The guilty pleasure of this political season is Commander in Chief. Book #2 in the White Series by Katy Evans. It’s the continuing story of Charlotte falling in love with Matt Hamilton, the future President of the United States.
It’s pure escapism. As a character, Charlotte is escaping into the world of POTUS as much as we are as a reader. It’s a ridiculously charming tale of Cinderella, a timeless classic.
Charlotte gets her Prince Charming, Matt Hamilton, and moves into the castle, i.e. White House. As a fairy tale, the story follows a predictable pattern. It’s sweet, light, innocent and beautiful.
It’s about falling in love against the backdrop of politics and the daily grind of Presidential duties mix with a little intrigue even though the story drags at certain points. If you are looking for angst, this is not the story. I never knew I crave drama in my romance stories. I was hoping for a few scandals like Charlotte moving into the White House as acting First Lady, a paid position.
However, in the end its romance! It’s pure romance with no drama, no angst and no groveling. The details of their married life are beautiful and thoughtful. Matty, their son steals the show, if that’s even possible in a book.
He was born in the White House which is the only home he knows. From the mind of a 2 year old – the most epic dialogue between mother and son:
“Why do they all want to be Dad?”
“They all want to be pwesident.” He frowns menacingly.
The innocence of a child, home and family. I repeat pure romance.
