From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Katy Evans comes a sizzling new contemporary romance.
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.
Matt Hamilton can be my President any day!
4.5 stars! Wow, who knew reading about the political arena and the presidential election could be so sexy and fascinating!! I would swear that Katy Evans has been a part of mainstream politics to have written a story so complex and detailed on the inner workings of a political campaign and one man's race for the White House.
Matt Hamilton is America's golden boy. His father had been president and was well loved and respected until his life was cut short in an unsolved shooting. Now he plans to fulfill his father's wishes of Matt following him into the White House.
Charlotte Wells has spent her life on the outskirts of the political arena with her father being a Senator. She had no aspirations for a career in politics until Matt Hamilton decides to run for President and he wants her on his campaign team. This could be her chance to find that one thing in her life that she'll look back on later as the one thing that truly made a difference.
Working for Matt could pose a challenge though, as she's had a crush on him ever since she was eleven years old and he and his father, the President, came to dinner at her house. Now is her chance to get over her silly child's crush and prove that she can accomplish great things as part of his team.
Katy weaves a masterful tale of a young woman navigating the grueling world of politics all while trying to stem her constant attraction to Matt Hamilton. And Matt battles to figure out how to have Charlotte in his life, knowing that ultimately he will choose the Presidency over any woman. He saw how he and his mother took a backseat to his father's career and he would never wish that on any woman, especially not someone he cares as deeply for as he does Charlotte.
But these two can't stay away from each other, the flame they carry for each other burns way too brightly to be ignored or extinguished. What is ultimately going to be the most important thing? Their feelings for each other, or Matt's chance to make a huge difference in the world? To Charlotte, the decision is clear as day, even though it will be the most selfless and painful decision she'll ever make in her life.
If he is elected President, what decision will Matt make? We won't find out until Commander In Chief releases in January.
I was deeply impressed with Katy's clean style of writing. Her unique way of laying out for the reader the thoughts and emotions of both Charlotte and Matt had me glued to the story, immersing me right into their every feeling. The story flows so smoothly that before I knew it I was turning the page and that was it! I was so bummed!! I can't wait to find out what is going to happen next. What decisions are these two intriguing people going to make? How will they make their relationship work if Matt Hamilton becomes the next President? Or will they both make sacrifices for the good of the country? I need to know!!
This book! Oh my gosh, this book! I cannot properly explain how in love I am with this book. I was so excited for the release from the very start. She absolutely did an amazing job writing this book. I hardly know or care anything about politics but I think she did well with making this seem so real! January is going to feel like a freaking year away. I just don't think I can wait another second to finish this story! I loved it so much!
I really hate cliffhangers for so many reasons. This book is slow. Had I known there was a cliffhanger I probably would not have purchased it.
