Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.
Why can’t real-life politicians be like these two? Sigh…
I was a little worried about signing up to read a book that centers around a political campaign–I mean, how far away is November, and I’m already pretty much campaigned out–but my fears were unfounded. This book is pretty much how I wish campaigns were run…thank goodness for fiction, once again doing its part to make real life more tolerable 😉
I enjoyed Dirty Work–and really hope there will be more where this one came from. (The cover says its “A filthy politics novel,” so I’m cautiously optimistic on that front.) Jude and Reagan were so much fun to root for–whether they were on opposing sides of the campaign, a secret item, or a couple out in the open, I was in favor of every version of them 🙂
At just 4% in, I knew this book was going to be a keeper. All it took was this conversation between Reagan and her bestie/campaign manager, Alexis:
“Lex, being from a family with a history in politics is good and bad. It’s mostly bad against Jude Titan. He’s a war hero, returning home to shake up the establishment. No baggage. Just a chiseled jawline and a huge smile and a Medal of Honor around his neck.”
Lexi gets a dreamy look on her face, and I shove her. “Stop picturing him wearing nothing but the medal.”
“I wasn’t,” she says, her fair cheeks darkening.
“I may have been,” she admits.
Seriously. These are my people. Is there anyone who isn’tpicturing him wearing just the medal now? I didn’t think so.
A decorated former Marine. Plus he’s got tats. And fighting for military vets is a big part of his platform. Basically, he’s my catnip.
I was concerned about how their running for the same office would be resolved–would Reagan have to put aside her ambitions for his?–and to be honest, the way in which that all comes down in the main reason for this being 4 stars instead of the 4 1/2 it was heading toward for most of the book. It was better than I feared, but I would have liked to have seen the outcome be more even between the two.
Still, I really liked Jude, Reagan, and Alexis, and really hope there will be more from these two authors.
Rating: 4 stars / B+
