WHAT'S ONE ITSY, BITSY, LITTLE LIE?
Cassian Anders will be the youngest governor in Illinois history... If he wins.
That's all everyone seems to talk about these days. Jolie Coldwell isn't one of them. As a journalist, her priorities comprise digging up dirt on crooked politicians and local cover-ups. When her latest exposé on a congressman lands her in hot water, her days are reduced to covering the senior center's casino night.
Unexpectedly, news breaks: the on-air investigative segment needs a replacement. This promotion advance could her career.
She needs a breaking story. She needs it now.
The road to office is ruthless compared to the courtroom. Without warning, Cassian Anders' popularity rating falls, threatening his position on the ballot. He will do whatever it means to secure votes. Now, not only is he engaged, but he's getting married to his non-existent fiancée...
He's never relied on luck, but when a convenient but unorthodox wife falls into his lap? He makes her a deal.
He needs a wife. He needs it now.
Will Jolie and Cassian be able to fool the public long enough? Can she handle the public poking around in her past, one she would rather keep under wraps... Above all, can she be a model first lady or are they destined to be a scandal?
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
This story follow Jolie Coldwell and Cassian Anders. Jolie is fighting to get back in the good graces with her job after several controversies stemming from things she reported on. Cassian is running for governor in Chicago but is very much a bachelor. His teams thinks the optics of him being single will ruin his chances to be in office.
Jolie and Cassian enter a marriage of convenience in the hopes of it benefiting both of their careers. The story is a slow burn but there is surprisingly a lot of spice in in this book and you grow to love both MCs. I also loved Helena and Aaron. This was my first read from this author and I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
