Some seats in Congress turn over once in a lifetime, and the election isn’t a race; it’s a crowded, mad dash for Washington, D.C. When the local congressional seat opens up for the first time in forty years, Sonoma County Supervisor Ursula “Lily” Robles knows it may be her only opportunity. Though she’s a long shot, she likes her chances.
The night before she announces her candidacy, she meets a handsome stranger at a coffee shop. He’s the first man to catch her eye since her husband, and she’s taken with him—until she realizes he’s her leading opponent in the primary. State Senator John “Jack” Bengston can’t place where he’s seen her face, but he’d like to get to know her more. There are times when politicians want to put their identities aside.
This was a REALLY enjoyable read for me.  I liked the realness of the plot line and the characters were interesting, and kept me reading long into the night.  The plot line was different, and I wanted to know HOW these two, who seemed at a crossroads, were going to pull off a relationship and keep on running against each other. 
Jack is charming, and determined, and Lily, is not a pushover, but she has a big heart, and despite not wanting to be "the girl" in the race, she sure has girl feelings towards Jack. 
My favorite scene was at the Democratic Dinner that Lily wasn't supposed to go to, you finally see her break down and actually let herself be a woman, and have those "Feelings" we all HATE when we see the boy we like with another girl.
Fabulous read, interesting characters and I know many of my followers will enjoy it!  Just so you know, the bedroom door is closed!!
Enjoy and Happy Reading!
