'A Political Affair' Book Tour - Review

A Political Affair

A Political Affair isn't Fifty Shades of Red, White, and Blue, but it is a love story with spice and political intrigue. Stephen McEvoy never expected to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age—or to fight to keep it. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, Stephen dismisses her as another pretty face—until her independent streak catches his attention. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. During a tough election, their relationship is an impossible political gamble. Campaigns—like love—are either won or lost.

**My thoughts**

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I started to read this book, but it was better than I had anticipated. The relationship between Stephen and Anne is pure and real, which is quite unlike the scandalous sex situations we have come to expect in political stories. The book almost pokes fun at the stupidity of those scandals, such as Monica Lewinski and Bill Clinton. And it almost gives a middle finger to Washington, showing that true love is still possible and morals don't have to be vacated. It also shows how the political parties can still come together as human beings.

You'll root for them the whole way through, even as others try to get in their way. You'll applaud those who support them. You'll hope that other political alliances can work out so well.

Sex scenes do exist, but are not too steamy, for those who prefer a more modest read.

Even before she graduated from law school, Mary knew she wasn't cut out to be a real lawyer. Drawn to politics, she's spent her career as an organizer, lobbyist, and nonprofit executive. Nothing piques her interest more than a good political scandal or romance, and when she stumbled upon writing, she put the two together. A born Midwesterner, naturalized Texan, and transient resident of Washington, D.C., Mary now lives in Northern California with her two daughters and real lawyer husband.

  1. I don’t really have a favorite political couple. I can completely relate to the author’s bio though, I am in law school right now and I am considering looking at non-traditional legal jobs, maybe not a lobbyist, but I would love to eventually end up in house somewhere rather than in a law firm. I was a political science major in undergrad and my senior seminar focused on politicians and their lives (how they ended up where they are), it was fascinating and I think it would be fun to see a fictional book on the subject.

    Thanks for the info and giveaway!
