“I seem to be a game changer.”

“Understatement. You’re more than the game changer. You’re the game and the team and the league and the whole universe of sports wrapped up not one neat little package.”

I am the happiest reader right now. I have the biggest smile on my face. Why you ask? Because the ending of this fantastic series was PERFECTION. I cannot get enough of Brady Maxwell.

In this third book in the series, Brady and Liz are back on again. Thrust into the public eye at the end of 'On the Record', they are faced with a media frenzy. After so much time apart, they try to rebuild their relationship while trying to quell the negative headlines.

Once again, I found myself a bit irritated with Brady. Don't get me wrong, he definitely made some positive changes in regards to how he treated Liz. It seems that he did learn a little something during their separation.

If you've kept up with the series, you know that Brady and Liz are back together and ready to face things head on standing side by side...finally.

I was happy with this final installment of the series. I loved how unstoppable Brady was and how he wasn't going to let anything come between them ever again!

I thought Liz handled things really well. Sure, she made some mistakes but she learned from them and moved forward. She had some rough moments but she was determined as well.

I was really surprised with For the Record. K.A. Linde is known for major angsty books. I feel like I’ve been on this up and down roller coast from Off the Record, but For the Record is not filled with hair pulling out scenes. It’s actually very adorable and will leave you smiling.

I have some reservations with Brady, I guess I can’t get over the whole hiding Liz and being away from her for a year kind of thing (even if it was Liz breaking up with him).

"I'll always be your airplane."

Re-read 2019. Still love it.

I have loved this series right from 'Off the Record', but excited as I was to get my hands on this third and final part of the story, my excitement was tempered by the prospect of no more Brady.

Ahhh, Brady...a man with power, influence, charisma who's also hot, gawjus and romantic fuels my little book inspired fantasies very nicely indeed, but I digress.

Much as I adored reading the second book, 'On the Record', I have to admit

Brady & Liz can no longer deny their feelings and after the article exposing their relationship was published, there’s no hiding their relationship. Although this love started years ago, these two have just a few weeks under their belt as a couple when they have to face not only the public scrutiny, his re-election and what this will mean for her career. But one thing is known for certain. It’s all worth it.

Rating Clarification: 4.5 stars

This is only of those times when I wish goodreads had 1/2 stars rating. I think in this book we were able to see Liz grow and I was so glad that she wasn't as indecisive as she was in the second book. I was also so happy that we got so much more Brady in this book he was honestly my favorite character, he couldn't be any more perfect. I think my favorite part of this book was the epilogue, it was so sweet. However, the I would have liked to see what happened with (

The final installment to the Record series has finally come, and Brady and Liz's heartache is over!

One thing I loved about this series is how the timeline spans years...and so much happens. Often I think authors don't give enough space for the couple to live their life outside of the angsty romance, and that does a disservice to the story. But as we all know, Liz and Brady definitely got to live their separate lives for awhile! Not that I particularly loved reading about that part, but it was a

I will say I've had this on my to read list for months. For some reason it just never called to me. I bought it on audio cause it was on sale on for $4.95. I just have to say that it was the most well spent $5 bucks I've spent in a long while! So well in fact, I went right away and bought the next two books. I will also tell you the narrator was FABULOUS!

This was much better than I was anticipating. While there's still angsty drama that is often unnecessary, K.A. Linde's writing has certainly matured. I'm glad I stuck around for the conclusion, because the HEA was much appreciated :)

I can add another series to my list of "Series I Want to Finish in 2015" list. I read books one and two in this series (Off the Record & On the Record) last year, but I didn't have time to get to this book before 2014 the end of 2014. I really enjoyed Off the Record, but the last two books in the series didn't keep me interested. For the Record had some good moments, but overall I was really bored with it.

4.5 stars!! As you can see, what started as reading an old book off my kindle turned into reading a whole trilogy in one and half days!! Why had I not read this series earlier? 1click fingers get trigger happy and many great books are lost in a list until one day you just flick the pages and click on them.

Brady Maxwell has kept me entertained for so many hours and has caused me to lose practically two nights sleep, reading until the kindle hit me in the face twice...but I reached the end at 3am


I LOVE Brady Maxwell. And he just keeps on getting better in each book. I'm SO sad this series is all over with but what a superb ending. This book picks up not too long after 'On the Record' ended. Brady gave suuuch thought provoking speeches when they were about Liz in this book. I swooned. It was great.

Liz had a lot of growth in this book as well. There was one particular scene where I thought she was going to do something that made Brad

Brady Maxwell. Brady fucking Maxwell. I'm so sad this series is over, but so happy at how it ended. K.A. Linde is an automatic 1-click author for me. Every book she has written I have read and LOVED! But I have a special place in my heart for Brady. Especially the Brady we meet in For The Record. He's still the same Brady only he's grown as a person. Every word that came out of his mouth was pure gold. Pure perfection. PERFECTION!

Sometime reviews are hard, but at the same time the whole concept is pretty damn easy. You type how you feel about a book. Simple, right? Wrong. This is one of those time where I'm a little stuck.

I enjoyed this series. Truly. Off the Record left me begging for more, but I would be remiss in saying that I loved the final installment or that it ended as strong as it started. For the Record moved a little too slowly for me. Throughout the story, I thought something was buildin

For the Record by K. A. Linden is a first reads win and I'm giving my honest opinion. Congressman Brady Maxwell of North Carolina is up for re election. He got caught with Liz. Press accused them of a sordid affair. Brady introduces Liz as his girlfriend. Heather, his press secretary is angry with with Liz. Liz's 'friends' released the story of Liz being a home wrecker and being a loose woman. Brady tells Liz not to worry about it. Liz loses her position of editor of the paper. Then her internsh ...more

Absolute perfection! I couldn't have asked for a better way to close the series.

Loved when liz fought back at heather & told her where to go – “why don’t you just shut the fuck up!”

Still love the format of liz's POV with the final chapter in Brady's POV.

And then that epilogue... Gave us everything we needed to know that they lived their HEA, followed their dreams & got what they always dreamed of having.

Brady! Brady! Brady! Oh how I love this man. What a wonderful conclusion to this couples journey. I loved every bit of this crazy up and down story. The love in this book is heartwarming and breathtaking and so believable. loved the writing with this series. It was so descriptive and I loved that because I could totally place myself at every scene and visualize every character. I was truly captivated by this amazing story. My favorite bin for sure!

“The lowest lows bring the highest highs. And when you find someone who brings you both, that doesn’t mean you should walk away; it means you have something special.”

Their path to togetherness was long and winding filled with numerous obstacles, heart-breaks, misunderstandings, misery, passion, and sacrifices but Liz and Brady made it to the end. Their love for each other prevailed against all odds and that what’s make this third book in the series so much better and a compelling read.

I love Kyla's books...the angst, the torture, the steam and most of all the love that is incorporated throughout each and every story she creates. For the Record was the perfect conclusion to Brady and Liz's story. Their journey hasn't been an easy one and For the Record will finally answer the question that these two have been asking since book 1 - in the game of love and politics, is it worth the risk?

For me, the answer has always been a big resounding YES! For me, love is always wor
