R E V I E W ➠ Power Surge by Kennedy L. Mitchell




Now what?
Everything has changed, and not for the better. The not-so-perfect life I had as VP is gone, along with the team that’s been by my side each step of my political journey. Every move I make, every breath and thought, now affects millions, and the weight wears me down without Trey as a welcomed distraction.
They tell me war is coming, and I’m the one who has to stop it. But how is the question no one can answer. Past enemies lurk in the shadows while new ones hide in plain sight, stalking, watching, and waiting for the right moment to take me out. I need Trey back. I need them all by my side and ready to fight for me.
Can I undo the mess that my predecessor left in his wake, or will I break under the burden to save the world?
No pressure, right?

Not my first read by the author and I LOVE me some Kenndy books. I also have read the previous 3 books in this series and am very anxious for book #5 the conclusion because this one took me by surprise!

What I want ot say so far is that yes each book is based on the same hero and heroine but you get so much action and the ride along with it…will have you wanting more. This is a political romance, so the only disclaimer I had so far was the romance part that exists but me being a die hard romance lover I always crave a lot…which the author did give me in book 3 I’ll never forget that and absolutely LOVED it…that said I also loved the beginning and in between…this book starts off with a BANG and I wasn’t sure where it was going to go, in which all I never know it’s more a TAKES YOU BY SURPRISE type of books..the good kind of surprise. I don’t want to give out too much because this is a you SHOULD READ FROM BOOK 1 type of read because well you want that build of relationship between the hero and heroine. This one is a little less romance and a lot of action, it has some beautiful romantic moments that will have you swoon right out of your panties! These two are a magnet for one another, when life throws them every curve possible, they not only maneuver it but also always end up at the same path. Just plain beautiful the hero and heroine’s relationship, the events…BE PREPARED!

I am SUPER READY FOR BOOK #5 the conclusion!!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Switch by Kennedy L. Mitchell



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Lies. Deceit. Espionage. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg here in DC.
My boyfriend is fake engaged, I’m pretty sure someone out there is trying to kill me, and now a sexy-as-sin attorney from the Justice Department is investigating me and I have zero clue as to why. Torn between duty and love, I’m not just floundering in my role as VP, I’m drowning.
When the pieces of the president’s plan come to light, I know I have to stop him. Permanently this time. How I’ll get out of this alive, I have no idea, but at least I still have my favorite secret service agent, Trey Benson, by my side—for now.
I’ll do whatever it takes to remove Kyle from office, even if it means sacrificing everything I love. Again.

Power Switch is the third book in the five-book Power Play series and is a continuation of Randi and Trey’s epic love story. The books in this series cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren, then this series is for YOU! 

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites and I also have read Book 1 & 2 out of the 5 series books!

You will get a strong doze of Jessica in this one and I pray that she “accidentally” gets killed off! Anyways, thus far (and since this is book 3 and I hope no one is reading in the middle of a full length 5 book series) we all know that the heroine Randi is the VP of the USA with a President who is a big DICK! Trey the hero is cornered by his parents specifically his mother to do something that he wouldn’t normally agree to but to keep Randi safe he had no choice. His relationship with Jessica who in the beginning really seemed like a ‘woman power’ type of person until Trey’s mother got her claws in her, is a rather preternatural relationship! I didn’t like the “triangle” aspect of it in the beginning, it turned me off only because that is my taste or NOT my taste to be exact. I put a lot of emotion and feeling into reading, and it’s not so much as put but that’s how I read, will a full heart and concentration to the story and characters. Blessing & a Curse!

That also said, it really in this one you can see how hard it really is to keep a relationship when you’re the VP and the other is sworn and paid to protect you. The hurdles they go through are real and dangerous, sweet, romantic, fast, mysterious…it has it all. It’s deep political romance but with lot’s of twists and turns. Randi is complex character that Trey keeps at bay, they really are perfectly perfect together. Aside from the beginning where I wanted Jessica killed off, I really enjoyed the remainder. Now let’s talk about the ending: everything from 65% and on was intense, from the lies, secrets, danger constant danger, Randi holds her ground. Like I said these two are perfect for one another and the ending had me SHOOCKED!!!!!! Just shoocked!

R E V I E W ➠ Yours In Scandal by Lauren Layne



GOODREADS – AMAZON – AUTHOR WEBSITE

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?

RELEASE DATE: March 10, 2020

“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.

R E V I E W ➠ Power Twist by Kennedy L. Mitchell



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

With the campaign over, a new devious challenge awaits.
 
I thought the toughest part was behind us. Stupid me. Now I have to live with the consequences of winning, some that make me regret ever stepping foot in this city. Day one in office I learn of the president’s true plan, one so manipulative I can’t allow it to come to fruition. But with zero allies to call on, I’ll need to work with my enemies to stand a chance at stopping him.
 
At least I have Trey, even if our scorching-hot affair can only happen in secret. Until the best part of my new life makes his own deal with a devil, I’m forced to make a choice. I can’t have it all in this power game they’ve woven, and watching me flounder is just part of their sick fun. Or can I play the game, change the rules, and have everything in the end?
 
Too bad for me, luck has never been on my side. It’s sink or swim here in DC, and I’m the idiot wearing cement shoes to the party.

*Power Twist is the SECOND book in the five-book Power Play series offering more twists, turns and HEAT. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

RELEASE DATE: February 18, 2020

This pull, her smell, her voice–everything about her calls to me.

-Trey

Not my first read by the author and I am lucky enough to have already read Book #1 and have been hanging on this cliff for not too long, love love love anything Kennedy books so, let’s just say that I was stoked to receive Book #2 this early! I would like to say at this junction that KYLE needs to be killed off, pushed, ran over, eaten by sharks…any of those above. Sneaky, slimy little shits!

