My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mr President by Katy Evans.
Adored. Breathtaking. Charming. Delicious. Enchanting. Forbidden. I could go through each letter of the alphabet and describe this book but the letters that stick out the most are L because I freaking LOVED Mr President (both the book and the candidate) and R because this was ROMANCE at its finest.
I fell in love with the synopsis when it was initially shared and consider myself extremely lucky to have received an arc from the author to read and review this first book in a new series. There's always so much hype surrounding a new Katy Evans book and they never fail to live up to that hype. Mr President had me gripped in its hooks from the word go and it didn't let go until the very last page was turned.
Matthew effing Hamilton is the independent candidate for presidency and recruits Charlotte, a girl he's known since she was a child but hasn't seen in years, to become his scheduler. You just know from the moment they meet again as adults that theirs would be a romance that transcends time and bends the rules and absolutely takes your breath away.
They are "a perfect couple, in the most imperfect situation."
Matthew hasn't always wanted to run for presidency but feels that all his father worked for when he was president and prior to his assassination will be for naught if he doesn't. And Charlotte, as the daughter of a senator, has never wanted to have much to do with politics or politicians. They both know that their relationship has an expiration date but can't seem to stop the attraction from building and consuming them. I adored both of these characters. Matthew was just divine - he is passionate about everything; about Charlotte, his campaign, his country and he gives it his all. And Charlotte is amazing in her own right. Knowing what would eventuate, she still gave as much as she could and was committed to the campaign.
I loved the sweetness, the forbidden, the sheer romance of it all. The heat and passion was heating up my ereader and I simply did not want this book to end. I love Evans' writing style. It's consuming, it's beautiful, and it's magic on paper. You can feel the passion just from her words - whether it be innocent kisses, forbidden touches, or the sexy times, it's all done with utter perfection. Love it.
Finally, I'll just say that if this was an actual campaign and Matt was up for presidency, I would be moving to the US just to vote for him but as it is, Evans gets my vote for an outstanding five star read. Cannot wait for Commander in Chief.
