Jamie McAlister has resigned herself to the fact that in this job market, her painfully expensive degree might only get her a position at Starbucks, when she suddenly lands a prestigious internship at the White House. Although she doesn't hit it off with the other interns--lockjaws who come from so much money that ten weeks without a paycheck doesn't faze them--she is eager to work hard and make the best of the opportunity while it lasts. An unexpected encounter late one evening with the charismatic President Gregory Rutland seems like just a fleeting flirtation, but when he orchestrates clandestine meetings and late-night phone calls, their relationship quickly escalates. Jamie knows what she is doing is wrong: he s married, he has kids, he's the President. Yet each time she tries to extricate herself, Greg pulls her back in

Nothing original about this story....just pick up a newspaper in the Clinton's all a veiled attempt at Monica Lewinsky's story...Disappointing since they're other novels where much better. Skip it...and read some other book.

A good story but not a lot of depth.

This is a thinly veiled story on Monica Lewinsky and the events that happened in the mid-1990's when Lewinsky, a young intern at the time, had an affair with then US president Bill Clinton. These two writers border on plagirism and this is no page turner (like they adverstise on the cover), rather, it's a sad attempt to cash in on someone else's trauma and life altering mistakes. However, what it does showcase is how willingly some of our youth delve into these affairs without ever thinking it through and for that reason, I'd recommend it to college students who will inevitably fall in love with a mentor, professor or internship manager.
