Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Nicola Kraus Goodreads Author. Jamie McAlister has resigned herself to the fact that in this job market, her painfully expensive degree might only get her a position at Starbucks, when she suddenly lands a prestigious internship at the White House.
An unexpected encounter late one evening with the charismatic President Gregory Rutland seems like just a fleeting flirtation, but when he orchestrates clandestine meetings and late-night phone calls, their relationship quickly escalates.
Jamie knows what she is doing is wrong: Yet each time she tries to extricate herself, Greg pulls her back in. Hardcover , pages.

Lists with This Book. This friend Erica has enough problems to cause a psychiatrist to start pounding whiskey faster than he can fill the glasses in the middle of her agreed upon appointment time.
Being completely starved for attention, to the point that she would have adopted a pet tarantula if he would just give her a hug, she devoted her time and resources to a completely unattainable man, simply because he had given her a look and possibly melted her thong in the process.
The President of the United States POTUS may have made googly eyes at her, but she began to view her life as some sort of fairy tale, where she was Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel, all rolled into one big happy family.
But, instead, of rooting for her, I felt sorry for her, and the massive number of ensuing missteps that somehow completely enclosed her life.
Instead of being a likeable character, she had turned into the princess. Brooke, Betsy, James, Greg, Lena, Peter, Paul, and Rachelle all lost my sympathy at some point during the novel, or never had it at all, and I sat back and waited for the hammer to drop on their lives.
When it did, I took some sort of sick pleasure in their ensuing half-existence. None of this is to say this is a bad novel.
It was light and airy and breezy like a bag of popcorn, and it filled me up about as well as cotton candy. I received this book for free through NetGalley.
View all 4 comments. Despite not being a huge fan of cheating in books, I felt myself compelled into reading this story because of our MC Jamie.
I understand how Jamie felt around him, he was a powerful man and he made her feel what another man was never able to do. But to me from the very beginning it was very clear that this relationship did not mean to him as much as it meant to Jamie.
Instead she was fobbed off to another unpaid apprenticeship this time away from the White House and Jamie was told soon after the election, he would sort everything out.
Poor Jamie was a complete sucker, instead of listening to her best friend and going back home, Jamie kept running back whenever he called and just kept waiting in the wings.
But this time we get to experience first-hand everything falling apart. And it was painstakingly horrible to watch, with people going back on their word, people coming out of the woodwork to get their two seconds of fame, and Jamie not knowing who she could trust.
It was a brutal time for Jamie, but through it all a better character emerged within Jamie and a stronger relationship between her and her sister.
But there were also parts which did take me a while to get around. This review can be found on: Aug 25, Amy rated it it was amazing.
Do you ever wonder about the women involved in sex scandals? Do you want to ask them, "What the hell were you thinking?
Perhaps if I worked with him, I would have been more open to him, Do you ever wonder about the women involved in sex scandals?
Perhaps if I worked with him, I would have been more open to him, sexually speaking. Or any sort of speaking. Lewinsky was young, and when I was in my early twenties, my taste in men was ridiculous.
Jamie McAllister is fresh out of college and watching all of the money that went to her degree appear to be worthless. She got an internship at the White House and is singularly unimpressed.
But she is restless and wants a real, paying job. Until, that is, a chance meeting in the hallway. Their paths cross, and then they cross again. And then they cross with a little more passion.
Jamie is, remember, young. She does not have the benefit of much life experience, and her decisions reflect that. She does not know, for instance, how to choose her friends or how to know whom she can trust.
Can she trust Rutland? The romance - and it is a romance - is fascinating. We know why Jamie is attracted to Rutland, and we come to learn why he is attracted to her.
We can guess, based on what we know of other powerful men brought down by their dangly bits. Perhaps he felt untouchable no pun intended.
Perhaps it is as simple as hubris. There is quite a bit of intrigue going on here as well. Jamie gets betrayed, and betrayed again. She comes to question her character judgments, and rightfully so.
What twenty-two-year-old woman in love with an older man or any age man, for that matter manages to think straight?
She believes in him and she trusts him. She cannot conceive of him ever abandoning her or betraying her. Yes, there is the matter of Mrs.
Jamie is very much aware that Rutland has a wife, and, like most of us would, she justifies her relationship with him. She occasionally allows reality to creep in, but she refuses to let it take root.
Jamie is wonderfully written. She exasperates us and frustrates us, yet she makes us care about her. There were times while reading this that I hoped she and Rutland could be together and be happy.
I enjoyed this book as well, and I had a difficult time letting go of it when I finished. I may not have always liked Jamie, and I may not have always agreed with her decisions, but I was on her side.
