When DC Madam Faith Crawley receives a call from former client, Senator William Drummond, it’s the answer to her prayers. The money the dirty politician offers her to smear his rival Finn Billings will save Faith’s business, her lifestyle, and her girls.
Raised in the shadow of a political magnate, Finn Billings has the credentials to get the job done, but he lacks confidence and wonders if politics is truly the life he desires.
Using the façade of her front business, a PR firm, Faith turns Finn into a political powerhouse while obtaining the evidence Drummond needs to destroy Finn’s political chances. But Faith didn’t plan on falling in love with her mark.
Now she has the toughest decision ever—give the sleazy senator incriminating photos of Finn to save her business or give up everything for the sake of love.
An Interesting Redemption Romance Story
I’m not quite sure how to feel about this book. I haven’t read political romances before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But, after reading the synopsis, I was actually looking forward for some crazy drama, intrigue, suspense, and romance. The story did have those, but I struggled with this book quite a bit. The pacing was slow in the beginning and didn’t really captivate me as much. It was at times very aggravating because I couldn’t connect with Faith and wasn’t onboard with her hurting people to get what she wanted. But, I liked that she was fierce and a fighter. She was tough, resilient and will do anything to protect her company. In the end, she redeems herself and I liked her a little bit more for that.
While this wasn’t what I thought it would be, I liked that it was an emotional and realistic read. I also liked the writing style and thought it was effortless and believable. I also enjoyed the romance part and thought it was fun. Even though Finn wasn’t close to being the swoony male lead I was expecting, he was intriguing and likable. The supporting characters were interesting enough and I liked them. I also thought the overall plot was entertaining and enjoyable and the ending was great. I really liked how the story concluded and was happy for Faith.
The Full Girlfriend Experience was a fun and interesting read that had some nice twists. Although there were a few things that bothered me, I did end up liking the story. If you are into redemption stories with intrigue and romance, the I think you’ll enjoy reading this book.
I received a reader copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
There were three things I could not stand—cheap shoes, bad wine, and the man seated across the table from me.
William Drummond was staring at me like a halfstarved animal. Maybe his greedy gaze was due to my dress’s plunging neckline, but the man obviously had other things on his mind—complications that involved me. And like the pan-fried calamari appetizer slowly digesting in my belly, sharing company with the man who almost killed one of my girls did not sit well. Nonetheless, I had problems. I had to at least hear him out.
I lifted my empty champagne flute and motioned for a refill. Drummond obliged.
The bubbly was good and dry, one that cost a pretty penny, which the sockmuppet would probably write off and charge taxpayers. It was tempting to slug my drink down and ask for a third glass, but I refrained since I was dealing with someone less trustworthy than my drycleaners.
