Whispers in Washington

by Jennifer Wilck 


GENRE: Contemporary Romance 



Naomi's life has been destroyed…

When Naomi Adelman’s crooked politician husband was arrested, her life, and that of her daughters, was destroyed. Divorced and rebuilding her life, Naomi is wiser, stronger, and determined not to let anyone hurt her or her family again. Her new life doesn’t include falling for her charming and good-looking neighbor.

Max bet everything and lost...

Max Bruder bet his entire career on the Adelman story and lost everything. So, he figures that karma has smiled down on him when Naomi moves in next door. This is his chance to revitalize his career. Except the closer he gets to her, the deeper he falls for her. And soon, the line between interview subject and lover blurs.

If they fall for each other, they may jeopardize their chance at a future.

When Max’s true motive is revealed, will Naomi be able to forgive him? And will Max be able to stop the whispers to protect her before it’s too late?



“Problem?” Max asked. They’d stopped in front of their building.

She turned so fast, her hair caught on the stubble at his jaw. “No.” She brushed the hair away from his cheek, the slight textured stubble rubbing against her palm and sending heat straight to her belly. His lips parted, and he leaned forward.

Would he kiss her? Did she want him to? She shouldn’t, she barely knew him, but her skin tingled, her breasts tightened and her breath came in short gasps.

He didn’t kiss her. Instead, he reached his free hand out and stroked the side of her head, smoothing her hair in place. “Yes,” he whispered.

She frowned, and tried to hide her disappointment. “Yes, what?”

“Your hair is as silky as I wondered.” He let his hand glide down her neck to her shoulder, and the contact brought out goose bumps. “Are you cold?” he asked.

She didn’t know how to answer. Was it okay for her to say, “no, I’m attracted to you?” Or should she say “yes”?

As if he understood her dilemma, he let go of her hand, slid his arm behind her shoulders, and drew her into the warmth of his body.

The man was a furnace and she wanted to groan in pleasure. They stood toe to toe, his hand running up and down her spine, her breasts pressed against his hard chest. Would he kiss her? Should she kiss him? Her brain short circuited and desire flooded through her. All she could do was focus on the warmth flooding her, the soothing sound of his humming something she couldn’t quite catch, and the zings of desire running throughout her body.



This book was such a cleverly entertaining contemporary romance read!!

This is the third book I’ve read from the incredible writer, Jennifer Wilck. I have thoroughly enjoyed her books and this one was no exception!!

I really liked this book!!  It was super cute, engaging, inspiring, entertaining, and captivating!!

I loved the main characters, Naomi and Max.  I really liked how relatable, likable, and personable the characters were.  Naomi was easy to connect to and sympathize with.  It wasn’t hard finding myself totally wrapped up with this character and practically biting my fingernails hoping it all works out for her and her daughters in the end this time. I really liked Naomi and Max together!  There was an instant spark between these two!  The attraction between them was strong and vastly described.  It built a little fast, but this story is on the shorter end and I understand the story didn’t have the time to loiter in the buildup.  Still greatly enjoyable and continues to remain on the realistic end.  However, on a side note, I wasn’t quite sure what to think of Max at first.  He was definitely charming and handsome, but with all those secrets and deception, I was so worried Naomi and the girls were going to get hurt.  No spoilers on the particular details of how that all turns out.  But I will say, Max does win me over in the end.  And on another side note, how interesting that both men in Naomi’s lives kept big secrets from her…  Perhaps that’s a guy thing…  I certainly hope not!!  And that there are still honest guys out there…  Or maybe in today’s culture we all pretty much have some sort of secrets; it just depends how far you dig…

Wilck writes her characters with depth, that have emotional baggage, are dealing with real-life struggles, and are working on over-coming personal obstacles.  She writes real-life characters that face real-world problems.  Which is one of the reasons I love her books, because I know when I read it, I will be able to easily connect with the characters and possibly even grow with the characters in the story.

In addition, another thing I love about Wilck’s writing, and this book only further makes that case, is her development of strong, smart, sassy, female lead characters.  Naomi, is that exact definition, she of course was significantly destroyed and distraught after her husband’s political scandal, but instead of completely hiding away forever, she comes back to D.C., reinvents herself, and rebuilds her life back up – even better this time.  That does not just take money and time – that takes strength, courage, determination, and perseverance.

I like that this book touches on many topics such as love, romance, dating, friendship, family, hard life lessons, second chances, perseverance, growth, compassion, empathy, integrity, determination, faith, hope, forgiveness, moving on, challenges, starting over, new beginnings, fresh starts, overcoming obstacles, and so much more!

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book is Book One of the Ticket to True Love Book Series.  This book can be read as a standalone.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it!  I think all contemporary romance readers and romance fans will like this book too!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

**Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**



Jennifer started telling herself stories as a little girl when she couldn’t fall asleep at night. Pretty soon, her head was filled with these stories and the characters that populated them. Even as an adult, she thinks about the characters and stories at night before she falls asleep or walking the dog. Eventually, she started writing them down. Her favorite stories to write are those with smart, sassy, independent heroines; handsome, strong and slightly vulnerable heroes; and her stories always end with happily ever after.

In the real world, she’s the mother of two amazing daughters and wife of one of the smartest men she knows. She believes humor is the only way to get through the day and does not believe in sharing her chocolate.

She writes contemporary romance, many of which feature Jewish characters in non-religious settings (#ownvoices). She’s published with The Wild Rose Press and all her books are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
