#MBreview “For the Record” series by K.A. Linde

on the recordSynopsis: Liz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.

Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.

Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?

Syoff the recordnopsis:

For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…

The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.

Modern Belle’s Review:

3✈for On the Record: I didn’t love this book as much. I felt like I had to wait too long to see Liz and Brady. Having waited to read the series, I knew who Liz ended up with, so a good portion of the book left me disengaged. I lived for the Brady and Liz moments. I also didn’t like how Hayden was portrayed. He was a such a good guy, and he is redeemed eventually, but it was hard to watch. The pay-off of waiting was ultimately worth it.

 Synofor the recordpsis:

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?

Modern Belle’s Review:

4 ✈for For the Record: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was wonderful to see this couple come together and take on the challenges of the political field. Liz grew and become a character to respect. She matured and became an independent woman that refused to be hidden in the famous shadow of Brady. They do encounter several obstacles, but this only serves to show the strength and commitment of their relationship. The epilogue sealed the deal for me, and I hope we get to see Brady and Liz again in Clay’s book.

4.5 ✈for For the Record series: So where did the .5 ✈come from? The extra 1/2 point is for the writing style. While there are parts I felt like could have been condensed, the writing was flawless and well done. I have truly enjoyed everything I have read by this author, and I can’t wait for Struck from the record.
