After finishing rereading the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter a few weeks ago, I got the urge to read something similar or something with a similar theme, like spies, but in romance fiction. Don’t you just feel sometimes that when you are reading a YA book you want something like it but in Adult fiction? It happens to me too often and I always try to find tropes or themes I liked in them in other books. This time the center stage is for spy romance novels to read immediately.
