Flirting With Scandal by Chanel Cleeton

May 19, 2015
Capital Confessions #1
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...

I really enjoyed this book. This is the first book I have read by Chanel Cleeton but it won't be my last. I am the girl that is hooked on Scandal so this book was right up my alley. It was refreshing to read something different for a change.

Jackie Gardner is bright, talented, beautiful woman. A woman that also has a secret past. Her mother is quite known around town as the woman who works her way through the men of political status. I got why Jackie was so afraid of relationships. Her mother didn't set a very good example. Jackie is the daughter of a Senator, a very powerful Senator. Only problem is, no one knows that. At times Jackie annoyed me but overall I enjoyed watching her character grow.

William Clayton was sexy and swoonworthy.  It was so nice to get a male character that was truly likeable. Charming even. I loved everything about him. He is definitely book boyfriend material.

Flirting with Scandal had the perfect mix of humor, chemistry and sexual tension that was off the charts. It flowed really well and kept me glued to my kindle. I also loved that it is a standalone. It is so hard to find a good standalone these days and this one won my vote.
