APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The second installment of Katy Evans' White House series is a romantic fantasy that counters the political blahs. Bachelor Matt Hamilton is the youngest president in U.S. history—and he's determined to make his former lover, Charlotte Wells, his FLOTUS. Light, bubbly, and deliciously erotic, this political love story is short on drama and heavy on joy. Fans of entertainment like The American President and Designated Survivor will enjoy the White House setting, while romance readers will devour this Cinderella story.

4.5 stars. This is the second book in the White House series. It takes you on the journey of President Hamilton and his appointed First Lady during their four year term. The struggles, sacrifices, accomplishments and hard decisions that comes with being the president. It is also a heart warming story filled with love and dedication to family. I am not giving any spoilers away, but this is definitely one of the better written books by Katy Evans. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC for an honest review and I am glad I did.
The best of both worlds
Charlotte wants a man to love and a man who can make a difference.
Commander in Chief begins where Mr. President ends with Matt winning the election and losing Charlotte. Charlotte promised herself and Matt that their affair was temporary. Yet, Matt needs a First Lady to stand by his side. Now it’s Charlotte’s turn to win the public’s attention.
Charlotte is the senator’s daughter who has wanted to make a difference, yet she never dreamed she could make one on this scale. Charlotte never dreamed one letter stating she would help Matt campaign to win the presidential election would give her the opportunity to live in the White House as the First Lady.
Charlotte’s character was a worrier. She had adversities with many issues letting her fears and insecurities get the best of her. I had a love/hate relationship with her. I hated her insecurities.
Matt’s character was insatiable. He wanted the best from both worlds. I had a love/hate relationship with him as well. I hated his possessiveness.
The sex scenes were even more explicit if that is even possible. Technically they were the same scenes played over and over again with different locations. Each scenes began the same with kissing, fingers, licking, sucking, tugging, and thrusting. I got tired of the same old song and dance. However, with being in the White House the rendezvous were upgraded with some untraditional ravishing in certain rooms. It seemed the sex scenes were the most taboo of all considering the way they interacted with one another. It’s not typical to picture your President licking, sucking, fingering, and kissing a woman in the Oval Office while guards line the hallways. It was sexy, yet too explicit, almost scandalous. With Charlotte wanting to avoid a scandal I felt she was still part of one inside the White House. For an untraditional President Matt’s scandalous sex life behind close doors was like most traditional scandals.
Matt was an untraditional candidate having campaigned as a bachelor. Most ever decision he made was made with this same untraditional method.
I’m still questioning the transition from secret lover to First Lady to bride. It’s no spoiler that Charlotte and Matt would get their HEA. I knew going into this book to expect it, yet it was anticlimactic to say the least. I expected more grandeur with this transition as a young president who practiced untraditional methods.
Overall: I didn’t love this book the same way I loved the first one. This one was too easy. Everything fell into place too easily with no resistance. At times it felt repetitious with sex...sex...sex. I skimmed most parts in this book due to the explicit nature of these sex scenes.
Love love loooooovvvvvveee again!
I loved getting to see how they work through their issues and getting to see their happy ever after. I would 10/10 recommend reading. Katy Evans is the best. Don’t forget to read “Mr. President” first though.
