Publisher's Summary

Presidential candidate Jane Kincaid - gorgeous, dynamic and extremely driven - is taking the country by storm, passionately outlining her blueprint for America. Voters quickly fall in love with her...and so, unwittingly, does Secret Service Agent Alexandria Warner. 

Their mutual attraction begins to take on a fiery life of its own, and soon Jane fears that their intense feelings for each other are a tinder box that could destroy the landscape of her career...and alter the history of the country. 

Jane had always expected the road to the White House would exact a high personal toll. She just never knew how high...until she's forced to choose between her heart and her political destiny.

Perfect way to kick off Jane and Alex story..

Enjoyed reading this book and the follow up book The Campaign and decided to support the audio because of Lori Prince who once again does an amazing job. Truly enjoyed listening to Jane and Alex love develope and Jane’s mom Maria is a bonus of sweetness. It’s an easy listen and flows the entire time. Well worth a credit or purchase. I Highly recommend this audio, Ms. Richardson books always leave me pleased and I often reread or listen to audio of her books. Looking forward to listening to The Campaign as well.

Not the best voices

The voice for Alex basically ruined this book for me. I wish the narrator had not tried to make Alex’s voice so deep with a forced southern accent. It could have been much more subtle and make the performance way better.

Not a bad story

I just couldn't call in love with the characters. Lori Prince can be good but shine of her voices are a bit annoying in this one. I think this one might br better as a book.

So good🥰

This was really good! It was kind of a slow burn but it held you wanting more. To get to that moment when all is right in the world. And when it does it is so wonderful. The author made me a bit on edge and worried it wouldn’t turn out or we would be left with a cliff hanger but she didn’t so that is really good. The sex scenes were steamy and I had to rewind if I got distracted cus I wanted to hear it all. The rougher voice doesn’t fit the picture on the cover but at least we knew who was whom. So another amazing job from Ms. Prince as well. Her seductive voice and clear and emotional voice lead this story into its full intuition.

Great Audiobook

Lori Prince is a great narrator of this excellent story. There have been many authors who have written about this same theme but Richardsons characters are very well presented, so this one goes to the top of my list.

Terrible narration

I don’t usually write reviews but I loved that last novel I read by Tracey Richardson and wanted to read another. While the story was meh, okay, the narration was painful from beginning to end. One of the main characters, Alex, sounded more like a female version of Forrest Gump then anything to be desired for. It made this book very difficult to get through. Even the sex scenes left me wishing it was over than having to listen to the two characters talk to each other. Quite unfortunate…

I loved this book

And I am looking forward to listening to the sequel. I loved the characters, and narration is always great when Lori Prince is at the mike.
But, it is time to write about non left “liberal” democrat lesbians, it is time to talk about a republican lesbian, or to push less the agenda of democrats, I am sure there are republican lesbians at least in the same ration to those in the democrat side.
I am not a political woman but I would like to read a WLW book who is more conservative, without converting them to the “liberal side...

Couldn't finish

the story went from okay she's alright to OMG i love her in like no time at all and felt really sudden, I found al lot of it to be quite cringe worthy and couldn't actually finish the book. I can see the appeal for some people but its not for me.
