ARC Review: Flirting with Scandal (Capital Confessions #1) by Chanel Cleeton

The author of I See London sets her sights on Washington, D. C., with a sexy new series about three sisters, the secrets they keep, and a powerful blog with a knack for exposing scandals...

Jackie Gardner knows all about dirty little secrets. The illegitimate daughter of one of the most influential senators in Washington, D.C., she grew up surrounded by the scandals and shadows of politics. Now that she's landed an internship with a powerful political consulting firm, she's determined to launch her career and take this city by storm.

William Andrew Clayton was born for politics. He knows the drill: work hard, play discreetly, and at all costs, avoid scandal. At twenty-six, his campaign for the Virginia State Senate is the first step to cementing his future. It's time for him to settle down, to find the perfect political spouse. He needs a Jackie Kennedy, not a Marilyn... 

When Jackie meets Will in the bar of the Hay-Adams Hotel, sparks fly. But the last thing Will needs is to be caught in a compromising position, and an affair with a political candidate could cost Jackie her career. When what began as one steamy night, becomes a passion neither one of them can walk way from, they must decide if what they have is really love, or just another dirty little secret...

Book releases on May 19, 2015. Pre-order on Amazon!


5 Scandalous Stars!

This book has my vote for a great start in a new series! Flirting With Scandal is exactly what the title is--it's a hot political mess waiting to happen. And it did!

Jackie Gardner is a young, smart, savvy and beautiful young woman trying to make it in a male-dominant political world. She's driven to land a prestigious career at a well-known consulting firm and determined to make it own her own.  Jackie grew up in this life, knowing all the dirty little tidbits that the D.C. holds. And she herself is a dirty little secret, that she is determined to keep from the world. 

Will Clayton is a hot, young, upcoming politician getting ready to run for the Virginia Senate. He's a great book boyfriend--Will is romantic and honest (for a politician), but has a dirty, hot mouth! I live in the Virginia and work in D.C., so Will would get my vote!

Jackie ends up working on Will's campaign after unexpectedly meeting beforehand. The attraction between these two is off the chart. They have great chemistry throughout this book. BUT...working for Will and having her own dirty secrets can expose the two of them and ruin their lives. Even with everything on the line, Will and Jackie can't seem to stop the attraction. They are willing to take the risks and face the consequences of their actions. 

Flirting with Scandal is a scandalous, sexy and is full of political drama. I can't wait for more in this series with other characters. Yes, it's a HEA and doesn't end with a cliffhanger.
