Book Review - Yours in Scandal by Lauren Layne


A political golden boy and the woman of his dreams take the risk of their lives in a sexy romantic comedy of strange bedfellows and second chances by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne.
Fresh off being named Citizen magazine’s Man of the Year, New York City’s youngest mayor, Robert Davenport, decides it’s time to strategize. Next move: a bid for the governor’s seat. In his way: an incumbent with a flawless reputation. He also has an Achilles’ heel: an estranged wild-child daughter with a past so scandalous it could be Robert’s ticket to victory. And a charm so irresistible it could be Robert’s downfall.
Rebellion is a thing of the past for Adeline Blake. As New York’s premier event planner, she’s all about reform and respectability. Then she’s approached by Robert to organize the party of the season. Curious, considering he’s her father’s most formidable opponent. And alarming, too. Because Addie can’t help but fall for the righteously popular candidate with the movie-star smile.
Now it’s Robert’s choice. Does he pursue a future that holds his legacy? Or the woman who holds his heart?


I love political romances and I love Lauren Layne, so this book was a perfect match for me.  Robert is a bit of a unicorn politician in that he is a good guy who wants to do good things but is still stuck in the middle of the ugly world of politics.  Adeline's character was one of the most developed characters I've read in a while with the layers to her personality.  The romance between the two is everything I'd expect from Lauren Layne, but what really sets this story apart from others is the character development of both Robert and Adeline.  I highly recommend this to anyone who loves romance and great characters.
