Being an Aussie I don't know much about American politics but I loved the West Wing TV series and reading about Brady the politician in this book remi..Show More »nded me of that and kept me interested.
Liz is a beautiful, career driven, very smart and opinionated journalism student who stumps Brady with a questions at a press conference.
Brandy is as young hot as hell State Senator, good looking, confident, tall dark, handsome, dominant, who always appears calm and in control - until he meets Liz and this is where their story begins.
Brady seeks Liz out after the press conference and offers her his number to call him. She doesn't but after a second meeting she relents and is swept away by this beautiful man. He sets all the rules about how this is going to play out and Liz agree - which is totally out of character for the rational and conservative girl she normally is.( Seriously I don't know whose brain wouldn't go to mush if Brady propositioned them).
Their secret meetings for hot casual sex turn into a secret summer romance and they both realise they want more from this seemingly impossible relationship. Liz is conflicted so many times and I felt her hurt, pain and joy each step of the way. She wanted more than he could give and was prepared to let him go each time she thought that's what he was going to do. Brady wanted it all and and couldn't let her go despite seeing how much it was hurting Liz. Like I said IMPOSSIBLE!!!
I liked the support characters in Hayden, Victoria , Chris and Clay, but Heather, Elliott and Calleigh not so much. I suspect that Hayden may play a bigger role in the next book and Calleigh is a snake in the grass but who knows.
This book doesn't end on a cliff hanger but nothing is clear or resolved and leaves you with more questions than answers regarding their relationship and where it will go.
I am really looking forward to reading the next book and hope that Liz and Brady get to spend more quality time together, get to know each other better and have more than just a few stolen moments as was the case here.
I loved this book but, if you are looking for warm and fuzzy hearts and flowers read this isn't what you are going to get.
