Publisher's Summary

Girls are a risk college freshman Ainsley Carmichael can't take. Her powerful political family sees her as the Chosen One who will someday be president. Upholding a carefully crafted veneer is second nature until the first day of class when Maya's mysterious gray eyes hold her in thrall.

Ainsley may be out publically regarding her sexual orientation, but she lives under the shadow of the Carmichael's ancient but shrewd matriarch in this contemporary lesbian romance. The girls pair up for a history project, and it soon becomes clear Maya is hiding something when she cuts their first kiss short by pointing out they come from different worlds.

The privileged world of the Carmichael clan stands in stark contrast to Maya's limited means. Ainsley's sexually fluid, quirky, and carefree cousin helps her investigate, only to discover details of Maya's past are sketchy at best as the suspense builds in this work of LGBT fiction.

Will Ainsley's love for the enigmatic girl enable her to break her Carmichael shackles?

Great Read

The Chosen One by T.B. Markinson was a great read. Ainsley has always had high aspirations to be president. Her family has always referred to her as the chosen one sue to this. She meets Maya and although she is already publicly out, they come from different worlds that may prove to be a problem. I loved reading this book.

Loved it!

I loved reading this novel and was happy to see it offered as an audio book. I can always count on T.B. Markinson to write an entertaining story. Narrator, Lori Prince, brings the characters alive with her stellar performance, beautifully complementing the written work. Highly recommended!

Wonderful

This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was Great. I LOVED this book. The political theme worried me in the beginning but, it was well done, it added depth, character, and intrigue to this book. I liked the mixed race element, gives a more real world vibe to the book. The family aspect was great, loved how the family interacted. This dealt with real problems in a real way. I highly recommend this book.

Great Debut Novel

This is my first read by the author and i wasn't disappointed at all. I like the plot of the story. it had great depth for all the characters and developed the story line extremely well. I've read a lot of political novels and i like the direction this one took plus i liked the younger demographic of the characters as well. Lori Prince's narration like always is so above par. She truly is great in voice infliction as well as giving each character a personality that is conveyed through just her voice.
