Trey is a seriously messed up young man. His every action is scrutinized, he can't be himself, and his father 'The Senator' keeps him toeing the line. In public he's portrayed as his father's golden boy, the far right example of what an upstanding man should be, and as his father preaches, that doesn't involve being gay. Yet he is.
'The Senator' was a preacher and still lives by his religion. His platform is against the LGBTQ community. So much of the story is Trey's issue with his parents and the issues they stand for. They're portrayed as manipulative, selfish, small minded yet God fearing. This wasn't just a bash on politics and parenting but also on religion. It's taken to the extreme on many points. And because Trey and his sister are so repressed, treated so horribly by not letting them make their own life decisions, their parents are evil.
Little is said about Trey's mindset or if he gets psychiatric help. He falls for the first close relationship offered. He's been sheltered and he's exploring his sexuality under his parents nose, a relationship with his father's employee. Interesting that Trey's dishonesty is whitewashed.
I gave up on this one, too slanted for my taste yet this trope of a gay politician is one I enjoy. I recommend Cardeno C's 'Strange Bedfellows' as a less politically slanted read. Read on Kindle Unlimited. - Dan's Wife
This book sounded really good but it was quite political so it is NOT a good escape from current events.
I really liked the mystery aspects of this story. I was excited when I thought I knew who did it and it was well written. The only thing that was missing was that ending. It felt pretty unfinished to me. I wanted to see the fallout. I wanted to see the press conferences. I wanted to see how everything was being spun.
I think the romance also left a bit to be desired because it was very insta-love which really felt more like lust. I don't believe this couple will last forever which clearly means I wasn't sold on this romance.
Overall, it was a good political mystery with a sprinkling of MM "romance".
☆I was able to read an advanced copy of this title and am reviewing voluntarily and honestly my own thoughts, opinion and reactions based on that copy.☆
Romantic suspense is my favorite subgenre. Too often, though, I find myself skimming through common tropes or reading the end in order to keep myself engaged. No shame. Life’s short.
But once again Jacki James has written a novel that blasts my reading presets to pieces. I couldn’t leave this story until I finished it, and wanted to start over when I was done. It’s that good.
This is a bodyguard/dude in distress story, but in name only. Roman is too upfront and open to be the usual overbearing jerk who needs a personality transplant; Trey is too self-aware and intelligent to be the typical adorkably naive guy. Their banter and growing romance are sizzling, steamy fun. Add in an unexpected plot twist at the end that added to the tension, and I was hooked beginning to end. I love when that happens!
My quibble: This is both an engrossing suspense story and a swoony romance. It is also the start of a series, so bits and pieces are sprinkled throughout to introduce future MCs, all of whom are attention-grabbers. Which bodes well for future installments, but got a bit distracting in certain spots.
Waiting for the next one in the series is already difficult.
