FALL IN LOVE WITH JUSTICE
This delicious read will transport you from the nation's capital to a remote island territory in the Pacific and back again.
Catherine Rousseau is an ambitious senator with a painful past. She sacrifices herself for her country and knows how to get what she wants. When she sets her sights on the Oval Office and amending the Constitution, she can't afford to be distracted. Especially not by Harrison Parker, the sexy and brooding senator newly appointed to Congress.
But when they're thrown together and their goals collide, will they find themselves chasing justice . . . and each other?
Delectable by Mila West is a fast-paced political romance with a dash of suspense. It follows Catherine Rousseau, an Army veteran turned U.S. Senator, and Harrison Parker, Catherine’s Senate colleague and romantic interest.
Catherine served as an Army Judge Advocate General attorney and was wounded in an attack by a suicide bomber in Iraq. She bears the scars from that day and still carries shrapnel in her body. As a Senator, Catherine is part of a group proposing a Constitutional amendment that would grant federal voting rights to U.S. territories. In addition, Catherine is seriously considering running for President.
Harrison is a rookie Senator driven by justice and compassion. His Senate work puts him in close proximity with Catherine and they share a mutual attraction and admiration. Harrison has suffered heartbreak in the past that has kept him away from having a serious relationship again. That changes when Catherine comes into his life.
When the story begins, there’s a pre-established sexual tension between the two of them that comes to fruition. However, since we don’t see the entire buildup of their relationship, I felt that something was missing since the relationship isn’t fully explored within the space of the story.
As for the pacing of the book, it moves along at a quick clip and makes for a fast read. There’s a bit of suspense toward the end, along with a neatly wrapped-up ending.
Given the shorter length of the book, the relationship isn’t as fully developed as I would have liked. But I enjoyed the strong heroine and the hero who is ready to support her and stand by her no matter what. All in all, it’s a quick and interesting read.
I received a review copy of this book from the author.
