Jessica Ward pressed up against the wall and wondered how the hell she'd ended up here. Where was a savior when a woman needed one? She held a death grip on the drainpipe, but it wouldn't hold her weight forever. Dear God, was nothing going to go right on this assignment?
"Is that a monkey?"
Shit! She'd been spotted. With another curse at her bad fortune, Jessica slipped another inch down the drainpipe. Her boss's words fluttered through her mind again.
We're counting on you, Jess. Remember, someone in that house is leaking information, and until we can figure out who and why, we need our best agents on the case. The objective is to find out who is selling our secrets and put an end to their dealings by whatever method necessary. We have complete faith in you to complete your special assignment.
"Faith, my ass!" she cursed as she slipped another inch. Not only had she been caught in this predicament, but she needed to find a way to get out of it without having her cover blown.
"Where did that monkey come from? Somebody get my gun."
A gun? Double shit and shenanigans. She'd dropped her weapon into the bushes below. She needed to get her gun back and get out of sight before she ruined the chance of completing her mission with her cover intact. The last thing she needed was a hotshot recruit nailing her with a stunner while she hung from a drainpipe.
Her savior appeared in the form of Chase Montgomery. When she slipped another inch, Jessica held her breath, braced herself, and then launched herself at the unsuspecting man.
"Incoming!" she yelled, but it came out sounding like a garbled shriek as she fell from the side of the mansion. She'd always wanted to know what it would feel like to be in his arms, and it looked as if she was about to find out.
Chase looked up, shock in every feature. Bet he never thought he'd see her throwing herself at him, let alone looking like this. Biting back a hysterical giggle, Jessica aimed for the arms he now held outstretched to catch her.
She landed in his arms and looked up at him, making a kissy face with her lips. He cracked a smile and tried to dodge her mouth as she planted a big wet one on him. Jessica smiled, leapt out of his arms with more agility than humanly possible, and scrambled into the bushes after her gun.
Once she had her weapon safely in her possession, she hightailed it through the bushes and around to an unguarded section of the house. Since she'd already scouted this route, she relaxed her guard enough to picture Chase's face when she�d kissed him. He probably never thought he'd catch a monkey in midair and then be kissed by it. Especially not in the suburbs of Philadelphia.
Jessica was still laughing when she'd slipped into her bedroom, changed back to her human form and tugged her clothes on. Every encounter with Chase left her body humming and her libido in overdrive. Apparently it didn't matter if she was in human form or monkey either, judging by the state of her body's arousal.
His gorgeous blue eyes and thick black hair were a devastating combination. Especially when on a body that was tight, firm and capable of fulfilling many of her erotic fantasies.
This training exercise was a breeze. By the time she was through with the men, her boss would know she could handle being put in charge of operations, and they'd know exactly which of the men needed more training, and which of them would pass with flying colors. Quite a few of them were goofing off and taking the "orgy" seriously. Why did The Boss think he could have a training mission that covered a man who liked to throw orgies and not have the agents get into the full spirit of things?
A knock on the door startled her as she tugged on her boots. She might be staying at the mansion of one of the wealthiest men in Pennsylvania, but she dressed for comfort. A T-shirt, jeans and boots were staple clothing for her, but sometimes, when she looked at Chase, she wished she looked more feminine. Why was he here anyway? He was the best agent she'd seen pass through the Academy. Was he really here as part of the training? Or was he a test for her?

from Steph - 4.5 Hearts:
The Agency: No Monkey’s Business is the first story about a unique secret agency that utilizes the skills of shape shifter agents of all types along with its regular agents for secret missions worldwide. This story is cute and funny as well as hot and sexy. I enjoyed the lively, outrageous character of Jessica. She will stop at nothing to get the job done including using sex to get what she wants.

I think I forgot to post my reviews. I don't see them here.
Amanda from Romance Junkies gave NMB 5 Blue Ribbons
THE AGENCY: NO MONKEY'S BUSINESS is a truly fun romp through mistrust and passion. Jess and Chase are smokin' hot! Their passion is almost palpable in the bedroom scenes. Although Jess is just using Chase to get information, I could sense more behind her actions. Even though there is a lot of amazing sex in this story, there's also a very engaging storyline. ........I would suggest to readers that if you're going to read this story, you be prepared to continue the story with Ms. Hasker's following books as this is a series and there is definitely more to come in the lives of Chase and Jess.

The Agency: No Monkey's Business is a delightfully well written fantasy. The quick-witted humor and intense bedroom scenes give the reader just enough of a teaser to please the pallet. Michelle did a wonderful job of balancing the story. Chase and Jessica are both strong characters who not only know what they want, but aren't afraid to go after it with guns blazing to get it. They take no prisoners from the first line to the last. I thoroughly enjoyed The Agency: No Monkey's Business, the sparks are still flying and I'm ready for the next book in the series.

I really enjoyed the scene that involved the voyeurism, especially when one of them realizes the cameras are rolling. Copies anyone?
