Liz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.
Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.
But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.
Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?
Brady sighed. "This is almost whatever you want it to be. It's not public. It's not in the news. It's not a point the campaign can use against me. It's a woman and a man taking what they can in a world where it's not feasible for us to be together. I'm not promising you much, but I'm only asking for discretion. Everything else you give me is up to you."
“We should go,” he said, lust evident in his voice. Even knowing it could be a bad idea, she nodded. “Couldn’t agree more.”
This is the first book I have read by K.A. Linde and it was an amazingly written story. I started reading this book and could not put my Kindle down. A forbidden love affair with a hint of a love-triangle create a page turning drama that is full of angst, need, and, most importantly, lust with a twist of love. The main characters, Liz and Brady, meet and there is an instant attraction between them. Liz is smart, feisty, and independent. Brady is sinfully sexy, confident and driven to succeed on his campaign at all cost.
I can’t wait to read the second in this series.
