This book was an interesting and truly delicious read. The author did an superb job of depicting her magical and devastating romance, in such an elaborate fashion that the reader couldn't help but be captivated by the couple and their gorgeous love story.

Of course, though, this **is** a book about a supposed mistress of President John F. Kennedy. And we all know that a) mistresses of the Kennedy boys were/are plentiful, b) the world continues to be dazzled by the Kennedy family, and c) many peo

Apologies to the Kennedys, but Jack's (can I call him Jack? Okay) secret Swedish affair seems impossibly romantic. Kennedys! Joe Kennedy, you bastard. Don't worry, everyone, I'm going to read The Dark Side of Camelot next, and I'm sure I will no longer feel romanticized by baby Jack. I will probably feel grossed and creeped to the max. But for now, this is a serious 2-3 hour quick read and everything you'd want a love story about Jack Kennedy to be, and I definitely cried little baby tears.

This is one of those books that reads like a Nicholas Sparks novel. I pulled this book out from the library, looked at it, and figured what the hell I'll read it. I actually enjoyed it, and was moved by it. Although the book is short, it really captured the true humanity of JFK. I would recommend this book for those who like romance, but I would take out the tissues while reading this book. It can be a tear-jerker.

As a huge fan of everything Kennedy, I have ready many JFK affair books. For some reason, this book did not resonate with me at all. Honestly, if it were not for the letters which were sold at an auction a couple of years ago, I would not have believed her story. She just seemed immediately so gullible to me from their first interaction and the book felt exaggerated. Yet, Jack was a charmer so I will not put it past him.

Love, Jack was a lucky thrift shop find. This is a story about Gunilla's love affair with JFK. Gunilla isn't just some other trampy girl who wanted to get a piece of the president, she is very genuine in telling her story of how Jack and her never quite got the time they both so desired.

Yes he had many affairs. I still love JFK. I am not saying it was right. I am not to judge. I think he was still s good man.
