►►Goodreads Blurb:◄◄

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…

►►My Thoughts:◄◄

I’ve never been this conflicted while writing a review before.

Let’s start with what I absolutely loved about Commander in Chief – the main characters, the relationship development and progression, the steam level, and most of all I haven’t made it a secret that I love Katy Evan’s writing style.  Her larger than life heroes are MAGNIFICENT and Mathew Hamilton is no exception.

The feelings and emotions exhibited by her characters are some of the best I’ve read.  This book is a study in love that transcends all and out of this world chemistry between two lovers.

There main characters are nearly perfect.  Mathew is the gold standard of sexy alpha-male heroes.  He’s the most powerful man in the country, but remains sweet and down to earth.  Charlotte is strong, likeable, and relatable.  They rocked!

The writing is top notch.  It pulls you in and sweeps you off your feet.

With all that said, this book didn’t excite me like Mr. President.  It was too easy – a little too perfect.  I kept waiting for a conflict that never came.  I imagined an assassination attempt, public backlash, kidnapping, a baby delivery scare, and countless other dramas.  However, none came.

Because of that, I was left wanting.  That’s the crux of my conflict, folks.  Maybe I was in a drama llama mood when I read it.  That’s doubtful, but I’ll go with it.  What I do want to say is this review is my honest opinion.  It may be unpopular, but it’s true.


So, here’s what I’ll say to those wondering if I recommend this book, the answer is maybe.

If you read book 1, absolutely – finish what you start.

If you haven’t started the series but love pure romance with no angst or drama – absolutely.  This is your jam!

If you need a little more bite to your romance and haven’t started the series, this is an enjoyable read, but may not be for you.

To end my rambling, my opinions of the author haven’t changed.  Katy Evans is one of my favorites and I’m looking forward to her future projects.  Overall, this duet is an enjoyable read.

I rate it: 3-5-stars
