I didn’t expect this book to be so good. It was extremely fast paced with some thrilling political intrigue and a beautiful love story. Now I can’t even remember why I was skeptical about reading this 😂😂😂 Such a fun read. Can’t wait to read the next one. ( )

When I saw this book a couple of months ago I expected something action-packed, full with scheming, and on that front it delivered. What I also thought is that it would be overly sexual, with BDSM scenes and whatnot, and I just didn’t feel up for that kind of book. And no, I haven’t read any reviews beforehand.

But surprisingly there was none of that. The action and the romance was perfectly balanced, I didn’t feel it was too much on either front. There were very few sexy scenes, which were pretty vanilla, but somehow the author managed to sell the love with a lot of sweetness.

Ethan and Jack’s love burned slowly. At first they were just friends, which was not allowed between the President and a Secret Service agent.



Somewhere along the way Ethan fell in love with Jack, and he just couldn’t stay away despite the rules. He tried though, but it was pointless.

Who the hell wants to be President? It’s a pretty lonely existence.



Jack just wanted someone to connect to. Little did he know that the one man he befriended was actually gay and pining after him. And what he didn’t realize either, is that he too was already head over heels in love with Ethan.

I won’t spoil what comes after. :D



We saw the events mostly from Ethan’s and Jack’s point of view, but there were some added bonus POV’s here and there from the secondary characters, which was awesome. I hope we’ll see more about the agents.

With the amount of political stuff, I can imagine this story required a lot of research. And even though I’m not American and don’t know much about their government, other than what I saw on TV, I didn’t feel confused. But there will be some readers, who might feel a bit overwhelmed by it.


I felt engaged with the story completely, and I loved figuring out who’s who, and what will happen next. I’m not saying I was surprised when a certain someone has been revealed as the bad guy, but still, I loved, loved, loved this story. :) ( )

I picked this one up randomly off a recommendation list and was blown away by it. Fantastic! I've gotten away from political drama books recently as they often are dry, without a lot of character growth, but this balanced fact progression with real characters extremely well in my opinion. Highly recommended! Can't wait for another! ( )

This is one of those books where the hype of it all scared me and actually put me off reading it for quite some time. And while on the one hand, yes I wish I had read it earlier, on the other, at least I know have all the books to read, one after another. Which, to be honest, in this case I think is a bonus.

At times I felt the book drag a little. However, it was all necessary background, information and either character or storyline building and therefore essential to making this the well-rounded story it was. And there is a point where you simply cannot stop reading, you have to keep going to find out what happens.

The characters feel as if I could book my trip to D.C. and find them in the White House (I won't comment further lol, as it could get me into trouble). They are real, multi-dimensional and fantastic men, as are all the surrounding people in the story. The villains feel like "real" baddies, not some paper cut-out copy. The information regarding the workings around the POTUS also feel realistic, however, as an Aussie, I have no idea if they are or not. But if not, the author definitely made it feel as if they were.

All of the above lead me to my 5 star rating. As I've said in the past, any story where the MCs and storyline stay with me above and beyond the reading of the book deserves this kind of rating. And while there might be the complaints that a gay love affair could never happen in such a position? Well, isn't that what reading romance is about? Suspense of disbelief, and even a glimmer of hope of the possibility that we might get to a time where it is possible in the future. ( )

Great read

I enjoyed Ethan and Jack’s story. It was a bit out of my normal style of story, and I’ll admit some of the political aspects were over my head, but not enough to ruin the story for me. I look forward to reading more. ( )
