"A Perfect Ambition," by Dr. Kevin Leman & Jeff Nesbit

"A Perfect Ambition," by Dr. Kevin Leman & Jeff Nesbit
It's time for Will to forge his own path.
But the force that drives him to greatness could also destroy him--and his family.

As the firstborn son of an old and powerful family, William Jennings Worthington VI knows what it's like to be under pressure. Groomed from birth with the relentless message that he was destined for greatness, Will has always pushed himself to succeed--nearly as much as his never-satisfied financial tycoon father pushes him. Becoming CEO of the world's largest and most adventuresome oil company seems the next logical step on the success ladder. But when circumstances turn, Will finds himself staring down a road that leads to Capitol Hill. Can he trade the board room for the Senate floor? Or will family secrets keep him from his destiny?


Where do I start with this book?  I am so glad I chose to review this book despite it being about politics and big corporations; which are totally not my normal subjects of choice.

This is a meaty book, and it's one you will be sucked into right away and one you need to pay attention too, as all sorts of things happen and you have a feeling these things will come back and bite someone in the butt later on in the book....and it generally does.

The cast of characters we well thought out and presented.  One thing I enjoyed about this book it was up to date and mentioned things we would all remember.  Yes this is fiction, but it could be real...

This is the first book in The Worthington Destiny series and I WILL be reading the next one, as I need to know what happens next.  Although there were loose ends to tie up at the end of this book, It did answer a lot of questions that you do form in your mind throughout the book, so I actually enjoyed the ending.  Some books have a tendency to leave things up in the air, don't they?

Stars out of 5 : 5 I really, really enjoyed this book, it was a page turner and you needed to know what happens next.  There was also some interesting information about birth order secrets in the back of the book that are well worth reading.  I am the eldest of three children and I could see the traits of our birth order in what was written.  As I said before this book is well worth reading........

  2. It must be good for you to give it a 5....not my normal type of book either, but if the library has it I might give it a try.
