About the book

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?

My Thoughts

I almost forgot I had this book sitting on my Kindle. I’ve been in a reading rut lately and have been re-reading some of my favorite series. As I was scrolling through my library I knew this was the perfect book to get me out of my rut and I was right. It was an amazing book that made me laugh, sigh and wish I had a Robert of my own.

I won’t lie when reading it I was picturing Robert looking a little like Justin Trudeau but Robert’s character made me instantly fall in love with him. Despite being a politician he wasn’t smarmy and wanted to do what was right for the people he served. I loved how he didn’t give in to the pressures that came with his role and I positively swooned watching him with Addie.

I swear I could picture this as a romance movie that would leave me sighing a happy sigh at the end. A definite must read!
