Book Review - A Political Affair by Mary Whitney

ABOUT THE BOOK


No one expected Stephen McEvoy to fill his father's U.S. Senate seat at such a young age, least of all him. The scion of a revered political dynasty, he's appointed to the Senate after his father's untimely death. Now he's in a tough election battle against an archconservative. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, he dismisses her as another pretty face--until her independent streak catches his attention. She soon finds him far more interesting than his Senator McEvoy persona. They're both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. Their relationship becomes a political gamble in a tight election, and all the while, his opposition lies in wait for him to make a mistake. As Stephen's past catches up with him, he and Anne must fight for their future. Their lives mean more than politics, and campaigns--like love--are either won or lost.

REVIEW


We’ve all seen this story play out in real life.  Good looking political figure and intern meet and have a secret relationship.  This story is so much more than that cliché.  The genuine pull between these two characters is obvious and the connection is electric.  This is not the case of a man in power taking advantage of a subordinate.  This is the story of two people with a strong connection who are trying to figure out how to reconcile their feelings without become the cliché.   The story is fast paced and romantic and I really love Anne and Stephen.  They are both well written characters who are more than a character of the role they have in the story.  As other reviews have said, the end is a little rushed, but overall the story is well done and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance.


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