Nothing original about this story....just pick up a newspaper in the Clinton's all a veiled attempt at Monica Lewinsky's story...Disappointing since they're other novels where much better. Skip it...and read some other book.

A good story but not a lot of depth.

This is a thinly veiled story on Monica Lewinsky and the events that happened in the mid-1990's when Lewinsky, a young intern at the time, had an affair with then US president Bill Clinton. These two writers border on plagirism and this is no page turner (like they adverstise on the cover), rather, it's a sad attempt to cash in on someone else's trauma and life altering mistakes. However, what it does showcase is how willingly some of our youth delve into these affairs without ever thinking it through and for that reason, I'd recommend it to college students who will inevitably fall in love with a mentor, professor or internship manager.
