This first Kimani Romance by Candace Shaw was great. I fell love with the story and characters. You should never judge a book by its cover. Steven proved that.

Great start to a new family series. Loved Megan and Steven's story. Megan had trust issues, but after a while she overcame them with the help of her family and friends. A very sweet HEA. Looking forward to more of the Chase family.

Her Perfect Candidate by Candace Shaw (Semi-Spoiler Review)

As always, each time I read a novel penned by Candace Shaw, I normally complete it within a few hours; because it’s just that entertaining. A true romance. A sweet love story; along with some humor. With that been said, you’re possibly wondering why I didn’t rate this book a five star. In my opinion, I felt something was off with this novel. The heroine Megan Chase has it together career wise; an educated and beautiful woman inside and o
I realize that Steven rescued Megan when she needed him the most. But she more than repaid him by supporting his fund raising and attending his galas but putting up with his sleazy ex-wife's disrespectful antics was a bit too much for me. I realize he's a politician but appearing with his ex-wife after stating he wouldn't seemed a little deceitful to me. Also the ending seemed rushed as well.

Late from getting a flat tire, co-owner of an upcoming interior design firm, Megan Chase pulled over to changed the tire in her party short dress and four inch heels, but she was delayed by a call from her twin. She quickly bent over to grab her purse when a car pulled up. The guy was easy to most gorgeous looking man she had ever seen, but with her ex betrayal, she was happy to be on her own as she tried telling her matchmaking friends!

Steven Monroe couldn't let the woman stay stranded with a f

Candace Shaw did an awesome job writing "Her Perfect Candidate". Playboys are hard to tame until they meet their match. In this love story, Senator Steven Monroe does exactly that when he meets Interior Designer, Megan Chase. Even though I am not a fan of the playboy type, I found myself secretly rooting for him to clean up his image so that he can once and for all settle down with his true love. What I dislike even than a player is a conniving female who wants to have her cake and eat it too! E ...more

I was going to try to write this review without using the word “perfect” but I believe I’ll fail. The way Megan and Steven met was so adorable and I’d have to say perfect. From the beginning Steven was this awesome man that I was rooting for, both in the political arena and in their romance. He was a politician with a heart. Megan was such an ambitious lovely woman that I wanted her to be happy.

Just enough drama, tears, laughter, and good lovin’ to make this novel a fast paced read.

Cute Story!!!

The book was a page turner I really interested in how the relationship would develop and liked the characters, she was supportive and he was romantic. My only complaint was I was hoping to receive more details about why the ex wife wanted to cause trouble.
If you want light and a cute love story then you should read this book.
I'm waiting for Sydney and Bryce story!

Another good read from Candace Shaw! Loved Megan and Steven; their story was nicely done, without a lot of unnecessarily drawn out drama. I like that. The story had a nice bit of heat to it, too.

Great cast of characters in this one. I'm sure Sydney's story is next (is her love interest who I think it is? hmmm...), but I'm hoping that the other friends get stories too.

Keep the good stories coming, please ma'am!

Ms. Candace Shaw does it again, what a great read. It had a different twist that I wasn't expecting and of course I love the characters. Megan, such a lady. Veronica, got on my nerves, but Megan handled her and the situation with class. I couldn't believe they broke up, but I guess it had to happen for the outcome. Great job as always Ms. Shaw!

This was truly a excellent love story. I really enjoyed Megan and Steven's story. I hope we will be able to read more about Sydney and Bryce to find out if they will make a love connection. This was the first book I have by this author but it will not be my last. JUST one word to some up this book and that is excellent!

I enjoyed Steven Monroe and Rome Megan Chase's story. You can't help but fall in love with this couple. Ms. Shaw has done a good job of building the characters, warts and all, taking us through their challenges and giving them their HEA.

Recommends it for: All romance junkies
A flat tire brings player Steven Monroe and no nonsense Megan Chase together. The prefect friendship, their love for community and helping children. His reputation makes the friendship hard, but they are both willing to take the risk.

Don't let the title fool you..

I have really become a fan of Can dance Shaw. She didn't disappoint w/Her Perfect Candidate. It was very detail & the hot romance begins at the beginning. My ONLY issue is

Shaw's books are too SHORT!!

Greta Harkness

This book was superficial and predictable. Same ole story lines with characters jumping to conclusions to quickly. Author spent more time describing the outfits then developing her characters.

I don't know what took me so long to read this book. I am not a big fan of politics so I will say that is what took me so long. I was wrong. This book was wonderful. The romance was real even at the beginning. I think I could be a Senator's wife. :)

Good Read

This was a good book that showed how two people had an instant connection. I wasn't a fan of how long it took Megan to realize that he was seriously interested. She kind of came across as a little childish. I can't wait for the next book.

Some slow parts, but Megan Chase and Steven Monroe manage to keep it interesting as their "pretend" relationship becomes all too real.
