"This book did not disappoint. The first book was scandalous, but this book puts a whole new meaning to the word scandalous. The number of twist and turns had my head going crazy, and the cliffhanger had me ready to jump off in search of book 3 to see how the first lady is going to continue to handle business."
~Brianna M.
