Publisher's Summary

For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger….

The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde's Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

    "10 stars!!!!!"

    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'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!

    "Great 2nd installment!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of On the Record to be better than the print version?

    Yes, definitely!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    In this book, Brady! Love hearing the dialogue in his head.


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Ross – was your favorite?

    Liz


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love is political.


    Any additional comments?

    I typical don't read a series unless at least 3 books are already released. Not a fan of cliff hangers, but am thankful I don't have to wait a year for the next one.

    "I am so mad I could not stop listening"

    This is a book you hate but can not put down. How come? First time it had ever happened to me. Seems like a freaking soap opera. You hate the heroine, feel sorry for her, love her all at once.
    She is now deep in it w/Hayden, and he is sweet but at the same time stupid, brilliant, competent and too good for his own good (could man up a bit to be less annoying).
    The congressman is strong, hard but totally clear w/ what he wants and hot. Totally different from the undecided Liz. He acts on his feelings and wins Liz back when part of the truth is written by Callie and Hayden. A total mess, soap opera mess but you just get caught...
    Well hell, just go for it. I will start the last book now...

    "Amazing Narrator Voice"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Brady is my favorite character but he just so Brady!


    What does Natalie Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Natalie Ross has the best narrator voice! She not only nailed the female voice but she does great male voices as well!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The beginning was a bit slow with Hayden being so perfect but you knew the shoe was going to drop you just didn't know when!

    "Another Great Book in a fantastic series"

    Completely on the record, this second book in this series BLEW. ME. AWAY! It was just so... so... everything. Now I'll admit, the first book, Off the Record, left me a little bit unsatisfied. I felt like it was missing something, I wasn't as emotionally invested in the story line initially as I wanted to be. Well, this book, On the Record, was a game changer.

    I really loved Brady Maxwell in the first book. He was, honestly, what kept me engaged in a book that otherwise left me disconnected. So color me surprised when this sequel, a story where Brady is virtually absent in much of it, completely consumed me from the very first page. I don't know what happened, I can't pinpoint what exactly changed, but this book was just glue. I could not pull myself away.

    I feel compelled to note that the writing of K.A. Linde grows with each book she publishes. This story, in my opinion, reflects her strongest writing yet. I'm not typically a fan of third person narrative. In fact, I avoid it at all costs usually. But this author does it right, does it in such a way that I don't notice or care that it's not written in first person. I never felt like I was left wanting for anything, I felt it all, heard it all, saw it all. I was completely in it. The writing felt really clean, perfectly polished. I savored ever single word.

    The pacing and the timing in this book was spot on. The development of the relationship between Liz and Hayden was exactly what I needed it to be to believe in it. And I did! I was scared. This relationship between the two built on such a foundation of goodness, of honesty, of everything that was right, precisely what Liz needed after her heartbreaking departure from Brady. So of course I was afraid of how my own attachment to Hayden would play out in the grand scheme of things. I could not have been more surprised by everything that unfolds in this relationship. I want to scream and laugh and cry over how perfectly imperfect the course of events unfolded... but I can't. Listen to it, so we can rant together!!!

    The reemergence of Brady... the perfectly angst-ridden scenes where the author thrusts Liz and Brady back into each other's lives, if only for a moment. I wanted to jump for joy and curl up in a ball and cry. Every word... every miniscule touch, ever heated glance... it. was. just. delicious. Deliciously hot, deliciously devastating... all the things K.A. Linde delivers, but in such a new, refreshing way. The things they say to each other... they say EVERYTHING I always hoped I'd hear, the good and the bad. I could just eat this book up.

    The plot turns in this book NEVER STOP. But the timing, it's all just so perfect. It's never drama for the sake of drama, angst for the sake of angst. It's all completely crucial to the story line, paced perfectly, never over the top, never too subtle. My use of "perfect" is redundant, but I don't care. Everything about this story, every single word is exactly where it should be to form this unforgettable, unputdownable, sexy, angsty romance.

    I felt everything I hoped I'd feel reading this book and so much more. The details and the nuances of this story... I could talk about it all for days. I probably will. But to avoid spoilers, I'm just going to say this... get on board and enjoy this ride. Don't wait for the next installment before you take the plunge. The queen of angst outdid herself with On the Record. I want to run around carrying her on my shoulders because she totally freaking nailed it!

    Natalie Ross is one of my favourite narrators and she was fantastic in the delivery of the story.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Great narration, good story but felt like author kept re-capping the story to often in all 3 books.


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    I'm a big fan of Natalie Ross, I love her voices and the way she reads. I picked these books simply because she was the narrator.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The story was great.


    Any additional comments?

    I hate when they keep re-telling the story so often, it's like they are just trying to add pages to the book or they think the reader isn't smart enough to remember what was just read.

    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book as much or more than the first. I really enjoy a book that actually gets my blood pressure rising, this book has it all, a leading male you love and the other you love to hate! I can't wait for the final book in this trilogy I am sure will have me listening over and over like the first two. If you like a book with steamy sex, twists and turns and characters you want to punch in the face then this is for you!

    Story
    "A Little Better Than the First Book"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The overall story was often tiresome, and it felt like plot points dragged on for most of this book. Consistent with the first installment of this series, the main characters weren't very appealing at times and likability for them was frequently fleeting. Unease, apprehension, and dislike seemed to be what the female protagonist felt for almost the whole book. There were definitely moments I thought things were going to get much worse, and then didn't, but that's not the same as thinking things would get better either. This book ended much more satisfactorily than the last one, so that was more fulfilling as a listener. These first two books of this series really seemed like one long one, and if both were trimmed of the unnecessarily elements, the combination book may have been better.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She was good enough to tell the males and females apart, but definitely not an outstanding performance where each character had her/his own nuanced voice. I don't think she's as skilled at Northeastern US accents as others.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book for people who were fans of the first installment of this series, people needing more closure after the first book, or for people needing an extremely easy listen about a romance between two ambivalent people who have some steamy rendezvous. This is great for people who want something they don't really need to pay close attention to in order to pass the time. Maybe worth it if you get it with a deal.

    Love the narrator! The characters and accent are well done.
    This is a trilogy I can't get enough of. The love story is nicely developed. This trilogy has me losing sleep trying to find out what will happen.
    I was unfamiliar with this author. I will be looking for more books!

    "Great listen"

    I am so glad I got to find these books. I waited to hear all three books before I wrote yhis review because I wanted to have an overall idea of the storyline.

    I like romances. I am a true believer and a huge fan of these books and I have quite a big selection in my library and let me tell you this serie surprised me.

    At long last a different topic to base a romance on rather than the usual rich guy. This one is based on a political career and a collage student studying to be a political reporter... How refreshing !!!!!

    It had its twists, the hot scenes and drama!!!

    I had a little bit of reserve on the narrator but finally I got used to it and I was captivated.

    I highly recommend it if you are in doubt if you should buy this or not!
