Book Review: For the Record (Record #3) By K.A. Linde

For the Record (Record, #3)

Publication date: November 18th, 2014.

Format: Kindle, 352 pages

Synopsis: With Congressman Brady Maxwell up for reelection and journalist Liz Dougherty about to graduate into a promising career, the ambitious couple’s future is brighter than ever. They share a passion for their work…and for each other. But when Brady holds a press conference to officially introduce Liz as his girlfriend, reporters hungry for a scandal bombard her. Now, her every move is under a vicious magnifying glass, and her life feels like it’s falling apart.

On the road to reelection, the passionate bond between the congressman and the journalist gets tested at every stop. Threatened by shameless media sensationalism and jealous exes, Brady and Liz now have to learn to trust each other despite what they read in the papers.

In the finale to USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde’s sexy Record trilogy, Liz and Brady may be setting off fireworks along the campaign trail, but can their love transcend politics as usual?

My review: It took me approximately 4.5 hours to read the final book in this series and what a book!

Originally, I wasn’t 100% with Liz and Hayden, my bias being that she’d fallen in love with Brady, left him so he could pursue his career without causing him any trouble and that Hayden gave me the wiggins.  However, despite the ups and downs from the previous book I gave the third and final a go because I wanted to know what happened.

That’s good writing.

The second book On the Record ended on a cliffhanger that made me want to scream and I promptly rushed to start For the Record and I’m glad I did.

The prose was well written, the plot on point and the dialogue flowed well between all the characters.  I even liked Heather at the end of this one when I didn’t like her character before – she was too hard on Liz when all she was trying to do was help.

My favourite quotes/passages are as follows:

“Tonight when I have you all alone, I’m going to remind you exactly what happened the night you brought a Senator to his knees.”

“And that night you said that the most romantic thing was sitting in an open field looking up at the stars.” He gestured around him.  “I give you the stars. I already have mine.”

“They say the measure of a man is what he does with his power.  I’ve come to find that I have no power without you.  So, I want to share it with you for the rest of my days.”

“The lowest lows bring the highest highs. And when you find someone who brings you both, that doesn’t mean you should walk away; it means you have something special.” 

I really enjoyed the Record series and I look forward to the short stories that K.A. Linde will be releasing.
