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.

Jul 13, Elizabeth rated it really liked it. She was lonely and in a new town, and was beyond flattered that the President was hitting on her.
Read my full review at: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The First Affair is an entertaining and fast read, but lacks the substance and depth required for a novel with such a subject matter.
Luckily for me, Atria books kindly obliged, and sent me a galley via NetGalley! They also convey the sense of ruthlessness innately ingrained in the city, which they also showed startling well in The Nanny Diaries.
I definitely got a sense of why Jamie was attracted to the environment, and felt like she could succeed there. Emma and Nicola do a fantastic job of capturing both the painful nostalgia of what it feels like for Jamie to interact with a friend who represents the simplicity of college life, and how she now has to work harder to keep up with her new friends.
However, even with that in mind, I found it difficult to jive with Jamie and her overall mindset. She spends most of the book being profoundly needy and naive, in a way that made me wonder how she even managed to graduate from college.
I spent a lot of time mentally facepalming, whenever Jamie did or said something that was just startling naive.
And as a result, it not only undermined the story, it also undermined affair. I found it difficult to belive that the leader of the free world - horn dog that he is - would fall for someone who is so genuinely clueless about the world around her.
I think we want to see the psychosis and personalities involved, and just how people are driven to pursuing that affair.
Yes, Jamie has severe emotional issues related to the men in her life. I definitely wanted more. A Novel of Politics amusing and extremely entertaining.
There are a lot of hints and suggestions to how President Rutland is similar to our current commander-in-chief - e. It felt a little wrong.
The First Affair is a fun read, but there were some issues that prevented me from enjoying the book fully.
I would still recommend it for fans of NA and romance novels, but with some reservation. Aug 07, Jenny Lynn rated it liked it. Slight spoilers ahead so read at your own risk.
Thanks to the authors, Atria Books, and NetGalley. Even though this book made me wildly uncomfortable I spent most of my time reading half-yelling at Jamie which was fine when I was home alone but a little odd when I was in the break room at work.
Lots of weird looks my way, so thanks for that I though Slight spoilers ahead so read at your own risk.
Lots of weird looks my way, so thanks for that I thought it was interesting and a good, inside looks at the world of politics and scandal mostly the scandal part.
Never saw that coming in a million years. There were times when I wanted to slap every character in the book seriously, every one of them.
I hope someone eventually pressed charges against him. Though I was a little confused at the first mention of him because I thought he was a teenager like Jamie.
Only later did I figure out that he was older and therefore creeptastic and hate-worthy. If not then maybe that should be made a little more explicit.
It made thins a little confusing further down the line. Even though I hated the bad decisions she made, I could understand why she made them.
I mean, it must have been an incredibly heady thing to have one of the most powerful men in the world pay attention to you. You convince yourself that things can work out.
McLaughlin and Kraus are really good at creating real, believable characters who are human, make mistakes, and then try to piece their lives back together.
Even though the first act was a little slow, it was easy to read and easy to anticipate that things would soon start spiraling out of control.
And boy did they spiral. But then I kinda think it did have a sorta happy ending: Jamie did get to go to Venice after all.
Aug 25, Maggie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I devoured this book. I could not put my Kindle down and stayed up late to treasure this one.
The authors excel at showing how and why Gregory Rutland would be able to rise up to become President of the United States.
This character seemed to be that wise-cracking and charming but somewhat slick guy that many woman would find attractive. I was also strongly reminded of Bill Clinton.
The only point of contention I have with this book is that while there is barely a glance passed between the couple, the affair has begun.
I wonder if Jamie had not been sent to his office and seen him in the midst of a panic attack if anything would have happened.
Was he faking this panic attack to seem more vulnerable? The whole beginning of the affair seems somewhat fast and muddled to me, but again maybe that just lends to the blurry speed with which everything occurs.
We seldom think about the families of the big names in scandals, news and the tabloids. However, this book shows that the families, though they may know nothing about what is going on, is just as under scrutiny and attack as the major players.
I guess it speaks for the growth that Jamie undergoes through the whole situation. The First Affair would have been perfect for the short vacation that I am about to take.
You will be done with it quickly but may wind up neglecting your family just to see what happens next. I received a copy of this book in order to provide a review.
Jan 19, April rated it really liked it. Wow, it was really good! Characters that at first feel like they might be caricatures turn out 4.
The closest thing to a one dimensional character for me is the President himself Mostly what this book did is make me seriously rethink my attitudes and preconceptions about the Clinton-Lewinsky "affair" and realize again how quickly most of us were to place at least equal blame.
Yet, the girl becomes a national joke and the man is still universally respected and employed at high salaries. It made me examine not only my thoughts about this country and our media, but it made me take a good long look at myself.
PS - Fellow "Scandal" fans: Oct 06, Jane Thomson rated it liked it. I would have to agree with those on this comment list who feel that Jamie is a character who lacks maturity and insight.
However, I think that with maturity comes the wisdom of looking at the whole picture. There were so many times when the reader wanted to yell: Yet, she was young and her previous love affair had ended in disaster; her family life was close to being dysfunctional; her ability to I would have to agree with those on this comment list who feel that Jamie is a character who lacks maturity and insight.
Yet, she was young and her previous love affair had ended in disaster; her family life was close to being dysfunctional; her ability to make important decisions was far too dependent on the opinions of others.
She is a flawed human who desperately needs to feel loved The repercussions of her actions are widespread and painful.
I appreciate that the authors have made the reader cringe so often during the last half of the story. How totally humiliating such notoriety must be for those caught in such compromising situations.
Rather, for allowing themselves to indulge in such situations By the end, the reader feels that the young woman HAS grown and changed into an adult because of her experience.
There is a certain lack of fairness in the fact that a former president can still earn in the millions after such a travesty, but reality has shown us that this IS the case!
I would recommend this book to readers - especially for the second half. Aug 14, Nancy rated it liked it. I found the first half of this book uninteresting.
Jamie comes across as an immature character with a selfish outlook. The groping scenes with the President and her confession to her girl friends seem juvenile.
The second half of the book was better. Interoffice politics and jealousy combine to bring the affair into the open. The FBI and worse the newspapers get involved.
It is fast paced and interesting enough to keep you reading. The ending like the beginning is a disappointment.
The book, particularly the first half, is not particularly well written and the characters are stereotypes or, in the case of the President, flat.
I reviewed this book for Net Galley. May 17, Stacie rated it did not like it Shelves: I wanted to like this book.
Yet I keep reading them. Anyway, the story focuses on a young intern in DC during election season and the trouble she finds herself in when she has an affair with the President.
The one problem though was that he seemed to put himself in conspicuous places with her, i. On the whole, it is worth seeing.
