book blurb

Sex. Lies. Greed. Power. Scandal. Politics.

Political strategist, Elizabeth McNeal has been called a lot of things throughout her career—bitch being at the top of the list—but she doesn’t let it get to her. She’s bold, she’s blunt, and she takes orders from no one. This is how she’s survived working in a man’s world.  She’s the master of diversion, and her specialty is winning an election—no matter the cost.

That is, until she meets her new client, Democratic candidate, Congressman William Baxter. Kind, considerate, insanely handsome, honest, and ten years her junior, he’s a unicorn among politicians. He infuriates her. He challenges her. Most of all, he makes her see past the scandalous world of politics and helps her to discover the heart of the woman inside her.

With sparks flying between them and the election rapidly approaching, the last thing either of them need is to be caught in a compromising position. Some lines are meant to be crossed and some rules broken, but for Elizabeth and Liam is it worth the cost of being politically incorrect?

my review

4.5 Stars

I have slightly mixed feelings about this book, Politically Incorrect.  On one hand, I LOVED it.  I devoured Liam and Lizzy’s story in one reading.  They left me entertained and so freaking happy. On the other hand… well, one element of the book bothered me.  It was small but still there.

Yes, age is just a number.  An unimportant one if you’re all consenting adults.  Want to know what’s more important??  A connection.  Sexual attraction and chemistry.  Finding someone who brings out the best in you and challenges you to be that person.  Not just here or there but consistently.

Elizabeth and Liam have all of that and much, much more.  Atomic sparks fly from the their first moments together and it is AWESOME.  Then their witty, smart banter left me on my toes and desperate for their next encounter.  I couldn’t wait for them to lose themselves to desire and lust.  I knew it was going to be incredible.

It’s also completely taboo.  Elizabeth is employed by him and Liam is running for office.  It’s a scandal in the making and it could ruin their careers.  This detail makes the book fun and intense.  I was anticipating the moment the shit hit the fan – the author does an amazing job connecting you to these two characters that you get all the feels from their romance and dilemmas.  I loved it.

But hidden in the middle of all of this spectacular reading was one detail that pissed me off every time it came up.  Elizabeth’s age.  It bothered me that she was made to look so old when that fact mattered but young and hot the rest of the book.  I hate that it objectified her – a man who possessed all of her qualities would have never ever been written about like she was.

This little detail probably just annoyed me so don’t let that affect you or give you any pause when it comes to purchasing this book because Politically Incorrect is worth reading.  It’s an excellent romance with a fun, sexy couple.  I was rooting them on and wanted their happily ever after so I would definitely recommend grabbing a copy of this book today.  It’s a must read!!
