I did not think I would enjoy this book. I got it into my head – without any evidence to the fact – that it would not be my kind of read. I could not imagine why I had agreed to review. But thank God I did agree - to review that is - because I was wrong on all counts. The book is a polished gem. It’s smooth, it’s sleek, it’s easy to read without being trite or simplistic and it’s also extremely funny, with a little suspense thrown in as well.
POTUS, the President of the United States – not the present incumbent, I hasten to add – is a lackadaisical, absent minded, woolly headed sleaze ball who has little interest in anything other than screwing as many women as his entourage can procure for his service, all of whom – the women that is – have to be security vetted. This in itself causes chaos enough but in the course of one particularly steamy encounter the President manages to lose, misplace or have stolen from the back pocket of his pants, the holiest of all the holy grails of his office, to wit a credit card like piece of plastic on which are engraved the nuclear codes.
The storm – one might almost call it a holocaust – that follows the discovery of this loss had me perched on the edge of my seat in suspense in one minute and falling from it in laughter the next. From start to end the book is truly a romp and the end itself which, alas, comes all too soon, is simply superb. For in the end all get what they wholly deserve.
Transformed – POTUS by Suzanne Falter & Jack Harvey (New Heights Publishing). Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives and those without political alignment, I thoroughly recommend it to you.
D. A Barker (author of “Killing for Christmas” & “What Am I?”.
Charley is getting married to Electra and he can't believe he is so lucky to have found her.
They are in Las Vegas and he works as a protector for the President.
She is a new agent and knows how to drive the car defensively. She works at the farm in VA so it's a bit difficult for them to get together.
President is just a kid and lives with his mother at the White House. The biscuit is crucial. It holds codes that deal with nuclear things.
Charley has to also find girls for the president after they are interrogated...
Story is also following Electra as she gambles and wins big...
Lots of secrets and they come at you from all angles as people know one another from their previous lifes. Everything and ten some of things you can just about imagine: mafia, drugs, prostitutes, trans gender relations, homosexual relations...It's all so believable also.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.
Part of what I love about this series is how flawed the characters are. Charley is one of the most charismatic and engaging transmen I have ever encountered in fiction, but his polyamorous heart continues to challenge his relationship with Electra, and it is becoming increasingly clear that he is not very good at the day-to-day aspect of his job.
As for Electra, she is a complex woman, an ex-wife and an ex-dominatrix. She never expected to fall in love with someone like Charley, and certainly never expected that her refusal to shy away from danger would see her in CIA training. She has her own challenges with intimacy and commitment, but she has the personality and sense of personal responsibility that could, ironically, make her a better CIA agent than Charley.
It would be easy to use this story as a political commentary on the current POTUS, but Falter & Harvey limit themselves to one offhand remark about how his presidency made it possible for a single rich kid with no political experience to buy himself the job. The first half of the story is largely concerned with him using Charley to arrange blind dates, but just when that is starting to become a bit tedious, two critical events take place - he loses the country's nuclear codes, and he becomes enamored of Charley's dominatrix fiancee.
From there, the slow-burning thriller kicks into high gear, mixing action and farce in equal measure. After a bit of a sombre second book, Transformed: POTUS is something of a return to form, a story that stands tall alongside the original San Francisco adventure.
