Book Review - Playing with Trouble (Capital Confessions #2) by Chanel Cleeton

ABOUT THE BOOK


The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…
The daughter of one of the Senate's most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancĂ© cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies. 

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest "Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?

Includes a preview of the next Capital Confessions novel,Falling for Danger

REVIEW


This is a great story if you are willing to suspend some disbelief.  The character development moves a little too quickly and sometimes left me scratching my head wondering why a character made certain decisions when just a few pages earlier they would have never considered them.  However the story itself is strong enough to overcome many of these issues.  It is obvious that these two broken characters are drawn to each other by more than just sexual attraction.  I have not read the first book in this series and am definitely planning to go back and read it now.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
