Stunning closure to Mr President!
Katy Evans managed to write one amazing conclusion to a much beloved book of mine. I LOVED Mr. President. I loved the forbidden, the secrecy but most of all Matt and Charlotte’s love.
Commander in Chief continued 2 month after Election Day. Charlotte spent the last two month in Europe, trying to keep distance between herself and Matt. For Matt it was two month too many. He hated being apart from the woman he intended to make his.
At one of Matt’s inauguration balls, Matt put his foot down and told Charlotte that they were far from over. That he intended to have her with him at the White House, on his site, as his First Lady. Charlotte, wanting the same, accepted but intended to go slowly. She wanted to keep their relationship hidden until Matt had a chance to get settled in his new position as the President of the United States.
Even so, their circumstances weren’t ideal, their passion was as hot and enduring as ever.
It’s hard to speak. The way he’s looking at me is thawing my resolve to be strong, and I need to pull his attention away from stripping me naked with his eyes.
Matt found in Charlotte the person that he wanted to be by his side, as wife and First Lady. And he didn’t care anymore what the media or anyone else would think about it. He didn’t want to be Commander in Chief without her. Charlotte made him stronger in every way.
His passion and love for Charlotte was palpable. They longed for each other when they were apart. It pained them to be separated from each other.
They both knew that the situation was far from ideal. Matt stepping into his fathers footsteps as President. Taking over a huge responsibility and literally having a country as his first mistress and highest priority. Charlotte never thought anything could ever come from their affair. She never expected a happily ever after. She understood what was asked from Matt, and she supported him 100%.
But all of that didn’t diminish their love one iota.
Matt knew he couldn’t give her what she deserved, a normal life, but maybe what he could offer her was good enough. A life together. For Charlotte, even sharing Matt with the country would be better than not having him at all.
So, they decided to go SLOW.
Slow, meant Charlotte moved into the White House as acting First Lady. She would be able to keep working with women and children, to make a change in peoples life. And living under the same roof would give them opportunity to spend time together, away from the public eye.
But they couldn’t keep their passion hidden for long. The media had a field day and speculation arose plenty. But most of all Matt had no inclination to keep their relationship a secret for long. He wanted to come out. To tell everyone that Charlotte was HIS.
And wow, did he make a statement. He made Charlotte his in the most permanent ways.
I absolutely loved Katy Evans for the way she planned out this book. She gave me more than what I could have hoped for.
I was so giddy getting this book. I adored Matt and Charlotte in Mr. President. Their love for each other was all consuming. The forbidden, the secrecy, the unfortunate timing, all of it made me cheer for them even more. They deserved their happily ever after. And the way Katy Evans gave it to them was just phenomenal.
I loved being a part of their lives.
Commander in Chief was one of those stories that made me glow inside. Warmed me up from the inside. No drama, just real, believable and genuine feelings between Matt and Charlotte. I loved their tangible respect, admiration and support for each other. It was an incredible pleasure to read about two people that loved passionately without being over the top dramatic.
Katy Evans has not disappointed me so far, and I’m more than pleased that she has another book coming out that will be placed in the same world, but about a different couple set during Matt’s second term.
