*BOOK REVIEW* Off the Record- K.A Linde

So I am totally in love with this book and I definitely recommend putting it on your TBR list. Off the Record by K.A Linde was a suit and tie romance that I fell in love with.


synopsisLiz Dougherty has no idea a single question is about to change her life.

Her first big reporting assignment for her North Carolina college newspaper has her covering a state senator’s impromptu press conference. Brady Maxwell may have everything it takes to be a politician—a winning pedigree, devastating good looks, a body made to wear suits—but his politics rub Liz the wrong way. When Liz’s hard-hitting question catches the upstart senator off-guard, it impresses Hayden Lane, Liz’s editor who feels she’s headed for a promising career as a reporter.

But Liz is also headed into a secret romance with Brady that could destroy both their ambitions. Though he’s a bachelor, potential voters might frown on Brady cozying up to a reporter. And Liz isn’t sure sneaking around is enough for her—especially when things between her and Hayden might be less platonic than she thought.

Sleek, sexy, and smart, Off the Record ventures into a high-stakes campaign and an even higher-stakes affair to answer the question: When politics and love collide, can there ever be a winner?


Politics are a cutthroat sport without the added bonus of emotional relationships. No to soon after beginning Off the Record by K A Linde, I fell in love with the driven personalities of Liz and Brady.  Liz is the driven college journalist that strives to have a big break. I can relate to this because I am majoring in Communications in university and it is a very driven community. Brady Maxwell, oh Brady. Suit, tie and a Senator with charm and charisma what more could you ask for in a male lead.

Off the Record is the first political romance I have ever read. It was amazing, from start to end. Liz and Brady’s characters felt really and authentic, although not everyone is in their positions the characters were still indefinably relatable. The narrative explored how politics can create, rectify and destroy a person’s life. I loved how the characters played of each other and the narrative flowed at ease. The strong will of Liz is what drew me so much further into the story than I originally thought I would be. The scenes are shaped with striking linguistic language appropriate to a college journalist and senator. The romantic scenes showed heart and sole into a life of politics that is rarely seen from the public’s point of view. I think Linde, did an astonishing job at creating an equilibrium of how to portray characters especially a politician in the public eye, but also in the private comforts.

Overall, the heart and sole of K A Linde’s writing brought power and drive into a narrative of a college journalist and Senator. I loved the narrative; the characters ambitions and feelings created heart and the language of the written word drove a home run into a beautiful novel. I rated it a 5-Lit Love because it had me turning the pages till the very end and I can’t wait for the second book in the series ‘On The Record.’
