♡Review♡ Capital Encounters by Dawn Wright
When a promotion to junior recruiter affords her the chance to move across the bridge into DC, Summer—a free bird—quickly sheds her loner lifestyle after she meets, Emily, a class act whose heart is still tied to her ex-husband; Brooke, a career-driven woman looking for love who wants to have it all; and Amber, the fearless pianist who makes a living off her flings.
Summer’s life begins to go as planned, until she meets a hot Cuban at a party who will change her life forever. What starts off as a “harmless affair” with Ruben Sotolongo, turns out to be a perilous situation as she struggles with her temptation to play with fire. Soon, Summer realizes that she must walk away from him before it’s too late. At the same time, Summer’s friends slowly find the tide turning against them. Brooke will have to face a deal breaker after finding love; after months of suffering, Emily’s chance at healing is threatened by an impediment least likely of all places; and when Amber accidentally betrays someone dear to her and underestimates the personality of a client, she realizes that her flings may not exactly be all fun and games. Will they make it out of the turmoil bruised and battered or stronger than ever?
♡Sexy, edgy, dramatic and smoothly written.♡
♡Four different women, four stories, one book.♡
Author Dawn Wright takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions along with four fictional women and I'm damn sure that every reader will have at least one of them to relate to. She has brought us a book revolving around the lives of four very different women, each one of which is haunted by her own demons.
At first I was a bit skittish to read "Capital Encounters" as I am not a fan of books with so many lead characters, but it came out to be great, it was beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. This book is about four ordinary women who have made some foolish mistakes and stupid decisions in life. All of them have different definitions of love. The main characters- Summer, Amber, Emily and Brooke had completely different personalities but nevertheless, they sticked together.
Summer- Job recruiter during the day, lover at night.
Amber- Piano Teacher during the day, sleeps for money at night.
Brooke- Wedding planner during the day, romantic girlfriend at night.
Emily- Third grade teacher during the day, distraught ex-wife at night.
Capital Encounters was a perfect blend of angst, laughter, sass and hotness. This book made me feel so many emotions from happy to sad to frustrated to laughing my ass out.
So all in all Capital Encounters was refreshing and unique and I had great time reading it. I highly recommend this book.

This was Dawn's first debut novel and she did a tremendous job. She has a good hold over storytelling. It's like she fills life in the fictional characters. The best part of her writing was the jumps in time and the switching between the lead characters.
