Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from InkSlinger PR and from the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”


From authors Chelle Bliss and Brenda Rothert comes a smoldering standalone enemies to lovers romance that will, ahem…check all your boxes.  


I hate him. Jude Titan is everything that’s wrong with the male sex: cocky, domineering and loaded with swagger. Oh, and did I mention he’s a Republican? Yeah, the guy’s so conservative he leans to the right when walking. And lucky me, I’m running against him for Senate. But I’ve got plenty of fight in me. A golden boy war hero opponent with a smile that leaves melted panties in its wake? Bring. It. On.


Damn, she’s sexy. Reagan Preston intrigues me from the moment I lay eyes on her. And speaking of laying…I want between those thighs. But I want to make her burn for me first. Every debate and stolen moment is foreplay for us. She claims she hates me, but her body tells a different story. I plan to win this election, but I also want to win the sharp, fiery Democrat who captures my attention like no woman ever has. Politics is filthy, just like all the things I want to do to Reagan Preston.

My Thoughts:

Jude Titan is running for office.  Reagan Preston is also running for office.  Almost like a “running gag”, they always seem to end up at the same place at the same time.  It’s going to be race of political parties that seem to develop a thing for each other.  The page-turner is who will come out on top at the end and will they end up as a couple.  I found it an interesting concept where you have two good-looking candidates who feel a connection as they continue to cross paths as they travel across their state.  These two had me thinking about James Corville and his wife Mary Matalin. 

The authors do a great job at creating the sexual tension between our two main characters.  And they show us that you may be physically apart but there can still be that tension.  They’re also good about showing how tough it is to be in the public eye.  These ladies work well together because the reader will not be able to tell who is penning which scene or character.  I applaud them for taking on the real problem of our nation’s vets and their healthcare.  As well as politics - especially with the current turmoil between our two presidential candidates.

I will warn you that there’s a very sad letter somewhere in this story.  So please have a tissue handy just in case – thank goodness I’ve learned to keep a box close at hand.  This may be a work of fiction but that letter puts a voice out there for our vets who have similar situations.  Personally, I feel like every vet that comes home should write a letter to his or her congressman or senator so that they really understand what these people went through.  We’ve come a long way since Vietnam but this just shows how much more work we still have to do.  The book is also a great incentive to thank those men and women for their service.

The sad part for me is that you know both people cannot win.  But in their personal life they both have the chance of coming out the winner.  Just like in real politics, our authors also show the nastiness that can occur.  Too bad I couldn’t vote for Jude or Reagan come voting time in November.  This is a book that I can see myself reading more than once and not just when people are running for office.
