The Apprentice by [Pullen, Rick]
Tish Woodward is on a roll—her investigative reporting of a horrific crime has catapulted her into the national spotlight. But is it talent or just dumb luck? The rookie newspaperwoman dreads that the world will wake up and realize she lacks the depth and experience to take on her new assignment— President-Elect Derrick Templeton, a billionaire oil and real estate baron with no political experience.

Woodward navigates the labyrinth of Washington’s political world getting ever closer to the truth about Templeton, yet she doesn’t know whom to trust. This is Washington, of course, where motives are always suspect and allegiances change like the weather—all in pursuit of raw power. In this fast-paced, gripping tale of deception and deceit, Woodward realizes she is way over her head with nowhere to turn for help. She has taken on the most powerful and vengeful man who will ever occupy the White House—and he now has his sights clearly set on her.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  There is a good storyline and the charaters are formed in a great way.  It was not a super fast pace and could be easily stopped in between chapters if you have other things to do.  The ending was good but not something unique.  In all the author did a great job of putting out a full story.
