BLURB: 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.
I want to personally thank Cardeno C and Ron Herczig for saving my day – I’m decorating and what should have been a tearing-my-hair-out experience turned into a rather good experience, so thank you Author and Narrator.
Anyone who reads my reviews, know that I’m fairly new to the audiobook market and after todays’ experience, I finally realise their attraction – dirty talking! I like reading sex scenes in a book, but after listening to Ron Herczig, “dirty talking” takes on a whole new dimension, a totally new level, that I never knew existed. Now being a Brit, I’m not familiar with the different accents of Americans, but Ron’s voice has a certain “laziness” about it, I think it would be referred to as a “drawl”, but whatever it was, it was hot and I was mesmerised by it, mixed with a great storyline from the Author, it was 5* all the way for me,
Bradford “Ford” Hollingsworth is a first time Republican Congressman. He’s honourable and following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps in everything, except for the fact that he’s Gay and definitely not “Out”. He can keep his secret, secret, by anonymous hook-ups – he doesn’t know them, they certainly don’t know him.
However, one of these anonymous hook-ups turns out to be Trevor, the U.S. Presidents son! Trevor is very aware of who Ford is, however, though he doesn’t care if he’s a Republican or a Democrat, he just wants Ford the man!
It’s all secret at first but they fall in love with each other and for me, it was the best part of the book, it was sweet, joyous and beautiful, all rolled into one. The narration made it so intimate and personal and then you get the “dirty talk” and it’s just so WOW.
Of course the foundations of this book are based on politics, so there’s going to be angst – Ford’s internal struggle with his family and voters, wanting to be with Trevor but not sure how he could achieve this without destroying his family and goodness knows what the Voters would think? And then we have Trevor. Born of two parents to who politics are everything, their unconventional marriage, not Mr. and Mrs. WhiteHouse as the press perceive, but nevertheless, love Trevor dearly. Trevor’s mum was an inspirational character by the Author and I kept thinking Hillary Clinton when listening to the story. The way Trevor kinda stalked and wearied Ford down, showing him that their love was worth fighting for.
Cardeno C has given us an amazing book but the narrator, took it to a new level. Between them, they made a great team.
I have no hesitation in recommending this audiobook, it’s one that I can listen to time and time again without getting bored.
Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.
Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”
