Look, it's not a secret that I'm Katy Evan's biggest fan. It's just not. I am completely and utterly addicted to her books. I cannot get enough. I crave her stories. And when I get a new one, I can barely contain myself from gobbling it up in one sitting. She's MY unicorn author. The one that I know will deliver a great read EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
That said, when I heard about this book -- Mr President -- I was a teeny bit nervous. Politics is a sticky thing, right? And I was feeling so over this current election climate that I didn't know if I wanted to read a romance based on a man running for Office. But it's Katy Evans, and if anyone can write a home run romance on that kind of story-line, it's her. So I started reading...
And... sh*t. whoa. WHOA.
WHOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! <<---- Yes. That is a lot of whoa's!!! ::giggles::
Immediately, I was bubbling with all these swoony-gleeful-crazy-I want to howl at the moon-I'm so happy-feelings. I can't even explain it. My stomach started doing these little tango moves for Matt. Talk about TAKING MY BREATH AWAY.
TALK ABOUT HEART STOPPINGLY SEXY, FUN, AND INTOXICATING.
Mr. President is a book you read when you want to be swept off your feet completely. It's a sexy, forbidden (though, not crazy forbidden, just a little complicated) romance that literally gives you goosebumps all over (I'm even getting them now as I write this review). It makes you feel as though you are being romanced from the top of your head to the very tippy tips of your toes.
Matt is an alpha male all the way, but not a dirty, over the top, alpha. He's smart, sexy, articulate, strong, capable, savvy, masculine, and so f--king drool worthy it makes you ache in the very best ways. His love for his Country, for the people, for his family, for Charlotte, is so swoon worthy. I about exploded with love and lust when he was on the page.
And Charlotte... I cannot say enough about how endearing and sweet she was. This girl is perfect. She's young, energetic, beautiful, pure hearted. A go getter with an innocence that gives you hope and makes you feel happy.
I loved the chemistry between her and Matt. I loved the way they were with each other. And as the plot line unfolded, as Matt brought Charlotte on the campaign trail, as their dynamic grew and blossomed, I became intoxicated. I loved that their relationship felt easy. I loved that it wasn't weighed down by over bearing, heavy handed, angst! I mean, yes, the angst was present throughout the book but it was just so well done that I felt like I could dance through it.
Gosh, delicious, romantic, Mr. President had me flying high. I don't really know what else to say. If you want to read a romance that will steal your breath, that will take you away from every day life, that will hold your attention ENTIRELY, then get this. Go on the campaign trail with Matt as he tries to win the votes of the people. Watch as Charlotte helps him reach his goals. Be enamored as they find what they thought they never would in each other. And feel the romance as you are stolen by just how beautiful, how wonderful, these characters are inside and out.
Overall, I am in love with this book. It's hard for me to pick a favorite Katy Evans read because I've had a love-fest with them all, but if I had to choose, this would be at the top of my list. I HIGHLY recommend it. Utterly amazing. A SOLID 5 stars of Hamilton Perfection.
He looks at my kissed lips as he slips his hand beneath my skirt, touching the bare skin on the inside of my thigh. His fingertip touches me over my underwear—trailing a feather-like path across my wet sex.
It’s a ghost touch—barely there, but it causes a shudder to run through me.
I moan, and his forehead hovers above mine as we both pant and brush our lips across the other’s. Matt licks my bottom lip, then inside my mouth before he retreats.
He sets his face on mine and smells my neck. He groans again and kisses me, tongue plunging heatedly inside. Pulling back seconds later.
“Are you torturing me?” I gasp, so aroused my whole body is shaking.
He’s breathing hard, his chest expanding with each breath. “If I’m torturing you, then what I’m doing to myself has no name.”
“You’re unobtainable, Matt.” I look at his GQ-cover face. “Matt Hamilton. You’re so unobtainable you’re like a poster, something I can look at but not touch.”
A dark look settles in his gaze as he leans forward again.
I’m thoughtless, mindless as he presses his lips to mine. A kiss with just one flick of his tongue. So perfect and so right, I forget that it’s wrong. I inhale, and he inhales me through his mouth.
I groan his name this time.
It cannot work. It won’t work. The scandal it would cause, the way it would ruin everything that he—that we—are so methodically working for.
“I’ll find a way to get you alone with me. I want to spend time with you. I want to feel more of you,” he rasps, kissing my earlobe, his breath hot and haggard on my skin as he lets his fingers trail up and down my thigh, beneath my skirt.
His fingers sweep across my panties again—eliciting another mewl from my lips.
“I’d like that,” I moan when he rubs my nub a little.
He looks down at me with primal possessiveness, watching me catch my breath and moan as he rubs harder, when a new group of people walk into the monument.
He clenches his jaw, then smoothly pulls his hand away. I breathe, “Is this a mistake?”
“It won’t be.” His voice is firm. Eyes flashing and determined as he lifts his head to scan the crowd. “Let’s go,” he says gently, taking my elbow and guiding me.
We head back to the car in silence—his hand on the small of my back as he guides me into the backseat. His touch searing—reminding me of where else his fingers have just been.
