Randi and Trey are both very intense characters. They go all in and are very passionate about everything. Be it their career, be it the people the love and be it the people they hate. Randi has been trying to make a name for herself and remove the label society put on ...more
I knew from the moment Randi Kyle asked her to do what he did that Tr ...more
Randi is, in a way, a damsel in distress, but she is anything but stereotypical. She smokes. She drinks. She swears. She’s the mayor of a tiny rural town. She kept me constantly amused, especially when she sniffed the wallpaper. She is hilarious!
Trey is strong, tough, and even lethal. He’s exactly what you’d expect from an alpha male. Kyle and ...more
Trey Benson is a cocky firebrand of a secret service agent who is in the alpha team securing the Vice Prez. But he gets demoted due to overstepping his boundaries, till the next election. He dearly wishes that someone would appear who would stand up to those slimy crowd of DC.
This is where Randi Sawyer comes in, a broke lawyer who lives out of a trailer with her teenage daughter Taeler and who is also the mayor of her small town. When the pedigreed corrupt next Prez hopeful offers h ...more
Power, prestige, influence. Oh and helping your fellow man if possible, of course. And don’t forget the back-stabbing, behind the scenes wheeling and dealing and true unpleasantness that can be any rise to the top. How Randi and Trey fit into this dog eat dog world was a reading treat…
I LOVED Randi’s character. She fought her whole life for respect, to be considered worthy. She worked hard and did her very best but she just couldn’t seem to catch a break. When a bad wind blew bac ...more
Randi Sawyer is a smart, feisty and surprising heroine pulled into the DC political scene; and Trey is the cocky, alpha, protective Secret Service agent who will have your panties melting from his opening lines. Together, these two are HOT - their chemistry is on fire, and I loved every interaction between them.
There are twists and turns, and charact ...more
I love Randi and all her quirks. She is one of the little people who is trying to be a voice to all the other little people in this country. She wants to be the change that the DC bureaucrats won't and haven't been.
She agrees to an arrangement with a sleazy politician she had the displeasure of knowing from her days at Harvard. Through her time on the campaign trail sh ...more
[I received a digital arc for an honest review]
Kennedy L Mitchell has become one of my favorite authors. She knows how to write a suspenseful story with strong female leads and swoon worthy men.
Randi Sawyer is from the lower class and while she was a single mom who hit rock bottom she crawled her way out of it by getting a great education and even becoming mayor of her small home town. Yet, she's still drowning in debt and seems unable to break from her mold when a college rival offers her...more
I held off starting this book for as long as I possibly could waiting for part 2 to come out because I HATE a cliff hanger, and this book definitely leaves you wanting more. Hot, prote ...more
But all is all, I feel like this series is going to eat my soul alive. The setting. The characters. The power plays. The chemistry. It’s going to unfold so wildly...
ADD TO TBR. This is just the beginning. It’s the intro. It’s a freaking teaser is what this is. Kennedy is playing the big cards now. Keep an eye out for this series!
This is my first Kennedy L. Mitchell book! I was far from disappointed, I loved every word exchanged between Trey and Randi! Their banter is so entertaining. This set a great foundation to what I can tell will be an amazing series, now I can't wait to read the rest.
Power Play by Kennedy L. Mitchell is an EPIC read and will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!! ...more
"Pretty much he needs Trailer Park Barbie next to him to show the voters he isn't the aristocratic douche they assume he is at the core. Which he is, so basically I'll lie."
What I loved the most is the complex person that ...more
A man who can't see past the shiny, glitzy face in front of him. A woman afraid that she'll only ever be trailer trash.
Kennedy Mitchell's Power Play begins, showing a beaten down woman who thinks she's never going to be seen for her true self, and a man so bored by the status quo in Washing ...more
All five books follow one couple through the ups and downs of their behind the scenes love story. With both of their careers on the line, plus her safety, there is zero room for error. Each page you'll fall deeper in love with the sexy and mischievous hero, Trey Benson, and the strong, rough around the edges heroine, ...more
Believable, fast paced romantic suspense that had me flipping through the pages, biting my nails, on the edge of my seat waiting for what happened next.
Randi is a total bad ass heroine - I girl crush her & Trey well he is just alpha yumminess!
Cannot wait for more of these characters!

About the book: Release Date January 20, 2020
There's no turning back. I can't go home a failure--again. Everyone wants to use me, make me their pawn, but I have other plans. I will win this election or die trying.
It started with a shady business proposal I should've turned down. Now here I am pretending to be someone I'm not, and bonus, I'm at the mercy of a man whose joy comes from my failures. The deeper I sink into DC's seedy political scene the more I realize I can't tr ...more

Power Play is about the main leads Randi and Trey. Randi grew up with a drug addicted mother and poor. Wanting to escape this life, she is not your typical politician. She is so fun.

Trey is a Secret Service agent who dislikes the less than honest side of politics. When he is assigned to protect Randi he will do whatever is necessary to keep her safe but she is definitely not what he expected and he is drawn to her in a way t ...more
WHAT a brilliant read. This series was suggested to me by a fellow reader, she warned me that this is a series you won't put down and she was right. Kennedy seamlessly weaves a tale of dysfunction and chaos while threatening to blow apart the inner workings of Washington DC and the political arena.
Her main character Randi is a strong take no nonsense single mum looking to pull herself out of the hell and squalor she has been living in. The m ...more
Being separated from her daughter and showing everyone that they are wro ...more
I adored these two so much. The heat between the two of them was off the charts. From the moment they meet there’s a spark, and it just keeps building throughout the story...
The characters deal with real issues in today’s society, and it’s handled beautifully. Kennedy weaves the story with so much intrigue and suspense that you can‘t stop reading. You have to know what happens next.
I cannot say enough about this story, but I’m going to stop myself ...more
Ladies and gentlemen you have come across my first book of 2020 that would be at least 6 stars if I could do that.
What a way to start a series. I'm so glad the author has decided to do more than 2 books as I never want to say goodbye to Randi and her secret service men.
I was laughing and crying right along side them and cannot wait for them to rule the world.
Then there is Trouble with a capital T....
This is going to be interesting to read.
ONE CLICK IMMEDIATELY!!! ...more
