Book Blurb:

My husband and I know how to fight. We perfected the art when running against each other for Congress. But that fighting revealed a passion for each other that we couldn’t deny. Battle lines were erased as enemies became lovers. But now we’re in the fight of our lives – we’re battling a smear campaign as he runs for governor. And again, we find ourselves drawn to do what we do best. I won’t be controlled, even by the man who owns my heart. But as tensions escalate to a boiling point, I discover there is one place I like checking my defiance – the bedroom. As Jude takes his dominance over me to a new level, I discover that submission can bring me to places I’ve ever known.

Jude & Reagan
5 Stars

Who knew there was more to these exquisite characters? Who knew that a run for the Governor’s office would be so demanding? Chelle and Brenda, that’s who!! This continuation of Jude and Ray’s life is stressful and exhilarating all at the same time. It was fun to revisit them and see where life has taken them and will be taking them.

Jude is still the brooding alpha Marine, only this time he’s running for Governor. Trying to win the election and keep his marriage in tact are like trying to sew two pieces of Jell-O together. Virtually impossible! He knows what to do, but not how to do it. Now we sit back and wait!

Reagan is seeing things a little bit different now that she’s not running for any seat. She’s a “working girl,” but still finds time for her handsome hubs, that is until he assumes she’ll put his career ahead of hers. Never assume!

Tempers flares, feelings get hurt, and scandals are a plenty. This story was fun and witty yet intense and passionate. These characters fit together well, but face some huge hurdles along the way. It was a quick read, but packed with an excellent storyline. The pacing is perfect, the writing style flawless, and the tension thick. I absolutely enjoyed my time back with Jude and Ray.
