Review: Yours in Scandal by Lauren Layne

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Steam Level: 🔥🔥

New York City’s youngest mayor, Robert Davenport has just been named Citizen magazine’s Man of the Year. This gives him the push he needs to think seriously about a bid for the governor’s seat. When he finds out the incumbent’s flawless reputation is a hoax and his estranged daughter is hiding in plain sight, he hunts her down and hires her as an event planner to get the dirt on his future opponent. But Addie knocks him on his ass and makes him second guess everything he thought he ever wanted.

This one was just okay for me. It’s odd because I really love political romances (a rare sub genre, I know) and I really enjoyed this story but I just don’t think it was executed particularly well here. The first half was SLOW. Like, literally nothing happened. It definitely got more entertaining during the second half, but by that time I sort of lost interest. I really liked Robert for the most part but felt like if his character was more developed I really would’ve loved him. And while I respected Addie, I never really connected with her. I really wanted to love this one, but it just didn’t do it for me. Too much talk, not enough action and I felt like there were lots of less significant parts of the story that took up way too much time.

Thanks to Netgalley & Montlake Romance for the free e-book in exchange for my honest review. Yours in Scandal is out 3/10/20!
