Présentation de l'éditeur


When is a chance meeting not by chance? Maybe when you hide who you are.

The night before Lily Robles announces she’s running for Congress, she meets a handsome stranger at a coffee shop. Their chemistry is strong, and not wanting to scare him off, she avoids telling him she’s a local politician. She doesn't want the night to end—until she realizes he’s one of her opponents in the primary.

Jack Bengston can’t place where he’s seen Lily’s pretty face. He's taken with her, and he's sure the feeling is mutual—until she leaves him hanging and without her number.

When Jack and Lily meet again as candidates, California State Senator John Bengston and Sonoma County Supervisor Ursula Robles, they find an awkward romantic encounter is no way to kick-off a campaign, but how do you stop an attraction once it starts? There are times when politicians want to put their identities aside.

Biographie de l'auteur

Even before she graduated from law school, Mary knew she wasn't cut out to be a real lawyer. Drawn to politics, she's spent her career as an organizer, lobbyist, and nonprofit executive. Nothing piques her interest more than a good political scandal or romance, and when she stumbled upon writing, she put the two together. A born Midwesterner, naturalized Texan, and transient resident of Washington, D.C., Mary now lives in Northern California with her two daughters and real lawyer husband.

HASH(0x9523f828) étoiles sur 5 SEXY, SMART MUST READ ROMANCE 12 mars 2013

Truly enjoyed reading this political romance. When the main characters, Jack and Lily, meet for the first time, the attraction between them is undeniable. But they are faced with a dilemna as both are running for the same Congressional office in the Democratic primary making them opponents. A political nightmare!
They are rivals who have to make a decision. Should they deny their feelings for each other and walk away from what could be a good thing? Or should they give into what has drawn them together and see where fate might take them?
Read the story to see how the author unravels their decisions. She does a wonderful job of keeping you turning the page for more... Well done and Five stars!!

More Than Rivals by Mary Whitney was a quick, lighthearted read that I think for the most part readers will enjoy. The synopsis is what first drew me to this story. It sounded like a fun read. I found Whitney's characters likeable and witty at times, but overall I felt like the spark in the story was missing.

As I was reading through the interactions between Jack and Lily I found myself drawn out of the story. I saw the chemistry between them written out on the page, but I didn't really feel it. I did enjoy getting to know each individual character, and their stories, and while I didn't find myself swooning over the romance between Jack and Lily - they were well written characters.

Overall, I think More Than Rivals is a good story, but I guess I just wanted a little more steam. ;)

I loved how the author was able to capture all the characters distinct voices and characteristics without being excessive. Her eloquence in story telling has always been what attracted me to her stories and More Than Rivals didn't disappoint. Romance tastefully written and very gratifying. By the end of Chapter one, I was fully invested with the characters and couldn't stop reading. A MUST READ!

More Than Rivals was an excellent read.
I was drawn into the story from the beginning and I found I couldn't put it down.
The chemistry between Lily and Jack is instant. The attraction between them is so strong that even being political rivals it doesn't stop them from wanting each other.
The author Mary Whitney has a brilliant way with words, she draws you into their world and you can't help but love both Jack and Lily.
This was a beautiful love story and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

One thing I've both found and enjoyed in the Mary Whitney stories I've read is that while the necessary plot device of Tension exists it never does so in an insulting ( to the reader) way. I never recall getting frustrated with the characters / author about ridiculous plot contrivances and ridiculously immature / unrealistic lack of communication betwixt the characters. I've felt it and read in so many reviews how the reader wants to throw their Kindle and shake the characters.

But not here. Instead we have adult, professional, smart, educated characters who behave in an adult, professional, smart and educated manner. Yea!

Lily and Jack are both Democrats running in a primary for a vacated northern California congressional seat. Jack's a career politician and attorney while Lily is a part-time RN, county Supervisor, mother to a young son, and a war widow. They both have impeccable backgrounds and are ethically and politically compatible, not to mention athletically compatible (lots of going for runs, training for a triathlon). They are attracted to one another but recognize the futility of the situation. Due to the nature of local campaigning they spend a lot of time in the same towns, at the same venues, and a genuine friendship results.

It's a quiet, simple story, nothing fancy, nothing too detailed or intricate. I'm sure the author is a relatively naive writer and I'd like to see her work on adding layers and details to her stories. In her Acknowledgements she says something about being part of a writers group so hopefully they're stronger writers and can encourage her development. Because I like her characters, her stories, her smart writing, I'd really like to see her become a more detailed creator. Bet she can.

If you don't mind more graphically depicted sex then I'd recommend checking out the works of author Rosalind James. Her stories are also mature with smart, self-sufficient characters who don't dabble in the embarrassing world of immature lack of communication.
