bookworm review: off the record by k.a. lindle

Off The Record by K. A. Lindle Teaser
I randomly stumbled across Off the Record once I signed-up for Kindle Unlimited and was so glad that I found it. Just wow! I became a new fan of K.A. Lindle instantly. She's awesome! 

This book was about the love story between Liz Dougherty, a journalist at UNC, and Brady Maxell, the local politician with his eyes set on becoming the next House of Representative from the Fourth District of North Carolina.  Could they find love? Could their love endure the strains of running a highly publicized campaign? Not if his campaign staff have their way. This book was a real page turner. I just had to know what was to become of their clandestine love affair. 

Liz: I commend her. I don't think I could have been someone's secret. That was a lot of pressure to keep a secret from everyone around you. 

Brady: I wanted him to grow a pair. Either you wanted to be with Liz or you didn't. That flip flopping mess was for the birds.  

Damn. I just really wanted Liz and Brady to get it together.  

My ratings: 5 stars

Time it took to read: 1 month only because I was reading other books for the blog. This was a Kanae pick. 

Yes, I would recommend it especially if you ever wondered what a secret romance would be like with a politician. BTW...this book was the first book in The Record Series and ended with Liz making an important decision. I can't wait to read On the Record, the second book in this series.

You can buy this book on Amazon, and it's on Kindle Unlimited.

Once upon a time, a good girl who wanted to be naughty, met a naughty boy who wanted to be good...

Beth Pierce, is the Director of Fundraising for her older brother's new legal non-profit. She spends her weekends fighting off lecherous men at charity galas and her weekdays trying to hide her attraction for a certain sexy young attorney in her office.

When Mark is assigned to escort Beth to those weekend galas, they both quickly realize that things could get very interesting. Will Beth be as naughty as she would like to be?

the guide to a casual weekend

I can't believe that November is almost over. On top of that, I can't believe that temperatures were in the 20s this week, and that's not factoring in the windchill.  Translation = The hawk is back, and I hate it. The only good thing about this time of year is that I now have the perfect excuse to lounge around the house, drink hot chocolate, and read books all day. And if I must leave the house, it's a casual chic look for me. It's too cold for anything else.

For Indoor Fun:
1. Grad a book to read. My recommendation The Record Series by K.A. Lindle and The Intern Series by Brooke Cumberland. Both are available on Kindle Unlimited.
2. Find your most comfortable pair of PJs and lounge around. Try a set from PJ Luxe or Eberjay.
3. Enjoy a nice cup of hot cocoa in your favorite mug. I have two: my Kate Spade mug and my floral Target mug. BTW....I love Land O'Lakes, Ghirardelli,and Starbucks, but if you don't have milk, Swiss Miss or Nestle will do.

For Outdoor Fun:
1. Throw on a pair of casual chic sweatpants like these from Monrow and pair it with your favorite sweatshirt and sneakers.  I swear H&M has the cutest sweatshirts, and Everlane has the softest. 
2. Stop by Starbucks and get a Tuxedo Hot Chocolate. *hot chocolate is a must on any given cold day
3. Head over to the show and see Beyond the Lights or Mockingjay Part 1.
