Billionaire Trent Sherbrooke works hard and plays harder. He’s never once cared what the media or society says about him, until now. Intent on making his way into the United States Senate, Trent hires campaign advisor Marty Phillips, a ruthless force in politics who will stop at nothing to get his candidate elected.
After a chance encounter throws local small business owner Addison Raimono in Trent’s path, Marty believes he’s found Trent’s ticket into Washington.
Ignoring his conscience that insists he leave Addison alone, Trent sets out to win her over. Soon what he assumed would be a relationship to salvage his reputation turns into so much more. But can a relationship that began as a lie ever survive?
I loved the character of Addie!! I loved her independence, her drive to succeed, her honesty and kindness. She leapt off the page, definitely not a one dimensional character. However, I thought the story too short. I found it implausible that a "playboy billionaire" who dated supermodels, would change his whole character so quickly for someone like Addie. I know that there have been examples of this in Warren Beatty but I would prefer a bit more realism and less "rich man-working class girl" Though it is fun to indulge in a bit of trash reading like this, it's too similar to "50 shades" just without the S & M. I would love to read something a bit more gritty, a bit more REAL--THAT would peak my interest. This author is a New York Times bestseller, I would like to see more of that kind if writing --online.
