I’ve read an enjoyed a number of stories by Lee, but this one didn’t quite grab me and I skipped through the latter half. There was stuff I *really* did like – gender fluidity, non-CIS sexuality and flirting, but the undercover spy thing and the generally light tone of the story didn’t work for me. Maybe it was after investing a lot of time and concentration in the preceding story didn’t really make me predisposed to a story of this type.
