Christopher Winslow was a man that wanted to make a difference in the world so he left his family business to campaign to run for congress. He was a man that lived his life for his political career always on the straight and narrow. He had nothing that could get in his way, no skeletons in his closet, no dirty laundry. He was an opponent’s worse nightmare. His opponents were always trying to find ways to tarnish his public image. His sister’s wedding was the perfect opportunity. Target a down-on-her-luck waitress feed her a line of how evil he is and let her do the dirty work. Julianne was that woman. She is a woman far from home pursuing a modeling career and waitressing for a catering company to make ends meet. With just a couple of modeling jobs under her belt and no prospects in her future, she was trying to decide if she should just return home. So when she was approached by the man in the black hat to take down the “evil man running for congress” she saw that as her opportunity to do something worthwhile enabling her to go home with her head held high. It’s in this final act that she learns a lot about herself and who she is and Christopher understands his capacity to love, forgive, and trust.
To forgive or not to forgive. This decision is what made this book so good. Chris really had to look at himself and see what he was willing to forgive and add to that the fact he was falling in love with her. Watching him go through the gamut of emotions to get to where he needed to be and where all the readers knew he should be is what made this book for me. That and watching Jules never give up on him and herself. To stick to her guns and be true to herself no matter how uncomfortable it may have made her feel. It's nice to have a heroine with so much integrity and truth to everything she does even if it was a little misguided at first. You still saw she was doing it because she felt it was right.
A beautiful story about finding out who you truly are and finding how to love and forgive along the way.
I liked this book the best of all the Winslow brothers stories because I loved the storyline with enemies becoming lovers.
Julienne is mislead to believe Christopher is a bad guy running for office and takes action to smear his reputation. As soon as she realised her mistake she offers to make it up to him by being his fake girlfriend, but can he go trough with it when he hate her, or do he really hate her?
I liked the dynamic between the two characters and found that it was well written in my opinion. This authors stories always contains a lot of feelings and this story is no different, it's packed with feelings. So bring your handkerchief, the tears will flow at some point.
There were two things keeping it from being full pot, the voice again; it's not the most comfortable listening to but not enough bothering to drop the book. The second thing is that we never got to know who "black hat" was and nail him. But this is my personal wishes, for others it can be enough as it is.
I liked this series, even though I haven't read the stories about the English brothers beforehand it was no problem. Maybe I will read them now.
