Synopsis: For political reporter Liz Dougherty, election day—a day of looking toward the future and saying goodbye to the past—seems like a fitting time to start a new relationship. But feelings for her former flame still linger…
The sexy second book in bestselling author K.A. Linde’s Record series decides whether it’s better to pick up the pieces and move on…or to pick up right where you left off.
My review: I enjoyed this one a lot. I still don’t think much of Liz’s choice in boyfriend especially now.
This one had a really hard-hitting scene in it for me, only brief but still hard-hitting. Not only did I not like the scene I also didn’t like the denial from Liz about it when telling Brady. What Hayden did was rape. There is no way to sugar coat it at all. I did not like that scene and was tempted to stop reading the book, however, if I had stopped I wouldn’t have found the bits I like the most.
Liz after feeling guilty for 2 years decides to tell her best friend and Hayden. Hayden freaks out, basically rapes his girlfriend then proceeds to ruin her life and his own in the process. Well done.
I thought this was fantastic: “You know, baby,” he whispered. “I’ve been angry at you for so long that I just don’t think I have it in me anymore. It takes too much effort. Loving you takes so much less effort, and it means I get to see that smile.” Liz’s mouth dropped open in shock. had he.. had he just told her he loved her? He laughed softly and then kissed her button nose. “Happy Valentine’s Day, baby.”
Surprise! They’re together again!
Amazing. I love when the male character in a book finally realises that he loves the female, it is the way they figure it out – it can take them ages and they may not get it until the very end but when they do? I like their character a whole lot more.
Liz had a go at Hayden when she was breaking up with him after he screwed up pretty badly. “But what?” she snapped. “You lost your balls and had to go looking for them all weekend?” Go Liz! Kick his butt!
I found this to be yet another well written novel and I enjoyed it a lot. The best part is where Brady and Liz get together and he announces it in the nicest but weirdest way possible.
“Yes, Miss Hollingsworth, I’ll make a comment. Liz Dougherty is Sandy Carmichael. We were in a private relationship two summers ago, and we’re in a public one now.”
Cue the end of book 2.
I enjoyed On the Record (Record #2) and I’ve already moved on to the final novel in this series so far.
My rating: 4 stars
