book blurb

The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

The daughter of one of the Senate’s most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies.

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest “Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?

my review

5 Stars

I was consumed by the second book in the Capital Confessions series.  Playing with Trouble was an incredibly fun and sexy read that I devoured in one sitting.  Blaire and Gray’s passionate journey toward finding happiness and solace in their lives is one you do not want to miss out on.

I loved how nothing about this affair on paper makes sense.  Their student/teacher connection makes a relationship taboo.  The age difference is a stumbling block.  Yet when the two are together, it feels so right and so unavoidable. I was rooting for them.

Blaire and Gray are at Hannover Law School rebuilding their lives – basically hiding out from their own harsh realities.  They’re both desperate to end the chaos of their lives. So they have carefully crafted plans to overcome their very public reputations and to secure their futures – all in hopes of finding a little bit of normalcy. They thought they could just lay low and regroup.  Neither one of them was expecting to find someone to care about or to experience the intense lust they feel when they meet.  It’s overwhelming and they almost have no clue what to do with it all.

Their lives are a hot mess of drama.

And the longer I spent inside of Blaire’s world, the more it felt like I was looking at a picture in a coloring book. Blaire’s picture (aka her life) has been completed as it was expected of her – delicately colored within the lines and done to perfection. Except Blaire’s life has been rocked and she was pushed to color outside lines. Her imagine will never be exactly as it was originally designed but the longer Blaire looks, the more she likes it the way it is. It makes her want to chase after what she desires and needs – Gray.  I loved it.

I seriously could not get enough of this duo.  Every scene with Blaire and Gray kept a smile on my face.  Whether they were in class using verbal banter as their foreplay or being privy to their private sexual thoughts and actions – it all left me completely entertained and wanting more because their passion for one another jumps off the page.  They capture your attention and makes your lady bits tingle.  It is spectacular.

Playing with Trouble is a top recommendation from me, as was the first book, Flirting with Disaster.  Definitely check out the Capital Confessions series.
