3.75 Sir Stars!!

Well this one hot as hell read!! I went into this story completely blind and I'm so glad I did because the events that took place had me cranking up my AC even though it's almost winter. This is the story of one woman's jouney of finding  her own fairy tale and whether it's it's convential or not, it's HER fairytale. We're just along for the ride.

"From the moment I met Ash, I knew I was destined to love him.  I knew I was destined to be his".

Greer has met the love of her life at Sixteen. Having been around the political circle since the day she was born, it's become a natural thing for her to interact with all the big political figures. When she meets the former military Lieutenant and war hero Maxen Ashley Cochester, she's immediately drawn to him. 

One Kiss and ten years later, Maxen a.k.a Ash is now the President of the United States. One thing he's never forgotten about is Greer and how those few minutes he spent with her changed him completely. Determined to get her back into his world, Ash is prepared to do anything to keep her and as the  leader of the free world, he's about to pull out all of the stops.

 "You belong to yourself and you belong to me,  and I don't fucking care that it seems to be a contradiction because we both know it isn't. "

I really loved the connection between the characters and you felt everything they were feeling. They were passionate, raw, loving and real and that's what I loved about this story the most. I didn't agree with certain scenes and I felt like the insta lust/love was a little too quick for me  but in some way it worked for them. And what's love without a little political drama right? 

I will say that this is by far the hottest book I've ever read!! The attraction, the setting, along with the sexual tension made this story different and I really liked that. If you're looking for a hot read with characters that will take you out of your comfort zone, then this one is for you.



Excerpt: 

“I kept thinking about what I wanted to give you today for our wedding day, and honestly, Greer, there isn’t really anything I couldn’t give you.  Jewelry or exotic vacations or rare editions of the books you love, anything I could have dreamed of, I could get for you—but they were just things.  I didn’t want to get you a thing for a curio cabinet or a jewelry box.  I wanted to give you something that you could carry with you through our new life together.  Something that would make you a promise.” The best man’s hand brushes up against my stocking-covered ankle and I gasp. “What is it, princess?” Ash's low voice comes over the phone line. “Embry…I mean, Ash, I—"  I can't find the words just then, because Embry’s hand slides up my calf and everything stops.  My thoughts, my feelings, my guilt—my world shrinks to Ash’s voice on the phone and the fingers moving past my knee and Embry’s face, so controlled. But lust and anger and determination are fissuring across that control, and I can see his wide pupils and the pulse pounding in his neck and the trembling of his lips. What is happening? I think distantly to myself.  What am I letting happen…and all while I’m on the phone with my soon-to-be husband? And then the world slams back into motion, and I make a strangled noise, stumbling backwards, away from Embry.  He starts to stand and come toward me, and I hold out one of my hands, moving backwards until my back is pressed against the floor-to-ceiling window overlooking the skyline. Embry looks down at my shaking hand and then back up to me, those fissures in his control now full-on fractures, and he says, “Greer…” “Don’t test me,” I whisper, not sure if I'm whispering to the groom or the best man.  “Don’t test me like this.” This isn't happening.  I missed a connection somewhere, misunderstood something vital, because there is no way, no fucking way, that Ash is offering his best friend to me as some sort of wedding present.  This is my wishful thinking turned toxic, this is my darkest fantasies turning into delusion— “I want you to let Embry give you my gift,” Ash tells me.  “While I listen.  That’s what you’ll give me in exchange: every single moan, pant and cry will be for me.” “You can’t be saying what I think you’re saying,” I say.  "Oh, don't worry, angel.  I'll get something out of this for me too."  I hear the dark roughness in his voice and I realize I'm so very, very wet. “Close your eyes,” Ash orders. I do, my panting somehow louder in my head when I can't see anything.  The glass window against my back is cool and strong, just like Ash’s words in my ear. “I know you’re wet.  I know it like I know Embry is hard right now, just from the mere thought of touching you.  You want it, don’t you?  You want it so much that you’re shaking with the effort it’s taking to hold yourself back.”  “But I don’t want to hurt you.”  It's my final plea, my final argument, my final grasp at some semblance of sanity.  My skirts are almost up at my waist now, and I know the moment Embry catches sight of my delicate, hand-embroidered French panties because he takes in a sharp breath, as if punched in the gut. “It all hurts,” Ash says.  “It hurts watching you two watching each other.  It hurts watching him with other people.  There’s no part about this that doesn’t hurt, but what’s the alternative?  Living without the pain means living without each other.”
