It all started with a question.…
When Liz Dougherty’s first reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper finds her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference, she has no idea how drastically her life is about to change. Senator Brady Maxwell may look the part with his devastating good looks and impeccable style, but his politics rub Liz the wrong way, and she’s not going to let him off easy.
Liz’s hardball question catches Brady off guard and shows her editor, Hayden Lane, that she’s headed places as journalist. But to Liz’s surprise, she’s also headed for a secret, high-stakes romance with Brady Maxwell that could destroy the careers they each hold dear.
Unsatisfied with sneaking around and realizing things with Hayden might not be strictly platonic, Liz faces a difficult decision: Should she take things with Brady to the next level or call the whole thing off? They soon discover that in love, unlike politics, there’s rarely a clear winner.

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician - a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits - but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.
But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozening up to a reporter. And Liz isn't sure sneaking around is enough for her - especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.
I really enjoyed this story. It was packed with Heat and sneaky sex that kept the excitement up. Natalie Ross is one of my favorite narrators and she bought all the characters to life beautifully. :)
unbelievably realistic or tolerable.
Why they just couldnt be together in public makes absolutely no sense. He can trapes around with other young women but not her? T here is no reason why they cant be together hes not married or dating anyone, the only thing is they have different views sorta .....
Natalie's performance really made it great.
Hayden, well, because!
I enjoyed how she dramatized it a little bit.
There was, but if I say what it was then it would spoil it for readers that have not read this book yet.
This was a good audiobook but I have listen to better ones. But I would recommend it to anyone that enjoy erotica & sexuality books.
Vicky the roommate was hilarious...I loved when she was part of the story line.
I think the narrator was excellent...I loved the southern accent.
Yes, it really did hold my attention. I will listen to the entire series.
As far as meeting with my expectations, it was what I expected, I was hoping for more. I've never liked soap operas, don't need a sequel
I love contemporary romance novels!
Yes I probably wood. The idea that these two people are unable to be together seems so far fetched to me. Having said that I feel the love and the angst between Brady and Liz is powerful. I love how he feels so protective and possessive of her and at the same time aggravated because he is the one driving the relationship. He says what, where and when. I know I sound contradictory but only because I am driven to see Liz stand up for herself and call him out on his stuff.
I don't like her male voices they all sound the same and they sound old to me. She does a fine performance of the females.
I still don't understand why these two cant be together she is single and over the age of consent. She appears to be well educated and from a happily adjusted family. Her fathers a professor and she is very intelligent. Brady was actually surprised to learn of her fathers job and that she was a scholar. So much for that security background check he allegedly did on her. Brady is a single man from a well to do political family but why can't they be "outed". Little far fetched for me. Maybe that will come out in book 2 or 3.
I also disliked that his campaign manager and lawyer run his life. They get to dictate who he gets to date. Brady said he had to get married, why not marry someone you clearly loves.
What a pleasant surprise. And what a wonderful hero and heroine. Yummy Brady. He's so strong and true. Have already downloaded next two books.
Love to both read and listen to books... Happy Reading!!
I had not read the print edition. The audio version was okay. The narrator sounded in her early-mid thirties and she is supposed to be a 20 year old college student. Not sure that made sense. All the male voices except for maybe Justine sounded the same. I looked up the narrator to see how old she was but I really found little to no information on her age, etc. I see that she has done narration for other books, but I would never seek her out like I have other narrators.
I like how K.A. Linde did Brady's POV in the last chapter. I loved that. I really do not like dual POVs, but I love when an author just gives a glimpse of the other character's POV.
Not sure I can answer that.
K.A. Linde is the queen of angst. Her books are my guilty pleasure because half the time I am yelling at the heroine how stupid she is, but I can not stop reading. Sometimes the story frustrated me but I can not wait to see how the story unfolds.
Any chance I got, I did listen to the book. The narration was okay and every time I restarted listening to it, it took me a few minutes to get used to narrator's voice, but it made Christmas wrapping fly since I was into the story. I just bought book 2 and ready to listen to it.
