Red, White and Screwed by Holly Bush
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Political strategist Glenda Nelson is having a meltdown. Her handpicked, very married Congressional candidate was just caught climbing out of the window of the Sleepytown Motel, and her philandering ex-husband seems to have the most to gain from the colossal scandal that follows. As Glenda attempts to salvage the campaign in a hotly contested race, conservative and liberal pundits pounce on the story to further their own agendas.
Glenda’s love life is nonexistent to say the least, that is, until she meets handsome artist Chris Goodwich. Chris’s easy-going, carefree outlook on life couldn’t be more different than the 90-mph crazy train that is Glenda’s, but the more time she spends with him, the more she craves his calming presence, his sexy smile, and his steamy embraces. Is Chris worth taking a chance on?
Between the pressure of full-blown spin control mode, rapidly declining job security, refereeing two teenagers, caring for aging parents, and spending hours on her therapist’s couch trying to get past her ex’s crushing betrayal, Glenda finds love and makes the long trek back to happy.
My Review: 4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed this book. However, I’m going to talk about my only hang-up first…the book cover and title. Not my favorite. I do judge a book by it’s cover and thought I was going to be reading something completely different than what I read. I was pleasantly surprised instead. So I wish the book had a different cover and maybe even a different title. Other than that…the story was good. Not too fluffy. Had some real depth with real issues. Once I picked it up, I didn’t want to put it down. I’d actually like to follow Glenda on another journey to see where life takes her and how her kids continue to grow and how (SPOILER ALERT) her relationship with Chris blossoms. Add this one to your to-be-read pile!
