ARC Review: Red Blooded by Caitlin Sinead

Red_Blooded_final_cover (1)About RED BLOODED

Instead of eating ramen and meeting frat guys like most college freshmen, Peyton Arthur is on the campaign trail. Traveling with her mother, the Democratic pick for vice president, she's ordering room service, sneaking glances at cute campaign intern Dylan and deflecting interview questions about the tragic loss of her father. But when a reporter questions her paternity, her world goes into a tailspin.
Dylan left Yale and joined the campaign to make a difference, not keep tabs on some girl. But with the paternity scandal blowing up and Peyton asking questions, he's been tasked to watch her every move. As he gets to know the real Peyton, he finds it harder and harder to keep a professional distance.
When the media demands a story, Peyton and Dylan give them one—a fake relationship. As they work together to investigate the rumors about her real father and Peyton gets closer to learning the truth, she's also getting closer to Dylan. And suddenly, it's not just her past on the line anymore. It's her heart.

When this book was first offered up for review I was hesitant. I tend to HATE books about politics but I have to admit this was done well. 

Peyton’s mother is running for Vice President and this book follows Peyton as she tries to handle a big family secret, juggle her first year of college, and fall in love with one of the campaign interns all while dealing with being in the spotlight. Overall I did like the book because while politics was a focus it didn’t feel like it was being shoved down our throats. The author did a good job of finding the balance between putting in enough political stuff that the story made sense and the typical stuff that those of us that love the “new adult” genre look for without overwhelming the reader. 

While overall I did enjoy the story and it did suck me in and make me want to keep reading there were parts where the pacing felt off and it could have moved a little quicker.
