Review: A Political Affair by Mary Whitney

Book Description

 October 16, 2012
This isn't Fifty Shades of Red, White, and Blue, but it is a love story with spice and political intrigue.

No one expected Stephen McEvoy to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age, least of all him. The scion of a revered political dynasty, he’s appointed to the Senate after his father’s untimely death. Now he’s in a tough election battle against an archconservative. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, he dismisses her as another pretty face—until her independent streak catches his attention. She soon finds him far more interesting than his Senator McEvoy persona. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. Their relationship becomes a political gamble in a tight election, and all the while, his opposition lies in wait for him to make a mistake. As Stephen’s past catches up with him, he and Anne must fight for their future. Their lives mean more than politics, and campaigns—like love—are either won or lost.

My Review:

Stephen McEvoy is a young Senator that tries to be re-elected after his dad pass away. The whole family is involved in the whole run for it.
He is a Democratic Senator and fights against the Republican candidate.

Anne Norwood comes in his live as a intern, she  is all he ever wanted, smart, pretty, loves outdoors, sweet but she is taboo. She is the daughter is a Rep, technically his counterpart. What I admire about the Norwood couple is that they allow their daughter to make her own choices and mistakes in her life.
They are very into each other and it becomes a real threat to his political carrier. It seems it will be a nasty game between Democrats and republicans and if he will make it and keep Anne is fr you to find out.....

I love the characters in this book, even the tramp Senator. I adore Lillian, Stephen's mother, she is adorable, so are the judge and the (older) couple who are family friends. It is a good book, a love story not so much politics i n it as you think. It shows Senators are only human too. I recommend it.
