novel I am going to be treated to a great story that will keep me entertained but will also sooth my romance-loving soul.  Deal With This is such a book.  The action and suspense started with the first page and ended just as strong.  Truly a fun and entertaining book, Deal With This was also big on the romance.  Alan and Jillian were both leery of relationships, each for their own reasons. I love how their minds changed as the book progressed until they were unable to deny their feelings for each other.  Once those feelings came to the surface, the love was hot enough to scorch even the coldest sheets.


I canít wait to see what Ms. Monroe has in store for readers next.  I am well and truly hooked on The Goddard Project series and will be on pins and needles waiting for the next installment.  A note to readers Ė Deal With This is the second book of this series and I recommend reading book 1, Satisfaction Guaranteed, prior to Deal With This.  The character of Jillian is introduced in book 1 and readers will enjoy meeting Jillianís friends first before revisiting them again in Deal With This
