Capital Confessions #2
Contemporary Romance 

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 fianc√© 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

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

I loved the first book in this series and I couldn't wait to read this one.  I haven't read that many teacher/student books, but this is the second one I have read recently and I really enjoyed it. 

We met Blair in the first book of this series. She's been going through a rough time. Daughter of a senator. Jilted bride. Below average law student. And it's not that I am glad she is all of these things, but it was nice to see that she wasn't the perfect person everyone thought or wanted her to be. She definitely had her flaws. Unfortunately for her, her parents are unhappy about the way things are going, but what I liked about Blair is that she doesn't care. She is finally living her life on her own terms. And one of those terms is attending a subpar law school. And even though her parents think she is out of her mind, Blair doesn't give two craps. She knows she is not a good student, she is okay with it and I admired her for that. 

When the book starts, Blair is sitting in Graydon Canter's class. She hates this class. For some reason he calls on her ALL THE TIME, which doesn't seem to happen in her other classes. It doesn't help that he is extremely good looking and just being in the same room with him makes Blair nervous. But Blair, god bless her, manages to handle everything he gives her, which only makes her even more interesting in Graydon's eyes.  

Graydon. What can I say about him? He's coming off of a horrible year. Basically forced to teach for a year, he is trying to get through it with no issues, but then Blair shows up in his class. From the moment he saw Blair, he was fascinated by her. Drawn to her. When they have to work together he does his best to keep his feelings hidden, but Blair is the girl for him. When they are together he get to see the real Blair and he wants nothing more than to be the man he think she deserves. 

Graydon & Blair were HOT. And it wasn't just because it was a teacher/student thing. They had ridiculous chemistry and once they had a little one on one time, they both felt it. They try to keep things professional and deny their feelings, but after a while they just can't do it anymore. Just when things seem to be going well, everything falls apart. Graydon had his own demons to battle and he let's that get in the way of his happiness and it takes a visit from Blair's sisters to knock some sense into him. 

And speaking of Blair's sisters, Kate, who appears in this book is front and center in the next book Falling for Danger. The author sets up the storyline toward the end of this book and I am looking forward to reading it. I actually look forward to reading any future books the author writes.

Contemporary Romance 

The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals...

Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she's landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she's determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.

William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It's time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn... 

When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret...
