Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Age Group: Adult (18+)
Kate Callahan’s marriage wasn’t good to begin with, but when it comes to a rather abrupt end, she’s understandably shaken up about it. Having to rebuild her life from scratch again isn’t something she was looking forward to. Should she continue her campaign to become mayor, or go back to her job of corporate lawyer? Should she try to go back to the dating scene, or stay single for a while?
When she meets Brad Taylor, a handsome, seductive, and successful and ambitious business owner, her life starts falling back into place. Brad feels an immediate attraction toward her, and the feeling is mutual. But if she wants to give the relationship a fair chance, Kate will have to deal with phantoms of the past.
There are plenty of steamy scenes here, and they’re all quite enjoyable. The writing style was solid from start to end, and the plot, while not entirely original, was definitely very entertaining. Kate was a great character. She’s flawed, goes through up and downs, tries to do the best she can, and I applaud her for that. Brad was…well, hot barely begins to describe it. I enjoyed the steamy romance between the two characters, but also the underlying plot of both of them working together to make their city a better place.
Review by: Forever Book Lover
Kate is shocked when her marriage comes to a sudden end. She has to make a tough choice: go back to her job as corporate lawyer, or proceed with her campaign to become Mayor.
When she meets Brad Taylor, a handsome and successful business owner, her life starts falling into place again. They’re instantly attracted to each other, and passion sizzles off the pages from the moment they meet.
With good writing and characters you can root for, this was an entertaining novel.
Review by: Endazzled Reading
After reading Passion, Power and Privilege, I have to decide it’s one of my favorite contemporary romance novels ever. We have a decent background story here, interesting characters who each have a personality of their own, and are not entirely dependent on each other for their happiness. There’s instant attraction, but not instant love, and the story is well developed and written in clear, concise language.
Kate struggles after her last marriage ended in a divorce. When she meets handsome, successful Brad, her life finally starts to make sense again. What follows next, is two people trying to find their way in life, trying to work out a relationship that is complicated from the start, and trying to find love again.
A story with a good plot, and great writing style, recommended to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance.
Review by Bookaholic Ramblings
Kate’s marriage with Dwanye was frar from ideal, but when she finds herself suddenly single again, she has no idea what to do. Picking up the pieces of a previous life, she wonders whether she should return to her job as a corporate lawyer, or take a risk, and proceed with her campaign to become the Mayor of her city. What she didn’t think would happen, was that she’d fall in love agian.
But then she meets Brad, and he’s everything she’s wanted in a partner. He’s handsome, successful, and inspires her to follow her dreams. He brings out a passion and love Kate thought had long disappeared. But unfortunately the past has a way of catching up with both of them, and if they want a chance at happiness, they’ll have to overcome secrets of the past to find love.
I loved Kate. She wasn’t scared to take on any challenge. She was brave, thoughtful, and intelligent. But when she met Brad, something awoke inside of her that was more than all that. It brought forth a better Kate, a Kate who could change the world, if she wanted to. Brad is the kind of guy you can only dream of in real life. A perfect gentleman, charming, a tad bit possessive, and very, very loving.
The plot was all right, and the more sexy scenes were definitely sexy. But there was tons of romance as well, and the characters really match in all aspects of life (with that, I mean not just the bedroom). My first book by this author, but if she writes any more, I’d love to read them.
