Overview

Now a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling series!

"Katy Regnery is a fresh new voice. I eagerly await every Katy book and I tell everyone I know to read them!" --Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author

Campaigning for Christopher is the fourth of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the lookout for love.

(Eeek. Oops. Except...no, they're not. Brooks has his Skye, Pres and Elise are happily married, and Cam and Meggie are scorching the earth at the Five Sisters. Hmm. That only leaves...)

Christopher Winslow, the youngest of the four Winslow brothers, was born with a silver spoon in his privileged mouth, which has made it difficult for him to establish his credibility in the fast-approaching congressional race. Working against the clock to assure Pennsylvania voters that he is forthright, trustworthy and able has been an exhausting challenge, but Christopher's chances at beating the incumbant look good.

Julianne Crow, a plus-size model struggling to make ends meet, jumps at the chance to make a little extra cash on the side. What does she have to do? Slip something into Christopher Winslow's drink and take some very naughty pictures with him.

But Christopher is nothing like Julianne expected, and when her actions sabotage his hard-earned campaign only a month before the election, her guilt is overwhelming. She offers Christopher her help in an effort to repair the damage she's caused, but can anything change the fact that he sees her as an opportunist and a mercenary? When she starts campaigning for Christopher, he may find out there's more to her than meets the eye.

Return to the world created in the English Brothers books with this fresh foursome of scorching hot Winslow Brothers!

I've come to expect the books in this series to be romantic (of course), but also thoughtful, well-researched, and beautifully written. Once again, I wasn't left disappointed, and continue to marvel at Ms. Regnery's ability to keep the stories fresh and compelling. There are details in this particular book where it is evident that the author has done her homework with Washington and politics, Haverford and old money, high society fundraising, and American Indian society struggles. The well thought out details give us a rich and well-developed story...an amazing feat for a book that's less than 200 pages. Julianne's naivete misguides her in the beginning of the book, but she has a quiet strength despite her innocence and non-existent exposure to the world. As a couple, Julianne and Christopher were a beloved set of characters for me. Both had ideals and principles that shaped their beliefs, and ultimately brought them together. Julianne was trying to redeem herself, and Christopher was fighting his attraction to Julianne by being cold and unforgiving. The angst and chemistry between these two characters was off-the-charts hot, and kept me up late turning the pages! All of the books in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but I highly recommend the entire Blueberry Lane series. They are the perfect romance reads to sigh and swoon over, and it is damn near impossible to choose a favorite! You've done it again Katy Regnery!!!

4.5 Stars This is the story of Christopher Winslow and Julianne Crow. Their journey is a rough one. She starts out trying to ruin his career, quickly realizes her mistake and tries to make amends. To a politician, his reputation is everything and he has every right to be furious with her. Can you be furious and attracted to someone at the same time? I love all of the Winslow Brothers! Christopher had an extremely stressful time with his feelings for Julianne. I love how strong she is. Her strong sense of right and wrong is impressive and her need to make amends for her wrongs was pretty amazing. She may have done a terrible thing to Christopher but she certainly paid for it many times over. It takes a strong person to stand there and take the verbal punishment he doled out. I can't wait to see what this fantastic author comes up with next. Received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed is my own.

Campaigning for Christopher by Katy Regnery, is another win for me. Katy does it again...I was glued from beginning to end of book. She is one of the best authors I have ever read. The characters are so well written you feel like they are part of your family or friends. I absolutely loved Christopher and Julianne they had such great chemistry and completely opposite of each other, so they were fun to watch. Through the book I would be mad or smiling. I highly recommend this book, you do not want to miss this one. I was given an ARC of this book by publishers, for my honest review.

