Title: Beltway Betrayers (The Beltway # 2)
Author: Taylor Marsh
Stars: 3 1/2 out of 5
I'm not sure how I feel about this book. This story can be read as a stand alone novel but just like the first one many times I felt like I wasn't reading a complete story. There is a massive amount of information dumped into the readers left right off at the beginning.
There are way to many characters to keep up with readers might need to write down the names just to keep them all straight.
Taylor Marsh switches from different points of view though out the chapters which might also confused readers due to the large cast.
This book isn't going to be for everyone. I was told it was a mystery when in fact it is more psychological thriller. With the beating and rape of women.
This story has strong women but not enough to overcome the cumbersome story that doesn't seem to work.

Taylor Marsh lives in the Beltway area of Washington D.C. She is a former Broadway performer and beauty queen who was the Relationship Consultant for LA WEEKLY, then the nation’s top alternative newsweekly. Author of The Hillary Effect and The Sexual Education of a Beauty Queen, Taylor turns to sexy fiction for the first time with her adventure romance, Below the Beltway.
Says Marsh, “For over 10 years I worked in the dating, sex and relationship fields, so combining everything I learned into my first fictional adventure romance was a blast and a true labor of love. After all the years I spent advising people on how to date, marry and have great sex, it was exciting to tell a very modern story of a woman in her late 30s working to get the wrong guy out of her life, just as Mr. Right comes along.”
She adds, “It’s my first fiction, so it became an adventure for me, introducing a liberated female character who’s working out how to fit a man into her successful life. Today, that’s reality for a lot of women in their thirties.”
Taylor was profiled in The Washington Post and The New Republic for her coverage of Hillary Clinton during the 2008 Democratic primary season. She has been a contributor to The Huffington Post since 2006, and has written for Washington, D.C.’s The Hill, as well as for U.S. News & World Report and for Zócalo Public Square in Los Angeles. Taylor has also been interviewed by Al Jazeera Media Network, The New York Times, BBC, CNN, MSNBC, and C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, among other outlets.
