The concept for PRIME MINISTER is so daring and bold, that I couldn’t resist, especially being a Canuck myself, I couldn’t wait to see what the authors would do with the premise. A young, handsome, and randy government head of state! I must admit I thought it would be a light read, without much depth, and obviously focused on sex. Well, was I ever wrong! First of all, the writing simply blew me away! Flowing, witty, and so seamless, you’d never fathom there are two authors involved! The prose is simply spectacular, the dialogues witty and brilliant, and I love that PRIME MINISTER remains at all times 100% Canadian. As is pointed out in the foreword, the political elements were streamlined so as not to bog down the narrative and enable the kinky romance to star, and still the political atmosphere felt genuine at all times. Never did we lose sight of who the hero was and what he did for a living. I honestly felt the story could happen in real life – hey, it’s Canada!
Another thing that awed me is the romance itself. Obviously, there is quite a bit of sex, given the randy PM, but the romance is absolutely beautiful and heartfelt, convincing every step of the way. I have seldom experience such a genuine connection between two characters, and I’m not talking about the sex, but about caring and sharing. Their actions spoke for themselves, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how tender the love story was. I had feared a bungled, easy ending, and especially when a threat arises, but far from it, it reinforced everything that had happened before, whether from a romantic or political point of view.
I’m thrilled that the authors took the chance of writing this very intelligent and different sort of book. PRIME MINISTER works on all accounts; I had expected erotica with over the top elements, and it is definitely not the case. PRIME MINISTER is a lovely romance with some kinky stuff, and the fantastic ending points to the next book in the series as being just as awesome!
Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller , I stand on guard for ye!
Taking on a Prime Minister - 5++ stars
I have to admit, the trailer that I saw regarding this book is what really drew me in. I absolutely loved it and could not wait to buy the book. I also enjoyed getting to learn a little bit about how differently Canada is run from the US. Gavin is one of those guys that you would love to be around, just to gaze upon his perfection (although he would be the first to tell you he is not perfect). He ran for the position of Prime Minister, without really thinking he would get it, but now that he has the position, he wants to turn his country around and give all Canadians a better life.
Ellie just happens to be an intern for the summer while she waits for school to start back up in the fall so she can finish her degree. Being in her mid twenties, and following Women's Studies, she is there to be the voice of the everyday woman. Like the majority of women in the country, she has a crush on the PM, but never thinks it could or would go anywhere. Something pulls the two of them together, regardless of how risky it is.
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters in this book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series, to see what Max's story is all about. We get a taste of it at the end of this book, but I want MORE! And then, there is Lachlan's book to come after that! We've seen a good deal of him in this book, but there is soooooo much more to him that will be so fun to discover. And can we just look at the covers for these three books??? Hot, hot, HOT!!
**Honest review voluntarily provided for purchased product.**
Prime Minister is a wonderfully written story, full of emotion and sexiness, but most of all, it had a depth and deftness to it while reflecting the (sort of) inner workings of a country's CEO. Ms Booth and Ms Haller brings you gently into the world of BDSM (it's mostly BDSM lite, really) and gives you a meaty glimpse of the what it's like to run a country and fall in love at the same time. There are echoes of the show West Wing in it, which I loved, because West Wing is one of my favorite TV shows ever - I'm on my third watch through of the series.
I adored Gavin. He's strong, dominating, yet sensitive and honest about his feelings. I enjoyed his struggle at the beginning and Ms Booth and Ms Haller did a very credible job of building up his attraction for Ellie while resisting her because of the inappropriateness of the attraction. I had thought I would not be able to look past Gavin and keep picturing Justin Trudeau (hello! Sexy Canadian PM in real life!) but the authors made me forget all about Justin and very quickly, I was completely enamored with Gavin. I was rooting for him while he juggled his responsibilities of being in public office versus the private man who was into some kinky f****ry who needed someone special in his life, who understood him - the man, public office, kinky f****ry and all.
As for Ellie, Ellie is a gem. She's smart, cute, slightly awkward and had a tremendous crush on the PM. She's also an innocent, and she sees the inappropriateness of her crush. It was endearing how they both worked so hard to resist each other but being inexplicably drawn to each other. Ellie was attracted to the poweful, decisive man who won the nation's trust in putting him in charge. Gavin was attracted to the smart, sexy intern who turned him inside out. And Ellie is honest and pragmatic. She understands what it means to be dating the Prime Minister of the country. Even when trouble hits, she's brave and logical in dealing with the storm, all the while hurting inside. She doesn't run away from the trouble and I applaud her for that.
I loved Gavin and Ellie as a couple. It was mature and convincing. I admired how they dealt with their feelings, how they communicated and how they made the relationship work for them even with obstacles like he's the Prime Minister of Canada and she's an intern to deal with. There was nothing tawdry or cheap about how their relationship was handled right from the start. Even with some inappropriate fantasizing on Gavin's part, he treated Ellie with respect from the get go.
The secondary characters were great too. I loved Lachlan, I hope he gets a story. I want to find out what's his kink. As for Max, I think his story is next and I think it's going to be a spicy one. I think his kink might be a lot more hard core than Gavin's.
One last note, I'm not one to give 5 stars to a book often. They need to be special. With Prime Minister, I went to bed thinking about it, and I woke up dreaming about it. I simply could not get Gavin out of my head. This is when I know it's a good book. I had to keep reading till I finished it. Such a satisfying read. And maybe I'm feeling a bit nostalgic because this story reminds me so much of the early dating days between my Steve and I, and today we celebrate a significant wedding anniversary.
Bravo Ms Booth and Ms Haller! I'm looking forward to more frisky beavers.
