Boston attorney Logan Montgomery never wanted to run for office - his father just assumed he would follow in his footsteps. Rejecting getting ahead due to his family's money, he prefers to be a public defender and living a clutter free life. In order to derail his political career, he needs to ruin his pristine reputation quickly. And what better way than to romance a woman from the wrong side of the tracks in a very public forum... His grandmother meanwhile is trying to make sure her grandchildren are settled before she passes on (a tiresome plot device used in Phillips' "Heartbreaker" series as well).
Catherine "Cat" Luck is a caterer trying to live down her family's colorful reputation which includes prostitution and mob ties. When she meets Logan at his dad's party, she is drawn to him, but feels that they are too far from each other socially to make a go at a relationship. But Logan is not taking no for an answer. But somewhere along the way while trying to derail his bid for office, he falls for the plucky gal, though she still can't be sure of his motivations.
"Simply Scandalous" is a good follow-up to "Simply Sinful," but lacks the humor of the first. The next in the series, "Simply Sensual" features Logan's sister Grace.
this is one of 3 if you get one you need the rest here is a list of all of them simply sinful, simply scandalous and of course this one simply sensual.. all GREAT books.
I always like reading Carly Phillips books and this one was no exception.
2 nd in a series. "Pot Luck" caterer, Cat, is fixed up with an Assistant District Attorney by his loving Grandmother. Her original idea was to create a scandle so that he would not have to run for Mayor, a job his rich father wants him to hold. This hot fairy tale is for adults.
A great romantic novel by Phillips ... Be sure to read her others as well.