Randi our heroine keeps her head held high, after all she came this far, but she is not out of the woods yet, the worst has only become, from glares to talks behind back and much more. This book will test our heroine in the best ways possible…all while having to fight her own will and heart for Trey. It’s heart breaking and empowering this whole book, but I was reading fast trying to get to…well I don’t know not an end but somewhere to know what’s going to happen, when and who…the tight leash Randi is being held in all this…is EXPLOSIVE…there is only a woman can take so much! It’s a slow burn of all slow burns…painfully you will feel each with her. But this girl, this woman who has faught her whole life has some fight still left in her…Kyle she is coming for you.

This is a thriller I tell you, political romance never usually kept me interested until this series. The plot, the words, the characters, danger, suspense and romance…it’s a perfect combo. I will be hanging here again on the cliff, waiting for Book #3 because this one almost killed me….the ending will leave you guessing…

GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Gabriel Legend is unlike any other man I’ve ever met.

He came into my life like a hurricane, shattering all my assumptions and preconceived notions.

I wasn’t prepared for him. I wasn’t prepared for any of it.

But life doesn’t wait until you’re ready.
Whatever happens next, I know one thing for certain.

I will never be the same Scarlett I was before I met him.

RELEASE DATE: December 10, 2019

I’ve clawed my way out of the gutter, but I’m a million light years away form your ivory tower. I’m not good enough for you.

Well, definitely NOT my first read by the author and YES I was lucky to have already read Book #1 and couldn’t wait for this!! The little wait was SO WORTH IT!

Just like with Book #1 I COULD NOT PUT THIS DOWN! It picks up right where it was left off, and YES starts with a bang too. Meghan March seriously knows how to suck you right into the story. The chemistry the scenes the actions, suspense, love and the sexy everything! The chemistry between Scarlett and Gabriel is something you can only dream to have. In this book it only gets stronger as the bond with Scarlett and her girlfriends! GOALS! You won’t ever find another connection the way these two are, I can’t express the feeling you get when you get sucked in and live through Meghan’s writing!

I do have to warn you again, aside from the amazing continued story between these FANTASTIC characters, the cliffhanger on this one: YOU WILL NOT BE READY, OR EVER FOR THAT MATTER AND HOLY MOLLY WHY?!

A MUST READ!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Play by Kennedy L. Mitchell



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

There’s no turning back. I can’t go home a failure–again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying.  
Randi Sawyer 
It started with a shady business proposal I should’ve turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I’m not, and bonus, I’m at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC’s seedy political scene the more I realize I can’t trust anyone if I’m going to make it out alive. Until him. Secret Service agent Trey Benson is bitter, jaded, and oh so hot with his mischievous smirk and cocky attitude. He hates me, just like everyone else, but he might just be who I need to survive this mess I’ve landed myself in. 
Trey Benson 
Forced onto her protection detail, I’m certain she’s just another Political Barbie in this city. I should know–I’ve dated most of them. Except she’s not. Funny, foulmouthed and crazy as hell, not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, Randi Sawyer just might be the one person who can make a difference in DC–and in me. Too bad the boss says she’s off-limits, that it’s too risky for her career and mine. Good thing I’ve never been great at sticking to orders. 

Power Play is the first book in the five-book Power Play series. Each book cannot be read as a standalone. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren then this series is for YOU!

RELEASE DATE: January 20, 2020

Stuck with a dangerously hot man nearly around the clock is tonrture in itself.

-Randi

Not my first read by author and I am very honored to have received this ARC very early!! I can’t wait to see more in this series because after this one I AM NOW HOOKED!! Also little about the author from how I perceive her: her books are different, in a REAL sense, so it’s not your typical romance and it’s always real to a point you forget your reading. So, this is a political-real-life-romance, enemy-to-lovers, angsty, suspenseful, mysterious, action packed, funny and sweet at times also. Slow burn for sure, but with some teasing! When hero and heroine meet it’s under not so good circumstances. What’s worse is that Randi was shocked by the man’s size and beautiful eyes, until the harsh words that come out of his mouth. How do you change someone perception of yourself when it’s a lie to yourself too.

Trey Benson is part of Randi’s security detail, and the man is a grumpy one. Sexy, but grumpy! Considering he got himself and his team in the situation they are in in the first place. I think it’s funny that he already made up him mind about Randi, but he has NO IDEA!! Trey and Randi are more intertwined than they know, small world if you will. Beware and that’s saying it light of K Y L E! Oh my gosh, did I want to stab him then suffocate him with his own pillow a few times! *grrrr* This is a VERY REAL LIKE political life, and boy did the author do some good research which ever way!!

Two people whoa re polar opposite, lies, wrongs, deception and real life. It’s when Trey realizes a little who Randi really is, every day it’s something new and he can’t believe his eyes because, not a minute ago she was this polished, clean beautiful and shark woman in a world of powerful men. This is a DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT’S COVER through and through. I really really flipping fell in love with Randi, her past, her upbringings, her push through life…it’s admirable and not believable at times but in here you will understand that, really not everyone is as they seem. But throughout all this, she stays true to HERSELF even if the rest of the world sees her as this perfect Political Barbie!

While these two try and figure out WHO THEY ARE to themselves, while living this life of polar opposite yet so very much alike…it’s a on the edge of the seat, glued to your book type of story. As much as the political world is arrogant, there is a way to navigate, the question is will Randi trust her new found friend Trey to help her with that, and will Randi put himself back out there for someone he essentially had pegged already?!

Prepare for that ending & thereafter…seriously, a fight to the end?

A MUST READ!
