Grace Santiago is the senate staffer for a lifer senator, Kip Halloway. But she is more than just an employee. Her mom works for the senator and since she was a young girl she’s been a part of the Halloway family and she strongly believes in everything that Halloway stands for. She’s also infatuated with his grandson and thinks that they are meant to be together.
She grew up with him and has leaned on him in the past. He was her first everything. Until she met Ethan Castle in law school and she was tempted to do things that she would normally never consider. Something happens though and it forces her to ask Blaine for help and then drop out of law school, leaving Ethan puzzled and demanding answers he never gets.
Years later, they are once again together and their attraction can’t be denied… or … maybe it can.
I liked this book. I didn’t love it, but it was well written and the characters were likable. Even though at times I found Grace a bit irritating I still thought she was a good character.
This is where I struggle when writing reviews because with this story, I was kind of middle of the road. I didn’t dislike it, but there was nothing to this that really made me feel like I couldn’t read it fast enough and that’s the feeling I’m always looking for when reading a book.
The characters were likable, the story was pretty good and the plot was interesting. I just … wanted more I think. The chemistry was there between the characters, but it was more of a lukewarm than a hot for me.
Give this a read if you’re looking for some smart, witty dialogue and you enjoy political drama. Definitely something light and fun!
