Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After a freak lightning storm which interrupts her first one-night stand, shy librarian Alexis Stone is thrust into the spotlight when photographers catch her in the arms of the hotshot candidate running for governor of Texas who, to squelch rumors, demands she pretends to be his girlfriend until election day.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2023 April #2
    A consummate younger sister, Alexis Stone is usually happiest on the sidelines—a good thing, as her outspoken older sister, Lee, commands more than her share of the proverbial spotlight as a state senator. Despite being fairly plugged into the Texas political scene thanks to Lee, Alexis doesn't recognize up-and-coming gubernatorial candidate Logan Arthur when she's out at one of Austin's hottest bars. Their chance meeting turns into an opportunity for Alexis to contribute her time and talents to Logan's campaign, and she soon finds herself in the spotlight's full beam. Readers of Fool Me Once (2022) will recognize some familiar characters, but The Boyfriend Candidate stands on its own merits too. Mixing political and romantic intrigue, Winstead's novel combines the darker side of politics with the lighter side of life. With a few steamy encounters and a ripped-from-the-headlines feel, The Boyfriend Candidate will appeal to fans of Lianne Moriarty, Ellen Meister, Amy Mason Doan, and anyone looking for a little more escapism in their political diet.
