Winning the Campaign Manager

Rate this book
Cade Avery is running for a position on his local county council. He’s extremely good at what he does and is a valuable asset to his community. The trouble is, he upsets people, says the wrong things, and rides rough-shod over other people’s plans and ideas. His assistant, Mary, eager to improve Cade’s public image, hires him a campaign manager.

Quentin Rayworth is thrilled to be working with such a formidable public figure. It’ll be a challenge, but he’s confident he can help Cade to win the election, and knows that the achievement will look impressive on his CV.

It’s soon clear that the two men are set to be an excellent team. That is, until Cade’s werewolf makes its intentions known—in Quentin, it has found its mate, and it will not rest until he has claimed him. But can Cade—and his wolf—win over the campaign manager?

Well that was fun. I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. Lucy Felthouse always delivers interesting characters and Cade and Quentin both have nice depth and good chemistry together.

Mitchell Pett does a nice job with the narration. His voice fits the tone of the story and he makes the most of the sexy-times. I'd have been real happy with another hundred pages or so.

an audiobook copy of Winning the Campaign Manager was provided to me for the purpose of my honest review

3.5 Stars book
4 Stars narration
I think the best part of this book might have been the narration. I could barely follow the storyline in this book due to the narrators voice being so damn sexy. I have zero clue where his accent is based from, but I could happily listen to him talk all day. Idk where she finds them, but Lucy always has the best narrator voices for her audiobooks.

I'm probably going to have to listen to this one again to retain the actual story and plot were given in this book. But overall I'm pretty sure it was a good book, it was just really short...

Two men who get together out of entirely selfish reasons, one of them a werewolf running for office and the other an ambitious campaign manager, sounded like an excellent potential source of conflict, interpersonal sparks, and potential heat to me. And let me tell you – ‘Winning the Campaign Manager’ did not disappoint.

Cade is a tough guy – wait, that may have something to do with the fact that he is a werewolf. True to his heritage, he is direct. Blunt, and doesn’t really care all that much what others think. He knows what’s right – and they better get behind him if they know what’s good for them. This actually sounds worse than it is – Cade does have a heart of gold and wants to do the right thing for his community, ahem, pack – but qualifications like these are not usually part of the description of a politician. Hence, the campaign manager hired by Cade’s well-meaning assistant, for the purpose of image improvement.

Quentin is nervous, close to terrified even, to be working with someone of Cade’s caliber – and impressive physical presence. Quentin is good at figuring out what people need to do to be liked, but he knows that he has his work cut out for him not just from seeing Cade on TV, but even more so from the moment he meets Cade in person. “Shaking in his boots” with nerves is an exaggeration, but not by much. Quentin goes from terrified to almost melting with lust -while still being terrified – within seconds of the first meeting, and it gets worse from there.

Cade starts out wanting to win the race for public office but very quickly adds another objective – win the campaign manager, as in “convince” him to become his mate. Quentin starts out wanting a formidable public figure as a client on his resume but very quickly discovers that Cade is a great guy and they work together really well. Professionally that is. The personal side takes a little more time – not much - and I enjoyed every second of it. These guys are not just a hoot when they get together, they very quickly discover there is incendiary heat and loads of passion between them on a most intimate level.

If you like your romances hot and lightning-quick, if you enjoy shifter stories with a heavy serving of humor on top of an entertaining plot, and if you’re looking for a read that goes from funny to hilarious, and from hot to scorching, then you will probably like this novella as much as I do. I think it’s extremely amusing and the characters’ shenanigans made me laugh out loud more than once.

Short and sweet, with the right amount of heat...

I thoroughly enjoyed "Winning the Campaign Manager". The hunky characters captured my attention and I devoured the story in about 15 minutes. This novella made me smile, laugh out loud and then steamed up my glasses. Which I appreciated!

If you're looking for a quick bite of romantic M/M deliciousness, this is for you.

This short story is a fun, quick read with a bit of hotness.

Cade is a good guy running for office, but even his staff know he needs help with his image and hire Quentin to help Cade get elected.

I liked both MCs. Although I think it would have been fun to see more of Cade's interactions before he meets Quentin, this story doesn't have the scope for that. I loved watching Cade try to reach out to Quentin and have issues since his wolf is being uncharacteristically pushy. I think Quentin's reactions were pretty spot on. I liked these two together.

The story didn't feel as short as it is. It would have been great to see them form their bond, but the ending was still good and happy.

Lucy brings us another short, sexy story.

Cade needs help. If he is to be elected to represent his local area he needs a bit of a PR boost.

His aide, Mary, hires a Campaign Manager and tells Cade he is to listen to him and do as he says. Non to pleased with this turn of events Cade meets Quinten, and finds his inner wolf has found his soul mate.

A sexy fun great quick read.

Having read Lucy before I knew I would enjoy this story, and I so did. There were quite a few laugh out loud moments, which earned me a few funny looks from my family, lol.
As you'd expect from a short story, this is a fast paced read and things happen very quickly, but, hey, when a shifter meets his mate, he just knows, right?

If you're looking for a fun, hot little shifter story, then pick this one up. You won't be disappointed.

It’s not a 3 stars but it’s not worth 4 stars either. The narrator Mitchell is good.
When is new boss came in strong Quentin felt uncomfortable and decided that he really didn’t need the job after all. But when the truth about Cade comes out well the book just kind of ends. I think I would have liked to have read more of this story. I know it was short but it did feel a little incomplete.

I wished there was more to this story. I was enjoying the characters and Quentin's playfulness. I enjoyed the premise, and the fact that two separate worlds were combining.

Cade and Quinton are so cute together! They both are in afraid to show their vulnerabilities, which makes this insta-love work. Short but sweet!
