moving on… Today I am reviewing In Bed With The Opposition by Stephanie Draven.
Armed with a sassy haircut, a sharp wit, and a personal list of rules for all life’s exigencies, Grace Santiago is a fiercely loyal Senate staffer who has everything under control. At least until famous political pundit Ethan Castle walks back into her life. Grace hasn’t forgotten their disastrous affair in law school, but she can’t resist his bad boy charm.
When Grace learns that Ethan has been hired as a political gunslinger for the other side, her loyalties—and her heart—are torn in two. Though their sexual chemistry can’t be denied, they find themselves locked in political combat. Ethan believes that all is fair in love and war, but he won’t throw the election—not even to win Grace’s heart. So what can a good girl like Grace do, but learn to play dirty?
Two candidates. One election. May the best man—or woman—win!

Published August 15th 2012 by Entangled Publishing: Indulgence
I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
(but since we don’t really do 1/2′s around here I’m rounding up to 5)
So my thoughts on this book… well first let me start with the cover. Is that not one of the sexiest female leads pictured on a cover?! I love it!! It totally fits the picture I have in my head of Grace.
Second – the tag line shown on the cover… WOW – LOVE IT!
Next – I love Grace! I love her loyalty, her tenacity, her spunk, but I hate that she lies to herself through most of the book. I think I really hated that because we all do it… of course not about the same things but we all lie to ourselves about something.
I loved seeing Grace grow and learn and open up to live her life. I loved the chemistry that was always present between Grace and Ethan – LOVE IT! Ethan is like the perfect compliment to Grace – reckless and a risk taker. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Ethan is completely gorgeous, right… that never hurts anyone =)
The picture in my head of Ethan is much better than what’s on this cover, but that’s ok – the picture you need is Grace not Ethan. Grace is awesome – I think you all will really like her. I am not really into politics & you don’t have to be to really enjoy this book – obviously. I think it is great that this book released during an election time =) Nice planning by the Marketing Team at Indulgence!
Anyway… I think you should definitely check out this book – I think you’ll enjoy it.
Here’s a little after thought for you all as well.
Now… I am on a Taylor Swift kick her lately and her new album just dropped – have you heard it yet? Well the title track – Red – is perfect for this book. The sentiment behind it is so perfect – Taylor Swift explains it as the emotions of the relationship are extreme – love, anger, intense passion, – the color red encompasses it all. Seriously – listen to the song – here’s a performance from last night on CBS’s The Late Show. I’m working off of my phone and my work PC so I can’t embed the video right now… but click on this link and I’ll embed the video when I get home from work tonight.
