"Scandals are always so amazingly interesting to follow when your standing on the outside looking in, but I reckon when you find yourself front and centre of one, the first thing you would want to do is run, either that you suck it up and face it head on.
Which ever you choose there will always be consequences some good some bad, therefore your plan of action needs to be closely planned.
When congressional investigator Hayden investigates he really goes all out, he is relentless in his pursuit to bring down one of the biggest media moguls , he decides to make the daughter part of the plan to get to the truth.
He does not count on being so fiercely attracted to Lucy, nor does he reckon she is ready to fight any and every battle to stand by her family, but when these two's sexual attraction explodes to the point of no return , who will win and what exactly will be lost forever?
The character of Lucy was terrific , a strong no nonsense heroine , she fights and stands up to even the toughest of situations! Loved that she gave it as good as she got from Mr- I-so-badly-want-you- Hayden. It is not always I find a heroine in these reads that are strong and smart, I have found lately that more and more of those kind are popping up and I love it!
I did not however like her level of honestly towards Hayden, it gave the read too much of a "she 's hiding something bad" feeling and her being the stepdaughter to our target of investigation made it, yes more mysterious, but a little annoying as I was expecting her to be upfront with Hayden once their feelings hit a new level.
The character of Hayden, was a true hero, not because he has a heartbreaking past,but that certainly will let you understand the reasoning behind his actions, but because he had to make adjustments to his life that no man of today wants to simply just make as it is a woman's job! Not going to spoil it for you, will just say that wishing you can do as you please every now and then is not always the answer, partnership is the name of the game.
The backdrop settings were kept in tune with the elements of excitement, scandal and mystery. Just perfect for the entire 'If this gets out we're toast "theme. The romance was hot and passionate, the dialogue flirty, sexy and emotional.
I loved the conflict in this read because of both characters being so strong willed it was exciting to anticipate what these two would get at next.
The author introduced me to a world where scandals are amplified to the point of the entire Nation being effected, and not just our hot and heavy for each other couple. Mystery, intrigue and loads of what now moments for our hero and heroine.
I recommend this read for those looking for a romance scandal with a little twist! Very compelling and enjoyable read.
