In the latest novel from #1 New York Times bestselling authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, a woman looks back at her summer internship at the White House when she was seduced by the President of the United States and drawn into a complex affair destined to destroy both her and the presidency.Following college, Jamie McAllister wins a prestigious internship at the White House that she has no idea will irrevocably alter her life. An unexpected flirtation with the handsome and charismatic Gregory Rutland quickly leads to an emotional relationship she is ill equipped to handle at twenty-two. Each time she tries to extricate herself Greg is unable to find the strength to let her go. Meanwhile, the opposing party mobilizes to annihilate his presidency by any means necessary. As Greg’s conflicting desires drive her to the breaking point, Jamie can’t help but reveal intimate details to those closest to her. But she must have unburdened herself to the wrong person—because within a matter of weeks Jamie finds herself, and everyone she loves, facing highly calculated destruction at the hands of Greg’s political enemies. With her every mistake dragged out for the world to judge, Jamie has to endure an unprecedented trial in the court of public opinion—with the fate of the President, his party, and the country at stake. Now, years later, can the woman infamously known as the “girl in the blue dress” make sense of this affair, and the trauma it wrought, for the world—and for herself?

I am undecided about this book. I'm not sure if I liked it or not. On the one hand, I loathe anything that tries to make cheating justifiable. Why did I even read this book? Because on the other hand, I love scandal. I was hoping this book would be so full of scandal and considering the story line, ...

I wanted to like this book. I've wanted to like all the author's books and yet I haven't. Yet I keep reading them. Anyway, the story focuses on a young intern in DC during election season and the trouble she finds herself in when she has an affair with the President. It seemed to be a fictionali...
