Red Blooded by Caitlin Sinead

8:30 pm 0 Comments A+ a-


Instead of eating ramen and meeting frat guys like most college freshmen, Peyton Arthur is on the campaign trail. Traveling with her mother, the Democratic pick for vice president, she's ordering room service, sneaking glances at cute campaign intern Dylan and deflecting interview questions about the tragic loss of her father. But when a reporter questions her paternity, her world goes into a tailspin.
Dylan left Yale and joined the campaign to make a difference, not keep tabs on some girl. But with the paternity scandal blowing up and Peyton asking questions, he's been tasked to watch her every move. As he gets to know the real Peyton, he finds it harder and harder to keep a professional distance.
When the media demands a story, Peyton and Dylan give them one—a fake relationship. As they work together to investigate the rumors about her real father and Peyton gets closer to learning the truth, she's also getting closer to Dylan. And suddenly, it's not just her past on the line anymore. It's her heart.

Hey! Here's my review.

This is the second book I have read by Caitlin Sinead. I don't usually go for books about US politics as it's something I'm not familiar with or interested in, but I liked the author's style and wanted to check this one out too.

I would hate to have been in Peyton's situation, in the limelight, stalked by paparazzi and needing to think twice before opening your mouth. Dylan isn't my new book boyfriend, I couldn't take all his political pillow talk for the rest of my life. But I still loved them. I loved the tension between them and I got caught up in their story.

The excerpts from her father's book at the start of each chapter, often got me a bit choked up.

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
