I admit, I'm dreading the first negative review. I know it's the nature of the beast, but still. When you put so much time and energy into something, it's hard to think that not everyone will love it as much as you.
Anyway, here is the blurb:
Kristen Meadows has faithfully served political strategist Jason Rosenberg for over four years. As his personal assistant, her duties range anywhere from coffee and doughnut runs to arranging meetings on Capitol Hill. She has been everything from his last-minute date to his drinking buddy, and while they make an effort to keep no secrets, there is one thing Kris knows she can never share with Jay.
The fact that she's in love with him.
Jay has a problem. Not many people can balance personal lives and professional politics successfully, and his mother has taken notice. If that wasn't bad enough, the crafty Edith Rosenberg has had an eye on a potential daughter-in-law for a number of years. Granted, Jay can't say he's never considered a relationship with Kris...but given the nature of the business, he knows pursuing anything would not only threaten their friendship, but potentially end his career.
Edith Rosenberg wants grandchildren before she dies, and Jay's snail's pace isn't helping matters. After coercing her son and Kris to join her for a relaxing southern retreat in Natchez, Mississippi, she attempts to speed up the road to matrimony by finagling them into one room with a single bed.
Four years of tension are about to come to a head.