Favorite Quotes: “There was a visceral connection between them, forged in betrayal and hate, and – despicable though it was – it belonged only to them. There was a heat to hate, and intimacy to it that made her heart race, a passion to it that attracted her like a doe to a salt lick.” “I can’t think about anything but you. I dream about you. I have imaginary conversations with you. I go to YouTube and replay that press conference kiss over and over again to torture myself because I can’t get enough of seeing you in my arms, melting into me.” “She didn’t realize it took only a few perfect words for a heart to grow wings and soar, but hers did… In three short sentences he’d given her the greatest compliment of her life, and she took a moment to bask in his words and feel them from the top of her head to the tips of her toes… before reality set in.” “She’d been raised in a place of want. Of just enough and no more. She’d never known what it felt like to wildly fantasize about something you really wanted and then to actually receive it. But if this was it, it felt like being launched up into the night sky and floating, soaring, free-falling back to earth, all the while knowing you’d land somewhere soft.” “I knew I loved you because I was willing to get hurt… And I knew because the minutes I spent with you made all the other minutes feel empty.” My Review: Katy Regnery is my Go-To author when I am in need a pick me up or something sweet. She has never failed to give me that highly desired HEA. Her writing is so smooth and has such a nice flow that it is essentially effortless to read. Not that her stories are all sunshine and rainbows for the characters, but the observations are always insightful and the endings are always satisfying.

5 Stars for Campaigning for Christopher! 5 Words for Campaigning for Christopher – mistakes, redemption, forgiveness, destiny, love Campaigning for Christopher is another amazing story from author Katy Regnery! I love that this writer takes chances with creating unique stories and diverse characters. Julianne Crow is a young Indian American woman who recently moved to Philadelphia to become a fashion model. Leaving her home in South Dakota was a tough choice but Julianne knew she had to take a chance on the big city for a bright future. As an Indian American she’s witnessed the discrimination towards her people and herself. So when a mysterious man approaches her to ruin a racist political candidate Julianne jumps at the chance. And the plan works well. The candidate’s name is linked to a scandal and his approval ratings drop. But unbeknownst to Julianne that candidate is Christopher Winslow, not a racist but a strong candidate for Congress whose platform includes human rights, especially the rights of Indian Americans and women. Realizing she made a huge mistake Julianne vows to make a mends, even if Christopher is struggling with his feelings for her. He’s angry and hurt but he can’t help but be attracted to Julianne. Left with no choice but to work together, Christopher and Julianne pretend to be a couple which is proving harder to do. As they get to know each other Julianne can’t stop from falling for him, but even though Christopher he is attracted to her he can’t trust her. Will their shaky beginning ruin their chances of love? You have to read this to find out!! I loved everything about this book! I thought the story stands out from the other romance books because this wasn’t a love at first sight story. This was a lust at first sight that turns into a betrayal. And Julianne is determined to correct her mistake. She made the mistake of using her own experience of racism to judge Christopher. But she works so hard to make things right and I couldn’t help but love her. Julianne is a likeable character that owns up to her mistakes instead of causing blame on others. But Christopher treats Julianne horribly and it took me a while to like him. But as strange as it may seem I actually enjoyed this conflict I had with Christopher. It is a nice change to have a character that you love to hate and still see glimpses of the goodness in him. You can’t blame Christopher for not trusting Julianne. This is a complex love story that I couldn’t get enough of and I was so sad to see it end. This is the final book of The Winslow Brothers and I hate to say good bye. But since this is part of the Blueberry Lane series I know we’ll see this family again. Campaigning for Christopher is perfect for romance fans. It has the perfect amount of drama and romance to satisfy all readers. This is written as a standalone. You will fall in love with the writing of Katy Regnery and should start with Breaking Up With Barrett, the first book of The Blueberry Lane series.

I was given an ARC of this book in an exchange for my honest opinion of Christopher and Julianne's story. Let me first say that I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I could not put this book down until I finished with it!! I have read and loved every book that Katy Regnery has written and this is no exception!!! It starts with Julianne working as a waitress at Jessica's wedding. In walks Christopher Winslow and he notices Julianne from across the room and its lust at first sight for him. Little does he know that Julianne is going to wreck havoc to his life and to his political career in which he is running for Congress and the election is a few weeks away and he does not need a scandal. Knowing she made a grave mistake, she bravely goes to Christopher and admits what she did and wants to right this wrong. They both pretend to be a couple until the election. They are both attracted to each other but fight those feelings, especially Christopher, who is having a hard time trusting her because of what sh did. Does he finally overcome his trust issues and admit his true feelings to her? I don't want to give too much away so if you haven't bought this book, I totally recommenc that you do. Chris and Jules's story is beautiful that I was laughing and crying with them. From start to finish, this book was fabulous!!! I totally recommend it!!

