Publisher's Summary

Secrets and lies have been the foundation of Lucy Washburn's life. We're taught to learn from our past, and she's definitely learned from hers. Now that she knows what not to do and whom not to trust, her life is finally coming together, just as she hoped...until she meets him.

Drake Prescott was that kid; you know the type. Both an athlete and a scholar, he was determined to achieve his goals and dreams, the most important being elected president of the United States. There isn't anything he desires more than to hear "Hail to the Chief" played in his honor. Now, an incumbent US senator seeking reelection and paving his road to the White House, he's living his dreams...until he meets her.

Incumbent is a stand-alone novel intended for listeners over 18.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Senator Drake Prescott is the hot sexy incumbent and when he sets his sights on Lucy Washburn he is completely attracted to her! Lucy has history that could prove detrimental to their future. This makes for an emotional journey of discovery as I listen and I couldn't put it down!. Given the political storyline, launching this book at a time when everones focus is on the political arena is perfect.

    Story
    "Until They Meet"

    I find it very fitting that the summary ends Lucy's description with "Until she meets him" and Drake's description with "Until he meets her." Each of them are on a very separate road before they meet and both of them are trying to stay under the radar in regards to what their life dreams really are.
    Though the chemistry at their first meeting is off the charts (which I love) they're both cautiously weighing the pros and cons of letting go of their well made plans in pursuit of love.
    I liked the maturity and strength of both the characters as well as their love for their friends and families. It was wonderful to read a slightly bittersweet love story without screaming "What were you thinking?" at one of the characters because they did something supremely dumb.
    Romance, heat, the reluctance to fall in love and a secret that could ruin it all. These are all ingredients for a stellar love story.
    Tracy Marks narration only added to it all with her timing and effervescent voice which was perfect for this story.

    Story
    "No Bad Boy Here! 💋"

    Romance novels seem to focus on bad boys as lead characters so I was delighted that the Hero (Drake) in this book was a nice, sweet, sexy and very normal man. The heroine (Lucy) is also quite ordinary yet there are issues with her estranged family. As the story of Lucy and Drake builds, we witness their strong attraction grow into a loving relationship, yet the shadow of Lucy's past influences their future together. It's a well written story of learning from past mistakes and focusing on a future of better choices.

    I appreciate great narration and Tracy Marks did it again with this book. She is always consistently good and one of the few narrators who enhance the enjoyment of audio books. Tracy is one of the rare narrators that you can actually "hear" smile. Such a delight! 😉

    💕 Note: This is definitely an adult romance. The story is engaging, unpredictable, seductive and does have detailed sex scenes and some strong language. 💕

    It was my pleasure to review this book and I'm grateful to the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review because I enjoyed the listen. I recommend this book and I will be getting the next in this series.

    Story
    "A SWEET Romance!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was such a sweet story!!

    Notes worth mentioning for this book:

    Great cover - cute, and eyecatching ;)

    If the title didn't clue you in then the description probably did: this book has elements of politics but no matter which party you support, reading this book won't get your back up.

    DRAKE IS SUCH A GOOD GUY!

    LUCY IS SUCH A GOOD WOMAN!

    I am absolutely blaming my reading tastes of late. I blame my unhealthy diet of Motorcycle Club books and T.M. Frazier's stories I have been scarfing down that have given me a big dose of dark JERK Heroes. (Hmm. JEROES?) Do I enjoy those books? Heck yes, I'm happy and horrified the whole way through. But it has been so long since I've read about a normal guy - one who never harms the heroine, never cheats on her, never verbally abuses her - that I was tickled to listen to Drake's story unfolding. Yay for Nice Guys!! And Lucy? No sniveling, whiny, snipey, weepy, Mary-Sue here. She's normal. She's NICE.
    The romance unfolded so sweet. The book clipped along at a great pace, I thought I knew where it was going but WOW I was wrong!

    I liked the story very much. I am so glad to see this is a series! I can't wait to find out how relationships play out for the other Prescott's in the family - and I hope Mason + G get together!

    Let's talk audio:

    Great sound quality, absolutely no complaints. This was the first time I've heard Tracy Marks and her voice is great. Easy on the ears, reads with inflection, paced well; lovely job!!

    "What?...Boring-no real story here. Don't do it!"
    Any additional comments?


    STORY: Sad, after reading other reviews I wanted to like this but I am sorry to say this:
    Nothing here. immature writing. Boring, simple, predictable, and cliche dialogue. Seriously, I have better banter with my husband (we've been married for two decades...) than in this book.

    I have no idea what other reviewers are talking about. There is nothing here. No story, no excitement, no politics. I forced myself to finish it just to be able to write a fair review. I expect a lot more from my books.
    I guess I have to stop trying new authors and go back to the intelligent authors I know.....You have been warned!

    NARRATION: OK.

    Story: 1 star- bad
    Relationships/Heat: 1 star. Boring, simple, predictable, almost sugary. Some sex scenes.
    Narration: 2 stars, OK

    Overall: 1 star. Not reccomended. Not worth a credit, not worth the sale price, NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. Sorry....

    Story
    "Fun Political Romance!"

    Drake Prescott is the kind of politician I wish we had in the real world!
    What a great character to read about!
    I love political romance stories, and this one is a must listen!
    There aren't many books that I can say I really enjoy all of the characters,
    main and supporting...
    But, these characters were so likable, and made it easy for a reader to
    want to keep going to book 2 Gripped.

    This book had just the right amount of chemistry, sex, and drama. Not too over done!
    The narrator's voice was really good, I highly recommend this one for romance listeners =)

    Story
    "Prescott Series - I'm all in"

    This was a thoroughly entertaining book made better by the narration of Tracy Marks. A good story, enhanced by adult sexual scenes that were not gratuitous. Dialog was good, of course the story is complicated, nothing is perfect or it would be a dull, lifeless tale.
    It was entertainment that I will listen to again and download the next volume.

    Story
    "Hot politican alert!"

    This is my first Joanne Schwehm audiobook and certainly won't be my last!

    This is the story of a senator and a school teacher. They come from two different worlds and when they meet, both of their worlds are changed forever. I loved listening to their story and seeing if their relationship could overcome their secrets

    Tracy Marks is an excellent narrator. She possess a strong and confident voice and handles the two different characters seamlessly.

    This is the first book in a series and I can't wait to hear more about the Prescott clam
