Jan Clifford has been taking a break from women while she figures out how to create a life that is more fulfilling than the country club set of her parents and her job in the family's investment firm.
When Angie and Jan are set up on a blind date, the chemistry is immediate, but each wonders if she can really fit into the other's world. Can the politician who fights for the little guy make things work with the investment manager who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth?
Before it has time to get very far, this new relationship will be put to the test. First, Angie must decide how she really feels when her first love suddenly comes back into her life. And then the worlds of politics and finance collide when Jan refuses to walk away from a business deal that threatens Angie's re-election to a second term in Congress.
Can this intense connection they feel keep Angie and Jan together? Only hopeless romantics believe that love is enough, right?
Following on from the award-winning debut novel, Exception to the Rule, Cindy Rizzo again gives us a story that blends romance with the important issues of our time.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First, let me say up front that I really enjoyed this book. It had romance, political intrigue, interesting characters, and a few good plot twists. As the book blurb states: Angie Antonelli has the life she’s always dreamed of—a promising political career, a supportive family, and great friends. The one thing missing is what she always hoped she’d have by now, a committed relationship with the woman of her dreams. Jan Clifford has been taking a break from women while she figures out how to create a life that is more fulfilling than the country club set of her parents and her job in the family’s investment firm. When Angie and Jan are set up on a blind date, the chemistry is immediate, but each wonders if she can really fit into the other’s world. What strikes me about this book is that it follows the theme of finding one’s self, or identity (in addition to the themes of love and hope). Everybody has three main questions to ask themselves in this life—Who am I? Where am I going? How will I get there?—and the characters of Angie and Jan are doing just that. The author has created well thought-out, believable characters that struggle with these questions, yet find their way with grace, humor, and love. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced lesbian love story. In accordance with FTC regulations, I received a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have provided.