She made me more empathetic to the Monica Lewinskys of the world. Thanks to edelweiss for the preview. Jul 19, Dianne rated it liked it Shelves: One would think that to be a young intern at the White House, one would have to have strong allies, an impressive resume, intelligence, common sense, personal integrity and standards, luck, and be mature enough to conduct oneself appropriately in the scrutinizing eyes of the public, or at least not get caught.
The First Affair proves that the "human" element can cancel out all the rest! Of course, it all unravels because Jamie apparently has not heard the phrase, "Loose lips sink ships.
She did come from a dysfunctional family, but this does not excuse or explain her actions. The character of the president was too weak to be believed, he was flat.
August 27, Publisher: Aug 27, Gaele rated it liked it Shelves: But far from feeling like it could be possible and that Jaime has something to offer beyond her degree, Jaime was possibly the most dislikable and vapid character I have ever met.
Unable to get along with anyone without first considering the consequences and benefits FOR her, the small pieces of her vast insecurities were left untapped, and gave me no reason to find her remotely engaging beyond the watching a train wreck sort of way.
Unfortunately, the majority of the first half of the book does not fit with the quality that is finally appearing in the latter half: But, I soldiered on, and the second half was a bit better: And perhaps, the fact that the authors were able to create characters for this story that alternated between my wanting to strangle them or hoping for the karma bus to run them over is the real treat.
I have, however, read better by this team of writers. I received an eArc copy from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review.
I was not compensated for this review: Aug 31, Paula Robinson rated it liked it. I waffled between giving this book two or three salutes, and as I got three fourths of the way through things started to change for me.
Everything became a lot clearer, and I could see what the book was really about. Jamie had to define her own path since childhood. She looked for love and attention wherever she could ge I waffled between giving this book two or three salutes, and as I got three fourths of the way through things started to change for me.
Her demanding sister, who played a pivotal role in her finding her way throughout the novel, took away that attention she craved from her mom and dad.
Therefore she did what she could to get noticed, and one of the ways she did that was by focusing on being a good student, a hard worker, and a good daughter.
Jamie carried that trait into adulthood, and through her hard work and diligence she got a position she craved, an internship at the White House.
This position was a true test for her, and she worked hard to show that she could be trusted, and that she would be an ideal candidate for a full time position.
Everything changed during the furlough, and it was at this point where the true test of her character came into play. She, a brilliant young woman, refused to see her situation for what it was, and held on to hopeless ideas that would never see the light of day, at least in my reality.
For a more in depth review go to my blogpost here: Dec 23, Cheyenne rated it it was ok. The story itself is not bad and is entertaining for the most part.
My problem was that I found that it was just written strangely. There are a couple of mentions of getting "on line" at Starbucks to order Apparently, "on line" is the same as "in line" Also there would just be lines of dialogue that would jump from one thing to the next without any kind of smooth transition.
A few examples of awkward writing: Her relationship with her sister was strange and actually her whole family dynamic was strange. As it was, I was reading with the feeling that too much explanation had been edited out.
It was just too hard to see exactly what was going on. Oct 02, Tracy rated it it was ok Shelves: I feel like they write a complete book and then delete every 5th paragraph.
I never can quite figure out what is going on. It was not completely unreadable, hence the generous two stars, but I really need to learn the following: Nothing these authors ever write will ever even approach The Nanny Diaries.
Jul 07, Sherri Ashburner rated it it was amazing. I loved this novel! A young intern, a charismatic President, a dark hallway Jun 10, Virginia Myers rated it it was ok.
I received this book through Bookbrowse First Impressions. I would like to give this book two ratings — one rating for Part 1 of the book and a different rating for the remainder.
I have no idea how the two authors collaborated on writing the book and this most likely has nothing to do with my problem but it seemed to me as if a different writer took over midway through it.
My rating for the first half would be a 1- a one minus. I had a very hard time getting used to the combination of the w I received this book through Bookbrowse First Impressions.
I had a very hard time getting used to the combination of the writing style and the vocabulary. The vocabulary may have been a generational thing — this story was about the experiences of a current day young college graduate on her very first job named Jamie while I am a female 79 year old enjoying retirement at an independent living facility.
Also, there were too many sentences where I finally did figure out what was meant, but it is distracting when you have to think about it before going on.
My rating for the last part of the book would be a 3. While I had to push myself to continue reading the first part; I actually enjoyed the last part of the book.
I was intrigued by the mystery of who the whistle blower was and whether Jamie would finally begin to tell the truth. Her loyalty deserves a halo but her lack of common sense was ridiculous.
I am not sure how the public will accept the very obvious connection between this story and the Monica Lewinsky affair.
