Selena Laurence has done it again. Setting another of her exciting Powerplay novels in the high stakes atmosphere of Washington, D. C. where even a hint of scandal can destroy the lifelong dream a highly qualified candidate for the Supreme Court. This is a steep and crooked roller coaster track leading to a rocky second chance romance that explores the highly volatile subjects of race and the taboo of interracial dating. Teague and Deanna come face to face 12 years after she caved to pressure from her wealthy, white and deeply prejudiced parents and walked away from the man she loved. Her defection left him broken and bitter while Deanna has had to live with her guilt and her regret. Newly united, they face devastating and impossible consequences of those choices with a grace and dignity that I found especially riveting. It's a love story that is sinfully sexy, achingly poignant and beautifully color blind. Kudos to this amazing author!

Teague and Deanna were in love and engaged but Deanna’s family pushed her to break it off with him. Teague was from the wrong side of town with different skin color from them. This sends their lives in 2 different directions until one day, they both end up in DC and cross paths again. Teague is being nominated by the President for Supreme Court decision and Deanna is the new reporter assigned to cover it. Deanna is the only person that knows all of Teague’s secrets. This was a phenomenal journey for second chance love. There is so much hurt between Teague and Deanna. Can he forgive? Will she forgive herself? This is all happening as his dream of becoming a Supreme Court justice is within his grasp. So many secrets, so many political games, all keeping you tied to this incredible story. Loved every heart pounding, sexy, passionate moment.
