My Thoughts: Predictable but Pleasant Political Read

       If you are a reader looking for danger, suspense and scandal . . . look elsewhere. This book is a sweet romance filled with witty banter, flirtation and real romance. Its not a book you need to over think or isn't over sexualized, it's just a pleasant romance to read a cold day. Where to rivals might realize they have something in common that could be more than a race.
      Though the plot and outcome may be cliche the characters are still cute and you still want them to have their HEA. Ursula Robles, or Lily, is a hard worker who as a single mom, a nurse and County Supervisor that decides to make a run for Congress. State Senator Jack Bengston is a privileged son of politics who's background groomed him for the Senate and higher. These two should be perfect rivals but turnout to be a perfect match instead, they can't help being friends and perhaps more, if the politics weren't between them. Ultimately it will come down to love or the Congressional seat?
      Overall the book is a good read that with a flowing plot that keeps you in Lily and Jack's relationship till the end. A reader may how how it might end but may still be a bit surprised at some of their decisions and how they choose to go about their relationship. It's a sweet romance were normally rivals in politics are known for being vicious and backstabbing, but here Lily and Jack are seen finding their equal and possible love, but question it's timing. So pick this book if your looking for a pleasant political read that will leave you happy in the end.
