When Skye fails to find alternative treatment in time, she vows to end the senator’s political career.
Curious about the woman behind the scathing articles on his best friend, Mark Dutton pursues Skye. Dating Mark gives her access to Hastings’s life and secrets that would launch Skye’s career and satisfy her need for retribution… Only she hadn’t counted on falling in love.

I really enjoyed this book! Now this is going to be a short review because I don’t want to give anything away! Reporter Skylar Kendall has had a life full of hurt and disappointment; now she avoids any involvement to keep her heart safe but somehow her little nice has wormed her way into Skylar’s heart! Her niece becomes gravely ill and there is only one treatment that might work but Senator Edward Hastings is using his office to make sure that the treatment is not available because the treatment is so unconventional. Now because of that reason she decide to ruin Hasting’s career! As she starts a personal campaign to ruin his career she unexpectedly meets and falls for the senator’s close friend Mark, which makes her question her actions and choices.
Reading this book showed me that not everything is black and white and seeing things from different perspectives opens my mind to the way they think.Even though I might not agree whit there choices i still see where this person is coming from!
