With Congressman Brady Maxwell up for reelection and journalist Liz Dougherty about to graduate into a promising career, the ambitious couple's future is brighter than ever. They share a passion for their work...and for each other. But when Brady holds a press conference to officially introduce Liz as his girlfriend, reporters hungry for a scandal bombard her. Now, her every move is under a vicious magnifying glass, and her life feels like it's falling apart.
On the road to reelection, the passionate bond between the congressman and the journalist gets tested at every stop. Threatened by shameless media sensationalism and jealous exes, Brady and Liz now have to learn to trust each other despite what they read in the papers.
In the finale to USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde's sexy Record trilogy, Liz and Brady may be setting off fireworks along the campaign trail, but can their love transcend politics as usual?
This was a very satisfying ending for a couple that captivated my heart.
Things that made me smile:
- Seeing Liz 'stand up' and be noticed. I really felt Liz came into her won in this one. She didn't give up her dreams, they simply readjusted. She showed maturity and intelligence - she proved she could be an equal partner with Brady in their personal and political lives.
- Brady never makes promises he can't keep so seeing his commitment and dedication in both areas of his life was thrilling. He proved he was in it for the long haul.
- I enjoyed the campaigning - seeing Liz be a part of it this time cast things in a whole new light. And I liked seeing how they worked together as a couple.
- Clay - for all his bluster, he's a good guy. I think I always knew it but it was nice to have it confirmed.
- I enjoyed that Linde kept the supporting cast together. Getting glimpses of Justin and Massey, and spending time with Chris, Clay, and Savannah added a certain depth to the story.
Things that made me frown:
- Hayden - even though I suppose he redeemed himself I still felt like there was something off with him.
- Calleigh - her revenge plot seemed over-the-top. Of course, I'm not in politics, so maybe it's not.
Overall, I loved how Linde tied up everything for Brady and Liz.
