Review: Flirting with Scandal by Chanel Cleeton

Title: Flirting with Scandal

Author: Chanel Cleeton

Synopsis:

The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals…

Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she’s landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she’s determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.

William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It’s time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn…

When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret…

***MY REVIEW***

5 out of 5 stars

I have to admit that I am not the biggest fan of romance books set against a political backdrop but I had been dying to read a Chanel Cleeton book for some time now and Flirting with Scandal, the first book in her Capital Confessions series, was on sale so I decided to give it a shot. And good Lord I am so happy that I decided to give this book a chance because it was fucking amazing! I absolutely loved reading about Jackie and Will. Their story was super hot and scandalous and I couldn't get enough of them. Given that I'm usually not the biggest fan of books featuring politics, I really liked that Cleeton managed to make the political stuff important to the plot but not to overwhelming or over the top. The politics and romance were balanced perfectly and made this book a really fun and satisfying romance novel.
