The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

The daughter of one of the Senate's most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies. 

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest "Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?

Includes a preview of the next Capital Confessions novel, Falling for Danger

Forbidden but Enticing

Blair Reynolds is political royalty. From birth she has been groomed to be the perfect political asset - first as the perfect daughter and now she's poised to become the perfect wife until she catches her fiancé in a compromising position with his best man. Also, the discovery that her father had a mistress and a child add to the destruction of her illusions and she's determined to put her life together and find herself. The first step is going to law school. Blair's struggles with law school get compounded by her visceral attraction her super hot professor. Graydon Canter went from the kid from the wrong side of town to a rising star in legal circles in Chicago until he tanked his career, wrecked his reputation and destroyed his marriage. The teaching job in a second-rate law school gives him the opportunity to regroup and rebuild his career and he cannot afford to mess this up. Blair Reynolds is a big threat to his fresh start because he wants her from the first time he sees her but he knows that getting involved with his student would completely destroy what little credibility he has left. Too bad because his body is not listening to his brain and he craves Blair and can't stay away from her. Talk about forbidden romance! The sexual chemistry between Blair and Graydon is majorly intense but what sucked me into PLAYING WITH TROUBLE was the journey of discovery both Blair and Graydon went through. Blair has been held out as a symbol of perfection, but she knows how far from the truth that is. She's not smart, can't decide on a career and she can't even keep up with the workload in law school. All she has going for her is her beauty but she keeps at it and the transformation is so great. She becomes assertive and bold, not afraid to ask for what she wants. Graydon has an addictive personality, which played a heavy role in his fall from grace and he's afraid that he would destroy Blair. She has to convince him that what they have is special and she fights so hard for him, but she would not settle for less than what she deserved. Ultimately, Graydon has to decide if Blair would be enough. "I’m willing to fight for us, but I can’t do it if I’m fighting on my own. And I won’t fight you. I want to be happy. I want to have kids. I want a future with a man who will treat me the way I deserve to be treated." I love PLAYING WITH TROUBLE. The drama, the angst, the sexual tension - all of it makes a very delicious package. The characters are really fun and the story kept me turning the pages and I can't wait for Kate's story. Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I thought this one was awesome. A great forbidden attraction story between a professor and his student that definitely turns into so much more! It's very well written, great pace, and I loved the characters. There's steamy hot chemistry but also a very touching love story. It's a great look at the dirty side of politics and the toll it takes on a family as well. This can easily be read stand alone but I definitely have to go back and read book 1 in this series! Graydon Cantor came from nothing, made it big, then lost it all. Now he's getting his life back on track, the last thing he needs is an uncontrollable attraction to one of his students. Add in the fact that she is the daughter of a powerful politician and nothing but trouble can lay ahead. Gray knows that, but when they are paired together to work on a project the attraction is too strong to ignore. Blair Reynolds has lived her whole life as the good daughter. Just once she wants to experience life on her terms. When she realizes her attraction for her professor isn't one sided she knows this may be the one thing worth breaking the rules for. I highly recommend this one.