Like most of the reviewers, I have loved all of Katy's books. She is a really great writer that keeps you entirely captivated throughout the story. I thoroughly enjoyed Campaigning for Christopher. Unlike most of the reviewers, I'm actually more TeamJules than TeamChris. Even though she did a horrible thing, what I love about her is her ability to admit her mistakes and make up for it. This is something that most of us can't do. It takes a lot of bravery to stand up to her mistakes, face her own guilt and also the criticisms and hatred of others. And even though she almost ruined Chris' life, it is really understandable if you can stand in her shoes. What I really love about the book is Katy bringing up the ugly side of humanity - betrayal, racism, deceit but she also brings up the great side of humanity - the ability to face one's mistakes, redemption, forgiveness. And of course, the sizzling chemistry between Jules and Chris is definitely amazing. I think this is by far one of the best stories of the Blueberry Lane Series. Can't wait to read more.

5++ STARS -- Campaigning for Christopher is the 4th and final book in Katy Regnery's Winslow Brothers series and is an absolutely dazzling and spectacular addition. The magnetic connection between these two characters is completely alluring which drew me into their world so much so that I finished this book in practically one sitting. I just didn’t want to put it down. Julianne Crow grew up on a reservation in South Dakota always living in a world of doubt and uncertainty, but ultimately decides to relocate to Philadelphia with hopes of making a difference. While waitressing at a wedding, she is preyed upon to do something hurtful to someone she doesn’t truly know. Although Julianne agrees, in the end she is left plagued by second thoughts and doubts when it is too late. Now determined to do the right thing to make amends for the grave mistake she made against Christopher, Jules offers to do anything she can to help repair the damage she has done. But she never anticipates the depth of feelings for Chris that overtake her mind, her heart, and her soul. The youngest of four sons, Christopher Winslow grew up knowing nothing but luxury, with every want he could ever have met. Now grown and determined to make a difference in the political arena to ensure the rights and needs for all are met, Chris is diligently focused on winning a congressional campaign. But when he is drugged by a black-haired beauty with “eyes like the night sky,” everything he has worked so hard for begins to slip from his grasp. So when she suddenly appears at his office offering to do whatever is needed of her to undo the extreme damage she has done, Chris struggles to see beyond the hurt she has caused and the unforgivable harm which ultimately resulted. However, when he reluctantly agrees, their day to day lives suddenly collide and the overwhelming connection between them grows quickly. But will Chris ever be able to let go of a mistrust he feels and accept the love of the most beautiful woman he has even seen and the most captivating woman he has ever met? One of the things that I most loved about this story was the courage and strength that Jules shows us. Although in the beginning Christopher continues to express animosity towards her, Julianne eventually begins to show her inner-strength as she starts to break out of her shell. Realizing that despite the error in judgment and mistakes she made, and the fact he has every right to be angry for what she had done, she is not going to simply be a receptacle for his anger. When they both almost simultaneously come to the realization that they need to let go of the past a bit and work together amicably to get through the situation, they begin to see inside the hearts and the souls of each other. As turned the final page of Campaigning for Christopher, my face was beaming with a smile from ear to ear. I absolutely loved this story and the soulful strength of each of these characters as they both struggled with their doubts and uncertainties and ultimately finding a love that would last a lifetime. I absolutely love that Katy creates such real to life characters, including flaws and errors in judgement, and specifically with Julianne being a plus-sized model. This attention to such great detail brings these characters to life for me leaving me with such a deep connection to them all making them feel as if they are my friends, and they are definitely a part of my life.

Ohhh Katy - she drew me in with her Modern Fairytale series and has captivated me with her Blueberry Lane Series. Those damn boys just keep me coming back for more. We finally meet Christopher, the youngest Winslow brother, and Julianne, the campaign ruining waitress. This was a fun, fast read. I started it in the afternoon and finished in one sitting. I wasn't expecting the twist Katy would give us for Julianne to help right her wrongs and make amends. Chris and Jules were easily relatable. And fact that Christopher was full of lust for Julianne but struggled with an internal war of "I want her, but I shouldn't" was written perfectly. But the thing I appreciated the most were Julianne's feelings on her relationship with Chris, he wanted "for right now" but she was falling for "forever" and she stood her ground. It was refreshing to have a love story where the heroine wasn't fawning all over the hero, but being completely honest in what she wanted and what she would emotionally be able to endure. I thought this was a great addition to the Blueberry Lane Series and highly recommend this story of betrayal to redemption.

