Summary

Island Chaptal - nerdy IT engineer by day, romance novel junkie by night - just walked into her messy New York apartment to find Mr. Right waiting for her. No, wait...Mr. Clean.

A gentleman professional killer with a bad case of OCD and zero tolerance for unsorted laundry, March isn't there to kill her...yet. He wants the diamond her late mother stole for a sinister criminal organization. Island agrees to help him find it, facing the kind of adversaries who dismember first and ask questions later. Good thing she's got March to show her the ropes. And the guns. And the knives.

The buttoned-up Island is soon having a blast racing from Paris to Tokyo following the clues in her mother's will, and for the first time, she's ready to get close to someone. But falling for a hit man may be the very definition of loving dangerously.

Childish

The story really has potential, but Island is so immature, childish and whiny, it really is painful to listen to the story.
Had to stop half way through the book.

Feisty techy heroine, high jinx ensue

I really enjoyed this book. The heroine is smart and feisty and though she has distinct damsel in distress moments, these at least feel like a genuine result of her being thrown into a world she doesn't know, rather than it being "so hot" some guy saves her. The fake quotes at the beginning of each chapter are hysterical and a nice poke in the eye of trashy romances - a genre I hate to love. Amy McFadden does a solid job of bringing the book to life.

Great book, well narrated

I love this series and it is very well narrated - my only gripe is the French, which is not pronounced well at all, - however, that aside, it's awesome :)

Has everything you ever want in a book

I loved this book. Its our of my normal genre but something caught my eye and I am glad it did. Spotless is a fun read with everything you need; laughs, tears, adventure and a small amount of romance.. I think the author and the narrator both did an amazing job with the multiple languages and made the translations clear for the readers.

It is defiantly worth a credit and your time. Now off to read the next one.

Highly Recommended

What a fun start to a new series. These two lovebirds get up to all kinds of shenanigans that caused me to laugh uncontrollably. Loved the chemistry between them and can't wait for the next book.

Fun, suspense and weirdly romantic

Island is living a normal, if not boring, life with her socially awkward ways. Until she is kidnapped. Then she embarks on a frightening and yet intriguing journey in which nothing is as it seems. This story will keep you listening and trying to figure out just what the heck is going on. I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to reading book 2 of the series.

So much fun!

If you are looking for a deep and meaningful read, this isn't the book, but you should have figured that out by the cover and description. If you are looking for a funny romp that pulls at your heartstrings, jump in! I love when I find funny authors who write rom-com that's not so explicit. I'm on book 3 now and hoping that she comes out with another one soon!

Spotless has it all!

What do you get when you combine an OCD "cleaner" with a virgin?
A fun, suspenseful and complex story.
Yes, there are guns involved and some uh... killing and a kidnapping - but the story is so much more!
Amy McFadden does a brilliant narration. Her typical reading is quite precise and I may have even whined about that in a previous review. I take it all back. I'm sorry, Amy. She gave tension, humor, plus FRENCH & JAPANESE - for heaven's sake!
Beautifully done Amy!
Ms. Monk, you have a fan. I can't download the next book quickly enough!

Fun adventure

I read this via KU a few years ago and adored it. Adding Amy McFadden's narration to the mix makes it even better.

Camilla Monk has a totally unique and endearing sense of humor. I couldn't help but embrace the ridiculousness that is Island Chaptal and her captor/protector March. Also, despite this being over-the-top it's also strangely relatable. Entirely from Island's POV - we join her on trying to survive her central but oblivious role in an ongoing mission to recover a diamond her deceased mother hid years ago. March plays the experienced yet OCD ridden assassin. (Think Monk, but with guns.)

Amy McFadden is terrific in this. She provides a full cast of characters from a variety of countries with discernible and consistent voices. Additionally, McFadden also gives each "outtake" from faux romance novels that serve as the intro to every chapter their own unique delivery.

Heads up: This is somewhat a cliffhanger in that there is a complete and enjoyable story here, but there are definitely more adventures to come and the book ends on a bit of a dun, dun, duuunnn...

Excellent performance

Interesting, cool story, slow at points but the narration is excellent and compelling. I'm truly interested to know what happens next so I will be getting book 2!
