Kennedy. Americans have long been fascinated by the rumored love affair between Jackie Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. With Bobby and Jackie they will finally get more than a glimpse of their emotional and romantic connection. An open secret for decades among family insiders, their affair began as a result of their shared grief over the assassination of the president in 1963 and lasted until Bobby began his run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1968.

    " It wasn't a big surprise to read that Bobby and Jack were.lovers; it did surprise me though that their liaison was not secretive and that Jacky had been involved with many more man then I had thought. A.juicy book but not more; nice to read once "

    " Doesn't everyone need to read a pure guilty pleasure once in a while? From the resounding silence, I would guess that the answer is no, and it's just me who sees books like this on the library shelf, looks around, plucks it off, hides it under a pile of more "worthy" books and scurries to the check-out desk praying that the librarian doesn't give me a look of "have you lost your mind" while stamping the due date in the back. What can I say? I'm shallow. On the negative side, much of this ground has been plowed before--some of it repeatedly. On the positive side, there were a number of rather famous people quoted who talked as if the affair between Jackie Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy was not a big secret. According to the author, the two Kennedys turned to each other in their grief after the assassination of John Kennedy and they continued their affair until Bobby made the decision to run for President in 1968. If even half of this is true, it's easy to see why Jackie Kennedy decided to marry Aristotle Onassis less than six months after Bobby's assassination. Also on the positive side, the book is short--about 200 pages. So if you have a beach trip planned and you are interested in the intimate, and I mean, intimate details of the lives of the famous, this might be the book for you. Now I just have to get it back into the library--I'm thinking under both a bulky sweater and the cover of darkness. "

    " Great story that will leave you with no doubt in your mind that Jackie and Bobby were each other's true loves in a world of meaningless relationships "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 2/10/2014

    " just couldn't resist reading this new heymann... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 2/7/2014

    " Because I am such a Kennedyphile, I will soak up anything that may add insight, or give me a glimpse into their lives...this read like an extended Vanity Fair article. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 1/31/2014

    " Learned new info on the Kennedy family. Didn't know they were an "item". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karis North | 1/16/2014

    " A big "MEH" for this one. I thought there might be some insight into the two most fascinating characters in the Kennedy saga. Instead, it was all gossip and innuendo strung together into a book form. I felt slimy just reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Belinda Pelletier | 1/14/2014

    " This books was sensationalized gossipy trash. It made me feel dirty reading it - like the worst sort of tabloid. I didn't finish it and am mad at myself for buying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 11/29/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 M | 10/9/2013

    " A guilty pleasure, although from the description of what supposedly went on between Bobby and Jackie, I'm probably not the one who should be feeling guilty... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lina | 9/1/2013

    " A little dull, and far less salacious than I'd anticipated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pkelly516 | 7/13/2013

    " Easy read, better if you grew up during 'Camelot' and in Massachusetts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cheston | 1/24/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgina | 3/9/2012

    " It was a good book but there was some confusing stuff in it like Jackie and Bobby want each other but then they stopped, it's like I cant figure out why the affair was longer then if they stopped doing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Golda Gabriel | 8/16/2011

    " I couldn't put the book down. I've read a. Lot of Kennedy books, but this one just felt real to me. I can understand how it could happen. Shared grief and just utter loyalty to each other. U have a better respect for Bobby after reading this. He was definitely the Kennedy behind "The Kennedy" "
