Overview

Compared to love, politics is easy

Union organizer Millie Frank's world isn't filled with cocktails and nightclubs…until she's turned into an unwitting minor celebrity. As if being part of a hostage situation wasn't traumatizing enough, now her face is splashed across the news. But Millie's got fresher wounds to nurse—like being shot down by the arrogant bad boy she stupidly hit on.

Parker Beckett will do whatever it takes to close a deal for the senate majority leader, including selling out union labor. Charming and smart on the surface, he's also cynical and uncommitted—an asset on the Hill. But something about Millie has stuck with him and when negotiations bring her to his office, Parker breaks his own rules and asks her out.

Parker can't understand how Millie has retained her idealism in a place like D.C. Millie can't believe what Parker's willing to sacrifice in order to pass a budget. But as they navigate their political differences, what grows between them looks a lot like a relationship…and maybe even a little like love.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. The character's internal views of themselves led to one of the most realistic conflicts I've read in a long time. Also, the backdrop of politics almost made a third character. I will definitely look for this author in the future.

Oh my goodness!!!! I'm in love with this book. If you like romance and you like politics, this is the perfect book for you. And by like politics I mean really like politics. If The West Wing was a show that sort of bored you and was hard to follow, this is probably not the book for you. But it was so the book for me. I really liked how both Millie and Parker had so much going on in there work lives and were far from perfect and happily successful. The disillusionment that comes from several years in the real world that can erase some of you idealism is presented so well. How that affects a person's perception of themselves and spills into their personal relationships is so well done. Millie and Parker both have things to work out and this was really a story about them figuring out whether or not they could work out their individual issues together and make a together work. I admired both of them and liked that all the bumps their relationship hit were realistic and made sense for their characters.  The best thing about this book for me is how smart they both are and the dialogue that results from that (and how much of it was political debate). That this was used as serious flirting by them was just perfect. Despite their instant attraction to each other this is a slow burning romance too, another favorite of mine. I am so happy that there is going to be another book that follows this about two characters introduced here. I already pre-ordered it. Hoping there will be at least one more.
