Karen Schroeder made the choice to be a politician. Her local success has caught the eyes of her party and she’s suddenly thrust into the national stage. She knows how to play the game and exactly who she needs to be, even if it’s not who she really is.
Sarah Lindstrom has never questioned her feelings, even when they made her believe her girlfriend would say yes to her proposal instead of breaking up with her. When she sees Karen Schroeder campaigning, the rush of attraction is undeniable. Sarah knows she’s been wrong before, but her feelings for Karen overwhelm any apprehension for this woman who’s trapped in the closet.
As the relationship grows, Sarah learns love can be the painful when the one you love can only be herself with the door is closed. More importantly, her love of Karen could cost her everything she’s worked for. Can love bloom when hidden in the dark?

The Politician’s Heart (Growing Strong Book 3) by Michel Prince
Narrator: Kat Maxwell
I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.
The narrator by Kat Maxwell is amazing. I loved seeing her name on the book for narrator. She does a great job voicing the characters. She is one of my favorite narrators for audio books.
This book I have to admit I was not sure I would enjoy. I am not a person who reads F/F and so I was like meeeehhhhh about it BUT I love Michel’s stories soooooooo…. I absolutely loved Sarah and Karen as a couple. I admit I can’t wait for book 4. Mandy and Ashton, after watching the sexual chemistry these two had for each other but that is for another day.
Sarah is the mom of the group. She is the one who wears their heart on her sleeve. She is the one who will do anything and everything for her Mafia Family, Lover, students and their families, and her family in general. When Sarah’s hearts broken, we feel her desire to be with someone but at the same time she wont settle for anyone like Mandy. She has lived her life out and does not understand why anyone would need to be in the closet. But not everyone has the amazing support system Sarah has.
Karen is the state representative who is living a double life. She has her best friend Ashton as her “Beard” while she navigates a career as a politician….wait….as a conservative Republican politician. When her campaign manager tells her she has a good chance to win a US Senate seat, She jumps. The very last thing she expects is to meet the love of her life while manning a booth at a county fair.
Sarah and Karen have to navigate A LOT due to Karen’s Closet status and the fact she is a person in the public spotlight. Seeing Karen want to be her true self all the while fearing the loss of her political career and family weighs heavily on her. With Ashton’s steady hand plus Sarah’s loving guidance and understanding, they learn to navigate things together.
I admit I love where the book ended in the epilogue. I hope that storyline continues in book 4. I would love to know what happens to the campaign. I also admit I am glad I did read the story. The love between these ladies was wonderful. Seeing the respect between the ladies was amazing.
