It's rare I find a contemporary romantic trilogy that doesn't disappoint, well Merry Christmas to me!
I have read books 1 and 2 now and the t..Show More »hird is downloading but I wanted to get this review in before the weekend. The witty banter, the classy writing, the lack of made up drama, the amazing characters, I just can't say enough good things about this series! It doesn't talk down to the reader, it isn't all fluff and happily ever after and everything just magically works out, these books are raw and they feel like they could happen to people you know.
The tagline of this book should be “Even smart women can lose their heads over a man”. I found myself empathizing with this woman, she is brilliant, has the highest academic merit scholarship you can receive, she wants to be a journalist specifically for the political arena and all her planning and all her education couldn’t stop her from falling for a guy…the ultimate WRONG GUY! He’s powerful, he’s attractive, he’s in the spotlight, and he is a sitting Senator…why not just throw a vegetarian and a butcher together, they make about as much sense! She wants to be a hardnosed reporter uncovering scandal in the political arenas, she doesn’t want to BE the scandal!
This story holds on to you from the start, can she accept being a secret, should she even want to accept being someone’s secret? She’s smart, young, attractive…so why oh why can’t she get this guy out of her head!?!?!?!
Great book, I really liked it, even though I wanted to throw my phone out the window at a few spots…but if you ever found yourself wilting under the power of your lovers smile you will understand this book. Sometimes everything you thought you knew gets flipped all around when the guy you have fallen for simply smiles at you.
There isn't really a cliffhanger, no one standing over someone with an axe, but you are left with the "WHAT ....was that it? What happened next? vibe....so be prepared with book 2.
Narrator was awesome! Sexy North Carolina accent for our deep talking leading man didn't hurt either!
I was soooo worried this book would have the second book blues, I just loved the first one so much I prepared for the disappointment...luckily I didn'..Show More »t have to be disappointed because this one was better than the first!
We pick up where book 1 left off..Liz has walked out on Brady...she doesn't want to make him choose between the campaign and her so she chose for him. Now she is trying desperately to get on with her life, shouldn't be too hard, people break up all the time right? Well that is what she tells herself anyway! As she tries desperately to go on living a normal life she thinks of Brady every day, but she made her choice and now she has to live with it and TRY to build another life, a Brady free life...a new man....a new direction. But how do you build a life when your foundation is gone?
I am LOVING this series!!! I was a bit dissapointed that we didn't even see Brady for like 3 hours but he got there eventually...and then was gone again...at that point I was with Liz, I was longing to see Brady too!!! When a book can grab you like this and has you rooting for the characters and hoping for them then you know you are into a good book!
Have a mentioned I love this series? I am going to be so sad when this is over, but the ride has been so worth it!
This series has been so entertaining, I'm sad there aren't more right now. In the first book Liz and Brady are fighting to be together, in the second..Show More » book they are fighting to be apart and in this final installment we see them fighting the world together. *sigh* I'm so sad to see these two go and so happy that the author does plan on releasing two more books from this world, "Struck from the record" and "Broken Record"...just wish they were already here!
I search high and low for series like this. No one is broken, or was abused, no mental scars that make them unlovable. These two just fell in love when the universe didn't think it was a good time to and watching them fight that love and then embrace that love...*sigh*...oh it was wonderful to read! They had their ups and downs but got there HEA in the end and just leaves you feeling like you can go out an conquer the world!
