I have been counting down the days to this release since I saw the first teaser. Joanne Schwehm had me completely enthralled in this fast-paced and different love story. My emotions ranged from happiness to heartache to anger and back to happiness with the surprises Incumbent had.

I really liked how different Lucy and Drake were. I haven't read characters like them before. Lucy is shy and reserved. She keeps to herself and only has one friend, Mason. Drake is the guy dreams are made of. He is incredibly intelligent, sexy, a family man, has a killer body and heart of gold. When these two meet it was as if the world stopped and was thrown back on its axis. There was something about the other that just drew them in. I think my favorite thing about them was that they were nerds and embraced it fully. If it wasn't reading an actual newspaper it was the love for history, learning and teaching. At their core was someone who wanted to help shape and better the lives of those around them. For Lucy it was through her teaching. For Drake it was through policy change with his seat in the Senate. I loved the relationship between Drake and Lucy. It was light and easy and they both got to be themselves. They were able to relax, let their guard down and just be.

But with Drake being in the public eye and his every move scrutinized they have to be very careful. This is the one thing that makes Lucy nervous because she has a past that she ran from that could come back to bite him. When what all happened was revealed, my heart broke for Lucy. And then I got angry that it happened to her. While Drake's reaction was to be expected, Lucy's wasn't. I didn't think she would handle things the way she did.

I instantly fell in love with Drake and Lucy the moment I opened this book.
Lucy is a school teacher and Drake happens to just stroll in her life when she least expects it. He come in for an interview with her class and they thought that would be the end of their meeting, but it would seem that fate has other plans. This book has everything I look for in a story and so much more. I laughed, cried and I am sure I probably stopped breathing a time or two.
Will Drake and Lucy be able to over come their past and make a future or does fate have other plans? You MUST read this book to find out, I can promise you won't be disappointed

Drake Prescott, Republican Senator from Virginia, and Lucy Washburn, a small town teacher, are the hero and heroine in this novel. They have a sweet meeting when Drake visits Lucy’s class to answer questions from her students. Feeling a mutual attraction, they see what love is capable of.
I really enjoyed this book. It was perfect for a political junkie and a romance book junkie, such as myself. The political aspect of it was small compared to what I thought it would be, although it does come through strong in the end.
I loved Lucy and Drake. When Lucy’s secret was outed, I cried for her. What she went through all alone was horrible, she eventually had her best friend, Mason to confide in, but Drake is who took the cake and really helped her move on with her life. We have to wait a majority of the book to discover what exactly her secret is, but the guessing game was half the fun for me. I felt so much from this book, anxiety, fear, sadness, laughter and eventually, happiness. I recommend this for someone looking for something more than a light read, but not a dark one.

I'm a little late to the party, but so glad I finally got a chance to read this book. Joanne Schwehm is one of my favorite authors and she has never disappointed me with her characters, her stories and the love I have for her gift as an author.

Incumbent is a tale of two individuals who are brought together by a mere chance. Once they set eyes on one another, everything they knew begins to change.

Drake is a U.S. Senator. A man with a vision to change so much for the better of the people. His caring ways and love for his family, his country and those closest to him shine through in everything he does.

Lucy is a school teacher. A woman who wants to give back and educate the youth to create brighter futures. Her giving heart is admired by those around her, yet she has a bit of a painful secret she'd rather not share with just anyone...for fear of the consequences.

These two are simply breathtaking. I loved their story, their struggles and the ways in which this author drew me to their emotions. Not only were the main characters well developed, every character involved in this story made me want to know more. I can't wait to read more of the Prescott Series.

Incumbent...the title alone would not have grabbed my attention had the cover not blown my mind ;) WOW!!! Then I opened the book and DAAAAAMN, Joanne Schwehm grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me clean through to the last page!! First and foremost, the writing in this story was crisp, clean, and beautiful. I could actually envision what was going on in each scene without being beaten over the head with small details. Second, Ms. Schwehm crafted characters that are unlike the cookie cutter characters we have come to see in every other stories. These are real people. They have jobs, real jobs, that they love. And when they (Drake and Lucy) meet... they form a relationship where they get to know each other. That said, Ms. Schwehm's pacing is perfect, the story unfolds beautifully and the chemistry between Drake and Lucy is electric.
I recommend this story to EVERYONE. I implore those of you who are romance lovers to grab a copy and get ready to fall in love.
