This is a well crafted, genre crossing book. It has political, erotic, and dystopian themes. I've read a lot of dystopian books lately and the protagonists are usually adolescents. I really liked that in this book the main characters are adults. The book is well written, moving smoothly between past and the (near) future where the American government appears to be crumbling. I look forward to reading the next book in the series and especially want to know more about the new American society .

This book was recommended to me by another author who highly praised it and all I can say she was 100% correct. This was Simply an Incredible Read. Cecilia London takes you on the roller coaster ride of your life. It is filled with twists and turns and ups and downs and a ride that truthfully you don't want to get off because it is that thrilling.
There is a lot of different emotions in this book that I can say we're amazing. I cried right from the prologue and many more times throughout the book. It takes you from the past to the present with such ease that you can't wait to turn the page to see what happens next.
We meet Caroline a rising start in the Democratic Party a Congreswoman who unfortunately life throws a heartbreaking curve at with two small children she is looking to move ahead with her life and just get on with life with good friends she seems to be doing just fine.
When we meet Jack a up and coming Congressman who by all means is a "Playboy Millionaire" he crosses paths with Caroline at a party after some words where said about him on the campaign trail that were not so gracious and he doesn't find her to be very sincere in her apology and doesn't even want to accept it. But when the two get to talking long into the night a friendship is formed.
Even as different as the two of them are politically we start to see feeling develop more than friendship, you are cheering them on throughout hoping To see Caroline heal by the affection and love Jack shows her and you see that looks can be deceving when it comes to Jack.

Wow. I read the blurb and I can honestly say that it does NOT do justice to the story. It is soooo much more than Caroline’s unconscious recovery in a VA hospital.

The story starts off on the night it all went to hell. Two people are running for their lives. At the time, I didn’t know them but I felt the fear, the adrenaline rush through my blood, I felt the pain, the agony course through my body. When they stopped and did what they had to do, my heart was ripped into pieces. I felt silent tears falling only to fade away after sometime. The prologue was brutal and heart-wrenchingly breathtaking.

To say I am enamored with Cecilia’s writing would be an understatement. I’ve always been a sucker for romance and suspense and this one had both in spades. After the heart in your throat start, we flashback to five years ago when we meet the Caroline and Jack. They did not have a great beginning. When they first meet Caroline is recovering from a great loss and in her struggle does to survive the loss, she makes an ass of herself. Being the person that she is, she endeavors to silently mend what she has broken without of course Jack knowing. I did cringe at the conversation between them and I could not blame Jack at all. Sigh. Jack! What can I say about him, do you know the proverb still water runs deep, I think it was made for Jack. That man is not what he seems at all. Yes he was a douche before but there were reasons. While their friendship blossoms, he struggles to accept his past so that he can forge his future.

While this is happening, I timehop to the present time with my heart trying to attempt to make an escape from my body. The brutal truth of the current situation, the insanity of it all, makes me wanna hug my teddy and think of rainbows and care bears.

This was a compelling and great start to a new and exciting saga. Just from reading the prologue, I was instantly addicted. I was intrigued, and I couldn’t wait to find out more. I literally couldn’t put the book down. Cecilia has literally blown me away with this book. Her writing skills are so intelligent and she really knows how to keep you pulled in. I wasn’t quite sure how I would like it at first, seeing as it was going to have politics involved, but I loved reading about it. It wasn’t boring at all. Some of the things said and about the way she explained it, were actually impressive and I found myself wanting to know more and more.
I really liked how the storyline was laid out. You get bits and pieces of what is going on, but then you get what happened in the past. I felt that gave the story more and we get to see how the characters, Caroline and Jack met. We get to know them and see them grow together. I really loved both of these characters. They both were very intelligent and you could tell Cecilia did her homework on the topic.
Overall, this book was beyond amazing. I highly recommend reading this. I couldn’t stop once I started and I honestly don’t know if I can wait until the next book comes out! There is suspense and romance, plus all around great and thrilling read! Amazing job Cecilia! Cannot wait for the next one!
