    2. This is kind of like the story I imagined for Sam Seabourne and the high class call girl in The West Wing TV series.So, when married potential presidential candidate Jason Melville is found in a hotel room with a high class Washington escort and leaked to the press, his political adviser Derek Ambrose can only see one way out of the mess, pretend the call girl is his secret girlfriend And the fact that Derek finds her beautiful and fascinating is coincidental.London Sharpe ran away from her moth [...]

    3. After reading Prince of the Press, a Powerplay Novella, there was a few chapters of this one at the end and wow, I was hooked and had to continue reading it And I am so glad I finished it.Derek Ambrose is the man you want if you are ever planning to run for any political office He is a leader, not a follower and he will lead you to the top if you can stay out of trouble.London Sharpe is a professional escort and she only has high profile clients Keeping secrets is a big part of her life and her [...]

    6. This is like a cross between Scandal and House of Cards with a lot of romance and angst It is so good that it draws you right into the book and keeps you on the hook until the end And I love how the President is a WOMAN in this novel London is a professional escort at night but by day she is a socialist but all that came to an end when somebody blew her nighttime activities up and on blast and told everyone who she was All because her activities at night were with a possible Senator in running a [...]

    7. A good fast paced read Nice mix of story line, relationships sex Perfect for the beach Could ve been longer Really enjoyed it.

    8. I liked it The last 3 chapters kind of zipped through the ending at a lightening pace, but it was a nice HEA somehow taking some of the cynicism out of Washington politics This was a sweet, hooker with a heart of gold meets political stragetist idealist saviour hero alpha Somehow they both come across as wholesome in their own ways There were some good steamy scenes and no too much angst I just found out there was a novella prequel involving Marcus I like the main Power Players enough that I wil [...]

    9. The Kingmaker A Powerplay NovelThis is a new author for me and I m glad that I found her I enjoyed reading this novel and can t wait to read the rest of them.

    12. Well worth the read Politics, sex scandals and some intrigue made me get this book but I was hooked on the characters almost immediately and couldn t put it down A great story Going to buy another of the series

    13. WowWow just about sums it up.I don t usually read books about politics so I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this book.Derek and London was a very unique couple and it worked for me.I can t say enough about this book,and how I will be reading of this author s work.Great job Selena

    14. If strong language and graphic sex don t deter you, then read this unconventional contemporary romance Set in Washington DC s powerful political arena, we met the main characters in chapter 1, London Sharpe and Derek Ambrose Derek was a wealthy, successful campaign consultant who skillfully managed rising stars in the political arena He sought power but liked being in the background He enjoyed shaping his political candidates with his own agenda London was a professional escort a high class call [...]

    15. What A Great Read I ll be honest I almost didn t read this book because of its name But like I always do I read the reviews Man I m glad I did This is a great story and I loved the characters I recommend it to all I can t remember reading Selena before but I promise I will read of her in my favorite past time Reading

    16. Extremely originalThis story was really good I had to finish it I loved how well written this was And have a dirty seedy, yet somehow wholesome Washington This was a really great read.

    17. A great read.Loved all the twist and turns to this story It is definitely a keep you guessing type of plot and trying to figure out who done And on top of a fantastic love story.

    18. Really enjoyed it very hard to put down I read it in a day and a half Loved Derek a confident, cocky powerful man Alpha without exceeding in over protection I agree with some of the comments that he could deserve another type of woman, someone close to his circle But regardless of that it was a a very enjoyable read with nice twists and turns and nothing overly exaggerated in the plot The sex scenes are tastefully written especially with the issues she has, the way he handles her is beautiful.

    19. Another of Selena s Powerplay series This is Derek s story As his professional life falls apart he also deals with serious personal issues including trying to protect London who seems to be at the center of his professional turmoil Each book in this series leaves you wanting to read of the groups stories as you can see how each man s story interacts with the others Well worth getting the whole series

    20. 3.5 4 StarsHmmmm, not sure how I am feeling about this one Did I like it yes, did I like it a lot, yes and no, did I love it, unfortunately, no OK, so that sums up my feelings in a nutshell.What I liked I LOVED DerekI mean really and truly loved him Now, for me, his part, his character throughout, I loved, YET, I didn t get why he ended up falling so hard and fast for someone like London Yeah, I am all over the place I felt like he deserved better and I mean that in the sense, everything he was [...]

    21. I am at a point where if I am going to read a romance novel, I want one with a little grit and a substantial plot The Kingmaker nicely fits the bit since it is about the background people whose job it is to get candidates elected to political office So, what would the world be like if we have a conglomerate of people i.e lawyers, political strategists, private investigator etc who operate with a true moral compass They find a candidate that they feel represent their core values and then launch [...]

    22. While this isn t the first Selena Laurence book I ve read, it is the first I ve read in this series I picked it up for free on and having loved her other series, I thought I d give it a go while I have a break in my ARC pile.For the most part, I enjoyed The Kingmaker I liked the political element, but also the fact that Derek was the campaign strategist, not the candidate It made this story a bit different from the usual political romances I read where the leading male is running for the preside [...]

    23. The Kingmaker is the second book in the Powerplay series and it reminds me of one of my favorite programmes Scandal I really enjoyed this book because it is a great mix of both politics and romance and I enjoy watching powerful men fall in love Dereks s character was a powerful alpha male who sticks to his beliefs and is a true born leader and I loved that he could be ruthless in power games, but he was equally sweet and romantic with the woman he loved London s character was strong and independ [...]

    24. Loved it I really enjoy reading books based on my hometown of our Nation s Capital and political twists, since in reality politics is full of twists This was my first book by Selena Laurence and needless to say I enjoyed it so much I went on to read the rest of the books in the series.Laurence brought all of the characters in the book to life and her descriptive writing was spot on in regards to the life of citizen living in D.C An excellent story of finding ones way in the turmoil of living in [...]

    25. Ugh maybe 1.5 starsI struggled to finish this one The story line is unusual An escort to the elite who starts dating a political consultant to cover for a candidate.She struggles to have sex with him Hmmm They supposedly fall in love You don t see it happen but are told they love each other There is no build up just boom there it is.It really is an eye rolling story I will not read any of the series.
