Release Day Review: POTUS | Selena Laurence (@selenalaurence) – Author


POTUS_1600x2400 copy


Once Upon a Time, a woman was elected as Commander in Chief.    No, it’s not Olivia Pope! That would be scandalous.  It’s Jessica Hampton, a widow whose husband died in a plane crash.  Jessica Hampton is balancing matters of national security and a non-existing personal life.

POTUS is a timeless romance that flips the script with a female widow as President.  Imagine your best friend, a Senator from Texas, barging through the doors of the Oval Office and setting up a double date. Its pure wackadoodle, right? However, the author can pull it off.

Kamal Masri is the Egyptian ambassador to the United States.  He is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome.   He had me at “Your staff disrespects you.” From their first introduction, it was kismet.  It was all heat, pent-up desire and longing rolled into a perfect package.  He immediately becomes her confident and friend.  She takes care of the country. He takes care of her.  Oh my! Sign me up immediately.

The storyline is surprising sweet and erotic at the same time.  As a widow, it would be hard to create scenarios of sex scenes rolling around the sheets in the Lincoln Bedroom.  How do you make a total unbelievable scenario believable and sexy?  Immediately, you have questions with an eye roll.

How did she get elected?

Why did she get elected?

She can’t date.  She can’t have casual sex. She can’t indulge in phone sex? She can’t indulge in a little kink. So, what must a 37-year-old single woman with a healthy appetite for sex do to get love and affection while negotiating   peace treaties and trade agreements?

POTUS works because the story doesn’t take itself too seriously.  It has the right mix of political elements to create a credible foundation before indulging in flights of Patriotism and Heroism. It will take you by surprise and make you exhale.

Its #KINKapproved  with 4 KINKS!  Source: Advanced Reader Copy kindly gifted by author


A President beloved by her nation.

Jessica Hampton is the heir to a political dynasty. For nearly ten years she has given up everything in order to fulfill her late husband’s legacy. But now, as her first, and she hopes only, presidential term draws to a close, she wants nothing more than to finish with the dignity her family demands. But when Jessica begins to negotiate an important Middle East accord with the sexy Egyptian Ambassador, being President takes a back seat to being a woman, and she will be forced to choose between the Ambassador she might love, the nation she’s sworn to serve, and the family who’s given her everything.

A son trapped by his father.

Kamal Masri knows all about being an heir. He’s not only Egypt’s Ambassador to the U.S., he’s the first-born son of one of the world’s wealthiest men. His father has controlled his fortune, his career, and now possibly his life. Because when the Egyptian parliament instructs Kamal to negotiate an accord that threatens his father’s illegal business dealings, all hell is about to break loose, and Kamal will be forced to choose between the American President he might love, the nation he’s sworn to serve, and the father who’s given him everything.
