Claiming Power #Review

Claiming Power (Friends & Lovers Series Book 3)

A buttoned-up politician.
An ambitious rebel.
The hard choice between power and love.

Connor Barret has built a life based on doing everything right. He’s smart, honest, and completely buttoned up. Continuing his family’s political legacy is a no-brainer. Next stop... US Senate.

Jenna King likes her men as wild as she is. Clean shaves and navy suits hold no appeal. When she ends up working on Connor’s campaign, it’s easy to keep it strictly professional. 

The couple works hand-in-hand without crossing any lines. Until she gets a glimpse of the man underneath all those crisp, white shirts. And Connor urges her to let her hair down.

If you’re looking for smart, sexy characters in a layered, emotionally-gripping story, Claiming Power will grab a hold of you. 

This steamy, standalone contemporary romance has no cliffhanger but includes characters you will meet throughout the series.

Claiming Power is a political campaign story. Connor is the man for the job. Jenna is the assistant he needs to make him stand out. She tells him straight and dresses him smart. The pair has intertwined history and her place in his campaign is inevitable. 

Jenna needs to get out of town. Her brother's life is closely suited with Connors. She goes to one of his campaign speeches in the hope of finding a free ride out of town, but Connor sees more than she's offering. He wants her honest opinion at his table. Jenna's attracted to her boss but doesn't want to mess things up. 

Connor's future is mapped out for him. He already knows what he has to do. He needs to be a strong leader and prove he's the man for the job. Being at the head of the table comes with a price. He wants a leading lady but the girl he has his heart set on isn't a pushover. To win her heart he's going to have to prove he's more than a people's man. 

This is my first political romance and it reminded me a little of Two weeks notice. The relationship makes sense and the author tried to give it passion. The story follows the jobs and the campaign. There are some sexy scenes and a good storyline. I felt at times the book could have been longer in sections. Jenna's character starts off with a sassy attitude but soon joins Connors campaign. Connor decides he wants Jenna and just goes for it. I felt some chapters would be enhanced with a little something more. I liked the romance but it didn't have me hooked. Connors career was the main focus of my attention. 

This is a standalone story but I think some of the characters are from other books (I read this fine as a standalone). This is something different for me and was an enjoyable quick read. 4 stars out of 5.
