Amanda and Will are back! This time, they're heading to New York City the day after Christmas. The mission: stop an assassination plot against the UN Secretary General. Aunt Christie and her partner Nic, are back as well, and playing the role of the parents on the undercover operation.

As for Amanda and Will, they're still adjusting to the boyfriend-girlfriend thing, but while in the Big Apple, they are pretending to be brother and sister. Oh, and don't forget Grandma. She's on the team as well. Can Will and Amanda convince the New York teens that they're twins? Can they track down the bad guys before the ball drops in Times Square? Because if they fail, lives will be lost and the UN and the US may never be the same.
My rating: ★★★★☆

This book was a lot of fun! I am so glad I found Juli Alexander because she is just awesome!

So, Undercover with the Hottie takes place a couple months after Investigating the Hottie during winter vacation. Amanda meets up with her aunt Christie in New York to stop an assassination attempt on a very important... um, guy. Heh, I don't actually remember who he is, but I do know that he is very important in The Politics and stuff ;) lol. Anyway, on this Super Secret Mission, things actually get funny because Amanda and Will must pose as SIBLINGS! Ha! This is the first time they've seen each other since Amanda went to Will's school, and now this? Yeah, it sucked, but boy were things amusing! Lol. Speaking of Amanda and Will, they are just so sweet! Will is just one of those guy you cant help but to love, and Amanda is very sassy and easy to relate to.

And then there's Christie and Nic... I loved them! Christie is just as quirky and fun as she was in the last book! Nic was great, too! As Amanda said in the book, "Nic's protective side was endearing." YES! This! I love how protective he is of the girls. He and Christie need to get together, like, now! Lol. Speaking of, I really loved their bantering and them denying their feelings for each other, it's cute, really :)

One thing I really liked about this book was that it was so fast paced. Right from the start we are hooked with Amanda's great narrative! The voice of the book was just great, keeping me hooked all the way till the end. I really love being inside Amanda's head. However, I know I said I liked that it was fast paced, but toward the end, the Big Big Fight, well, it was maybe a little too fast! Too fast and too easy. It almost felt anti-climatic, really. But besides that this book was phenomenal!

Undercover with the Hottie was a very fun, light read with more than enough action, lots of yummy romance, and humor that will probably make you laugh out loud and earn you weird looks from loved ones... It's totally worth it!