It did not bother me and I smiled ever so often recognizing the obvious twists in the story to keep us thinking about the Lewinsky and Clinton affair complete with the blue dress on the cover.
Of course, there were sufficient differences to make it in the end a fictional story of its own making. My final comment is that I do not believe I would recommend this book to others.
I must admit that it does not depart from how it was described by the publisher so I got just what I asked for when I signed up to read it and I also am not sorry that I took the time to finish reading it, but it was not a memorable read and does not reach anywhere near the level of good writing or excellent plot that I require before recommending a book to a friend.
I would rate it as equivalent to one of the Harlequin Romance books I read years and years ago as I entered menopause and needed a boost.

When the staffers are furloughed during a budget impasse forced by President Rutland, Jamie has a chance encounter with him that sets her on a path to scandal and total devastation.
Channeling Monica Lewinsky and tabloid headlines, the character of Jamie is both naive and star-struck when she imagines that the affair is love rather than the older powerful man taking advantage of her for his own selfish purposes.
This is a perfect book for summer and light beach reading though the themes of adultery and the fall of the famous man are extremely weighty but far too commonplace in our society.
She is the seduced, not the seducer, and the novel makes it very clear that society is both titallated by and unforgiving of the victim, the other woman, the discarded one.
Or immoral -- the definition of. But its very veracity. Of course, we all KNOW what this was really about, right? Why he picked her, why she did it.
May 06, Books rated it it was amazing Shelves: I adored both books and knew for certain that I was going to love this one. And indeed I did. McLaughlin and Kraus are undoubtedly a superb team.
The First Affair once again showcases how well these two ladies bring their characters to life and into the hearts of their readers.
It mattered more to me that I could understand how she felt and why she did what she did. The realism of this story is incredible, but I was drawn into it for all the different ways it made me feel.
Alongside Jamie I also fell in love with Greg even though I knew from the start their relationship was headed for a bad end. THAT is what ultimately drew me in — the many layers which brought home a different perspective on loyalty, healing, and family.
I liked how every single character played a pivotal role in the storyline, and how Jamie grew throughout the experience. I think the ending — though somewhat heartbreaking — was a good end to a really magnificent story.
Oct 06, Dana rated it it was ok. I wanted to put it into the return bin outside the library the minute I finished. The book was 8 days late because I had very little time, and perhaps not much inclination, to get it done, and yet I wanted to finish it.
Not much has changed since then, except for the increased presence of social media, texting, twittering,etc. Basically, the presentation of the novel was just stupid, shallow and contrived, certainly NOT riveting, and yet I did need to get to the end.
I would have liked to read more about the impeachment trial, which took up less than a sentence in the book. Do not waste time or money on this one.
I would rather read a true account of what happened, than this fact based novel that had promise, but failed, to deliver. Sep 08, Kirsten rated it liked it.
This is just okay - better than most chick lit out there, at least. I got fed up with the distractions of the weird family dynamic and thought there could have been less of that Also - the timeline was a major problem.
The main story was clearly set in the present day - cell phones, hour news, Facebook, plus mentions of Mad Men and reading Gone Girl.
But in the epilogue, she mentions Weiner and Spitzer and all those sex scandals that have This is just okay - better than most chick lit out there, at least.
But in the epilogue, she mentions Weiner and Spitzer and all those sex scandals that have happened since the supposed action of the book.

Luckily for me, Atria books kindly obliged, and sent me a galley via NetGalley! It is early in Poland when Mrs. Bromley and Jennifer come to buy antiques for her business in London.

With a war on and most men being drafted, Howard Oil Supply Company has no salesmen left. So daughter Jean hits the road and does not make one sale.
She finally gets one tentative sale with Ida Lupino,s first film. The part was actually cast for her mother and Ida went along to the audition with her mother who was around 35 years old although still a girlish type.
When Allan Dwan saw Ida he said she was perfect for the part and so 19 year old Lupino got the part as the young girl who seduces the older man.
A fast moving film for the early ,s Dwann directs his cast of established english actors with his customary adeptness,drawing a sparkling performance from Lupino as the skittish Anne who seduces in a nice clean english way the middle aged author Brian Arnold Riches with support from Diana Napier as the slightly disaproving mother Mrs Merton.
There are some wearying comic interludes from the popular music hall artist at the time, Harry Tate as the Major,and the 2 gorgeous Blackburn sisters make a small appearance but it is Lupino who sparkles throughout the film, contrasting greatly to the roles that she would play in Hollywood in later years.
I saw this picture at a private screening, but would recommend it to anyone who would want to witness how Lupino developed into one of the greatest, but sadly underrated actresses of the ,s.
