A political golden boy and the woman of his dreams take the risk of their lives in a sexy romantic comedy of strange bedfellows and second chances by New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne.
Fresh off being named Citizen magazine’s Man of the Year, New York City’s youngest mayor, Robert Davenport, decides it’s time to strategize. Next move: a bid for the governor’s seat. In his way: an incumbent with a flawless reputation. He also has an Achilles’ heel: an estranged wild-child daughter with a past so scandalous it could be Robert’s ticket to victory. And a charm so irresistible it could be Robert’s downfall.
Rebellion is a thing of the past for Adeline Blake. As New York’s premier event planner, she’s all about reform and respectability. Then she’s approached by Robert to organize the party of the season. Curious, considering he’s her father’s most formidable opponent. And alarming, too. Because Addie can’t help but fall for the righteously popular candidate with the movie-star smile.
Now it’s Robert’s choice. Does he pursue a future that holds his legacy? Or the woman who holds his heart?

“We’ve gone and done it now,” she said with a laugh, when they finally pulled back for air, flashbulbs going off all around them. “They’ll be talking about us forever.”
“Good,” he said, pulling her in once more. “Because that’s exactly how long I’ll love you.”
Not my firs read by the author, and I have read plenty of political romance and this one unfortunately was not my style of story.
Robert the hero is New York’s mayor and an outstanding citizen. While our heroine Adeline is a event planner in NY with a past of a little bit of wild and crazy. Separately I was 50/50 on both characters, on their own I could make out of something but together, I just couldn’t put my finger on it, they HAD chemistry but just wasn’t a wild factor there. It could also be because this is a very slow-burn romance therefore I really didn’t have much to go off of. Political romances to me have to have a balance of both and in this one TO ME it was more on the political actual aspect and therefore turned me off from the get go. There were parts that felt very slow until it picked back up. I was kind of hoping it being first book of a new series with the blurb that caught my eye, I would enjoy it more…I guess I was expecting more romance. It was a good story, amusing, entertaining and fun at times.
That said, even though this was not my style or type of read doesn’t mean someone insn’t going to enjoy it.
