On the outside, Alex Conrad has everything. He’s gorgeous, rich, and has just been elected to the United States Senate by the state of Virginia.

But for the past few years, something has plagued Alex. Something has been missing from his life of privilege and opportunity. Something he has never allowed himself to acknowledge, until the night of his election.

Prudence Romaine falls in love at 16 with Alex Conrad. It just happens to be that he is seventeen years older. Loving the Senator is a fun light sexy read. Alex is older, more controlled and very skilled in the tongue department. We watch their love unfold. This story also has a few twists and surprises.

Alex Conrad

Prudence Romaine

One negative was several typos and poor editing. But other than that it was funny and light. If you want a quick read check it out.

This book starts off in a way that other books usually build up towards. On the greatest night in Alex conrad's life- celebrating his election- Prudence makes it very clear she wants him. Things happen and he ask her out on a date.
At this point its too soon to judge the book. Clearly it is quite different than others (which is refreshing) that it doesn't follow the standard story progression. However it definitely takes away that vital angst and attraction build up which is incredibly unfortuna

This book was in serious need of a beta reader, or if it had a beta reader, it was in serious need of a better one. I could barely make it past the first chapter. I was so intrigued by the storyline, but coming up with a good idea for a story and actually writing that story are two very different things. The first two sentences made me cringe. There was no development, no build-up, no context. You have to create angst, not just expect readers to develop it themselves. Things were happening in th ...more

So dumb! It just starts off with her wanting to jump the senator. It didn't even let the reader care about there relationship, to "feel" the development of there relationship. For how important supposedly he was to her you'd think she wanted more than just sex. Then the senator was about to fondle her & then all of sudden thought of her as 16? Then all of a sudden because of a sexy dress he can now have sex with her. Then the crude speech seems so unnecessary & to me doesn't fit the sena ...more

Disappointed. And that's being polite. Read the reviews on Amazon that rave how this is better than Fifty Shades. I can't believe it! This is ONE SHADE and it's BORING. The dialogue is stilted, the sex is canned, and the whole premise is never delivered.I can't believe how ridiculous this tale turns out to be. I wanted to skim but then decided, since the reviews were glowing it would get better. IT DIDN'T! Waste of time. It's the first book I've read in years and felt the need to set the record ...more

This book has a lot f potential. The story is actually good, I just wish it was better executed...
It felt too rushed and some of their past should have been given more atrention and exaind earlier.
This should have been a longer, more developed story...

I am stupid crazy for books about politicians. Everyone wants the billionaire or the MC guy these days but for me I am all about a man in political power. He is the chosen one…he is the most popular guy in the room…and there is a sex appeal and a subtle arrogance knowing that he is the one most revered with a big fat W in his column.

When my partner in crime, BSG, pointed out Loving the Senator, I knew I had to get it. Even if it wasn’t about a sexy politician, the cover itself would caught my at

Have you wondered how is to fall in love with a high profile politician? To deal with all that means to be a politician’s girlfriend. To feel all eyes on you. Wondering why does he fall in love with you. To listen the critics of the media. Surely it is a world full of craziness.

Prudence will have to learn how to deal with all the craziness that means to be a high profile politician’s girlfriend. She is intelligent and so in love with Alex Conrad (Mr. Senator). But the past they shared will make

3.5-4 stars. Overall good premise to the story. It's not just about Prudence, a woman 17 years younger than Alex Conrad, the newly elected Senator's love story. They have a history together and of course there's politics and reputations involved, too. The pace was good, the characters were well-portrayed and there's plenty of chemistry between Prudence and Alex. What didn't work for me was Prudence. On the one hand, I really liked her, she went after what she wanted, she made a success story of ...more
The Lusty Literate
Despite some early favorable reviews and tempting teasers, I found Prudence and Alex’s romance to be a contrived, awkward and deflated affair that failed to hold my attention.

Alex and Prudence are a hard couple to love. Prudence’s bland and odd personality is passable in comparison to Alex’s glaring shortcomings. The Senator, instead of exuding power, command and raw sexuality, as you might expect and hope for in a fantasized politician, reveals himself to be a weak, conflicted and cowardly man.

What a fantastic story! Loving the Senator had me hooked from page one and I couldn't wait to finish, speeding through the story, absorbing each and every page. I fell in love with Alex - who wouldn't right? He's powerful, and sexy as hell! The emotion between Alex and Prudence heats up the pages, and I admit, had me fanning myself at times. No spoilers, but I will say, I have a new found appreciation for pearl necklaces. Holy hotness!

The character development in this story is fantastic, and I

Prudence has been in love with Alex since she was 16. Now 9 years later working as his campaign manager the election is over and Alex has made Senator Prudence decides it's the time to tell him how she feels. Alex 18 years her senior has a hard time not seeing her as the 16 year old little girl that he rescued. He does his best to stay away, but the chemistry between the two of them is to strong and finds it impossible to stay away.

Move over 50 Shades of Gray here comes Mia Villano with all the sex, scandal and politics you could want in our nations capital. With so much happening behind closed doors this book is a page turner.

It wasn't the Best book out there but it was good. there were some spelling errors and it went a bit fast, can't stand the name prudence too, but a Beatles fan. .. she forgave way to fast and for someone who wanted in his pants so bad she sure got mad when the obvious rumors started. and she forgave him quick too.

Let me first start by stating that I personally was unable to form a connection with Prudence. I tried, but it just never happened. I think that my lack of feelings towards her is the main reason I just didn't care for this book. You of course may feel differently, so please keep that in mind while reading my review.

Prudence is around twenty-four/twenty-five years of age. She's in law school, makes good grades and has just helped Senator Alex Conrad win the Virginia Senate position as his campai

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

I will admit that I was first drawn to Loving the Senator with its stunning cover. Then the blurb fascinated me and I knew I had to read this book. I have some mixed feelings about this one, but I can honestly say that I couldn't put it down. I think maybe part of it was the forbidden nature of the relationship, but it was also extremely hot. I am really intrigued with where Mia is headed with this series, and I can't wait to read more.

At around 160 pages, I found Loving the Senator to be a lovely quick book to get through. Of course, there were many parts I wanted to read a few times over – just to make sure I got the full… thrust of the information being imparted by the author. And oh my, I did. Under aged? I would strongly suggest other reading material to start with. This book goes into rather (wonderful) intimate detail and is not for the faint of constitution.

My feelings on this book went up and down more than a yo-yo on

Review from my blog Life of a bookworm

This is the first book that is given to me for review from publisher and I am so happy that it was that book. I was part of book blitz so you can find excerpt of the book here :)

Mia Villano did a great job with this book. It’s interesting, hot and erotic.

At first I didn't know what to expect. I don’t like politics and hoped it would not ruin the book. And thank God it didn't. There was only small but necessary part of politics in it.

I enjoyed this book. It was smexy and sweet. We have pasts that help shape someone into a more determined and driven person and one that has them more guarded.

Alex is guarded and driven. He is a gentlemen and torn about his emotions. He doesn’t want to give in because of Prudence’s past and his role in saving her. He wants to keep her from feeling like he likes her because he saved her. He wants to make sure his age doesn’t have a effect and neither does his career. He doesn’t her to feel pressu
