The Fidelity Files by Jessica Brody


How far will you go to find out the truth?

Jennifer Hunter is prepared to go all the way—well, almost. For the past two years, she has been working undercover as a “fidelity inspector,” hired by suspicious wives and girlfriends to test the faithfulness of the men in their lives. As she explains to her clients, “I don’t initiate anything. I only follow his lead.”

Working under the code name “Ashlyn,” Jennifer has exposed hundreds of unfaithful husbands, fianc├ęs and boyfriends. Of course, she never actually sleeps with any of them; she tests for an intention to cheat only. But while Ashlyn may be changing the lives of countless women for the better, Jen’s real life is quickly starting to unravel. Keeping her friends and family from finding out what she really does on all those “business trips” is proving more difficult every day and a string of unfortunate incidents leads her to believe that her secret identity is about to be exposed.

Just when it seems like nothing is going her way, Jen meets a man who makes her think it may be time to retire Ashlyn willingly, for the sake of true love. But before she gives up her double life for good, she decides to take on one last assignment—-a job which will change everything.


I've been dying to read this book for what seems like forever. Since, for one, it has an amazing book trailer, one of the best ever, and for two it has an interesting premise. So, when I got the chance to read it on my past vacation, I was so excited. And as it turns out, I had every right to be excited. Since, The Fidelity Files is one awesome debut book!

In The Fidelity Files you get a glimpse into the complicated world of Jennifer Hunter (code name: Ashlyn). You see, Jennifer is a secret "fidelity inspector", a person who tests the faithfulness of men all around, acting as a "superwoman" for desperate wives and girlfriends. Jen was definitely one of my favorite female protagonists because I loved her for what she did. Since, this issue of cheating sadly hits close to home for me. Plus, she was a girl that any woman or teen girl could identify with because she has issues from her childhood that were never quite resolved and has hard time letting her true self be exposed at times.

Adding to the awesome main character, the plot was also intense and provided for several twists and turns you didn't see coming. Also, I enjoyed how it has a light side too it because of funny secondary characters.

Lastly, Jennifer's writing was pretty good and it seems that it will only get better as time goes on.

Overall, The Fidelity Files is definitely a book filled with awesomeness, I truly look forward to reading Love Under Cover and lucky for me I have an ARC of it.

Grade: A+

  4. Awesome! this one looks really good. I'll check it out :D

  5. I didn't know that Love Under Cover was a sequel! I applied to win it from Free Book Friday thinking it was a stand alone novel :P


  6. This is the first review of this one I've read. I checked this out of the library a while ago. I need to read it before it's due back, especially such you gave it such a high rating.

  7. Lucky you to have an ARC of the sequel. I like this book and want to read it so much. Even though it's not really a YA one, the idea is so brilliant you cannot pass it.

  8. This reminds me a little of a book I want to read, The Naughty List. This one seems like it's for a more mature audience.
