Deeply Emotional Writing Highlights the Complexities of Human Relationships
Leta Breckenridge is forced to drop out of college to care for her dementia-ridden mother. After learning a severely delinquent account may force her mother into a less desirable facility, Leta steps out of her comfort zone and lands a high-paying job at an Austin public relations firm. But her dream job turns into a nightmare when she learns the firm is a front for a political opposition machine–and that the research she’s been collecting will be used against her new love interest, Nathan Emerson.
Nathan is a rising political star being pressured to run a bid to unseat the current governor of Texas. He’s already in a relationship with a woman much better suited to be a politician’s wife, but he’s never met anyone like Leta. Could this feisty, challenging woman hold the key to his heart?
Hey guys and gals! I am back! Yeah, I have been gone for the past week, but that was because I was busy learning about writing better at a–you guessed it– writing camp!!
So, can you tell a difference in my writing?!
When I read the synopsis of this book, I was super excited. I mean, a political star, a dream job, and a challenging women–what could be better than that? Seriously, I hit “Request” right away. But, I am very, very sorry to say that this book didn’t become as exciting as I thought it would be.
There wasn’t exactly a climax, a “I can’t believe this is happening” moment. Sure, Nathan and Leta did…Woops! I can’t let that secret out! But, there was nothing that made me sit on the edge of my seat.
Anyway, I didn’t exactly get what was going on. It seemed like the same thing was happening over and over. It may be just me who thinks that way; so, I am going to give it the benefit of the doubt.
Unfortunately, I have to give this book 2 stars. What Matters Most just didn’t hit me right.
