When his Republican opponent outs him with a photo in a Facebook post, Senator Samuel Dalton doesn’t have many options open to him. It doesn’t matter that the photo is totally innocent. He has no choice but to come clean… until his staff suggest putting a spin on it that leaves Sam reeling.
Sure, he’ll end up with a lot of sympathy, not to mention the possibility of more voters from the LGBT community, but it still seems a pretty drastic solution.
Now all they have to do is persuade Gary, the other man in the photo, to play along. It sounds so easy: convince the constituents of North Carolina that he and Sam are engaged.
No big deal, except for the fact that they’ve only just met….
The Senator’s Secret is overly sweet. I’m a K.C. Wells’s fan but this is a departure from her usual stories. She always has likable characters, but in this case, Sam and Gary won the contest. Their story starts strong, just like their relationship. Even when they were playing along, it was nice to see their friendship blossoming. They are a great couple.
It was the type of story we are used to by now as part of this series. The troupe was well-incorporated in the story and the book moved forward nicely. The story has a bit of UST and a good transition into “making love.” I like the way Gary believes in the Senator and everything he does to help the campaign.
Overall, it was a fun, easy going story; perfect for a quiet afternoon. Low angst, cute plot twists, and lovely MCs. It’s the type of story I wish to see in real life. We are in the election season after all. Well, at least here in the States. Definitely, a nice choice if your want to forget about the current presidential campaign, but still have a little political flavor.
John Solo did an amazing job with the narration. For some reason, I couldn’t stop thinking about Senator John Edwards every time I heard Senator Dalton talking. It has to be the whole southern gentleman thing. The transitions between the characters were flawless and worked well with the author’s style.
The cover by Bree Archer for the audiobook is an adaptation from the e-book cover. It fits the current style for the Dreamspun Desires series, and I loved the model on the cover. The dog and the rest of the background are a plus.
