Book Review: The Last Minute First Lady
WHAT’S ONE ITSY, BITSY, LITTLE LIE?
Cassian Anders will be the youngest governor in Illinois history... If he wins.
That’s all everyone seems to talk about these days. Jolie Coldwell isn’t one of them. As a journalist, her priorities comprise digging up dirt on crooked politicians and local cover-ups. When her latest exposé on a congressman lands her in hot water, her days are reduced to covering the senior center’s casino night.
Unexpectedly, news breaks: the on-air investigative segment needs a replacement. This promotion advance could her career.
She needs a breaking story. She needs it now.
The road to office is ruthless compared to the courtroom. Without warning, Cassian Anders’ popularity rating falls, threatening his position on the ballot. He will do whatever it means to secure votes. Now, not only is he engaged, but he’s getting married to his non-existent fiancée...
He’s never relied on luck, but when a convenient but unorthodox wife falls into his lap? He makes her a deal.
He needs a wife. He needs it now.
Will Jolie and Cassian be able to fool the public long enough? Can she handle the public poking around in her past, one she would rather keep under wraps... Above all, can she be a model first lady or are they destined to be a scandal?
The Last-Minute First Lady is a steamy marriage of convenience romance. Perfect for readers who love outrageous in-laws, honeymoons to Napa Valley, and crooked politicians. This novel contains cursing and sex scenes, and intended for audiences 18 years and older.
This is the first book I have read by this author. I really enjoyed it a lot. It was a nice change from the current books I have been reading, which is a lot of dark romances. Not that I don't love my dark romances but every once in a while, I need a lighter contemporary romance. All of the characters were so engaging. Now that I have finished this book, I will check out others by Tinia Montford. The Last Minute First Lady is sure to bring the laughter with engaging characters that you will fall in love with!
Right from the beginning, i liked Jolie. She was a woman not afraid to get her hands dirty with a bulldog attitude. So, I am not surprised that she agreed to marry Cassian not for love but for convenience. Plus, Cassian could help her with her career. In addition, to the fact that Cassian needed to marry for his public image. The "perfect" situation where neither was in it for love. The love part was a slow burn one. That really heated up each time that Cassian and Jolie grew closer to one another.
I do have to give a shout out to Jolie's friend, Helena. She was funny and I loved her.
