Book Review: Rocky Road by Becky Wade

Book Blurb:

FBI Agent Jude Camden handles every aspect of his job with by-the-book professionalism. There's no reason why his latest assignment—which calls for him to pose as the boyfriend of perfumer Gemma Clare—should be any different.

Except Gemma is different. She's creative, bold, and feisty. And as soon as she meets Jude, she wants to loosen him up, wrinkle his perfect shirts, and test every ounce of his towering self-control.

The FBI has an iron-clad rule against romances between those working together on operations. Jude's never met a rule he didn't respect. But adhering to this one is going to be tough because, as time goes by, he finds Gemma more and more irresistible.

Buckle up! It's going to be a rocky road.

Escape to Maine for this swoon-worthy "fake romance"! Banter, humor, perfume, and a mystery from the past intertwine in this sweet Sons of Scandal love story.



Beautifully written with deep, delightful characters that you wish you could meet.

I have loved every Becky Wade story I have read, and this book is no exception. In Rocky Road, Gemma, a perfumer, is approached by Jude Camden, an FBI agent and lesser-known son of the infamous "Camdens." He asks her to go undercover with him as a cooperating witness and pretend to be his girlfriend so he can make contact with her cousin and catch him in the act of selling their family's trade secrets. Gemma loves her family and the perfume world and is willing to take the risk to protect her family's legacy. Spunky Gemma and rule-following Jude butt heads as they navigate their fake relationship that has some real-life sparks.

Becky Wade does it again! Rocky Road is a charming story full of quirky characters with believable flaws, snappy dialog, and genuine faith struggles I can relate to. I love the family dynamic between Gemma and her family and Jude and his brothers and mom. Another great story from Becky Wade, 100% recommend.
