    Scandal meets The West Wing!

    Politics, sex and the potential for scandal make for an explosive combination and I was really interested in reading THE PHOENIX CANDIDATE as soon as I read the synopsis. I have to say that it was so much more than I expected! I think of it as Scandal meets The West Wing. Grace Colton is a US Congresswoman from Oregon whose personal tragedy impelled her to run for and ultimately win her congressional seat. Out for a night in town with her friends, she meets an attractive stranger and has a mind-blowing one night stand with him. The following morning, Grace receives a call with the potential to change her life: she is being considered as a running mate for a presidential hopeful and has to be vetted. Problem is the political consultant, the person responsible for vetting her and fixing her image is her one night stand from the previous night. A night that was supposed to be free of strings or regrets has become something that could destroy Grace's chance at the VP slot. Jared Rankin is the man who makes it happen behind the scenes and much of a dark horse for most of the story. During the process of vetting Grace, he finds himself intrigued by her and sets out to get to know her and they very quickly find themselves blurring the lines between professional and personal. Grace and Jared together are a sizzling combination and even though Grace is willing to give Jared control in the bedroom, she will go head-to-head against him outside of it. In a world where intrigue and scandal are rife, they take very reckless chances that could destroy their careers but I still can't help but root for them to work out. I am a news junkie and especially follow the political news, so seeing real life happenings incorporated into this story so well was very exciting for me. THE PHOENIX CANDIDATE is so well-written and is the perfect balance of politics and romance. I absolutely enjoyed everything about this book - strong and complicated characters, very steamy scenes, secrets, scheming opponents, great dialogue and so much more kept me turning the pages. Ms. Tretheway has given me a reason to reconsider my dislike for trilogies and I really look forward to reading the rest of the series. *I received this book for free from the Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*
