Can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

As the sole offspring of the Democratic United States president and his political operative wife, Trevor Moga was raised in an environment driven by the election cycle. During childhood, he fantasized about living in a made-for-television family, and as an adult, he rejected all things politics and built a highly successful career as far from his parents as possible.

Newly elected congressman Ford Hollingsworth is Republican royalty. The grandson of a revered governor and son of a respected senator, he was bred to value faith, family, and the goal of seeing a Hollingsworth in the White House.

When Trevor and Ford meet, sparks fly and a strong friendship is formed. But can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book! I love a good romance with a political twist to it. And this book had it.

Ford and Trevor I felt brought out the best in each other.

The son of the President of United States took a chance and opened to a person with totally different views than his own. They were pretty much night and day. Not wanting to do anything in politics he was really taking a leap with Ford.

And Ford…
I felt was your typical Republican. He had his core values, his faith, his political views.
But… He also had a secret that he was hiding from everyone.
That he was gay!
He tried not to give in to his sin. But he would have moments of weakness.

One night with Trevor and it didn’t take long there after for everything to crack. He really started to question himself about the way he thought about his views on things and his republican parties views.

Trevor was very understanding of Ford’s problem. He never wanted to pressure Ford about coming out. He wanted Ford to do it on his own. To make his own decision. I loved that!

I felt the connection between them right away. They got each other’s humor.
Well… Ford got Trevor’s humor!…lol
and Trevor tied to get Ford to loosen up!

This book had it’s funny moments. The shower scene was my favorite!

Omg…. I was laughing! Poor Ford!…lol
The sex was seriously good in this book. I just loved how Trevor brought out the naughty side in Ford.

There were some things in this book I thought were a little much.
And it was the whole religion talk. I was surprised how much of it that was in this book.
and I know this book was a political romance.
But… some stuff in this book felt like I was watching the news. I just wish we had more of the forbiddeness of it all.
We just get a lot of Ford’s hiding from his family and his work.

And… the big thing for me was…
Trevor we was the son of the president of the United States. Why didn’t he have secret service following him around? I found that really weird when he was sneaking around with Ford. And no one picked up on it. That’s hard to believe.

Other than that. I thought this book was pretty good. I would recommend this book to other people.
