Geek girl Lexi Carmichael has tackled her share of formidable tasks, but nothing quite as daunting as serving as maid of honor at her best friend’s weddingThoughts on No Regrets: No lie, Lexi's straightforward approach to anything she doesn't understand makes me laugh. In a relationship she doesn't want to mess us? Read a book about it and develop a bullet-pointed action plan to keep her honey happy! Need to give a maid of honor speech at her best friend's wedding? Research optimal length and how to keep your audience engaged!
When I agreed to stand by my best friend, Basia, on her big day, I had no idea what I was in for. Bouquets and unflattering evening wear I can handle. But between disgruntled dates, a beach venue and suspicious packages, what else can go wrong? Oh, right—my parents don’t know I’ve moved in with Slash. Oops?
Thankfully, I’ve got everything semi under control, at least as far as Basia and Xavier know. They can leave for their honeymoon happy, knowing Elvis, Slash and I will keep things safe at home.
Meanwhile, Elvis and Xavier’s boss at ComQuest has asked X-Corp—well, me—to take a quick trip to retrieve a sensitive company package from the British Virgin Islands. No hacking involved. Just show up, accept the package and bring it home safely. A cushy assignment, and a safe one. Right?
Wrong. Things start to unravel the minute I set foot on the boat to the island. Before I know it, I’m up to my neck in thugs, sand and trouble. I’m going to have to work fast to stop the bad guys before the sun sets for good on this unexpected beach vacation…
Seriously, Lexi makes me smile. Especially when she's getting into the WEIRDEST situations a person can get into. You know, like having to wrestle a crocodile. Or running around like a madwoman so her BFF doesn't realize she's on a covert mission that nobody's supposed to know about.
GOOD TIMES, LEXI! GOOD TIMES!
Along with the crazy shenanigans, Lexi also gets to spend some quality time with her man. The nature of their jobs means they also have more than the regular relationship stuff to figure out. Sometimes national security and non-disclosure agreements means they're required to keep things from one another. Lexi, naturally, tackles this head-on and...well, I like that about her.
As with all Lexi's adventures (or dangerous mishaps, depending on how you want to look at them), this one was a hoot. What will Lexi's future hold? Probably more entries into her "little black cloud" spreadsheet.
