Review of RED, WHITE & SCREWED by Holly Bush and a giveaway


Political strategist Glenda Nelson is having a meltdown. Her handpicked, very married Congressional candidate was just caught climbing out of the window of the Sleepytown Motel, and her philandering ex-husband seems to have the most to gain from the colossal scandal that follows. As Glenda attempts to salvage the campaign in a hotly contested race, conservative and liberal pundits pounce on the story to further their own agendas.

Glenda’s love life is nonexistent to say the least, that is, until she meets handsome artist Chris Goodrich. Chris’s easy-going, carefree outlook on life couldn’t be more different than the 90-mph crazy train that is Glenda’s, but the more time she spends with him, the more she craves his calming presence, his sexy smile, and his steamy embraces. Is Chris worth taking a chance on?

Between the pressure of full-blown spin control mode, rapidly declining job security, refereeing two teenagers, caring for aging parents, and spending hours on her therapist’s couch trying to get past her ex’s crushing betrayal, Glenda finds love and makes the long trek back to happy.

My Thoughts:

This was a great deviation from my usual reads. :-) I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I liked it. I am not a fan of politics in general. Imagine my surprise when I  really got engaged in this book.

Glenda was a great character. She was middle-aged instead of the usual 20 something characters that I so often read about. She also had morals, wit, and teen aged children that were a tad bizarre. She was easy to like.

She had been married to a toad, a lying, cheating, political toad who couldn't keep it in his pants and gave her nothing but her children, a self doubt, and a distrust of men.

She recently backed another man for a political race and then poop hit the fan when they found him leaving a hotel window after being with someone who wasn't his wife. When Glenda found out that it had been happening for twelve years she was beside herself wondering how she could have missed the signs. 

There was so much humor in this political romance that I really enjoyed myself. I think (for me) it was the humor that kept me turning the pages. It was fun to read when it could have easily been weighted down. Holly Bush is talented and I am happy that I found her!

I received an ecopy of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it more than I even thought possible! If you haven't tried political romance, this is a great book to start with. take it from me!
