The sizzling second installment of the White House series, by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans.
We fell in love during the campaign.
The stakes were high.
Reputations could have been ruined.
Scandal hovered over us like a cloud.
Now the man I love is the President of the United States of America.
And its not my vote he is after.
He wants it all.
My heart. My body. My soul.
He wants me by his side.
In the White House.
Normalcy will be gone from my life, privacy forgotten.
I am only twenty three. I just wanted to play a part in history. But it seems like history wasn't done with me. The part where I lost my heart to Matthew Hamilton? It was only the beginning…
It wasn't bad, I just felt that it glossed over some events and skipped over others, so I didn't have the depth that I was hoping for.
Matt had reasons for not wanting Charlotte to live the life that he watched his mother lead. Charlotte was arfaid of the scandal of their relationship. There was the build up to both, but I felt the resolution was just sort of tossed out there, and that it was never dealt with. At least, it was not really fully dealt with in a way that I believed. I do get it, he missed her and that changes perspective, but I never was totally on board.
I did enjoy the writing, I liked the glimpse into their life in the White House. I liked Matt and Charlotte, and I wanted them to work out and I was glad they got their happily ever after, as they deserved it.
The book made me wish Matt Hamilton was really the president of this country, made me believe that he really could do things, and make things happen. I liked him. I liked that there was no real drama with them, that the author allowed their relationship and them working it out together, to be the focus.
This book left me wanting more, both because I wanted to spend more time with them, but also because I wanted to get a little better idea what drove them, and why he made the decisions he did.
I do recommend this book, overall.
Charlotte seemed to have a personality switch with an 80 year old woman. I can't say specifics because I don't want to give spoilers away but if I heard her refer herself and Matthew as certain titles let's say once more time I may have planned an assassination myself, of Charlotte that is. She turned into a prude and just totally took away from what could have been an amazing read. I loved her in Mr. President but in Commander In Chief I just wanted her to go away. Far far away.
Matthew I still loved and while he at times as well made me want to slap him upside the back of the head, I still enjoyed his character. I wanted more of his POV I needed more since he was now Commander In Chief I wanted it to be more about him.
The writing in this one just wasn't on the same level as Mr. President. Too many issues were rushed passed or swept under the rug and I wanted completion more than once. I have loved Katy Evans ever since I read Real, but this one just wasn't up to the level I have come to expect from her. Overall it was okay but could have been so much better.
He looks devilishly handsome.
His hair is combed back and oh, how I love every chiseled inch of his face. He’s the first to move, prying his hands from his pockets, eyes flaring, inhaling visibly—his inhale stretching the fabric of that black tux.
Disbelief and a punch of longing to have all of this man, his love and his name and his babies, hits me as he approaches. I’m gazing at him walk to me down the hall of the White House residence, both of us ready to attend a social dinner. My first public event with him.
I need a moment, or a thousand moments, to adjust to this new role.
Matt continues advancing—with every step his eyes drinking me in, his lips curling in a seductive, appreciative smile.
“You ready?” He stretches out his hand.
I nod and look at that hand—the hand I’ve held so many times, and that held me. I slide my fingers down the length of his, and he grips them and leads me down the staircase with him.
