Politics, puppy dogs, and passion, oh my!
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.
If you are looking for a sweet, fun but not a deep thinking or feeling book. One that you can just read with out investing too much time or energy in, than this is it.
Taking three words from the blurb, No big deal. And sometimes we all need those books. I know I do.
We’ve got the Senator, a closet gay man, and the guy who inadvertently ends up in a photo that sends both of them on a path neither one excepted.
Samuel, is the fun loving character, that is everyone’s, loves animals and small children. On the side of the homeless and well, has not done anything wrong. Gary, is a student that is about to start Vet school, seems kinda shy and naive about the world in general.
Together they start this fake courtship, that of course turns into a real one. And we get the pleasure of watching them slip and slid through this relationship behind closed doors as well as in front of the public eye. And what good love wouldn’t be complete with out our villain. And this one does set a good baseline.
Overall this story is pretty predictably, but fun to read and had me sighing, laughing, and left me with an overall happy feeling at the end.
The Senator’s Secret by KC Wells is a sweet contemporary romance. It’s election season for Senator Samuel Dalton and his political opponent is determined to play dirty. An innocent picture has the potential to turn Sam’s campaign upside down until Sam’s team, spins it in a new light. Now, he must convince a near-stranger, Gary, to pretend to be his fiancé.
Wells did a fantastic job with The Senator’s Secret. I loved these characters. Sam and Gary are absolutely adorable together. Readers knew pretty quickly that the idea of the “fake engagement” would lead to so much more, but the pay was worth it! Though the plot did stretch believability a bit too far at times, the connection between the men more than made up for it.
I would recommend The Senator’s Secret to anyone who likes sweet romances with very little angst that allow you to escape reality for a while. KC Wells has earned a devoted fan!
