Nanee's Review of The Election Connection by Monica Tillery
Model Lily Ashton’s picture-perfect life isn’t as flawless as it seems. After losing her soldier husband six years ago, Lily’s carved a new life for herself by starting a nonprofit for war widows. There’s no room in her busy schedule, or her heart, for a new love—which makes her the perfect date at fundraisers and parties for her pal, Congressman Ford Richardson.
Ford is focused on winning his bid for re-election, and when his opponent pummels him in the polls because he’s not married, Ford’s advisors give him a choice: find a fiancée or prepare to lose the election. Lily agrees to play the part, and they both vow to separate the election from their emotions. As they work together to keep their secret safe, their not-quite engagement starts to feel much more real than either is ready to admit.
With Lily’s help, Ford may win the election, but can he win her heart?
I enjoy this author, she writes lighthearted, sweet and sexy reads that make you smile. This story is about a whirlwind romance between Lily and Ford. Lily's first husband died at war and although it was a very long time ago she still can't seem to move on so when she starts dating Congressman Ford Richardson it's the best of both worlds. having a nice companion and a light no serious emotions relationship. Ford is running for re-election and his take a easy relationship with Lily turns to a impromptu engagement and scandal. I love how these two lean on each other and help each other out but what I love most is the emotions and feelings that they begin to feel and the need for each other blooms. They are sexy together and I love how Lily holds her own with Ford's mother...too funny. I really enjoyed this story. very sweet and loving. 4 stars
