Strange Bedfellows - Tour Banner



WLK synopsis

Strange Bedfellows - cover  Can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.

 As the sole offspring of the Democratic United States president and his political operative wife, Trevor Moga was raised in an environment driven by the election cycle. During childhood, he fantasized about living in a made-for-television family, and as an adult, he rejected all things politics and built a highly successful career as far from his parents as possible.

 Newly elected congressman Ford Hollingsworth is Republican royalty. The grandson of a revered governor and son of a respected senator, he was bred to value faith, family, and the goal of seeing a Hollingsworth in the White House.

 When Trevor and Ford meet, sparks fly and a strong friendship is formed. But can the billionaire son of a Democratic president build a family with the congressman son of a Republican senator? Forget politics, love makes strange bedfellows.



Kay's Review

Trevor and Ford meet at a bar and end up in Trevor's home for a hook-up. But when Ford finds out Trevor is the son of the Democratic US President while he's a Republican congressman who isn't out, he's afraid Trevor has enough ammunition to ruin his career. Can Ford trust Trevor enough and does Trevor really want to get involved with a politician?

I will start by saying this story lacked the fluidity I've come to expect in stories by this author. The first few chapters were bogged down with info dump which I ended up skimming and it prevented me from enjoying what should've been an intriguing scene unravelling between the two main characters.

Eventually the story does pick up and there's enough curiosity about whether either of their fears is realised to keep me turning the pages. In the end this was an okay read and I'm sure there are plenty of m/m readers who will enjoy it. But it just wasn't one of my favourite from this author.
