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 "
