Book Summary:

Grace Colton’s life is a blur—security, appearances, and a desperately fast ramp-up to Election Day. Political consultant Jared Rankin is pulling the strings to win the White House with the Conover-Colton ticket.

But the fragile relationship Grace and Jared forged could be ruined by secrets traded for political leverage. She’s hiding her new relationship with Jared from the public, and concealing a deeper secret from everyone.

When Grace reveals the explosive truth to her running mate, squeaky-clean Senator Conover must confront his own haunted past. Grace’s future—and their campaign—could be ruined by the lies meant to protect what they love most.

Peek behind the curtain and under the covers in this sexy political drama that exposes the true cost of ambition, lust and sacrifice.
The Phoenix Campaign is an erotic romance set in the world of presidential election politics. Recommended for mature readers due to sharp dialogue, wickedly hot sex, and a few delicious taboos. This full-length novel is second in a series but can be read as a standalone.




politics and sex are a match made in heaven. 😉

Grace and Jared are back at it in this dramatic, sexy & sometimes whiny second installment of the Phoenix series that will have all of the pundits talking. If Grace thought that releasing the picture of her and Jared was bad….well, the secrets she now keeps are so much worse. She and Jared may have just professed their love for each other, but Grace is still a little unclear as to where they’re headed…and she can’t get anything out of Jared. Of course, she doesn’t ask the right questions either.

GAH. I have to admit, I enjoyed this book for the most part – and I love this series – but Grace infuriated me in this one. Don’t we know that keeping secrets only leads to disappointment and an explosion that otherwise could have been avoided?! I spent a large majority of this book wanting to slap Grace for her complete idiocy. WOMAN, PLEASE.

This book was redeemed with hot and delicious sex that somehow made up for Grace’s internal tantrums and selfish decisions. Even though Jared and Grace are rarely in the same State at the same time, when they are they do not waste any time. I loved the exploration of their sexual relationship. As Grace begins to let go, she begins to start asking for things she never thought she would. Things that are a little darker…a little grittier. mmmhmmmm, YUP, that’s the good stuff right there.

The ending was my savior. I felt like a soaking wet towel that had just been wrung out. I had been put through so much in this story and I was so incredibly thankful for that ending. I would have lost my mind otherwise. This one gets a 3.75 for me – & I am so looking forward to book three – ON TO THE ELECTION, BITCHES!