This is a really character driven story, and I was fascinated by the portrayal of Julianne. She's a young Indigenous American, already marginalized by society just by her birth and therefore having to struggle for her place in the world even more so than some. She's got a loyal and loving mother (much to her advantage) but no relationship with her father, and a background of growing up on a reservation with all that entails. I really appreciated the details that went into making her character as authentic as possible. She's in the 'big city' now, working as a waitress and a plus sized model, and used to being harassed on the job or on the street. As such she's got a pretty tough skin. But she's still young and somewhat naive and the man who convinces her to perpetrate the devastating events that threaten Chris's campaign takes advantage of this. Remarkably, Julianne is absolutely willing to take responsibility for her mistake and own up to it, showing bravery and courage in the face of what could have been an even more devastating loss - her own freedom if Chris has chosen to press charges. But she's also smart enough to come up with a possible solution too, one that Chris reluctantly agrees to on the advice of his team. But that lack of trust between them, and his lack of faith in Jules being able to make it up to him means a slow start to their romance, as one would expect. Slowly but surely though, her true self shines through in her actions. She's really a caring and friendly and passionate woman, one who made a grievous mistake she is trying hard to fix. Chris's character was equally interesting. He has worked tirelessly on his campaign for Senator, and as a wealthy and privileged young man, he's got the financial means to put on a good race. But more than that, he's got the convictions and determination to be a man of the people. He's got strong plans for those parts of society that need the most help, including the Indigenous Native American tribes of the area. Meeting Julianne is both a curse and a blessing, as the unintended result of her treachery makes them a popular couple in the media and actually gives a boon to his campaign. In fact, Julianne's true heart shows throw in their campaign stops, and he's hard pressed to believe that she could have done what she did to him in the first place. It frustrates him to no end that he feels a sexual attraction to her, as she is a beautiful woman but a deceptive one too. Still his physical attraction to her can't be ignored, and he believes the best solution would be for them to give into the attraction and enjoy their weeks together until the election and the 'break-up' after which they'll go their separate ways. He's able to separate his physical feelings from his emotional ones, as he still doesn't trust her. But Julianne is unable to do this, as she realizes that she's falling for Chris and the good-hearted man that he is. She doesn't expect his forgiveness, but it doesn't stop her from working towards obtaining it. I really loved the two of them together, the obvious difficulties in building trust between them and the slow and steady workings of their hearts binding them together. The other aspects of this story that I really enjoyed were the behind the scenes looks at Chris's political campaign, and the obvious research that went into Julianne's character's background and the current state of Native American affairs in the U.S. 4.5 stars for this wonderful story.

So this was a very odd read for me, due to the fact that I HATED the heroine for more than half of the book. That being said, I couldn't put the book down. Julianne is a very naive heroine. When faced with a chance to do something that someone with a political agenda asked her to do, knowing it can ruin someone's life, she did it, without thinking of the bigger picture. I loved Chris's character. Yes, he was an @$$ throughout the book, but seriously? He was forced in to doing something he didn't want to do, with someone he despised. The book drew me in from the beginning and I seriously couldn't read it fast enough. Katy wrote an awesome book with this, and while one moment you may hate the hero/heroine, by the the end of the book they've both found a place in your heart and have redeemed themselves (I am seriously shocked by this, because I didn't think I would ever like Julianne.) I loved catching up with the rest of the Winslows, and seeing how they were doing. I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a phenomenal read

DON'T GET MAD, GET EVEN. When it comes to love the gloves come off. The one thing that Julianne and Christopher have in common is the ability to develop tunnel vision. Once they make a decision nothing can alter their focus. That skill can prove an essential asset when you have all the facts but fatal when based on hearsay. Julianne learned this the hard way. She let bias, anger and pride mislead her and wants to make amends, Where Julianne's pride influences her actions, Christopher's heart influences his. Trusting too easily may have cost Christopher everything he worked so hard to accomplish. A little luck, a lot of faith and a guardian angel may help make all Christopher's dreams come true. Campaigning for Christopher proved to be a real pistol in Katy Regnery's arsenal of stories. Neither Christopher or Julianne were willing to back down and that made the story hotter than any erotic novel. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
