Synopsis:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a sizzling new 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.
Review:
The Hamilton family can be described as the modern day Kennedys, The patron of the family was a president of the United States and he also died because someone shot him. Basically, the Hamiltons are American royalty. Matthew, the son in the family is now in the running to become president of the USA. If he succeeded he'll be the youngest president to be elected in history.

Charlotte Wells has always had a crush on Matthew Hamilton ever since she first met him during an event Matt's father held. At that time Charlotte was only 11 years old and she jokingly said that if Matt would ever run for office she'll help with his campaign. Fast forward 10 years later, true to her words she is now helping Matt with his campaign to become president.

She has always believed that Matt would be a great president. His father was in his short time and now he will be once he is elected. Being involved in Matt's campaign only solidify her opinion of this. As they worked together more frequently, their feelings of one another grew as well. One thing led to another and they end up developing a relationship with each other, which is a dangerous thing given what kind of damage a relationship like this can do to his campaign.
“I really hadn’t realized how much we missed a strong leader, an inspiring leader, until every time I stare at the one I want. He could make such a difference. A man like him could make such a difference.” 
First of all I'd like to say sorry for this trash of a review because I actually read this book in 2017 but this review was written in 2018!! So yeah, a year later I looked at this draft and do not know what to write in it. Anyways, as I said, please excuse this pathetic review as I probably have forgotten most if not all of my thoughts on this book. The writings below are what I can gather from my dumbass brain on the book. Don't attack me.

This book had the makings of a great story. This isn't by far the most original story in the world since you all have probably read a story like this somewhere else using the trope of forbidden romance where the characters fall in love with each other even though they shouldn't because of certain circumstances.
“For years the public has come to believe every promise made by every candidate has been pure bulls**t. Nobody believes in them anymore. Politics has been totally tainted by propaganda…America wants a change. America wants to grow. America wants to be young and powerful again.”
I mean, this book is basically the show Scandal in word form with younger characters. We all know the great, complicated and frustrating romance of Olivia Pope and Fitzgerald Grant, which was what I kind of hoped would appear in this book since the romance between an aide and a presidential candidate is always a scandalous thing to read about. I did not get the drama that I expected from this book.

In a book that was 300+ pages long, I actually need more pages. If we're talking about romance, chemistry and steamy scenes I can say that this book does those three things justice. What I need more of was the political storyline, Scandal was able to make politics interesting and I had hoped that this book would do the same thing to me, but alas I was left wanting more.
“You can’t say Charlotte is beautiful, she’s too stunning for that. You just don’t forget a face like hers…Despite being raised as a senator’s daughter, she’s so far been untouched by political scandal…she loves the presidency—and she always has.”
Will I pick up the sequel? Umm, not sure as I have forgotten most of what happened on this book except the ending (I think?) but yea, if you guys wanted to try a quick read that you can just breeze through you should give this a try.

That's all for now!
