Mr. President by Katy Evans Review

I had the honor of receiving an ARC of Mr. President by Katy Evans! (ARC= Advanced Reader's Copy for you non bloggers out there!)  I want to start off this review by saying I am a huge fan of Katy and her wonderful series. I started reading her Real series in May 2013 and I have been hooked ever since. So I am completely over the moon and beyond thankful to be chosen to review one of her books early. (Thank you again to Katy and to Nina at Socialbutterfly!) I can't wait to share my thoughts with you! Trust me guys, you are going to want to get a hold of this one! 
Mr. President by [Evans, Katy]
Basics: Mr. President will be released on October 31st, Happy Halloween! Mr. President is 280 pages long and is published by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform.

Description: 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. Two 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.
Plot: Charlotte Wells is a twenty two year old working and living in Washington DC who has no desire to get involved in politics. much to her parents disappointment. Matt Hamilton is American family Royalty; his father was the President of the United States and before he was horrifically murdered, his father told everyone that Matt would someday take his place. Years later Matt announces he's running for President and the entire country explodes with excitement and shock. Charlotte is overjoyed at Matt's announcement; the two met two decades prior where a young Charlotte promised she would support his campaign if he would ever run for election and Matt has called on to collect that promise. 

Charlotte soon finds herself supporting Mr. Hamilton's campaign, each meeting and workday the two become closer and can't fight the attraction burning between them. However Charlotte wants Matt to win the election even if costs them their promising relationship. Matt wants to become President but he also wants Charlotte by his side. Can Matt Hamilton win the election and be with Charlotte without causing a nationwide scandal?

Favorite Quotes:  Focus Charlotte! Nope. Not on his ass. -Charlotte 

I'm playing with fire and I don't care. -Matt

She's in my veins, this girl. -Matt
(Some small spoilers ahead)
Overall thoughts: Evans wrote an absolutely perfect, romantic book and her timing couldn't be more ideal. Everyone's mind seems to be on the 2016 election and whoever you are voting for, you have to  agree how crazy the 2016 election has been so far. Some people are going crazy over whose running and others want to move to Canada. Mr. President is a perfect escape for anyone who either needs a break from the election or loves Kennedy family centric history. Charlotte and Matt's chemistry is endearing and  magnetic. It's not just a romance story about two people who see each other and want one another, then fall in love. Charlotte and Matt knew each other as kids and remembered each other as they grew up which I personally find so swoon worthy. Two people who haven't seen each other in years and they find their way back to one another and fall in love? Count me in!

I also love how Evans added that touch of forbidden romance into Charlotte and Matt's relationship with different aspects. Charlotte just turned two twenty and Matt is thirty five, a thirteen age difference. Most people I don't think would care about this; some would maybe raise their eyebrows but for a man who is running for President and dating a woman who is thirteen years younger than he is? It's been decades and decades since we've had a candidate run for the Presidency without a spouse, so of course people are going to question why Matt Hamilton isn't married. (At least in Evans world they are.) So when Charlotte joins Matt's campaign team and they start to secretly fall for one another, it could be turned into a scandal considering all the sneaking around they have to do.

Having Matt run as a third party candidate was also something I enjoyed. It was a nice twist and I appreciated the fresh take on a different type of nominee considering we usually only hear about the Democrat or Republican candidate.

I adored Mr. President very much and I was actually pretty shocked to learn that Mr. President would be turning into a series! Pleasantly shocked. I thought Mr. President would be a standalone but Katy Evans continues to surprise me. Mr. President left me with several questions so I can't wait for the next installment of the White House series, Commander in Chief!

My rating: 5/5 shells
