Mr. President (White House #1) by Katy Evans
He’s won the hearts of millions. But is he willing to lose his?
I met the president’s son when we were both young. Matthew Hamilton was handsome, polished, and intelligent. I’d never met a guy like him.
He promised me that he’d never run for president. I promised that if he did, I’d be by his side.
Three terms later, an invitation to join Matthew Hamilton’s campaign is the most exhilarating opportunity I’ve ever experienced. I’m determined to make a difference; he is determined to win.
Focused on his goal, Matt is steadfast, ruthless, and disarming. All eyes are on him and his popularity is surging. But soon, the next possible president of the United States is possessing me in more ways than one—and despite the risks, I’m helpless to resist.
We’re stealing touches, stealing moments, and stealing away at night. But our chemical connection is quickly becoming dangerously combustive, putting not only my heart, but Matt’s chance at the presidency on the line.
Winning will take everything. Walking away will be the hardest thing of all.
OMG! This is what I was after reading this book. Everything is entirely flawless. The drama, the characters, the plot line, and the entire world building was perfect. This is my first political romance book I have ever read and boy did it set the bar high for future ones.
What I love about the book: everything. The most awesome thing was the plot line. It just flowed there was no drag, no unnecessary drama, and the politics were accurate (kudos for the author doing her homework!).
The characters. Don’t let me even get started. Matt is just amazing, there is something about him, and even when you read his POVs you can see how great of a person he is. Sure he is alpha man, but that does not ruin the story. Aaand Charlotte was another amazing heroine. The way she stood up for her country (*spoiler) she even walked away from Matt knowing the scandals it would cause). She is passionate, driven, spunky, and a really cool person. You also notice some of her inner struggles in keeping the relationship secret but you know what love can conquer most things
The romance was perfect. There was chemistry among the characters, but it took time for things to build up and that’s what I like. The book is spread over many months, so it actually takes them a few months to get together and start the process of falling in love The characters knew each other before doing it. It wasn’t a sudden bang bang whom. The passion was real.
Now for the parts I didn’t like (tiny)) : I wished there was more Matt POV. It would be nice to see his thoughts more. Charlotte was primarily narrating the novel, little more Matt pls.
Surprises: The age difference didn’t bother me much. I thought of them as two people the same age based on how they act The scandalous love story didn’t seem as cliche and boring It was nicely spread out and they were extremely careful (duh!) and avoided slip ups (yay!).
