Mr. President by Katy Evans
Release Date: October 31st
Genre: 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.
When a book hangover is so strong it has the power to incapacitate you. Katy Evan’s Mr. President has done just that to me. I cannot for the love of me get past this book. It’s all I’ve been able to think about and I can’t seem to do anything about it. There was something so agonizingly addictive about this book. Mr. President a slow burning love story in which the author continuously feeds the embers, keeping the fire blazing from start to finish.
In Mr. President, we follow Matthew Hamilton, America’s Golden Boy and Charlotte Wells, America’s sweetheart. Both whom you will undoubtedly love from the moment their taste hits the tip of your tongue. While both have lived lives that revolved around politics, Matthew’s family lineage is solely embroiled in American politics which spans decade’s and decade’s worth. As the son of a beloved, former President, Matt has been raised to put himself in the same position years before he even has a chance to contemplate the possibility of it. And as a young girl, Charlotte’s opportune meeting with a well-respected President and his very charismatic son, leads to a girlish crush that too spans a decade’s worth. Fast forward 11 years later, we find Matthew Hamilton proclaiming his candidacy for Presidency under the Independent ticket—one that causes major controversy across the Democratic party of which his father represented 2 terms worth. For Charlotte, that girlish crush she once thought was nothing but a young girl’s fantasy soon becomes a fantasy she never could have ever imagined possible. The moment that they both lay their eyes onto one another so many years after is also the moment that they both begin to lose what has yet to begin.
The events that unfold once the ball starts rolling will have you turning into a puddle of goo. The delicious tease that drags on from one chapter to the next is excruciatingly wonderful. Katy Evans holds some type of magic. She creates such gorgeous characters that she makes you need. A need that becomes so innate, you become precariously obsessed with them. Charlotte and Matt will make you lose your mind! Their chemistry will set an inferno within you—what begins as a spark turns into a blazing fire, one that not even the Atlantic Ocean could extinguish and their love as unattainable as it seems will soften even the hardest of hearts.
What I loved most about this book was Ms. Evan’s take on what goes on behind the scenes of what it takes to have a successful Presidential campaign, behind the winning debates, and more so what goes on inside a Presidential nominee like Matthew Hamilton. Mr. President is a searing look into the sacrifices made in order to serve a country and its people. The adoration and the love that Charlotte and Matt have for their country is so powerful that they face losing the greatest love both of them may ever have in this lifetime. The push and pull will have you angst lovers cheering and the sexy times (and there are A LOT) will have you romance lovers clenching your thighs into oblivion.
The way I felt during the entire time I was reading this book is the reason why I relish reading romance books. I LOVED Mr. President. I am OBSESSED with Matt and Charlotte and I am so THANKFUL for Katy Evans for writing such an amazing book. Mr. President sits atop as 1 of my 3 2016 BEST READS so far. I just know that you will all love this as much as I did—OK maybe not AS much because I’ve called dibs on this one but it is a guaranteed 5-star read. This has my bookshelf worthy stamp of approval and one I will continually re-read time and time again.
