Summary

Senator Meredith Mitchell has been groomed from young adulthood for a future run for president, and as scion of a political dynasty, every public and private move she makes is carefully calculated. But Meredith’s focus on the right causes, the right people, and the right timing evaporates when she meets Stevie Palmer, a dashing public defender with a hard knock past. 

A firebrand like Stevie is the last person she should be associating with, especially when Meredith's political future turns into right now, and her party urges her to enter the presidential race. Attorney Stevie Palmer refuses to be limited by the low expectations of others or by taking the politically safe route. 

Cautious, media-perfect presidential candidate Meredith Mitchell is the last woman she expected to fall for, but Stevie has never hesitated to pursue her passions. When her client reveals a Mitchell family scandal that could derail Meredith's career, everything Meredith and Stevie value hangs in the balance, including Meredith's shot at the presidency and their chance at love.

narrator

The way stevie was read was like a high pitched robot. was hard to take. I should have read the book instead. For a defense attorney she was written as a dumb blonde.

Not detailed enough

It was about as detailed as Cliff Notes. I couldn't get invested in the characters.

Disappointing for a Carsen Taite book **Spoiler**

I been rocking with CT for a long time and I usually love her stuff. It was a decent book but there were just too many things wrong for me. The story had great promise and I was all on board but the characters fizzled out. They had awesome chemistry throughout the entire book, but one sex scene :( And then the anticlimactic ending :( :( I expected more, seemed a little rushed and a cop out really. The narration was decent but I couldn't imagine the both of these highly intelligent, beautiful sounding, fierce acting sounding like somewhat airhead at times. I think the pitch is what through me for a loop. Like I said, decent book, but I wanted more! As a loyal fan, I'll keep on with the keep on!

Good Story, 'Meh' Narrator

This narrator would be better suited for a different type narration all together. I could tell she was trying to differentiate between the voices of the characters, but she had the main character's voice perpetually perky at inappropriate times and it made it hard to buy into the story. Otherwise - decent story
