Product Description

A second chance romance set in the political intrigue of Washington DC.

She holds his darkest secrets…He is her deepest regret.
Teague Roberts is a Supreme Court nominee on the fast track to the nation's highest legal job. As the best friend of the President's husband, he's a favored son in Washington, and a man used to getting everything he wants. But Teague also hides a secret, and it could explode his nomination, as well as the image he's spent years crafting.

Deanna Forbes is Washington's hottest new investigative reporter, and Teague's ex-fiancee. Her history with the only man she's ever loved is complicated and filled with remorse. When she's assigned to report on his nomination, Teague knows things won't end well. Deanna could topple his house of cards.

As the confirmation hearings heat up, and sparks fly between the former lovers, they must both decide what matters more--the job or the person, ambition or heart. And when a delicate dance toward reconciliation begins, more secrets will be revealed, old betrayals will be unearthed, and two fractured souls will have one last chance at forever. In the city where deception burns bright, will Teague and Deanna rekindle their love, or flame out once and for all?

Teague and Deanna were in love and engaged but Deanna’s family pushed her to break it off with him. Teague was from the wrong side of town with different skin color from them. This sends their lives in 2 different directions until one day, they both end up in DC and cross paths again. Teague is being nominated by the President for Supreme Court decision and Deanna is the new reporter assigned to cover it. Deanna is the only person that knows all of Teague’s secrets. This was a phenomenal journey for second chance love. There is so much hurt between Teague and Deanna. Can he forgive? Will she forgive herself? This is all happening as his dream of becoming a Supreme Court justice is within his grasp. So many secrets, so many political games, all keeping you tied to this incredible story. Loved every heart pounding, sexy, passionate moment. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from Rach Lawrence Books - Ms. Laurence's absolute best book 1 May 2017

Review originally posted on Rach Lawrence Books.

*I was provided a copy of SCOTUS by the author in exchange for an honest review. I am not compensated for my honest opinion.* (But I loved this book so much I purchased my own copy as soon as it was released.)

If you’re looking for a romance you can really sink your teeth into, look no further than Selena Laurence’s SCOTUS. This Powerplay novel is a standalone political romance that truly packs a punch, dealing with some serious current issues like racism and political scandals and featuring an interracial couple. It’s an emotional second-chance romance that will keep you turning the pages right up to the end.

Teague Roberts has had his eye on becoming a Supreme Court Justice since he was a little kid growing up in a neighborhood filled with gangs and violence. All his life he’s been trying to get out of the shadow of his upbringing, but he’ll never really be able to forget where he’s from. Just as he’s on the cusp of getting everything he’s ever wanted, a blast from his past shows up and threatens to ruin it all.

Deanna Forbes was once engaged to Teague, but now she’s assigned to report on him as the president’s Supreme Court nominee. Her boss wants her to find a scandal, but Teague appears squeaky clean on the outside. She’s the only person who knows his darkest secret and could ruin his entire career. Deanna already has sins of the past to atone for. Despite having never stopped loving Teague, she’ll never be able to forgive herself for what she did to him twelve years ago.

The way the author handled the racial issues in this book was both heartbreaking and brilliant. The reader gets both perspectives, with Deanna having been raised by parents who wouldn’t accept a black man for their son-in-law and Teague struggling to overcome every racial roadblock thrown in front of him.

Teague’s character was so complex I couldn’t help but love him right from the start. On the outside, he was a successful attorney wearing power suits and working eighty hours a week. On the inside, he was still the kid who grew up in a rough neighborhood and was used to defending himself, sometimes for no other reason than the color of his skin. No power suit would change the perception of some people, and throughout the story Teague had to accept this and find ways to overcome it.

Deanna was intriguing on her own as well. It wasn’t long after letting go of Teague the first time that she realized it was the mistake of a lifetime. She spent the next twelve years trying to make up for it any way she could. And once Teague was back in her life, she was going to do whatever she could to right her past wrongs.

The emotion in this book was off the charts, and it ran the gamut of heartfelt to heartbreaking and everything in between. I was so emotionally connected to these characters that I hurt for them and could feel every bit of their pain. Even a secondary character brought me to tears several times.

I have read quite a few books by Ms. Laurence and truly enjoy her writing, but this one is her absolute best. The present-day issues and emotional journey will stay with me for a long time to come.
5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting! 14 June 2017

Selena Laurence has done it again. Setting another of her exciting Powerplay novels in the high stakes atmosphere of Washington, D. C. where even a hint of scandal can destroy the lifelong dream a highly qualified candidate for the Supreme Court. This is a steep and crooked roller coaster track leading to a rocky second chance romance that explores the highly volatile subjects of race and the taboo of interracial dating. Teague and Deanna come face to face 12 years after she caved to pressure from her wealthy, white and deeply prejudiced parents and walked away from the man she loved. Her defection left him broken and bitter while Deanna has had to live with her guilt and her regret. Newly united, they face devastating and impossible consequences of those choices with a grace and dignity that I found especially riveting. It's a love story that is sinfully sexy, achingly poignant and beautifully color blind. Kudos to this amazing author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best yet in the series 3 May 2017

I am completely overwhelmed with this book. I thought initially that this would be another second chance at love story (and it is) but what i didn't expect was the beautiful stories that unravel behind both Teague and Deanna. Bravo to the author for accomplishing such a well executed novel! I love the series but I have to admit this is my most favorite yet. Looking forward to the other men in the Power Play group.
