Seventeen-year-old Reagan Elizabeth Hillis is used to changing identities overnight, lying to every friend she’s ever had, and pushing away anyone who gets too close. Trained in mortal combat and weaponry her entire life, Reagan is expected to follow in her parents’ footsteps and join the ranks of the most powerful top-secret agency in the world, the Black Angels. Falling in love with the boy next door was never part of the plan. Now Reagan must decide: Will she use her incredible talents and lead the dangerous life she was born into, or throw it all away to follow her heart and embrace the normal life she’s always wanted? And does she even have a choice?

My Review

You Don't Know My Name was an enjoyable, and at times intense, spy novel.

Reagan doesn't just have your run of the mill teenager problems, she also has parents that are spies. She is a complex character who is destined to be a spy, but she isn't sure if that is what she wants.

This novel focuses less on the romance and more on the spies, family, and friendship. I didn't mind one bit.

I think you should give You Don't Know My Name a try. You may find it intriguing.


  1. Too many books focus too much on romance and not enough on the characters, who they are, where they are going, how they're going to get there etc. I'm glad You Don't Know My Name focused on creating meaty characters and strong relationship. Great review :)

  2. Oh wow, I really like the sound of this story, especially in that it tones down the romance in favor of focusing on other relationships. The cover had been catching my eye for a while now but after reading this, I think I'm going to give it a try. Great review!

  3. I like that You Don't Know My Names focuses on the main plot rather than romance. I don't really care for spy stories honestly but I'm happy you liked it (:

  4. There is a chance you're eligible for a free $1,000 Amazon Gift Card.
