The First Affair: A Novel - 'Emma McLaughlin',  'Nicola Kraus' I wanted to like this book. I've wanted to like all the author's books and yet I haven't. 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. It seemed to be a fictionalized version of the Clinton/Lewinsky affair right down to secret recordings. Mostly it was just a cautionary tale on why you don't get involved with married people, especially those in powerful places and you never EVER know who you can trust with your deepest darkest secrets. I didn't find any of the characters likeable but that's not really a complaint, just an observation. The characters don't always need to be likeable for me to like a book but I think it may have helped this one along.
