From the bestselling author of Suddenly Royal comes the first in a sparkling new series about America’s favorite royal—the First Daughter.
Everyone makes mistakes, especially in college. But when you’re the daughter of the President of the United States, any little slip up is a huge embarrassment. Maddie McGuire’s latest error in judgment lands her in police custody, giving the press a field day. Agreeing to do community service as penance and to restore her tattered reputation, Maddie never dreams incredibly good looking but extremely annoying vice president’s son, Jake Simmon, will be along for the ride.
Recently returning from Afghanistan with a life-altering injury, Jake is wrestling with his own demons. He doesn’t have the time or patience to deal with the likes of Maddie. They’re like oil and water and every time they’re together, it’s combustible. But there’s a thin line between love and hate, and it’s not long before their fiery arguments give way to infinitely sexier encounters.
When Jake receives devastating news about the last remaining member of his unit, the darkness he’s resisted for so long begins to overwhelm him. Scared to let anyone close, he pushes Maddie away. But she isn’t about to give up on Jake that easily. Maddie’s fallen for him, and she’ll do anything to keep him from the edge as they both discover that love is a battlefield and there are some fights you just can’t lose.
6 Reasons to read Bedmates
- It’s about the adult children of the President and Vice President
- The romance is a slow burn. Seriously I don’t know how these characters lived through the torture.
- The banter between Maddie & Jake is great. You can tell they’ve known each other for a long time.
- It deals with some heavy issues in a relateable way.
- You can’t help but cheer for Maddie & Jake and hope they can work through their issues.
- You also see how some families put their image above their family in politics.
I really enjoyed this book. Seriously, I read it in a day, and couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait to see what the next book in this series will be about.
